Let’s start with the perfect gift for every teen, a new set of summer pyjamas from Peter Alexander. If she's into sport, what’s not to love about sneakers from rebel or a visor from Lorna Jane to tackle the summer rays. Plus, you will get some extra gratitude from her parents for being so sun smart! Perhaps she’s a bit of a beach bum? Cotton On Body have you sorted with a wide range of bikinis, which you can pair with a crisp beach towel from Bed Bath N' Table. Take a different appraoch and get them prepared for the new school year with a diary and pen from kikki.K, or last but not least, what teen doesn’t love a new phone case from JB Hi-Fi or makeup from Kiss 'All About Beauty'.

Let’s start with the tech lovers, whether he's into gaming or simply loves listening to tunes you can’t go wrong with ear buds from JB Hi-Fi or Smart Phone Karaoke from Mr & Mrs Jones.

If he's into his sports brands, spoil him with a fresh pair of shoes or a t-shirt from rebel. Or perhaps gift him with some cool and quirky games to play with his mates over the Summer, such as the Tumbling Tower from Seed or Finger Weightlifting games from Mr & Mrs Jones.
