Valentine's Day is a fun time for teenagers, especially for teen couples. It's a chance for them to show each other how much they care. But because teenagers generally don't have a whole lot of money, their Valentine's Day gifts don't have to be extravagant. Give something from the heart and you can't go wrong.
Give your significant other a box of sweet chocolate treats. To make this gift even better, make it yourself. Find a great recipe for his favorite kind of cookies and bake them for him. Alternatively, bake a batch of sugar cookies cut into Valentine's-themed shapes, such as hearts and lips. Frost the cookies in pink or red royal icing that hardens when it dries. Package them in a Valentine's Day bag and your gift is complete.
Teenage girls love jewelry, so you can't go wrong with this gift for Valentine's Day. Go to her favorite store in the mall and choose something you can see her wearing. Pick something that you think will go with several of her outfits, or have a salesperson help you choose. Although you can buy her expensive jewelry, an inexpensive piece of costume jewelry works just fine.
Most teens have digital cameras or cell phones that they are taking photos on all the time. If you have a lot of pictures of you and your girlfriend or boyfriend doing fun things, put them to use. Print out the photos and place them in a photo album for your significant other. To make this an even better gift, choose a photo album that is made like a scrapbook so that you can decorate the cover with your names and add captions to each photo.
A special date can be just as good as receiving a tangible gift on Valentine's Day. Make a picnic lunch and put it in a basket. Take him to a local park or a spot that is important to both of you. Or, save your money and take her to a nice restaurant that she has been wanting to try.
