What would be a nice perfume gift for a 20 year old and a 16 year old?

Any suggestions?



Thanks

Since you can never know without asking what scent they like, how about doing several small, sample sizes of different perfumes. It makes for a fun gift when opening with everyone wanting to smell each one. MyPerfumeSamples.com offers most popular scents for men and women in a variety of small sizes starting at 99 cents. My wife loved when I gave her an assortment of about a dozen expensive perfumes in tiny sizes.

If they live near a Sephora, it's best to go with one of their perfume samplers. They get small vials of different scents plus a certificate that can be redeemed for a full size of their favorite.

Here's an example with 15 vials: https://www.sephora.com/product/holi...435370:product

Here's one if you want to spend a bit less. The certificate redeems for a travel size: https://www.sephora.com/product/perf...436752:product

Perfume is kind of tricky to give as a gift when you don't know what people want, but those ages are young enough where they'd probably appreciate a gift set with lotion and a matching body spray. Places like Bath and Body Works will have a bunch.

edit: jinx with charlygal!

Note that if you are shipping perfume it must be shipped via ground transportation (such as USPS Parcel Select/Retail Ground, UPS Ground, or FedEx Ground/Home Delivery).

I agree a gift card is best - do NOT buy someone a fragrance that you don't know they like (esp. young gals - tastes change, depends what is "in" w/their friends, allergies, etc.)
