17 Best Gifts for Teenage Girls

Teenage girls know what they want — but you don’t always know what that is! You can of course give gift cards (and they’ll be greatly appreciated), but sometimes it’s more fun to receive a gift to unwrap. And it’s a lot more fun to watch them open it!

If you’re looking for more ideas for under the tree, try some of these 17 suggestions for a little inspiration. I took them straight from my teenage niece’s wish list!
