Christmas Gift Guide: Teens

Christmas gift guide 2013, christmas gift guide for teens, what to buy little sister for Christmas, Christmas gift ideas for teenage sisters

1. Handmade Bath Bombs / 2. Nails inc. Message In A Manicure / 3. Coin Purse / 4. Gingerbread Soap / 5. Anna Sui x ASOS exclusive / 6. Brit Stitch Bags / 7. Paul & Joe Cosmetics Set

I have a 15 year old sister who reminds me a lot of myself when I was her age.  I started getting in to fashion somewhere during my first year of Secondary school, taking influence and style ideas from magazines. I bought all my clothes from Tammy Girl and I wanted to be Winona Ryder. Things didn't get any cooler when it hit the year 2000 and I was 15.  All of THIS happened (also THIS!) and I totally went along with it all! What were we thinking, right?!

My little sister is way trendier and savvy than I ever was, and I think teenagers these days are generally a lot more cooler than we were (it's true!). These seven items in the image above is based on what I would buy my sis but it's also a bit of a wishlist for my 16 year old self. I would have also been delighted to have received any one of these, even though I'm trying to ignore the fact that I probably asked for a pair of Adidas Poppers. My favourite item is probably the Paul & Joe make up set! JUST LOOK AT IT! CATS!!

The Brit Stitch satchels and the Lulu Guinness coin purse is a bit more expensive (the non-glittery purses are slightly cheaper) but I would club together with my mum or my other sister to get a high quality and well-made product that will last a very long time. I have a couple of the Brit Stitch bags and they are something that I see myself wearing it for years and years to come.

I discovered a brand called Bomb Cosmetics and they sell the most nicest bath stuff. I've actually ordered a present from there, and also a couple of things for myself so I will write up a review when I've used it all. I can't use bath bombs or soaps from Lush, I have an allergy with some of the ingredients, so I'm always looking for an alternative. If you're a fan wax melts, then check out the Little Hotties! The scents sound amazing and you can mix them to make your own unique fragrances! The whole set comes to £15.99 and it would make a great present!

  4. I think a Brit-Stitch bag would make the perfect gift for any age. I definitely agree that kids are much cooler these days, probably down to social media/the celeb culture!
