Not on the High Street – their story
’10 years ago, from around a little kitchen table, came a big idea that would inspire the nation — to bring together the most unique, stylish and never-before-seen products that are hard to find anywhere else.
That’s why we’re home to more than 5,000 of the UK’s best small creative businesses that we’re proud to call our Partners, here to do what they do best — surprise us with thoughtful gifts, original homeware, unforgettable experiences and more’.
So we decided to scour their website and find our personal favourite best teen gifts for Christmas.
What do you buy? 10 of the best teen gifts from N.O.T.H
1. Mobile Phone Bungee
The most brilliant gadget for helping teens never lose their phones out of their pockets or bags. As a mum of three teens and above this is one of THE best teen gifts ever! Simply attach the bungee to something like a a belt loop or handbag strap so they can still use it but it can’t be dropped or taken.

2. Personalised ‘Dreaming of…’ Mask
We love these! My daughters permanently have a crush on someone or something. Just reveal the object of affection – a celebrity, other half, a big slice of cake or Dan from college – and they can be dreaming of that every night!

4. Leather Personalised Clasp Bracelet
We love this personalised plaited leather and stainless steel bracelet. It says it is for teenage boys but we know plenty of girls who would also adore this so very much unisex. The personalisation is free as is the gift box so it makes a really special gift.

5. Make your own concrete planter
Concrete planters and succulents are very now and apparently, you can never have too many! The twist with this gift is that you have to make your own planter. The kit contains everything you are going to need. Get making!
6. Chill pill bath bombs
These ‘pill’ shaped bath bombs do exactly what they say on the tin. Made with allergen-free fragrance makes them skin-friendly. So, take a chill pill and enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub! One of our best teen gifts for winter.
7. Flavoured pork crackling
What do you buy someone who LOVES pork scratchings? These aren’t your ordinary pork crackling, they are award-winning, doubled cooked pork crackling! They are available in different flavours such as salt ‘n’ vinegar and black pepper and sea salt. They are presented in a 300g plastic gift jar. The perfect teen gift! (Links on individual images)
8. Botanical infusion bags
Think tea bags for gin! Simply drop an infusion bag (10 flavours to choose from) into your glass of gin, wait a few minutes and add the tonic. Pimp your gin!
9. Life-sized chocolate snowball and giant sprout
These should keep them quiet for a while! The life-sized snowball is made from white chocolate and is filled with chocolate beans. Whilst the giant sprout contains four baby, cream-filled chocolate sprouts. Yum. (Links on individual images)
