Christmas is almost upon us, but first: Black Friday sales. With the sales already in full swing (despite the official date of the big event being this coming Friday), it's time you started thinking about your to-buy list if you haven't already. 

Now, what to buy your door-slamming teenager, you ask? Boots is a safe destination – they sell a huge range of the best hair straighteners, good quality makeup and natural skincare. And let's not forget they sell electric shavers, cameras and more.

We've put together a mini-guide on what to buy your teen from Boots' Black Friday 2019 sale – you're very welcome. You can find more brilliant Black Friday buys on our hub page.

1. Straighteners for a hair-obsessed teen

Remington Shine Therapy Straightener S8500 | Was £79, now £29
These game-changer straighteners can straighten or curl hair really well. They've been tried and tested by the RealHomes.com team and as a result, added to our guide of the best hair straighteners you can buy.  Why? Their plates are infused with Moroccan Argan Oil and Vitamin E to guarantee a shiny finish.  View Deal

2. A hair curler (for that same hair-obsessed teen)

BaByliss Curl Secret 2667U | Was £119.99, now £58
The BaByliss Curl Secret 2667U has pioneering Auto Curl technology to effortlessly create beautiful, free-flowing curls with long-lasting effect. Hair is automatically drawn into the ceramic curl chamber where it is softly held and gently heated from all directions to form a curl. It has two heat settings and will automatically alternate the curl direction each time a section of hair is drawn into the ceramic curl chamber to give a natural, smooth finish. We want. It's easy to use and super affordable right now.View Deal

3. For a spot-prone teen

Botanics Nourishing Organic Regime | Was £49.95, now £24.50
We can vouch for the fact that Botanics products really are game-changing, and they'll be kind on your teenager's sensitive skin since they're organic, too. This set includes a full cleansing routine: a cleansing balm, facial balm, day cream, overnight oil and face oil. All for under £25! Did someone say stocking filler?View Deal

4. For that same, spot-prone teen

Magnitone BareFaced 2 Vibra-Sonic™ Facial Cleansing and Toning Brush | Was £90, now £45
Is your teenager having a tough time with their skin? This handy device takes the hard work out of cleansing and toning your face – it can beautifully condition skin in just 60 seconds. Some may look and think it's too harsh on the skin, however it does feature three different modes: one for sensitive skin, another for deep cleansing and the last is a PulseLift toning mode. Essentially, it helps your skin absorb your chosen skincare products better than it would if you were to use your hands.View Deal

5. For a makeup loving teen

Spectrum Collections 7 Piece Travel Set | Was £50, now £25
This colourful makeup brush set from Spectrum comes in its own little travel case and includes two eyeshadow brushes, one lip liner brush, one eyebrow brush, a foundation brush and two bronzer/blush brushes. It would make a great stocking filler or an even better gift for a best friend. Several members of the RealHomes.com team use these babies and positively recommend. View Deal

6. For a clumsy teen

Philips OneBlade Face & Body | Was £49.99 now £33.32
The Philips OneBlade is now stupidly affordable at Boots for Black Friday, so if you know someone who has just started shaving their face and is always having mishaps and wandering around with toilet roll stuck to their face, this is the gift for them. It can be used wet or dry, it can shave any length of hair and since it doesn't shave as close as a traditional blade, it's basically impossible for them to cut themselves by accident.View Deal

7. For the teen who loves to capture memories

£20 off Instax cameras
Want to gift your teen something you know they'll love? This instant camera has £20 off at Boots in their Black Friday sale. They can start their own photo wall or scrapbook, and it comes in several different colours.View Deal

8. For a candle-loving teen

Yankee Candle Classic large jar Christmas cookie | Was £23.99, now £15.99
Why buy this Yankee candle in the Black Friday sale? It has £8 off right now, and everyone knows this is the best-smelling Yankee Christmas candle. It also makes a fab stocking filler, just saying. And if they MUST burn candles in their rooms, in a jar like this might just that little bit safer...View Deal
