As a mum to a teenager and a toddler it can be really hard to find inspiration for gifts for the two hugely different age groups. I’ve also got a teenage niece too so I’ve had to really give it some thought this year. So here’s my Christmas gift ideas for Teenagers:
The Omegon Universe2go is an amazing star viewer with an accompanying app, perfect for your budding astronomer. It’s really clever how it works. You insert your phone into the top of the viewer and the Universe2o gives you an amazing augmented view of the sky.
The info is overlaid onto the real image of the sky so you don’t have to read up on what you are viewing, you can see it all as you go. It tells you exactly where you are and what you are watching, perfect for beginners or more experienced star gazers.
2. SMIGGLE EARPHONES
The Smiggle Tech Headphones are perfect for the younger teenagers who want a stylish pair of headphones but not the price tag of an advanced pair. I’m so glad that I no longer have to endure hearing all his favourite YouTubers. I’m a YouTube fan myself but there’s only so much YouTube Gamer videos you can listen too!
3. THE VOICE GAME
Karaoke has moved on so much since I was a kid singing to the radio & making up dance moves in my bedroom. If your Teen loves singing then The Voice including microphones is a perfect game for them this Christmas.
4. PUG MAKE UP POUCH
Whether you teen is make up crazy or just starting to experiment with their look, they’ll love this super cute Pug Make Up Pouch. Actually I’d love this cute make up pouch, plus it’s a great size for all your its & pieces.
5. 7TH HEAVEN TOP TO TOE TREATS
If you can’t spoil them a little bit at Christmas when can you? Give her a little pamper with 7th Heaven Top to Toe Treats. The set includes everything you need for a top to toe pampering including face masks, body scrubs, hair masks to nourish your skin & hair.
6. CHOC CHICOS KIT
If you’ve got a mini chocoholic on your hands then treat them to Choc Chicos Organic Chocolate Making Kit so they can create their own. Plus it’s dairy free too so perfect for people with allergies & intolerances.
7. PERFUME BY TRIBE
I remember this perfume by Tribe back in the 90s and now it’s been relaunced. It’s a bright cocktail of juicy fruits, a delighted bouquet of rose, jasmine and orange flower brings the femininity. Then, soft musks, creamy vanilla and sheer cedarwood are enveloping and comfortable offering a bold and unique signature. Perfect for your not so little lady.
8. ST MORIZ TRIO SET
I love the St Moriz Professional Self Tanning Lotion trio set, it’s a fab self tanner but it really reasonably priced, making it perfect for teenagers. There’s a choice of shades meaning that even though your teen may want to tan it can be natural and not over the top.
9. NEXTBASE 112 DASH CAM
If your teen is taking driving lessons or has just passed their test, you’ll be worried about their safety on the road as well as the price of insurance. The Nextbase 112 Dash Cam is a perfect gift for them, not only will it reduce the premiums but it will help give you piece of mind. It’s a great little dash cam, compact and on the lower end of the price bracket too.
10. PALMERS FLIP BALM
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Watermelon FlipBalm is a fab little stocking filler that they can pop in their school bag or keep in a pocket. It’s really hydrating for chapped lips in the winter and smells amazing.
11. ADMIRAL YOUNG DRIVER
Admiral Young Driver is junior driving lessons for 10-17 year olds. My niece did this for her 12th birthday and absolutely loved it so I can’t wait for Brandon to try it out. He’s almost 16 so it’s a great introduction to driving ready for when he starts his driving lessons when he turns 17.
The sites have full beginners’ zones and a full road system with traffic signs, junctions and parking zones. That way they encourage responsible driving, not high speed thrills and spills. I can’t wait to see his face when tries this out in the New Year.
So that’s my list of gift ideas. Are there any other fab ideas you would include?
