Homemade Gift Ideas for Teens

I’m sharing these gift ideas with you, in the hopes that you will consider giving more homemade gifts this year. Not only are they often much cheaper than giving store-bought gifts, but they are also much more meaningful, because you have to spend your time creating them for the recipient.

So far, I’ve shared gifts ideas for kids, gift ideas for women and gift ideas for men. Today we’re talking gifts for teens. Here are 15 gift ideas that teens would love:

    My children are 17 and 21. This year I am making baskets. My daughter likes to bake so I will be making a basket of stuff to make cookies and muffins with pans that she can move out with. My son loves to cook with spices and sauces so I will be putting together a basket for him so he can be creative while he is cooking.

    When I first saw the title to the article I was sort of rolling my eyes because teens are SO hard to buy for in some respects and homemade gifts are not what first come to mind…. BUT… I have to say these are all really great ideas and I can’t think of any teen I know that wouldn’t like them! Kudos!

      I feel the same way, which is why I searched extra hard for gifts that most teens would actually want to receive!

    My teens love candy and money, so thanks for the different ideas for packaging them! Of course they will get socks and underwear whether they want them or not!

    I do my kids (24, 26, 28) baskets for Easter. I have done bath towels with candles, one with movies, popcorn, wine ane wine glasses and a blanket, and my favorite is a colander with dish towels, cooking utensils and ingredients for spaghetti sauce.
