Teens (22)      Gifts (3)      Technologies (1)     
As most adults will agree, pleasing a teenager is akin to winning the lottery, rare and a total surprise. So when it comes to shopping for the teenager (s) in your life, the feelings of dread and apprehension are understandable as you find it increasingly difficult to grasp your teenager’s changing needs and wants. While it is easy to guess that most teenagers want the latest technology devices, you will probably still get the gift wrong because the color or the brand is not what your teen had in mind. Well, you can stop worrying about picking out a cool gadget that your teen will love. Until the old adage “this too shall pass” becomes evident in your household, here are five gadgets that will have that picky teen calling you “the gift guru.”
