Reader Treats Just For You!

Harry & Holly

Muddy says: We love these sparky, fun and inspirational gifts for teen & tween girls: pom-pom jewellery, metallic make-up bags, festival glitter and much more. Be warned, you’ll be itching to treat yourself too.

Teenage girls are a special breed: feisty yet vulnerable; in need of guidance yet strong willed.

When it comes to buying them gifts, there is a tightrope to walk between over-branded, over-sexualised teeny bopper merchandise (Hello Little Mix) and not cool enough, not fun enough — too ‘my little sister would like that’ (that said, tweens will also LOVE all that Harry & Holly has to offer).

A mother of three teenage daughters, Emma Moody walks said tightrope with aplomb, curating a special collection of fun, lighthearted and, dare we say it, tasteful *morphs into own mother* accessories and gifts for teen girls: pom-pom jewellery, metallic zip bags, star spangled necklaces, festival glitter, bath bombs and sparkling stationary, in pinks, golds and stripes with not a JoJo bow in sight.

We particularly love the positive messages scrawled across some of the notebooks: “Get your goddess on,” “follow your dreams,” that kind of thing. For all the stroppy front, being a teenage girl can be tough-going and there’s nothing like a well-chosen pressie to boost that self-confidence and watch her fly.

Psst… and if you’re buying for your daughter/niece/Goddaughter take a minute to browse the jewellery for yourself, especially the delicate bangles and tassle ear-rings. After all being an adult woman can be tough-going too, nothing wrong with treating yourself now and then.
