How to buy a Christmas gift for a teen?
To buy a Christmas gift for a teen can be difficult especially if you are not a teen yourself and with Christmas round the corner things tend to get a little stressful. Teenagers are quite likely to think your gift quite shoddy and not quite what they wanted, no matter what you gave them but don't let that get you down because deep down they really value the gift. But then it is also nice to give something that makes the teen whoop with joy. Here are some tips to keep in mind when buying a gift for a teenager.
- First thing to do before buying the gift is to find out what the young person is really interested in. Is it books, sports, music or something else altogether. If you know the likes and interests your quest becomes easier.
- One way to find out is to ask the teen herself/ himself what she/ he would like to get. Not only will it save time it will also gain you the knowledge first hand and make things uncomplicated.
- If you do not want to ask right out then you could ask what their interests and their hobbies are, the kind of sports that they are interested in and the type of books that they read. This would give you a fair idea of what the teen would appreciate as a gift.
- If you have narrowed the interest down to music then nothing works better than getting them a gift certificate for any record store that you know they frequent. This is to ensure that you don't buy the teen some CDs that he/ she will treat like yesterday's news.
If you really cannot think of anything worth giving you could consider giving money and even though teens are known for not saving, some teens are quite adept at handling money.
Always include the receipt in case the teen needs to return the gift.
Don't buy clothes; they will never go down well with teenagers who are very clear and specific about the kind of clothes that they want to wear.
