Teen Girl Gift Guide: 12 Days of Christmas Gifting

Shopping for teens is tricky. In the words of the very wise Britney Spears, she’s “Not a girl, not yet a woman.” So today I’ve rounded up some gifts that I would have LOVED in my teenage years: some useful, some fun, all of them v. cool (that means very cool).

Okay, I realize now I’m recommending a fanny pack right after saying all of these gifts are cool – but fanny packs are in right now, we just call them belt bags. It’s the effortlessly-cool appeal, perfect for tailgating, events & travel. This nylon belt bag has a chic colorblocked band and free monogramming. Another trendy item back from the 90’s but with a cool twist: hair clips. I love this set from Amazon with lots of variety.

These leggings are a great dupe for the super-expensive Lululemon pair but under $30 on Amazon. I love the slightly cropped length to show a bit of ankle (super flattering), and they come in tons and tons of colors. This puff-sleeve sweater is another good buy that will last for a long time. Super cozy for winter and great for layering.

There’s not an executive assistant in this world more organized than teenage girls, I swear. For your type-A teen, give her a fresh planner for the new year. This one has a pretty cover, tons of room for goal setting and notes, and stickers. No one is too old for stickers. Along the same lines, I love this book, ’52 Lists for Happiness’. Full of lists like “List the greatest compliments you’ve been given, and “List some of the happiest people you know.” It’s a motivational way to journal through the year and foster gratitude and joy.

I always loved experimenting with skincare as a teen, and the Ordinary skincare line is great for finicky skin types. This set of bestsellers is gentle but effective and is only $19. And if your favorite girl loves her sleep, gift her this sunrise alarm clock for a gentler wake up call before classes. It mimics natural sunlight to help the body wake naturally and improve moods. (You’re welcome).
