Good news, folks. 🙂 Though this gift guide series is coming to a close this week (with the exception of a bonus in December), Christmas is still five full weeks away. If you haven’t given anything holiday-related a second thought, no worries. You have plenty of time!
If you’re shopping for a middle or high schooler this year, I hope this guide gets your wheels turning’! Maybe you’ll be able to cross one more person off your “to shop for” list today! 🙂
Gift Ideas for Preteens and Teens
Manicure Pedicure Kit 12 Piece Set ($15.99), because she likes having her nails painted and would like to learn about how to keep up with them even better.
3-Piece Luggage Set ($119), because this luggage set comes in nine bold colors and would be perfect to gift your teen or preteen before an upcoming trip next year.
HitchSafe ($42.95), because they’ve locked themselves out of the car one too many times, so something secure like this is more than necessary. They’ll thank you more genuinely later on once they inevitably use it!
Lifefactory Glass Water Bottle with Straw Cap and Silicone Sleeve ($13.87), because they could use a better water bottle to carry to practice. These glass bottles are very popular right now!
NFL unisex Embossed Leather Wallet ($16.99+), because your recipient is a huge NFL fan, so a thoughtful gift like this will bring big smiles on Christmas morning.
Top Quality Gel Pen Pack of 60 ($11.99), because if they like the pens they’re taking notes with, maybe they’ll be more likely to take more of them. Maybe. Or at least they’ll have more fun doodling or writing notes (except I’m old and that’s probably not a thing anymore is it?)
642 Things to Draw ($11.11), because this book is a ton of fun and can be worked on during free time at school or at home instead of spending time in front of a screen. Don’t forget a brand new set of these colored pencils to go with it so that they can get right to drawing. 🙂
Ladder Toss Game Set ($28.99), because they love to have their friends over, and this game totally promotes good, clean fun.
Coobie Seamless Bra ($14.95+), because I have one of these Coobie bras and find it mega comfortable and supportive. It’s like a combo sports bra and regular bra, which makes it kind of perfect. Available in a trillion colors and quite affordable!
Sudoku Puzzle Book ($5.93), because he or she loves to problem-solve, and these puzzles are totally addicting once you get going!
Passion Planner ($25+), because a couple sentences isn’t enough to tell you why every teen needs this planner. Not only will it help your teen keep a schedule, but it’ll guide them through a bit of dreaming as well. Where do they see themselves three months, a year, or five years down the road? It’s so incredible. And don’t forget to add some beautiful stickers to make organizing even more fun and attractive! These stickers are designed specifically to go with the Passion Planner and are fantastic! (PS: I’ve met the CEO of Passion Planner as well as this sticker creator, and they are both beyond exceptional people. They truly believe in the mission and purpose of the Passion Planner.)
Adidas Originals Logo Hoodie ($55+), because a good hoodie like this will see years of wear.
Every String Attached Personalized Sports Artwork ($35+), because how priceless would his or her face be to see a unique piece of art like this designed around their individual sport? You’ve got to check out her Etsy shop. Just wow.
Rubik’s Cube ($7.89), because everyone likes a good challenge, and a Rubik’s cube is definitely just that. Would be fun to sit around and play with Christmas night!
Have you missed previous gift guides from the 2017 list below? Good news! You can find links to all of them in one convenient list here.
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
