Over 100 Gift Ideas For Teens


Thank you for visiting this post – issue is, it’s 3 years old. So check out my 2016, brand spanking new Gift Guide For Teen Girls. (It’s linked…and it’s great.)


So, as I do officially love each and every one of you reading this (except possibly you; I see what you do when you’re alone . . . eugh, come on now.) and I want you all to be happy and the rest, I decided to share my epiphany with you.

It’s almost Christmas.

Okay, don’t look at me like that – I know it’s only August, but this year is going really quickly. And as soon as we hit September, it is pretty much the climb-up to Christmas.Now, smart people know that getting all your Christmas presents at Christmas is not a good idea. Okay. It leads to panicking and stress and “OMG, BUT I NEED TO PAY MY RENT, SO I CAN’T BUY BLAH-BLAH THIS! SAD TIMES!” and “WAIT, WHAT DOES ____ WANT, OH GOSH, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO GET THEM?!”.

But I’m not here to bully you into doing your Christmas shopping ridiculously early. I’m just here to help you. And this list isn’t just for Christmas – it can be for birthdays, for when you accidentally hit them with a car and put them in hospital, for when you realize you forgot them at Christmas . . . anything. So let’s start, shall we?

Okay, so as most of the traffic that reaches this page is from America, I decided to update this to an American gift guide; the British version however is still available and exactly the same, but has moved to the new location of – https://okaaythen.wordpress.com/2014/04/30/over-100-teen-gift-ideas-uk/


As every present-buyer knows, teens are ridiculously hard to buy for – especially since we never know what we want. It’s not our fault, okay. Don’t judge us. Hormones and that jazz. (That excuse usually works . . .) But I have basically given you the perfect solution – OVER 100 PRESENT IDEAS FOR A TEENAGER, FROM A TEENAGER. So stop freaking out and crying about what you’re going to buy and read on. (By the way, there are pretty picture examples and links for you too. Aren’t I great? I am. I really am.) Obviously, quite a few of these are girly, but there are some guy’s gift ideas too, don’t worry!

Shameless self promo time – follow my Instagram account and you can buy the sweater in my picture here!


Let me tell you exactly what you’re looking at in this list:

  1. Best Friend Gifts. (I added this because I’ve realised that a lot of people landing here are looking for gifts for their BFF, and so it is my civic duty to help them.)
  2. Up to $10 gifts
  3. Up to $25 gifts
  4. MONEY IS NOW NO OBJECT, LET’S LIST SOME REALLY COOL PRESENT IDEAS! (Most of these ideas are around $50, with a few exceptions being over)
  5. Really cool DIY gift ideas (that don’t look ridiculously tacky, don’t worry)
  6. The really cool presents. I don’t want to give these ones away, but these are the ones you want to give your teen, if you want them to take your side in the divorce.
  7. The cool, interesting ways to give money (for all you failures out there that haven’t got time to find a present)


So today we’re going to start with Best Friend Presents. Because how on earth are you supposed to take cute BFF pictures if you don’t have the matching jewellery, or the cute tops?

Oh, before we get into it; if you want to buy your teen clothes, check out this guide on what to but teen girls that want clothes for Christmas.


Bestie Gifts

I realise that a lot of people may not need this category, so feel free to skip it – but, if you are at a loss for what to get your teenager, you could get them something for both them and their best friend. Okay there was so much cute best friend jewelry that I had to make a separate section.

First up on the best friend gift section, let’s hit you with some cute.

I just wanted to get a few (cheap) ideas out of the way, so that all you step-third-cousins-once-removed have some (not so unique or weird or interesting, but quite simply good enough) present ideas to get you through the day. Did I succeed? I did? Okay, let’s get to the good stuff!

Money Is No Object!


(I’m the one dancing (SOKA) and all you present buyers are the one frowning (KATARA). Sorry, I had to prove to myself that I still love avatar.) Anyways.

  1. Let’s start with an all-time winner – a laptop. Obviously, these are useful and great blah blah, but they can also be really cute too. Just saying.

    2. Macbook
      Apple MacBook Pro MD101LL/A 13.3-Inch Laptop $852.98  Basically a laptop . . . but taken to the complete next level. No teen would ever complain at a Macbook. My best friend Amber is pining for one.

Okay, so I am way too excited about the really, really, really cool presents to finish that list right now. But still! Let’s continue!

when-you-finish-first-year-exams-1 - Copy (2)
Now that the ideas are done, allow me to share with you . . . some GIFTS!

Personalized/DIY Presents
I’m not even going to lie, some of these presents I want. (And I’m so using for some of my friends  No, I most certainly am not using any of these for my friends, the element of surprise still exists, okay!?)

  1. Money jar! With this gift, what you basically do is put all your spare change in it throughout the year and give it to somebody at Christmas. It’s cute. And, if you’re buying your Christmas shopping with cash, you could probably fill a jar with the leftover change you collect throughout the season.
  2. A movie night gift hamper; include a DVD, a bag of popcorn, some sweets and a drink. (If it’s a movie adapted from a book, include the book)
  3. A cupcake decorating kit.
  4. An ice cream decorating kit. (Yeah, I know I just did a cupcake-decorating set, but they’re so cute!
  5. This idea is actually adorable. I’m doing this for my best friend Amber.
  6. Buy a cheap set of drawers or whatever, find an image you like enough to put on it and, using modge podge, stick it on. (There was a tutorial I followed when making something like this, but it has disappeared. Sorry!
  7. A “decorate your room” kit – as a teen girl, I can confirm that a big percentage of us want a room covered with photos, posters, song lyrics and lights. This picture below is completely true. If you know the sort of thing your teenager likes, buy them some fairy lights, posters, photos of their friends, (or buy them ink and tell them to print out the things they want themselves), some pretty alphabet stickers and whatever you can think of and give them a DIY Decorate Your Room Kit.
  8. A photoframe money box – stick a photo of whatever the teen is saving up for (to travel the world, a certain college etc) and put it in a photoframe, then cut a slit in for money!
  9. A jar of fortune balls (but you can obviously write anything in these, so it could be “reasons I love you” or “texts I’ve sent you throughout the year”. Tutorial here > http://itsamakkie.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/wensjes-in-balletjes-zo-maak-je-het.html
  10. Okay, so I have an intense love for notebooks, right? What do you mean you already knew, no you didn’t – I was very subtle about it!  Here are some personalized notebook ideas. Buy a notebook for someone using any of these purposes http://www.hearthandmade.co.uk/search?q=notebook
  11. A spa day hamper
  12. Hot chocolate kit. I’m not talking those “cookie recipe in a jar, hehee” hot chocolate kit either. I’m talking, a mug, whipped cream, mini-marshmallow, chocolate shavings – the whole lot!
  13. “Winter sleepover in a box”. A gift I thought up for my cousin actually, as she lives in Devon and it gets bloody freezing down there. Basically, you get a pretty box and in it you put all the essentials for a winter sleepover – fluffy socks, a movie, popcorn, a blanket, hot chocolate mix, biscuits and a pair of pyjamas. We brits need our ways to battle the cold, after all.
  14. If you draw on a lightbulb, the patterns are thrown onto the wall; buy a set of lightbulbs (they could be coloured lightbulbs too. Just saying.) and draw patterns on them, box them and give them away.
  15. If you can think of something smart enough to fit, then this is quite cute and . . . well, everyone loves chocolate.

The Really Cool Presents

  1. A party. Obviously, this wouldn’t be a big surprise, or something they could open, but my parents always offer me a party or presents for my birthday and parties are always way more exciting. If you’re a great organizer, you could even do a surprise party.
  2. A complete wardrobe revamp. Any girl would love to walk into their room on Christmas day and see a brand new wardrobe. As long as you know what you’re buying and you keep their old clothes. And the receipts. I’ll do a post on clothes to buy teen girls later.
  3. Redecorate their room. This would be a great surprise – if you convinced them to sleep downstairs for the night and you worked during the night and completely redid the room, I guarantee they would love you. Just saying. I’ll do a post on cute teen room decorating ideas later.
  4. Day trip shopping in Paris with friends. (If you take the Eurostar, you can literally drive into France. It’s so cool.) Offer to pay for them and a friend, or offer to take them to Paris for the day. You could go shopping, or Disneyland Paris.
  5. Buy them a puppy. Puppies are seriously adorable.

Interesting ways to give money as a present

  1. Through “open when . . .” letters. Give a bunch of letters (wrapped up very prettily in a box, right?) with “open when . . . __________” written on and put money into those. Le example: “Open when . . . you’re feeling blue and you want chocolate” and like a pound coin; “Open when . . . you want to go to the cinema” and wehay a tenner. Do you get the gist?
  2. (This one is really cool, let me put this out there) During the night, fill their room with balloons and put money in them. In the morning, they’ll wake up to a really cool surprise. Unless they’re like me and they detest people coming into their room without warning. But that’s only because of mess – tell them to tidy their room and you should be good to go.
  3. Put it in a piggy bank and give it to the recipient.
  4. Put it in a “I’m saving for box”

    (This is a  gift under the Handmade/Personalized section you scrolled past earlier. Shame on you. Go back up.)
  5. In a photo album. You could always mix photos and notes, or an entire photo album of notes to someone (me. You should do that to me. Please.)

  6. Money Tape Dispenser – $3.25
    This is quite cool and you literally stick money bills onto tape and then the recipient pulls the money out; it makes a little (maybe ten one dollar bills) look like a lot too.

  7. Money Tree – $9.99
  8. Under an umbrella. Buy a nice umbrella, dangle money under it, close the umbrella and attach a note saying “for a rainy day”.
  9. Chocolate box of money!
  10. Like this.

Now my list (due on Halloween so I’m a few days late, yikes!) is done and all I have to worry about is hearing a scream from downstairs when my parents open their laptop and read my Google Doc (“She wants WHAT???”). And now I know what to get my siblings too! You’re awesome!

Thanks, this comment is awesome! My list is literally all clothes, LOL

Love this post! It’s so well thought out and it’s full of interesting and original ideas. Thank you for sharing!


Deeply appreciated. Could you point me towards an acceptable purveyor of fluffy socks? And appropriate PJ outlets? What are you views on backpacks/totes/handbags? Thanks again!

Backpacks – depends on the girl;I personally wouldn't. Most people I know hate them, but there are a few people that adore them. If I were you, I would stick to a tote or a handbag. You're welcome, happy to have helped:)

OMG these r really cool ideas thx!!!!


Would love some ‘open when’ envelope ideas for my teen daughter. Do you or other fans have some suggestions?

sure thing! let me think of a few
open when … you need a new jacket
open when … you need to dress up for a date
open when … a good new movie is out!
open when … your jeans are too small!
open when … you forgot your best friends birthday
open when … you used up all your pocket money

Thanks for this! It gave me some really excellent ideas for my niece and sisters-in-law.

thanks so much for this
just wondered if u had the link for the cute ice cream set???
Thank xxxx

I love Pinterest. Actually finding a pin that is based in the UK and giving ideas for us here is even better. Thank you sooo much 🙂

This is a great site. However i got so many ideas that my mom is going to go crazy when she sees my list. Thanks so much

you’re welcome and thanks! 🙂

this helped me decide what I want! thank you so much!

you’re welcome!

I love the ideas! The other blogs and websites post ideas that are obviously made by adults so most of the ideas pretty much suck. Here, there were way too many ideas I love and want to do! 🙂

Thank you! I hope this helps, have a good Christmas!

This is realllyyy good! Thank you so much

You’re welcome; thanks!

This is rubbish

well, i guess you’ll have to live with it

Just sayin’, that’s Aang not SokKa.

i thought Aang was bald? o.O

They wore disguises when hiding within fire nation villages

Oh, right right

Where is that bookshelf alcove thing with the bluish green walls from? It is wonderful.

Oh my gosh I’m the most unoriginal person ever so thx for all of the awesome ideas 🙂

You’re welcome; I hope it helped 😀

you can take a pic frame and put cool paper or cloth as the pic.. and give them that and a dry erase marker.. the glass is the dry erase board.

This is really cool – thanks so much! Btw the guy dancing was Aang not Sokka 😉

you’re very welcome! & aha thanks, im taking this as an excuse to have an Avatar marathon 😉

Merry Christmas

you too 🙂

This was BOMB!! Thank you soooo much! <3

You’re welcome! Glad you liked it!<3

PERFECTION. I totally needed this for xmas!!! 🙂

A HS/College graduation gift guide would be pretty helpful about now. Just saying….

Amazing….. Must say you have made hard efforts to make a list out of these gifts. Any teenager would love these gifts. 🙂

[…] we all remember this list’s predecessors – 100 Gift Ideas for Teens and 10 (Or More) Gift Ideas For Teen Friends, right? How could we forget the posts that, in certain […]

Haha some thought went in to this! I’m sixteen and this is so true 🙂

You know me so well!

thank you for your help!! You totally read my mind

youre welcome 🙂

thanks! you read my mind! ….creepy…

That is Aang dancing, not Sokka

Awesome! Very creative and helpful considering I have all boys and a few nieces. Thank you! Keep up the outstanding ideas.
For anybody out there this is true about what teenagers like.

literally gurl this is amazing! thank you so much i’ll defiantly use some of these and you’re so creative!

I really like this it has helped me a lot!!

i love thiss!!!!!!!

thanks! 😀

I love your ideas! Especially the unique money ideas!

you are a lifesaver I’ve been freaking out ?

Thank You so much!!!! I really like these ideas, especially the money and the open when… letters!!!

OK…… Any parents that are reading this…. Just know that teens absolutely HATE for their parents to decorate their room for them. If you want to redecorate their room, ask them what they want first! As a teen, I have room goals that my parents do not know about. so therefore, if my parents do anything without my consent, my head will pop off. Just ask them to write down specific things they would like for their room! Just a tip. hope this helps.

These ideas are awesome. Thank you so much for sharing,i will share it with my friends.

thank you! 🙂

This is really helpful. Thanks!

youre welcome! 🙂

This is exactly what i was looking for! most sites just have things they are selling, not really helping me considering i had no idea what to get my friend! thanks so much

You have been sooooo helpful. i want to do a lot of these ideas!!! <3 😀

Thank you! Happy to help! x
