Gifts and shopping for teenagers
Teenagers can be particularly hard to buy gifts for. For many personal items, books, clothing, music, etc, you need to know their taste and interests, and what they already have. Or you can take and chance and try a gift which might inspire a new interest or direction in life.
A safe alternative can be “grown-up” items that they’ll use as they branch out in life – travel accessories and luggage for an aspiring traveller, a really good set of headphones for music lovers.
