15 Generation Z Gift Ideas for The Holidays That Will Make You the Cool Mom
Generation Z Gift Ideas
It really depends on who you ask or which article you’re reading, but for the sake of this post…Generation Z is currently age 12-26. That’s a wide range that can be pretty difficult to shop for, right?! Teenagers are notoriously picky, have grown past the toy stage, and have firm opinions on what they want. While 20-somethings are going through life changes that means they might want/need practical gifts (changes like college, graduating, new house, new job, etc.). Whether you have a teen or a 20-something on your list, these gifts are sure to please and are fun, trendy, and will definitely make you the cool mom (or aunt or grandmother).

Laneige lip masks are HUGE with Gen Z right now thanks to TikTok! This set has 5 of their mini-sized lip sleeping masks so they can try them all…

Fear of God has quickly become a popular brand after collaborating with big names like Adidas, Nike, and Converse. Their Essentials line has great, high-quality basics with their signature Essentials logo for the Gen Z’er on your list that loves the look of stylish streetwear. This sweatshirt is a nice, cool basic that has matching sweatpants (also linked).
If there’s one thing we know about Gen Z, it’s that they like to have items that make them feel unique and different. This retro-looking Bluetooth keyboard will do just that! Plus, it comes in 10 other colors too.
I would have LOVED something like this when I was younger. It’s a 3D printing pen so you can literally watch your creativity come to life! SO cool! Make sure you get the pen filament refill too so that the fun doesn’t run out too soon…
Roller skates are one of the top gifts for teen girls, and skateboards are one of the top gifts for boys (and girls too if she likes to shred). The coolest thing about this skateboard? It’s electric! So they can really add some speed (up to 10 mph). It’s controlled by a handheld remote that they can adjust to pick their favorite cruising speed.
