Buying for teens is tough. It’s hard to know if something is still trendy. And even the coolest gifts can be met with a shrug. To ease the process, we’ve curated a list of trend-resistant certified gifts. While we can’t guarantee your teenager will like them (can anyone predict that, really?), we’re willing to go all-in that they won’t hate these gift ideas. (Oh, and they’re formulated with MADE SAFE certified ingredients too.)

THE ANTI FACE-WASH SOLUTION
Mother Dirt
AO+ Mist

The AO+ Mist restores and preserves the good bacteria naturally found on our skin. Live ammonia-oxidizing bacteria keep the skin’s natural ecosystem balance, which can help prevent and treat acne. No washing required – just a couple sprays.

Hair Dyes

Okay… we’re not suggesting you introduce hair dye to your teen. But if they have already started dyeing their hair, they’re likely using a conventional dye that is loaded with toxic gunk. Radico is free of known toxic ingredients and it’s semi-permanent or temporary, making it a great healthier swap.

So you might not want to give this one in front of the whole family. Seriously… don’t. But this is a gift worth giving. Most teens use conventional tampons that contain toxic chemicals and plastic. Ewww. Replace them with these completely plastic-free, organic cotton, compostable, and biodegradable ones instead.
