Gift Ideas for Teen Girls That They Will Love

Updated on September 7, 2014

Don't Complicate It - Teenage Girls Really Aren't Hard to Buy Gifts For

Teenaged girls aren't that difficult to choose gifts for yet so many people get it wrong. Don't force your teenager to put a false smile on her face, buy her a gift that she will truly love. I'll share some great tips for choosing the best gift ideas for the teen girls in your life as well as links to some of the best picks this year that teen girls themselves have voiced that they want to unwrap this year.

As the mother of two teenage daughters, I have the inside track on what girls wish for. While each young woman has her own interests, and each is an individual, here are some ideas for gifts that I have heard teen girls say that they would like to receive this year.

Some Suggestions from Young Women Who Know!

Check these videos to hear from these young women about their favorite presents! While there are some commonalities, each person is different in the kinds of things she loves. I love the way each one's personality shines through in the products she has received.

Considerations When Considering Gift Ideas for Teen Girls - Where to get gift ideas for teen girls?

A few things to keep in mind that will help direct you to the perfect gift idea for the teenager on your Christmas list this year.

  1. Is she a girly-girl? If not, please avoid bows, frills and pink of any kind. Just because it's labeled as something all girls will like does NOT mean she will actually like it.
  2. What hobbies does she enjoy? Maybe she enjoys painting, rock climbing, writing poetry or origami. Hobbies make her unique. Cue in.

    What are her favorite colors? Taking the time to notice this and get a gift in this color says a lot. If the gift can't be found in that color, the wrapping paper certainly can be.

  3. Take notes! Teenaged girls are usually good about mentioning things they love. If they don't, check out things they display like posters, stickers on their notebook, things they draw on their shoes. Wherever inspiration strikes, take note! The gift doesn't have to be fancy if it is something that she is really into. Showing you took the time to notice is a big part of the gift.
  4. Observe the t-shirts she wears. Often they display bands or other things that give giant clues as to what she is into. While you're at it, observe her décor choices as well. Notice any recurring themes like horses, butterflies, skulls... whatever.
  5. Ask her parents or friends if you aren't sure. If you are really brave, just ask the girl herself. You don't have to say "What do you want for Christmas?" You could ask "So, I haven't seen you in awhile. What have you been up to? Do you still like... " Get the conversation going.

      I do not have any girls, however, if I did I would probably spoil them with an all-day spa treatment.

      I'm a teenage girl but im the darker a lot less girly type... I have noticed that a lot of the other girls seem to really like cute little gifts that they can use everyday without worrying about losing them. I think small bits of jewelry would be good. Charm bracelets with a girl's favourite things would be really great.

      @anonymous: Thank you so much for stopping by to share your wish list with us, Beth! It is so helpful to hear from you. Sounds like you are really into music! I hope you get those concert tickets!

      P.S. I'm going to add a Zumie hat to this page. Thanks for the great suggestions!

      I'm 13! In My School.. Something popular are boys beanie hats from Zumies. I own 2, and I swear them a lot, but their not something that is my favorite. I have a bit of a skater styles, and I'm really girly, Which is unusual.But whatever.. Most girls my age like One Direction, Justin Bieber, or Austin Mahone. Some more tips there. Umm... Posters, Magazines, CD'S, CONCERT TICKETS. OMG. If I got 1D tickets i would die. xD But,.. Aniways, you can get them things that are popular in their school that they also enjoy! (: xo, Bethany.

      @anonymous: Absolutely, Daphne! That's why I say it is important to know the girl and her likes and dislikes. You have made very clear what you hope no one gets you. To avoid people guessing and maybe giving you something you don't like, please make some suggestions of things you would love to receive. It definitely increases your chances of getting them!

      Many, many girls love to receive clothing and other gifts related to their appearance. There are obviously other things more important to you. I hope you will come back and tell us about your interests. We would love to know more about you and what you hope to find in your Christmas stocking in a couple of weeks!

      @Badbreathguy: I agree! Most teenage girls love purses! I hope you saw the amazing giraffe print handbag I featured near the top of this page. Animal prints are trendy this year, and giraffe is a bit different, so that choice is pretty sure to be a win! However, if you aren't crazy about giraffe print, the purse comes in a lot of different animal prints and colors, so you can find one your girl will like best!

      @CoolBabyStuff: I think gift cards are great! They are so easy and girls love to receive them so they can buy what they like. Plus, a gift card can show that you put a little more thought into her present than simply giving cash, which can be a tad impersonal.

      @anonymous: Thanks for pointing out that not every girl will love every single item on this list. Everyone is different. We all have different tastes and interests, teenagers included!

      While Luigi might not be your cup of tea, I know other girls who really love him and would be thrilled to get a character shirt with him on it.

      I hope you will come back and let us know what gifts you like and hope to see under your tree this Christmas!

      @Virginia Allain: if your niece is interested in cosplay, there's a high chance she likes manga/anime and/or other types of comics. The only gifts that I think might interest her from this list are the hunger games, the Wii U (but that's a pretty expensive gift at about $250), and the gift cards. Try asking your niece for a wish list to get an idea of things she's actually like, don't beat around the bush and end up getting something for that doesn't fit her interests. Hope this helps :)

      This is great, as I haven't a clue for this age group. I have a great niece who's crazy about cosplay, but that's my only lead.

      It's hard to know what to buy them. A handbag always seems to go down well where I come from.

      Fabulous gift selection for teens! I admire the energy that you put into this lens by sharing with us what to take into consideration when buying gifts for Teen Girls. I love your practical approach and style. I have a younger sister in her teens and I know she'll definitely agree with your fabulous choices. I can tell that you know so much about teens just the way you presented this lens. Great job, dear friend! Great lens indeed! God bless you and stay fabulous!
