Teenage Son? 4 Christmas Gifts That Will Rock This Holiday

Guest post contributed by Emma Sturgis

When it comes to Christmas gifts, you’ll find that shopping for a teenage son is often the hardest to do as there aren’t as many choices as there are for girls. Some young men are selective when it comes to the items that they enjoy, and there are some who don’t have any specific item that they want for Christmas. An easy option is to give a gift card so that your son can get exactly what he wants after the holiday season.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a young girl 6 years or older, Music Box Attic has an overflowing selection of musical gifts to choose from.  I picked out this Silver and Pink Ballerina Music Box with Fairy Inlay for my 11 year old daughter.  I know she will absolutely love it.  

The box is deep enough to fill with many precious treasures including any type of jewelry or cards.  It opens up with an adorable spinning Ballerina dancing to the tune of Swan Lake.  Once the loot is added, the Ballerina musical box closes and is easily transported with a pink beaded handle.

Find Great Gifts on a Budget

 Gifts

Do you dread birthdays or special occasions because you simply don’t have the extra cash to buy a gift?  Do you always seem to have a date saved on the calendar for a baby shower, wedding, or anniversary?  It is wonderful to have friends and family that invite you to their special events.  However, it can be a burden when you live on a tight budget. 

One solution to this problem is to shop year round.  Keeping birthdays in mind, have a watchful eye for bargains while you are already out shopping.  Sometimes you can find the perfect gift out of season and on sale.  Go ahead and buy it and tuck it away for later when you’ll need the gift.  This will eliminate the stress of having to rush out and buy a gift at the last minute and possibly overspending.

I have a special place where I store pre-bought gifts.  See, the key to purchasing early is to remember where you hid them and who they are for!  Try placing a sticky note on the gift that will remind you who it is for and for what occasion.  

With three children, we are forced to pre-buy.  I make it a point to check out clearance isles everywhere I go.  One year we bought birthday gifts for our three children and all of our nieces and nephews on one totally amazing clearance isle.  It was a hot spot!  We didn’t have a lot of extra cash but knew if we didn’t go ahead and take advantage of the sale we would end up paying 75% more later on.

Another suggestion is to shop on Black Friday or Cyber Monday when stores dramatically lower their prices for quick 24 hour sales.  We personally can’t take the Black Friday madness, but have found that Cyber Monday is just as good.  Last year we purchased the majority of our Christmas gifts on Cyber Monday. 

You can be a great gift giver on a budget!   Next time you are out, stop by the clearance isle or the sale racks.  You may be surprised at what you find!
