Christmas is nearing the corner and you’re teenage children are making subtle hints on what they want for Christmas. By the time boys and girls have reached their teenage years, they have already developed their own personalities. Some grow up to be achievers who would prefer spending the day reading, or sporty and outdoorsy whom you just can’t keep indoors. Some grow up to be trendsetters and some become highly adept with playing the piano or painting. You really want your gift to be valuable, but without burning a hole in your pocket. Here are some gift ideas for your teenage sons and daughters that suit their personalities best:
Gifts for Teenage Boys
Nearing 18 years old, your teenage son is giving out hints about purchasing a secondhand car that he saw somewhere. However, the cost of purchasing a car can be hard on the family’s annual or monthly budget. Instead, give him something to look forward to: driving test courses to prepare him for when he can finally drive his own car. If your teenage son is into video games, check out the latest video games in the market. Take a picture of his current video game stash and bring it at the store so that the shop clerk can decide the newest versions of these games or perhaps, a new game he doesn’t have yet. If you have a creative teenage boy, get him a new camera or some new lens for his old ones. Your achiever son will thank you if you get him books or foreign language lessons. Your trend setter teenager will love gift cards for his favorite shop so he can choose a new shirt or trousers in the style he prefers.
Gifts for Teenage Girls
Teenage girls can be exciting to shop gifts for. Sporty teenage girls will love a new set of jersey shirts or gift cards from her favorite sporting goods store. Trendy teenagers will thank you if you give them a set of lip gloss, a magazine subscription for their favorite fashion magazine, or new shoes. Your geeky teenager will want a new computer game to tinker with or a new gadget. Of course, your music-loving teenager will praise the high heavens if you give her the latest album of her favorite band, a new set of bass headphones, or perhaps, an iPod. Your achiever daughter will love books, lots and lots of it. And perhaps, a set of fountain pens she can practice writing with. Include a set of Moleskine notebooks and you’re the instant favorite parent.
These are just a few gift ideas tailored to your teenage son or daughter’s personality. However, the best bet for finding a gift for them is to ask them yourself. Make them write down a wish list so you can have a bit of a leeway when choosing a gift. Caution them about making the wish reasonable and within the bounds of your budget so you can grant their wish come Christmas time. You’ll be sure to receive a heartfelt thank you when the holidays come.
