Your Inspired Guide to Stellar Gifts for 14-Year-Olds
They're not kids anymore, but not adults either. It may seem tough to find a gift for a 14-year-old in your life, but actually their interests are versatile and there are a lot of ways to have fun hunting for a perfect present. Try these options:
Start with an Interview
Sure, talking to a teenager can mean a lot of "yeah" and "no" answers. But, if you ask them about what they're into these days, you're a lot more likely to get them a gift that they never forget?in a good way!
They're old enough to own something valuable and distinct, so don't be afraid to gift a 14-year-old their first significant piece of jewelry or a serious watch.
Take a risk
Teenagers are known for their sense of adventure, so be brave with your gift-giving! A quirky-cool present like a funky pair of socks or a novelty wallet will stand out among the standard fare.
Every 14-year-old can use accessories for their phones or tablets, so that's a sure thing, as are speakers and new ways to listen to music.
At this age, people are starting to treasure life's big moments. Help the preserve a memory with an engraved frame or a keepsake - like a holiday ornament or mug - with a special phrase, a meaningful photo or a significant date printed on it.
A sense of their own space is very important to teenagers, so anything that personalizes their room - from a silly pillow to a framed print they'll adore - helps define their world.
Gifts for 14-year-olds don't have to be serious - a new game or a sophisticated toy (a robot, perhaps) will tap into their still-active imaginations.
Buy it last-minute
Don't worry if you've waited until the eleventh hour to buy a gift. Someone this age will love a teen magazine subscription or a delivery club that appeals to their interests (monthly pizza, anyone?).
