Some alternatives to just handing them a wad of cash.

Posted on

1. An awesome instant camera so they can capture all their memories.

Promising Review: "Love these cameras! I've purchased several as gifts for my kids and nieces and nephews. They are very easy to use and the pics are really cute. They have a vintage look that I love, reminds me of Polaroids from when I was growing up. The camera works great, kid friendly, and durable. It makes a great gift and the kids love them." —Amazon Customer

Get it for $59. / Available in pink, blue, black, yellow, purple, white, raspberry, and Hello Kitty.

2. A delicate little ring to mark this momentous day.

3. A print that showcases the woman they're just starting to become.


4. A makeup set with nearly everything and anything she could ever need.

Promising Review: "My daughter wanted a similar set from a more expensive brand. Then I saw this...I ordered and crossed my fingers, hoping I'd pass the cool mom test. She absolutely adores this and from now on no more Sephora just Shany.💗" —Somer Reshan Johnson

This cruelty-free kit includes 122 neutral and bright eye shadow shades (some with a matte finish, others with a shimmer), two matte face powders, eight powder blushes, eye and face applicators, and built-in mirrors. Get it on Amazon for $28.

5. Some dope AF headphones for when they want to listen to those sick-ass beats.

Promising Review: "The sound is great! Everything is crystal clear, the bass is deep but not too deep, and the only issue I have is that if I have my music on full volume everyone else can hear what I'm listening to. But I have great taste in music, so I don't consider that much of a problem." —Bretagne

Get them on Amazon for $30. / Available in a variety of floral patterns.

7. A light-up cell phone case because they're always taking selfies. Why not give them perfect lighting?
