Gift Cards And Money
Amazon Gift CardsThe most requested gifts for teen girls is money or gift cards. What teenage girl doesn’t love a wad of cash or gift cards to shop with?
Amazon gift cards are the number one choice for teens. They can choose from hundreds of thousands of products to find the gift that is perfect for them. Amazon gift cards can be purchased online and sent via email which is great for long-distance gifting.
A greeting card is the most traditional way to gift money. Just pick out a special card and slip some money into the envelope. My teens are at the age where they prefer me to give them money in lieu of gifts, so last Christmas I made it a little more fun. I wrapped up boxes of balloons with money inserted inside. They had to pop the balloons to get the cash.
