Beats by Dr. DrCool Christmas Gifts for Teense

Award Winning Cool for the teen music lover

The coolest of cool, these headphones deliver premium playback with fine-tuned acoustics that maximize clarity, breadth, and balance. The comfort-cushion ear cups buffer outside noise for immersive sound so you can experience music the way it was meant to be heard.

A note, there is definitely a cool and a style factor in play for the teen boy or girl.  No doubt these are very high quality headphones and you cannot go wrong.  Note that the stylish metallic colors do come at a premium.  If want to shop around, you can get the basic black for $50-$70 less.  Its a gift, and if it is for teen girl, she will no doubt appreciate the style.  I will say however, that my teen son Quinn (15) has the gold ones, and when we discussed the black, he felt pretty strongly about the color.

If the person you are buying for is past the need to be cool stage, they might prefer a Bose product instead.

Check out the Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth Wireless Headphones here.

Or an upgrade to the Bose Wireless Noise cancelling headphones, particularly if the person travels a lot.  The quiet offered by these headphones allows more rest and relaxation on the trip.

I would say that if the gift is for someone college age or less, go with Dr. Dre.  If older, Bose.  Either way, you cannot go wrong with these very high-quality headphones.

The Leatherman – Charge ALX Multi-Tool, Stainless Steel with Leather SheathCool Christmas Gifts for Teens

For the teen that is the outdoor adventurer.   This was my son Haydon’s (17) pick.  Haydon the stage manager and is very active in building the sets in school plays, and is a journeyman artist at the Mobile Sculpture Workshop.  This is the perfect tool to carry around.

Leatherman was created with one goal in mind, to improve people’s lives by preparing them for the expected and unexpected.   Leatherman is committed to staying local, and is proud to support U.S. workers who are dedicated to the quality craftsmanship that goes into each of our original American multi-tools.

FEATURING 18 TOOLS: Needle nose pliers, regular pliers, hard-wire cutters, wire cutters, crimper, wire stripper, 154CM knife, 420HC serrated knife, saw, cutting hook, ruler, can opener, bottle opener, wood/metal file, diamond-coated file, 2 large bit drivers, and a small bit driver.

While this might at first appear to be a good gift for an older teen boy, if the teen girl on your list likes camping and outdoors, or is like Haydon’s friend Sara who is assistant stage manager/and does much of the tech work, she would love it.

The Leatherman Charge ranges from $140 – $180.  If that is too much for your budget, there are less expensive models starting at $40.
