We don’t have to tell you how much of a roller coaster it can be to have a teenage daughter. She seems to jump between being a girl and a woman from one day to the next. On top of other issues, that can make gift shopping a serious challenge.
Rest assured that it is possible to find a great gift that will make her smile. It may take a bit of research, though, and that’s why you’re here.
If you’re coming up empty, try these ideas for gifts for teenage girls.
Top Gifts for Teenage Girls
Before you hit the mall and scour store after store to find that one perfect item, try these gift ideas.
A Subscription Box
Subscription boxes are all the rage for many types of people, but there’s an especially large selection for teens and young women.
There are subscription boxes for all kinds of topics. Whether your daughter loves cosmetics, fitness, crafts, or other hobbies, there are plenty of options available.
The other great benefit to a subscription box is that it fits any budget. There are boxes at a range of prices, and you can gift as many months of boxes as you want.
The logistics will vary, though. For some boxes, you can pre-pay for a certain number of months. In other cases, you’ll need to set a reminder or a calendar alert to unsubscribe after your chosen number of months.
A Mall Date
Shopping has always been a top hobby for teenage girls. If your daughter would live at the mall if given the chance, you have an easy gift opportunity.
You could give your daughter a gift certificate to her favorite mall that she can use with her friends. Or, you could turn it into a day of parent-daughter time by setting aside a shopping spree day for the two of you.
Statement Jewelry Piece
A great piece of jewelry is always a hit with teenage girls. Jewelry can make an outfit look more put-together, and explore her evolving style.
Statement pieces are especially popular. These are the bold necklaces, earrings, and rings for girls that will add personality to any look. You could even pick up something personalized for your daughters like a monogram necklace or bracelet.
These statement pieces shouldn’t break the bank—you can find plenty of affordable options made from quality materials. You can also get creative by making your own statement jewelry if you are feeling crafty. Not only would it be special, but your daughter will always remember the time and effort you put in.
A Great Pair of Shoes
A gorgeous pair of shoes can take any outfit to the next level, and teenage girls appreciate this power as much as anyone else.
If you’re looking for a splurge gift, go for a designer pair like shoes from the luxury label Balenciaga.
Before you buy, though, get a sense of her tastes. See if there are shoes she seems to be drawn to when you’re shopping. Make sure you get her size correct too, by taking a look at the sizes of the shoes in her closet.
If your daughter is like many teenage girls, she probably has loads of jewelry, but half of it is jumbled into a giant ball. As much as she loves jewelry, it isn’t the easiest thing to store neatly.
You can change that with fun jewelry storage solutions. Necklace trees come in all styles and sizes. The same goes for ring dishes.
If you’re feeling more ambitious, there are also larger jewelry organizers that can hold several types of jewelry from rings to earrings to necklaces.
Telling Her You Care
On the surface, it may seem like teenagers are hard to please, whether they’re boys or girls. The truth is that they want what we all want: a symbol that the people in their lives care about them.
The ideas above for gifts for teenage girls can jumpstart your shopping and help you show her that she’s loved. For more tips on anything from your child’s health to fun activities, check out more articles on our blog.
