Christmas Gifts For Teenagers

Find the perfect gift for teenagers with the help of our Belfast Christmas gift guide. From the latest fashion and music, to stocking fillers and experiences.

Make-up Lesson

If your teenager loves all things make-up, spends hours on the web watching beauty bloggers rave about the latest trends, and has a dressing table to rival some make-up artists, then a make-up lesson is a gift that they will adore. 

Victoria Square's House of Fraser is home to brands including Charlotte Tilbury and Urban Decay, whilst Debenhams in CastleCourt is home to brands including MAC and Benefit. Simply choose their favourite brand, and arrange for a make-up tutorial to help them with that perfect contour or eyeliner flick.

Both Dirty Ruby and Karma brands are ideal for teenage girls. As for your teenage boy, there's no better time to invest in a watch from House of Fraser, Victoria Square to add to his stocking.
