I had my teen son text his friends to get a list of ideas from them (because that’s how they communicate, right?!). So this is a list of stuff from the source themselves!

An Apple AirTag makes an ideal gift for a teenage girl for several reasons. First and foremost, it provides a sense of security, ensuring that she can easily locate her valuables such as keys, wallet, or even her favorite backpack, which can be a lifesaver for busy, on-the-go teens. The sleek and stylish design of the AirTag appeals to their sense of aesthetics and love for tech gadgets. Additionally, it pairs seamlessly with her iPhone, offering a user-friendly experience. Overall, an Apple AirTag is a practical and thoughtful gift that not only simplifies her daily life but also aligns perfectly with her tech-savvy and fashion-conscious sensibilities.

According to my teen, this is a high-quality keyboard perfect for PC gamers and budding authors due to its low latency. It has per-key programmable colors which look cool, but the feel of the keypad is what makes it so unique. Comes in a variety of colors and sizes.

AirPod Case

If your teen already owns a pair of AirPods, they might like a charging case. While AirPods come with a case, everyone’s looks the same! One way to keep track of your AirPods is to have a case that is all your own. And much like the use of stickers, these cases help show off your teen’s personality. You can get anything from a basic black or leather case, to fun ones that look like Gatorade, Tabasco, Takis, and more!
