It can be hard to get into your teenage daughter’s head and figure out what gift she’s really going to love. In no case is that more evident than when trying to buy her clothes. It’s a scientifically proven fact that your child will never be satisfied with any clothing you pick out for her. There is, though, one exception. One closely kept secret that can help you avoid the incredulous scowls of your disappointed child. That secret? Band shirts.
That’s right! It’s as simple as finding out who they like and buying them the shirt! It’s tempting to try to find them the perfect dress or some pair of shoes they’ll love, but don’t over think it. Do they have an Adele poster? Get them an Adele t-shirt! Need some more ideas? Well, here you go:
Muse Exogenesis T-shirt
Muse has been around for some time now. Releasing their first album in 1999, they’ve managed to maintain moderate success throughout the last decade. In recent years, however, their reputation has simultaneously been boosted and taken a hit when they were tapped to write most of the music for the Twilight movies. Whether your kid likes Twilight or not, Muse is a great pick. The best part about a Muse t-shirt is, you can be cool to both people who love and hate Twilight. If your kids are big sparkle vampire fans, they can just say you love the movie music. If they have good taste in books, they can say they liked Muse before the movies. That way, your kids sound awesome no matter what. It’s a win-win!
Kings of Leon Flytrap t-shirt
Kings of Leon broke into the scene back in 2006 with their third album, Because of the Times. Since then, despite run ins with malicious pigeons and a brief hiatus, the four Followils from Oklahoma are going strong. It was a hot summer for Kings of Leon (and in general, am I right?) and Fall just keeps heating up. Is it Global Warming or is it just the September release of their new album, Mechanical Bull? Possibly both, but The Kings are as as concerned as you are, because they released their first single from the album, ‘Supersoaker’, in the midst of summer to try to cool things down a bit. It didn’t work, but it did help keep them at the top of the music world. And yeah, chances are, your daughter loves them.
Linkin Park Crossbones Baby doll T-shirt
Linkin Park rose to prominence around the turn of the century and they’re still going strong today. That means that this t-shirt gives you a double dose of cool. With their last release coming in 2012 and another album already in the works, Linkin Park has kept their blend of nu metal and modern hip-hop infused pop-rock on radios and iPods across the nation. This Linkin Part t-shirt has a fresh, edgy look that will make your child stand out amid the drab masses of less stylish girls. I mean, if that’s what you want. Maybe save this one for your college student…
Maroon 5 Mountain
Maroon 5 has been killing it since I was in High School, which isn’t really that long ago. Shut up. Still, that’s pretty impressive for any music group, let alone one with such a focus on pop. It’s not that surprising, though, when you consider their catchy, hook heavy library of songs and the high profile life of lead singer Adam Levine. Their cover designs are pretty eye catching, as well, especially their latest album, Overexposed. This Maroon 5 t-shirt is in a similar, somewhat whimsical style. And your kid looks great in red, doesn’t she? Of course she does!
