Is it better to buy a gift or give cash to teens for birthdays?

One thing’s for sure and that is that you can NEVER go wrong with money. It is nice to find something that fits the personality of the teen you are sending to, like music from their favorite band, a movie that they would like, etc.

I think for teens cash or a gift card is a great way to go, just because I remember when I was a teenager how much I shopped! My friends and I were always at the mall, and there was nothing better then actually being able to get something. On the other hand, I also remember when adults would give me gifts that I didn’t even know I wanted. Like a book or game that I had never been exposed to. It was an oppurtunity to expand my horizons. It really does depend on your teen, look at the activities they are involved in and base your decision on that.
