We love Christmas! But let’s be honest, getting presents for teenagers can be so so difficult and time-consuming, so we have listed here some amazing and cool prizes we know for certain your any teenager would love to have depending on their likes and interests. We start with the Very British Board Game by Robert Dyas for those who love everything about being British, followed by The Designer Autumn / Winter Collection Nail Polish by All That Jazz. Next, we share the Quadra Academy Backpack by PPE Works. For the teen who loves having sleepover parties with her friends, the Gel-A-Peel Fashion Maker would be perfect present and finally, the Revell Avro Lancaster DAMBUSTERS Model Kit from Hobby Craft is a must as a collector’s item in your home. Some of the gifts we share in our gift guides are from Amazon, so if you are a Prime member they are able to do a one-day delivery free of charge for you, so make full use of this privilege if you can with Christmas just being a week away. We have one more final gift guide item for kids to share which will take place very very soon, so do stay tuned.
The Designer Autumn / Winter Collection Nail Polish
Looking for an autumn / winter as well as Christmas themed nail polish to present to your teenager this Christmas? Then the Designer Collection inspired by the works of iconic fashion designers by All That Jazz. They come with four colours that look great together and work well on their own too. The shades included in this set are Betsy – sparkling silver with a hint of pink glitter, Coco – a dark metallic red, Vera – a taupe, cool-toned nude and Vivienne – a striking purple with blue iridescent shimmer. You can do different layers of each colour on your nails to create a wacky effect or just one shade to create a classic look. The colours again range from three shiny to one slightly matt colour. The nail varnish once on is smooth and is quick drying. I think these are perfect for ages 15 and beyond as they are a lovely selection of colours. Priced at £11.97, you can purchase your Designer Set here.
Quadra Academy Backpack
This practical backpack is ideal as a Christmas present for a teenager. Rather than being a fashion bag, it’s a traditional backpack that is perfect as a school bag. And because it has no branding, it’s ideal if you’re not sure what the teen you’re buying for is into (and let’s face it, kids change their minds about fashion all the time). One of the best things about the bag is that it’s a decent size (18-litre capacity), so there’s plenty of room for school books, lunch and anything else teens need to carry around with them. I chose the bright royal blue backpack, but it comes in a range of other colours, including classic red and black. It appears to be sturdy, so will hopefully withstand daily use. Plus, parents will be pleased to note it features reflective strips for enhanced visibility, which is good to know, especially now the days are getting shorter. The bag also has two mesh pockets designed to hold water bottles, and a padded back panel and padded adjustable shoulder straps. And, as well as the main compartment, there is a front pocket and an inside slip pocket. My son, although not a teenager yet, gave the backpack the thumbs up. The Quadra Academy Backpack costs £12.34 and is available here. Use the code 2018WINTER between now and 31st December 2018 and PPE Work Solutions will give you a 20% discount (one use of code per customer).
Very British Board Game
This is a great family game if your family pretends to put headphones on and tries to sleep (if the person next to you began chatting on a long flight) or love awkwardly discussing your inner Britishness by playing Very British Problems! This is great to play with your family, friends or older teenager or young adult from the age of 12+, who understands silly situations that seem iconic to the British culture, which has been based on the hit Chanel 4 show. With a lot of families meeting during the Christmastime and friends getting together, this game would be great to play on a cold evening through the winter. It includes problem cards the playing board 8 game pieces a notepad and white clean scoreboard and pens. So its completely kitted out for you to play from the get-go and suitable for four to eight players at a time. The set comes with 160 very British problem cards, Playing board, 8 playing pieces, Very British notepad, 8 very British wipe-clean scoreboards and pens and Rules.

It just takes 4 easy steps, pick a colour, apply the gel on the station, swipe the gel and finally peel it off.

Revell Avro Lancaster DAMBUSTERS Model Kit 1:72
This is just a cool gift to get your teen who is into RAF or aircraft. Did you know that the Avro Lancaster was the most famous RAF heavy bomber of the 2nd World War and went into service in 1942? Well more than 7,300 of these machines were built for RAF Bomber Command. One of the most important RAF targets was the destruction of the Ruhr dams that supplied important industrial installations with power. This would give you the chance to sit down with your child and rebuilt this amazing aircraft using the model kit. This is the perfect relaxing thing to do after Christmas as you sit down as a family to recreate this. The Kit comes as a scale of 1:72 and includes almost 224 parts, once completed it will measure to the length of 295 mm. This UK made product might take a little time to build hence a lot of patience is needed but the joy you get once it is completed is immense and it will sit proudly on your mantlepiece. This collector’s item only costs £20 and you can purchase it from any HobbyCraft shop directly or order it online here.
