Need a few thoughtful and original gifts for a teen girl in your life?

I was at a complete loss when it came to Christmas for my teen girls.  I started searching online and asking friends for ideas.

In the end, I am thrilled about the options I found for the 13 and 15-year-old girls in this house.

Now I will pass on some of the great gifts for a teen girl that were given to me.

Make gift giving easy with this life of gift ideas for a teen girl.
Gift Ideas for a Teen Girl

1. Jewelry Subscriptions

Mint Mongoose sends you three pieces of jewelry surprises each month for just $12.

Fair Trade Earring of the Month is the jewelry subscription that I have for myself. I have also gifted a 3-month subscription as a gift.

2. Kavu Bag

This one is a perfect gift for your teen on the go. She’ll be set for summer camp, study group, or sleepovers. There are so many pattern choices as well.

3. Tickets to an Event

How about an annual subscription to the theater or ballet?

Maybe a ticket to a concert for their favorite singer or band?

You could plan a trip to a theme park or local zip line adventure park.

4. Instant Camera

This one is a hot item and has been for a year or two. You can find a variety of colors.

a. Polaroid Instant Film Camera
b. Polaroid Snap
c. Fujifilm Instax Mini 9


Don’t forget the film that matches the brand you purchase.

5. Eno Hammock

Hang this hammock anywhere in a jiffy. Take it to the lake, on a hike or to the local park. Your teen can relax with friends just about anywhere with trees.


If your kids own a hammock, then just buy the ENO style straps. We did this for our kids this year because the ENO straps are so easy to use. A teen can hang their hammock with no problem.

6. Creative Art Supplies

Put together a little kit with a few art supplies that are a little different from the everyday supplies:

a. Gelato Pastel Sticks
b. Dual Tip Brush Pens
c. The Visual Journal


d. Kneaded Erasers
e. Blender Marker
f. A book about Hand Lettering (The one I treated myself to is pictured below)
g. Electric Eraser (The one we own is pictured below.)

7. Book Subscription Box

How about a brand new young adult book delivered to her house each month?

Once Upon a Book Club is for ages 14+ and includes 1 YA fiction book, 3 to 5 wrapped gifts, a 5×7 quote print, discussion questions and read-a-long dates for live discussion, and gift opening with fellow readers

8. New Bedding

Who couldn’t use new bedding? We treated our teen to a new down comforter and duvet cover one year. They were both a huge hit. She was so excited to have a soft down comforter like the one on my bed.

How about special flannel sheets?

Maybe a new bookish throw pillow? or a Shakespeare quote?

And may I suggest fairy lights and mini clothespins so your teen can design a wall of photos in her bedroom.

9. Makeup

Find a complete makeup kit or just purchase various favorite items. How about a nice zipper pouch for makeup storage, especially for travel?

Consider a makeup subscription box so the goodies keep coming all year long.

10. Athletic Items

How about new workout clothes including a few new athletic headbands?

You can stock up on some athletic supplies like a yoga mat and a new water bottle.

Of course, in the end it also works to toss a little cash their way and let them come up with a creative way to spend it.
