Two teenage gifts getting Christmas gifts

The 50 Top-Rated Gift Ideas for Teens Who Love Tech, Gaming, Beauty, Music, and More

If you have a teenager (or a few) on your holiday shopping list this year, you probably feel like you have your work cut out for you. Teens are notoriously challenging – and changing hormones mean that they’re also at least occasionally moody – and particular. They’ll only wear clothing with certain brand labels, and while they’re no longer into kids’ stuff, they’re not exactly into that stuffy, boring adult stuff, either.

So what can you buy for a teenager? The good news is there are many options; the bad news is that choosing the right gift requires you to have a firm understanding of your teen’s personality. Easier said than done for a teen whose moods seem to change with the weather, right?

To help make your gift-giving adventure a bit less excruciating, we’ve rounded up 50 top-rated gifts that most teens are sure to love. Whether you’re selecting a gift for the tech-loving teen (wait, isn’t that all of them?), the social teen who loves her music, a teenage girl who is into beauty, or a teen who loves to be active, there’s a gift idea on this list that’s sure to please.
