Today is all about the best gifts for teens! My oldest is 12 and a half and she is definitely into the preteen phase where she isn’t into toys as much. All of these ideas are screen free, which I love because it continues to encourage creativity. No matter what your child is into, you can find something that will be a hit – I’m sure of it!
1. Art Supplies

What child doesn’t love art supplies? Pencil Box Supplies has the cutest office and school supplies around. These would be great for stocking stuffers and I guarantee any kid is going to love them!
2. Earrings for All Ages

It’s always fun for anyone who has their ears pierced to get a new set of earrings. Little and Five has fantastic high-quality earrings. All of their earrings are high quality, hand made, and hypoallergenic. There are so many different finishes and designs to choose from that anyone of any age will adore. These earrings are dainty, elegant, and darling.
3. Illustrated Harry Potter Books
These books have the entire text (not simplified) with beautiful illustrations added to keep their interest. The artwork is hand-painted by the illustrator and so well done. We have been collecting these and my kids have put them through the ringer. They currently have 4 that are out and would make a perfect gift as a collection.
4. Jewelry Box
Teens seem to get more into jewelry the older they get. This jewelry box is a stunning option for storing their collection. It has a beautiful glass window on top, gold accents, incredible stitch detailing, and a white vegan leather. It looks even more incredible in person than it does online. With plenty of space for every kind of jewelry, it is the perfect option for a teen who is looking for something beautiful and classic.
5. Adidas Mini Backpack
I don’t know what it is about kids and backpacks but my kids are really into bags, and especially mini backpacks lately. This is great for a boy or a girl to carry around the things they need each day. There are color options for every taste and a couple pockets to keep things separate and easy to find. It would even be great to pack a lunch in!
I never thought I would live to see the day, but crocs are back and in full force. They are easy to slip on and kids wear them all year long.
7. Croc Jibbits
To go with their crocks, this is a large assortment of jibbits that can be used to accessories their new shoes. They have a lot of personality and teens love anything customizable!
8. Water Bottle
If you have been around here for a while, you will know that I am a huge insulated water bottle lover. The Takeya brand won the kids water bottle experiment and the 24oz is the perfect size for teens. It still fits in cup holders and there are a variety of lid options to choose from. One of my favorite features is the huge handle – and of course that it keeps the water incredibly cold and doesn’t leak – it’s just a winner all around!
9. Karaoke Microphone
Teens love music and this totally plays into that. This karaoke microphone connects via bluetooth to play all of your favorite songs. It also features controls with different modes, effects, and voices. It comes in a great case for protection and keeping all of the cords together.
10. Classic Books
I love these books and the idea of teaching my children classic literature, but look at how beautiful these books are! They would be the perfect addition to a teen room.
11. Cross Stitch Tutorials

I love the idea of encouraging creativity in teens. This takes you though how to stitch different people, hairstyles, and outfits. I can totally envision them creating collages of their family and friends.
This game would be so fun on any wall (indoor or outdoor) in a teen area. You throw the hoops onto the hooks and keep score. Easy and simple usually makes the most fun!
13. Mini Lightbox
This is the perfect size for a dresser or a desk. You can use batteries or plug it in to charge. We like having it powered by batteries so there aren’t any cords to get tangled when it’s in use. The messages can be anything their heart desires which is so fun!
