Depending on the age you are and your own personal wants and tastes, finding the right birthday gift can be simple or really tough. You might really want a laptop or a car, but not all gifts can or should be big and expensive. It is worth thinking about the level of gifts you can ask for. Sometimes the best gifts are those that are thoughtful, unique, and truly define who you are.
No one knows you better than yourself or will know your teenager’s desire better than you. But here we can give you a few ideas to get you started, the path to the best present you can think of.
Whether it is your birthday and you are compiling a wish list of perfect gifts, or if you are trying to find something for your teenager, family member, or friend to help make their day. The best way to go about it is to consider the items, days out, or experiences that you or they really want. It could be something that has been talked about before or something inspired by a particular love of games, films, music, or anything else in your life.
Another key point to remember is that not all teenagers are alike, not only because of the large range from 13 and up but also because some may still love the idea of toys and games (much like many who are way past their teenage years) while others will prefer more classically older gifts like perfume or designer labels.
If it is your birthday as a teenager, feel free to ask for any of these things or a mixture of them all. You can want a car and also something fun and colourful, or personalised and unique. Think about everything that you like as well as need and if you need help getting going, have a look at some of our suggestions below.
