OMG, so much teen angst during the holidays. So hard to find the right gift for your teen, especially when the trends change at the speed of light, or the speed of texting, whichever comes fastest. LOL.
Here’s a guide from our friends at PopCosmo, a local blog dedicated to trends and style for teens and tweens.
Buy some of these TDF goodies and your teen will be your BFF, even though they hate to have an AITR.
(Legend for Acronyms:
OMG=Oh My God
LOL=Laugh out Loud
TDF=To Die For
BFF=Best Friend Forever
AITR=Adult in THE ROOM)
For the glam gal:
RGB Nail Polish
Gorgeous, very true colors, 5-free (No Formaldehyde, No Toluene, No DBP, No Formaldehyde Resin, No Camphor) and, best of all, FREE shipping. Their nude colors are amazing, but sold fast! Click here to purchase.
For the gabby gal who’s always on the phone:
These are available at Dandelion for $38. First, it keeps cell phone radiation away from your face. And, it’s old school so you can actually be hands-free while resting it in the crook of your neck like we moms used to with our princess phones.
For your girl’s BFF:
This is like a fancy friendship bracelet. The fringe adds the swag. Available for $35 online at The Doctor’s Closet.
For the techie who always has the latest:
This is a secure handle for ANY full-size tablet computer. Available for $19.99 by clicking here.
For the bubble-popper (aren’t we all?):
You can just hear these bubbles popping as the days go by. Available for $20.12 by clicking here.
For the writer:
This gorgeous customizable and refillable journal is $74.95. Choose your journal cover color, then choose your interior fabric, then choose your notebook cover design. Click here to purchase.
For the sports teen:
Shown above is the VanDam Double Rainbow, $16. Rumba watches range in price and have many different designs. Girls like to wear more than one at a time, stacked up. Sold at Diva’s locally and online by clicking here.
For all girls:
The card says it all: “Wear this necklace & may joy and happiness buzz around you all day.” Available locally at Luna Boutique for $19.99.
For the girl who loves her hair:
Feathers are still hot and Consider Boutique puts two in the hair for about $10. Tweens LOVE this (and Justin Bieber must too!).
For the reader: (for moms too!)
Hunger Games trilogy
Local favorite actress Jennifer Lawrence is starring in these films, so you better read the book before seeing them. Available locally at Carmichael’s.
For the fashionista:
Longchamp bag in her favorite color.
Longchamp NEVER goes out of style. I have had mine since I was 19 and still carry it today. There are so many colors to pick from; this is a sure bet. Available locally at Von Maur for about $125.
So there it is. AWC and CWYL.
(AWC=After While, Crocodile.
CWYL=Chat with you later.)
