What are the best gifts for teenage girls?
Whether for a daughter, niece or a best friend, Quirky-Crate is all about embracing individuality and celebrating everyone's unique quirks. Backed by plenty of happy subscribers, each themed monthly box is curated to deliver 7-10 unconventional lifestyle items, including a limited-edition enamel pin from a featured artist-of-the-month, along with unusually cool bags and accessories, witty stickers, jewelry, treats and more!
Crystals? Check. Natural beauty products like moisturizer and more? Check. Aromatherapy, wholesome snacks for her mini fridge, and spiritual tools? Triple check! Goddess Provisions is packed with goddess-nurturing goodies she can use to cleanse her space, find her center, and grow her spiritual practice. Think of it as a monthly reminder to teen girls to be mindful, stay balanced, and embrace inner beauty.
Buying gifts for teen girls is so tricky, but here’s a common truth: they ALL love crystals. Think about it! Every type of teen will find something to admire about these stunning stones. Maybe they appreciate their beauty. Maybe they believe in their innate energy. Maybe they're fascinated by the science of different stones. Whether the teenage girl in your life is into geology, spirituality, or simply collecting something pretty, they’ll love a subscription to The Cosmic Crystal Box, a monthly box of hand-selected natural crystals, stones, or minerals that also includes interesting info about each included specimen.
The teenage years are often wrought with self doubt and insecurity. While you know she’s perfect and wonderful the way she is, she’s likely to benefit from a little encouragement. That’s where iBbeautiful comes in. This subscription inspires her to be confident and feel her best with 4-6 items for tween and teenage girls to realize how beautiful they are without comparison to others.
If she’s a vsco girl gaga for all things girly, she’ll adore the CHIC & UNIQUE subscription. This cool-girl care package equips her with themed accessories (everything from socks and stationary to sunglasses and stickers) to help express her stylish self at school, on tiktok, and anytime she wants to shine. (No trip to urban outfitters needed!)
A girl and her scrunchies...she can never have too many, and here’s why. Sure, accessorizing appropriately is of utmost importance. (She’s going to want a match for every season and outfit, of course.) But here’s the real story: scrunchies get traded with girlfriends, they’re given to boyfriends to wear on wrists, and they’re gifted to loose-haired teammates in need before the big game. Scrunchies aren’t just hair ties for fashionable girls. They’re style makers, relationship status statements, and social currency for teenagers, so keep her well-stocked with an O.M.G. Scrunchie subscription. She’ll get three too-cool, top-quality new styles to enjoy (and share) every single month.
If you've got a teen in your life who takes her love of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts to the next level, have her join the scores of fans that get a box of uncommon goods and wizarding magic every month. With 4 subscription tiers to choose from, GeekGear packs in 6-10 licensed products, including everything from an exclusively designed t-shirt, exciting collectibles and wands, to wall art, postcards, butter beer and more.
Makeup often ranks high on every teen girl's wish list, and the Slay Glam Box is here to deliver the goods. Skip a trip to Sephora with a beauty box that's delivered right to the front door, bringing 5-7 items, including color palettes, skin care, make-up tools, lip care, and all things beautiful. Put on that primer, practice new contouring techniques, and master the perfect selfie pout with each month's kit.
For less than $10, Loot Pin is a fun and affordable option that makes a sweet Valentine's Day or holiday gift, or a fun just-because gift for the BFF. A fan favorite for many young women, choose to receive the Original tier for 1 fashionably minimalistic enamel pin for everyday wear, the Premium tier for 1 finely detailed, gold-plated pin, or the Original + Premium for both pins each month! Quirky and original, your teen will enjoy designs that range in style from cute to mystical.
The Fearless Nail Art subscription by The Nailed It Box is another budget-friendly option that brings teen girls all the essentials they need to make creative nail art to match any OOTD. Arriving right to the front door, each month's box packs in plenty of nail polish and goodies, including colorful glitter, trendy decals, stamping plates and holo powders, providing the perfect way to keep that mani/pedi up-to-date.
Teen girls can be known for their sass, but they also shine bright! The Burlap Bag celebrates both these qualities in style, sending softly-scented classic candles with a bit of a snarky twist. Depending on the chosen option, each box sends limited-edition, hand-poured candles or wax melts, that feature a new monthly fragrance and bear a witty name, including anything from Gimme Coffee to Unicorn Puke.
A cool option for any teen who's into hands-on creativity and loves to DIY, the Terra Create subscription delivers a monthly opportunity to make trendy, age-appropriate crafts. Bringing enough high-quality natural materials, pro tools, full-color instructions and photographic step-by-steps for 1 new project, like crafting wind chimes, trying tie-dye, or creating a light box, each box makes learning new techniques simple and fun.
On a mission to excite and motivate girls aged 13-18, One Girl Inspired is a monthly gift box that sends a thoughtful mix of products that includes journals and personal development books that help teens build self confidence and work hard to accomplish their dreams and goals.
