Your child is turning a teenager and it is a quite a special milestone. On his or her birthday, here are some interesting and useful gifts you can pick for your teen, which they will surely enjoy.

1. Camera

If your teen likes to take pictures, a camera would be a great gift for your kid. Encourage them to click pictures of their favourite things and moments and make her own scrapbook. An instant Polaroid camera is a good way to collect memories, which can even be pinned up on the wall later.

2. Board games

Find out your child’s favourite board game and gift it on his or her birthday. To encourage your child, take out some time from your busy schedule to play the game with him or her.

3. Smart watch

One way of encouraging your child to remain fit is by gifting the teen a Fitbit smart watch, which can monitor heart rate, sleep, physical activity and so on.
