I took a recent poll over on Instagram to see what gift guides you were still looking for and second only to men, was a gift guide for teens and tweens. And I get it. They can definitely be a tough group to buy for.
This age group has long outgrown their toys but is still too young for many of the gifts you’d buy for an adult. And they tend to be a bit…shall we say particular. Their tastes seem to change faster than the wind shifts direction and they don’t always have the best grasp on budgets.
So I started doing some research and I didn’t have to go far. I have an almost 11-year old (going on 25) daughter and an almost 13-year-old son and they were more than happy to school me on their wish list! It turns out, tweens and teens aren’t nearly as difficult to shop for as I’d feared.
THE GIRLS VS. THE BOYS
And although many of these gifts are “boy gifts” or “girl gifts”, there are many unexpected androgenous choices as well. For example, one of my son’s buddies loves to put colored chalk in his hair. It’s kind of his thing. And my daughter would love nothing more than being outside with her friends on her hoverboard or skateboard!
I’ve covered lots of budgets and price points in this gift guide for this group as well. So whether you’re looking for a fun splurge or a cute stocking-stuffer, I’ve got you covered!
