…because, let’s be honest, teens and ‘tweens may be almost the worst on your gift list to shop for this year. BUT (!) don’t let that discourage you. If it’s one thing we know, it’s that you’ll never give them everything they want – and their “friends” will probably always one-up them, so why not buy them something with a bit of a “cool” factor. The fact that we put “cool” in quotes, means we are not. However, we rounded up some super interesting gift ideas for the teens and tweens you love in 2018:
