3 teenagers aged between 14 and 15, 2 boys, 1 girl. I'd like to get them a little gift each for Christmas but have a budget of £10 each. No idea what to get? I don't have teenagers so haven't got a clue what sort of things they would like. Any ideas?

I'd get gift sets from boots jack wills for the boys and something make up related for the girl or iTunes/amazon vouchers.

iTunes or amazon voucher for £10 , put it in an envelope and then stick that to a wrapped bag of chocolate coins/ Terry's chocolate orange. Frankly, it's the only thing that the teenagers I know want. Then they can spend it on music or put it towards something they are saving for.

I second iTunes voucher. Then mine are obsessed with Reeses chocolate.

3 for 2 Boots gift sets. Pos Soap & Glory for girl and Bulldog or another boyish brand for the boys. Or chocolates and an actual tenner. Are they family or just friends? Or a shopping voucher for their local shopping centre

A costa or greggs gift card? Only you know if this would be suitable but my kids at these ages Would have liked those.

£10 in a card and choc orange?

Starbucks card stuck to a box of Maltesers or a Starbucks chocolate coin.

Always get my teen nephews Costa gift cards, they are always appreciated!

Good ideas here already. But if you use amazon look on their under gift ideas for teenagers

I would go with an Amazon gift card and some chocolate. Or a voucher for a local cinema if you know that they like films.

Thanks. Some good ideas. I never knew Costa was so popular with teens!

I will check out the gifts for teens section on Amazon too smile

If you do buy from Amazon go to the top up section in your account and add £50. You get £5 absolutely free. Not much but it all helps.

When I was a teen I was regularly given the deodorant/fragrance gifts sets. I never used them. I still get given them as an adult and they still sit unused. I have my usual antiperspirant and I use that. To me they're a cliched generic gift that tells me I'm not close enough to the giver for them to know what I'm interested in.

Chocolate's a much better choice IMHO. Also a bit generic, but at least it's going to be enjoyed. (Provided no diabetes or allergies).

Op last year my dd favourite present was an amazon gift card 🙄. And yes teenagers love costa dd goes in there for hot chocolate when out with her friends. I think it makes her feel quite grown up grin

Starbucks card

abbsisspartacus Sun 17-Dec-17 08:16:19

I have a teen her and her friends like slogan t-shirts

abbsisspartacus Sun 17-Dec-17 08:17:28

And starbucks she also loves stationary and spotify

ferriswheel Sun 17-Dec-17 08:24:04

An actual posh box of choc that no one else would buy them.

FreemanHardyandWalnuts Sun 17-Dec-17 08:27:00

Had no idea Costa and Starbucks did gift cards! My daughter would always appreciate cash with something small to open - toblerone / box of matchmakers, etc.

niknac1 Sun 17-Dec-17 09:25:27

I think the teens would probably prefer to receive cash, no limitations but I recently got a lovely faux fur snood for £4 from Primark which I think a teen would like. It feels nice to choose something but the recipient can do much more with cash like saving if towards a more expensive gift.

I have several teenage relatives and they would all, without a doubt, much prefer the tenner itself in a card.
