Choosing Christmas gifts for little children is easy compared with the daunting prospect of buying for a teenager. It seems to be a universal truth that the older children get, the more difficult they are to buy for. However, fear not! With our fantastic list below, you are sure to find something that will satisfy even the fussiest teenager.
1) Micro Speed Scooter
Micro have a brilliant range of scooters that are teenage-friendly, including ones with fat tires for balance, or stunt models for the more adventurous. A fantastic choice is the fold-up Speed version, which should stop teenage demands for you to be their personal chauffeur!
2) Crosley Checkerboard Cruiser Bluetooth Vinyl Record Player
Teenagers are at the forefront of all that is hip and trendy, usually deigning something uncool as soon as it meets with their parents’ approval. However, they have recently journeyed back in time and discovered a new-found respect for vinyl with recent years seeing a dramatic rise in record sales. The Crosley turntable, which is both portable with built-in speakers and super-cool, can be purchased from Urban Outfitters.
3) Personalised lap tray
Whether it is using their phone or tablet, eating food or doing their homework, having a portable tray is simply a necessity for today’s multitasking teenager. A cushioned lap tray is the perfect gift for teenagers who would like a touch of comfort while multi-tasking from bed or the sofa! The option to personalise the tray, such as those available from https://personalisedlaptrays.co.uk, should please even the most fastidious teenager.
4) Lumber Bodyclock Starter 30 Wake Up to Daylight Light
A tired teen is a cranky teen, and parents around the world are united in their struggle to wake their teenagers up in the morning. The Lumie clock will help by providing a more calming wake up than a hammering alarm sound. It uses a 30 minute ‘sunrise’ light that brightens slowly, helping to improve not only sleep/wake cycles, but also the user’s mood. An absolute must for teenagers!
5) Dropmix game
Younger children love playing boardgames, but enthusiasm seems to wain as they get older. The Dropmix, an electronic board and cards with elements of contemporary songs, will restore this lost love through the magic of music. A chance for your teenager to show off their music knowledge!
