Gifts for Teen Girls

Updated on December 7, 2014

Unique Gifts for Teen Girls

Shopping for teen girls can be a very difficult task. It seems that all they want is technology, technology, and more technology. Sometimes that's okay, but too much tech isn't always good. Personally, I like to see teens interested in things that don't involve a power outlet. If you feel the same way, but are having trouble thinking of a gift a teen girl will like, try some of these ideas. There's some classic teen girl gifts and some creative and unique options.

Jewelery for Teen Girls

Jewelry is a popular fashion accessory for teenage girls. It's versatile for many different fashion statements and styles and is small so doesn't take up valuable space. Teen girls usually like funky, trendy jewelry pieces rather than classic jewelry. Everyone is different, but here are some great ideas for jewelry gifts that teen girls will love.

Give a personal gift with a unique name necklace. You can have the necklace made with any name, so it will be meaningful and special.


Trendy Bags for Teen Girls

Teen girls need to have everything with them when they go out. It seems like every item is a neccessity. Plus, they want to look cool when they carry all this stuff around. A trendy bag is a must have for teen girls, and is practical, too. If you're looking for a great gift for a teen girl, a unique, cool bag that represents her style is a perfect idea.

Rubber Band Bracelet Craft

One of the hottest trends for teens right now is rubber band bracelets. They're simple and easy to make and there's endless patterns and color combinations you can try. I remember the friendship bracelets of my generation and how much fun we all had with them.

I work in schools and I see these rubber band bracelets everywhere, on both girls and guys. Whether they're a fad or they're here to stay, there's no question that they're one of the most popular items out there right now. And to top it off, they're fairly cheap and get kids and teens away from the technology that dominates their lives.

If you're looking for a gift for a teen girl, try a rubber band bracelet kit. If she already has one, then a refill package of rubber bands is always a great idea.

Glow in the Dark Hula Hoops

Hula hoops may seem like a retro, out of date gift for a teen girl, but this hula hoop brings the toy into the 21st century. Made for use in the dark, it glows in the dark and changes color as you use it. It's great for sleepovers or back yard camp outs. It will get your teen girl and her friends away from their phones and other electronics and up and moving. A glow in the dark hula hoop is perfect for hours of fun and exercise and really doesn't need to be limited to teens.

Picture Frames for a Teen Girl's Room

Pictures are a big deal for teen girls. They take tons of pictures with their friends, or sometimes of anything that seems interesting. They're a wonderful way to document and remember all the great times of the teen years. Because digital cameras make it easy to take lots of photos without spending money, teens end up with a lot of fantastic photos they'd love to print. Picture frames are a great gift for teen girls. Collage picture frames are especially nice because teens can show off multiple photos at the same time and change out photos as the mood strikes them. Here's some ideas for cute picture frames that are perfect for any teen girl's room.

Any teenage girl is sure to love this beautiful collage picture frame. It's neutral, so will match any decor and the multiple frames will let her display all her favorite photos at once.


O.P.I Nailpolish

Teen girls love nail polish. It's a great fashion accessory that has endless possibilities and combinations. You can really never have enough bottles of nail polish. Plus, they eventually go bad, so they need to be replaced every so often.

I've had many bottles of nail polish over the years from many different brands. While I won't pretend that this is the only quality nail polish out there, O.P.I. nail polish is by far my favorite. In fact, it's virtually the only kind I will buy anymore. It's a strong polish that won't chip off quickly. Also, O.P.I. nail polishes all come in fun themes. Several colors are released together and are all named according to a theme such as James Bond, Switzerland, or Mariah Carey.

Nail polish is a perfect stocking stuffer for teen girls, or can be bought in a package for an under the tree gift. They're guaranteed to put a smile on any teen girl's face.

Nailpolish has been around since 3000 B.C. It originated in China.

How to Create Unique and Funky Nails

Applying nail polish can be really tricky, especially if it's to your own hands. But, you don't need to get a professional manicure in order to get fantastic nails. These videos show you how to apply your own nail polish to create a professional and unique look. They're easy to follow and will give hours of entertainment as you try out different styles and techniques on your own nails.

Archery Set

With the continued popularity of The Hunger Games, the popularity of archery has soared. It was actually the most watched sport at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.

Archery can be a lot of fun. I had the chance to try it a couple of years ago and even though I wasn't very good, I had a blast. As an added bonus, it's also exercise. It certainly isn't as athletic as soccer or basketball, but it still gets you up and moving, plus it helps with eye and co-ordination.

If you know a teen girl who's a fan of The Hunger Games (or even if she's not!), archery just might be a wonderful new hobby for her and her friends to try out.

More Gift Choices

If you're looking for more gift ideas, there's an endless possibility of choices. Depending on the girl, books can be a great option, and there's certainly no end of exciting young adult books available. Try The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Mortal Instruments, or The Selection to start with.

Gift Cards are less personal, but they are sure to bring a smile to any teen girl's face. Give her a gift card to her favorite clothing store (picking out the clothes yourself can be pretty risky). Gift cards to Itunes or the movie theatre are also safe bets.
