Best Technology Gifts for Teenagers

Most teenagers are obsessed with tech, so if you are looking for ideas for birthdays or special occasions, technology gifts for teenagers can be a great idea. There is a wide range of choices out there from cool gadgets, fun music, and lighting tech to useful tools that support their increasingly online lifestyle.

Our Fave Tech Gifts for Teens

Portable Charger

One thing that unites all teenagers is the phone. If your teenager is always running out of battery power, a mobile charging pack can keep him or her fully connected wherever their day may take them. A portable charger is small enough to fit into a bag or pocket and can deliver a high speed charge. We liked the Anker PowerCore, but other brands are also available.

Technology gifts for teenagers that provide a useful function are always welcome. In addition it means that there are no excuses for not calling home because of running out of power!

Digital Drums

If your teenager is interested in making music, choose from a wide range of music tech. Sphero Tech Drums is a great way to make music without the need to buy expensive musical instruments. The coloured rings allow you to compose music by tapping on the surface of the light up rings and you can get access to a bank of sounds as well as sync it with other music apps such as Garage Band. If your teenager wants to try out his or her own musical creations, he or she can create a musical masterpiece with just a few taps of the finger.

Wireless Headphones

Listening to music is also important and technology gifts for teenagers that enable this to happen are always going to be well received. Wireless headphones incorporated into a beanie hat or headband will allow your teenager to listen to music while running, walking or even falling asleep in bed!

When you are a teenager, your room is your domain, so technology gifts for teenagers that help improve or add to the individuality and comfort of their bedroom are likely to be popular.

Mood Lighting

Lighting gifts are great tech technology gifts for teenagers. The Lunsy Smart LED Strip Lights can create a wonderful lighting ambience that syncs with music and can be controlled via the phone.

Essential Oils & Diffuser

Alternatively, why not give your teenagers a gift to improve the atmosphere of the bedroom? The NOW Foods Portable USB Oil Diffuser is a heat free oil diffuser that gently releases fragrant essential oils into the atmosphere. Girls will love the calming fragrance that can create a festival atmosphere and if you have teenage boys at home, it will help mask the smell of old socks and teenage hormones!

Choose from a range of cool fragrances from NOW Foods, such as Orange Essential Oil,  Peace and Harmony or Organic Peppermint. These fragrances are suitable for all teenagers, and they will love that their room always smells good and a little bit mysterious and different from the rest of the family home.
