8 Fun Christmas Gift Ideas for Preteens


The holiday season is officially here, which means the Christmas shopping season has begun! Of course, it isn't easy navigating gift lists. To help you make your Christmas shopping a little easier this holiday, here are some fun Christmas gift ideas for kids of any age.

1. Headphones

If your child loves to have multiple tabs and music open, a pair of headphones will help them stay focused and organized. Because there are so many different types and brands of headphones on the market, make sure to do your research before making a purchase. For instance, consider AirPods for a trendy and functional gift. If your child loves online gaming, a pair of sound-cancellation headphones can help reduce noise in your home and help them stay immersed in the fun.

2. A Subscription Box

Subscription boxes are all the rage right now, and for good reason! They make great gifts because they're both unique and affordable. Plus, you can find a subscription box for just about anything these days. Whether your child is into fashion, online gaming, makeup, or even cats, there's a subscription box for every preteen!

3. A Good Read

There's nothing like cozying up with a good book during the winter months. If your preteen is an avid reader, consider buying them a new book or two this holiday season. If they're not sure what they want to read next, ask a bookseller for recommendations or look up lists online. You can also buy them a gift card to their favorite bookstore so they can pick out their own books.

4. An Online Gaming Membership

Online gaming is becoming increasingly popular among preteens. Services like Stream and Xbox Live allow gamers to play games online with friends as well as access exclusive content. If your preteen loves gaming, consider buying them a membership to one of these services. This way, they can stay connected with their friends and continue playing their favorite games.

5. A Fun Outing

Sometimes the best gifts are experiences rather than things. If your preteen is always asking to go see a movie or go to the mall, consider buying them tickets or a gift card. This way, they can have a fun day out with their friends without you having to worry about the cost. Consider what your preteen does for fun before shopping. For example, if they love to go watch movies or mini-golfing, pay for their admission in advance.

6. A Gift Card

If you're struggling to find a gift for your preteen, a gift card is always a good option. This way, they can buy whatever they want, whether it's clothes, cosmetics, or even food. Just make sure to get them a card for a place where they actually like to shop! As far as the amount of the gift card, $30 is a good starting point.

7. Minecraft

Over 200 million copies of Minecraft sold as of May 2020, showing just how popular the game is among preteens. If your child loves spending time on their computer, they'll love this game. They can build worlds, explore new dimensions, and even play with friends online. Fortunately, Minecraft is among the most relaxing online gaming experiences, so you don't have to worry about them getting too stressed out.

8. Crafting Kits

Crafting kits are one of the best gift ideas for preteens that are creative, love to work with their hands, and enjoy making things. There are kits for just about anything, from jewelry making to soap making. You can even find kits that teach kids how to knit or crochet. If you're not sure what kind of kit to get, ask your preteen what they're interested in or look for recommendations online.

There you have it! These are just a few fun Christmas gift ideas for preteens. With these ideas in mind, you're sure to find the perfect gift for your child this holiday season.
