Pamper Her With Treats

Which teenager would not be happy to see the latest film or to attend the concert of their favorite band? There is no doubt that most of them will not be half as excited at the sight of chocolate eggs. Treat her to things she likes and will get excited by. She will be delighted at the idea of spending an evening with her friends at the movies or a concert.

She may even enjoy a nice dinner at her favourite restaurant, or the new place that has opened which has been really wanting to try out. These experiences may not last long, but the memories surely will. Think of all the things she likes to do or has been wanting to learn and try to incorporate that into a treat - such as a fun workshop on decorating cakes if she has an eye and taste for desserts, a weekend trip with her friends, a visit to the amusement park or sign her up to learn a musical instrument she has always wished to play.

Customise the Gift to Her Tastes

What gifts do teens like? They grow up, and their tastes change, sometimes completely, in the space of a few months. They are not adults yet would like to be treated as though they are. Some are geeky and love their gadgets and high-tech accessories that revolve around their favorite PC, smartphone or game console. Many are more inclined toward fashion and style and their interests will lie in latest fashionable bag, jeans from their favorite brand, sneakers of the moment or trendy jewellery. Yet others will appreciate something entirely different, like a science fiction book, romantic novel, or a pet.

If you have no idea what interests her now, there is no need to go digging in her room! Respect her privacy and ask her what band (or genre) of music she likes to listen to, what is the last movie she went to see at the movies or just, what would she like to receive. Sometimes, asking is still the best option to really please. But if you already know what she likes, all you have to do is filter the selection of products to fit your teen's tastes and buy that. As a last resort, buy her things she can use such as stationery, a bag for school, journals, etc.

Look Beyond Materialistic Things

Gifts don’t have to come in a box, and sometimes doing simple things with her will mean the world to her - such as a girls night where you put face masks on and paint each others nails, or an elaborate movie night at home complete with popcorn, drinks, candy and a cosy blanket; you could also sit and watch her favourite shows on TV - you may not like them but she will be pleased that you’re making an effort to understand her world and that will help you bond with her.

Do you want to offer a beautiful girl a lovely gift? Choosing a gift for a teenager is a difficult exercise as you cannot give the same thing to a 12 year and a 15 year girl because tastes and preferences change. It is therefore important to focus on the tastes of the girl for whom this surprise is intended.

Non-materialistic gifts create beautiful memories that one can cherish for a lifetime. The idea of taking a 15-year-old-teenage girl to a dinner date, organizing a breakfast for her with the favorite food and making her homemade goodies will show her how much you love her.
