Not Your Ordinary Christmas Gifts for Teens

I have seen some pretty off the wall Christmas gifts in my time. My family has a tradition of giving gag gifts and uncommon items to one another; especially when it comes to Christmas gifts for teens, and let me tell you- when you get a bunch of us together to exchange gifts at Christmastime, you had better be prepared to laugh; and sometimes hope that you are not on the receiving end. It all started back when I was a teenager. I had been getting a little bit big for my britches if you know what I mean, and I hadn’t been behaving very well. It wasn’t anything serious or anything; just random bad behavior I guess. Well my mom had enough, and with Christmas creeping closer, she came up with an idea to get my attention.

My family never put any Christmas gifts under the tree until the night of Christmas Eve, so we never knew who was getting which gifts until Christmas morning. It was so funny to see us scurrying around in the middle of the night trying not to get caught as we placed the gifts under the tree. Well, this particular year, as I approached the Christmas tree I knew immediately something was wrong. While everyone else had stockings that were overflowing with treats, mine hung empty from the mantle. As the gifts were passed out I couldn’t believe that I had received only one. Everyone’s eyes were upon me as I opened my single, lonely gift, and laughter filled the air when I pulled out a clear bag filled with coal!

Although my “real” gifts were brought to me once everything calmed down, believe me- that was enough to open my eyes and my behavior improved significantly. We had so much fun that Christmas that we all started to compete with each other over who could come up with the funniest, most off the wall Christmas gifts each year, and the tradition has continued every since.
