Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year, also comes packed with parties, events, church holiday activities, baking and never enough time for Christmas movies! In between all that you’re also supposed to be better than Santa at choosing gifts for the loved ones in your life. At times this season can feel stressful, opposite of most wonderful by miles.
My hope is with bringing more simplicity to our giving, it will help put things back in perspective, bringing back joy to the season.
This age group (pre-teens – teenagers) is often difficult to buy for. Too big for toys, perhaps tired of homemade scarves and overall into tech, the task of finding the foolproof gift for a teen is daunting. I have done a little hunting and found several options that I believe just about any teenager would be partial to! Each of the ideas below is American made, which can put your mind at ease that you will receive the item in plenty of time for Christmas. I still recommend ordering ahead to ensure availability and of course, regular holiday postal delays.
In addition to American made, I carefully choose gifting ideas for the teen that has a spark of patriotism. I think you will see in each of these options a note of love for our great country. The teen years is such a vital period in which to instill patriot pride in their young hearts. I hope you find much joy in gifting one of these options! Have a blessed Christmas.
