Cute Gift Ideas for Teen & Tween Girls

My two nieces had birthdays this week and they're getting older, reaching early teen and tween status and it's kind of difficult to find things that aren't too old, but aren't too young for them. However, they take after their aunti and are soooo girly! They love fun products so I knew they'd enjoy a little internet purchase from Sephora! With Christmas just less than 10 weeks away, I figure it's never too early to start sharing ideas and shopping for holiday gifts!

The youngest turned 12 and is not really into make-up just yet, beyond the occasional flavored lipgloss, but I knew she'd enjoy this Party Girl bath set from Philosophy including Bling-Tini, Tan-Tini and Tini Tini String Bikini flavored shower gels/shampoos/bubble baths. They are actually apple, bellini and pomegranate flavored! YUM!!! And for my older niece who is turning 14 and just starting to really get into make-up, I picked up this darling gift box by Benefit called Celebutante!

Here's a close-up of the inside:

It also comes with a step-by-step lesson, which is great for a young girl who's just learning and getting interested! And it's appropriate. I found other sets that were the good colors or really cute, but they had colors like "Fame Whore" or the fabulous Nars blush in "Orgasm" but I can't give that to a 14 year old?!?!?! ICK!!! And it caused me to notice that I won't be able to share my favorite blush with my nieces till they're 60 and old enough to learn what Orgasm means... sad!

Something I learned as well about shopping at Sephora online is that I got to pick loads of free samples to include as well, so my sister and her girls will be rolling in face creams, primers and perfume that I selected for them to try! How Fun!?!?!

Pink Julep!



  1. I love the Tini set! I am going to get that for a friend for xmas!

  2. I saw that Benefit kit and have been trying to decide who I could buy it for! Perfect for on the go!

  3. Sephora is a GREAT to buy your daughters gifts. The lipgloss packs are great, the body stuff, even a light eyeshadow. My girls always love it.

  4. I love this post and I am going to get my daughters and nieces those kits for Christmas. I am going to post about the Party Girl Kit--giving you credit of course--seems appropriate for the PPPG blog. Thanks for the tips and the great scouting.

  5. Interesting text. You have a nice blog. Keep it up!
