  • Are straddling the world between kid things and adult things

4. Scratch-Off Black Post It Notes

When I was a teen girl? Not only did I need help with staying organized and jotting down random notes to myself, but I loved the color BLACK.

These scratch-off, black post-it notes would’ve been exactly what I wanted.

5. Personal Safety Keychain

Teen girls are spending more and more time away from home with friends, possibly a boyfriend, groups, etc.

And this is especially true if they’re driving (with or without a job).

Make their lives a bit safer with one of these personal safety keychains.

6. Key Lanyard

Teens are given more and more responsibility, and with that usually comes at least one key (maybe to their home, maybe to their first car, maybe to their locker?).

These stylish lanyards are just the thing to help them not only easily access their keys, but give them a reason to actually want to remember them.

7. The Driving Book

the driving book with red cover

Here’s a best-selling book all about driving, geared towards teenagers. This is perfect whether or not your teen is driving yet, or on the cusp of doing so.

Topics covered include things like:

  • Expressways, Freeways, Thruways, and Beltways
  • Taking Care of Your Car
  • Getting a Ticket
  • Driving in Bad Weather
  • Etc.

8. Trendy Decal Stickers

100 decal stickers in a pile

Remember when I said that teen girls are in a stage of wanting to express themselves through style?

When I was a teen girl, that was through the keychains you attached to your backpack.

These decal stickers – that they can add to things like their laptop, their water bottle, their notebooks, luggage, etc. – will accomplish the same thing. So many to choose from, that they’ll absolutely find at least one (or 10) that they love!

Pssst: teens love receiving money for gifts, too. Here’s my article on creative ways to give money to a teenager (even if it’s just $10!).

9. Set of 12 Korean Face Masks

Here’s a really neat and unique piece of jewelry for teen girls.
