How to Find the Best Gifts for 17-Year-Olds
At 17, you're almost grown up?but not quite. That means that a whole range of gifts appeal to teenagers at this stage - from the playful things reminiscent of childhood to the more sophisticated, mature options. Here are some suggestions for striking the right note with your 17-year-old

1
Gift an Experience
She's old enough to try skydiving or head out on a day cruise with friends, so why not bestow some love with a brand new adventure she'll remember forever?

2
Surprise Him
Seventeen is an age when young people think they know everything, so surprises are extra delightful. Whether it's an unexpectedly funny message tee or a quirky subscription to an of-the-month club, unique and unusual presents resonate with 17-year-olds.

3
Get Grooming
Shower accessories, at-home spa kits, and artisanal soaps will always be appreciated by a 17-year-old who's experimenting with her beauty and grooming routine.

4
Honor a Memory
Find a special frame that's engraved with a phrase or a date or choose a unique diary or scrapbook where he can record important moments. You might even spring for a quality camera so he can capture the many milestones still to come in his life.

5
Celebrate a Hobby
Consider her interests and present them with something that will enhance their favorite pastimes, like a new e-reader for the teen who reads books voraciously or audio accessories for a music maven.

6
Game Them
From ping-pong to foosball to old-school video game consoles, 17 is an age when people love to play in groups. Play up this aspect of their personalities.

7
Get Practical
Accessories for a teen's car - like a key organizer or safety kits or multi-tools - are always good for the entire family's peace of mind.

8
Feed Them
When you're 17, a giant snack basket is incredibly appreciated - and disappears quickly, especially during an evening with friends.
