Gifts For Tweens and Teens

Let's start with low tech, since I'll hit that with the Xbox below…. Bring back the simple pleasures with this sled shaped checkerboard. The checkers themselves are painted with red bears and black moose. Great family gift too. On sale as of this writing online at Plow and Hearth for $54.99.

I LOVE THIS!  Typewriter Laptop Case. Very cool, and new old school…. Designed by Ted Baker, fits up to 13" screen (Approx. 15" wide x 1 ½" deep x 11" high). $49 at Budd + Finn.

And while we're talking Tech, how about these colorful gloves that are whole screen gloves that allow a kid to use their hands (not just the index finger tip)  on their touchscreen devices. One size fits most, so maybe not really little hands… Comes in the colors shown and also a black and gray version. For $28 at MOMA. TIP: As of TODAY, 20% will be applied at checkout!

How about Happy Plugs Ear buds --  come in two styles, and many include tablet covers too. For him or her, they come in many colors, including black, whilte, silver, gold, rose gold and leopard, or camo, as shown. They'll be a lot easier to find under the piles of clothes in their room!  For $29.99.

For Pet Lovers - Whimsical Bedding! You can get sheets and comforters from Plow and Hearth from $24-$159. Choose from Dog Gone Good Time, Kitten Caboodle  or Lab Lovers Flannel sheets, quilting and decorative throw pillows.

How about this knitting kit from We Are Knitters? They can make a cap and a headband/earwarmer. You can choose the wool color.  Comes with: 1 ball of 100% Peruvian wool yarn (200 gr.), 15 mm / UK S/E/ US 1wooden knitting needles, pattern, a small knitter's sewing needle. The price is $64, thought I think you can get it for $49 if you use the code: WAKRS TIP: It is $13 less without the needles. 

Speaking of knit caps, here is the original Beardo hat - great for skiing the slopes or as a conversation starter… This cap with knitted "beard" (get a red, brown or blonde) will definitely bring a few laughs and be worn with pride. You will be very popular for giving this gift. On AMAZON for $34.00. It may be available elsewhere for less - just Google around. Hee hee.

City kids might like this fire escape rack - as art, or to hold anything from plants to make up and accessories, to model cars. 12" wide x 3 ¾" deep x 25 ½" high. Pretty cool for only $12.99. CLICK HERE to order.

How about this uber-lightweight Sole Bicycle, ON SALE as of this date for $299 down from $399. These are limited editions so it may sell out. Here are the stats: • Cruise Single-Speed or Fixed Gear, Whole Bicycle Weighs Only 26LBS!, arrives 90% assembled, 700x25c Tires = Speed + Comfort , Frame Guaranteed for Life, 1 Year Warranty on All Components.

There are other models and color combos like white and orange, black and light blue, etc… How about this one: The Renegade. Same sale price, same link as above. 

The list is endless, but this is a little to get you started. Check out the tabs For Tweens or For Teens to your right on this blog for past posts.
