This story is part of our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.
Teenagers are a notoriously difficult crowd to please, especially when it comes to holiday gifts. You might think something is a good gift, but later you find it pushed to the back of a closet. Or what's popular one week is totally obsolete the next. It's hard to follow. But don't give up and buy that just yet - we're here to help. We've put together a list of the best gifts for teens, with a little something for everyone.
Some of these gift ideas are practical, like a handy tote bag and noise-canceling headphones. Others feel like little luxuries — for example, scented candles, comfy slippers, and a fluffy weighted blanket. And then there are items just for fun: a turntable, a Nintendo Switch and even a boba tea kit. Whatever you choose, it's sure to bring some holiday cheer to the teenager in your life. And they might just be grateful…for once.
Candles make a great gift, and they work just as well as stocking stuffers. With so many options, it can be difficult to find the perfect scent your teen will enjoy. But the folks at Homesick have made it easy by offering unique candles that will cater to all tastes. Hogwarts fans will enjoy Homesick's new Harry Potter collection. But you can also find candles inspired by US states, MLB stadiums, Star Wars and more. The standard 13.75 ounce size starts at $38.
