Christmas Gift Guide // Teenagers // Siblings // Holidays With Hannah

With this gift guide I decided to pick 5 areas for Teens & Siblings as around that age they usually like money/vouchers to go shopping themselves. There will be three gifts in each area and a set for girls and boys.

I would love to know what you are getting up to this Christmas, if you've brought anything you've seen on here, excited to share present, makeup or decoration ideas or anything Christmassy! Message me on Twitter or Instagram or use the hashtag #HolidaysWithHannah.

As a disclaimer; I have posted links with an idea to where you can get the item(s) but it's not because that's the best price or that I'm being sponsored. I wanted to reflect all different retailers so randomly chose an item from one place, one from another and so on. Please remember prices are subjective to change which is why I haven't included them.

Beauty / Skincare

Soap & Glory Belle Of The Ball
This is a perfect gift for someone getting into skincare. It comes with a Body Wash, Body Scrub, Hand Cream, Body Polisher and a Bath Pouf. They all have such sweet scents that linger making it perfect for those still in school as most won't allow perfume. The packaging is so cute as well all you'll need to do if pop it in a gift bag, bonus!

I again picked these for those getting into skincare but might not be as adventurous. These Bath Fizzers have a lovely scent but not as lingering as the Soap & Glory set, these are more for making the skin nice and smooth. This is an exclusive scent for Christmas and it's definitely on my list this year.

Benefits No 1 Selection Box
This is the most perfect gift to give to a budding beauty lover. Benefit is one of those brands that does the best quality products for, quite high prices to a teenager. A box of samples like this lasts ages and it includes all of the best sellers of the brand. I especially love the fact you get the They're Real Mascara and the High Beam Highlighter.

Clothing / Accessories

Burgundy Faux Fur Hooded Gilet
I fell in love with this when I saw it and thought of my own friends who are in their teenage years. It's such a winter colour  and the fur hood and lining is so soft. I wanted to pick a coat but items like that for teens are tricky and thought this was a great alternative.

Polka Dot Brush Set
This is a great stocking stuffer, especially if the recipient has long hair. It's got a lovely polka dot design, the sizes of the brushes are great quality and comes with accessories.

Tan Suede Fringe Side Duffle Bag
This is a think forward gift. I think it'd be lovely for the Spring/Summer and gives her an accessory to build a look around. It's very simple and would be great to use as an outing bag or for lighter items. I wouldn't use it as a school bag because the material and size isn't right.


iMusic Pillow
Fantastic for a music lover. I tried one of these in a gadget shop and thought the music would be too loud but it isn't at all. You don't necessarily have to use it for music either, audio books would be heard just as clearly.

This is the handiest thing especially for a teenager. It charges phones, iPods, Tablets and Cameras. Great gadget for concert goes and adventure seekers! Or those who use their phone a little too much...

Amazing for girls nights and parties. Not only perfect because it's chocolate but for social butterflies that have friends round a lot or for after events parties this is lovely for them to have.

Experience Days

I went with meerkats because they are the most popular but this would be brilliant with any animal. For the budding zoologist or if she has an animal obesseion an experience like this is priceless. Ones like this involve feeding, pictures and a general meeting with animal that you may not experience anywhere else.

Vintage Afternoon Tea Bus For 2
I chose this for an older teen, or one who is a little older in taste. This is just a lovely way to get around London, see the sites and have afternoon tea at the same time. This would be lovely from a mum or auntie to spend some quality time together.

One Night Bell Tent Glamping For 2
Great to gift for her and her best friend. Glamping is Glam Camping and for the girls who like the outdoors this is a whole new experience. There are many like this that include one day, a couple of days or different tents so there is a lot of choice.

Christmas / Novelty

Definitely a girly Christmas jumper she'll love. This is something a lot of girls will feel is true and it's just a fun gift to give and have them wear over the festive day.

This is just a fun festive stocking stuffer and a bit of a giggle if she takes a lot of selfies! Would make for great pictures to look back on.

Novelty Christmas Pillow
This is great to gift early if she decorates her room over Christmas or to use next year if she wants to start. I love the expression on the dogs face as well, it makes me laugh. There are many designs but this was my favourtie. 


I know a lot of guys don't ask for skincare items but this has all the basic, necessary items that he wouldn't need anything else. This is for the body so you can always pair it with a facial skincare if you'd like. This is the Lynx Black fragrance but there are others to choose from.

This is for the older teen and is a great travel accessory if he likes to go away. This is also perfect if he's starting to look at universities and needs a travel size lot of toiletries. I chose dove as it isn't always picked by men but just as good as other leading brands. And the body wash doubles as a facial wash too! 

I love this scent. It's not over bearing and a great starter set to the boys who need a little direction in that area. Lovely size and great to put in his stocking.

Clothing / Accessories

I love Hollister, everything from there just smells amazing. I picked this for the guy who doesn't want to look like he's trying hard yet likes his brands. Hollister is very popular for 14+ and a plain sweater like this makes a great gift and you don't have to worry too much about patterns.

This was picked for 14+ teens again.  A great bag for gym kit, P.E kit or any kind of sporting team they are part of. Comes in handy for travelling too. This design is very understated yet older so it blends well and isn't considered embarrassing. 

For any age but picked this pair to show the type of print that would be great for teen guys. Items like this aren't always picked but it goes to show they come in handy, especially over the winter months!


Great for teens off to uni or that spend their summers travelling and even more perfect for younger siblings that get bored easily on rainy days.

My Scratch Map

If you know a lad who loves to travel this is a great way for him to track where he's gone and where he wants to go. It's light enough to display on the wall or comes rolled in a cardboard tube making it easy to store.

Elgento Candy Catcher

This is in a similar fashion to the fondue set I included in the girls gadgets, brilliant for his room to keep in sweets/treats and great if he has the boys round a lot.

Experience Days

Perfect for gamers. I love this idea, would never do it myself but I know my brother would love it. If you buy an experience with friends it's even better they can share some guy time and create great memories before they split for University.

I picked this for younger teen boys. I think it'd be something that would interest them at that more curious age. It also makes a great bonus day in London! It is set up by the company so there is no specific layout as it always changes making it that more surprising.

London Ghost Tour Bus For 2
In a similar experience to the Zombie Survival, a great gift for a group of friends/family but a lot less active if the Zombie one isn't their cup of tea. If they are into history you'll get a lot of that along the way too.

Christmas / Novelty

Men's Festive Socks
A fun festive stocking stuffer. I chose this because everyone gets socks at Christmas even the boys so why not give them some festive ones?

I chose this because I see them everywhere around Christmas and I think they are so hilarious and still keep the face very warm. There are many designs but I chose this one as I like the ears on them.

Mens Fair Isle Jumper
Buying a jumper for a teen boy is probably the hardest as they don't want anything too much or embarrassing which is why I chose this. The colour scheme is festive but very neutral and isn't as bright. The design is also bold enough you know it's a Christmas jumper but not too much so that they wouldn't wear it again after.

As always, thanks for reading...
