Ho Ho Ho: Christmas Gifts For Cool Kids

Happy faces are guaranteed around the tree with our gift edit for older kids and teens.

Christmas is all about the children. Tiny ones are, of course, easy to thrill with shiny baubles and empty boxes. But for the older children discernment creeps in ever more with every passing year. To that end, do arm yourself with our indispensable guide for the most covetable presents for kids, from six right through to the hard-to-navigate teenage years. You can thank us later.
