The Tween Dreams Holiday Gift Guide!

Yes, it's TIME! It's the end of November, so if you're smart, you should consider starting your shopping soon!

A tip: You should make a wish list to avoid the worst gifts ever! (Just to give people an idea of what you want!)

What to get a sibling:

You want to get your siblings something not too big, yet not too small. A CD you know they want is always something they'll enjoy. DVD'S are also a great idea! If you are kind of stuck, a gift card to somewhere you KNOW they like is always a good gift, but do make sure they shop there!

The Tween Dreams Gift Card Policy: When getting someone a gift card, make sure it's to somewhere useful for that person. If you don't know them that well, try to be very general: either get one to the mall or the bookstore. Also, if you want to get one from a store you THINK they'll like, only make it about $25, unless you're really sure.

What to get a friend:

Gifts among friends should be very small, just a little something to show you care. 15$ is my maximum, but if you're really close friends, you can go just a BIT over. Stick with homemade jewellery, or some Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers. Same should go for boyfriends.

What to get a relative:

I would suggest asking one of their parents or siblings before going ahead, but think about what they like. Pick out a bracelet for a female cousin. For your aunt and grandmother, silverware is always useful (kind of boring, though). Money or gift cards are always useful, as well. Never get anyone perfume or cologne, unless you know which one they like. If you know their taste, clothes are okay, but be very specific. Think of where they shop. Same goes with purses.

What to give a parent:

This is probably one of the most important.  CD'S are useful for everyone, so consider that as an option. DVD boxed sets are great for your father, but for your mother, candles and lotions from fancy bath shops are great. Try to spend roughly the same amount on each parent, because they are equally great! Same should go with siblings, if you have more than one. 

So, I hope this was helpful! Let me know what YOU want for Christmas. Good luck shopping for all this! : )
