Birthdays are an important part of growing up and it’s a very serious thing in teenage conversations among the peers. Of course, not all teenagers want to celebrate their birthdays the same way, but when it comes to gifts, everyone wants to have something cool to show or tell. It may not be easy to choose a gift for your teenage daughter but it can be a fun and rewarding experience, especially when you see how happy she is with the gift. Just remember to choose a gift with her preferences and tastes in mind, and leave out your own ideals at least for that day.
Makeup starter kit
Girls love makeup. Still, many teenage girls have trouble discovering what look and shades work the best for them. So, why not give your daughter an advantage in the art of makeup by getting her a full starter kit that she can play with as much as she wants? If you, too, are little knowledgeable about makeup products make sure to ask someone who knows their foundations, powders and eyeshadows for assistance.
Perfume is definitely another gift that teenage girls love to receive. While they enjoy the interesting and unique design of the perfume bottle, it’s important that the scent is gentle and not too overpowering for their age. Again, asking the shop assistant for help would be really beneficial in this case because they know very well what kind of scents are most appealing to different age groups.
Regardless of their age, women enjoy jewelry bits and pieces. If you decide to buy some jewelry for your daughter’s birthday you should have a general idea about her likes and dislikes. This shouldn’t prove to be too difficult, though. Whether it’s a delicate dangly piece or a statement one, forget about what you want, but buy the jewelry specifically for your daughter and her teenage style. If your daughter is turning sixteen or seventeen, you might even want to consider some kind of a delicate piercing.
Hobby related gifts
Teenagers are very specific with their hobbies and this is a period in their lives when they’ll actually have most time and will to dedicate themselves to something creative. Therefore, make sure to show your support and get them something they would really use and cherish. Music, painting, writing, sports, etc. are only some of the usual hobbies teenagers have, and these can provide you with numerous possibilities when it comes to buying a gift.
You might think that shopping for makeup, perfume and jewelry for someone else is difficult but shopping for clothes can turn out to be twice as hard. Therefore it would be best to opt for vouchers or allow your daughter to shop for clothes online and pick her own gift. If her birthday is in the middle of Christmas sales, you can get her vouchers for shopping, or check out some swimwear online if her birthday is during the summer. Being allowed to pick her own clothing will definitely be considered a great gift.
Tech and gadgets
Teenagers enjoy the modern age more than anyone else and they usually know a lot more about technology and gadgets than their parents. This being the case, speakers, headphones, game consoles, phones, selfie lights, tablets, etc. can end up being a great gift for a teenager, especially since most of the gadgets come specially decorated and jazzed up depending on whether they’re for girls or boys.
Teenagers value their individuality and unique personality above all else so keep that in mind when going shopping for a perfect gift for your daughter’s birthday. Asking for help when you feel confused is actually advisable, so don’t feel bad about not being absolutely sure what to get for your daughter, because shopping for someone else is never an easy task – no matter how close and important that person is to you.
