Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teens
Once again I have picked out some fabulous gift ideas for teens – with a stocking stuffer twist! Check out 10 top stocking stuffer picks for teens, all affordably priced and totally guaranteed to make ’em smile. Or even squeal!
Maybelline Lip Studio Color Blurs – $11.99 each
First up, if she loves to colour her lips then she’ll adore the bold pops of colour available in this 10-colour collection from Maybelline. These unique pencils contain a brilliant yet matte lip colour at one end, and a cushion smudger at the other. Apply the lip colour right at the centre of the lips, then use the smudger to ‘melt’ the colour everywhere else. With vivid hues of red, orange, pink, and plum, tossing a few of these in her stocking is a great way to put a smile on your teen’s face.
Bop It Micro Series Game – $14.99 @ Toys “R” Us, Loblaws and Amazon.ca
They may not have time to sit down for family game night anymore, but your teens will still get a kick out of this pint-sized version of their favourite childhood mental agility tester. With three actions to react to – twist it, bop it, pull it – your teen will be challenged to increasingly difficult and long sequences that’ll test their reflexes and coordination. It’s a cool time waster when they need a break from studying.
The Waterford Girl Epsom Salts + Buttermilk – $4 each
Teens are definitely not too old for bath time – in fact it can be just the way to unwind after a stressful day at school or a hard hockey practice. Epsom salts are renowned for their anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties – but you add in the luxury of buttermilk and you’ve got a heavenly recipe for a bath designed to make you feel good from the inside out. The Waterford Girl has four yummy packs to choose from, including Almonds and Oatmeal and I Love Coconuts.
Shut The Hell Up Gum – $1.95 @ Rolo
For the smart aleck in the family, gift them this hilarious package of cinnamon-flavoured gum. Yeah it’s the case that’s mostly special, but it’s still a funny gift idea your teen can whip out of their pocket or bag anytime one of their buddies starts ribbing them. Just make sure they don’t try and flash the pack at you – or warn them they risk losing their sweet sticks of gum altogether.
Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly – $6.95+ @ Lush
If you’ve never tried one of Lush’s shower jellies before, you’re in for a treat. These jello-esque shower gels are semi-solid. Break off a chunk, lather it up in your hands or a body pouf, and get scrubbed up while enjoying a fruity explosion of star anise, apple and grape juices. The glittery stars are an extra festive touch for this fun stocking stuffer idea your teen will covet.
Epicure Hot Chocolates – $15 each
After taking the bus home, a warm cup of hot cocoa is just what the doctor (unofficially ordered). Epicure has three decadent options that parents will love as much as their teens. Try the fruity Raspberry-infused mix for a gourmand taste. Or go for a Dark & Dreamy chocolate variety for an intense drink. Does your teen need some energy after a holiday party with friends? Their crisp Peppermint Matcha blend will put some serious pep in your step with naturally occurring caffeine.
Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Powder (Travel Size) – $26 @ Sephora
If you have a little makeup maven in your household, she’s probably mentioned Hourglass at some point. This hotly coveted brand is best known for their luminous face powders, like this petite compact in ‘Dim Light’, which is a soft, neutral beige with a hint of peach. If you aren’t prepared to spring for a full-sized powder for your teen, this pint-sized version is a great way to introduce her to this luxe brand.
Scratch Box – $19.95 @ Danna Bananas
Have a budding DJ in the house? This fun gadget can let them test their scratching skills. First, record the sound of your choice – it can be you singing, a family pet yowling, or even a favourite song clip. Then, use the Scratch Box to add forward, reverse, and repeat scratch sound effects. It’s a neat little gadget that your teen can prove their skills on before moving ahead with a full-fledged turntable.
SensatioNail Color Elite Artificial Nails – $13.49
Give her a salon-quality nail look without the salon prices with SensatioNail’s super easy to use faux nails. Available in a range of trendy neutral tones, these press-on (or glue-on) nails are super easy to apply and include the brand’s FLEXI-FIT technology for more comfort than ever. Each kit includes 28 nails in 14 different sizes, as well as 14 ultra adhesive tabs and glue, so you can get the right fit every time. With tones range from a nude shimmer to a mint gloss, these nails are a fun gift she’ll actually use – and request again.
Superman + Batman Toques – $14.99 each @ Bluenotes
Who is your teen’s super bro? These fun toques allow you to show allegiance to your favourite superhero, with retro wording and super emblems across the front. Totally cozy but also quirky cool, these toques aren’t the only ones available at Bluenotes – I also spotted other varieties of their superhero motifs, and even more pop culture picks like Harry Potter-themed toques!
