Girls rule the world! But teenage girls can be the sweetest or the sulkiest person you know, depending on the moment. Which is understandable, after all. (It’s not easy careening from childhood to adulthood.)
For those of us whose teenage years are a distant memory, it can be just as challenging to find holiday gifts for teenage girls that hover somewhere between dolls and...Louis Vuitton luggage.
The bottom line with giving gifts to this age group? You really just want them to think you’re a cool old person (and by old, we mean anyone over 21). Which is why we’ve curated the best gifts you can buy online for teenage girls -- sparing you from conducting a whole bunch of research online (put your phone down and stop following the #VSCO).
Below, the best gifts online for that teen girl who wants it all (or maybe none of it, depending on her mood).
Your budding eco-warrior is going to go on lots of adventures while saving the world. This backpack is the backpack that will accompany her everywhere she travels (even if it’s just to summer camp). She’ll love the color and the fact that grown city-philes sport this brand all. the. time. Also? It’s made entirely from recycled plastic bottles.
Well, the party don’t start ‘til she walks in (can’t you already hear her saying, “Mommmmmm, stopppp...”). That’s because she’s the one with the portable Bluetooth speaker, which can broadcast any playlist on her phone anywhere she likes.
OK, so maybe she’s not getting the wheels of her dreams, this year anyway. She’ll still love this sweet ride -- a reusable (and adorable!) tin packed with three essential cosmetics that help take her makeup lewk (that’s what the kids say) from zero to 60.
The sophisticated version of the plastic bead kit she spent hours with as a child, this DIY jewelry set features Karatasi paper beads that are hand-rolled by artisans in Uganda. All proceeds go to empowering women living in poverty, meaning that the bracelets she makes (there are supplies for up to five) will do good as well as look good.
She’ll think you finally appreciate her bold sense of style. You’ll know that when she’s wearing this coat, you’ll always be able to pick her out in a crowd.
