As hard as it can be living with an angst-ridden teenager, it's often harder trying to shop for one.
And if you're overwhelmed with the task of trying to find the perfect gift for the sarcastic, too-cool-for-school adolescent in your life, we've rounded up a couple of handy options for parents too tired to pretend they know what the young folk are buzzing about nowadays.
A video game is a no-brainer for the techy teen that you can't pry away from his or her console but we suggest Nintendo's handheld game, so your obsessive gamer can at least join the rest of the family as they gather round the fireplace—even if they roll their eyes the entire time!
For gals just starting to experiment with beauty products, we love Paul & Joe's cutesy kitty eye and cheek color holiday set, as well as Jenna Hipp's nail polish collection, which will satisfy just about every type of teenage lady with its selection of girly-girl pinks and Goth glam blacks.
Similarly, La Mer Collections' wrap watches come in a variety of styles—from neon to leopard print—and feature detachable charms that are just begging to be shared by a pair of inseparable BFFs!
