We are getting down to the nitty gritty on days left before Easter. If you are a parent who tends to procrastinate (like me) on the gift buying, then looking at the calendar probably makes you grit your teeth and roll your eyes. I admit, with how early Easter is this year, other than candy, I haven't bought a single thing for my girl's baskets yet. However, I had my girls (ages 12 and 16) give me some suggestions on inexpensive gifts they would like to find in their basket this year, so if you have a teen or tween girl to buy for, and are stumped, here are the top picks from my girls to help you out:
My girls love music or like to tune out household noise when they are using their tablets, so #1 on their list is Fun Colored Earbuds.
Thanks to all those beauty tutorials going around on Facebook, Donut Bun Rings are super popular with the teens and tweens lately. You can use a sock for a free bun maker, but my girls like rings like these because they can insert bobby pins into them easily for better hold. Just be sure to match the ring to your daughter's hair color so it blends in with the hair better.
My girls like art, but they are too old for those babyish coloring books. They each got an Adult Coloring Book for Christmas, and have been having a blast filling in the pages ever since.
Sunnies were big on both of their lists. With summer right around the corner, they are already plotting their outdoor adventures.
Flip Flop Sandals would be most welcomed.
For those girls who like sports and fitness, an Insulated Water Bottle is a great idea!
My girls like to keep Facial Cleansing Towelettes in their backpacks and fitness bags. My youngest also prefers them over a washcloth and soap for her skin care regimen.
Selfie Stick is a must for all those Instagram worthy selfies.
Again, thanks to Facebook and Pinterest, most of the girls want to play around with fun artistic nail designs. Nail stencils, stampers, rhinestones, and Dotting Nail Pens are trending pretty big right now.
A Cute Cosmetic Case to tuck into their backpack was another great suggestion.
