Fun teen gadgets

What teenagers want for Christmas

Teens are heavily into texting, taking pictures and listening to music. This requires at least a GOOD Smart Phone with Camera and preferably a Digital Camera or camcorder or simply a laptop. See also My list of the best teen gadgets. I recommend the Kindle Fire HD as the best tablet for (most) teens.

One Direction - the new boy band from the UK

This boy band with British and Irish members formed to compete in X-Factor. I guess the boys had their dream come true. At least so far. They brought out their debut album at the end of 2011 and it became an instant hit. It topped the charts in sixteen countries.

What's there to say about a boyband as new as this? They've already brought out a DVD and a book and a new album is coming up.

Hunger Games Gifts

Hot items for Christmas

The Hunger Games is a a science fiction movie (and book series) featuring teens (10-18) who have to play a game of survivor - killing each other off. Not the most positive and upbeat topic. Still, it resonates with kids who live in a school culture that's highly competitive as well.

Is this a good movie to go see with your children? It's one of those 'depends' issues. If you talk about it with your kids, this movie won't do them any harm. Instead it will help them face up to some serious ethical questions that have to be thought about. The main one is: How important is success and survival, would you give up your friends to get it?

That's serious stuff, sure. But teens can handle a bit of serious.

The funnest hats ever!

And yes, this year teens agree with me :) From knitted hats to felt ones, from cartoons to old school... Have fun picking one that you think your teen will love.

For teen guys and girls.

Teen Girl Fashion and Accessories

Hot items for Christmas

Have fun giving your teen girl accessories or cloths.

Johnny Depp

An unlikely teen hero

He is one of my favorite actors and despite being a bit old for me, I still think he's hot.

Winner of the 2011 Teen Choice Award for Best Action Actor and Best Voice Actor, he is cool precisely because he doesn't care about that stuff. He is listed in the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records as the highest paid actor, with $75 million.

Aside from being handsome, he's also one of the best actors alive. Johnny Depp is capable of starring in roles as wide apart as a pirate in the Pirates of the Caribbean and Mad Hatter in Alice and Wonderland. His most popular movies seem to be kind of scary.

Cute Jewelry for Teenagers

Jewelry doesn't necessarily have to be made from precious metals and gems in order to create a lasting impression in gift recipient's mind.

If you know the Teenager's likes and dislikes and gift appropriate Jewelry for Christmas - the Teenager would surely appreciate the gift.

The choice is pretty wide and it's not possible to list all the options here, however - please take a look at some of the Jewelry items I selected and I'm sure you'll find something close to what you actually want to purchase.

Religious Christmas Gifts For Teens

For Religious Teens the best Christmas gift would be something related to the faith. It can be a cross, a bible, t-shirt, bag, keychain or some other gift item with a religious logo or message. If you can get it Personalized - great!

If your Teen shares a special relationship with a Saint, she or he would be delighted to receive a Patron Saint Gift.

Popular books with teens: The most popular series of novels for teens right now is probably the Hunger Games.

These popular books tell the story of a girl in a fictional society who has to choose between being who she is - and her family. Romance comes into it too, of course as well as competition in the 'initiation' into her chosen tribe.

Cards against humanity

THE fun party game of the year (17 and up)

You won't believe it: kids are playing cards again. The rules are simple: someone picks a black card with a question. Everybody comes up with their funniest white card to answer it.

As many of you know, I make a living as an online publisher. This involves writing about stuff that interests me, like the spiritual path and karma, spiritual book reviews and so on. However, to make ends meet, I also do product recommendations. 

That is: I recommend products, and you - the potential customer - get to have less of a chore finding them. It's a win-win, especially since I get a percentage for each sale. The deal is this: follow a link on any of these pages and buy something, and you - without any extra cost to you - are sponsoring me to keep on going. 

I've started out of course with spiritual gifts, but there are also calendars, laptops, iPads, Harry Potter gear etc. It's all stuff I have bought or would buy if my house room and pockets were infinite. They're not and that's OK.
