Are you looking for a fun and unique gift for a tween or young adult? I have an eleven year old son that can be difficult to shop for, and I feel your pain! I have been struggling to find the right gift for him but I may have finally found the solution for me and for you. A metal detector ignites the curiosity in anyone, and this Fortune Finder Junior metal detector will work for all ages. carries this and several other metal detectors that will be perfect under the tree.

One of the things I like about this gift is that it works all year long, even for those of us who get practically buried in snow! My son can search the snow, sand or ground for hidden treasures and continue to find “gifts” for years to come. It could even come in handy if we lose something important! At under four pounds, it can be used by even my youngest child. The controls are easy to manage and it’s compact enough for easy storage.
