25 Christmas gift ideas for teen girls they’ll really love (2023 edition)

25 Christmas gift ideas for teen girls they’ll really love (2023 edition)

I’ve put together some gift ideas for teen girls that will solve all your Christmas shopping dilemmas. There’s a gift ideas for teen boys over here too – both lists are good for any kind of teen. I find the older the kids get, the less gender “compartmentalisable” they are.

These Christmas gift ideas for teen girls (or boys) (I’ll stop now) cover every kind kid. Whether your girl is sporty, nerdy, frilly or fancy, there’s something here for her. Let’s face it, teen girls are not difficult to buy for. They tend to love many, many things.

A quick guide to gift buying for teen girls

1.  Make it about her

We say ‘teen girl’ and lump them all in together, but that’s not right. Every person is unique and just because she’s a teen girl, doesn’t mean she’s into Pretty Little Liars and bulldogs… no, wait, they are ALL into bulldogs right now…

2. Inspire creativity

This is my basic rule for any gift for any kid. Make it something that makes them want to make something.

3. Get something useful

What do they need. What can they use.

4. Give an experience

I’m generally quite over giving stuff and like to give experiences instead. A trip to the movies, an adventure park, a manicure, a picnic in the park. PS – Books are an experience.

Check out my favourite gift ideas for teen girls this season.
