holidays, gifts, presents, parent gifts, Holiday season is fast approaching and a few of our readers asked me to put together a few posts on teen-parent essentials. Our teen interns have been debating on good parent gifts. Here is a list for some of our teen readers if you are having trouble thinking about what to get your parents. Here are a few items that every parent should have in their home–these also make great and unique gift ideas!

1. Noise Canceling Headphones

If you have growing teenagers, you need to have something to block out the sound of video games, flute practice and pop music.

2. Fridge Board

It can be a little crazy trying to manage everyone’s schedules. You must have a central calendar for the family!

3. A Top Parenting Book

4. A Flip Camera

As kids get older, they will be off to college before you know it. Here is a great way to capture those memories.

5. Back Massager

Parents get so tired and at the end of the day they would love a massage!

Any other suggestions? Parents, what do you want from your teens?¬†And duh you should have our latest parenting book from the teen perspective: Do I Get My Allowance Before or After I’m Grounded?
