If you are also looking to make useful gifts, then it's almost mission impossible! To be original, here are our 4 useful gift ideas to help young girls live their period better. With this, you are sure to create a real surprise!

A hot water bottle: the perfect gift for the holiday season

What could be better than receiving a hot water bottle under the tree? It's cold, we want to curl up under the covers with a hot chocolate. This somewhat "old-fashioned" object is back in fashion to the delight of our feet. There are now even hot water bottles that are simply heated in the microwave, very practical! Above all, you can explain to your protege that in addition to being great for a cocooning evening, this object is formidable against pain in the lower abdomen linked to menstruation.

Periodic serums to fight pimples

From the start of puberty, hormonal variations during the 4 weeks of the menstrual cycle have an impact on the skin of the face, and this impact very often results in pimples! So why continue to use the same cream, whatever the period of the cycle?

Based on this observation, Typology has created a box of 4 serums adapted to the needs of the skin during the 4 phases of the cycle. Your teen will certainly thank you for helping her fight skin blemishes, and this is the perfect opportunity to annoy her a little by testing her knowledge of the menstrual cycle.

Headphones: a really useful gift!

During your period, it's important to keep moving despite fatigue and pain . This promotes blood circulation and therefore reduces the various menstrual ailments. But now, the motivation is not always there... So we listen to catchy music to give ourselves courage. And since your teenager's musical tastes are certainly not the same as yours, you might as well make sure that she listens to her favorite playlist without sharing it with you! This is where the headset comes in. But that's not all ! With headphones, your daughter will also be able to listen to inspiring podcasts helping her to better understand her body, her femininity and to take care of herself naturally on the bus that takes her to high school.

If you are worried about his ears, headphones are recommended over earphones. The latter are actually much more dangerous for hearing because they are closer to the eardrums!

A set of period panties suitable for young girls

Period panties are known for being comfortable, easy to use and free of chemicals which, it should be remembered, make up most disposable period protection (tampons and sanitary napkins). They are also washable and reusable and therefore very ecological : enough to score points with teenagers who are more and more sensitive to the preservation of the planet!
