100 Gift Ideas for Teens

From Fast Food Tech Accessories to Custom Emoji Charm Bracelets

— December 2, 2015 — Pop Culture
These gifts ideas for teens are sure to spark some holiday shopping inspiration. Teens can be difficult to shop for because they have largely outgrown toys, but don't yet have homes of their own. These quirky gift ideas are perfect for the tricky teen on your list.

One common characteristic of modern day teenagers is the obsession with new technology. Indeed, it is rare to find a teen these days who doesn't have a smartphone in their hands at all times. For the tech-obsessed teen in your life, why not purchase a set of tangle-free headphones, a sketchable cell protector or even a fruit-shaped smartphone charger.

If you're looking for a more unique gift for the teenager in your life, you might want to consider a gift inspired by popular culture. These kinds of gifts will not only appeal to teenagers, but they will also demonstrate how up to date you are on current pop culture references. Some media-inspired gift ideas for teens include famous feline duvets, pop sensation phone cases and idolized celebrity candles.
