When kids are little, they're so much easier to please gift-wise. A small toy with wheels or a cute face and voila! - you're the best human on the planet.
Teens? Not so much. If it's not the latest iPhone, XBox, Playstation, or concert tickets, which can run into the hundreds and even thousands of dollars, well they're just not going to get excited.
What to buy for teens when you're on a budget is a vexing dilemma for many of us, but there is help at hand.
The incredible brains trust over at Kmart Mums Australia, a haven for reinventing the wallet-friendly, appealing and hack-worthy products at Kmart, have come up with THE next teen gift sensation, and it could cost you as little as $20 complete.
Simply buy a $10 shadow box frame and fill it with goodies all teens love, like chocolate, lollies, cash, vouchers, chips and it'll be back to the good old days of being the favourite auntie, just like when they were little. People are giving these for birthdays, Christmas, and even for an HSC survival kit scenario.
