Quirky Gifts For Teens With Qwerkity

Presents for teenage kids are notoriously hard to buy for, with my fourteen year old son being the hardest of all.

I should be happy with the fact that he rarely asks for anything but when it comes to birthdays and Christmas it can be a real pain as I don’t even know where to start.

I always end up with the usual video games, smelly sets and chocolate which gets boring for me to buy so must be really boring for him to receive.

Luckily inspiration came my way in the form of a great website that has a whole host of different gifts for teenagers  that would please even the trickiest customer!

Archie’s room is usually awash with piles of rubbish and dirty clothes so what would fit in more perfectly then a stool disguised as a stack of pizza boxes.

The incredible cardboard stool pizza box is a super cool stool make of corrugated cardboard that fits together in nine easy steps.

It is just as easy to fold up as it is to assemble and can hold up to an unbelievable 200kg.

This would be such a cool addition to any teens room and has been a real talking point for all his friends.

Let’s just hope he doesn’t decide to recreate one with real boxes!

Boohoo Kids Spring/Summer 17

Around Christmas time last year I was introduced to the newly launched children’s wear range from Boohoo.

We reviewed some lovely pieces for number three who was really taken with the on trend, affordable clothes they had to offer.

Last week I was asked to the press preview of their spring/summer 17 collection that in my opinion has improved even more than last season.

My attention was immediately drawn towards the girls section that had a real festival vibe to it.

There were lots of floaty, floral prints, off the shoulder tops and dress and plenty of sparkle that always goes down well with the girls.

Embroidered pieces and lace detailing are key this season and Boohoo has incoperated this within their range alongside simple classics such as Breton stripes that are always a wardrobe staple.

My daughter has a real love for shoes…I can’t think where she gets it from!

Boohoo have a great range of strappy sandals that will be perfect for the much longed for warmer weather and sparkly pumps that will be real eye catchers.

Next up was the boys and they certainly haven’t been left out here.

Summer brights for the pool and stand out t-shirts and shirts for those long summer days are a plenty.

If your boys like something a little more neutral then there is a great range of cosy t-shirts and shorts in muted green and beige tones that are bang on trend whilst remaining wearable which is all that more important when thinking about boys.


The shoes range from more formal styles to everyday trainers that fit perfectly with the clothing that Boohoo have pieced together.

  

Number three was super excited to see all the new pieces and already has a long list for her summer wardrobe and j will certainly be trying out some clothes for the boys this time.

I would love to know what you all think!

Kids Clothes Arrive At Boohoo:Review

Boohoo has made waves with the online shopping world for a fair while now. 

Their high fashion clothing at affordable prices has gone down really well and as someone who has bought from them before I can vouch for this myself.

When they asked me to try out the new Boohoo Kids range I knew there would be one very happy little girl that would be more than happy to give their range a try.

I was a little worried that the range would be a mini version of the adult clothing but I was really pleased when I found a good selection of age appropriate clothing that was still bang on trend.

We looked through pages of cold shoulder dresses, skinny jeans in a variety of colours, sloganed tees and sweatshirts, cute bombers, fur trimmed parkas and so much more.

Number three opted for a pair of high waisted jeans with a sloganed sweatshirt and bomber jacket to match.

The light grey sweatshirt was super cosy and a perfect fit. The real pull for her was the ‘Instaglam’ slogan which would be perfect for any social media addict such as her!

The high waisted jeans were a little on the big side as she prefers a tighter fit; but being a real skinny minnie this is something we always have issues with.


Here favourite item was the very versatile bomber jacket. The zip detail and orange lining took me back to the 90’s which has come right back round with this trend.

For me Boohoo kids have got it just right for my preteen with trendy, wearable clothes at great prices.

She is already back on their site adding bits to her Christmas list!
