Each year I try to go to one of the major shopping VIP days. I like to go as there are always great bargains to be had and it also pushes me into getting the remainder of the Christmas shopping done!
This year I was invited to attend the Highpoint Shopping day. The preschooler and I went along and he had a great time at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
It was then on to try and finish off the Christmas shopping. I almost made it! I do still have a few outstanding gifts to buy.
While I was there I took some photos of gift ideas for teenagers this Christmas. I find teenagers harder to buy for than younger kids, so am always looking for new ideas – feel free to leave your go to presents for teenagers in the comments below.
These headbands from Lululemon are great. I bought a couple a few years ago and they have washed and worn very well.
The range of colours and patterns is huge, so are a great gift for an active teenager. As they are one size fits all, you can’t get the size wrong! Prices start from $15
For the male teenager who is a little more interested in fashion, these hats are great value at $29 from Zara.
Logitech Multimedia Speaker
This little speaker is well priced and works on many devices – iPod, iPad, notebook etc. Currently $29.98 at Dick Smiths.
These cute earrings set were only $14.00 from TopShop. I have been pondering the question lately about at what age do girls get their ears pierced?
Stationery Gift Sets
Kikki-K have some very cute gift sets on sale for Christmas. These two for less than $30 are great value and come beautifully presented in a box.
Did you know Hula Hoops are back in vogue again? Did anyone else have a Big M Hula Hoop that smelt – I had banana! Anyway you can pick up some brightly coloured Hula Hoops from $9 at Rebel Sports.
Or if they already have a Hula Hoop and live in Melbourne you could by them some Hula Hoop classes here.
Snapback caps are a pretty common sight amongst teenagers. This one from Hurley is only $19.99 at Ozmosis.
For the active teenager you could buy them classes for Parkour:
Parkour is a non-competitive discipline originating in France, encompassing a set of principles combined with a way of moving within your environment and overcoming obstacles of any kind, be they physical or mental.
There are many Parkour organisations around the country, but for Melbourne folk you can check out Melbourne Parkour who have basic classes from $15 per class.
All of my kids adore Bounce. General access to Bounce (including grip socks) for 1 hour is $16.50 and then only $10.00 for the 2nd hour. New centres in Blackburn, Victoria and other states are opening up soon.
