If I wasn’t already feeling ancient enough, my now almost teenager spent the morning explaining the trials and tribulations of Tik Tok and their new favourite anime series to me. I am in a constant process of learning what’s “cool” to them and it’s honestly exhausting.
Buying for them is even more daunting… they want unique stuff that really represents who they are and what they love. Where on earth can I find a school kit that they will love and be proud of?
Sound familiar? We know the parent of a teenager struggle is real and finding an affordable kit that they will love is paramount. We’ve asked some teenagers in our lives what Spencil designs they’re loving right now and why. Let’s check them out.
Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic (which meant a lot of teens having to spend more time at home), the whole holistic self-care trend has really taken off, particularly among teenage girls. If you’ve got a teen bugging you for crystals, candles, facemasks, a new yoga mat, or bath bombs, we can’t recommend our Boho Blue collection, highly enough for you!
Whether she needs a new Water Bottle (we love a hydrated queen), a Backpack (for her activewear of course), or a notebook (sorry we meant mindfulness journal), boho blue is the perfect design for your little new-age hippie!
Got a little grom who’s up at the crack of dawn to jump straight in the surf? Island Vibes is the perfect laid-back, beachy print for surfy teens. Get them excited about paddling back to shore and heading to school in the morning, with a school kit that reminds them of what they love doing most all day long.
The island vibe Big Cooler Bag and Chill Pack, and Water Bottle are essential to keep them hydrated and energised on those long beach days. Get them their own Drawstring Bag too, so they can easily carry their own sunscreen, surf wax and surf suit, along with their board.
Black and White Horses
Got a mad keen equestrian rider – or a teenager that’s been begging you for their own pony since day dot? Our Black and White Horses design is classic and sophisticated enough to be loved by your teens, while still celebrating one of the most magnificent and gentle creatures on earth (HORSES!).
Our Black and White Horses Book Covers are perfect to take down feedback from riding lessons or inspire horse-related day dreams in maths class. Or let them show off their passion with pride, with a Black and White Horses Backpack and Bag Tag. Everyone will know they’re a horse girl, through and through.
Celebrate and inspire their creativity with a Street Art Stationery Set, or protect their precious sketchbooks with a Street Art Book Cover. Or if your teen prefers digital art, grab them a Street Art Tech Carry Case to keep their technology and artwork safe.
Got a total fashionista on your hands? Leopard print and colour blocking have been gracing high-fashion runways since the dawn of time. You honestly can’t go wrong with our Leopard Queen collection.
Coordinated or matching ensembles were especially popular in 90s fashion (think Cher in Clueless), which is making a massive comeback in 2021. The bold, trending colours and print that grace the Leopard Queen Drawstring Bag and Backpack make it easy to coordinate with any ensemble, no matter how bold or daring. We’re simply obsessed.
So there you have it, take the guesswork out of shopping for your teen all together and get them Spencil gear they’ll absolutely adore.
It’s that easy.
