As my girls have gotten older, their gift lists have definitely evolved. It seems only a short time ago they would pour over the store catalogs and make lists that filled the front (and sometimes back) of a sheet of paper. Those days have passed. Now their lists are short, and more influenced by what their friends have and what they see on YouTube. Perhaps you’re shopping for a growing up girl too, so here are some ideas that might be on their tween and teen Christmas list.
TECH Gifts for Tweens & Teens
By far the hottest new gift on my girls list is something I received from a recent conference. The HP Sprocket is a brand new super compact photo printer that can go wherever your tween/teen does. It easily fits into any bag, and can print 2×3-inch stickable snapshots whenever the moment strikes. Plus they can customize the photos before printing with the HP Sprocket App to add fun text, borders, emojis, and more. Add a pop of personality for snapshots and stickers that are totally and uniquely you! [available at: HP / Amazon / Best Buy]
Imagine Siri in your bedroom, only this is Alexa. That’s why both my girls want an Echo or Dot. Here’s the difference in case you’re wondering. The Echo is the original unit and contains a speaker to play music. The Dot has the same smarts of the Echo but is missing a speaker, so your tween/teen would need to plug into speakers if they wanted to ask Alexa to play music.
A little bit of game play mixed with today’s virtual reality technology. Tweens & teens can craft their own marble maze, but then plug in to live it in virtual reality.
School has moved into the age of technology and many time my girls’ homework is found online. You might be ready to start shopping for a notebook computer for your teen or tween. The HP 15 Notebook comes with Windows 10 Home, 2TB hard drive, high-definition display, AMD Radeon R5 graphics, HP TrueVision HD Camera, DTS Studio sound and much more. Score a killer deal on a powered-up HP laptop during QVC’s Best Black Friday™ Sale weekend! Best of all, HP has partnered with QVC to offer two exclusive colors; minty green and soft lilac, and will feature this laptop at the lowest price of the season on Saturday, November 26th.
Stylish activity tracker that looks like jewelry but will help keep your tween/teen active and moving!
Great for family vacations, or just for those days your tween/teen forgets to plug in. Portable chargers are a big thing in our household. [price varies – great options on Amazon]
Portable and great for readers – the Kindle Fire tablets are priced well for families who want to give their kids a bit of technology with their learning. Also the Kindle Unlimited subscription can be great for families to keep their tween/teen plugged in but with limits. [$50 at Amazon with ad screens / $65 with no ads]
Tweens and teens normally love music, so let them jam to their favorite tunes while showering with these fun speaker creatures.
