Birthday presents fit for a teen....

Becky my teen is ridiculously hard to buy for....She has all the clothes she needs, she isn't really into make up and beauty stuff and she doesn't really have any hobbies unless you count playing Minecraft, playing cards and watching YouTube videos....

All she has asked for is a new scooter, Google credit and a couple of books that a couple of YouTubers have written so I took to Amazon....

Land Surfer Adult 360 Degree Fixed Bar Push Pro Stunt Trick Scooter - £31.99
Caspar Lee Book - £8.00
The Scrapbook of My Life by Alfie Deyes - £7.00

Then Amazon helped me out a little....At the bottom of my basket it said "Customers Who Bought Items in Your Basket Also Bought".....That gave me a lot of ideas!

You Tube Cushion Cover - £2.99
Miranda Sings pencil/make up case - £4.99
Haters Back Off T-shirt - £9.97
Sprinkle of Glitter Diary 2017 - £9.99
Emoji Bedding Set - £10.90
Miranda Sings Haters Back Off Poster - £4.99
Emoji Poo Slippers - £11.80
Emoji Poop Shaped Stuffed Pillow - £2.69
Now That's What I Call Music! 94 - £13.00
Minecraft: Story Mode for the XBox - £12.00
Philips Headphones - £25.99
Pre-ordered Joe & Caspar Hit The Road USA - £13.50

The one thing Becky has been into lately is playing cards.....She loves card tricks and games and I suppose it get's her away from electronics. I'm not too happy that when she leaves school she wants to be a professional card player or a croupier working in a casino! I don't want to encourage it but there are worse professions to be in....I have found a couple of presents ideal for her.

300 Piece Poker Chips Set - £15.89
Marvin's Magic Fifty Greatest Card Tricks - £9.99

Becky's birthday falls on a Saturday this year so she is looking forward to a day out too....Eek! I'm thinking bowling/cinema and a meal.....Teens are such hard work. lol


  1. Oh that card trick set looks really cool! LOL bowling, cinema and a meal is always a safe bet to go for! Hope she has a great birthday when it rolls around x

    1. I can't wait to have a look and play with all her
      Thank you x

  2. My teen is about to turn 17 and my boy about to hit 13. Thanks for the tips!

  3. I LOVE the idea of the poker set as a gift, I think I'd actually like to receive that one myself! Also, I reckon my eight year old would love the poop-emoji slippers, I can imagine a LOT of laughter when she opened those!

  4. Love the idea of a poker set for a teenager. Anything that might encourage a pack of them to get together and actually interact is a great idea. #pocolo

  5. My nieces always played cards with a poker set when they were growing up - and younger than Ellie, I think it was some kind of currency in their household, and definitely worth using every trick in the book to get kids to help out. Hope she had a great birthday and enjoyed all her presents, and the outing. Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo

  6. I love that she is interested in cards, and like you say at least she is away from electronic devices. My son has recently turned 14 and I swear they get harder to buy for as they get older. Love those poop emoji slippers lol x
