Tech Savvy Gift Guide for Teens

Welcome to the 1st Annual Tech Savvy Homeschool Gift Guide. These toys and gifts are ones that I either have (***) or would buy for my sons personally. This list includes a variety of interests and price points. My son helped me with many of the selections so you are getting it straight from the horses mouth! It does not include any video games because we do not own any gaming systems so I don’t have much of an opinion on different ones.

Check out the Tech Savvy Gift Guide for Kids for even more great ideas!

Note: The prices are from Amazon unless otherwise noted (as of November 2018). I am an Amazon Affiliate and if you click the picture of the toy to make your purchase, I receive a very small percentage of the sale, which helps fund our homeschool. Just FYI!
