Tween & Teen Gift Guide 2021

Tween and teens can be tricky to buy for especially if you are not looking to spend a million dollars on the newest technology trends out there, which sometimes Santa can help out with.  Each year my girls, currently almost 12 and almost 15, compile a list of items that are reasonably priced to give ideas to grandparents, aunts and uncles.  We don't like getting a bunch of stuff that will either be returned, donated  or tossed in a few months time.  Although usually your teens have a hobby that they are also really interested in such as dance, horseback riding is a big one for us, snowboarding, etc, this list is more generic to suit most teen girls go-tos for this holiday season.  Some of the items are old favorites such as gel polish that can last for up to two weeks, or candles, while other items are HOT this year such as the Oodie (see #3) or the Sunset Lamp (#1).  Also books are always a personal choice but I've linked two different YA sets that both of my girls have enjoyed and To All The Boys I've Loved Before has been made into a movie, while Shadow and Bone is a Netflix show!  Hope this is helpful to you!!!

  1. I want the Shadow & Bone Triology myself... but the To All the Boys series is a great idea - so cute!

    1. Have you watched it on Netflix? We watched it with Halie and I was so grateful she could explain things as we went along.

  2. Your kids have good taste, I wouldn't mind some of the thing son this list, haha! I think candles are always a winner, I always mention candles when anyone asks me what I'd like as I often have one burning!

    Hope that you are having a good week :) It's been a wet start to summer here, haha!
