23 Christmas gifts for teenagers that they’ll actually enjoy

23 Christmas gifts for teenagers that they’ll actually enjoy

You’ve made your list and you’ve checked it twice… now to decide what to buy. Fret not, we’ve pulled together some of the best Christmas gift ideas for teenagers to save you all the hassle.

Teenagers can be very (very) hard to buy for. Not children anymore, but not quite adults yet, their interests are often varied and unexpected… and with TikTok changing what’s popular every other day, it can be difficult to keep up. Which is why we consulted with our own Lizzie Gore-Grimes, mum of teenagers, to compile this list. 

So, what does she recommend? From home gym equipment (teenage boys are particularly obsessed with weights as per her expert intel), to teen boxing classes, make-up tutorials, and products to help with tricky adolescent skin problems, below are some of Lizzie’s top suggestions. 

Other additions to the list include cool graphic t-shirts (hand-printed in Dublin on organic cotton and made using eco-friendly inks), custom-embroidered totes, gym bags and dainty initial jewellery from Dylan Oaks. For book lovers, you can’t go wrong with anything by Irish author Caroline O’Donoghue – the woman behind the New York Times bestseller All Our Hidden Gifts. Celebrity-adorned candles make for great stocking fillers, while a pair of AirPods are sure to win you major brownie points.  

So, save yourself the ‘what to buy dread’ and bookmark this list for when you need inspiration (you’re welcome). Scroll down to shop our full selection of the best Christmas gifts for teenagers that they’ll actually enjoy.
