Do you have trouble choosing gifts for your teens? I am at the point of giving up purchasing gifts at all. It’s exhausting, and I have a hard time finding anything they will like. I’m ready to give them a gift card and send them to the store. But, that wouldn’t be a very thoughtful Christmas gift.
This year I’m trying, once again, to come up with something that will not only be well-received but might actually inspire my kids. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) gifts are some of the most difficult to choose, especially ones that will make your moody teenager smile. These are 10 of the best STEM gifts to inspire your teen we could find.

Hi, I’m Dachelle. I’m a homeschooling mom of 3 in the South. I love chocolate and have been known to hide it from my children. I can often be found reading a good book (or even sometimes just an okay book) and enjoying a jar of Nutella — don’t judge. I blog, here, at HideTheChocolate.com when I’m not creating book clubs and making lists…lots and lots of lists (it’s an addiction). Learn more…
