Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teenagers

The teen years are a time of transition that isn’t always easy. Teens typically gravitate more toward their friends and communicate less with their parents. Even when we try to talk to them, they often reply with short answers and don’t care to engage in conversation. That’s what happened when I asked my teens what they wanted for Christmas.

Oh, they had no problem rattling off a few very expensive items (by the way, I find that easy to do as well!), but when I pressed about smaller, more practical gifts they had no suggestions.

Three of our five kids are currently teenagers. I thought they would be a great source to gather stocking stuffer ideas for teenagers. So, I texted them, “I am writing an article about Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teens. Please text me a few of the best stocking stuffers you’ve ever gotten or wished to get.” Half an hour later one of my kids responded, “Tic Tacs!” There were no responses from the others. 

I ended up compiling a list of ideas on my own. Even though they were not forthcoming with ideas, they were more than happy to “approve” or “disapprove” of each item on a list I presented. Below are the items that were approved by my teens.

The 35 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teenagers below are broken into 3 lists:
15 items for girls or boys, 10 items for girls, and 10 items for boys.
I hope they will be helpful to other parents of teens!
