Teen girls are growing up so what they want for holiday, birthday, and Christmas gifts is quite different than when they were younger. I feel you. I have two teen girls! Here are gifts that teenagers will love.
Cool Gifts for Teen Girls
Scrunchy Hair Bands
They’re baaaack. Yes, I couldn’t believe it either but I’m so psyched. Your teen (and mine) with long hair will want these soft velvet hair bands because they’re useful and on trend.
In the Stars Fragrance Mist
I like that this Bath and Body Works spray is inexpensive ($15) and smells yummy like starflower, sandalwood musk, sugared tangelo, white agarwood & radiant amber. It’s currently the only thing my 16-year old wants for Christmas.
3 Speed Turntable with Built-In Speakers
My teen daughter loves her aqua turntable. And you’ll love the price. You’ll have plenty of money to spend on vinyl to go with it.
Hoodies pretty much always work for teens — this H & M one is a pretty cool STEM pick.
The Alexa Dot was our successful compromise with our daughter who still wanted to listen to her music in her room but wasn’t allowed to have screen time in her bedroom. Now it’s become a favorite way to play music for both our girls. It’s voice-controlled and you can use it as an alarm, speaker, timer, and more.
Suede Mini Rocker Chair
This Pottery Barn chair is compatible with gaming and computer devices, has built-in speakers, and is super comfortable. What teen wouldn’t love this?
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell ROMANCE
Not only will you love the writing but you’ll also love the characters Eleanor and Park, teenagers who are seemingly very different yet fall in love with each other anyway. It’s such a beautiful love story, you won’t want it to end.
Colorful Stainless Steel Water Bottles
A top pick for teens — these are sturdy and useful with an easy flow open mouth no leak top.
Wireless, rechargeable headphones that fit inside your backpack or pocket.
Instax Mini 9 Camera Bundle
You’ll get this cool camera PLUS a carrying case, filters, albums, a selfie lens & MORE. My kids think this will be the best gift because it’s a fun thing to do with friends.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir HISTORICAL / FANTASY
Part historical (ancient Rome) and part fantasy, Elias and Laia live in a world that enslaves them both in different ways — Elias to fight and Laia to serve and spy. This is an epic page-turning series with lots of mystery, action, and a hint of romance. (Buy the whole series while you’re at it!)
iPad Pro + Apple Pencil
Both the Pro and the Apple Pencil haves been much-used gifts for both my girls. They’re loving the pencil for drawing apps and think the functionality of the Pro rocks.
Twinkle Star LED Window curtain String Lights
These make a teenager’s room so beautiful and cozy.
Don’t forget that Pop Sockets get dirty and lose their stick. Maybe it’s time for an upgrade? Try this cool marble design.
The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
EOS Lip Balm
My daughter got these for all her friends last year — and they were a big hit!
Kate Spade Spiral Notebook Brand Words
Give the gift of self-reflection with this inspiring journal.
