Teens – always difficult to buy for, but so important to get it just right. So I was really excited when I had a mooch through EMP for the StarWars theme gift suggestions – there’s always some reliably top gift ideas for teens over on EMP, but this year the range is outstanding.
If you’re still looking for a little inspiration, a filler gift or that perfect extra something, keep scrolling.
I’ve pulled a list together of some of my top gift ideas for teens below (but there is plenty more to be found on EMP’s website so do go have a browse; whether it’s Peaky Blinders, Stranger Things, Harry Potter, Star Wars or Metallica, there’s bound to be something they’re into!).
This post contains affiliate links – you don’t pay any more, but I may earn a teensy smidge of commission (which frankly just helps my coffee habit). But I never recommend something to you I wouldn’t recommend to my sister. And yes, I do love my sister.
Top gift ideas for teens – Pusheen with Pizza Pillow
Every one loves Pusheen, and everyone wants a Pusheen pillow on their bed. Pusheen eating pizza? Yes, thank you, makes me feel my own pizza habit is a bit normal. Ish.
And being pusheen, you just know how velvety soft this pillow is…
Pusheen Pizza Pillow
£15 down to £12!
Top gift ideas for teens – Stranger things Teacup Mug
If your teen was a Stranger Things fan (show me a teen and I’ll show you a Stranger Things fan) then they’ll love this fab 80s-retro-styled giant teacup – with a secret Demogorgon hidden at the bottom of their drink.
Also, it’s currently 20% off – the Sranger Things Mug is reduced from £13 to under a tenner!
Top gift ideas for teens – Polyjuice Potion Desk Lamp
Okay, this is pretty cool – a glowing bottle of Polyjuice Potion. Admit it – you want one. I know, because we ALL want one – and at this price, I think we should all have one.
The Polyjuice Potion lamp is just under £20
Unicorn Mood Light
Pretty Lighting? Check.
Cute? Triple check.
It runs on 3 AAA batteries, so there’s no need for it to be near a plug – and let’s face it, who wouldn’t want a colour changing mood unicorn gently glowing in their bedroom?
The Colour-changing Unicorn Mood Light also happens to be under £10. SOLD!
Marauder’s Map Bedlinen
I solemnly swear that the Marauder’s Map bedlinen from Harry Potter injects a burst of magic into your bedroom. This reversible bedding is printed all-over and the pillow case features the writing “I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good”. 100% cotton.
Denim Satchel Messenger Bag
No merch tie ins, this is just a super-practical, good looking bag for school or college. And not only does the new Park Avenue shoulder bag by Brandit have enough space for everything with load sof compartments, it also has a special strap on the back which means you can thread your belt through it and wear it hands-free on your belt for gigs and festivals. Genius.
Buy this Park Avenue Gig Messenger Bag for £33
Gorgeous Frozen II Pyjamas
We saw Frozen II this week – and totally fell in love with it. Maybe the tunes aren’t quite so catchy, but it’s sharper, darker, deeper and more beautiful than ever. And these pyjamas are just as good – not your average Disney Princess fare, they’re are older, cooler and frankly I want some.
Frozen II Adult Pyjamas are £5 off right now, and can be yours for £23.
The perfect gaming merch – stylish and subtle, with enough of a nod to the game that a fellow fan will see it and know. The Legend of Zelda wristwatch has the Zelda logo on the watch face, and comes in a Legend of Zelda box.
The Zelda watch is £30.
IT Chapter 2 – Collector’s Edition Funko Pop!
We I know – this one’s horrible. but if you have a Horror fan, then this Collector’s Edition It Chapter Two Funko Pop! boxed set is sure to be a hit.
Chapter 2 – Collector’s Edition Vinyl Figure is £25
Harry Potter Chibi Socks
When in doubt, go socks, right?
Am a bit in love with these – Chibi Harry Potter trainer socks, complete with Harry, Ron, Hermione & Dobby :)
Total bargain – Chibi Harry Potter socks set is £9.
