Friday Favorites–Gifts for Teens

The only people on the planet who are more difficult to craft for than men are teens.  If you’ve got a male teen, you’re nodding your head right now.  Fortunately, there are some good suggestions out there…and not one of them runs on batteries or has a USB connector.

Not often, but once in a while a teenager has a little cash.  This Capri Sun Wallet from Instructables user gwebisu would be the perfect place to keep it.
