Gifts for Teens

Keeping up with the latest high school trends seems to be more challenging as the years go on, making gift buying for the teens in your life somewhat difficult. To help, we highlighted four trends that we’re confident won’t be going out of style any time soon.

Cell Phone Accessories

It seems that the only reason you’ll see a teen without their cell phone glued to their hand is because their battery has died and, if you’re a teen, that’s an epic issue. One solution to this problem is the Wristlet Portable Battery Charger; it’s a fashionable way to ensure you never run out of battery power and a good way to keep your phone safe. Another option is a Mophie Juice Pack Charging Cell Phone Case; it can hold up to 33 hours of battery life with its built-in rechargeable battery, has a super-slim profile and comes in a variety of trendy colours. If you really want to impress your teen, consider a LuMee Illuminating Case – the trendiest case out there — providing professional LED lighting that gives off a soft light for the best selfies ever.


Another trend that isn’t changing anytime soon is the love of music. For your teen’s personal listening, check out Urbanears Plattan ADV Wireless Headphones. These headphones are wireless and Bluetooth-ready with up to 14 hours of play time on a single charge. If earbuds are your teen’s preference, Urbanears has the Sumpan Earbuds, which come in a variety of trendy colours. If a speaker is on their wish list, the brand new Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth Speaker is definitely a must-have this holiday. This little speaker gives big sound and its compact size makes transporting it around so much easier. Take it one step further for the emoji lovers in your life with a Jamoji Bluetooth Speaker. Combine their love for emojis and music with these adorable speakers that are shaped like their favourite emoji. You could always go a little retro by gifting a Bluetooth Record Player that allows them to play their favourite vintage records and newest tunes from their phone, all in the same device.


One thing that will never go out of style is photography. Taking, printing and displaying pictures is something that is still important to teens. However, with the introduction of cameras in our phones, it’s not as common for everyone to have a digital camera anymore. The HP Sprocket and HP Sprocket 2-in-1 are devices that wirelessly print 2" x 3" adhesive snapshots taken either on the device or on a phone. Once these cute mini photos have been printed, they’ll need somewhere to display them. Check out the Umbra Crowd Photo Display that they can put just about anywhere in their room.

Star Wars

The force never goes out of style, and the Star Wars Battle Drone Collection combines two of the coolest trends of the holiday season – drones and Star Wars. You can choose from the X Wing Drone, Speeder Bike Battling Quadcopter Drone or the Tie Fighter Battling Quadcopter Drone for the Star Wars fan in your life. All three of these exceptional gifts have advanced speed and agility to serve your teen well during aerial battles with their friends.
