Holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means...having to start thinking about what gifts to get the special teens in your life.

Here at Current, we're constantly engaging our teenage audience to find out more about what interests them. From the numerous conversations we've had with our Current teens, we've managed to form a pretty good understanding about their likes, dislikes and even their favorite brands.

So if you're looking to surprise the beauty-loving teen in your life with some nice gifts, here are a few ideas to help you get started:

For the teen who's into self-care: Bath bombs

Lush-bath-bombs-1
The school term is coming to an end and that means teens are busy preparing for their final projects and exams. With so much going on, it's important for them to manage that stress. One way they can do that is by having a good self-care routine, and for some teens that could be taking a hot shower or enjoying a nice bubble bath. Help the teen in your life unwind by gifting them these Lush bath bombs — they smell amazing and are sure to put in your teen in a good mood.

Lush bath bombs, $26.95

For the teen who's always shopping for beauty items online: Current

Card-BlackFront-2
Beauty e-retailers are a treasure trove for finding awesome beauty buys. But teens who want to shop from Ulta or Sephora websites need a card to shop online, and that means they need to keep borrowing your card every time they want to buy something.

As a parent, it's inconvenient to keep having to lend them your card for the smallest purchases. Also, since your teens are using your card they won't be able to monitor how much they are really spending.

Current lets your teen shop online for the best beauty buys

Current is a debit card and app for teens that helps them to earn, save and spend. They can learn how to manage their money through tracking their balances or doing chores to earn allowance. With a card of their own, they'll want to think twice before blowing all that money on makeup and beauty products.

Current, $36/year
