A Gift Guide for Teens and Tweens - Pt 1 - Pretty Real

A Gift Guide for Teens and Tweens - Pt 1

4:53 PM

This one is easy because I have 2 kiddos in this category and the oldest always has a running wish list. ;) Plus don't tell, but preteen girls are like the MOST fun to shop for! My kids sometimes read Pretty Real (how sweet is that?!) so I can't say what's on its way 😉but I can say we love all of this and have some of it!

Preppy Gifts for Teen Girls and Tween Girls

Note: I tried to move from left to right. ha. Next year I'll number them.

1. Jessica's fave fuzzy headband $14.99. Whether for face washing or wearing IRL, your teen needs one of these!

2. Personalized 3D Check Throw $70.40 (20% off). ACT NOW- personalize items have a deadline. I love all of Bauble Bar's personalized blankets but Genevieve immediately oohed over this one! 

3. Mini Photo Printer for Smartphones $79. I kind of want this for myself! Let's get those pics off our phones shall we? It would be perfect for Genevieve's bulletin board!

4. Minky Couture Throw $98. All of my kiddos love a soft blanket. And these have weight to them which is even better! Maybe if I get the girls this one, they'll release mine. A mama can dream.

5. Smiley Face Slippers $15.99. The IT slipper of the year. I guarantee her friends have them.

6. Iridescent Satin Pillowcase $19.  A must-have for curly heads (or any heads?) but much more cool than the plain ones my girls have.

7. Modern Calligraphy Book $7.99. I always like to get the kids something crafty. And somehow doodles and writing is still relevant.

8. Personalized name bracelet  $51 (40% off of $85, or BOGO free!) How cute is this? Classic enough to last for years to come while still being fun and fresh.

9. Quilted shopper $25. It seems like the older they get, the more stuff they cart to and from school. Filed under cute + practical. 

10. Roller Rabbit Pajamas $118. Two girls showed up wearing Roller Rabbit PJs to Genevieve's sleepover. And that's when I realized it's a thing. Feel free to send this list to grandma. ;) I also love the look for less!

11. STUFF preppy makeup bag $30 (or the DIY version $19.99 pictured underneath it!). A thing for all their things.

12. Gel Nail Kit  $25.99. Highly reviewed and supposedly easy to use with great results! If not for them, get it for yourself. Oh and grab some gel nail polish while you're at it!

PS- Last year's "Trending Gifts for Preteen Girls" was my most purchased from guide. You can find it here
