Best Gifts for High Schoolers

Microsoft has gifts that make everyone happy and the Microsoft store can help you get all of the perfect gifts into the hands of your family members this holiday season. You want to give your family gifts they’ll love, right? I know that for me, this year, I can get all of my shopping done at the Microsoft store and the Microsoft Holiday Gift Guide gives me a great place to start.

From Xbox to Surface Pro 3 to Windows Phone, the Microsoft store has what you’re looking for. You can make someone’s holiday brighter this year and get all the most sought after technology on everyone’s wishlist with Microsoft’s Holiday Gift Guide. Whether you’re shopping for busy professionals, multitasking teens, gamers, designers, social media mavens, technology newbies, or early adopters, Microsoft’s Holiday Gift Guide makes finding the perfect gift simple.

What your teen really wants

This is a tough topic to tackle. Teens want it all, don't they? I was a teen once and that didn't stop me from asking for the moon for Christmas each year. Luckily my parents were great about managing my expectations, which is what I do with my kids today. However, today's kids are much more tech savvy, so the latest in fabulous technology would be a welcome gift for any teenager. I would have to say that the top teen (and most likely tween) gift this year has got to be the Surface Pro 3. Who doesn't want one?

Pro Tip: Mom and Dad would also like one as well. Hint. Hint.

The Surface Pro 3 will quench your teen's love for technology while allowing them a certain amount of productivity as well. If they choose! This versatile tablet/laptop eliminates the need for other gadgets. I can think of three things that I could ditch if I had the Surface Pro 3.


Microsoft Store Beats Solo HD On-Ear Headphones (Drenched in Red)Headphones are also a big gift for teens, because let's face it, who wants to hear whatever music your teen is listening to? Unless it's the ‘best of the 80's’, they need headphones.

Microsoft Store GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition

For those teens who enjoy adventure and/or travel, the GoPro should be top on your list. The incredible durable video camera can trek with you through the desert or fly down the ski slopes capturing your every move.

Microsoft Store Beats Pill 2.0 Wireless Speaker with Bluetooth (Black)

There may be times when your teen wants to share his or her music. When that happens, first take a deep breath. Next, take another deep breath and finally, listen. Don't become your parents just yet. If you’re going to subject yourself to your teen’s favorite tunes, this is the speaker that you want to use. This Beats Pill 2.0 Wireless Speaker would pair as a perfect gift with the Beats Solo HD On-Ear Headphones.

For me, the Tweens are the easiest to shop for. I simply get them whatever my husband wants. He loves to play with the kid’s tech things almost as much as they do. Earbuds always top our list because these seem to get lost more than anything else.

Microsoft Jawbone MINI JAMBOX (Green Dot)

We had to throw a speaker in there for the Tweens. The fun part about this Jawbone MINI JAMBOX is they can pick their favorite color and still get a good quality sound from it. We love ours.

Microsoft Store Kinect for Xbox 360Do your kids have the Kinect for Xbox 360? If not, get it for them. The Kinect encourages team play and the kids get lots of exercise. They love it.


Microsoft Store Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Italia Racing Wheel for Xbox 360

You have to pass them the wheel someday, right? Just do what we did and make certain you get them the Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Italia Racing Wheel for Xbox 360 because they will be driving better than you in no time.

Microsoft Store Minecraft for Xbox One

My kids have Minecraft on their tablets and computers. Now we can give it to them on the Xbox One to truly make us a Minecraft family!

    The GoPro Hero would be top on my list of cameras to try out. I also would love some Minecraft stuff for my kids.

  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    My boys both need new headphones! I think Santa is bringing them some.

  3. I want that gopro camera! I think that is awesome! I have wanted one for months now!

  4. Forget the teens! I want my own Surface Pro 3!

  5. I think the over the ear headphones are my top pick. I know all of us in the house would love those.

  6. Daisy

    My husband and son both want an XBox 360. Let’s hope that Santa brings them one! They also love headphones like you have on your list.

  7. Oh the XBox, we got the this for our boys for Christmas, Shhh don;t tell!

  8. The mini jambox looks really cool. I love all the fun color options.

  9. My brothers LOVE wireless headphones- makes being in the same room more bearable for them 😉 I think I need to get myself a wireless speaker- I’m in need of some tunes in my kitchen!

  10. I only have my friends teen son to buy for and you’ve just helped me a ton! Having younger girls I was at such a loss!

  11. Great ideas! This age group is by far the hardest to shop for!

  12. What awesome gift ideas! That surface pro is calling my name!

  13. Wow these are some great gift ideas! I think the wireless speaker is a must have for tweens and teens who have iPods or phones.

  14. I would want the ear phones for my self. Great list its hard to believe Christmas is next week.

  15. These are great ideas. My daughter is a teen and she has been wanting those Beats headphones for some time now.

  16. Ann Bacciaglia

    My daughter wants a tablet for Christmas. I would love the portable speaker under my tree.

  17. One of my purchases just so happens to be a pair of headphones this year. The Surface 3 would make a great gift too though.

  18. I don’t have a teen yet, but I would love to have any of these great gifts for myself!

  19. I am hoping for an xbox under our tree as well. As far as music goes, luckily my oldest has inherited my taste in music and I’m working on the rest of them so we will get more use out of the pill than the headphones.

  20. This is a great list of ideas, my tween wants a laptop or something to be able to keep up with her blog more. Sadly, with my business laptop being only PC in home she hasn’t’ been able to steal it as often to keep up with her blog. Hoping to get her something techy this Christmas, especially since she wants it for school and blogging, must encourage that!

  21. My kids are huge Minecraft fans, so they would like the game for their Xbox

  22. The Surface Pro 3 and the GoPro! Those are amazing gifts any techie would love.
