A hydrating and scented lip balm made from natural shea butter perfectly packaged for teens in a shiny pinky-purple metal lip gloss tube. Smells of blackcurrants, and it’s vegan too. It’s from Two Ducks, in St John’s, Woking.
If you could give her the moon and stars you would right?! These triple star earrings from I Candi Rocks are gold plated over sterling silver. They’re at The Gate Boutique in Guildford.
Tie dye for
Warm and cool. Can’t ask for more than that, right?! This cashmere tie dye beanie nails both. It’s at Courtyard boutique in Guildford.
The perfect gift for the eco-conscious teen, these cross-body bags are as sustainable as they are stylish. And the classic style means it’s a keeper. The Morphbag cross-body bag is by Surrey-based Giovanna Sessi-Knott and come in six colour combos – black and rose gold, green and metallic, blue and grey, brown and beige, blue and red, and green and yellow.
While most of the Snugglebunch designs are aimed at smaller kids, we reckon this contemporary heart watercolour print would look pretty fab on any teenager’s wall. There are also versions that include the words Happy and Love. Buy all three and mount them on the wall gallery-style.
This Ginkgo flip clock charges down when not in use, but is reactivated with touch or sound activation. When the alarm goes off in the morning, simply flip it over and it stops – and the time self-corrects to the right orientation. Clever hey! It’s from Two Ducks lifestyle store in St John’s.
Hell for leather
The perfect gift for him with a leather strap that wraps around the wrist and finishes with a stainless steel push and lock clasp. It comes in three sizes and is handmade in Hampton Court Village by Joulberry.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, they say. We say, zircon is a teenage girl’s best friend – especially when it spells out the word LOVE. This cute bracelet is at Two Ducks in St John’s, Woking.
This cute little vinyl purse is the perfect place for spare change. We love the flamingo, but it also comes in a strawberry, bunny, rainbow and ice cream designs from Acorn and Will in Camberley
