30 Cool Presents For Teens

Team teen too grown up for toys? Too cool for parents’ taste in clothes? These are the presents that will hit the sweet spot for hard-to-please not so little kids.

A notoriously hard crowd to please, teenagers can seem to fall between stalls when it comes to gifting. Too old for cutesy presents and too cool to do anything but scoff at parents’ efforts at being with-it, we mostly just hope they’ll tell us what they want. But for those with more reticent kids to buy for, there is hope, chiefly in the form of these excellent gift ideas for teens.
