Teenage girls can be one of the hardest populations to shop for, particularly if that teenager is a long distance relative that is only seen once a year, or less. In this case, sometimes picking out a basic gift that every girl would love is a great idea. Whether that is a bath and body set or new knitting kits, they are sure to fall in love.
Personalised Beauty Basket
Making a beauty basket is often cheaper than purchasing one that is already made. Often, trial size peel off masks and facial washes can be found relatively cheap. Make sure to include body wash, body spray and a brand new loofah with some colour coordinating bubble bath. Anything that falls into the beauty category will make a great addition to the basket. Some perfect examples include: false eyelashes, make up, make up tools and brushes, trial size lotions, trial size shampoo and conditioner, and several different trial size body sprays. This universal gift is guaranteed to light up every girl’s eyes.
Most teenage girls love to get crafty. Helping them find a hobby that will love for years to come is the perfect gift. Knitting kits offer the ideal way for teenage girls to relax while they learn a new skill. Most people that learn to knit when they are young wind up loving it that much more as they grow older.
Knitting kits provide everything that is needed to get started on a project. Beginner knitting kits, such as ones for projects like making a pair of socks, are ideal for beginners.
This may sound a bit thoughtless, but, when all else fails, it is a great gift. Most people that have no idea what to get a person choose to give them a gift card to one of their favourite stores or the money that they would have spent on a gift. This allows them to buy something that they have always wanted, and will make a great gift.
For a more personalised touch, put the money or gift card inside of a card. Then, instead simply signing the card, include a heartfelt note that they will cherish for a long time.
Quality Time Together
Instead of buying a teenager a gift, simply schedule something for the two of you to do together. A day at the spa is a great idea. Knitting kits that allow the two of you to complete a project together are another great idea. Some other great ideas include: a shopping trip, a day at the mall, going out to their favourite restaurant for dinner or getting manicures and pedicures.
This will let them enjoy something that they love, such as a great manicure, while the two of you have something to bond over, making this one of the most priceless gifts.
Every teenage girl needs a purse to carry money or feminine things in, but most do not realise this until they get older. Giving a girl her first purse can be a special moment for both the giver and the receiver, and, as an added bonus, most teenagers are responsible enough to care for expensive bags, meaning that the giver will not regret the money spent on the new purse.
Giving gifts can be a bit complicated when it comes to teenage girls. Some may be a bit more girly than others, and the person buying the gift may have no idea what to get a long distance relative. Teenage girls are sure to love all of these gifts, whether it is for a holiday or a birthday.
