Ahhh teenagers, you can barely live with them and you can’t live without them. This doesn’t even take into account the mammoth task of buying a gift for them when celebrations roll around.
Whether you’re after gifts for teenage boys, or gifts for teenage girls, teens can be notoriously hard to buy for — whether it be for a birthday, for Christmas or just because we can.
With moods as changeable as the tide and trends going in and out of fashion weekly, it can be tricky to keep up with what teens really, really want.
That’s why we created this blog post. It’s all to unravel the secret world of teenage girls, and how to buy for them no matter the season.
If you type the above phrase into Mr Google you will be hit with endless pages, blog posts, and articles with gift suggestions ranging from tie-dye kits to games, to chocolates.
In our research for this blog post we even found the most popular teen gifts from the Netherlands in 2019 broken down by subcategory. Just for reference, the top options included food, games, and books.
I don’t know about you, but if this author were to ever buy a tie-dye kit for their teen they’d be met with a withering eyebrow raise and maybe an infamous eye roll.
The point here is gift lists are great, but they are kind of like shooting an arrow in the dark. Maybe, just maybe, you will find the perfect gift in one; but that is hard to come by, it’s the nirvana of the gift-giving world.
BUT, and we’ve hoped you’ve stuck with us for this, what if we told you there was a way to make sure that gift arrow hit its mark?
A pamper pack or hamper, includes a selection of smaller gifts and in our humble opinion it is the perfect solution for a tricky-to-buy-for teen girl.
Because they include multiple products.
One of the presents included, if not all, is sure to tickle their fancy. Each gift is designed for a treat-yourself experience; something any stressed teen is sure to appreciate — even if they don’t outright say it.
At Raw Beauty Box, we have multiple pamper packs to choose from; all you have to do is pick the one that contains products you know your teen enjoys or needs.
If you’re after cool birthday gifts for teens we recommend recreating a spa experience at home — so, choose pamper packs that put beauty or sensory products at the forefront.
It’s a gift that allows your teen to feel special and to disconnect in what is an already stressful period in their life; one full of hormones, boys, homework, and social media — we sure don’t miss those days.
If you’re asking yourself what to put in a gift basket for teenage girl when it comes to Christmas time, then we’d suggest going with a selection of sweet treats, home décor items, phone or tech accessories, AND beauty products you know they enjoy.
Christmas is all about giving so we’d go a little bigger here.
Now, we know this is easier said than found. If your teen is a fan of Lindt chocolate, likes Raw Beauty Box products, and Glow Recipe cosmetics, why not mix and match? You can always buy items individually, mix and match smaller pamper packs, and package the basket up yourself.
In terms of sizing, a small basket typically contains four to five items, while a medium has six to eight, and a large one has nine and up.
Here’s a selection of different gift options that could work in a D.I.Y Christmas pamper pack.
- Bath Bombs
- Scented Candle
- Phone Case
- Rose Quartz Jade Roller
- Water bottle with Bluetooth Speaker
- Coffee Body Scrub
- Whipped Salt Sugar Scrub
- Personalised Daily Planner
- Bath Dust
- Tiffany Quilted Velvet Cosmetics Pouch
- Slip Silk Eye Masks
- Hair Barrettes
By no means should you feel beholden to go with all, or any, of the options we’ve listed above.
These are just ideas based on things we know and love — think of it as a gifty dose of inspiration.
Now the best beauty gifts for teenage girls should always be natural and eco-friendly.
Why’s that you ask?
Well for one, this planet is all we have, so it’s important to take care of it.
Secondly, as much as 60 per cent of what goes onto your skin goes into your body; you don’t want that to be chock-full of chemicals, especially when it comes to growing teens.
Now, while most businesses who claim to be all “natural”, “eco-friendly” etc. and so forth usually have good intentions, they sometimes don’t always walk the walk.
Thankfully there is an easy remedy for this.
The biggest tip-off to whether a brand is doing the dodgy is ALWAYS the ingredient list, so pay close attention; there are chemicals that are harmful to both health and the environment.
- Synthetic perfumes, or the word ‘fragrance’,
- SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate),
- Propylene glycol,
- Anything beginning with ‘petro’.
Avoid any so-called “natural” brand who uses the above.
