It’s hard to shop for tweens anyway, not to mention when some options are being canceled due to pre-Christmas delivery requirements.

Sports and outdoors
Our absolute favorite: We love the style and function of these stylish kicks. The Metcon 5 workout shoes come in men’s and women’s sizes, so there’s a pair for any active teen! They’re for running, hiking, lifting weights, walking across town — all types (and levels) of physical activity.
Our absolute favorite: This leather backpack is the pinnacle of minimalist tween style. The embellished bow, gold accents, leather materials and petite size are all in! Not only is it cute, but it’s very versatile. Whether you’re at school, traveling, shopping, biking or going out to eat, this backpack is sure to be a hit. Bonus: It comes in 18 different colors!
Beauty and wellness
Our absolute favorite: Shower steamers are best described as the shower version of a bath bomb. These tablets release soothing essential oils and therapeutic steam for the perfect spa retreat, right in the shower! Choose from a variety of scents to find the fragrance your child needs most.
Our absolute favorite: If you’re lucky enough to have a teenage child who cooks selfishly, you’ll want to support this hobby for as long as you can! This mini waffle maker is a great starting point for aspiring chefs, because it’s safe, easy to clean and use, and incredibly fun!
Our absolute favorite: Everyone will laugh at this burrito blanket (which happens to be super soft, by the way). If burritos aren’t your teen’s cup of tea, there are different types of pizza, bagels, and waffles — all of which look shockingly realistic. Yum!
