Teenagers can be some of the hardest people to buy presents for. When their birthdays come around, many people struggle to find gifts which will be suitable for their age and also be something which they will enjoy. Children often change their preferences on a regular basis, which means that they might have liked cars last year, but now they much prefer airplanes. If you’re struggling to buy a gift for a teenager, there are certain things that you can’t ever really go wrong with.

You can’t really go wrong with gift vouchers and gift cards, no matter who you’re buying presents for. There are gift cards such as Visa gift cards which will allow the recipient to spend the money on whatever they would like to buy. If you know that the teenager likes a particular shop, such as H&M or River Island, you can choose to buy a gift card which is specific to that store. With gift vouchers, it shows that you’ve thought about it more than just giving them money, but at the same time, it allows the recipient to buy whatever they like, rather than you giving them something which may go unused for a very long time.

Most teenagers like anything electronic, so if they already have devices, they are many things that you can buy. You can buy iTunes vouchers if you know that they have an Apple device, or give them something which will be useful for their device, such as an iPhone 5 dock extender. Cases for their tablet or smartphone will always be useful, since after a few months and a lot of use, cases need to be changed anyway. If they don’t have a case already, it will be good for them to use a case and therefore protect their devices from any harm. Depending on your budget, there are a huge range of gifts that you can purchase, from tablets and Kindles to smaller things which don’t cost as much.

Depending on the age of the teenager, it might be a good idea to buy a block of driving lessons. If you know that the birthday person is going to be reaching a certain age this year which means they can start learning how to drive, this is the perfect gift. Talk to the parents first to make sure that they haven’t already booked a large block of driving lessons, but in most cases, this present will be greatly appreciated. Driving is something which many teens want to do, but often don’t have the money to do so. By starting them off with a block of five or ten lessons, it’s much easier for them to fund the rest of their driving lessons or ask parents to help them out.
