HOW TO SHOP FOR A TEENAGER

At this age your teenager has a pretty good grasp on what they want. Sometimes the fun comes from letting them shop for themselves. Here is a list of places and tips to shop at Crabtree for your teen!

Tips:

  1. Shop for their passion. Even if it’s not something you love, your teen loves it why not make their dreams come true? Ask your teen and pay attention to what their interests are currently, and shop accordingly.
  1. Research online first. Find out all you can about a product before you head out to the mall.  Sometimes a gift works with an accompanying piece.  For example, if you buy a gaming console for your teen boy, buy the popular game or if she loves a pair of shoes find a matching top to go with it!
  1. Read the label.  If there is a lot of care that goes into maintaining your gift, consider helping your teen out.  For example, an expensive pair of suede boots may need a suede cleaner in their stocking.
  1. Pick up a magazine. Sometimes inspiration may come from looking in fashion magazines to see what your teen may want to wear.

PS. Try this simple holiday shopping tip: Shop for something they want, something they need, something to read and something to wear and you will not go wrong.
