Holiday Gift Guide | Teens

This week’s gift guide is particularly pertinent to me because I have three daughters who are not yet teens but who are sadly too old for toys on Christmas day. This guide is a cheeky shopping list for me that might be useful to some of you too. Please accept my apologies if you have boys to buy for, I literally have no idea where to start with boys!

Holiday Gift Guide Teen

I have compiled a list of items that my girls have cooed at in the past few weeks and other bits and pieces that have made it on to their Christmas list like the Zoella Book Club bundle for my 12 year old for example or a cute fleece lined beanie from Buffwear – you’ve got to love a gift that’s pretty and practical!

This year I have really felt the influence of You Tubers on my daughters’ tastes and their brand awareness catches me by surprise sometimes. Recently, my 9 year old expressed an interest in a Charlotte Tilbury  lipstick *insert wide-eyed emoji here*.

They want to shop where You Tubers shop, eat the same food and they covet beautiful homeware, which seems bizarre at their age but I’m pretty sure You Tube shopping haul videos and home tours are responsible for this. Mind you, I can’t blame them for wanting to live in a Pinterest friendly home, can I? These kids much more sophisticated than I was at their age and hopefully the gift guide won’t disappoint.

It seems impossible that Christmas is just over three weeks away but then we probably say that every year! I’ll be putting the tree up this weekend which is very early for us but we’ve got a little gap in out diary so we’re going for it. Get in touch and let me know how your holiday preparations are going.

    Is it bad that I like most of those things for me? I love especially the Instax Mini Camera, it has been in my wish list for ages

      I want them all too! I’ve got the Instax camera in blue and it’s really cool though I wish it was pink!

      Maybe I should have called “gift guide for me and my friends!’
