Christmas Gift Ideas For Teenage Girls
Choosing The Perfect Gift For A Teenage Girl
Let's face it. Buying a desirable gift for your teenage daughter that is both fitting and satisfying is an extremely daunting task. Teenage girls are involved in school activities, hanging out with their friends, and boyfriends and very busy establishing their own identity. The gifts you bought last year are probably long gone, buried in a drawer somewhere very outdated.
Teenage girls love getting new things, and there is something new coming out every other day, so how do you keep up? And how do you decide what your teenage girl will like, and appreciate? Not to worry, here you will find a short list of gift ideas just perfect for a teenage girl.
Keep your ears and eyes open, listen very carefully to what your teenager is saying, what hints she is dropping. Jot down the things she mentions she wants. Ask her what she would like for Christmas, be careful on this one, she may suggest a new car, and that may not be in your budget, or perhaps it is, and your teenage girl will be getting a shiny new car this year. But for practical purposes we will explore less expensive gifts.
Decorate With Lights
Christmas Gifts Ideas For Your Teenage Girl
String Lights - Teenage girls like glistening soft lighting, stringing them around the mirror or vanity is an excellent choice. I've seen the young girls in my family tack the lights around their entire room. Choosing a string of soft white lights works wonderfully for that soft touch of ambience. Colored lights softly brighten up a room. Teens will sit in the dark and agonize while doing homework, ask them if they want a light on and, "no I can see" is the answer you are more than likely going to get. However they will turn that pretty string of lights on too illuminate the room enough to see and feel cozy.
Compact Digital Cameras - Teenage girls love taking pictures. With a small compact digital camera they can carry it everywhere with them and click to their heart's content. If you choose this option, do not forget to buy a memory card to go along with the camera. A 8MB is an excellent choice. Your teen will be able to store up to a thousand photo's depending on the megapixal of the camera.
Posters - Find out who or what your teen is into and buy posters. What teenage girl doesn't like to fill her bedroom space with posters? Remember this, teenage girls change their preferences like lightning. What was in last week, is on the way out this week. My niece has her wall plastered with Johnny Depp's Alice In Wonderland, and now she is into Josh Hutcherson from Hunger Games So beware! Tastes change quickly.
Jewelry - You cannot go wrong when you are buying jewelry. Every teenage girl loves a pair of sparkling earrings, bracelets and rings. And if you have a teenager that has other piercings like a belly, eyebrows, lips or a tongue, then you have a huge selection to pick from. When you go into the jewelry store, I am sure you will have no problem finding a salesperson to help you pick out the proper piece of jewelry for her piercing. Silly Bandz are another hot item, they are getting very popular, they have exciting themes teenage girls really enjoy.
Pre-Paid Credit Cards - These are so much better than a gift card. Because with a pre paid-credit card your teenage girl can go anywhere she wants to spend it. With a gift card you have to spend it at all in one place. This way she can buy whatever it is she has been wanting to buy, at different stores if she so chooses. These are readily available at many stores like Wal-Mart, Meijer and K-Mart. You should have no problem finding them.
Christmas Gift Baskets - These are perfect little baskets full of treasures sure to make your teenage girl happy. You can include positively anything and everything. What does your teenager like? Perfumes, jewelry, decorative socks, undies, bath items, shampoo, toothbrushes, make-up, money, school stuff, picture frames, magazines, treats and other favorite items you think your teenage girl will like. A gift basket is perfect because it is made with love.
Magazine subscriptions - Teenage girls like to read about the latest fashions, and buzz going on in the world around them. Imagine how excited your teen will be receiving a magazine or two in the mail every month about fashion, the latest trends, celebrity gossip and other fun things they enjoy.
Some Magazine Ideas:
- Seventeen/Teen Vogue: Fashion , art, photography, beauty, style, and career

Ringtones - Your teen is going to love receiving ringtones if she has a cell phone. There are many ways you can go about letting your teenage girl download ringtones to her cell phone. If you have a monthly plan, you can go online and download them. There are many online websites where you can buy ringtones. Or download a music application on your teens cell phone and purchase ringtones that way.
