Teen Holiday Wish List: 75 Teen and Preteen Stocking Stuffers & Gift Ideas Beyond Cash and Gift Cards

When my children were younger, their wish lists were both detailed and extensive. Now that they are 10 and 13, however, their response to the question, "What would you like for Christmas" is often "Money," and/or "I don't know." I can appreciate that they don't want to ask for much, and that they aren't over the top materialistic, but I do want to give them gifts they will appreciate, and I like to give something besides the often requested Christmas cash.  Following is our pre-teen and teen approved list of gifts in all price ranges ideas that will hopefully inspire. (Click either the photos or links for shopping info.)
