My good friend, blogger and author Sophie Hudson (also known as BooMama) has written a great gift guide for teenage girls, with whom she gets to regularly interact through her teaching job. Some fantastic and insightful gift ideas here—I’ve already decided on at least three of them for my own girls. Thank you, BooMama! –Ree
1.Work of Worth Grecian Goddess Necklace
This necklace is gorgeous. It’s also only $20. And here’s the best part. When you buy something from Work of Worth, you’re doing a lot more than just buying a Christmas present. WoW connects businesses in the developing world to the global market, and when people in the developing world can earn a fair wage, that’s good news all the way around. Can’t say enough good things about WoW’s mission and their products.
2.A book by Annie F. Downs
I think that Annie Downs is a fantastic writer, as do lots of teenage girls. Annie is relatable, she’s funny, and she’s writing about the issues that many girls care about. Sharing one of Annie’s books is a great way to bless and encourage girls who are really trying to figure out how to walk out their faith. As an added bonus, they’ll laugh themselves silly as they read.
3.Made by Trina hair ties and stacking bracelets
Hair ties have been all the rage for the last couple of years (they can even double as fun bracelets), and Trina’s are extra cute, in my opinion (plus they’re only $6). She also has some adorable stacking bracelets for $5, and you get free shipping with orders over $25. Great stocking stuffers for the stylish girls in your life!
4.Work of Worth Grecian Goddess Earrings
I absolutely adore a good hoop. And these hoops are FANTASTIC (just FYI: the matching bracelet is only $10). This is another great product from Work of Worth, so in addition to giving a gift to someone you care about, you’re also supporting a business in India that operates ethically and creates fair trade merchandise. It’s a win-win.
5.Pentel Felt Tip Sign Pen, Set of 12 Assorted Colors
If you know a girl who likes to draw or doodle or practice hand lettering, these pens will BLESS HER HEART. I mean, I recognize that there are approximately 24 teenage girls scattered across the country who don’t enjoy writing their names over and over, so obviously these pens wouldn’t be the best gift for them – but for the rest of the population? Golden.
