8 Christmas gift idea for teenagers

Teenagers are very hard to buy for! I have a 16 year old nephew and a 14 year old neice. I don't want to break the bank.

Here are eight Christmas gift ideas that even hard to please teens will love

Buy a MP3 player or Ipod . These are coming down on prices all the time. Therefore, you surely can find one that fits your budget. Doesn't worry about the fact that the teen may all ready have a deluxe model. There may be times and places where the teen may fear to take his/her best model (fear of losing or fear of it being stolen). Times like these would be perfect for the teen to have a backup player.

Cell phone accessories are something teens usually love. They not only love the phone, they love the ring tones, the cases, the blue tooth and all the other accessories to match. If you are not sure of the brand or model of the phone, this would be a great time to buy a gift certificate to their local cell phone dealer.

DVDs.Teens like to watch and rent these. If you don't want to buy a selection of DVD's for fear that the teen will soon get bored of them, you could get the teen a gift card to your local DVD rental store. Then the teen can pick out his or her favorites.

Health and Beauty products are great gifts for teens and can even be bought for male teens. For the girls, you have your choice of makeup, jewelry, holistic items as well as perfumes and bath products. For male teens, you can buy after shave products, colognes and some bath products.

Will the teen soon be heading off to college? If the answer is yes, you could begin buying items that the teen will need. Some great and cool gifts for college are: Bean bag chairs (always a classic item), clocks, lamps, comforters for the bed, etc.

Do you know if the teen is into video games (most teens are)? Find out just what platform they like best and if they are looking for any certain game. Better yet, again turn to the gift certificate idea and this time get one to the local video game dealer or online dealer.

Puzzle books could be an interesting present to buy a teen. If the teen actually would play them, they could help sharpen their minds. The newly popular brain puzzle Sudoku could be a big pleaser.

Finally, you could try to help the teen remember this fun and sometimes trying days of their life by giving them a journal. You can buy an economical one or nice leather bound one. If you have a flair for words yourself, write a nice inspiration inside the front cover for the teen and sign and date it.

Deciding what to buy a teen for Christmas can be a hard and somewhat daunting task. But it isn't impossible. Just think about the teen in question and soon you will have an idea or two that even the fussiest teen should love.
