- Wallet Ninja Multi-tool – This nifty gadget is a slim piece of steel that can easily fit into a wallet or pocket and is no bigger than a credit card. With 18 tools including a cell phone stand, this would make a perfect stocking stuffer for a teenager on the go.
- This summer fashion trend of flashy metallic tattoos has stayed strong this school year, thanks to teen celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez continually showing them off. Gone are the days of temporary butterflies and peace signs – sheets of these fun shiny body art can be picked up almost anywhere.
- Another stocking stuffer idea if your student drives often is a gift card to a local gas station. Across PA Sheetz and Wawa let you purchase gift cards in store and online for almost any amount.
- Mini Bluetooth Speaker – These come in all shapes, sizes and price ranges, and allow students to connect their devices wirelessly. Inexpensive options can be found at places like Bed Bath & Beyond like this rainbow light speaker for under $20 – some options are even waterproof! Best Buy stocks the largest variety of high-quality speakers, from Beats by Dre to Bose, the leader in home sound systems, which can be found online here or in store.
- Remote control cars are a thing of the past – with the release of the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (in theaters December 18) the latest tie-in toy is an app-controlled droid BB-8. It didn’t take long for Disney to partner with robot makers Sphero to bring the adorable round droid featured in the new film to life. BB-8 can explore your home, chase the family pet, and deliver holographic messages all controlled by an app on your phone. As you would expect, droids don’t come cheap and this can be found on most retails sites for around $150.
It is the season of giving, so the nice gift of all is to teach your children the importance of giving to those less fortunate.
