    Do you guys know of any Interesting Gifts you could give a Teen?

    Something Creative and Cool, Out of the box. Not your typical gift such as a movie,giftcard, clothes ect ect. boring lol.

    One Idea of mine was a Marshmellow Launcher Gun. So you see where my heads at branch off of that and shoot me some ideas or links. It would really Help.

    Thank you.

    This isn't creepy in the least.

    Please tell me its for a family member or something. Anyways tickets to a concert or a sporting event they like would suffice.

    Wellthats the problem we need to still put though into things and be creative! Everything is so not personal anymore. I believe that people should still give bday cards and call others on their bday and sayd "Happy Birthday" in person or over the phone...not through text lol.

    Its about the thought and meaning. I need some cool ideas damn it!

    My teenage nephew just started getting into weight lifting and has been at it for a few months. He works out with a very old bench that's about to fall apart any moment and a limited set of weights. I've decided for his birthday I'm either going to get him a bench/weight set, or a year membership to a gym. If you want the gift to be personal, perhaps it should relate to something they really enjoy, and not some random cool gadget that may or may not peak their interest.

    Thats cool, im sure he will like that. Im all about personalized gifts like you said but im just thinking with all the new weird gadgets out there and strange gifts I thought it would be cool if people on this site came across something that would really take some back a little bit

    Two options: (1) cash, or (2) find something of his/hers that's outdated and upgrade it. (kinda like the weight set example from above.)
    I'm a teen so my word is credible.

    That doesn't make sense, they work just like a Visa Card. You can spend them anywhere and on anything (anywhere they take a credit card that is). All you need to do is call in or use the net to activate it.

    Tickets to a concert. or rather gift card to ticketmaster? I know you said no giftcards, but this is a bit more specific and allows some freedom for timing.

    if not, why not an amp? (assuming they play electric guitar)

    They play acoustic and they actually want an electric accoustic as well. know one of those tuner things that you put on your guitar could be cool?

    Any other ideas?

    ITunes gift card. At that age I wanted to buy records or CDs all the time and didn't have the funds.

    You can't use them to purchase some things (tickets to a concert online, for instance) and you have to know exactly how much money is on the card to be able to use it. Mine was originally $25 and I don't know how much is left on it so when I went to use it to purchase a video game in-store I wasn't able to use it.
