15 year old girl - I'm stuck!

Hello. I looking for inspiration for my nearly 15 year old niece. She is more Jack Wills/Superdry than Top Shop in style. What do girls her age like? I thought about nice Paperchase/Cath Kidston bits but I don't know if she would find that a bit young. I want to steer clear of make up. Jewellery a possibility. Budget £25. Any ideas?

Perfume (any by Britney Spears is a hit with that age range) boots vouchers/JD Sport Vouchers/Clothes Vouchers, a lush gift set?

Hi, I don't know if she will be into Hollister however they are doing 3 body sprays for the price of 2. So you are getting 3 for £24. There are quite a few to choose from and they also come in different colours, so they look really nice in a gift bag. I got my niece 3 and I have been assured that they are great as they smell all day and maybe a bit younger than actual perfume.

Things from [[ Disaster Designs]] went down very well with my Jack Wills loving 15 yo niece last year. Avoid Cath Kidston - more for middle aged mummies than teens I think

Gah link fail

Thank you! Great ideas. Will check out hollister body sprays in particular!

Disaster designs looks amazing!

Does she have a charm bracelet? Christmasy charm if so?

DD is 13 and has Marc Jacobs Dot perfume on her list, if that helps any!

Magazine subscription?

The money? I know rubbish....

My 14 yr old stepdaughter would die if she got a britney spears perfume!! Sorry!!
Marc jacobs did a lovely set of roll on perfumes last year which were a hit.
This year she has hinted at an all in one sleepsuit - i've seen one in Next thats cream and snuggly.
Hollister is popular - but maybe too popular now - depends how 'edgy' she sees herself.
A hamper of hair and body treats and makeup - boots are always doing 3 for 2.
itunes vouchers?

Tis lovely mycats if you google them there's lots of online retailers. They are really nicely made, lots of attention to detail

Boots have some nice 'joules' smellies and nice socks.

Hollister seems to be the in thing grin

My 15 year old would be appalled at anything from Hollister but if your niece likes Jack W she'll probably like it.

Kate Moss does some nice, light perfumes which dd1 has been using since she was 14 or so and still likes now at nearly 18.

Good skincare stuff? I think Clarins do a set aimed at teens.

Otherwise something that always goes down well with my dds is a big box full of hairspray, nail varnish remover, cotton wool, make up remover wipes etc - things they use a lot of and need replacing often, so a useful thing to have them all nice and new at the same time!

Something small with voucher.

Is there a beauty salon nearby as you could get her vouchers for that so she could have her nails done or something or the local hair salon.

MyCatsRule Fri 09-Nov-12 21:24:56

Gosh you lot are good! Thanks so much, loads of fab ideas!

Lush stuff
ITunes voucher
Cinema tickets

My niece is that age and loves Marc Jacobs Daisy. I think she'd turn her nose up at celebrity perfumes sorry. I really like Hollister though - have been tempted to buy that for myself a few times.

Also, this watch went down well with my niece and I think it's really cute

I've got these head phone/ear muffs for our 15 year old niece

MyCatsRule Sat 10-Nov-12 16:39:56

I like those Caiprin - fab colour choice too. She walks the dog a lot, so might just be perfect. Thank you.
suebfg that watch is so cute and is on the list for my dd (10).

bruffin Sat 10-Nov-12 16:52:06

My Dd 15 loved the watch.
She wouldn't wear Hollister but loves the smellies.
Her favorite present for her birthday was Starbucks voucher. So I have got her a cup holder from Ebay.

A friend bought my Dd a Japanese message doll, it has a little slot in the bottom to leave a little message. Dd adored it, but she is really into Japanese things.
