100+ Best Tween and Teen Christmas List Gift Ideas for 2023

Updated for 2023! Shopping for a tween or teen girl or boy and wondering what in the world to get them? I have two teenage girls so this teen Christmas list is filled with ideas they’ve given me to include and things I know they’ve been asking for recently.

While many of these gifts are based on my teen girls’ Christmas lists, there are a lot of gifts that are unisex and work for teen boys as well! Gone are the days of turning down pages in a toy catalog, now teens want electronics, beauty products, and clothes.

Gift Cards Your Teen Will Love

Do you have a teen on your holiday shopping list? Are you at a loss as to what to buy them? You aren’t alone. Thank goodness for gift cards, because teens are so hard to shop for!

Gift cards are great because while you are putting the thought into what type of gift card is just right for the teen you are buying for, they are still able to be independent and make their own choices with their gift.

There are so many awesome retailers out there though so it’s hard to know just what gift card to buy.  That’s why I put together a list of some of the most popular gift cards out there that your teen will love.

I hope this list of teen gift ideas has helped you with your teen Christmas & holiday shopping! Happy Holidays!
