Teenagers can be tough to shop for sometimes, especially around the holidays. However, Lego Sets are perfect for teens of all ages. Lego sets not only offer a wide variety of themes, ranging from Marvel, Star Wars Technic, and much more, but they also offer a variety of age ranges. Lego Sets with a high range tend to be more difficult to build and take longer as well. These are perfect for teenagers, and from experience, I can say they are really fun to build. Here is 11 Lego Sets for a Lego Gift Guide for Teens!

Lego Whitehouse

The Lego Architecture sets are perfect for builders who are willing to face both difficult and long building processes. The Architecture sets take about 8 hours to build, and some parts are quite difficult. In my experience with building this set, it took me about 8 hours to build, but it was extremely fun and entertaining. The set itself is cool, and it contains a lot of detail as well. It’s perfect for anyone interested in architecture and Legos, or anyone looking to burn some time building a cool set.

Lego Technic Mclaren

Lego not only offers sets for film and TV show enthusiasts, but car enthusiasts as well! The Lego Technic Mclaren Senna is the perfect set for people looking to build an awesome Lego set that’s both detailed and fun to build. It’s a fairly simple and quick build, but the result is just like the real car.

Lego Technic Dodge Charger

Are you a fan of the Fast and Furious franchise? The Lego Technic Dodge Charger is a great gift for both Lego enthusiasts, and Fast and Furious lovers! The car features an 8-cylinder engine that moves when you move the car and a wheelie stand. It’s over 1000 pieces, so it’s a fairly long build, and it’s slightly more difficult than the McLaren. However, this Lego set is worth it if you like Fast and Furious. I own this set, and it’s worth it to buy.

Lego Star Wars Executor Super Star Destroyer

This set is a fairly new release, but it does not disappoint. For those who are fans of the recent Star Wars movies, the Executor set is perfect for you! This set leaves out no detail, despite its miniature size. It contains over 600 pieces and is a tough build. The set itself features the main Star Destroyer, the Executor, as well as some mini Star Destroyers attached to it. Its smaller size also makes it perfect for display.

Emperor's Throne Room Diorama

Another Star Wars set, but this one’s a classic. With this set, you can recreate the iconic throne room scene from Star Wars’ Return of the Jedi. The set features both Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Emperor Palpatine. The set itself recreates the scene immaculately, leaving out no detail. It’s just over 800 pieces and is a fairly hard set to build. However, it’s perfect for display, or even to play with as well.

Chevrolet Camaro Z28

Another set for car enthusiasts! This set perfectly recreates the iconic look of the Chevrolet Camaro Z28. What I love about this set is that you can change out the look of the car. The set contains extra pieces so you can change the color of the racing stripes, and interior, and even make it into a convertible. It is perhaps one of the most customizable Lego sets released! With over 1400 pieces, it is a difficult build, with some intricate steps. Despite its difficulty, the set itself is quite fun to build, and it’s an awesome set to display or even play with!

Hogwarts Castle and Grounds

Calling all Harry Potter fans! This Harry Potter Lego set perfectly replicates the details of the Wizarding School from Harry Potter; Hogwarts. Featuring almost 3000 pieces, it’s quite a long build, but it’s fairly easy. It features the entire castle, the Durmstrang Ship, and a gold Merlin character. It’s the perfect gift for any teenage fan of Harry Potter!

Captain America’s Shield

Finally, the Marvel sets! For any fan of Marvel’s, the Avengers, this set is perfect for you! This set allows you to build Captain Rogers’s Vibranium shield. With over 3000 pieces, it’s fairly difficult to build. However, it makes an awesome display item, and it even features a plaque on the bottom of the stand. The shield measures up to about one and a half feet long, and one and a half feet wide, so it’s fairly large.

Lego Ideas Fender Stratocaster

This Lego set is an awesome gift for any teenager who plays guitar, or is a musician! The Lego Fender Stratocaster replicates the iconic guitar that artists such as Jimi Hendrix and David Gilmour of Pink Floyd used. It also features a removable body so you can change the color of the guitar from red to black. It makes a great display item and is fairly simple to build.

Statue of Liberty

Coming in at number ten, we have the Statue of Liberty! This iconic statue is brought to life in this Lego Ideas Set. With over 1600 pieces, it’s a fairly large set, and it features many small details that are seen on the statue itself. Standing at about 17 inches tall, and 5 inches wide, it’s a great display item for both home and office. It requires an intermediate building skill and has a medium-long building time.

 The Lord of The Rings: Rivendell

Perhaps one of the coolest Lego sets in all of existence (in my opinion), is the Lord of the Rings: Rivendell set. With over 6000 pieces, it is an extremely advanced set, and the building time is extremely long. However, it’s one of the most detailed Lord of the Rings sets, and it features 15 minifigures. While it’s a bit on the pricey side, it’s worth it if you, or your teenager, is a Lord of the Rings fan.
