What To Buy For A Teenager
Here at Must Have Toys, we have some knowledge on this subject. Gifting to smaller children seems easy in comparison to finding a present for a teenager. But it’s the best feeling in the world if they are genuinely pleased with a gift you’ve given them. However, it does take a lot of time to tap in to the things they may want. This list may help.

Present For A Teenager – TV Tie-ins
For Teens these days, it’s all about Netflix. They’re loving shows like Pretty Little Liars, Riverdale, Teen Wolf, and Vampire Diaries (all with the appropriate age restrictions, of course – these are 15s). If they don’t have access to these shows via subscription, there’s always the DVDs to buy. In my experience, a teen who has a DVD will watch it over and over, so you can be certain they will be getting use out of it. Here’s the latest Pretty Little Liars.
There are multiple possibilities for other presents around these TV shows. We seem to have bought these Teen Wolf hoodies for lots of teen friends over the last year.
And if they’re in to Game Of Thrones, there’s even a Monopoly set out now. This has the Amazon’s Choice rating for a highly rated, well-priced product available to dispatch immediately.
Present For A Teenager – Film Tie-ins
Many teens will be waiting expectantly for the next Star Wars film, The Last Jedi, to be released at Christmas. There are gazillions of presents to buy for Star Wars fans. Here’s some of our faves:
For trainee jedis, there is the training remote:
There’s the LEGO BB8 construction kit for ages 10-16. This wins an Amazon’s Choice rating as well as being the only LEGO set on the list of 12 Dream Toys released in November 2017.
And you can’t beat Top Trumps. Here’s the Last Jedi version. A good price for a stocking filler.
Present For A Teenager – Funko Pop
When Must Have Toys was in the US recently, we saw loads of these Funko Pop figures on sale in toy stores. They aren’t really toys as such but collector’s figures. You can get them for all the popular films, TV and books. I noticed loads of the Harry Potter figures on sale in Waterstones yesterday. Dobby, shown below, is an Amazon best-seller.
Here’s also Jon Snow from Game of Thrones.
Present For A Teenager – Games
Last Christmas, Pie Face was a massive hit with teens. We’ve been looking at the games that look set to be huge this Christmas. The only game to feature on the list of Dream Toys 2017 is Toilet Trouble below. I think this one has appeal for this age-group!
The ever-popular Exploding Kittens is another one. This also wins an Amazon’s Choice rating.
Present For A Teenager – Robots
There are quite a number of robots and electronics out this Christmas from the Chipie dog, which you’ll have seen in the Argos ad –
– to Cozmo, one of the most-advanced commercial robots available to buy today. This has an Amazon’s Choice rating and appears on its list of Top Ten Toys For Christmas.
Present For A Teenager – American Candy
These are the sweeties of choice for the teen these days. We love this collection of American goodies from Heavenly Sweets.
Present For A Teenager – Anything Emoji
And if all else fails, get something with an emoji on it. This trend may well be on the way out – but it’s only five weeks until Xmas!
