As your daughter grows up, it’s probably getting harder to buy gifts for her. Teenage girls can be tricky at times and it seems like there’s no pleasing them. So, when it comes to their birthdays, how could you possibly know what to surprise them with? Unless they give you a specific gift that they want, it can feel like you’re walking blind. Fortunately, there are lots of perfect ideas for teenage girl’s gifts. Here are some.
Fashion Photo Shoot
This isn’t just fun, it’s ‘essential’ for all teenage girls. Your daughter probably has a few social media accounts and on those accounts are her best pictures of herself. She’ll jump at the chance to have professional pictures taken in her best outfits. You could even get her friends involved and the photographer can take pictures of them together. That way it’s ideal for capturing memories too.
Let’s be honest, life as a teenage girl can be rough. Exams, acne, boys…the list goes on. It’s time for figuring out who they are and that can be hard work. A day away from all the confusion can do wonders, and you can even attempt to make it a day where you bond with her by tagging along. You’ll be surprised by how she may let her guard down when she’s relaxed.
What teenage girl doesn’t need a new top to impress the guy she likes? No girl can refuse shopping for new outfits and there’s almost always a social event to shop for. Treat her to a new outfit, some jewelry and shoes, and you may get back in her good books for a while. It isn’t likely to last long, but take what you can get.
Pets as Presents
Having a pet can be fun, so surprising your teen with a pet can be one of their special moments. Especially if they were eyeing a cute poodle or kitty of their choice. Great way to becoming a pet parent.
A Culture Day
If your daughter is more into books than boys, plan a day that you know she’ll love. Perhaps you could visit a museum or attend a book signing with one of her favourite authors. She may even be into science fiction conventions, like Comic-Con. Events like these only happen once a year most of the time but you could get your hands on the tickets ready for her birthday as a surprise.
Perhaps your daughter is more into her music. Whether she has a favourite band/singer or she’s more into quiet acoustic sets, there’s sure to be something going on that you can take her to. Look at local events happening around the time of her birthday and get something organized. The whole family could go for a meal afterward to celebrate.
If you have a teenage daughter that’s a bit of an adrenaline junkie, you could consider organizing some outdoor pursuits. It’s easy to find activities like go-karting, quad biking and assault courses these days because they’re so popular. Get her friends together and plan a day out. They can compete against each other, with the winner getting a special prize.
It’s difficult to find the perfect gift for any teenager, but once you do, the smiles are worth it!
