Christmas Gifts for Teens – 2019 Edition
How it’s already Christmas shopping season time again is besides me. Here we are – the pumpkins and Halloween decor has come down, and up goes the Christmas decor. The holidays are in full force, which means it’s time to create your gift list and start shopping.
With 2 teens in the house – our Christmas Gifts for Teens list was created by our teenagers. I have a teen girl and a teen boy. Both who typically do not care to contribute to Digital Mom Blog, for some reason were eagerly kind in sharing their input on this post. So folks, these teenage girl Christmas gifts and Christmas gifts for teen boys are coming from reliable sources!
Let’s shop these Christmas gift ideas for teens:
While yes, this is a pricey gift - and would definitely file this under large or big Christmas gift. The Macbook Air is a Christmas gift for teens that will lasts for years.
We passed down an old Macbook Pro to our son, and it FINALLY died after it hit the 10-year mark! Apple laptops are made to last. This is a gift that keeps giving.
Apple AirPods are another great Christmas gift for teens. Boy, girl - it doesn't matter. If your teen has an iPhone - these AirPods are all the rage with the teens. Just make sure you turn on tracking.
If you are not on team Apple, check out these Amazon Echo Buds as an alternative to Apple AirPods. The Echo Buds are the newest trend for ear buds and have amazing reviews.
Oh, the Hydro Flask! As silly as this Christmas gift teens may seem, I am all about my kids keeping hydrated. If that means spending $40ish on something they will use to hydrate, fine - but it's a Christmas gift.
We bought a Nintendo Switch when they first released, and I have to say - both teen girl and teen boy LOVE it. It's a constant fight to determine who is hiding the Nintendo Switch in their bedroom.
This bluetooth beanie hat has been under the Christmas tree for the last 3 years. In fact last year, we gave these to the niece and nephew as well. Just a note: try to avoid putting the bluetooth beanie hat into the washing machine.
Give the gift of music! A subscription to Amazon Music is like giving your teen any album that they want! This was on both of our teens' Christmas lists.
Looking for a fun board game? The What Do You Meme game is better for older teens but definitely fun.
Encourage your teenager to take up a new instrument. The ukulele is all the rage with teens now a days. This is an easy and low cost instrument that makes an awesome Christmas gift for teens.
A Twitch Prime Subscription is another gift that both my teen girl and teen boy want for Christmas. Both are gamers and both are always watching Twitch.
We have all heard the studies on how teens don't get enough sleep. The weighted blanket is an awesome gift to help your teen get a better nights rest.
Christmas Gifts for Teen Girls
Now that we've looked generic teens Christmas gifts - let's talk girls. These are teenage girl Christmas gift ideas brought to you by my 16-year-old teen daughter.
Under $10, get a huge pack of velvet scrunchies. Apparently, it's now a thing for girls to give guys their scrunchies. Heads up to boy moms who are finding scrunchies in their boy's backpacks!
These fun socks make a great stocking stuffer for teen girls.
Hello VSCO girls - if your teen girl is channeling the 90s, then a pair of Birkenstocks is most likely on her Christmas wish list. Yes, as a child of the 90s I had Birkenstocks. Good news is that while they are pricey, they last FOREVER!
If you have a teen daughter who drives, fun car decor like this plush steering wheel cover and knob set make a fun gift.
Just drive thru the high school parking lot and check out the rear view mirror of the cars. You can tell which are the teen girls by the car mirror accessories!
This folding hair dryer is awesome, especially if your daughter requires a hair dryer that is easy to travel with.
This hair product will straighten AND curl hair. The perfect 2-in-1 hair styling product for your teen girl's Christmas gift!
I was told that this is a must. The teen daughter then spelled out c-o-l-o-u-r to make sure that I purchased the right name brand. Colourpop eye shadow palettes are apparently the in thing in the teen girl make-up world.
Gifts for Boy Teenager
Teen Boy Christmas Gifts - this idea list is for anyone searching for gift ideas for teen boys. I will say that I feel like boys tend to be more expensive because girls are easy to buy small gifts like scrunchies and make-up for. That said, we did include Christmas gifts for teen boys that weren't too expensive and outrageous.
Funny game shirts always make a great teen boy gift.
Your teen boy can bring this bluetooth speaker everywhere from the pool to school.
Finding toys for teen boys isn't the easiest. The Airzooka is an air gun that shoots pockets of air.
For the teen boy who loves Mac and Cheese - here is a rapid mac cooker.
This is another teen boy Christmas gift that I purchased last year for my teen that he still plays. This affordable gift was a fun addition without costing a lot of money.
The best alarm clock for teen boys. Nothing says WAKE UP like this loud alarm clock that rolls around beeping. If you have a teen boy who is a heavy sleeper and won't wake up in the mornings, this is the perfect gift.
Next on our Christmas Gifts for Teen Boys list is the Tile Mate. If you have a son who drives who loses his keys, or a kid who loses his backpacks - get a tile mate to help them keep track of their lost items.
The hoverboard is still a popular teen Christmas gift! This hoverboard has a bluetooth speaker and is self balancing.
The funny nose pencil sharpener makes a great teen boy stocking stuffer.
Do you have a gamer? This affordable gaming headset works with Xbox One PS4 Playstation 4, Headphones Computer PC Mic Stereo Fortnite Gamer Microphone for Skype Xbox one s Xbox and Nintendo Switch Games.
Get your teen boy outside and playing with this Spikeball kit.
While yes, we do a whole lot of talking about technology here on Digital Mom Blog – these teen Christmas gift ideas are neutral. We are sharing both non tech gifts and tech gifts for teens.
