Teenagers are intimidating. They speak their own language, blurt out confusing jokes, and somehow have always already seen the TikToks you send them. It can be hard to keep up with the absolute coolest kids around, and that’s especially true when it comes to holiday gift-giving. For the past few years, we’ve informally polled some of the
terrifying supercool teens in our lives to find out what presents they really want. These ideas are not one-size-fits-all, but they might help you get inspired and reach the ultimate goal: giving a gift the teen in your life actually likes.
Be sure to check out our many other gift guides, including the Best Viral TikTok Gadgets, 25 Amazing Gifts Under $25, and Gifts for Coffee Lovers.
