kiss naturals craft kits

Kiss Naturals all natural craft kits for kids give kids the ability to make natural beauty and personal care creations at home. I loved craft kits as a little girl but once I hit middle school many of them felt too young for me, while adult kits were too complex for me to do on my own. Kiss Natural sets are great for that in-between stage because they are designed to be used by kids as young as 6 but aren’t limited to being used by children because the end creations (soap, hair chalk, lipgloss, etc) are useful even for teens and adults. The kits are priced from about $10-$25. Check out my whole Kiss Naturals Craft Kits review for more info. Use the code PROMO2 to get free shipping if you order $45 or more.

Sleepphones headphones with super thin, soft headphones inside so you can comfortably listen to music while you sleep!

SleepPhones would have been a dream come true for me as a teenager. They are unique headphones that are really thin and flat and are placed inside of a soft headband. You line the headband up with your ears and you can hear the music perfectly but nobody else in the room can hear anything at all. The music is crisp and clear yet soft making it ideal for listening while drifting off to sleep. You can see my full SleepPhones review from 2013 for more detail. They’d make a great gift for music loving teens or adults.

voloom mgg

Voloom is the first hair volumizing iron.  It is a versatile tool that can help with flat, fine, thinning, aging hair. It was designed to quickly and easily add volume to your hair. Voloom is different from a flat-iron, crimper and curling iron. Rather than pulling it through to the ends of your hair; you simply use it near the scalp on the underneath layers of your hair. Voloom takes you from “flat to full and fabulous in minutes.” For my complete review of Voloom, please click here.

This Girl Is Different teen book

Peachtree YA Books. Peachtree has a great section of young adult books that will appeal to tween and teenage girls who enjoy reading. My niece likes to read and I picked out The Theory Of Everything and This Girl Is Different both by J.J Johnson. The Theory of Everything is about a teen girl whose best friend died in a car accident and her attempts to “pull herself together” over a year later as she is still struggling with the loss of her friend. This Girl Is Different is about a home-schooled girl who tries out public school for the first time in her life as a high school senior. It’s designed to spark discussions about authority abuse and crossing boundaries which are relevant topics in almost any teens life.

Just Dance 2015 video game great gift idea for teens

Just Dance 2015. Both of my teenage nieces have been following the Just Dance line of games for a few years now so I know the new 2015 game will be their new favorite this Christmas. If you aren’t familiar with the line, it’s a game released by Ubisoft that is available on Wii, Wii U Playstation 4, Xbox one, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. To play, players dance along as instructed making it a fun way to exercise. The 2015 game features hits by Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, One Direction, Katy Perry and other top artists and songs. My nieces love playing this game at birthday parties and sleep-overs so it’s a great game to pick up before a teenage party as well.
