Some of the gifts on this list were given to us for review, but as usual, all opinions are my own.
Sprocket 2 -in-1
A Camera your teen will bring to school trips and hangouts and all the kids will be able to share their Instagram moments and awesome time together, giving everybody memories to take home!
Here’s what I love about The Sprocket:
- It’s a Pocket-size printer
About the size of a smartphone, this printer goes anywhere. It can easily fit into your bag or backpack, and it’s so light you’ll barely notice it’s there.
- It has Seamless Bluetooth connectivity
Allows you and your friends to connect and wirelessly print from the printer.
- It offers Simple paper load
Open the top of the printer, drop paper in, and start printing. Get started right away with the included 10-sheet pack of photo paper.
- Easy social media printing
Easily print your photos from social media. Connect your social media accounts to the HP Sprocket App and instantly turn any of those photos into colorful prints.
- Built-in 5 MP camera
Equipped with an LED dual color flash, it allows you to capture and print photos in the moment.
- HP Sprocket App
You can easily customize your photo before printing it. Tap the Edit button to add a filter, frame, sticker, text, emojis, or to crop your image.
Sprocket 2-in-1 is only available at Best Buy!
It brings the best of gun games, video games and outdoor fun! All-new Laser X features sophisticated electronics and optics that give players pinpoint blasting accuracy up to 200 feet.
All Laser X sets work together, so games can have as few as two players – or the whole neighborhood can play together. Advanced sensors in the Laser X blaster know when players are blasting, being hit, running or hiding. An interactive “coach” uses this information to give players tips and tricks throughout the game.
The receiver vest keeps track of hits. After 10 hits, players are eliminated from the game. Players can choose to be on teams or select “rogue” mode where it’s every player for him or herself.
Laser X can be played outside in bright sunlight or in the dark. It is available in sets that equip two players for $49.99 or that equip one player for $24.99 at Target.com and other retailers. The Long Range Blaster ($39.99) and Gaming Tower ($39.99) are also included in the review pack. More info is available at: GetLaserX.com.

Apple Watch 3 series
My son has asked for just one gift this Christmas and I debated about it, but I’m pretty sure Santa is bringing him one!
It offers all the phone functionalities plus the cool factor of being portable and easy to manage apps, FaceTime, make phone calls and so much more! I know that will be a winner under the tree!

Steam and iTunes/Google Play Store Cards
How many times have your kids asked for money for new games or a new song? Giving them a card will give them a budget and something to work with every time they want a new game and/or a new song! Those are great stocking stuffers or even a main gift, depending on the amount you pre-load.
You can also grab them at Best Buy!
Movie Gift Cards
It’s awesome to be able to give your kid a card and they can invite friends or use the card for that special snack when they come to the movies with you! Always a favorite!
Do you have a teen? What would you add to my list?
Can’t wait to hear what you think, as usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
I do think my daughter would love the Sprocket. She was just telling me about the instant print cameras and how she wanted one. I think this would be perfect for her.
Thanks for your gift guide, am thinking of getting my brother with smartwatch. Hope he is not too uptight for it 🙂
I totally need to get my cousins some from here! Thanks for the tips!
I know the Apple Watch is a great gift for teens. It is a hit with the the teens among whom I work. They think it is cool as it has apps they like. I did not know they can be used to make phone calls. what a nice gift for teen techies.

I don’t have any teens to shop for this year, but these do look like great suggestions. I’ve never heard of the sprocket before!
Teens are so incredibly hard to shop for. My sister is 19 and never gives me any gift suggestions so I am stuck with gift cards. I much prefer your ideas!
I love this gift guide. I hadn’t heard of Sprocket. I need to check that out!
These are all great gifts. Is it wrong that I really want the Laser X!
My kids go crazy for iTunes gift cards! That camera looks pretty cool too. It gets harder and harder to shop every year, so it is nice to have some ideas.
I hadn’t heard of it before, but the Sprocket is a great gift idea! Teens are often hard for me to figure out for gifts, so it is nice to get some help in this arena. 🙂

These gifts are something which any teen will flip for. The Sprocket and the Apple watch are something which I too would love to be gifted.
The Sprocket is really neat! My son asked for a gaming PC this year, so that’s his major gift. I got him some surprises though for under the tree.

Anything that is technology related is always a big hit for teenagers. Some of it are affordable some are not. Its good that you got to read some post like this that gives you an idea on what to give for your teenage family member.
Today I learned my husband is a teen….LOL!! But seriously, so many great ideas especially for those who love tech & video games
What a great gift guide. That camera is awesome!
My teen would love many of these gift ideas to see under the tree this holiday season. The Apple watch and the gift cards would be up her alley!
What? I want that Sproket. That’s pretty cool. My teen would love it too. 😉
These are awesome gift ideas. These are perfect gifts for the holiday season. Thank you for sharing this.
I love the ideas you have. Teens are expensive to buy for, so gift cards are always a great option.
I know the gift ideas are supposed to be for teens, but I want that camera/printer for me! It looks like such a fun instant camera!
My kids would love everything you mentioned. Some stellar ideas I needed!
These are some awesome gift ideas. I wouldn’t mind one of those printer 2-1 gadgets!

These are really awesome gift ideas! I am sure my daughter will love this!
I have a few teens on my list and I NEVER know what to get them. Lists like this make it SOOOO much easier so thank you for taking the time to put it together. I’m definitely going to check out the HP Sprocket 2in1!
My son would love to find the Laser X under the Christmas tree. I bet his friends would love to play with it too.
I find my teenage son getting harder to shop for. This is a great list. I did pick up a Google Play Store gift card for him.
That is a handy gadget for sure! I would love to have one for myself!
great ideas and the apple watch is a bit too expensive for a teen i think though ill get it for myself!
sprocket 2in1 is really interesting! I wonder if I could get one for my sister because she wants this kind of stuff, very handy!
Sprocket is really cool gift idea for this Christmas! I love how the size is compact!
I think this mini printer is super cool!! I would love to have one for my pics.
These are all great gift ideas. I have always wanted an Apple Watch for myself, actually.
I always get some movie gift certificates for stocking stuffers. The kids love to go see all the latest movies. my son has been asking for an Apple watch but I’m not sure if Santa is going to bring him one or not yet.
My teen just wants money to buy whatever he wants this year. I’m sure he has something in mind because he’s asked his dad and grandma for the same thing. These are amazing gift ideas.
This is a great holiday gift guide for teens! I’m sure many of them would love the Apple Watch!
These are all great gift ideas for teens. I would love the HP Sprocket 2-in-1 for myself. My Daughter has been asking for an Apple Watch.
Those are really cool gift ideas! I think the sprocket printer is really awesome and it’s great for printing pictures especially of trips and special moments!
If I was a teen I think I would go totally nuts for the apple watch for sure, loving the other items too but apple watch is where it is at for my teenage self.
These are great ideas! I love the sprocket! My teenage niece would love one of these. Heck, I would love one of these. That is so cool!
I wish I was a teenager now! Back in the 90’s, we didn’t get cool Christmas gifts like these. It was always a sweater, or a frame, or something school related.
That camera is a great idea. I have a couple of teens and they are so hard to buy for.
The sprocket should be an awesome idea for kids that love social media and sharing. The convenient printing features are perfect.
So happy I read this post, this is exactly one of the gifts we got our daughter! The laser X is a favorite too!
The Laser X does sound like it would be fun to have some battles with.
What great suggestions! Teens love everything tech these days and I even think that my nine-year-old would love that Apple watch. My husband just recently got one and he’s been eyeing it up.
We have the HP Sprocket 2-in-1 and the kids really love to use it. That one is fun for everyone in the family!
The sprocket sounds so AWESOME.
I know my tween would love that sprocket! She would use it all the time for sure. It is super cool!

I cannot believe Christmas is almost here! I don’t know where the time went and I am not ready!
Great list and ideas, Im no longer a teen but would love a sproket!
All teens love going to the movies so I think none of them will be able to resist movie ticket as gifts.
These are so great! My daughters would love that camera, and my son and his friends would have a ton of fun with Laser X. Very cool!
That HP Sprocket is on my list. *smile* The kids are loving STEAM gift cards right now. I don’t know the game but apparently it’s a hit with teens and college students so I am stocking up on a few STEAM gift cards this Christmas.
The Apple watches are a hit with my two oldest boys. My middle child has all Samsung products, so looking for an alternative that would be his version of the watch. I love the tech involved, that I just may need to get one of these for myself.
We don’t have any teens yet. I have friends with teens, and several of these gift ideas would be perfect for them!
This definitely gives me some great ideas of what to buy my kiddos for Christmas. I think for sure he would like that watch.
jMy youngest sister would love the sprocket, looks really nice. I would also ant it if I were in my teens.
These are much better ideas tan just giving money. Movie coupons are always big hit
My teen would like these! He’s mostly into video games, but I think he’d have fun with the sprocket. Heck, my tween would want one too.
Teens are so hard to buy for and you have some awesome ideas! I love them all, especially the Laser X and the Sprocket.
You have some great ideas here. My teen is getting a Go Pro, so he will be super excited on Christmas morning.
