"For luxe items, how about an iPad or an Apple Watch? Gift certificates are always an easy way to go as well, being that teens like picking out their own gifts and tend to be pickier than kids who get excited over anything and everything," says Cassie.

"Skincare products are always a great gift. I'm obsessed with my Rodan and Fields regimen. I also love Glamglow's face masks! A pair of shoes for the holiday season is always a good gift, women love shoes. You can also do something a little more adventurous like a wine-tasting gift certificate or a fun cooking class if she's into that kind of thing," say Cassie.

"Go with the new, patent leather Chloe booties if you're looking for a luxe shoe. Less expensive and just as cool: I'd go for a simple, all-white pair of high-top Vans. They're my favorite sneakers," says Cassie.

"Try a cool, little bookcase for them to start their own collection of novels and comics. I've recently bought a new bookcase and made it a point to collect books from all around the world. With the internet and all social-media platforms these days, I feel it's important to make sure that kids don't lose sight of the importance of good, old-fashioned stories. Vintage Fairytale classics are my favorite. However, I feel every kid really just wants their favorite toys seen on TV at the end of the day. I know I did," says Cassie.

"A simple wine and cheese basket or a Cookies by Design basket always works. If the person is more of a health nut, you can always do an Edible Arrangement (my personal favorite)," says Cassie.
