Stoned Vibes Eyeshadow Palette
Odds are she’s already in love with Urban Decay. This 12-pan gemstone-inspired eye shadow palette will literally add sparkle to her eyes. The marbleized shimmers and pigmented mattes are great for creating looks long after the holidays.
Whether she’s chillin’ in her dorm room or holed-up in her room at home, your teen is going to love this mini portable projector. She can project all her favorite streaming channels by simply plugging her phone or laptop into the device’s USB port.
Wireless headphones are always a solid gift if you know your teen has been rocking an old, corded pair. Bonus points: Gen Z loves Beats by Dr. Dre, so with 8 different colors to choose from, how can you go wrong?
Now he doesn’t have to struggle with keeping his headphones in his ears while listening to music and keeping his head warm. These headphones are built right into this stylish beanie and are perfect for hands-free phone calls.
This drone comes in a protective, ball-shaped frame, so it’ll survive those bumps that less-than-careful teen boys put their toys through. Features include a 6-axis gyroscope and slow-fast speed modes.
If he’s addicted to gaming (which teen boy isn’t?), get him the Nintendo Switch Lite, designed for handheld play. It’s a little pricey, but still much less than the full Nintendo Switch, which comes with both handheld and console modes of play.
Help him trick out his look with pro-looking shades. For gaming teens who stay up online late into the night, these blue light blocking glasses will protect their eyes and help them get to sleep faster.
