Finding a gift for a teen can be a difficult and sometimes expensive process. Teens are known for their picky natures, and they often only like a few different brands, styles and items. Finding a gift that a teen will enjoy that costs under $10 is even harder. Fortunately, a surprising number of gift options at the $10 price mark are available.
Accessories are always a popular item with teens, and many of them are under $10. Accessories for boys can include gloves, scarves, belts, socks, jewelry, hats and ear buds or headphones. In addition to these, accessories for girls can also include hair accessories, headbands, tights, jewelry and nail polish. Most of these items can be found for under $10 if you look in the right stores.
Travel items are a perfect gift for the teen who travels a lot, or who is about to go on a trip. Inexpensive travel gifts include small bottles for carrying shampoo and other grooming items to get through security at the airport, a small blanket or pillow to keep warm during the trip, a personalized luggage tag to distinguish their luggage from other travelers, snack kits for them to eat along the way, reading materials, ear buds or a digital copy of a movie for them to play on the trip.
Grooming kits contain many important grooming items that teens use. For a girl, a makeup grooming kit complete with several different brushes and sponges can be a welcome gift. For a boy, a nail grooming kit or hair trimming kit can help him improve his appearance. A spa kit or nail kit for girls is also appreciated. Boys may like a kit of unusual temporary tattoos. Many of these items are well under the $10 mark.
When you are a teen, you are more inclined to experience trends and novelties. A novelty gift is often the perfect gift for a teen who doesn't really need anything. Novelty gifts such as pillows with funny shapes or sayings, shirts with interesting graphics or statements, personalized name plates and signs for the teen's room, novelty candies, pop-culture references and other unusual novelty items will delight a teen and show her you thought about what she likes, rather than what you want her to have.
