Still need to buy a few bits for my dd (16)
So far she has
Iphone 6
Soap and glory big set and little set
Her godmother has bought her the beats pill
Wireless Dr dre headphones
Just wondering what you've got your teens? Just a few little presents to buy for her and I'm looking for inspiration

if you think she still needs more than all that but have no idea of her hobbies or interests, maybe just give her money?

Blimey, she's a lucky girl, my DD would love an iphone.

DD (17) has a coat, a guitar, socks, some posters and some sheet music.

DS1 (14) mainly clothes and new rugby stuff, including some tickets to the rugby world cup next year.

DS2 (12) has lego mindstorm and jigsaws etc.

We had hours of fun last year with a pack of cards!!

Well I'm incredibly proud of her..she's had a tough year after months of end of trying to find an independent school with space we finally found one a lovely quaker school. She weekly boards and goes back Sunday nights so I don't see a lot of her. After all the bullying and problems she's come out stronger and after 11 years of bullying she's finally happy so she deserves a treat.
I normally till her a little stocking so just want little bits plus I'll be glad to have her old iPhone as my phone conked out last month and I've being running on a cheapie so the iPhone come from my phone cooking out plus I save £2 coins all year round which bought the phone

Yorkshire, you don't have to justify why you are buying your kids what you can afford.

But you have to understand that listing off expensive presents may result in reactions from posters who think you are bragging.

Perfume? Debenhams have a half price Vera wang edp. Also lloyds chemists have some good ones for 9.99.

Makeup brushes? 3 for 2 on Real Techniques.

Didn't want to risk a mumsnet flamming

TongueBiter Sat 20-Dec-14 11:42:30

My DD is 18, and has asked for a good perfume.

YorkshireAtHeart Sat 20-Dec-14 11:43:03

Thankyou tongue
Hadn't thought about perfume it I don't want to spend loads on a stocking But not something she won't use

TongueBiter Sat 20-Dec-14 11:46:06

What perfume does she wear? Lloyds had Beyoncé Heat, a Kylie one, can't remember the others!

TongueBiter Sat 20-Dec-14 11:47:44

Dorothy P have some scented socks - rub them and they smell of chocolate/cherry/strawberry.

Anything school related? My dd2 asked for fine-liners!

My Mum always used to make us nice but useful stockings with ear buds, cotton pads, make up wipes, nail varnish and remover, fancy smellies, make up brushes etc.

If she boards, how about a nice little photo frame with a photo of the two of you to put beside her bed?

I've bought ds (15) a lot of chocolate, books, games, fluffy socks, fleece jim jams, DVD's, smellies, and a jacket but we've just got back from an overnight stay in London and the Warner Bros studio so that was the 'biggie'.

YorkshireAtHeart Sat 20-Dec-14 11:51:13

Marc Jacobs,chanel NO5,Joan Malone,floral botanica,christian Dior she buys a lot of perfume from Birthday presents and save up pocket money for weeks. Have you seen any offers on the Marc Jacobs daisy? I know she likes the scent of it.
Arh fineliners im forever buying them but I'm on the hunt for the felt top ones triplus I think their called. I've certainly got a lot of ideas now

YorkshireAtHeart Sat 20-Dec-14 11:52:58

I've bought her some dark chocolate as she suffers from painful periods and school nurse said it will boast her sugar levels aswell and some smellies for back to school

RJnomore Sat 20-Dec-14 11:53:04

Its £40 right enough but if she's getting a beats pill what about a beats pill dude? I looked at it for my 15yo but decided on something else.

Pound shop had Sally Hansen nail polish in yesterday.

I'm just going to have a look at my stocking stuff will post again if it gives me any ides but...

Don't forget the chocolate shock

TongueBiter Sat 20-Dec-14 11:53:16

Couple of Lush bath bombs?

MrsRaegan Sat 20-Dec-14 11:53:28

Marc Jacobs daisy is on offer in the fragrance shop just now.

RJnomore Sat 20-Dec-14 11:54:18

Cross post!

LumpySpacedPrincess Sat 20-Dec-14 11:56:27

What about a beautiful diary and an ink pen, or some lovely stationary.

YorkshireAtHeart Sat 20-Dec-14 11:59:13

Didn't know they did a dude for the beats pill? £40.00 for a holder? Ideally I just want little stocking fillers as ive spent a lot on her so Prehaps I could prompt her to buy one herself. Bath bombs sound good some new stationary would be ideal maybe a pug makeup bag as a pencil case as she adores our pug

Cerisier Sat 20-Dec-14 11:59:42

For stockings I have got DD16 and 19 eye liner, mascara, nail varnish, perfume, choc, orangina.

Big presents are DVDs, calendars, lego, board games, clothes. It struck me that I was buying the same things ten years ago but they like it all and it gives everyone plenty to do on Christmas Day.

RJnomore Sat 20-Dec-14 12:02:40

This is the blue one, they come in each colour and each colour has a different face$ja=cgid:12488199530%7Ctsid:59158%7Ccid:200217410%7Clid:98396707970%7Cnw:g%7Ccrid:49890994250%7Crnd:1828585396035985164%7Cdvc:t%7Cadp:1o1%7Cbku:1

I want a pug. I am so jealous.

YorkshireAtHeart Sat 20-Dec-14 12:05:33

I've bought her sims and some board games to play at school.oh I have seen them I work in a school and in the study rooms the girls have them but no beats pill inside always wondered what their for?
