Teens are thought to be a hard group to buy gifts for. Often their tastes are drawn to expensive gifts (hello iPhone, Apple Watch and Ear Pods!). They can also be picky about what’s on trend, or keen to keep up with what their friends are buying. This can make it incredibly difficult for the gift buyer to know how to choose a present they’ll truly enjoy.
