When it comes to buying a gift for your teenage son or daughter it can be extremely difficult. Not only do they already seem to have everything, but you also need to keep on top of what is ‘cool’ and ‘fashionable’ – because they won’t waste any time telling you if it isn’t!
Each year you struggle with what to buy, desperately searching the shops for inspiration, finally find something suitable – then before you know it, it is time for the process to start again.
Well, that struggle is over, at least for the next five presents anyway! Here are a few gift ideas, that might be the inspiration you need to help put a smile on a teens face!
- Personalised Gift
You can get pretty much anything personalised these days – which will be a special and unique gift that your teen can treasure for years and years to come.
How about a personalised necklace for your daughter or a T-shirt for your son or even the other way round? You could even get photos printed on to marshmallows. Although these may not last as long, what could be better than a box of marshmallows with their favourite photos printed on the front?
- Selfie Stick
Teens are on their phone 24/7, so anything that will assist in this will be loved. There’s not a lot teenagers enjoy to do more with their mobiles than take selfies – the only problem is when their arm just isn’t long enough to get everything in the photo. It’s fine when they just want a close up of their face, but when they try to squeeze in with a group of friends someone will always get cut off! That’s where a selfie stick comes in handy! It is a gift they will really appreciate at a time when taking photos and uploading them to Facebook and Instagram is a daily occurrence.
For a teen, watches aren’t only a device on which to tell the time. They are part of their outfit! Get the right watch and they will be wearing it for years, because unlike clothes, it won’t go out of fashion! Tic Watches provide the designer name, without the designer price tag – which both you and your teen will love. Plus, they might stop being late once they have a smart, shiny new watch to tell the time on (although this is not a guarantee!)
- An Experience
The last thing on most teenagers’ minds is spending time with their parents. They’re far too busy hanging out with their friends and getting to know the opposite sex! So, how about an experience that you can do together? The memories will last far longer than any present could. From afternoon tea or a trip to the Zoo to hot air ballooning or sky diving – whatever you choose will be a fun experience for your teen and the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time together.
You won’t be able to get the smile off your daughter’s face – aka One Direction’s biggest fan – when you surprise her with tickets to see the band in concert. Or how about tickets for your son to see his favourite comedian? Check out your local theatre for upcoming tours!
