5. The Huggler

These 1 litre (standard size is 2 litre) hot water bottles have a lovely cable knit style cover and are the perfect size to help ease period pains. Hot water bottles have been scientifically proven to ease period pains and provide relief from pain, aches and cramps. Sweet gift idea for a tween or teen who is suffering.

6. Electric Heated Throw

 nightwear for teens

I’ve heard of the electric heated blanket but I didn’t know about the electric heated throw. This gorgeous velvety throw is from Lakeland and costs 1p to run for seven hours. It is machine washable and can be set to switch off at a certain time. Love it and I don’t think there is a teenager alive who could complain about being cold if they owned one of these!

7. Selfie iPhone case

Definitely one of my top teen gifts! This phone case doubles as a selfie light and power bank with an adjustable warm LED glow. The phone case fits onto the iPhones 6, 7 and 8 with silicon bumpers to protect the phone from the inevitable dropping on a night out! Christmas presents for teenagers who love taking a selfie!
