It’s always challenging for grandparents when their grandkids reach teenhood. After all, they can morph into mini adults who you might not see as often as before. And as for present buying, it can turn into a minefield. After all, it’s challenging to know what’s on-trend nowadays. But there are a few things you can go for which will definitely work for your teens. Therefore, here are some ideas of gifts that your teen grandchildren will love!
It’s hard to go wrong when it comes to food with teenagers. After all, they tend to eat their parents out of house and home when they are in their teens! Although they do have an excuse; they are growing lads and girls. Therefore, if you want to ensure you make the right choice with a gift, you should consider going down the food angle. You could make them a hamper full of all their favorite sweets and chocolates. If they have a sweet tooth, they will absolutely love this present. Or you could even bake them some cookies or muffins. Nothing beats your grandparent’s cooking so they will adore this present! And if your teen is a health nut, you could make healthy snacks for them instead. They will love the fact you are paying an interest in their life and will enjoy the gift.
Teens today are more interested in their appearance than ever before. Therefore, if you want to get the right gift for your teen grandchild, you should go down the grooming route. For girls, any form of body lotions or makeup would definitely be a winner. If you are unsure about which brands they use, go for a voucher they can use to buy some new makeup. And as for boys, you should opt for some shaving sets which are a must have once they have hit puberty! You can find out about the best ones on ManlyMatters, and other similar sites. Otherwise, some cologne would go down well with your teen grandchild. As we said before, they will love that it will help them to stand out!
You will find that your teen is always talking about some singer or band that they love. After all, music is a big part of their lives. Therefore, you should go for something music related for a gift that they will love. For one thing, you could always look to see if their favorite performer is on tour soon. You could put some money towards the ticket so that they can go see them live in concert. Or you might even choose to go for some music vouchers so that they can buy some tunes from Apple store. After all, they won’t use a CD if you buy it from the store. Therefore, it’s best to give them a voucher which they can use to download some new tunes!
And although it’s a tricky one, clothes could be a good present idea. Just make sure you check their size and the stores they like to go in before making a purchase. It might be wise to go for a voucher instead so they can choose what they like to buy from their store!
Life as a grandma.. it's no 'quiet, restful days in the rocking-chair'. It's filled with activity, excitement and lots of family fun. Please share it with me.
