Teens Need To Keep Track Of Time

Well, usually they need to have someone wake them up so that they can get to school or their weekend job if they have one. Give Mom a break from having to get them up by giving them their own alarm clock. It does not have to be a lame or regular alarm clock, it can be something really cool like this math-league clock.

Under $25 

This popular Nerf blaster gun is a six barrel shooter. The barrel rotates automatically and it can be reloaded easily. Pullback mechanism for added run and realism. Even though this is a “toy” I don’t know of many adult males that wouldn’t love to play with one. A great cheap gift idea.

What Do Teens Want For Gifts?

Perhaps the teen that you are wanting to buy a gift for is not your child or does not live in your home. He may be the kid who delivers your newspaper, mows your lawn or babysits your small children. They might be the neighbor kid who comes by and shovels your snow from your driveway. They are a teen that has impressed you enough to want to give them a gift but you are at a loss as to what is a good idea for a gift.

If you choose something that has to do with popular movies or television shows, you will most assuredly have a winner on your hands. Pay attention to what you see the teen get excited about.

Giving them a novelty gift that just is fun and kind of funky is also a good idea. Think back to when you were a teen…things are not as different as they were then.

Under $50
