These unisex shoes are the trainer of the moment, and an ideal present purchase when it comes to impressing a stylish teen. Available in a selection of shades including the staple white, this comfy footwear buy offers a nostalgic nod to the nineties. A remake of a pair first launched in 1989, they have a cushioned sole and upper that offers support, whether the person wearing them is walking miles or heading into town.
Teens can be notoriously tricky to buy gifts for, with trends changing all the time and individual tastes differing too. But, whether they’re 13 or 19, they still enjoy the magic of unwrapping a special present.
Should the person you’re browsing for be into beauty, tech, fashion, stationery, jewellery or Lego, one thing’s for certain – there’s not a naff present in sight within our round-up. And that’s because we asked a selection of teenagers to give us their honest opinion about what they’d like to receive.
We’ve got a candle making set from an independent business for craft and home fragrance fans, a skincare buy from TikTok-trending brand Rhode and Anker soundcore headphones which have just launched to keep you ahead of the gifting game. Plus, you’ll also find a Papier desk organiser for stationery aficionados, a sleek water bottle should you want a practical purchase, and an Oodie that they can snuggle up in.
