Gifts For Teens This Christmas

As a parent to a 16-year-old daughter I know how tricky it can be buying for teenagers, our family really struggle buying gifts for her and I often end up taking her shopping with me to buy some of her own gifts. If you are struggling on what to buy a teen this Christmas then I have created this Christmas gift guide with some ideas of gifts that teens are sure to enjoy.

1.) Swizzels Sweet Hamper 

You can't go wrong with sweets and this great sweet hamper from Swizzels would make a great gift idea. You can add a personalised gift tag and it comes in a lovely little wicker hamper that can be reused once all the sweets have been eaten. Full of favourites such as drumsticks, love hearts, refreshers, rainbow drops, double dips and lollies it is full to the brim with old-school classic sweets that they are sure to enjoy. Prices start at just £14.99 and you can buy them from

2.) Monopoly Cheaters Edition 

Monopoly Cheaters Edition Board Game

You can't beat a family games night over the festive period and what better game to play than Monopoly. New for 2018 is Cheaters Edition of this much loved classic game, perfect for teens like my own who have been cheating at Monopoly for years. Monopoly cheaters edition is available to buy now from all good game suppliers priced at £17.99.

3.) Lego 
Box of Lego Voltron

When my teen was younger she adored Lego and had so many of the Lego Friends sets, she would spend hours building the sets. So this Lego Voltron set would be perfect for teenagers who enjoy Lego as it is for ages 16+ and will keep them entertained for hours while they build it, as it is a large lego set with 2,300 pieces in. It would be great to display once built too. You can buy Lego Voltron from the Lego Store, Amazon and leading Lego retailers priced at £159.99. 

4.) Hat

Woollen hats are still really popular at the moment and are perfect for this cold winter weather. I really like this purple knitted, pom pom hat from Buff and so does my teenage daughter. It will keep her warm and it is stylish and it makes a nice change from the usual gifts she receives at Christmas time. You can buy similar hats online at Buff and this one is priced at £30.

5.) Chocolate Pizza

I love the look of these chocolate pizzas from Find Me A Gift, it is a 7-inch Belgian Chocolate pizza that would make a lovely sweet treat. Topped with fudge, brownie pieces and white chocolate shavings it is perfect for munching on over the festive period. My own teen loves chocolate, pizza and novelty gifts so she is sure to like this.
