The Gift Idea Guide for Your Teen or College Student

The Gift Ideas Guide for your Teen or College Student

High school and college aged kids are sometimes the hardest to buy for because everything we (translation: adults) pick can be “lame.” Or whatever the word for uncool is these days. 😉

But no fear! I’ve done the work for you and scoured my favorite store Amazon for some amazing gifts that are perfect for your older child.

Since this list contains an overwhelming number of unisex gifts, I didn’t divide the gifts by sex but some are distinctly boy or girl. So, have fun getting inspiration to get those big hugs or exuberant high fives for whatever the occasion.

And to make your life even easier you can shop right from this page! Just click right on the image to go straight to that specific item on Amazon.

Disclosure: I do earn a small commission anytime a purchase is made using any one of my Amazon links. If you do decide to purchase any of these awesome gifts, it actually helps to keep this blog running smoothly by purchasing through one of my links. Thanks a bunch! Happy Shopping! 😉

Hi! I'm Brandi Michel and, not too long ago, I was that frazzled, tired, and overwhelmed mom. Having a family has ALWAYS been my dream, but when it happened - I didn't know how to actually enjoy my blessing of having a family.

That is, until I learned how to tap into a grace that allows me to live in the beautiful, mundane, and even sometimes crazy moments of life. To not just love and take care of my family but to be truly present and enjoy them, too. The goal of Family Felicity is to help you do the same!
