Teen Birthday Ideas

Anisten turned THIRTEEN a few days ago… how is that even possible!?!? She is my bargain shopper, my saver, my organizer… so naturally she didn’t have much of a list for me. If you saw my stories, she wanted to go around to all of the places that give away free/discounted things on her birthday and get them all! You guys gave us a great list and I consolidated all the ideas HERE! If this is a bucket list item for you, make sure you sign up well before your birthday for their email subscriptions though haha, we ran into some trouble there. Despite all the fun we had hopping store to store, we got her some fun gifts too! Here’s some ideas for a teen…

Free People Dupe Jacket – Anisten is my saver, budgeter, dupe finder. She fell in love with my Free People jacket and quickly found this dupe and has been wanting it ever since!

Cordless Curling Wand – We got Anisten the Gimme Beauty one, but it’s pricey. Conair makes a whole collection of cordless hair tools available on amazon that have good reviews and is less expensive. The curling iron can be used as a wand or as a typical iron. I can’t speak to the quality myself, but the review make it seem like a safe bet + amazon’s return policy is great!

Hair Tinsel – Anisten and her friends will have so much fun with this. This kind can be washed, dried, straightened, curled, etc and still last a couple of weeks! 🙂

Strawberry Dopp Kitt – These are perfect for makeup, charging cords, etc. Anisten is the queen of organization (taking right after Braun) and loves stuff like this! Baggu has so many cute options for everything.

Screen Protector – We use these glass screen protectors… they sometimes break but thankfully our normal phone screens haven’t broken since we started using them (except when Emery’s fell off a balcony hah).

iPad Sleeve – These puffy iPad sleeves are the cuuuuutest. It’s made by Baggu. They have a ton of options. She has the mini iPad so the 13″ sleeve fit it perfect with a case on and an apple pencil on the side. These astrology iPad sleeves are also so dang cute! And I just saw these AirPods cases, dang it. She would’ve loved this too!

Gua Sha Tool – I thought this ying yang one was so cute! These are a massage/drainage tool for your face to reduce puffiness or any discomfort. We all use them here, Anisten wanted her own.

Sweat Set – Anisten is alllll about comfort and a good sweat set made her whole birthday complete haha! I grabbed these wide leg sweat pants and this sweatshirt from old navy so she had the matching set. Size down in the bottoms, but true to size in the top (it’s cropped fit).

Get Back Necklaces + Ring – I had never heard of this company, but they make St. Christoper coin jewelry to carry on traditions from travelers + beach-goers from the 60s as a symbol for good luck + going steady. The jewelry is super cute, I grabbed a few necklaces and a ring for Anisten. They have a pretty big selection of various size coins which was nice. I got her one of each size so she can decide which she likes the best for the future!

Smiley Slippers – Emery got these for her birthday and Anisten loved them, so I grabbed her a pair too!

Nike Pro Shorts – Anisten wears the XXS size in these. They’re among her favorite sports/active wear stuff.

Photo Journal – Both of my girls LOVE their polaroid camera. This fun little journal is designed to store all the pictures taken in it with space to write about them too. If your teen doesn’t already have a camera this one is awesome – and don’t forget film! This printer is also awesome, you can print smartphone pictures to your film on this. Urban Outfitters is the best one stop shop for all thing polaroid.

Earrings -The girls both love these small ones and these huggies from madewell

Activewear Set – Anisten really loves Old Navy activewear line… I grabbed this sports bra + these leggings for her! 🙂

Gift Card – since stores are soooo picked over right now, I made a cute little coupon for two outfits for her also. It’s a win, win because we will get to spend some extra time together when she wants to cash in on it!
