You might be looking for a gift to give your daughter or something for your girlfriend but being unable to choose something, you have decided to look for a solution online. The stores are stocked with presents that a teenager needs or wants but to know the best options for her is definitely not an easy task. Teenagers are very unpredictable which makes it even more difficult to decide on the best gift to give her. To help you in your quest, here is a list of gifts for teenage girls that can narrow your search (and probably end it):

Nothing speaks more about your feelings than a personalized message and a lot of stores have options for messages to be imprinted on soft, cushy pillows. They come in attractive colors and shapes so you have a wide variety to choose from when gifting her something she can sleep on everyday. If you know her favorite color, that’s going to help you a lot to narrow down the selection process and this is something every teenage girl likes because it looks cute and lovable.
Customized initial necklaces
Why not give her a piece of jewelry she’ll cherish forever with her initial on it? Malls are full of jewelry shops with necklaces that can be made from scratch so you can practically design the necklace for her. These gifts are trendy and she can wear it all the time so it makes perfect sense.
Skateboards and roller blades
If you are looking for a gift for a girl who’s more into sports than mascara, get her something she enjoys like a skateboard, roller blades, or a basketball with a hoop. Every girl is not expected to enjoy similar things so don’t be disappointed with her lack of feminine attributes. Instead, if you appreciate her ability to shoot the hoop or play ball then give her something she enjoys, she will like it even more.
They are trendy, cute and useful. Girls just fawn over bean bags and giving her one that she can keep in her room to enjoy a book in is going to win you brownie points. Bean bags are comfortable and very relaxing and it’s adorable enough for her friends to love it as well. If you get something for that can be enjoyed not only by her but also by her friends, she’s going to love it.
Make up kits
Why not give her a rite of passage for this birthday? As your 12 year old steps into the teenage years, give a box of good quality makeup including the basics like a face powder, eye liner and mascara. Don’t give her something you don’t approve though.
Here is something that never goes out of vogue. Stuffed toys are enjoyed by teenager girls irrespective of how old they are, whether or not they show it. Something fuzzy and warm to sleep with or just to cuddle every now and then works with girls even when they become adults so when they are young, they’ll love it even more.
Temporary designer tattoos
This might not be every parent’s dream gift for their daughters but the good news is that it doesn’t carry any of the attributes a tattoo is associated with apart from the fact that you can out it anywhere on your body. These tattoos are temporary so they either peel out or wash off after a couple of weeks and they look very colorful and cute. These don’t damage the skin because there is no penetration involved in applying these on the body. And a gift like this will probably make you the most lovable person in her world.
Trendy clutches and bags
If she has a fetish for bags and clutches, then why not help her by adding some more to her collection? Better still; why not encourage her to start her collection of bags? This is a useful gift since she can take it out with her whenever she goes out to keep things in it and it’s very attractive and funky to look at. There is a bag that goes with every personality so you will find something for your girl.
What can carry more charm than a charm bracelet? Make a list of things that are important for her, things that she’d like to achieve and places she’d like to go to and buy her a bracelet corresponding to that. Even though charm bracelets originated as an amulet for warding off evil, they carry a strong symbolism of a girl’s aspirations and desires now so help her to realize her potential and look cute at the same time.
If your daughter/girlfriend loves music, nothing can be better than an iPod. With a huge memory, she can save her favorite music and videos and enjoy them at her convenience. This is a must have for everyone irrespective of how old they are so why not be the first one to introduce it to her?
Play stations and Nintendo-Wii
A must have for all gaming enthusiasts. It’s sleek, compact and if your girl likes video games, there’s nothing she’s going to love more than a video game of such quality.
Encourage the budding photographer in her by gifting a camera that she can use to store memories. Digi-cams come in a range of attractive colors including purple, pink (two colors girls love) and black (for your tomboy) so just pick a shade that goes with her personality or is her favorite color and let her click through life.
This is what I call a smart and practical gift. With everything that’s going on around us, cell phones have become a necessity rather than a luxury so why not give it on her birthday and make yourselves the best parents ever? It helps you keep track of where your teenagers are and gives them the privilege to contact you if they get stuck somewhere. It’s practical and it’s cool.
Designer perfumes and dresses
Every girl wants a Gucci or a Chanel to adore their dresser and themselves when they go for special occasions. If high fashion is not something you want to introduce your kids to, there are always perfumes that come without these big tags and they are just as good. Pair it with a trendy dress or a tee and jeans and you’ve got yourselves a winner.
She’s a teenager so she might not always like what you buy her. That really depends on her choice rather than being a teenager so give her the gift of freedom. Get a gift certificate from her favorite store and let her buy something she likes. It’ll be within your budget so her present won’t rip your pockets.
This is always a hit with girls. I mean, who doesn’t like shoes right? If you know what kind she likes and her shoe size, get it for her. Otherwise, take her to the mall and let her choose. Either ways, she’s going to love it.
