Holiday Gift Guide for Teenagers

*This post contains affiliate links.  As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

We don’t currently have teenagers in the house, so this gift guide isn’t exactly in my wheelhouse, but I’m hoping that you’ll find this gift guide helpful anyway!


1 – Stanley Tumbler

I feel like everyone in the United States of America has one of these crazy popular Stanley tumblers.  They have been really hard to find for the last year, so get them while the getting is good!


2 – Mini Refrigerator

What teenager wouldn’t want a mini fridge in their bedroom?!  I always thought that would be the coolest thing!  This fridge holds 4 liters, or 6 cans, and it’s large enough to hold skincare items for the beauty lover.  You can also toggle back-and-forth between cooling and heating, and the front of the fridge doubles as a light-up vanity mirror. 


3 – Pillow Slippers

These Pillow Slippers have been making the rounds on social media, and they are uber trendy right now.  This particular set has 4.4 / 5 stars with over 24,000 reviews, so you can’t go wrong.  They also come in a variety of colors.


4 – Apple AirTag

These AppleAir Tags can help anyone keep track of and find their items.  Place the AirTag on whichever item you’d like to keep track of, use the one-tap setup, and it instantly connects the AirTag to your iPhone or iPad.  These are also highly rated with 4.7 / 5 stars and over 86,000 reviews.  These would be awesome for anyone on your list, not just teens!


5 – Unstable Unicorns Game

This strategic card game is fun for adults and teens alike, and I’ve heard such great things about it!  It won the 2019 People’s Choice Award for Toy of the Year, and it’s highly rated with 4.7 / 5 stars and almost 23,000 reviews. 


6 – Amazon Gift Cards

Because every teen really just wants cash or a gift card so they can buy whatever they want, whenever they want.  ;o)


7 – Squishmallows

Thanks to TikTok, Squishmallows aren’t just trending with little kids, they’re also extremely popular with teens and even college students.  They come in tons of different objects/themes/colors/etc. so there is definitely something for everyone.


8 – Hidden Pocket Scrunchies

These viral TikTok Scrunchies double as storage!!!!  Slide your keys, money, lip balms, and other small items in the zipper pocket, pull it on your wrist or around your ponytail, and you’ll never even have to carry a purse!


9 – Spikeball

This fun outdoor game will get your kiddos up and moving.  Such a fun way to get them off of their phones, video games, and other electronics.


10 – Life Skills for Teens Book

This Life Skills for Teens book teaches teens basic skills that they’ll need to know as an adult – how to cook, how to clean, how to manage money, how to fix their car, how to perform first aid, and so many other random little things like how to tell if chicken has gone bad in the fridge.  This is a gift that’ll keep on giving!


11 – Clip Lights

These strands of twinkle lights contain clips so your teen can hang pictures or notes or other random things that they love, while also enjoying the glow of the twinkle lights. 


12 – Plush Hoodie

This hoodie is not only stylish, it’s also snuggly and soft and warm and wonderful.  It comes in tons different colors and it’s highly rated.


13 – Nintendo Switch

Play it at home or take it on the go!  This Nintendo gaming system is perfect for the Gamer, and it’s the gaming system of choice in our household.  Our kiddos love their Nintendo Switch time!  And there are tons of different games you can buy for all ages!


14 – 3-in-1 Apple Charging Station

This charging station charges your teen’s iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all in one place.  This is the perfect gift for the teens who have all the gadgets!


And that wraps up my holiday gift guides for 2022, y’all!!  I hope you found them helpful!
