Oh, the holiday of LOVE! A day specifically created to remind those important to you about how special they really are. Now if only you could find a gift that is both affordable and “cool” to communicate this to your teenage daughter. Typically, girls in general are just hard to shop for, but teenage girls tend to be practically impossible. This is most likely due to the fact that they are in a place where they are trying to find out who they are, which means their likes and dislikes (not to mention raging hormones) are changing on the daily. Thankfully, the list below is here to try and help you find something that a young woman would enjoy getting for Valentine’s Day.
Remember: Valentine’s Day gifts do not need to be anything over the top, but instead should be a gesture that reminds them about how much awesome they bring to your life.
No matter the age, for the most part every girl likes being pampered. That is why a gift certificate to the local salon in the amount of a manicure and/or pedicure is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift (TIP: Make sure the gift card amount is based on a GEL manicure vs. a basic manicure). For extra brownie points you could also include a gift certificate for your wife/girlfriend as well. This way the two women can spend some quality time together while treating themselves on your dime. If you feel like going over the top, make it into a spa day for the two women by adding either a facial or massage to the mix. Either way, this gift will be sure to please and leave your daughter feeling both loved and pampered.
