When it comes to buying gifts for kids, gifts for teens have a reputation of being especially hard. But savvy shoppers know a secret: teens are actually the most fun to buy gifts for. That’s because they haven’t yet aged into wanting more adult, practical presents, so there’s still a huge fun factor to what they want. But they’re also old enough to handle more sophisticated tech, they have more opinions about how they want to dress up their rooms according to their own personal styles and they have their own interest in hobbies, movies and TV to keep things interesting.

But while that opens up many avenues for gift ideas, there’s still the matter of figuring out what’s worth the money. The Good Housekeeping Institute tests all kinds of products throughout the year, covering everything from bikes and drones to laptops and game consoles. It also tests tons of toys to determine the annual Good Housekeeping Best Toy Award winners. The engineers in the labs test for safety, durability and ease of use, meaning big-ticket gifts will last as long as your teens’ interest in them. Then we found more best-sellers, editor’s picks and other little, trendy items to keep things fun. When we put it all together, these were the best gifts to buy 14-year-old boy and girls in 2022.

How we chose the best gifts for 14-year-olds

This article pulls research and testing from various Labs in the Good Housekeeping Institute, which evaluates products including toys, games, electronics, scooters, bikes and drones. In this story, for any products that have been tested by the GH Institute, there’s a link to an article where you can find more information about the testing process and results.

The gifts included here that have not been evaluated in the Labs are popular products from trusted brands with great reviews from purchasers, as well as editors’ favorites. The list was then vetted by Good Housekeeping editors, who, after years of curating gift guides and keeping track of trends, are deeply familiar with what’s popular for 2022 as well as what GH readers have loved in the past.

Why trust Good Housekeeping?

For decades, the Good Housekeeping Institute has provided expert reviews and advice on everything parents and children love, including STEM toys, educational toys, sensory toys, board games and outdoor toys.

While not all of the selects on this list have been tested by our experts, Marisa LaScala, Good Housekeeping‘s senior parenting and relationships editor, has scoured the internet and spoken with tweens and teens for the other top-picks. Marisa has covered all aspects of the world of parenting, from the postpartum years through the empty nests, since 2015, and she’s pitched in with Good Housekeeping‘s toy coverage since 2018. She lives in New York City with her husband and daughter, who are both avid toy collectors.
