Teens are one of the hardest age groups to shop for – at least in my opinion. Gone are the days when a new doll or 99 cent Matchbox car could make them happy. Now their wish lists include more sophisticated and pricey “toys” like tablets and smart phones. The great news is that there are some really awesome tech gifts for your teens that cost under $100. Check out the tech teens are talking about – these items are available at your local Verizon store and VerizonWireless.com.
As member of a pretty cool team of influencers, I occasionally receive devices from Verizon. No additional compensation was provided for this blog post nor did I promise positive feedback. All opinions are my own. #VZWBuzz
Tracks Headphones by SOL REPUBLIC ($99/Sale Price: $49)
I own several different SOL REPUBLIC products including the Tracks headphones. They offer great sound quality and are built to be pretty resistant to wear and tear. I know teens may not be the most careful people with their headphones, so this sturdy option is a great choice.
Teens are always on the go, and these lightweight headphones give them the freedom they need to listen to their music anywhere. They can also use them with their phone to talk hands-free with the built-in mic.
This water and sand resistant Bluetooth speaker is perfect for the beach, the park or the backyard. Comes with a clip-on carabiner so your teen can easily take their tunes on-the-go. Syncs with up to 2 smartphones.
Robot toys are for kids and gamers of all ages. Teens can control Orbotix Ollie ($99), the app-controlled, battery-operated robot driven by adrenaline. Ollie is engineered for speed, programmed for tricks, and customized by the user.
And if it’s a smartphone your teen is hoping for, head to Verizon Wireless.
