Handmade Christmas Gift Guide 2013: Gifts for teen girls.

Hi peeps,

Teenage girls are so fun to buy for! We've included a variety of ideas in this guide to cover young teens through to older teens.

Gifts for Teen Girls

1. DIY Miniature Embroidery Hoop  by Dandelyne - $142 HKD. Sonia from Dandelyne is one cool and clever lady.  Her stitched pieces are so beautiful.   We have a family portrait stitched of us, you can see it here, Sonia really captured us all perfectly. 
This little kit is a fairly new addition to Sonia's etsy shop here.  Now you can create and stitch a design of your own, go get creative!

2. A three pack of choose your own hair bobbles by Raspberry Rainbow (me!) - $99 HKD.  I give my hair bobbles as gifts all the time, I love choosing just the right colour or fabric to suit the person I am gifting to, I often spend way, way too much time choosing.  You can see my etsy shop here.

3. Set of 3 journals with lovely detailing by Buntmal - $159 HKD - etsy store here.

4. Cosmetic Bag by Cloud Love Baby - $112 HKD - etsy store here.

5. DIY tutorial: DIY Painted Tribal Bracelets - tutorial via Dismount Creative here - again, this DIY is totally achievable for even a crafty novice.

6. Clutch purse in grey and yellow (super on trend yes?!) by byMART $254 HKD- etsy store here.
