The relationship between an aunt and her niece is often a close one and at holiday time, an aunt gets to show how much her niece means to her by buying her special gifts.
Deciding what to get your niece for Christmas is hard sometimes because an aunt may have too many ideas to choose from. Of course you are going to spoil her by overindulging her in gifts her parents might not buy her but sometimes it can be difficult to choose the perfect gift.
My nieces are in a fun age to buy for. The stress of chasing down the hottest toy trend is several years back now that they are both in their teenage years.
The younger of my two nieces is sixteen. First on my list for her is something from the Twilight series. Twilight series Eclipse has recently been released on DVD, so that is an easy choice for my Edward-loving niece. There are no limits as far as Twilight-themed gifts I can include along with the DVD. From hoodies to t-shirts to jewelry, there are lots to choose from to please a teenage girl who is a fan of the popular series.
Must-have accessories for my nieces are fingerless gloves so that they can text and keep their hands warm at the same time, of course. No matter what your niece’s style, you can find fingerless gloves in a color that she will just love!
Fur accessories are also a hot trend for this 2010 holiday season. My fashionista niece loves being in style and a cozy hooded jacket with fake fur trim is a perfect gift.
Lace is big this season and my 18 year old niece is going to love Madonna 80’s inspired lace gloves that I will be sticking into her stocking. Along with a couple of oversized cocktail gem rings, she is going to love making this a part of her personal style. For the girlie girl niece on your list, accessories that emphasize her femininity are the perfect gift.
My 16 year old niece wears a uniform to school so when the weekend rolls around, she is ready to wear her favorite style. Whether she is out with her friends or volunteering at our local animal shelter, she will be happy wearing the outfits I have picked out for her from some of her favorite stores in the mall.
Knowing my nieces’ personal styles and favorite shopping spots makes it easy to buy great gifts for them this 2010 Christmas season. Anything that I am unsure about, I get a gift receipt for so they can exchange it easily.
Whenever you buy gifts with their hobbies, lifestyle and sense of fashion in mind, you cannot go wrong when shopping for a teenage niece.
