Gifts for Teens

This year we're collecting gifts at our church for the Urban Youth Impact Christmas Store. We're encouraging our church members to buy gifts for teens since they always seem to get thought of last.

So, what do you buy for teens that won't break the bank? Good question. Here's a list of ideas on a budget. Maybe you can pick up more than just one.


  1. inexpensive mp3 players
  2. gift card for iTunes
  3. gift card for Target or Wal-Mart
  4. Barnes and Nobles gift card
  5. movie tickets
  6. books
  7. music cd's
  8. journal
  9. back packs
  10. board games (i.e., Scrabble, Balderdash, Cadoo, Clue, Monopoly, Scene it?, Trivial Pursuit, Loaded Questions and Twister, or Sorry)
  11. wrist watch

Those are just a few ideas. This list was pulled together from the results of an Internet search. There are tons of ideas not included so go crazy.

A girl I used to work with had a teenage daughter and she really liked getting McDonald's gift cards so she could grab a bite to eat when out with friends. Her mom felt it was better than handing her a few dollars in cash, because she knew where the money was spent.
