How hard is it to buy anything for the finicky teen in your family? It seems as though everything you choose for them is “lame” or so out of what is happening now that they end up giving it to a younger sibling shortly after the fun of opening the gifts is over. If you really want to make your teenager happy, you need to know what is trending now and not what was hot last year. It does not have to be a chore to find your teen the best Christmas presents. Just look below for the best gifts for teens for the holidays:
• Customizable Miniature Ecosystem
This is probably the best gift for the teen in your family who is worried about the ecology and who is always conscious about recycling and subjects along those lines. For the busy teen, this ecosystem does not take a great deal of work but offers growth that can be monitored over time. There are rocks and plants along with shrimps and snails. They can watch this all grow into a complete and vital ecosystem for their own room.
• Griffin Karaoke for iPod
If the teen in your life already has an iPod and they love to sing, then you need to get the Griffin Karaoke for their iPod. This comes with a list of songs and has a microphone that can be plugged in to sing along. They can have a blast with their friends singing to their favorite stars. The best part is that it is portable so they can take it to the beach or the park and have an impromptu jam session.
• EyeClops Mini Projector
This is a hand sized projector that can be placed on any table and directs the image or movie onto the wall and projects the image in a much larger format. It can also be connected to any device such as a DVD player or video game console.
Buying presents for your teen does not have to lead to a rolling of the eyes or the gift being given away to a sibling or friend. Anyone of the gifts listed above can be used for a good long time and can bring that light of joy to their eyes when they open it. Give them gifts that they can use over and over and that gets them involved with the ecology as well.
