    Default Christmas presents ideas

    I'm pretty sure I come here every time I need an idea for Christmas present ideas!

    I need ideas for a 15 year old boy and 16 year old girl. I'll need to post it as well. They live in rural qld so if it's gift cards it can't be to a specific shop because they won't be able to use them easily.

    Also my step mum loves those (don't be offended by my description lol) hippie/ boho floaty pants and tops. The colourful ones. Does anyone know where to buy them at a reasonable price. I'm happy with Facebook pages. Happy to buy online just don't want to spend a fortune.

    Thank you!!

    Do they have iPads or iPods? An iTunes gift card would be good.

    Do they have a cinema in their local area you can buy tickets for?

    I would also look at visiting a place like City Beach and check out their purses/ wallets, drink bottles/ school stuff/ summer accessories.

    For the girl maybe pay a visit to a place like Lovisa?

    Maybe some new release DVDs?

    They have iPhones but only use them for the Internet. They don't seem to listen to music and all that too much.

    There's a very small cinema but it's actually really horrible there lol

    That's great. Thanks! I'll have a look! I live in rural nsw so don't have many options for shopping here lol

    For the girl

    * something from Kikki K
    http://www.kikki-k.com/

    or Typo

    http://cottonon.com/AU/shop-by-brand/typo/

    Clothes - my girls love clothes from Factorie and they sometimes have great sales:
    http://www.factorie.com.au/

    They also like Ally
    http://www.allyfashion.com/shop/

    Sometimes ValleyGirl
    http://www.valleygirl.com.au/

    Occassionally ICE has some okay stuff
    http://www.icedesign.com.au/

    Supre (can be lucky and find good stuff here sometimes)
    http://www.supre.com.au/

    * OPI nailpolish (bit exxy) but my girls prefer it over any other brand
    * Lip Gloss or some other type of makeup. My girls like brands like Napoleon, Benefit as gifts as they can't afford to buy them out of their own money. They are expensive and it depends on your budget. I found this at Myer for $29

    For the boy, if he is into geeky things, you may find something on here:

    Just keep in mind that the iTunes cards can be used to purchase iPhone apps or even to watch movies. They're quite handy for anyone with an i device.

    As for the hippy/boho stuff, ebay would probably be your best bet if you want to find affordable items.

    I also thought maybe something gadgety like a portable phone charger or a portable speaker that works from Bluetooth?

    A bit old fashioned but what about a grown up board game?

    Magazine subscription?

    Thanks heaps! These are great!!
    Unfortunately the boy is not tech savvy. He's actually hopeless with technology. ALWAYS breaking phones etc.

    He thinks he's a total 'cowboy' 😒 has horses etc.

    Maybe a Prepaid Visa card, so they can shop online?

    The pre paid visa is actually a good idea.

    Only thing is if I buy a present for one is feel bad buying a gift card for the other...
