Finding good, little presents for teenage girls that are decent enough to tear them away from their iPads/mobiles/boyfriends can be a little difficult. However, with so many websites offering great ideas for even the most alternative tastes, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home anymore to find those little extra presents to make her smile on Christmas day.
We’ve put together a list of some of our favourites from across the web to make your life even easier, along with the types of teenage girl they’d be perfect for.
The beauty queen
If the teenage girl you’re buying for is a typical one, she’s no doubt obsessed with the latest make-up, bath accessories and hair styling stuff. Appeal to her feminine side with little beauty items, and if you’re worried about her growing older than her years, stick to something light-hearted but sweet, like a love lip balm gift card. You can click here to find those, along with loads of other xmas gift ideas for her.
The tech-savvy socialite
If she’s surgically attached to her phone like almost all teenagers, she’d more than likely really appreciate a cute phone case for her favourite gadget. Or, if she’s really into her iPod, a set of funky earphones are a great choice, and can be found almost anywhere these days. Kindle covers are also a great idea to make her kindle more personal, as well as protected from any accidents.
Anything chocolate is generally a winner with most people, let alone teenage girls. Take advantage of the novelty chocolates available at this time of year, I mean, how cute are these chocolate penguins?! You can even buy chocolate pizza now, which would be any chocolate-lover’s dream come true.
The tight-lipped teen
If your teenage girl recipient tends to keep most aspects of her life a secret, then what could be a better gift than her own special diary? Paperchase have some lovely diaries, and who knows, if it ends up turning into a novel when she’s older, you just might find yourself in her acknowledgments!
The ultimate princess
If she’s super picky and a bit of a nightmare to buy for, go for something classic that never fails. For example, a gorgeous photo frame with a picture in of her and all her friends is sure to go down well, as is an engraved compact mirror with her name on. Jewellery is always a really good option for girlie girls, and as costume jewellery seems to be increasing in quality, it’s also great for the purse too.
The book worm
If she loves nothing more than settling down with the latest best seller, or even something a little different, a new book or something book-related is a sure win. If you wouldn’t know where to start with her book choices, you could get her a mug and hot chocolate set, and say it’s an accompaniment to a night in with her favourite read, which she’s bound to appreciate in the wintery nights.
I love Christmas shopping – how about you?
