Over 300 Teen Girl Gift Ideas – The ULTIMATE List


This is an old gift guide. It’s not of the best quality and it hasn’t been updated for years. Here’s 2016’s (MUCH) better Teen Girl Gift Guide. I’d seriously recommend you look at that one instead.

Do you need a gift guide choc-full of great gift ideas for teen girls? Are you looking to pad out your wishlist, win your daughter over in the divorce, or get your best friend a gift she’ll never forget? Well then, you’ve come to the right place! This is an extensive list of over 300 Teen Girl Gift Ideas – it is the ultimate list of gift ideas this Christmas. So grab a cup of tea, get your wallet out and scroll down.



The aim for this year is to present presents (see what I did there?) that teenagers that don’t like presents will love; presents that teenagers who don’t know what they want; who are emo or tomboyish; who are overly girly or on their phone 24/7; who – well, the point is, it doesn’t matter who they are -there’s something here for everyone. And I’ve even arranged it into loads of pretty little categories so you don’t have to skim through over 500 lines of text. Aren’t I a helpful cookie?

By the way, I actually have my own store (yes, this is shameless self-advertisement for an entire line. I’m terrible. How on earth do I live with myself?) so check it out – http://www.zazzle.co.uk/okaaythen

And, in this new edition, vague presents – clothes, CDs, DVDs – come equipped with a handy mini-store widget. This is basically where I built a personal wishlist for this items that you can peruse and buy. So, instead of just telling you to buy DVDs, I now have a lovely widget telling you exactly what DVDs I would recommend.

So, without further ado, let’s get onto the list! (Can you tell I’m writing this at 1am? I feel like you can tell…)


First things first . . .

Most Pinned Gifts!

I know a lot of you have been directed here through Pinterest, so I decided to place the most Pinned gifts up here for you to find more easily. (Because, yes, crawling through 300 gifts to find that one can be quite long!)

  1. The best gift guide for teen girls – perfect for all occasions, such as Birthday presents, Christmas, – and all selected by a teenager!:
    Poop Emoji Portable Charger – $20
  2. mean girls assorted engraved pencil set 6 lavender pencils. that is So fetch. I know right.
    Mean Girl Pencils – $6

Generic Gifts

By generic gifts, I don’t mean “ugh, so boring and overdone – everyone has heard of these”; I mean generically pleasing. Whether you hate Hula Hoops or love Kit-Kats, (Hula hoops the crisps. Nobody could hate Hula Hoop the toys. If you do, you’re probably a terrorist. Then again, how could you hate the crisps? Seriously, stay away from me, you strange and slightly scary person.) these gifts (should) make you a happy duck.

Please still use your common sense though.

I wouldn’t want to be responsible for a teen throwing an offensive gift at your head, and it somehow ending in your unfortunate demise. Well, I wouldn’t mind – as long as there was no legal proof. So, in very clear grey writing, please try to keep in mind who you’re buying for.

cheap teen gift ideas under $5

Teenage Girl Gifts Up to $5 

I created an aStore specifically for presents under $5 – as we’re going to be very familiar with aStores by the end of this post let me quickly explain what they are. They are basically a mini online store that’s filled with items I’ve personally selected off of Amazon and grouped together for quick viewing – so instead of having to read through all my ideas below you can just skip to a selection of over 150 $5 or less items. This option is at the top of all the categories. This year’s gift guide is high-tech, bitches. Y’all don’t even need to read. Um, why did you suddenly turn Southern?  The moment took me.  aStore – Here!

    1. Sweets. A slight cop out to some – a wise choice for others. I personally love the idea of getting sweets as a gift, because I prefer smaller gifts – mainly because there seems to be a direct correlation between how small a gift is and how well it is wrapped.
      Also, if you now their favourite sweets, you can just buy them a load for a cheap and personal and guaranteed to be well received gift.
    2. Cheap jewellery. As I love you all, I created an aStore specifically dedicated to jewellery (which is essentially where I scrolled through Amazon and selected the best things I could find and arranged them into price ranges) so you can browse a specially chosen selection that are specifically in your price range. And what am I? A teen. So who have I chosen for? Teens!
    3. Chokers
      Chokers are so in right now that you just can’t go wrong with buying someone one.

  5. Ecosphere. These are fucking cool – essentially what they are is a- I’m just going to copy and paste the description from their site.
    This is a very special little gift indeed. The world’s first completely enclosed ecosystem. It’s a feat created by NASA Scientists – a totally self contained, self sustaining miniature universe wrapped in a clear, glass shell. You really have to see it to believe it.Every single EcoSphere contains a totally sealed ecosystem. There are teeny tiny micro-organisms inside – they’re the shrimp and algae you can see in the picture swimming around in the clear ‘soup’ of filtered sea-water. You don’t need to feed the little shrimp or clean the water, all you need to do is provide a safe environment with lots of indirect natural or artificial light. Your ecosphere will last roughly 3 years. But it’s really not unusual for them to last much longer, some are still going strong after a whopping 10 years.

    Penny Board- Skateboard – Multiple Designs – $70
  8. (For artistic teens) A graphics tablet! I personally need one of these – and a scanner. (If you don’t know what a graphics tablet is, it’s basically a tool to allow you to draw directly onto a computer. It’s great if you like digital art.)

The Jesus-Christ-When-You’re-Old-And-Senile-I’ll-Make-Sure-Your-Nurses-Are-All-Hot-And-Wear-Short-Tight-Uniforms level gifts that will get you in your teen’s good books . . . forever – GIFT BOXES Included

  1. I have an entire post dedicated to gift hampers here, for your convenience
  2. A complete wardrobe revamp. (Please, jesus.)
  3. A complete room revamp.
  4. Day trip shopping in Paris with friends. (If you take the Eurostar, you can literally drive into France. It’s so cool.) Offer to pay for them and a friend, or offer to take them to Paris for the day. You could go shopping, or Disneyland Paris.
  5. -Idea/Story Break- So last year this was a present  I included – “Winter sleepover in a box”. A gift I thought up for my cousin actually, as she lives in Devon and it gets bloody freezing down there. Basically, you get a pretty box and in it you put all the essentials for a winter sleepover – fluffy socks, a movie, popcorn, a blanket, hot chocolate mix, biscuits and a pair of pyjamas. We brits need our ways to battle the cold, after all – and it inspired a range of my favourite things – gift boxes! (There has been way too many italics in this section. I’m just saying.) But, essentially, I created my own gift boxes and stored them in helpful aStores. Okay? Okay. This isn’t The Fault In Our Stars, Mia, stop.
  6. “Managing Your Money” Gift Box – aStore is here
    A gift box for those teens who need a bit of help managing their money.
  7. “Nail Art Perfection” Gift Box – aStore is here

    There are so many cute nail designs – and now you can give your teen the gift of being able to do them all themselves!
  8. Marvel Madness Gift Box – aStore is here

    Since Avengers (and obviously before, but Avengers really made it mainstream) everyone is in love with Marvel. This is fucking great because Marvel merch is 1. awesome and 2. easy to find.
  9. “Organise Your Life” Gift Box – aStore here

    More one for those that love school, or need a bit of help organising themselves for it. A gift box complete with everything you need to get back on track.
  10. “Tumblr Threw Up On Me” gift box. Let me explain this a little bit; so around 80% of teens have Tumblr. (I made up that statistic. But still, my point remains.) Even those of us that don’t have tumblr still kind of use it – because it is literally everywhere. Famous pictures, quotes, T-Shirts, people . . . Tumblr is everywhere. And we love it. So this gift box is all the best things to come out of Tumblr – and any teen girl would love it. – aStore here

  11. Complete Charm Bracelet; this is an idea that I’ve had for ages – although I want to get people charms as presents every occasion to build up and have them all really meaningful. But a good present would be a complete charm bracelet with charms that relate to the teen. (Eg. their favourite animal, colour, first letter of their name etc) – aStore here
  12. A complete makeup giftbox – aStore here
  13. A complete jewellery box – aStore here
  14. A kindle filled with books
  15. gold iPhone.

    What a great tradition to start.... Have family put money in mason jar throughout year. At Christmas time, choose someone to bless (anonymously). On Christmas eve, deliver by Ring and Run. Must read the book
  18. Chocolate Lovers – aStore

  19. Hampers! Hampers are . . . ah, God, they’re just the best. If you open a present to see its a hamper, it’s like another present. If you want to give someone a really great present, get them a hamper – and do it big. Go hard or go home.
  20. Guylian Hamper (okay, so this one is kind of small, but it’s Guylian so allow me.)
    Guylian Hamper 800g – £29.95
  21. An even bigger Guylian hamper.
    Chocolate Gift Hamper… Chocolate Sensations – £44.50
  22. One last chocolate hamper, because I really want to hammer home what a good idea these are (and I’m drooling look at them)
    Mega Deluxe Chocolate Hamper Gift Box – £32.90

Presents On The Cheap

Okay, so by presents on the cheap I really am looking at ways to save yourself money at Christmas without having to resort to tack or just generally terrible gift ideas.

So, here a few of my main ideas:

  1. DIY gift boxes. Don’t shake your head at me – I know you’re thinking “that means I have to buy the stuff myself”, but that’s where it comes in handy. For example, last year I raided Primark and Poundland and cheap shops like that and piled all the stuff together, usually mixed in with a good few gifts too.
    I’m not very good at explaining.
    In Primark, for example, they sell sets of jewellery – so I bought a few sets of necklaces (you all know those tiny, cute, four packs) and rings and bracelets etc – then went to Poundland and bought things like nice mugs, candles, incense, photo frames, big packs of sweets etc and then went to WHSmiths and bought a bunch of books off clearance (they’re like 5op-£4 each) and came home with bags of stuff, but only £30 spent.
    I then took everything out of the packaging and spread it all out – which is when you really realise how much you have. Once you can see all the stuff you’ve bought, you can divide it into seperate gift boxes and wa-la! You’re done! I know you might be a bit sceptical, so I’m going to include what I managed to salvage last year.
    Mum: clearance autobiography of one of her favourite comedians (Dawn French), a set of frangrance oils (she has a burner) – poundland, a box of chocolate – Poundland, a necklace, a bracelet and a ring – Primark, and a mug (part of a couples set) from poundland.
    I’m not going to explain what I mean by wholesale, I’m just going to show you.

    20 pairs of earrings for £1.99
    20 Pairs Rhinestone Crystal Plastic Round Earrings Studs Pin Jewelry Wholesale New arrival
    These are just a few examples, but wholesale is a really cheap idea.
  3. Amazon Outlet. So most of you know about Outlet stores, right? Basically shops where all the unwanted items from brands go – so if Boohoo or Next doesn’t sell all its stock before the new season comes in, they’ll go to an Outlet store and you’ll be able to buy something that was £100 for £10. Amazon has it’s own one of these (usually for over-stock) which is . . . well, pretty damn amazing. Amazon Outlet (Let me include an example actually)

Bestie Gifts

I realise that a lot of people may not need this category, so feel free to skip it – but, if you are at a loss for what to get your teenager, you could get them something for both them and their best friend. Okay there was so much cute best friend jewelry that I had to make a separate section.

First up on the best friend gift section, let’s hit you with some cute.

BFF Jewelry

DIY Done Right

Here are a few Artsy Present Ideas – I have a Pinterest board specifically for Artsy Christmas here if you want a lot more. I tried to stick to things that are very much doable – and can be tailored to somebodies specific personality.

  1. Polaroid Mannequin
    Vintage photograph skirt
  2. Treat box!
    Birthday Treat Box! Such a cute idea! - could do a grown up version with crafty bits for crafty friends
  3. Sweet Tree
    DIY Candy Tree.
  4. “In Case Of Emergency…”
    Hahahaha...cute gift idea! Dollar store frame and chocolate
  5. “Necklace in a walnut”
    leuk om een sieraad in te pakken Cute diy gift packaging for a fairy necklace or any other small gift. How sweet
  6. Gum bouquet!
  7. Cupcake In A Jar
  8. Shadow Saving Box
    A photoframe money box – stick a photo of whatever the teen is saving up for (toTRAVEL THE WORLD, a certain college etc) and put it in a photoframe, then cut a slit in for money!

Interesting Ways To Give Money (I feel like this is an important section.)


  1. Money Pizza!
    Money Gift Idea - fun gift idea for graduation, birthday or anytime! ....or for when someone is getting their first apartment.
  2. Money balloons! This would be cute in helium balloons too – especially on birthdays, sneak into your teens room with helium balloons filled with money and confetti. Cute.
    For my friends graduation, instead of giving her a card with cash in it, I slid dollar bills into balloons. Cute/ cheap/ creative gift:)Sneak in your child's bedroom during the night before their birthday and release balloons for them to wake up to! Oh you know I will do this :) I LOVE birthdays!Money Balloons - fill with rolled up bills and confetti....a cool way to present money as a gift, esp for a young person -I Love the 2 dollar balloons.
  3. Money chocolate box (and then you can eat the chocolate first too. Win.)
    money gift for Xmas!
  4. “Open when” letters – “open when”, you need a new coat, “open when” you need a pick me up, “open when” you’re craving chocolate etc.
    Such a great idea for anyone leaving home for an extended amount of time. Will use when my daughters go abroad!
  5. “Rainy day umbrella”
    For a
  6. Money in a sweets jar
    cover toilet paper roll, adhere and put inside mason jar. Fill around the roll with favorite candy. This is the COOLEST way ever to give money!!

Gift Cards

The best gift card (for me at least) is an Amazon gift card because everything – and I do literally mean everything – you could get another gift card for is on Amazon. Then again, I just pretty much adore Amazon (it is my heaven as every site I use redeems using Amazon vouchers), so I may be biased.

Greeting Card Voucher – Amazon.co.uk Gift Card – £10-500 (Other designs available)

Gift Box Voucher – Amazon.co.uk Gift Box – £40-£250

Printable Voucher – Printable Amazon.co.uk Gift Certificate – £1-£1,000
