Believe it or not, the holiday season is just around the corner. While you have a pretty good idea of what to get most people on your gift giving list, the thought of choosing something for your teenage son or daughter (or niece or nephew) is giving you the chills. Teens can be notoriously fussy about gifts and you want to give the special kiddo in your life something he or she will truly love.
No worries, intrepid holiday shopper, the following gift ideas are sure to satisfy even the most particular teen in your life.
If your teen loves playing console or PC games, a gaming chair is a perfect gift. They come in a number of options, including the Wireless Video Gaming Chair that looks like a basic recliner, but is chock full of state-of-the-art tech. In addition to using it for video games, your teen can connect it to your home theater system for an amazing movie watching experience. The wireless system can be connected in a flash to an Xbox, PlayStation or other gaming system, and the side control panel has all of the controls your fave gamer will need to adjust the volume, bass and other features.
A Monogrammed Journal
Many teen girls love to journal; if this is true for your special teenager, you can’t go wrong with a Flower Monogram Journal from Etsy. The beautiful book can be personalized with her first name and comes in aqua or white; it features 112 sheets that are lined on one side and blank on the other, and it includes an attached white grosgrain ribbon bookmark so she can easily find where she left off. Add a set of nice writing pens, or if she likes to sketch, some high-quality colored pencils and she will be ready to jot down all of her inner thoughts or do some serious drawing.
Anything Bob Ross
Teenagers love Bob Ross — really, they do. The afro-sporting, relaxed-voice painting guy we all knew and loved “in our day” is back on reruns and teens understandably adore him. Bob Ross merchandise would be a hit with just about any teen; for example, the lunch box features a painted silhouette of everyone’s fave artist with one of Bob’s classic sayings, “There are no mistakes, just happy accidents.” Pair it with one of the other Bob Ross items like a bobblehead or a Christmas ornament and you will have just created a perfect gift for your teen.
A Sarcastic T-Shirt
Here’s a major news flash: teens can be sarcastic at times. If this sounds like your fave teenager, this “I Speak Fluent Sarcasm” t-shirt is a perfect gift that will probably elicit a good laugh. The shirt comes in a variety of options and sizes, and is meant for boys or girls.
