Buying Christmas presents for children gets a lot harder once they get past the ‘toys’ stage; it’s easy to just give them money or a voucher so they can get themselves what they want. And that’s fine, sometimes. But, sometimes, it’s much nicer to give an actual gift. Here I’ve rounded up some cool presents for the young people in your life in my guide to Christmas Gifts for Tweens and Teens!

1. Stunt Scooter – Skates.co.uk – £69.99 RRP
This nifty little scooter is ideal for younger boys and girls who need a new set of wheels to get around. A perfect entry-level stunt scooter, this is lightweight, yet sturdy, and comes almost-built, with just the handles to pop on and tighten! The website has oodles of other cool gear such as skateboards, roller skates, mini BMX and balance boards, as well as all the safety gear to go with them!
2. Personalised Liberty Bracelet – Find Me a Gift – £23.99
This beautiful and oh-so-girly bracelet is perfect for the young lady who wants to wear jewellery that will turn heads! Made from pretty Liberty fabric and featuring a sterling silver charm carefully engraved with the initial of your choice, the bracelet is presented in a stylish box, all ready for giving!
3. Plug ‘n’ Play Retro TV Games – Find Me a Gift – £9.99
This fab little gadget will let your teens and tweens experience the video games from your childhood! Simply plug into your TV and away you go.

4. ‘Love Lily’ Fragrance – Accessorize – £19.00
This sweet and vibrant perfume features notes of raspberry, orange, jasmine and sweet vanilla for a youthful and pretty fragrance, ideal for a first-time perfume. Presented in a lovely, chunky bottle with a pink flower in the cap.
5. Personalised Stationery – TOAD® Diaries – Prices Vary
This website offers a fantastic range of stationery that can be personalised in different ways. From diaries, to notebooks, to their new ‘The Pad’ sketchbooks, these gifts are great for kids (and adults!) who want a grown-up looking book to jot notes or sketch in.
6. Top Trumps (Fantasy Retro Set) – £5.99
The classic card game of Top Trumps is stepping back to the 80s with the re-release of its retro collections! I was very excited to see the ‘Fantasy’ set, which I played as a kid with my brother (who was even more excited, as he’d been searching for them on eBay!). A great stocking-filler for kids, Top Trumps have loads of different sets available for all the family to play. Other retro sets in the re-release include Crazy Cars, Exotic Cars, Horror and Today’s Strikers, revealing key facts and figures such as which 90s sports car was the fastest, what 70s b-movie creature has the highest Horror rating and how many international goals your favourite striker had in 1992!
7. Personalised Goodies – Bags of Love – Prices Vary
I loved owning stuff with my name on when I was a kid and, fortunately, ‘Kelly’ was pretty common in the 80s (thanks, ‘Charlie’s Angels!) so I could usually find something in a gift shop. I would have been even more chuffed, however, if I could have had a totally personalised pencil tin or lunch bag, like these fab items from Bags of Love. Items can be completely personalised with photos and text of your choice, so if your kids are obsessed with ‘Jaws’ or Anime, or whatever their thing, you can create a fun gift just for them! There is a whole, huge range of products to choose from, including bags, cushions, blankets and bedding, kitchen wares and much, much more!
8. Wise-ish Words For… by The Book of Everyone – Prices from £7.95
These personalised books full of inspiring words make a unique gift for your kids. Easy to create online and printed and delivered in no time at all, you can truly give your child something that is just for them. Here’s a short video review…
I hope you’ve gained some inspiration from my Christmas gift guide for tweens and teens? It’s certainly given me a few ideas for the young people I need to buy for this year!
