CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- It's that time of year again when all the little kids scream and the teenagers beg for new gadgets, toys and more. Here is a guide to let you know of some hot items for younger kids and teens this Christmas!

Young girls

Have a younger sister or relative who wants to be like Katniss Everdeen? Get her the Nerf Rebelle HeartBreaker Bow, which comes with five beautifully-designed foam and plastic Nerf bullets. (You also can purchase more.) The bow fires up to 75 feet for all the battles she will be entering. You can find this item at Walmart, Amazon, Toys R Us, Kmart and Target for approximately $20.

Young boys

For the young boys who love Iron Man, there is a hot new toy for them: flying RC Iron Man. Iron Man is 19 inches tall and comes with a remote to guide him through the skies, where he can soar up to 300 feet! He has between six and eight minutes of flying time and can be found at Walmart, Amazon, Target and Toys R Us for $59.97-$69.99.

Teen guys

Guys can be hard to shop for, so an easy and ready-to-go present is a gift card from their favorite store, restaurant or Charleston Town Center. Gift cards are easy to load and can be for almost any amount you want.

Another easy present is an accessory for their phone or car. There are plenty of options to chose from in all price ranges, and you can quickly pick these presents up at any major retailer.

Teen girls

Some guys get confused on what to get girls for Christmas, but shopping for them doesn't have to be hard. Girls would also enjoy gift cards from their favorite locations or phone accessories. One idea is a customized phone case.

You could also make a personal gift such as a basket with her favorite candies, movies and little toys. Customized clothing would also be appreciated. You can get as elaborate as your budget will allow.

If you know her favorite band or artist and they happen to be on tour, you can purchase tickets to a nearby show. Be aware that this will be a pricier gift, especially if you buy a pair of tickets so you can enjoy the concert together.

Christmas is a very fun time for everyone. Don't let buying presents for others stress you out too much. The easiest way to figure out what to purchase is to ask people about items they like and don't like, so you know to look for and what to avoid.

Happy holidays, and good luck shopping!
