With the holidays coming up, people are scrambling to buy their loved ones presents, but they often struggle with deciding on the perfect gift. Buying gifts for teenagers can be especially difficult, so we compiled a list of the best presents you can buy for them. (Yes, we live in 2018 which is why most of the items on here are electronic and targeted for the youth groups).

1. Phone accessories. This includes cases, pop sockets, portable chargers, etc. These items have clocked in at #1 on all lists for the most popular items in 2018.

2. Subscription boxes. Companies like Stitch Fix, Trunk Club, Dollar Shave Club, and Tie Bar send boxes to your house with their merchandise. While you do have to pay a monthly fee, you get to keep the products and clothes they ship to you, making them on of the best presents of 2018!

3. Smart Watches. High-quality companies, including Apple, Samsung, Motorola, and Asus, started the trend for smart watches, but now more than 50 companies are hopping on the train. Smart watches are a great gift as they can not only tell time, but allow you to play music, text, and even call.

4. Hydro flasks. They can hold ice water upwards to twelve hours and can keep your drink warm up to six hours. One of their most appealing aspects though is personalization. You can choose from a variety of sizes, colors, and different models; in addition, you can add stickers to decorate it. Although somewhat expensive (a 32 OZ costs $40, a 24 OZ costs $35, etc.), they are some of the hottest gifts on the market right now.

5. Xbox One/ PS4. Even if you don’t use it to play games, you can still stream music, watch movies, and watch TV on Hulu, Netflix, and other streaming networks. The price varies depending on the model of the console. The more recent the model, the better the quality. For example, the Xbox One X, the most recent console from Microsoft, is more expensive, but it comes with 4K gaming, better bandwidth (allows for a smoother video), and 40% more power than any other console they have sold before. The most recent console Sony has come out with is the PlayStation 4 Pro. This console offers a slimmer console than the regular PS4, and allows for modes for gaming and streaming. With “PS4 Boost Mode”, you get better graphics and a higher FPS (Frames per Second).

In summary, there are a variety of great products you can purchase for teens for the holidays, and these are only a few of the hottest items on the market right now. Happy Holidays!
