Today’s Picks: Gifts for Teenagers
A boy’s teenage years are all about his journey to manhood, and every “man” needs a good multitool. This Gerber Suspension Multi-Plier is one of the top-rated multitools on Amazon AND it comes with a lifetime warranty! It folds down to make it only about 4″ long and is packed with 15 different handy tools.
Bundle this gift with: This book The Manual to Manhood: How to Cook the Perfect Steak, Change a Tire, Impress a Girl & 97 Other Skills You Need to Survive looks hilarious and actually helpful! You could also throw in some of my favorite gum: Trident Mint Bliss Sugar-Free Gum.
Have your teen throw out their old cardboard, over-the-door basketball hoop and get them this one! The SKLZ Pro Mini XL Basketball Hoop is the real deal. With an extra large, sturdy backboard and a steel, spring-action rim, this thing was made specifically with rambunctious teens in mind!
Bundle this gift with: The hoop comes with a ball, but some reviewers purchased this SKLZ Pro Mini Swish Foam Ball as well hoping to minimize any damage that might come to any nearby lamps or vases. 😉 You could also get your teen tickets to see one of their favorite basketball team’s games!
If you’ve got a budding artist on your hands, you’ll want to check out these Colore Watercolor Pencils. Basically, these are really high quality colored pencils that can be used both dry and wet. The artist can create a beautifully colored drawing and then blend and spread the colors with the included water brush or a damp sponge. Your teen will LOVE getting creative with this unique set!
Bundle this gift with: These Canson Watercolor Paper Pads would make the perfect canvas for their artwork. Also, this Ohuhu Electric Pencil Sharpener is top-rated, battery AND USB powered, and has a full year warranty; pretty good for a pencil sharpener!
This Nail Art 20 Piece Kit is an awesome gift for teens into cosmetology. It comes with basically everything they would need to create amazing-looking nails! This kit has great reviews and comes with a FREE nail art ebook!
Bundle this gift with: This SHANY Nail Art Set includes 24 nail polishes and is top-rated AND affordable. For more nail art ideas, get them this DIY Nail Art Book. One of these cool Tweexy Wearable Nail Polish Holders would be fun, too!
I laughed out loud when I found this pick; the Sonic Bomb Loud Dual Alarm Clock with Bed Shaker! The Sonic Bomb, AKA The Bomb, is perfect for those teens that are known for sleeping in until noon or pushing the snooze button a million times. “At 113db, this dual alarm is sure to rattle your windows and force your eyes open. And if that doesn’t put your feet on the floor, the pulsating alert lights and Super Shaker bed vibrating unit will.” If the sound is a little much for neighboring sleepers, your teen can just switch off the sound and wake to the powerful bed shaker. You’ve got to read some of the reviews on this baby! 🙂
Bundle this gift with: A funny graphic tee is always a safe bet with a teen; here are some of my favorites: Guess What? Chicken Butt Graphic T-Shirt, Blittzen Mens T-shirt Newton’s 1st Law T-Shirt, I’m Not Arguing Just Explaining Why I’m Right T-Shirt.
