The holidays are around the corner, which means Black Friday is right under our noses. For some, it's basically another holiday that falls in between the mix of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas. If that sounds familiar, and there's a teen in the picture, this list may help.

With the big "gifts" on kids lists being tech items that seem more expensive every year the way to save money on purchases is to get them while they're on sale. It doesn't happen to often, which is why the big day, Black Friday, is a prime time for folks to get the items they need at a lower price. Thankfully, tons of stores participate in this festive occasion, and many of them sell tech items. We're talking Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and more. Each offer markdowns on items like XBox consoles, cameras, ear buds, and Echo Dots.

Another cool thing about Black Friday, is that it's easy to know what the "masses" are interested in as retailers like to mark those popular items down. This is especially true for teens in general. Knowing what they're interested in is hard. It's even harder for ones with expensive taste. But that's where we come in. We rounded up the best tech deals out there on items we think teens will want. It takes all the guesswork out of the equation while still paying a good price for said items.

Also, the items are diverse in what they do or what they're for. Some items, like Amazon Alexa devices, are for helping make life a bit easier. Others, like the motor scooter, gaming laptop,  phone, and tablet make life more fun. Whatever is on teens' radars, parents who snag these deals will be heroes when the gift-giving season really is here. They'll be heroes to the teens who want All The Things, and they'll be heroes to themselves. Because if avoiding paying full price for a product is the goal (and with some items $1,000 or more, we understand), this is a good game plan. Parents of teens certainly need all the good deals they can find.
