Welcome to this year’s round up of brilliant Christmas gifts for teenage girls and boys. In this year’s Christmas Gift Guide for Teens we’ve got a range to suit all budgets and styles. We love to support independents too, so we have included a sprinkling of magical ideas from small creative businesses.
Maltesers And Smarties Tree
Christmas is all about guilt-free treats and if you’re looking for something special, we think these trees are perfect for teens. Sweet Trees have a delicious range on Notonthehighstreet, including Haribo and Minstrels trees. Yummy! £25.99
iWALK Mini Portable Charger
We all know how much teens use their phones but it’s really important that they don’t run out of charge when they’re out and about, so that they can always call home if they need to. This power bank is small but mighty and cool enough to keep the fussiest teen happy. £23.99 from Amazon.
Our teenage time capsule is always hugely popular at Christmas – our time capsules make an ideal gift, especially if you choose the option that comes with a packet of luxury popcorn inside. They’ll spend happy hours choosing memorabilia from the past year to fill it with and then they can put it away to open in the future, when they’ll be so glad they stored their teen memories to share. Great as a stocking filler too. From £12.00
- Herd Mentality Board Game
A new game to play at Christmas is a must for many families and this is one that teens will love. Herd Mentality is super fun and easy game to play. Beginning with a random question, everyone secretly writes down an answer and if your answer is in the majority, you win cows. If your answer is the odd one out, you’ll land the Pink Cow and your herd will be worthless — unless you can pass it on. Widely available, including at £22.50 from Oliver Bonas.
Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera
The popularity of instant print cameras is growing and we can see exactly why. This compact model is pretty good value, is super stylish and comes in a range of colours. It has some great features, including customisable shutter buttons, a built-in selfie lens and automatic exposure. Widely available, including at £69.00 from John Lewis.
Donut Stack Poster
A happy print or poster to cheer up their teen bedroom is always a winner and we absolutely love this one from Redbubble. Prices start at £10.02, and vary according to size.
Quick Hit Hitting Net
If you’re looking for a gift for a sports fan or one that will encourage them to get outside, this hitting net is perfect for practising cricket or golf shots. Not cheap, but sturdy and high quality so will last for years. £72.99 with free delivery from LittleBig Sports.
We are all about happy at Equipp so we really love this stylishly understated notebook from Nettlefold. It’s a hard backed blank notebook with 72 lined pages of recycled paper, covered with kraft brown paper. Perfect for teen eco-warriers to use to make their plans to save the world! £12.00
‘This Is My Year’ Teenage Journal
If they prefer to have guidance about what to write, our ‘This Is My Year’ journal includes pages for general notes and records of events, pages to fill in details of what they’re watching, listening to and thinking about, and two pages each month to stick in favourite photos. It’s undated to be totally flexible – there are 12 months that can be started at any time. Perfect inspiration to start a new year in style. £18.00
Modern Metallics Brush Lettering Kit
Christmas is a great time to encourage teens to get creative. We’ve picked out a couple of kits we think will do just this and the first one is this awesome brush lettering kit from Jen Roffe. It contains everything they need to create their own beautiful hand-lettered art and cards, including templates to follow if they need them. £34.00
Tie Dye Kit
The second kit is a throwback tie dye kit from Notonthehighstreet. Just right to get gloriously messy and create a totally unique piece of fashion and stand out from the crowd. Affordable too, at £11.99.
We love indie brand Artbyemelda, and the T-shirt featuring the “Her” line drawing is just one of the gorgeous creations on offer. Available in black or white from The Indie Collective. £25.00
We think every teen we know would love a sign featuring their name or favourite happy word. We’ve found one on Etsy that starts from £22.96 (price varies according to size) and gets brilliant reviews.
- Teenage Gift Sets
Finally, we developed our new range of Equipp gift sets for teens with Christmas in mind. There’s a wellbeing set, one for girls and one for boys, and a digital detox set to help keep teens happy offline. Prices range from £25-35.00. Find them in our Happy Stuff collection ?
We hope our Christmas Gift Guide for Teens 2021 has provided you with plenty of inspiration. If you’ve got a brilliant gift idea for teenagers, please do leave a comment below.
