Shopping for presents can be surprisingly stressful. You want to make sure you give that special person something they will love, but often it’s challenging to get inspired. If you’re shopping for your teenage daughter, niece, sister or cousin, read on for fun ideas for gifts for girls.
A teenager’s bedroom is often their kingdom. It’s the place where they can get a little privacy and express their personality, usually through their choice of decoration. Whether that’s a cool and modern design or laid-back boho decor, you can find accessories to suit any girl’s taste. Bearing that in mind, when deciding on a gift for the teenage girls in your life, you can never go wrong with some cute pieces for their bedroom, such as:
Teenagers tend to spend hours studying, socializing or just lounging in their rooms, so comfort is essential. A funky rollaway bed is ideal for friends to chill out on when they visit, and it doubles as an extra bed for sleepovers. Because it rolls up, it doesn’t require too much storage space, and it is portable enough for your teen to take to her friends’ slumber parties too.
Picture frames are always a popular gift: Whether the teenage girl in your life fills her frames with snaps of her besties, her original artwork or pictures of her favorite band, she’ll love personalizing her space. The bonus is, she won’t ruin your walls by sticking up photos and posters with Scotch tape.
Creative lighting is one of the best ways to make a room cozy, and twinkling lights such as florals or artsy pom pom fairy lights are just as decorative when they are switched off.
Like fairy lights, candles make a room lovely and cozy and make it smell great! To make your gift last longer, choose candles that come in beautiful holders, suitable for use long after the candles are burnt down, such as a cute secret message candle. Always make sure the gift recipient knows about safe practices for using candles.
If a teenage girl’s bedroom is her private physical space, her cell phone is her digital one. For many teens, their phone is their most prized possession. In fact, 84% of teenagers in the U.S. now have their own phones. She’ll be delighted to receive adorable gifts for her phone. You could even purchase a couple of these items and give her a mini gift basket.
A phone pocket is a perfect way to stash some cash or a card, so you don’t always have to carry a cumbersome purse. The teen girl in your life may also like to keep photos or meaningful notes in it, so she always has them with her. A cute phone pocket also adds a decorative element to your phone, and many come with an attached phone ring that acts as a stand.
Phone screens get dirty so quickly, and you don’t always have a cleaner on hand to wipe them. That’s why stick-on screen cleaners are so convenient: You stick them on the back of your phone or tablet until you need them. This might not sound like the most exciting gift, but they come in all kinds of fun designs that add a bit of color to a phone case.
Phone chargers are relatively ugly things, but they are a necessary part of modern life, so why shouldn’t they be pretty? Your teenage daughter, niece, sister or cousin would be pleased as punch to upgrade her standard charger cord for a stylish alternative. If you’re unsure what type of phone she has, opt for a three-in-one charging cord to be safe.

Developing a personal style is an integral part of being a teenager. Teens often put a lot of careful thought into what they wear. Buying clothing or accessories for a teen girl can be a great hit, but you’ve got to think about her personal style. Pay attention to the kinds of accessories and clothing she wears to ensure you choose something that matches her taste. A few ideas include:
Jewelry-making kits are fantastic gifts because the recipient gets to have fun being crafty and can keep the jewelry they make. You know if she makes it, she’s going to love it.
If you’re not quite sure what your teenage relative likes to wear, how about getting her some cute loungewear? Comfy onesies, pretty pajamas, and cozy hoodies always go down well.
Stick-On Clothing Patches
Embroidered patches are an excellent way to personalize an item of clothes, whether it’s a jean jacket, a shirt, or a backpack. These days, you don’t even need to know how to sew to customize your clothes. You can use convenient stick-on patches that any teen would love.
