Teen girls can be hard to buy for which is why we’ve compiled a list of gift ideas for teens. Many items on this list will be loved by boys too! This isn’t your usual gift guide for teen girls, as our girls are not very girly. They like football, anime, geeky products, Pokemon and more. Some do like a little makeup but we’ve tried to stay away from it so we can bring you a gift guide with a difference. We’re sure you’ll find gift ideas here for him, and for you too. Without further ado, here’s what we’ve found this Christmas.
Roxi from Electricjukebox.com
Roxi is a brilliant product that brings the whole family together. If you don’t relish the idea of a board game this year you should consider Roxi. It’s a jukebox for the whole family and connects to your TV. You receive a year’s subscription to thousands of tracks, a microphone and the kit. We love it.
Ariana Grande Perfume
Even if she doesn’t like makeup she will like to smell great and this perfume from Ariana Grande ticks all the boxes. If she’s a teen now, she’s no doubt grown up watching Sam and Cat and so will be very familiar with Ariana Grande.
Pentel Dual Glitter Pens
Stationery is one gift all girls have asked for this year, as a teen girl can never have enough pens. These Pentel Dual glitter pens are a great stocking filler and unlike others, they show up on dark paper too.
The Betty Box is one of our favourite subscription boxes of all time. It’s aimed at teen girls going through puberty and includes everything they need, along with a few treats. It’s happy and positive and merry and bright, while it delivers a box every month. This is the gift that keeps on giving and is perfect for any teen girl. This is why it’s won one of our Top Product Awards!
Playertek Football Performance Enhancer
This could also be a good addition to the gifts for him guide as it enhances football performance through the use of a device. You can choose the size of top, from extra small to extra large. It’s ideal for any budding football player. Look it up! It makes a great gift for both boys and girls, and with girl’s football on the rise, we couldn’t resist including it in our teen girls guide. We think she’ll love it.
Magnitone First Step
We’ve reviewed magnitone before and are impressed with the quality of clean it delivers, which is why we love this First Step gift box. It’s soft and gentle, in a lovely dusty pink, while the unit is a little smaller for smaller hands. It’s a great way to introduce a teen girl to the joys of a regular skincare routine.
Regatta Desotto III Mid Layer Coat
Clothes for Christmas may be a little staid but this mid layer coat from Regatta will be well received. It has special tailoring which doesn’t hide the figure when worn, while keeping the wearer dry and clean. It’s trendy without being over the top and really functional too. Our teen girl adores it, and she’s not so easy to please.
Zelda Triforce Light
The Zelda triforce light is a bedside lamp with a difference. It omits just enough glow to read a book and looks amazing on a shelf. Feed her gaming ambitions.
RCA by Venturer Mercury 7L
This easy to use tablet is a great affordable device for any teen girl asking for a tablet this Christmas. The apps can be downloaded from Google Play and it has all the functionality of an iPad, just at a fraction of the cost.
Shaeffer R2D2 Pen
Another that could be in the gifts for him section, the R2D2 pen from Shaeffer is the ultimate stationary gift for a teen girl or boy. It comes presented in a black leather case and writes smoothly and without fuss, while looking great.
Office Monster Pukka Pads
The Pukka Pads are great stocking fillers for making sure she has everything she needs for school. Girls and boys always have so much to write, to jot down, that it makes sense to choose pads with a little quality like these ones.
Buddy Hooks and Lego Lunch Boxes from A Place for Everything
The Buddy hooks are ideal for a teenagers bedroom, they look funky on a wall and are sturdy enough to hold a good sized backpack. The Lego lunch boxes are the ideal size for a lunch on the go, while they can also be used for bedroom storage.
Ironman Cookie Jar
The Ironman cookie jar is an ideal gift for the girl or boy that loves superheroes. It has a generous capacity and looks great on the shelf, it doesn’t even have to hold cookies. We love it.
Filofax have some amazing journals and diaries available right now which are ideal for girls who like to write a blog or a journal. You can remove and add pages at will, and customise to your own needs while they come in a range of fancy metallic finishes.
Orla Kiely Mug Personalised from msmugs.com
If she’s old enough for a cup of tea, she’s old enough for a good quality bone china mug to have it in. The personalised offerings from msmugs are stylish and grown up, which is why we believe she’ll love the Orla Kiely mug.
Harry Potter Patronus Luminart
There are few girls who don’t adore Harry Potter and this lumniart feeds their imagination and passion for all things dark arts. It sports Harry’s patronus in the form of a stag and looks great even when it’s not lit up. We’re giving it our Top Product Award as it’s impressed every person that’s seen it hanging on the wall!
The spearmark satchel is a bright colourful lunch bag that keeps food cool during the summer and winter months. With generous capacity and incredible design, we love its take on the satchels of old. You can add a class name or even a photograph, it’s sure to be well received this Christmas.
Soda Stream White Fizzy
Last year every girl wanted a slush or smoothie maker. This year it’s back to the eighties with a Soda Stream, however there’s nothing dated about this model. The sleek design looks great on the kitchen counter, while it’s lightweight and easy to use for any teen. Make tap water sparkle with a product she’ll love as much as you did in the eighties!
Opro Gum Shield
Whether she plays football, rugby or hockey, she’ll love these original gum shields from Opro. Generously sized, we’d trailled them to fit around braces and they worked perfectly. With a range of designs, they really stand out and add a little glamour to the pitch. A great stocking filler.
Skylar from Charlie Bears
Move over Hedwig there’s a new owl in town and this one is obviously created with love, care and attention. Cuddles are mandatory as Skylar is fluffy but sturdy and will add the Harry Potter look to any teen girl’s bedroom. He’s also extremely collectible, and designed in the Charlie bear shop in Cornwall. We’ve fallen in love and think you will too with this impressive owl.
Remember Sphero last year? This year there’s a mini version that can be controlled from a phone. It’s cute and colourful and packs a multitude of features to make it a great gift for any boy or girl. We loved playing with this and we’re sure it will offer bundles of fun on Christmas Day.
I used to be an Apple convert but since discovering the Honor 9 I can no longer say that I am. This phone has features that Apple users are waiting for from the iPhone, but may be waiting a while. The camera is adept at taking images at night which is something the iPhone is missing. It also has an incredible 64GB storage so you don’t have to compromise on APPS, videos or photos. It’s sleek with an edge to edge display and light and cool to the touch. Easy to operate it has a crystal clear screen that makes everything seem brighter and more in focus. In short, once again, we’re in love. This wins one of our Top Product awards as it’s converted me from iOs to Android, and I really don’t think I’ll look back. Move over Apple, there’s better phones out there. If you’re considering a phone for your teen this Christmas, choose this one. She can Instagram, snapchat and WhatsApp in style with the Honor 9.
New Balance Accessories Backpack
As soon as our teen girl spotted this she wanted it. That’s a testement to the sleek design and multiple functionality of this sturdy backpack that keeps all items safe in the one place. Comfortable to wear (we’re told) and stylish enough to turn heads, it’s a big thumbs up for the back pack from New Balance.
Sony Walkman NW-A35
This is a walkman but not as we know it. It is high resolution audio compatible, it connects to Bluetooth with one touch and has a digital amplifier plus a crystal clear screen. It’s easy to use, it looks fantastic and it sounds even better. For those serious about sound quality and style, this walkman is a dream.
