2022 DOP Holiday Gift Guide | Gift Ideas for Seniors, Teens + Tweens | Gift Ideas for Girls



I joke sometimes that working with seniors keeps me "on-trend." With the holiday shopping season upon us, I wanted to help give you the inside scoop so you can shop for that teen on your list with ease! I've worked hard with my past and present DOP REPS to compile a list of must-haves this holiday season. So here it is... the first ever DOP Holiday Gift Guide! Keep scrolling to get links to all of these goodies!






  1. Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 62 Perfume Mist To be honest, this whole line is trending this season! This scent seems to be a fan fav - it's a warm, sunny, beachy scent with notes of pistachio, salted caramel and vanilla. Sephora also has some adorable gift sets, including this Bum Bum Beats Body Care Set.

  2. Bath & Body Works lotions, sprays and body washes are still super popular for teens and pre-teens.

  3. Drunk Elephant Skincare This vegan line of clean skincare is designed to get your skin back to its healthiest, best state with a total skin reset. With the cutest packaging, it will be the a bright spot under the tree.

  4. Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush This weightless, long-lasting liquid blush that blends and builds beautifully for a soft, healthy flush. In case. you've never heard of this line - it's Selena Gomez's! My makeup artist's top color picks are"happy", "hope", and "liven".

  5. Tree Hut Sugar Scrubs If you have a teen and don't have 15 of these in your house already, are you even living? But seriously, these sugar scrubs are still super popular with the teens and they make a great stocking stuffer!

  6. Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Throw Who doesn't love a super soft warm blanket for winter?? Cuddle up with this incredibly soft knit throw that will make for a great holiday gift! Right now you can snag one on Nordstrom Rack's website for just $60, too!

  7. Olaplex Hair Care Olaplex products have previously been a salon-only treatment, but luckily for us, you can now get your hands on their science-backed products!

  8. Hair Clips According to all of my senior reps, you can never have too many!

  9. Beachwaver Co. Curling Iron Not willing to spend over $500 for a Dyson Airwrap, give this cool styling tool a try! I've heard rave reviews, and it's at the top of every hair-lovers' gift list.

  10. Nike Blazers In the ‘70s, Nike was the new shoe on the block. A lot has changed since then, but the Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage is still a classic and very popular for the middle and high school crowd!

  11. Keychain Accessories Now this one is for the drivers in the bunch, but accessorizing your keys is now a thing. These cute keychain additions I found on Amazon, but I'm sure you can find them at local boutique stores also!

  12. Water Bottles like the Yeti Bottles and Stanley Tumblers are a practical gift that's on pretty much everyone's list this season (I even have a Stanley Tumbler at the top of my list).

  13. Grab & Go Hair Ties I just love these little sets of colored hair ties. Nordstrom has a variety of colors available, but you can also purchase on Amazon.com.

  14. UGG Classic Ultra Mini Boot Another shoe for all you shoe lovers. This one is another that spans all ages. This mini boot is at the top of most gift lists this season.

  15. Birkenstock Soft Footbed Clogs OK 90's teens, I know this one is shocking, but these are making a major comeback this holiday! I'd stick to your basic neutral suede.

  16. Crew Neck Sweatshirts are all the rage! This one from Aerie is also a very popular style!

  17. Apple AirPods Max are the perfect gift for a music lover, podcast listener or techy chick. AirPods Max combine high-fidelity audio with industry-leading Active Noise Cancellation to deliver a killer listening experience.

  18. Free People The Way Home Shorts These shorts were pretty much a staple for senior girls this summer. These breezy, warm-up style running shorts, feature a boldly smocked waistband with a high-rise silhouette and split hem.

  19. lululemon Align Cropped Tank Top If your teen isn't on the lulu train, yet, I'm sure it's coming soon. I know it's a hefty price tag for athletic wear, but I must say their quality and customer service is unmatched. I'm a huge fan of these products and think they're well worth the money! Buy individually or grab a set for your teen this season - you'll thank me for making your mom of the year!

  20. lululemon Align High Rise Pant These are an all time fav among teens. The best part, size 0-2 can fit even a pre-teen. My daughter is 11 and wears a youth large and can fit in the 0 Align Pant. And if these items are out of your budget, a gift card would suffice!
