Cute Gift Ideas For Teens

Each year at the beginning of the dance year, the dancers in company are assigned Big/Lil Sisters.  Some big sisters end up with more than one little sister.  The two little sisters are “twins”.  This year, my dancer has a big sister and a twin – their big/little sister changes each year.  Throughout the year, the sisters get little things for each other at holidays, competitions etc.  Rencently, at TJMaxx, we found adorable mason jars with quotes on them.  Will filled each one with the girls favorite candy.  They were super cute and it was an easy way to wish them luck and remind them of the wonderful year they are having.  Check out a few more ideas below.

1.  Starbucks Gift Cup – Teens and their Starbucks seem to always be a hit.  Fill the cup with favorite items such as gift cards, lip balm, nail polish, candy, hair ties or something else you know they will love.

3.  Pamper Me Please – Every girl loves a little pampering.  This would be a great end of season idea when those tired dancing feet need some love.

7.  Is The Year Over? – Want to give something at the end of the year that’s a little different, how about a looking forward to summer gift!  Who isn’t ready for a little sun and fun at the end of a busy dance year.

8.  Thank You – A little treat to say thank you for the love and support.  This is a great idea for a competition weekend as well.

  1. I love these ideas but, they are just a bit pricey for bigger party’s. I would rather something smaller to by for party favors. Nail file and nail polish one was amazing.

    • I agree. It’s not meant to be rude, but I was thinking something that you could craft yourself would’ve been more ideal. Thanks for the ideas though!!

    • I don’t think the gifts were supposed to be party favors…

  2. I was looking for things that I could make (such as cute little crafts and such). I love the ideas, but they are a bit expensive for if you made several.

  3. I think these are really good ideas. I’m making the “thank you” bags for favors for my daughter’s sweet 16 party.
