The holidays are right around the corner and I've starting to think about what to get for the teenage girls on my list.

It's tougher as they get older. They are not as interested in toys or games. Clothes are always good but it's important to follow the trends…because it's important to teenage girls. Young women are starting to take notice of themselves and those around them.

Being a gal myself, I always appreciate gifts that are thoughtful and well planned out.

Aside from the usual gift cards to their favorite clothing stores or the Divergent or The Hunger Games hardcover series, here are a few ideas where you can’t go wrong.
