Gift Guide: The Best Gifts for Teens and Tweens

by | Nov 20, 2019 | Christmas Inspiration, Style | 1 comment

This is always my favorite gift guide to put together! Presenting the Best Gifts for Teens and Tweens whether they are a glamour gal or tech lovin’ guy.  While I do miss the days of American girl dolls and classic board games, I do love finding special gifts for my girls now that they are older.

This gift guide is filled with fun finds gifts for girls and guys ages 11 to early 20s. Now that my oldest daughter is in college, I have made sure to include items and gadgets that are a good fit for them as well.

One of my favorite finds this year is this Bluetooth Knit hat. I love the feminine version and the masculine version.  They are great for walks across a chilly college campus, football games or even travel and under $30!

As a family we love to travel so a great carry-on is the perfect gift for any age. These Paravel carry-ons are the newest design from what I believe will be a classic travel company. They are available in 6 colors.  It’s never too early to teach your children how to pack for a week in a carry-on.  We travel this way almost every trip now!  I actually have this suitcase on the gift guide For Her, For Him and Travel I think it is just that good.

Two years ago, I gave the girls these Fat Boy bean bags that are in our teen cabana. They love them so much I wish we had doubles for their rooms. In fact, I one of them has taken hers back up to her room and loves to read in it!  They come in so many colors!  These inflatable “bean bags” are great at home and portable (I’m thinking great beach chair for my oldest!). They are under $100.  A great alternative to the Eno hammock which is another great gift and has been very popular gift from this gift guide each year.  All ages love this $70 gift.

Everyone loves a cozy fleece and the Patagonia Retool is a true classic. I love that it comes in so many colors for guys and gals. This new brilliant blue is gorgeous!

Personalized gifts are also a great idea for teens and tweens. I shared a detailed post on the personalized gift guide on Monday but have included lots of fun options here as well.  A laptop case is a great gift and these can be personalized with literally 1000s of design combinations.

For your glam girl a set of personalized barrettes or even two of these hot headbands are a great gift.  These wrap bracelets are also a great gift and a lot of bang for the money. For the tech loving guy, don’t miss the New AirPods with noise cancelling and the drone.

A full listing of all of my favorite picks for teens and tweens are below. I’ve made notes on each item so that you know why it’s special enough to be included in this edit. Don’t see quite what you’re looking for? Be sure to leave me a comment below or send me an email and I’m happy to find just what you’re looking for.
