Shopping for a tween or teen girl 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. Gone are the days of turning down pages in a toy catalog, now we’ve entered the days of electronics, beauty products, and clothes.
Mini Portable Charger for iPhone with Built-in Cable
Great for those emergency situations where your teen needs some battery lift to call you but doesn't want to carry around a charger and cable.
Google Home Mini Smart Speaker with Google Assistant
Teens love listening to music, setting alarms, and asking questions to smart speakers. We subscribe to Google Play Music, so the Google Home Minis can play our personal playlists, too.
Misfit Ray Rose Tone Activity Tracker
If your teen is active and likes to stay healthy, they might appreciate a fitness tracker, however, most girls don't like the standard, bulky trackers. This one looks like a piece of jewelry which teens should appreciate!
Speck Cell Phone Case
You'll have to know what type of phone your teen has and then you can get them a new phone case for the holidays. My teen likes things simple, the fancy glitter cases aren't really what she or her friends are into. This simple clear case is protective and simple.
Fuzzy Cute Animals Warm Slipper Socks
Another one of my things that my teen has tried to steal is my fuzzy socks. She loves to wear them around the house. And since teens seem to veg better than any other age group, fuzzy socks will keep their toes warm during said lounging.
Lettering and Modern Calligraphy: A Beginner's Guide
Help your teen learn a new skill with this hand lettering guide and workbook.
Finchberry Handmade Natural Soap Bar Gift Set
These Finchberry soaps are amazing and my girls love how they smell and look. This gift set is perfect for the teen in your life who wants to feel like she's old enough for the finer things in life. They're also handmade, gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and made without any harsh chemical preservatives.
One Girl Inspired
Inspiration for Teen Girls: each box features a new theme with 4-6 items corresponding to that theme or time of year. Products may include journals, personal development books, tech gadgets, cool school supplies, jewelry, beauty products and more. Our mission is to provide messaging to help teen girls: believe in themselves, aspire to dream big, be the best version of themselves, and make their own mark on the world.
Black Girl MATHgic
If you're shopping for a young girl who loves math, here's a box for her. Plus, it features black girls to help empower girls of color! The Black Girl MATHgic Box is the only subscription box designed to increase math confidence and decrease math anxiety in girls on a 3rd-8th-grade math level. Each month, your girl will receive a box (3rd-5th and 6th-8th grade options) containing real-world math lessons and activities, fun educational items, a math affirmation, profile of a woman mathematician + more!
My teens are always fidgeting and we have a hoverboard that they love. However, this is a natural, handmade in Vermont balance board that will test their core fitness. They'll love competing against their friends for who can balance the longest.
Nintendo Switch Game Console
My girls aren't huge gamers but we used to really enjoy playing on the Nintendo Wii as a family. We recently upgraded to the Nintendo Switch and they love it! Plus it can be used as a portable handheld game system which is great for road trips!
TIP: They'll be running a sale starting Nov 28th offering Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for free, which is my girls' favorite game!
New Phone, Who Dis? - Adult Party Game by What Do You Meme?
Older teens only! Another game that is trending with the teen crowd but clearly states for ages 17+ due to mature themes. Use your parental choice to decide if your teen can handle it,.
"If You Really Love Me You'll Let Me Sleep" Throw Pillow
This one seems to be fitting for most teens I know! This is just the case so you'll need to pick up a cheap throw pillow or reuse one around your house.
Visa or Mastercard Gift Card
Teens are pretty open to where they shop and there is a lot of online shopping in a teen's world. That’s why a Visa® or Mastercard® gift card is always a great choice. They can buy whatever they want with it with no restrictions on where they shop.
There are a few downsides to these cards though. First of all, there is a fee associated with these types of gift cards (usually around $5). Plus, not all retailers accept pre-paid debit cards, so they may run into an issue depending on where they shop.
Regal Entertainment Gift Card
Movies are expensive. Most adults have to budget in order to afford a night out at the movies, so you know that it is a hard thing for teens to do. A Regal gift card will help them enjoy a movie night with friends! Check to see if their local theater is a Regal or AMC, or get a Fandango gift card if you're not sure.
Christmas Wrapping Ideas: Number Mystery
Do your teens shake and rattle packages trying to determine what's inside? Or do they compare the number of their gifts with their siblings? Our family does a number mystery opening game every year so everyone is surprised with what package is for who!
