The Best Gift Ideas for Teen Boys and Girls

post featured image

Is it just me or are tweens and teens the hardest age group to shop for? On an everyday basis it can be a challenge to find things they truly like (and will actually use), but add in the pressure of the holidays and it can feel especially intimidating.

Luckily, I have quite a bit of experience shopping for this age range, so I wanted to put together a guide of gift ideas for you. Regardless of what your teens are into, these presents are sure to be a hit. I made sections of teen girl gift ideas and teen boy gift ideas, so all you have to do is hit “buy now” — the holidays just got a lot easier.

Teen Girl Gift Ideas

Silk Pillowcase and Scrunchie Set

The perfect pillowcase set to kickstart only the sweetest of dreams as we head into a new year.

Cat Eye Sunglasses

These cute shades are such a steal (they’re under $20) and they have glowing reviews.

Wool Rib Beanie

One winter staple that will always get good use: a classic rib knit beanie. This one is made with 100% wool that will actually keep your teen’s head warm. Plus, the quality is made to last.

UGG Ultra Mini Classic Boots

This particular style of UGG boots was highly coveted last year, and for good reason. They’re cozy, easy to throw on, and go with so many outfits.

ALO Aspen Love Puffer Jacket

A neutral and timeless puffer jacket that can easily transition from day to night wear. This coat also comes in a rich espresso color as well as a pretty fog hue.

Le Pliage Nylon Travel Bag

This classic tote makes the ideal travel bag. It’s surprisingly roomy and super durable — a piece she’ll have for years to come.

ALO Classic Sneakers

You can’t go wrong with a simple pair of white sneakers. These are trending right now and are known for how comfortable they are.

Wundermost Square-Neck Bodysuit

It seems like teen girls practically live in bodysuits. This one is a great wardrobe staple that holds up well after many washes.

Teen Boy Gift Ideas

Vintage Soft Hoodie

One item teens can never have enough of? Hoodies. I love the straight silhouette on this one because it makes it look a bit nicer than the traditional baggy varities.

Adidas Sneakers

These lace-up sneakers are sure to get good wear since they can be paired with just about any outfit.

Corduroy Ball Cap

The corduroy fabric on this baseball hat totally won me over, and your guy is sure to love it too.

Chanel Travel Spray Set

These three mini scents have woody notes and are a great size to tote along in a sports bag.

Lululemon Shorts

If you’re struggling to pick out a gift, go with these Lululemon shorts. They’re soft, breathable, and come in the prettiest shades.

Wunderlust Backpack

This water-repellent backpack is another Lululemon find that I’m totally digging. It could be used for so many different outings/occasions and has a polished and sophisticated look.

Flannel Pajamas

If your son has been wearing the same pajamas (or basketball shorts) for years on end, it’s time to update his stash. A pair of flannel joggers is a good go-to.

Aviator Sunglasses

Aviators are a no-brainer for the guy who always has his shades on. Plus, they add an instant “cool” factor.

Kiehl’s All-in-One Wash

While he might not be overly ecstatic about this gift, it’s likely something he could use. It’s an all-in-one cleanser that works on both hair and skin — say hello to more shower space.
