For those who loves and knows how to give gifts, do not need to explain that his choice should be approached not only in terms of practicality and usefulness, but also based on the individual preferences of the person to whom it is presented. It is no secret that the gift, given to "show" or liked you personally, rather than to please the hero of the occasion, can upset him. So, no fresh ideas, observation and a sincere desire to deliver udovolsvie the person for whom the gift is not enough. In the case of children the same age, and is more or less clear: we are united with the first one generation and similar interests, and how to please the baby, everyone knows. But gifts for teens is not as simple as it may seem.
And it is not that teens are more demanding and capricious. The point is you and me. We do not want to see them as someone other than children. And gifts to choose, based on the fact that for us they are the same girls and boys, our children, nephews and younger brothers and sisters. We forget that they perceive themselves adults. If we add to this teenage hypersensitivity, wrong-chosen gift can not only please the teenager, but also lead to a loss of understanding. So that is how it all seriously. Nevertheless, do not be upset, it is better to try to stick to a few simple rules that will help not only to choose the right gift, but also to strengthen your relationship with a grown child.
Gift for teens: instructions for the "dummies"
In no case do not give a teenager something to get rid of. Not only did he immediately notice it, so also offended you. And against the background of constant emotional instability resistance you get the full program. Then fit the rule of "less is better." Expensive, but totally unnecessary teenager thing will please a lot less than a small gift, picked up, and maybe made their own hands, but in the interests of the adolescent. So that he felt that his interests are not alien to you and do not cause you perplexity. Even if this is not true.
For example, you do not have a large sum of money on an expensive gift, but you're fine knit or sew. You, with proper observation, there is a lot of options, how to please a teenager. Knitted sweater with the name of a favorite punk band teenager. Or sew him a shirt like his idol on the poster. For a teenage girl you have to try a little more, but there is no limit to perfection. Just flip through it to the holes iced fashion magazine. Ask around, what she likes, and go for it.
And he, the rebel, seeks the storm
Despite the fact that the children are in their teens are more in need of our care and custody, as it were, in contrast, they strive for freedom and independence from us adults. And feel adults, independent people with their world view, and the right to vote. So if you can not pick up a gift or are afraid to make a mistake, you can donate some money. Maybe you are worried that such a gift is not the element of surprise and it looks kind of recognition in his own impotence? Forget about it. The teenager will see the depth of your confidence and recognition of its right to independence. On the contrary, so you are sure to earn a certain number of bonus points.
Think about the fact that you give your grown child of best advance. Then you will have time to penetrate his interests. And it should be done, because in addition to the fact that it will help you choose a gift, you will have a unique opportunity to establish contact with the child. In the end, remember myself at that age, but without remarks "I'm at that age behaved differently and was restrained."
Choosing gifts teens, boys, you almost run into trouble if you just look at the walls in the room. Posters and signs will tell you a lot. If they depict participants rock band, try to get tickets to their concert. Not one ticket and a couple. To the teenager had the opportunity to go there with a friend or girlfriend.
If a teenage boy "sleeping" in an embrace with a computer, ask whether he does not want to change anything: add RAM, change video or sound card, and maybe he wants a new monitor or the steering wheel for racing games on the simulators ? A teenage girl is happy to subscription to a fitness club or modeling school when it was full of her dreams. By the way, there are various acting classes or dance school where she can write and pay tuition. Remember that every little girl dreams of becoming an actress.
For the sake of the spirit of contradiction
No gifts "for growth"! This phrase can be a major theme when choosing a gift for a teenager. Do not forget that for them there is no "tomorrow" in the same sense that we have. They live for today. And presented summer jacket is unlikely to please him. The same can be said about the practical gifts. No practicality and reminders of everyday life! Let your gift will be bright and unusual.
Even if you decide to give something of clothes, do not choose it yourself. Purchase a gift certificate for some money in one of the shops of youth clothes and give the teenager to the right to choose. Believe me, this way you will achieve two goals. Will show the teenager that you trust him. And you can bet that he will buy exactly the thing that you would choose for it themselves. But if you were presented with this item as a gift, the teenager would see him in this imposing your tastes. And if he chose their own thing, such problems do not arise.
We're the same blood, you and I
Let your chosen gift will become a symbol of adulthood. Rather, the recognition that you do not see in your baby Chad. Make this the focus, giving is not necessarily expensive, but "adult" thing. For a teenager this symbol can be a set of cosmetics. At the same time, you have to take into account the age of the teenager and choose cosmetics for young skin. Or purchase a certificate to a beauty store or shop online. Let your fashionista will choose their own gift. An alternative could be a subscription for make-up courses. After all, there are not only taught her to use cosmetics, but do it right, to make become a supplement that can emphasize its natural beauty.
A teenage boy will certainly appreciate as a gift to some news from the field of high technologies. The main thing is to ask what he wants. Or, if he raves about programming and have long surpassed their knowledge in the curriculum, pay him the prestigious programming courses. This gift will not only delight but also will be a good foundation for further development of the teenager in this direction.
Choosing a gift-teen girl or young boy, do not forget that it is very important to feel that when choosing a gift you first thought about it, about their interests, hobbies and needs. And then even the most insignificant Present will be another bridge thrown towards understanding and harmony in your relationship.
