I can’t believe I am saying this but the holidays and a New Year are pretty much already here. Maybe its just me, but I feel like this year has just flown right on by. Holiday shopping has already started or is even completed for some people. Do you still need gift ideas for tweens and teens?

When it comes to holiday gift giving in our house we are usually big proponents of giving more experience type of gifts. We love the idea of creating long-lasting memories together (family vacation, annual membership to a museum or zoo, movie tickets, sporting event tickets, etc.), versus traditional gifts like toys and games.

Even though my kids never really submit holiday wish lists, I have to admit I have started searching for a few cool holiday gift ideas, especially for my teen to open on Christmas.
