Christmas on the Cheap, Teenagers

This is where it starts to get tricky. And perhaps a bit more expensive. These would still hopefully all be under $10. Here's what I've come up with.


  • Button necklace. There is so much inspiration if you Google image search "Button necklace". This idea takes some time, but, very cool.
  • Lip Smacker. I was addicted to lip balm as a teenager. I had one for every pocket on every pair of pants.
Boys or girls:

  • iPod skin. Either simple or complicated. There are tons out there.
  • Batch of brownies. I figure one of the driving forces of a teenager is their appetite.
  • Hair product. Another is wanting to look good.
  • Mini basketball and hoop that attaches to the back of their bedroom door. This ones a bit more boyish but apparently is another one that could work for more than one age group. Check out that second photo.
