Birthday Gift Ideas for Teenagers

teenagers birthday gifts

It is fairly easy to buy birthday gifts for teenagers because it’s that age where kids are experimental with their interests and are also most active. But finding the right gift can also be a challenge, since teen years see constant change in likes and interests. They may be passionate about one thing today and another tomorrow. So how do you know what to gift your teenage son or daughter, or a favourite niece or nephew? Well, there are a few gift options that every teen would accept and appreciate. Read on to know more about them:

  1. Kindle

    Reading is a good habit and if you already know about the recipient's love for reading, gift them a Kindle. It is eco-friendly (saves paper) and cost effective. If the teenager is not into reading, a Kindle could also help in inculcating the habit for good.

  2. Polaroid camera

    If the teen is interested in photography, a Polaroid camera could be one of the best birthday gifts to nurture that skill set. And if they are not taking photography that seriously, it still makes up for a great gift that can be used to capture memories.

  3. Assorted chocolates’ basket

    Gift baskets are the safest options to give if you aren’t really sure about the teenager’s preferences. It would also fit your pocket if you don't have a big budget. There are many gift basket options like gourmet, snacks, and chocolates, available online.

  4. Speakers/headphones

    Which teenager doesn’t like music? They usually spend hours listening to their favourite tunes on their phones. So for their birthday, it could be a great idea to gift them a nice Bluetooth speaker with strong bass and treble.

  5. Xbox

    This gift could probably make you any teenager’s favourite person. A Xbox is something that every kid dreams of, and some even try to save for months to buy one for themselves. Xbox is highly recommended for those who like action, imagination, role play and are enticed by virtual reality.

  6. DIY Grow your plant kit

    Nothing makes a teenager more responsible than taking care of a pet or plant. However, it can be tough to decide if they are ready to take care of a pet and what kind they like. So, gift them a ‘grow your plant kit’, wherein, they’d have to start by putting in the seeds to watering them every day, and nurture the seeds to life.

  7. Journal

    Journaling should start at an early stage. It is not only great for one’s mental health, but it also gives you a lot of room to breathe and express your thoughts in the most honest form. Gifting a teen a journal can encourage them to write regularly and even hone communication skills.

  8. Game tickets

    If there is going to be a game in the local area or if any specific series like Super Bowl is coming up, gift them some nice seats to the game. It will make their birthday extra special, and something they’d fondly remember for a long time.
