Christmas Gift Ideas for Tweens and Teens

If you’re after Christmas gifts for tweens and teens, this Christmas guide should help.

This is possibly one of the HARDEST groups in the family to buy for.

Teens can be fussy as they start to work out what they do and don’t like. And often, they don’t want anything because if they’ve got a job, they save to buy what they need themselves.

I talked to some tween and teen mums who had daughters, so I was able to get some ideas on a gift guide for the girls in this age bracket… but for the boys… I have no clue. Thankfully, Katrina Chambers put together a fantastic post on what to buy tween and teen boys. Check it out here.

In my list of Christmas Gift Ideas for Tweens and Teens, most would suit a female tween or teen, but there are some gifts that are unisex like the alarm clock, game and the letters board. Gift vouchers for movies, iTunes and EB Games are said to be very popular if you do head down the gift voucher route.

When thinking about teens and tweens, it’s certainly a time of experimenting with makeup, displaying accessories in their room, mobile phone accessories or accessorising their personal style. You can introduce new habits like keeping a gratitude journal too and team this with some pencils with encouraging slogans.

Aquapurse is a new clutch concept that can benefit teens that head to music festivals or concerts. The bag is a water bottle with a purse attached for a mobile phone, money and cards and any other essentials teens might need when they are out.

If your teen graduated from high school, a personalised teddy from My Teddy with the year of graduation could be another gift idea. My Teddy offers an affordable range of personalized teddies. (This can be a great gift idea too for a Baby’s First Christmas)

Whatever you buy, keep the receipt just in case it needs to be exchanged. There are a mix of lux and budget gifts in this guide.
