The holidays are quickly approaching and the average teenager is already anticipating their various secret santa parties and racking their brains with gift ideas for their friendship circles. For the gift-giving impaired, Christmas can quickly turn from a joyous holiday to a stressful one. However, there are tons of neat ways you can spoil your friend group this holiday season!


  • Gas Gift Card ($5-30)


A car is one of a modern teenager’s most prized possession. However, a car for the average broke teenager can be extremely expensive and a commitment to keep up with and maintain. A gift card  to your friend’s most visited gas station can save them the hassle of one of the most frustrating aspects of owning a car. Especially if you’re the one out of the friend group who tends to request rides from your fellow car-owning friends, this gift idea is perfect for you.

  1. Fuzzy Socks ($2-$10)

One of the best parts of the fall and winter season are the cozy items of clothing you are finally able to drag from the back of your closet, including fuzzy socks. Socks are usually seen as a underwhelming Christmas gift, but when they’re cozy, fun, and simultaneously keep your feet warm during the cold winter months their appeal increases. This quick and inexpensive gift is perfect for Christmas time.

  1. Concert Tickets (Varying Price)

Although on the more expensive side, this Christmas gift is guaranteed to be one your friend will remember. This gift has the opportunity to create unforgettable memories and you can also tag along! If your friends consider themselves music junkies they will definitely appreciate this gift .

  1. Merch ($15-$40)

If concert tickets are a bit out of your price range, an alternative to satisfying your music-loving friend’s needs is through their favorite artists merchandise. Whether it’s a t-shirt, hat, or even a hoodie, your friends will love sporting their favorite artist’s apparel. If your friend isn’t a huge fan of music you can also consider their favorite youtuber or influencer’s merch.

  1. Friend “Coupons” (Free)

Have you ever had that certain thing that one of your friends always asks you to do? A ride? Food? Maybe even a trip to the nail salon? Well instead if gifting them the expected gift card, you can give them friend coupons! 5 rides to school, 3 stops to Chick-Fil-A, or 2 stops to the nail salon that they can renew at anytime throughout the year! This is a fun twist on a gift card and can be used more than once.

  1. Spotify/Apple Music Membership ($99.99)

Most teenagers know that the best way to listen to music is through a streaming service such as Spotify or Apple Music. Those who have these streaming services also know how much of a hassle it is only having the “free” version of these apps with only a few skips, ads, and a limited music choice. However, Spotify offers a $20 discount on the usual $120 for those who pay for their annual membership up front, an amazing opportunity to treat your friends for the next year. Buying your friend a streaming service for a year is the perfect gift this holiday season!

  1. Phone/Laptop Case ($10-$30)

Cases for your devices are often one of those things you only care for when you first purchase your device and don’t blink an eye at ever again. This usually leads to broken, ripped, or overused cases. Buying your friend a new laptop/phone case is a great way to treat your friends this season! You can find a variety at,, or even
