It’s no secret. Tweens and teens are always amongst the hardest people to shop for during the holiday season. In my experience, around the age of… oh, eight? …their likes and dislikes begin to become specific. What’s cool to us is sometimes (usually) not so cool to them.
So what do you do?
Below are a few no-fail gift ideas that are sure to please the tween boy on your list.
Sporty kids all look to Under Armour to keep them comfortable while playing and practicing sports. They turn to HeatGear® when it’s hot, ColdGear® when it’s cold, and AllSeasonGear® between the extremes… and the best part is that this gear is also fade and shrink resistant, so it stands the test of time. Kids Headquarters has some great Under Armour styles not only for big kids but for toddlers as well. You can see my little guy in his Under Armour gear on my Instagram.
While buying socks doesn’t sound like the most exciting gift to give, believe me tween and teen boys cannot get enough of these socks– and their price tags range from $14 and up– making them a great gift!
- Skinny Jogger Pants Skinny jogger pants are all the rage right now for boys and for girls. Old Navy and the Gap have a great selection and my oldest son loves his Zoo York jogger set that you can find at JCPenney and Kohls!
- Portable iPhone charger Teens rely heavily on their devices– especially their smartphones. Their batteries are constantly draining and needing a charge.
- Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera
What’s new is old and what’s old is new again! Similar to the old school polaroid camera, the Fuji Instax camera uses film, develops on the spot and kids cannot get enough of it. This gift might be better for an older tween, but never the less it is one that is sure to impress. And if the teen or tween on your list already owns one, fret not– from photo albums to camera cases, there are a slew of accessories you can find.
