    58 Gifts The Teenage Girl In Your Life Will Actually Enjoy

    Having been a teen girl at one point myself, I think I'm qualified to help you shop for the one in your life...right?

    1. A personalized reusable Starbucks cup any caffeinated queen will adore.

    2. A book about legendary ladies to empower the impressionable teen in your life and teach them a thing or two about awesome females.

    3. A makeup blender over 1,500 Amazon customers are obsessed with — and any teen will be too.

    4. A Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Camera for the teen who's always taking selfies.

    5. An unofficial Harry Potter cookbook so the fan in your life can be a ~wizard~ in the kitchen, not just at Hogwarts.

    6. A curtain of twinkle lights that'll make them feel like they've headed for the second star on the right and landed in Neverland.

    7. A basic dad hat for the teen who embraces the fact she's "basic."

    8. A classic plaid blanket scarf to keep any beloved teen from whining about how freakin' cold she is.

    9. A holiday tribute to Taylor Swift that'll have them belting out their favorite song from Lover while looking as festive as ever.

    10. A Dead Sea mud mask she can use to host a makeshift spa night with her friends. Fresh skin and an opportunity to post silly selfies? What more could a teen want?

    11. A Game of Thrones version of Clue that'll challenge teens to solve a murder mystery in The Red Keep or Meereen.

    12. An Amazon Firestick so they can watch talked about shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel or sync up their Disney+ account and never leave their couch again. A gift that'll keep on giving if you ask me!

    13. And an over-sized blanket sweatshirt to keep them company while they hibernate/watch endless television.

    14. A "What would Lizzo do?" desk plate they can put on display after they take a DNA test and find out their 100% that...well you know what comes next.

    15. A bluetooth gaming headset for the teen who prefers to spend time with their friends virtually rather than actually leave the house. Sounds ideal to me, TBH.

    16. And a personalized Fortnite-themed headset stand they can use to store 'em when they finally take a break from playing.

    17. A bar of soap infused with a crystal they'll find enchanting whether they use it zen out in the shower or keep around as decor.

    18. A stylish acid wash towel for the beach bum teen who would rather spend their whole day catchin' some rays instead of studying for their science exam.

    19. A Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush to remove any unnecessary stress from their morning routine.

    20. A Hello Kitty nail polish collection they'll absolutely adore because they can experiment with a variety of colors without wasting any of the money they earned at their part-time gig.

    21. A super strong USB charging cable for the teen who is forever losing or tearing theirs — because you can't put a price on an always-juiced phone.

    22. Socks with their pet's face ALL over them so they can secretly keep their paw-fect smile with them under their knee-high boots.

    23. A set of vintage headbands to make sure your fave teen's hair is always ~on fleek~ (teens say that, right?).

    24. A Kindle Paperwhite for the bookworm teen who prefers to kill time by reading rather than scrolling through nonsense on Instagram.

    25. A dazzling set of unicorn-inspired makeup brushes that'll have any YouTube tutorial–obsessed girl squealing.

    26. An Otherland candle they can put on display in their room to show all their friends how "mature" they are with a sweet-smelling, beautifully designed candle.

    27. A squeal-worthy sweatshirt for a Star Wars–loving teen who'll exclaim "BABY Y-OHMYGOD-A!" as soon as she opens it.

    28. Acne absorbing cover patches that'll blend in with any skin tone and are gentle enough for any skin type, so they can go about their day without worrying that it looks like they're growing a second head on their face.

    29. A sequin pillow they can swipe to reveal Kim Kardashian's famous ugly crying face for a surprise that'll keep them giggling from Christmas into the New Year.

    30. A faux leather Mickey backpack, so versatile it can be worn to school, hanging around the mall for hours, or on a trip to Disney World.

    31. A hot sauce–making kit that'll spice up the life of anyone who receives it this holiday season — ya' might want to pair it was a gallon of milk.

    32. A waffle stick maker that'll be there for them when they sleep way later than anyone else in the house so they miss breakfast but still wake up starving.

    33. A subscription to Book of the Month because there are few things as soothing to a bibliophile as cracking open a hardcover book. Mmm I can smell the freshly printed pages already.

    34. Ariana Grande's "Thank U Next" perfume they can spritz whenever they need a pick-me-up or want to channel their inner-diva (which may or may not be a good thing for you).

    35. A cleaning pen to help keep the semi-superficial teen in your life's gems sparkling.

    36. An exciting new game for the Nintendo Switch, because you're never too old (or too young) to become a Pokémon trainer.

    37. A paperback of poetry and prose to give teens another outlet to connect to all of those unfamiliar *feelings* they're suddenly experiencing.

    38. A holiday eyeshadow palette from Kylie Cosmetics she can use to replicate her favorite of the young billionaire's Insta-looks.

    39. Slip-on booties with a pointed toe that'll add a little ~somethin' somethin'~ to their winter uniform of an oversized sweater and leggings.

    40. Smartass and Sass, a subscription box for the teen who continues to get grounded for saying something inappropriate (BEEN THERE).

    41. A set of satin pillowcases to make any recipient feel like they're living a life of luxury while also preventing breakage, tangles, and frizz in their hair.

    42. A pair of comfortable ears with vintage Disney movie patterns on them, designed to prevent headaches so any Disney-obsessed teen can wear 'em all day long.
