gifts for teenagers–12 days of christmas crafting round up

12daysofcrhistmascraftingbuttonsmallTeenagers can be difficult to buy for and even more difficult to craft for (especially boys) and I have to admit that collecting ideas especially for teenagers was somewhat difficult.

    I loved these ideas! But as a teenager (16) I’m a little offended that most crafts designated just for us are all about cell phones and lap tops. We are just as diverse as adults and little children. I would love to see creative designs. Art satchels? Maybe a beginners sewing kit? I would love to see more art related ideas(:

      LOL! Good call! Must be starting to show my age. Didn’t mean to stereotype – I can relate to what you’re saying although I was far from your typical teenager!!

      I think there are a couple of non-tech related items in the round up – will keep your comment in mind for the next round up.
