Gift Ideas for Teens from Best Buy

There a countless number of things about having teenagers in my house that scare the bejesus out of me.  While I’m not sure my kids could possibly have any more attitude, I know they will get bigger, they will have more friends and they will likely eat everything that isn’t nailed down.  But after doing some research for gift ideas for teens at Best Buy, I have to say I’m a little excited about my potential teens (hey they actually have live long enough to get there).

There are so many fun things for teens.  I know all parents probably don’t agree but I would love to be the house my kids and their friends like to hang out at.  This just gives a parent a little extra security and insight into the life of a teen.  If I had the room I’d have all three of these super fun gift ideas in my house, partly in hopes of enticing my kids and their pals to my house but partly because when they did chose to hang out somewhere else…I could play!!!  Seriously, how fun do these look!?!?!

Triumph Sports USA – 4-in-1 Rotating Game Table

This table features air-powered hockey, billiards, tennis and football for hours of fun. The rotating design allows for easy access and the leg leveler helps keep the table steady.

Harvard – Escalade Sports Single Shootout Basketball Game

Bring the excitement of arcade hoops to your home with the Escalade Sports Harvard Single Shootout Basketball Game. This durable game features everything you need for an exciting shootout: accurate scoring, a countdown clock, 3 mini basketballs, and an air pump. When you’re done, fold it up and store where convenient.

Game Room Dartboard Set

Upgrade your game room with this Trademark Games 15-3402 dartboard set that includes 6 brass tournament-style darts for reliable use and a wood dart cabinet that provides a durable design. Chalk and an eraser let you easily keep score.

Ok so maybe you, like me have a basement with 5 foot ceilings (well not literally they MIGHT be 6′ but still won’t be hosting and basketball shootouts anytime soon) or you don’t trust your teens throwing sharp pointy things at your walls. 

Maybe some tech gear would be more up your alley.  Best Buy has the full collection of cell phones, MP3 players, laptops etc that your kids will be wishing for.  Since every teen will have a different preference on these items you’ll probably want to consult with them before buying.  The only thing worse in the teen world than having last years fashion, is having last year’s tech gadget!  

Or if your teen is all set with their phone, video game system etc consider gift cards they can use with their devices. 

CinemaNow – $5 Movie Download Card

Microsoft – Xbox LIVE 12-Month Gold Membership

Nintendo – Nintendo Points Card for Nintendo Wii

PlayStation Network Code for PlayStation 3 and PSP

And there’s one gift that’d I’d want to give to my kids if they are driving…OnStar FMV and Geek Squad OnStar Installation.  I suppose this might be more for me as it’d be the gift of peace of mind.  But still something I would like my teens to have.
