Gifts for Teens and Tweens: Gift Ideas

Gift ideas and the giving of gifts: A father of teens and tweens makes suggestions for choosing gifts for this age.

As a single father raising teens and tweens, I can offer a few suggestionsas gifts for this age. Remember that teens want to stay in touch with and looklike other teens. And they crave their music and other entertainment.

Cell Phones as Gifts
If they do not already have one, a cell phone is the number one gift desired byteens (well, maybe a car but let’s get real). If they do have one, you stillhave a few options for gifts:

  • There are a few accessories that you might check on such as a leather cover. 
  • You could offer to pay part of their bill–that is a double gift for the teens and their parents.
  • SMS (Short Messaging Service) Messaging (Sending text messages to cell phones). The cost of sending messages depends upon the teens’ cellular service plan covering messaging traffic, others charge a fee, usually around 10 cents, for each outgoing message.

Computers as Gifts
Next to a cell phone, teens stay in touch with computers. The computer itself isa welcome gift but in lieu of that gifts can include:

  • Software
  • Accessories
  • Computer games

Digital Cameras as Gifts
A digital camera is also welcomed by teens who do not have one. And for thosewho do have one, more gadgets and upgrades are excellent gifts.

Music, DVD, and the Like as Gifts
CD Players, DVD Players and the CDs or DVDs to go with them are good teengifts.

The Latest Style as Gifts
If, and only if, you have a teen-ager to help you choose, go after the lateststyle in clothing or accessories.  Keep that receipt, though, anddon’t be surprised if your teen wants to return the gift.
