What a girl wants: Suggestions for the teen on your list

So, your teens finally get a break for the holidays. The only dilemma is what to put under the tree for them this year. Filling in for Santa and his elves, we’ve done our own snooping and selected a few local shops to cruise. As teenage girls, there were some things we just couldn’t resist.
Today’s teen is always spending and begging for money, so this year, give them a way to hold onto your precious cash. The Stitchin’ Post Gifts downtown offers many wallets, small and large, compact and stylish, ranging from $7.99 to $17.99. We approve.
To fill the empty space, there is always the option of a giftcard. We suggest Starbucks giftcards, which are great for the busy, tired teen. Easy and affordable, these can be purchased in any amount.
We loved the glitter and glam of Bijoux’s various embellished change purses, starting at $10. (125 N. Fulton St.)
As girls who thoroughly enjoy getting dressed up, we love how Old Navy provides many fashionable and reasonably priced items. Trendy wardrobe essentials include dresses for $20, coats of many types for various prices, and scarves starting at $5.
Now, you know a girl can’t live without her accessories.
So, we once again headed to Stitchin’ Post Gifts, the one-stop shop for accessories. Cute flats can be purchased for $25.99 or, for a lift, try pumps for $45.99.
Jewelry is available at various prices, and Viva-Beads are a great option. Bracelets start at $17.99, necklaces at $32.99, and cuffs at $14.99.
To keep an eye on time, snag a watch for $19.99.
Stitchin’ Post Gifts remains the perfect place for stocking stuffers (hint, hint). For a girl on the go, grab a monogrammed car tag, $29.99, or luggage tag, $7.99. To keep up with keys, purchase a beaded keychain for $6.79. We’ll make sure not to lose this one.
To keep your kid fresh and clean, Stitchin’ Post Gifts offers Burt’s Bee’s travel packs for guys or girls. We couldn’t resist these smell-good essentials costing $12.99.
As busy teens, we could sure use a Starbucks mug, $9.95, or a Life is Good mug from Stitchin’ Post, $10, for coffee on those late nights.
Or for sipping hot cocoa by the fire after the perfect Christmas.
P.S. Santa, we’ve been good this year!

Kirstin Meyerhoeffer and Rachel Kirby are interns for the Post.
