6 Holiday Gift Ideas for Your Teenage Grandkids

Posted by David Cheatham, December 12, 2017

The holiday season can be stressful for all of us, and shopping is usually a primary source of distress. Not only are stores crowded and lines long; it can be difficult to even know what you should purchase!

In particular, teenagers can present a challenge. The following items are popular with many kids this year, and can help you narrow your options before you head out to the mall.

Video gaming accessories. If you aren’t familiar with your grandchild’s favorite gaming system, or don’t know which games they already own, trying to purchase video game equipment could quickly overwhelm you. But most gamers would appreciate a comfy gaming chair in their favorite color. Some even have built-in cupholders or speakers.

Wireless headphones or earbuds. These allow your young music (or audio book) lover to listen free of tangling, annoying wires. Most brands are compatible with most smartphones, making it relatively easy to shop for these devices. Just check a few online reviews to identify the brands with the best sound quality.

Portable music player. If your grandkid’s parents aren’t ready for their teenager to carry a cell phone, they can still enjoy music and audiobooks from a device such as an MP3 player.

A camera. Yes, many young people these days enjoy the camera function on their smartphones. But believe it or not, the old-fashioned film camera has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity among hip young people. If your grandchild is the trendy, statement-making type, he or she might get a kick out of a camera.

An experience. Research has demonstrated that experiences, not things, are what really make us happy. Consider gifting your grandchild concert tickets, a theme park annual pass, art or dance classes, or supplies to start a new hobby. Check with the parents to get ideas.

Gift cards. To you, this might seem like the easy way to send a gift. But, we promise no teenager will be offended by the simplicity! Gift cards to popular retailers – or just a general Visa gift card that can be used anywhere – allow teens the freedom to choose the perfect gift for themselves.
