Not sure how to show your teen some love on Valentine’s Day? Fight the urge to smother, cuddle or coddle—especially not in front of his or her friends. Instead, gift something you know will make your son or daughter special and loved without being the embarrassing parent that you (apparently) are. These gift ideas will not only show your teen you care, but, who knows, maybe he or she will actually like what you pick (even if they don’t show it).
If your teen is a new driver, he or she already received the greatest gift of all time: their driver’s license. For Valentine’s Day, give them the gift of safety (and treat yourself to peace-of-mind) with the resqme tool, a vehicle safety essential. The small, yet powerful resqme is designed as a rescue device in the event of vehicle entrapment. Severe weather, a car crash or electronic malfunction can cause you or your loved ones to get trapped inside of a vehicle. If your youngster is ever caught in an adverse driving situation, the resqme is the ultimate lifesaver. With a simple pull of the blade guard clip, the sharp steel blade can slice through jammed seat belts or break side windows with its spring-loaded spike. It comes in a variety of colors and easily attaches to a key chain for easy access.
Girls’ Best Friend
Your teen queen might be too young to appreciate diamonds so treat her to girls’ other best friend: chocolate. A beautiful, festive basket filled with an assortment of decadent chocolates will make her feel like the royal you think she is. If your teen is 13 going 30, don’t settle for store-bought candies; this is about going the extra mile to give your daughter a gift she’d be proud to post on social media and share with her friends. For instance,FTD’s Godiva Sampler makes for a beautiful presentation. The simple, but elegant basket includes an assortment of wrapped milk chocolate truffles, wrapped dark chocolate truffles, a rich Godiva milk chocolate bar and chocolate-dipped cashews all wrapped up in a gift basket and topped with a gold bow for an added touch of class and sophistication for a young woman such as herself.
Let’s Hear it for the Boys
Boys will be boys, and, if they’re music lovers, ‘being boys’ likely means constantly blaring of his favorite music through the house at any and all hours. Save your eardrums and give your teen something worth turning up for. The Manhattan Freestyle Wireless Headphones are a perfect gift for the teenage boy who wants to enjoy his favorite band without being constrained by cords…or parents. Plus, the sleek, lightweight design rests comfortably on the head so he can enjoy hours of music from his smartphone, tablet, MP3 player, laptop computer or other Bluetooth-enabled device. The set is powered by a USB rechargeable battery that lasts up to eight hours on a single charge, plus it has built-in capabilities for customized sound control.
