Teenagers are often capricious in their desires and it is very difficult to surprise them with a gift. Moreover, the budget for New Year's gifts from parents is limited, and the child does not want to buy another gadget.
Modern teenagers are spoiled with gifts, it is already difficult to surprise them with anything. And at the same time, they expect miracles for the New Year no less than babies. The task of adults is to moderately support their faith in miracles and in parenting capabilities. A New Year's gift does not have to be expensive at all. 13-15 year old children no longer believe in fairy tales about Santa Claus, therefore, it is necessary to explain about the financial capabilities of the family in advance.
There are children who clearly know what they want to receive as a gift. There are children with exaggerated requirements or constantly doubting their desires. In these cases, adults must decide for themselves how to bestow the child.
Some children are still passionate about constructors or board games. In this case, Lego is a safe bet for boys. Dixit and Imaginarium are the leaders among board games. Girls can be presented with a porcelain collectible doll. By the way, it is much easier to give gifts to girls. Boys will not appreciate fashionable clothes and jewelry as a presentation. Teenage girls can already be gifted cosmetics by age. Belarusian manufacturers (Belita Viteks), Clinique, Cover Girl, Urban Decay have teenage lines of cosmetics and care.
A wristwatch can become a universal gift for boys and girls. Moreover, this gift may well fit into the family budget. You don't have to buy expensive brands. There are excellent budget watch brands on the market (for example, Swatch, Pobeda) with good consumer properties. Even if the child has a mobile phone, the watch will not be a superfluous accessory. This is a great opportunity to learn how to wear them neatly.
But there is still such an endangered species as reading children! Such a teenager can be given a book as a "load". But exactly the one he is asking for. If you do not yet allow reading Stephen King or Dmitry Glukhovsky, an exception can be made on such a holiday. Of course, everything should be within the limits of permissible and too "adult" books should not be donated.
