Bebe was one of the IT brands when I was in high school, and as you’ve seen, everything old is new again. And that includes Bebe. They’re having a total resurgence and are one of the hot brands among teens and young adults. The Bebe 7255 Sunglasses are going to be a pair they reach for again and again. The classic square frame shape is so flattering for so many face shapes, and the little bit of rhinestones call out to the classic Bebe tanks. The arms of the sunglasses, however, have lots of jewels and are so sparkly. Of course, they have full UV protection, and come in a fabulous hard case that’s designed to protect your new shades.
Oui Juicy Couture Play Bloomin Babe EDP
Juicy Couture’s Oui Juicy Couture Bloomin Babe Eau de Parfum is a fun fragrance that’s designed to layer with others in the Play collection but can totally be worn alone. It starts as a sweet lemon-citrus scent and as it dries down, it becomes more grounded. This is a wonderful scent for the teens or young woman in your life, but it’s also great if you like a lighter, more playful fragrance.
R Riveter Josie Backpack
Small backpacks and crossbody bags are one of the top fashion trends. The Josie backpack is small and compact, and goes great with so many outfits. It’s perfect for a day on the town, a vacation trip, or a journey through the great outdoors. The pockets let you keep everything organized and accessible, while the nylon is easy to clean. As with all R. Riveter bags, the Josie backpack is made by military spouses
Rainbow Optx Sunglasses
These sunglasses from Rainbow Optx are so fun. They come in these wildly bold colors and all the most popular frame styles like the classic Wayfarer, Cat’s Eye, Aviators, and so many more. Each different color is said to have different mood boosting benefits. The site even has a quiz to take that helps you decide which colorway is best for the mood you want. Rainbow Optx sunglasses filter out 100% of UVA/UVB rays, too and come in a pouch with a microfiber cloth. They’re perfect for festivals, hitting the slopes, or just having a really good time.
Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner Set
When I was a tween and teen, I would get big bottles of my favorite expensive shampoo and conditioner. It’s a great tradition that gives them something useful, especially if you follow the 4 gifts or 5 gifts rule. Pureology has several varieties of shampoo and conditioner sets that are perfect for gift giving, and formulated for all hair types. These shampoo and conditioner sets also come with a travel sive of the Color Fanatic Multi Tasking Spray.

Try the Lip Milk, which is a totally different sensation for a lip treatment, or the Full Body Nectar Serum to help combat winter dry skin.

Jimmy Choo Miniatures Collection
When I was a teen, I started collecting miniature bottles of fragrances. They were cute and looked just like their large counterparts. Even better, these perfume miniatures were affordable and readily available. The Jimmy Choo Miniatures Collection is the perfect way to get someone started on their collection, or to introduce them to the Jimmy Choo fragrance family. The set contains 5 miniatures – Illicit, Illicit Flower, L’Eau, Jimmy Choo, and Fever. This is also a great set to use as small gifts like table settings or as stocking stuffers.
IGK Color Depositing Mask
Everywhere you look, you see vibrant colored fantasy hair. It’s a great look, but it takes a lot of commitment, and quite the investment in time, money, and devotion to the lifestyle. For a better, less permanent option, try the IGK Color Depositing Mask. This deeply conditioning hair mask leaves behind a vibrant color that’s demi-permanent. That basically means longer temporary color. It washes out in about 10 washes, so there’s no long-term commitment. It’s the perfect way to try out bold and fun hair colors, without the long-term obligation.
