What is a Good Gift for a Teenage Girl?

For example, teenage girls:

  • Are close to getting their driver’s license, or already have it
  • Own a car, or will be buying one in the near future
  • Like to express their own style through items
  • Are socially aware (a natural stage of development)
  • Are straddling the world between kid things and adult things

Psst: got teenage guys to shop for? Here’s the brother-list to this, 19 Cheap Gifts for Teenage Guys (Under $10).

1. Dimmable Lightbulb with Remote

Teens love to rearrange their childhood rooms and have more control over their environment. Not only does this lightbulb offer them a range of colors to choose from…but it comes with a remote control.

Who doesn’t want a remote control, all their own?

2. 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.

3. Teen Girl Wallet

There are lots of cool options for getting a teen girl their first (or second) wallet.

I think I like this turquoise, trifold wallet the best!

4. Set of 12 Korean Face Masks

The fact that these are face masks from an Asian country makes them so much cooler than the kind they could get at the grocery store!

Also, these are great for girl sleepovers.

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. Cute and Funny Vinyl Stickers Pack

Remember how in high school if you tried to express yourself through a sticker on your notebook or laptop or backpack…that sticker was on there for life (even past your “whatevah” phase)?

These stickers are easily removable. Whew! And with over 200, that means they’ll “stick” around through all of your teen girl’s many stages and phases.

7. 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.

8. The Driving Book

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.

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!).
