Stocking Fillers for Teenagers

Stocking Fillers for Teenagers
Throughout my early teenage years I have had very well meaning but utterly clueless gifts as I imagine everybody has had. A few aunties and family friends however, always seemed to get that winning combination of patronising-free gifts with something that doesn’t jump onto a fad that is over so quick it makes your head spin. These have always highlighted how well they know you and are cherished for years. I remember when I was very young a neighbour bought me a cylindrical make-up case and brush holder. I loved it and used it everyday until it quite literally fell apart. For me, receiving gifts has been a wonderful experience but nothing in comparison to the joy of shopping for that perfect present for somebody else – let alone the suspense and excitement as you wait for them to unwrap it. Therefore now that I am beginning my consider my gifts for others, I am reminded of the difficulty buying for teenage girls.
I think for girls the key is finding something that is timeless, not in the same way as a chanel perfume or good book is timeless, but rather is universal and inoffensive. This is something that would suit a range of personalities and styles because it is something that every girl can use.
I have compiled my favourite stocking fillers with budgets in mind. These would also all be perfect for Secret Santa in this respect.

    Great post! Really helpful for the elder relatives (and godparents, family friends, etc.) who don’t know what gift to give us girly girls. 😆
