It is so much fun watching others open their gifts especially when you are pretty sure you nailed it! So in order to help you pick out just the right gift, I created a lovely Christmas gift guide for teen girls. Obviously, I interviewed my own resident teen, Little Red. But we also chatted with some of her friends to see what is popular. Discover what is trending now for Christmas with this guide to Christmas gift ideas for teen girls.**Updated for 2021**

Sparkle for the Holidays with These Beautiful Make-Up Sets
Practically every girl, I talked with mentioned wanting make-up. So the classics are still popular! Find make-up sets in fun designs, eye-catching nail polish and make-up brushes in unicorn style. This beautiful set of Butter Glosses by NYX is sure to please with make-up quality appropriate for teens and older! I love the Angel Food Cake color as it looks so great on everyone! Not sure what kind of make-up? You can also spring for a Sephora gift card!
Have you tried make-up blenders? These are THE BEST! I had no idea until I received some last Christmas! Your make-up will look so much better when you use your new blenders. Buy some for your daughter’s stocking … and grab some for yourself!
Your favorite girl will always be ready to travel with this set of make-up brushes and travel holder. I love that my brushes are organized and stay upright!

Decorations for Their Rooms
There are so many fun options for decorating a teen’s room. Does your teen love all things Hamilton? Buy these adorable Hamilton stickers for them to decorate their notebooks and Chromebooks! And most teens love decorative lights, an inspiring saying or a beautiful decal to beautify their room! Also the camera phone lights are very popular for TikTok and YouTube users so you may see them popping up on wish lists this year!
Help your teen take care of her fir pets with this chic candle lighter! Teen Red received one of these from her brother last year. And the lighter has been one of her favorite gifts!!
Gift for Their Animals
Many teen girls love animals. So an accessory for their animal really hits the spot! Look at these too cute options for their best furry friend!
Teens still love “toys” so this indoor cat pointer is such a cute idea for the cat loving girl!
Shoes Are a Must for Any Holiday List
Shoes were another frequently requested item. Shoes make a wonderful gift as they can be both practical and fun! Add a pop of style to any outfit with these winter duck boots. Boots are very popular whether it is outdoor rain boots, snow boots or dress boots!
Check out these Chelsea Lug Boots! Your special girl will be styling in these!! I wasn’t sure if this style would catch on, but I have seen a lot of girls wearing these this fall so they are definitely super trendy.
Gifts for the Crafty Girl
We have several girls in our family that love to create and make. So instead of just buying a gift, give them the tools to create their own! Or create a gift basket with common goodies that are used to make bath and body products like these lotion bars or whipped body butter.
Popular Gift Cards for Teen Girls
So the most requested gift cards were Sephora, Bath & Body Works, Dick’s Sporting Goods, JoAnn’s Fabrics, American Eagle and Claire’s! And of course, gas cards and Starbucks gift cards are always popular too!
Hope you found lots of ideas to spark your imagination for your holiday shopping list!
