Holiday Gift Guide for Teenagers

I think we can all agree that teenagers are probably one of the hardest age groups to buy for, but today I hope to provide a few fun gift ideas for every teen on your list no matter what they like and dislike!


1 – Hammock Chair

This hammock chair can be hung indoors or outdoors, and it would just be the coolest thing to have in a bedroom.  I know when I was a teenager, I spent loads of time decorating and redecorating my bedroom to give it the vibe that I wanted it to have, and I would have loved having one of these in there.


2 – Weighted Blanket

Weighted blankets have so many benefits – they can improve sleep quality, alleviate anxiety, calm the nervous system, and ease stress – and I can’t think of another demographic who needs these benefits more than teenagers.  This weighted blanket comes in two different colors and a variety of different weights, so you can find the perfect combination for your teen, and it’s made from super soft Sherpa for ultimate comfort.


3 – Magic 8 Ball PopSocket

Y’all, how cool is this PopSocket?!  PopSockets are already awesome to have because they help you get a better grip on your phone, they aid in taking selfies, and you can use them as a stand to prop up your phone.  But this one takes the cake because it has a built-in Magic 8 Ball in it… and it actually works.  How fun would this be for a teenager?


4 – Jellyfish Lava Lamp

This lava lamp is a twist on traditional lava lamps because the lava inside looks like jellyfish!!  There are seven different color settings, the reviews on Amazon are awesome, and this would be a really cool gift for any teen on your list.


5 – Photo Clip String Lights

This 17-foot long strand of string lights comes with 50 photo clips, so your teen can create a beautiful, personalized collage on their bedroom wall.  The lights have eight different modes – waves, twinkle, steady on, chasing, etc. – and they come complete with a remote control. 


6 – Jewelry Armoire/Mirror

This jewelry armoire has ample storage for jewelry, makeup, and other items, and it doubles as a full-length mirror complete with 18 LED lights.  The inside contains three lined shelves to hold earrings, seven hooks for necklaces and bracelets, a makeup mirror, four rows of ring slots, 16 lipstick slots, and four storage shelves to hold anything else. 


7 – Yeti Tumbler

We love Yeti tumblers in this house, and all four of us have one.  They hold a lot, they keep drinks cold (or hot) for hours, and they truly make a great gift for anyone and everyone.  They come in lots of different colors so you can find the perfect one for your loved one.


8 – Yardzee

Yardzee is an oversized version of Yahtzee that you can play with a big group outside in the yard.  I think this is a fun gift for people of all ages!


9 – Slammo

Another outdoor game, Slammo gets your kids up and moving… a fun way to get them off of their phones, video games, and other electronics.


10 – Amazon Gift Card

Let’s be honest, there are probably plenty of teenagers out there who don’t want “stuff” for Christmas… they just want cash or gift cards so they can spend it on whatever they want!  Amazon has a massive selection of gift cards for all holidays and occasions, and they don’t charge extra for the cute packaging. 


11 – Three-in-One Charging Station

This charging station charges a cell phone, Airpods, and a smart watch all in one space-saving spot.  This would be the perfect addition to any teen’s nightstand.    


12 – Custom Neon Sign

This Amazon listing offers loads of different sizes, colors, and fonts that allows you to customize your very own neon sign, and you can choose your own sentiment for ultimate personalization. 


13 – Flippy Tablet Holder

This multifunctional stand holds your tablet, book, or e-reader so you can be hands-free while you read, browse, or stream.  It has three sides, and each one provides a different viewing angle so you can use it while you’re laying down, sitting, or standing.  It’s made from lightweight foam, so it’s comfortable in your lap, and it comes in tons of colors and patterns.


14 – Home Alone Lego Set

DID Y’ALL SEE THIS?!?!  Lego just released a Home Alone Lego set, and it is EPIC.  Diehards like us will absolutely go crazy over this 3,955-piece set because it has so many fun features.  The front of the house opens and you can see all of the different famous scenes inside – the kitchen with Kevin’s Little Nero’s Pizza and the doggie door that Marv sticks his face in, the bathroom where Kevin puts on aftershave for the first time, the staircase that Kevin sleds down, the attic where Kevin sleeps the night his family disappears, the Michael Jordan cardboard cutout that goes round and round on the train when Kevin is trying to dupe the robbers, and so much more.  It comes with Kevin, Harry, Marv, Kevin’s mom, and Old Man Marley minifigures, and it includes Kevin’s treehouse and Harry and Marv’s van.  There are many interactive parts and, y’all, the details on this set are incredible.  It sold out immediately after its release, but you can still snag one on Amazon for now… they are selling for more than retail price right now, though.  I’m sure Lego will be releasing more eventually, but who knows if they’ll be available before Christmas.  This would make a great gift for anyone who loves Home Alone.    


15 – LED Strip Lights

These LED strip lights can be added to any room to add instant festiveness.  They can be cut so you can customize them to any length that you need, and they have adhesive that can be used on any flat, dry surface.  There are more than 20 color options and 8 light patterns so they can be changed up for any mood, and they can be controlled with a wireless remote. 


And that wraps up my holiday gift guides for 2021!!  I hope that you found these to be helpful, and I hope you were able to find some goodies for your loved ones on the lists.
