Starting November to the end of December we are in a very busy “gift giving” period. There are of course the holidays. Along with holiday shopping, we also have two members of our family, and quite a bit of friends with November birthdays to shop for including my daughter’s friends. It’s time to think of some gifs for teens.

We celebrated my daughter’s 11th birthday a couple days ago and one of her best friends brought her a fragrance gift set. My daughter was so overjoyed with this gift that I noticed we are almost in teenager territory with her haha. She knows how much I enjoy putting together gift baskets and asked me if we could make holiday gift baskets for her friends this year. I’ll definitely do that and will include fragrance gift sets.


Of all our senses, sense of smell is the most powerful. Sometimes you can identify people with the fragrances they use; a note or aroma of a particular fragrance can bring up so many memories. I absolutely love being gifted fragrances for this reason, and enjoy gifting them to loved ones myself. I think tweens, and teens love receiving fragrance; it is such a girly thing to own one.


We went to Walgreens with my daughter to purchase a gift set to include in our holiday gift basket for one of my daughter’s good friends. It’s so easy to gift a memory with COTY Fragrance Gift Sets. They have so many different fragrance options. ( Find COTY Fragrance Gift Sets Here )


My daughter’s friend is a huge huge fan of Beyonce. We were able to find Pulse Fragrance gift set by Beyonce at Walgreens. It has a really cool bottle, and the set comes in a neat, cute box.


My daughter and I added a travel mug, notepad, hair ties, a candy cane, and yummy smelling hand soap to the mix to complete our holiday gift basket. We used a big red basket lined with cotton, white, Santa type fabric.

No gift basket is complete without a big bow. 🙂 We chose a purple polka dot wired ribbon to tie a big bow over the handles. I like to have a common element in my gift basket pieces, and here we took our lead from color purple.


This is the aisle you would find COTY Fragrance Gift Sets .

    That’s such a great idea. The basket looks adorable. Thanks for the tips.

      So happy you like dear! Based on my daughter’s reaction I highly recommend fragrance as a teen’s gift :-)) Happy Thursday. XOXO, Elif

    I have been a Beyonce fan from the start of her career. At adolescent ages, girls usually get dazzled by celebrities and try to be exactly like them, forgetting to be themselves. This gift gives teens a part of their idols, instead of for say a $100 autographed picture. I heard that there is a new Ariana Grande perfume and everybody at my school is dying to get it.

      You are the best! Love that you gave us an actual teenager perspective. Thanks so much for the bday gift btw; you guys inspired me to put together this basket. <3 XOXO, Elif

    My daughter is a huge Katy Perry fan, so that set is on her list too! But her favorite perfume is Abercrombie. Maybe we will try the Beyonce this year! Susan

      Too funny I was just looking at the Katy Perry set the other day as an alternative gift basket idea. (for a different friend of my daughters) Pulse from Beyonce smells lovely, more like a citrusy scent and I love citrus! Try a spray. I bet as my daughter gets older we’ll have many more favorites. 🙂 Happy Thursday dear. XOXO, Elif

    When I was little I loved getting the roller-ball fragrances. It truly is the perfect gift for a teen girl or boy. #client

    • Theboxqueen

      I do remember the roller-ball fragrances and the excitement surrounding them. 🙂 I am excited to gift fragrance to the teens we know this year. Happy Friday. XOXO, Elif

  • Cheryl

    Such a fun gift for girls. I would have loved a gift basket like this as a tween/teen. 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      I know right? I would have loved one as a teenager/tween myself. Hope you are having a lovely holiday season Cheryl. <3 XOXO, Elif
