Good skincare habits are the type of thing you will always wish you began earlier. La Roche-Posay is the type of brand that’s great for building up the best kind of bathroom shelf that will make you smug when the mid-twenties and laughter lines start making an appearance. As far as first grown-up moisturisers go La Roche-Posay Hydraphase UV Intense Light is a solid start. The hydration feels immediate and the formula is lightweight – ideal for skin that is subject to all those hormones and natural oils. The SPF20 will provide protection against the sunrays. This is the type of stocking filler you’ll get thanked for in a few years.

Young adult fiction is so good these days. From all the dystopian heroines to whatever steampunk is, you can rely on the teenage section of the bookshop to have the best stories on shelves.?Anna and the French Kiss is the first in a loosely connected trilogy from Stephanie Perkins and this 25-year-old swooned while rushing through the highly charged pages. Anna’s father is a wealthy Nicholas Sparks-esque writer who uses his newfound dollars to send his movie-loving daughter to an expensive private American boarding school in Paris.?Within minutes of arriving Anna meets the cute, shorter-than-her, and very much taken Etienne St. Clair. Sparks fly and complications ensue because teenagers. The writing is fabulous and the plot not at all frothy – family illness and important decisions about adulthood abound alongside all the emotions and teenage yearning. The only downside to this novel is that you’ll have a girl dreaming of moving to Paris on your hands.

Teenagers are not like you and I, in that while we all should spend a few more nights in every week, they actually do because of school and the fact they sleep like enchanted princesses. Ain’t no budging those breathing corpses. This cosy M&S Collection Onesie, ??37, is the ideal gift for the gal who laughs at your suggestion of a DVD night – don’t you know how to download whole television series while uploading every staged minute of your life to Instagram? To be honest, we’re still not sure how to sort our Tax Saver travel card, so no.

This Wah London Ultimate Nail Art Kit is truly the most full of all the stocking fillers. With an array of matte polishes and acid pens,inspired by 20th century artist David Hockney no less, this present will keep teen girls so busy you may not see them after dinner because Instagram needs another nail art photo. Available in Boots, €110.

After a year of non-stop Kardashian, we’re all going to be contouring in 2015. This is an inescapable beauty fact. This Cheeky Sweet Spot gift set from Benefit features six of their signature blush shades, subtle enough to suit all moods and skin types. Two great things about Benefit? First, the packaging is taken care of. Second, they provide little how-to notelets to help prevent overload.
