Struggling to find a decent gift for that fussy teenage relative of yours? Christmas shouldn’t be about presents, it’s the thought that counts, blah – blah – blah. We all know that’s only half true.
When it comes to getting the right gift for that rather demanding member of your family, it’s best to keep it relatively safe while steering clear of those monotonous shopping vouchers. Be creative, but don’t overdo it. She won’t be impressed by your inventiveness just because you decide to get her an ugly neon sweater that is supposed to be at the height of fashion. Unfortunately, you don’t get points for being spontaneous.
But not to worry, for we are here to take the load off – or at least a couple of kilograms – with 6 Unforgettable Christmas Gift Ideas Every Teenage Girl Will Love (that you failed to think of yourself)…
For stressed-out teens, relaxing lighting can do wonders for their mood and are also a nice addition to any bedroom. Avoid reading lamps and go for something with a warmer glow. This will help them de-stress before bed in preparation for a good night’s sleep. Be colourful with this pink lotus lamp by Kirsty Shaw, or choose something personalised like this little moon light by Lisa Angel. Also, nothing says ‘relax’ like one of these salt lamps from Glow Himalayan.
Whether chunky or thin, small or large, adorned or unadorned, hoops are the go-to accessory. Instead of buying her basic hoop earrings made of alloys or stainless steel, why not buy her a pair made of sterling silver, or even gold plated silver? Fine metal earrings won’t break the bank or turn her ears green, and more importantly, will last a whole lot longer than those made with substandard metals. Etsy stores like Seol Gold are great for gold plated hoops while 81stgeneration has an array of eclectic silver earrings including these pure silver Karen Hill Tribe spiral earrings. Plus, we have an amazing range of hoop earrings on our own website ;).
Unlike clothes, jewellery boxes can last forever. You can find hundreds of unique jewellery boxes handmade by independent owners, so the options are endless. For something with a sentimental touch, opt for this large wooden box by Warner’s End. And for something eye-catching, this intricately hand-painted box by PresentCompanyBH will go down a treat.
Good news! There’s no need to choose between getting her something she needs and getting her something she wants - a good quality bag is both. Real leather bags like this shoulder-bag from 81stgeneration (see picture) have that classic look and will last decades, but if you want to steer away from animal-made products, we love this vibrant red backpack from Urban Outfitters.
Two or three stacking rings make an ideal gift for any teen-girl, and the best part is you can mix and match to your heart's content. Go for adorned rings with her favourite colour (like this unusual blue druzy ring by CuriousOwlShop), a birthstone or even a meaningful symbol – this stunning set of 3 rings by BeaMadeThis does the job for you.
Psss…check out our own collection of rings here.
If you really want to splash a bit of cash, then good speakers are the way to go. Rarely do people ask for speakers, but it can’t be denied that quality sound is something everyone appreciates, even if they don’t know it yet. This wireless speaker by Marshall looks and sounds sharp, but if you’re not ready for the heavy bass that comes with such a gift, go for some high-calibre headphones or outdoor speakers for the park or garden, like this No Bounds portable speaker by Marley.
