Teenage girls can be a very difficult breed to shop for, which is why I prefer getting them gift cards as opposed to hearing how bad my selections were for Christmas presents. However, knowing what type of gift cards are the right selections for your teenage girl is another matter altogether. Here is a list of the 5 best gift cards to get for your teenage girl, that they can use just about anywhere.
1. Visa Gift cards (www.giftcards.com)
The Visa logo means one thing: freedom. To a teenage girl that is extremely important. Teenage girls want an opportunity to spread their wings and shop wherever they choose, whenever the mood to shop strikes them. Having a Visa logo on their gift card is a perfect solution to this desire.
Not only is a Visa gift card a good choice for your teen, but the Visa logo means protection for you, the purchaser. Should your teenage girl loose or misplace her gift card, you can have the funds ensured by Visa, which offers some very serious peace of mind. Additionally, you can reload your teenage girl’s pre-paid Visa gift card for other occasions down the road.
2. Movie Gift cards (www.fandango.com)
Going to the movies and hanging out with friends is a favorite pastime for many teenage girls. Go to Fandango and preorder tickets for her in denominations of up to $100 so she can enjoy the movies again and again, and she can pre-order tickets to the latest blockbuster whenever she’d like.
The added benefit for you is that the purchase of Fandango gift cards will add to your rewards points helping you earn extra dollars toward seeing movies all your own.
3. Sephora (www.sephora.com)
With thousands of cosmetics under one roof, teenage girls love Sephora, and they will love a Sephora gift card. Even if there isn’t a store nearby, these gift cards can be used at the Sephora store online so that your teenager can shop to her heart’s content.
4. Claire’s Boutique (www.claires.com)
These tiny accessory shops are like a Mecca for teenage girls. Everything from tiaras to cell phone charms can be found in these accessory stores and teenage girls love it! Buy in store or online, and she can shop to her heart’s content.
5. Ticketmaster Gift Certificates (www.ticketmaster.com)
The next time her favorite band comes into town, instead of her begging you to shell out concert money, direct her to her Ticketmaster gift certificate. With offerings for every venue in every city in America she’s sure to find the perfect event to attend with you or with friends.
Taking the mystery out of shopping for your teenage girl is a lot easier when you consider how a teenage girl thinks and what type of gift card would be best. Even if you and your teen don’t see eye to eye on many other things, at least you know you can agree on gift cards this Christmas!
