My sons are 15 and 12 so I have the teen and tweens covered pretty good. For the most part the two of them like a lot of the same things. Unfortunately for me those things are expensive, video games, gaming systems, iPods, iPhones. As your kids grow your wallet shrinks. Since I myself love technology so much I’m a sucker for buying them the newest and greatest gadget. I love shopping at Best Buy and thought I would share some must haves for your tween and/or teen.
This is an easy and often overlooked gift, the iTunes gift card. My boys love to buy a song or game here and there and seek it past me. Having their own iTunes gift card gives them the ability to purchase what they want. I love it when they received this for the holidays and birthdays.
You really can’t go wrong with video games at Best Buy. Video games are always at the top of my tween and teen’s list for all holidays. If you are a concerned parent you can always check the rating on the box before purchasing.
Best Buy isn’t just technology and gadgets (though that is the best part). Something as simple as a football can be a great present. Don’t think teens and tweens are too old. Do you ever visit the beach and see the teenagers playing sand football or even in the water. You are never to young to pass with dad. If you have a great group of neighborhood kids football in the backyard or park is always a great way to pass the time.
Let them capture their own moments with a point and shoot camera from Canon. I’m sure when your tween is at a party, the last day of school, or hanging with their friends they may want to take a phew photos to remember the “good times”. I think tween and teen years is a great year to get your first “real” camera.
