Tech-Savvy Holiday Guide:
Shopping For Teens & Young Adults
Teens and young adults can be some of the most difficult people to shop for during the holiday season. With each generation being a little more tech-savvy and in tune with the latest gadgets, it's easy for parents to fall behind on the newest electronic trends targeting younger audiences. Finding the right gift for your tech-savvy teen doesn't mean spending a fortune. There are many different types of products to complement the tech they already have, as well as affordable options that are perfect as stocking stuffers. Learn about a couple timely trends or get ideas for thrifty alternatives with this tech savvy holiday shopping guide for teens and young adults.
Technology is constantly evolving, but that doesn't mean it's consistently improving. This year, advancements in smart watches and virtual reality apparently are living up to the hype. While even the latest tech can't make up for the fashionable versatility of charm bracelet watches, it does provide fascinating features like activity tracking, the ability to control music from other devices, notifications for email, and even built-in cameras for snapping photos. Virtual reality is paving the way for the future of video games and almost everything else, but for now a cheap virtual reality headset that functions with smartphones for watching movies and playing some games is a cool and satisfying alternative to even the most sophisticated virtual reality models.
Statistically, the post-millennial generation takes more photos than anyone else. Being familiar with the latest technology and influenced by the selfie craze (which isn't showing any signs of slowing down), it's safe to say that today's teen would likely get some use out of a selfie stick, camera accessories for their smartphones or tablets, and digital photo frames for displaying the images they take. It's also thoughtful to offer them gifts that could be in the subject of their photos, like stylish clothes, fashionable accessories, and beautiful jewelry.
Smartphone camera accessories are trending right now for teens who love to take photos. But with so many different smartphone functions, there's many intuitive accessories that don't use the camera system. Practical electronic accessories like power banks for on-the-go charging or screen magnifiers for making videos even bigger on smartphone screens can make your teen's daily smartphone usage more convenient and enjoyable. Personalized smartphone covers and tablet sleeves are also fun gifts for teens who can't seem to live without their devices on hand.
Savvy Stocking Stuffers
There are many different kinds of affordable electronic gifts for teens. Whether you're trying to complement a big-budget item or add some versatility to their current devices, you can't go wrong with low-priced stocking stuffers. For those digital camera aficionados, directors in the making or photographers of the future, flash drives and memory card holders are always helpful when it comes to their creative pursuits. Stylus pens are great for any touch screen, and gift cards for buying some of their favorite movies or music online are perfect and let them pick their own present. You can always dress up gift cards with Christmas gift card holders.
