The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Teens: 21 Awesome Ideas

1. Games

Games are a must for kids of all ages. This Hookey Wall Game and Basketball Beanbag Game are cool games for their room or in the basement where teens can hang together.

Some other go-to games for teens are Spikeball and Cards Against Humanity. These games are fun for teens and also fun for the family and make excellent gifts for teens.

2. Apple Watch

So many teens have an Apple Watch these days! I can't imagine High School with an Apple Watch. Haha. Game changer. This is an excellent gift idea if you know they've been wanting one.

4. Lock Puzzle

If you know a teen who needs or wants cash for any reason, this Lock Puzzle Gift is super fun! They have to figure out the code (you can give hints) to open the puzzle. They get the cash gift once they've unlocked the code! This Lock Puzzle reminds me of Escape Rooms, which teenagers love!

5. Devotionals

In the hustle of a teenagers life, these 5 minute devotionals are awesome! They can read these in the morning before they've started the day and take on life with a great perspective.
