Guide to the Best Gifts for Teenagers 2019

Guide to the Best Gifts for Teenagers in 2019

I live in a home of hormones right now, two teenage girls and two pre-teen boys dwelling here.  I frequently hear about all the latest trends and have received the full “list” of holiday and birthday must-haves.  I don’t label myself as an expert in trends, but I am an expert in knowing what the teenagers are wanting this year.  It’s hard to find the best gifts for teenagers, so I’m here to help!

I’d say this is a great list for tweens, teens, and young adults.  If you have anyone in your life aged 11-21, there is a good chance there is something for them here!  I recruited help from the experts to come up with my Guide to the Best Gifts for Teenagers in 2019.  And by experts, I mean those tweens, teens and young adults.

For a complete list of Best Gift for Teenagers & Tweens, check out my Amazon Store list “Best Gifts for Teenagers 2019” here!

Do you have an additional “best gift for teenagers” idea?  Please leave them in the comments below!






  • Metal straws.  Because save the turtles, y’all.  Duh.
  • Faux fur rugs. It can also be used as a chair cover, on benches, and decorated along the corners of bed ends.
  • Fairy lights.  My daughter loves to string these across her room, around her wall hangings, and over her bed.
  • Hydro Flask.  This is a link for a generic one, and as often as my kids lose their stuff I opt not to invest in the real deal!
  • Bedside Organizers.  This one holds two water bottles and has pockets for tablets, magazines, and cell phones.
  • Letterboards.  And the more letters and emojis the better, if you need extras these are great too!
  • Waterproof laptop and water bottle stickers.  There are a variety of different themed options you can choose from.
  • A giant burrito blanket. Bringing taco Tuesday to a whole new level!
  • Donut Hole Mug.  A mug that also holds your donut.  Genius.
  • PacMan Glow Light. Great for the tweens!



  • Cordless earbuds.  Or, generic iPod earbuds if you will!  These cordless, rechargeable earbuds will do the same job as their $200 Apple competitor, and have the same look!
  • Portable Record Player/Turntable.  Not just for us more refined folks anymore, the teens are now turning towards vinyl.
  • Shower speaker.  Although I don’t know how much I want to encourage a longer time in the shower, this is still a great gift idea!
  • Clip-on Selfie Ring for cell phones.
  • A 3-in-1 Breakfast Station.  Geared more for young adults but I’m pretty sure my husband would request this for his office.
  • Ocean Wave Projector. A remote-controlled sound machine projects ocean waves for a sound sleep.
  • Wireless Karaoke Microphone. (just don’t let them take it on a road trip with you, ha!)

    So much good stuff in your guide. I wish I’d saved more of my clothes from the 90s.

    I have girls aged 16 and 18 and some of these will definitely make it to their lists. I actually had already planned on that burrito blanket for my daughter that is in college! It’s so much fun and really a decent price for something that is likely going to get spilled on and used to death!
