The holiday season is is in full swing, and we’re pouring through our assortment selecting great gifts for everyone on your shopping list! Many of our picks are inspired by our Twitter contest winner, Jodie. She won a $500 UncommonGoods shopping spree earlier this year, and we’ve had a ton of fun helping her choose the perfect gifts for her favorite people.
After creating guides for babies and kids based on Jodies’ nephews, age 8 months to 6 years, we realized that although Jodie doesn’t have a teen on her shopping list, many parents, aunts and uncles, and grandparents (to name just a few) do. With this in mind, we picked a few of our favorite gifts for teens.
Remote Control SUV Kit- It may not be time to hand over the keys to a new car, but you can hand over this cool kit. The Remote Control SUV kit starts out as a puzzle and snaps together to become a motorized vehicle.
Bike Bells- A great stocking stuffer, these hand-painted bike bells are functional, funny, and stylish.
Guitar String Bracelets- Whether the teen in your life is a musician, music-lover, or just likes to look good, these unisex accessories are chart toppers.
Sneaker Customization Kit- Designer shoes are expensive, but this kit, which includes sneaker wipes, paints, and a high-quality paint brush, makes it easy for your favorite teen to create their own.
Recycled Cotton Animal Mittens- Trendy, but still uncommon, these cozy, cute mittens are made from yarn spun from leftover fabric from upholstery factories that would have otherwise been discarded. They’re also available in mink and skunk.
Black Cat Headphones- More comfortable than earbuds, these hand-crocheted headphones have a vintage feel that still appeals to modern teens.
Big Grips iPad Case- Available in blue or green, these grippy foam covers make your teen’s favorite electronic sidekick easier to hold on to.
From fashionable accessories and beautiful jewelry to techie gadgets and fun games, we’ve got all kinds of great gifts for teens. Stay tuned for more gift guides to find perfect presents for everyone in your life this season!

Father’s Day is coming soon and we’re celebrating dads of all kinds. We’ve already taken a look at great gifts for geeks and we have more fun Father’s Day ideas planned as we count down to June 19!
If your dad is handy with a hammer, skilled with a screwdriver and brilliant with blueprints, he’ll love these gifts for the Handyman Dad.
Written by HGTV’s Todd Davis, this book turns DIY projects into playtime. The handy little manual let’s dad chose from 25 projects within three levels of time commitments: Easy Projects (lava lamp), Afternoon Projects (tire swing) or Weekend Projects (tree house) that kids are sure to love.
Dad may already have a box full of tools, but the Super Tool is an all-in-one gadget that will let him fix things in a pinch when his regular arsenal of fix-it gear isn’t available. Great for the glove box, the kitchen drawer or the office, the Super Tool features a level, tape measure, LED light, hammer, 90-degree-locking screw driver with 16 bits and powerful alloy magnets.
This stool and tote combo isn’t just for gardeners! Made of lightweight steel and water-resistant nylon, the fold-up chair is great for working on lower to the ground home improvement projects (That pipe under the sink? A broken doorknob?) and the detachable bag has 21 pockets for different sized tools.
Looking for more gift ideas for the Handyman Dad? We have more tools, gadgets and gizmos he’s sure to love!
