Stuck for ideas, have prev given MAC/Topshop vouchers but would prefer a gift as she will be at ours christmas day.

Budget about £20

These are a bargain at £14 incl postage. Someone else posted on the big thread & I've swooped in for my goddaughter. Give her a couple and you have two to give to a friend keep for yourself.

A novel? Or a box of hotel chocolate? Or some very nice socks?

Manicure set and some nail varnish?

Desperad0 Wed 04-Oct-17 16:51:02

definitely not a novel, she's very much part of the annoying 'instagram set'

A piece of jewellery from accessorise, a make up set, the befit Christmas gift this year is about £14.50. A new eye shadow pallet?

The make up is a hard one as she is v. into it (and only uses mac or kylie lip kits) so am trying to avoid.

Sorry if I seem awkward i appreciate all the suggestions so far smile

That is a right bargain isee

Sadly i'm allergic to nail varnish but between my niece and god daughter I'm sure it will find a good home smile

Ted baker bath and body set from boots. Thats what my teeenage neices are getting, i bought the one with mini lipbalm etc and its all very nice

The nails inc star buy looks good but maybe a bit young for her

A beauty box from one of the big companies like Birchbox etc?

£15 Starbucks voucher and a insulated travel mug

After a comment on another thread I have latched onto these bed socks. I massively want them myself but they are so achingly ethically perfect (made in England from the wool of rescued sheep) they are Christmas in a woolly package.

annandale if not for my niece then my soft sock appreciating gbf, he will love those! Thank you

Absolutely a MAC voucher is good, or just go ahead and get her the Urban Decay Naked palette.

It's one of the most popular and versatile eye shadow palettes on earth, universally loved and coveted by teenage girls. Even if she already has one, she'll need to replace it eventually or could trade it in for a different set of colours.

We have opted for a subscription box (birchbox I think it's called). Think it was about £14 so the 15 year old we needed to buy for is getting one at Christmas and will then get one delivered during January then we just cancel subscription. Nice little treat extra in January and same cost we would of spent on one present. There is loads of different boxes and think you get five or six beauty and make up related items each box x
