Remember when shopping for your kids was easy? Toys for toddlers and kids are less expensive and a little goes a long way. Now that they’re older, it gets harder and harder to bring that same spark of joy into their faces with Christmas gifts. Not to mention, it gets more expensive the older they get! That’s why we’ve put together a list of Christmas gifts for teens.
