If you’ve ever been in charge of shopping for a teenager you understand the plight that is finding the right gift.  See, it’s different for teenagers, because they’re more like toddlers than not during the teen years, and it can get ugly if you don’t get things juuuuust so.  I say this as the mother of a teen and someone who WAS a teen for several years of my life.  The emotions, they are everywhere.  So many hormones, so many feeeeeeelings all. of. the. time. and no one does anything right.  It’s genuinely a hard time of life but that doesn’t mean you can’t try to get it right, and I’m always here to help; in fact I sourced my own teen to get some gift ideas so not ALL of you will be hated at your family holiday parties.

    I’ve worked in the book retail business and books for just one of the teenagers are one of the best gifts to give. If it becomes their favorite, they’ll remember you whenever they read it again and again.
