Holiday Gift Guide Day 3! For the teens…


Welcome to Day 3 of the Holiday Gift Guide!  Today is by far the scariest day.  Are you ready?  We’re wading into the world of…TEENAGERS.  Gifts for teens are by far the hardest gifts, especially if you don’t live with any on a regular basis.

So, with a little help from some friends, here is the gift guide for teens!  I tried to do an equal mix of boys and girls with gifts for different budgets!


1. Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Portable Speakers – $199

Beats headphones are crazy popular right now, so a lot of people are really excited about these Pill speakers.  They connect by Bluetooth or auxiliary input and also allow you to take phone calls through them.  These are actually really cool, and I totally want them for myself too!  This would be a great gift for the teenager that’s always listening to music.

SephoraforHerSephoraforhim2. Sephora Fragrance Samplers for Her AND Him – $65

These include 14 samplers of Sephora’s most popular fragrances for women and men.  After going through all the samplers, you (or the gift recipient!) choose your favorite scent and then take  the included coupon into Sephora for a full size bottle!  I love that there is all different choices of scents for different tastes and then they get a full size bottle of their favorite one!

Plus it gets teenage boys away from AXE body spray so that’s a plus.


3. 5 pair Doctor Who sock set – $14.50

These are the cutest socks for your fave Doctor Who fan, which is a super popular TV series with teens!


4. BH Cosmetics 120 Eyeshadow Palette – $12.95

I LOVE these BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes!  The picture is of the 5th generation, which is my personal favorite, but there are tons of different ones to choose from.  Unlike some palettes in this price range, the quality on these shadows is great and super pigmented.  I love the mix of brights and neutrals in this palette!

This is a great gift for teenage girls who are just starting to build their make up collections.


5. Divergent Series Complete Box Set – $33.58

Is anyone else loving the Divergent series? Technically these are a young adult series, but I am definitely not a young adult and still love them!  These would be a great gift for the book worm teenager in your life.


6. Men’s Nail Grooming Kit – $16

My husband totally made fun of me for including this for teenage boys, but listen!  I am all for encouraging good hygiene for men!  Why not start them in their teenage years??  Seems totally reasonable to me.


7. IPSY Glam Bag Subscription – $110 for a year or $10/month

There are lots of these monthly beauty product subscriptions out there, but the IPSY Glam Bag is my personal favorite.  I think this would be a great gift for a girly teenager!  Each month, subscribers receive deluxe samples and full size beauty products in a cute little bag.  This is a great way to find what products you love and what you don’t love.  Plus, you get fun products that maybe aren’t available locally to you.  Love it!


8. FujiFilm Instax Mini 8 – $69

One of the teenagers at church had one of these and I just thought it was so cute!  It’s pretty similar to a Polaroid camera and is small and slim enough to slip into your purse.  It’s a great alternative to Instagram because you actually get little pictures that you can hang up.  So cute!


9. Roku LT Streaming Player – $49.99

The Roku is a digital media player that allows users to streaming TV shows and movies (like Netflix or Hulu) through their TVs.  This is a great alternative to streaming Netflix and Hulu through a game system or BluRay player.  It’s small and super, super easy to set up and use.  If the teens (or their parents) already have Netflix and Hulu subscriptions, then there is absolutely no extra monthly costs.


10. Visa Gift Card – various

Pretty obvious gift, but what teenager doesn’t love money??!

This concludes Day 3 of the Holiday Gift Guide!  Not too bad, right?! Tomorrow will be gifts for kids of different ages, so be watching for that!
