There’s no need to dread gift shopping for teenagers. We know, we know. Between their often highly specific tastes and the ever-whirling whims of fashion, it can feel like a minefield. But be not afraid, for the independent artists on the Redbubble marketplace are constantly creating designs based on trending teenage topics. (Trending is still a thing people say, right?)
We’re talking the latest meme fodder. The freshest weird styles currently dazzling teen girls and boys and confounding their grownups. The obscure yet adorable animals taking the Internet by storm this week. You may have to pay close attention and ask a few discreet questions to nail down exactly what your particular teenager is into during this particular birthday, Christmas, or graduation season. But whatever it is, you can be sure the artists on Redbubble got there first.
Pro tip: if you sort by “trending”, you can see which stickers, phone cases, posters, stationery, and other teen-favorite accessories are topping the sales charts right this minute. Even if you don’t nail it 100%, the teenage recipient will appreciate that you put effort into picking out a personal gift that didn’t come from a big chain store. And you might just discover that shopping for teens can be, believe it or not, fun.
