Gifts for Teens
Let’s face it, shopping for gifts for toddlers and little kids can be a piece of cake. After they turn a certain age, however, things can quickly get tricky and incredibly difficult. Finding the perfect present for a teen, be it a boy or a girl, can be a daunting experience, especially if you want to avoid buying expensive items like gaming equipment and smartphones. Fortunately for you, there is a way to spend less than $50 on an awesome gift for your kids, nieces, nephews, and virtually any teen out there. Check out these five gift ideas!
1. Friends Collage 1,000 Piece Puzzle
Available for just $20 from Urban Outfitters, this 1,000 piece puzzle will have any Friends fan screaming with surprise and joy. The 90s sitcom continues to steal teens’ and adults’ hearts, so you can hardly go wrong with this idea. Especially now that most people are spending more time at home. The best part? The parents can partake in putting the puzzle together, making this a fantastic quality time spent with the whole family.
2. Art101 Deluxe Artist Set
If you’re shopping for an artistic teen who always needs more art supplies, search no more. This $39.99 deluxe artist set is available at Target, and it has so many items, it will make your head dizzy! There are different oil pastels, color and sketch pencils, paintbrushes, acrylic paints, and the mandatory eraser, sharpener, and color chart. What makes this a top gift idea is that the set comes in a handy case which helps keep all supplies orderly. Every item has its designated drawer or nook, so it will all stay together, and the boy or girl you give this gift to won’t easily lose a piece.
3. Soft Pretzel Baking Mix With Mustard
If the teen is an aspiring baker, the best you can do is to encourage that aspiration and give them a baking mix.

However, there are plenty of other pretzel baking mixes, so you can easily find one in the supermarket. You can also find baking mix options for cookies, muffins, pancakes, and even bread!

Once a Lego fan, always a Lego fan. The same holds true for Star Wars fans, so if your teen ticks both boxes, this gift is a no-brainer, and you simply must get it for them. It’s $29.99, and you can find it at Lego stores (including online) or other authorized sellers. There are many other Lego sets inspired by Star Wars for virtually any price range, so be sure to check them out if you want to get closer to the $50 mark.
