Gifts For Tweens & Teens

Are you looking for a fun gift for your tween that is age-appropriate without being “Childish”? Then your child might enjoy the Monster High Terrifying Tattoo Roller!

Monster High Terrifying Tattoo Roller

Monster High Terrifying Tattoo Roller – $22.99

Product Description:

“These ultra-cool, nonpermanent tattoos will make your daughter look like a student from Monster High™! It’s frightfully easy and fun! Just select a tattoo roller, place it in the bone applicator, roll it in ink, and apply to your skin. There are six designs to choose from — stitches, bite marks, claw marks, scales, snake skin, and mummy wraps. Mix up the monster makeovers even more with sheets of character-specific temporary tattoos!

* Includes bone roller applicator and six tattoo rollers
* Also comes with seven tattoo sheets
* Skull ink pad features three dramatic colors
* Hours of do-it-yourself styling fun!”

Mattel provided me with a complimentary Terrifying Tattoo Roller to review, and I think this is such a fun little set! I love the little skull & crossbones with the pretty pink bow. You use the “Bone” to roll on your choice of design, and there are also temporary tattoo sheets that you can use to jazz it up. I know how much I enjoyed getting temporary tattoo sets when I was a teen – and to this day, I still love getting henna tattoos at the Saturday Market! This lighthearted set would be a winner with any girl who loves this show. In fact, I’m so confident that it would make a great gift…

Merry Christmas!

…that I’ve already wrapped it up and tucked it under my tree!

Monster High Terrifying Tattoo Roller is available on Amazon for $22.99 and can be found in brick & mortar retailers such as Toys R’ Us.

Holiday Gift Guide 2010

Gifts For Tweens & Teens



Turner Entertainment are entering me into a special blogger contest as a thank-you for writing this post!

Glory Daze is a new TBS comedy series that follows the misadventures of four college freshmen, set in the 1980′s. To help you relive your own glory days, TBS would like to give one lucky Contest Corner reader a blast from the past with a fun 80′s prize pack containing tube socks, a Rubik’s cube, a t-shirt, and 80s candy, so read on!

About Glory Daze:

GLORY DAZE follows the fun — and awkward — misadventures of four freshmen as they navigate college life, trying to figure out who they are and who they want to be. Joel (Kelly Blatz) is a typical guy next door who is determined to keep his focus on pre-med, at least until he meets his unattainable dream girl, Christie (Julianna Guill). Eli (Matt Bush) is a virgin who desperately wants to be cool. Jason (Drew Seeley) is a buttoned-downed conservative, attached at the hip to his preppy girlfriend. Brian (Hartley Sawyer) is a star baseball player struggling to get out of his father’s shadow. Together, the guys agree to check out fraternity houses, finally coming to the steps of Omega Sigma, where they are greeted by pledge recruiter Mike (Callard Harris). Intrigued by the fraternity’s cool factor, their fate is sealed. They begin a journey that will make a lifetime of memories.

Giveaway time!

Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Hotness Serenity Flat Iron Video Review

Holiday Gift Guide 2010

Gifts For Tweens & Teens

Last week, I recommended the Karmin G3 Salon Pro flat iron as a great gift pick for women. But we can’t forget the biggest group of flat iron users: Teenage girls!

Hotness Serenity Flat Iron

Hotness Serenity Flat Iron – $89.99

I can’t think of a better flat iron for a teen than the Hotness Serenity Flat Iron, with its fun pink snakeskin design. But instead of telling you how it worked, I thought I would go one step further, and just show you how it worked! This is a video that I recorded of my very first use of the iron, right out of the box. The results speak for themselves!

Any teenager would be thrilled to get such a nice flat iron for Christmas!

The Hotness Serenity Flat Iron is available on HairProductsPro.com for $89.99. I was provided with a complimentary unit in exchange for this coverage.

Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Gentle Rose Liplicious Gloss Review

Holiday Gift Guide 2010
Gifts For Tweens & Teens

Stocking Stuffers

Leslie Tyler Cosmetics

Teens can be a tough group to shop for. You want a gift that’s fun, but not too “Childish”. For many teenage girls, makeup is the perfect stocking stuffer – a cute lip gloss makes for a sophisticated, yet age-appropriate gift for budding fashionistas. So today’s gift guide pick for teens is Gentle Rose Liplicious Gloss by Leslie Tyler Cosmetics!

Gentle Rose Liplicious Gloss

Gentle Rose Liplicious Gloss – $12.00

This is the second lip gloss that Leslie Tyler Cosmetics has sent for me to try – I previously reviewed their Mint Kiss Lip Gloss back in August. Gentle Rose is a darker color, but looks natural and subtle on your lips. This lip gloss wears well and is smooth and shiny – a perfect seasonal choice because of its deeper tones. The color is versatile and will go with many different looks, which is why I think this would make a perfect gift for the fashion-forward teen on your list!
