I can’t believe that it’s already this time of year again! One of my favorite things about the holidays is thoughtful gift-giving and I’m so excited that this year I’m doing 1 HUGE gift guide / Christmas wishlist ideas post today. This is specifically aimed at gift ideas for teenage girls and I’ve rounded up cute gift ideas in all different price ranges and all different categories so you’re bound to find something perfect for that lovely girl in your life or something to add to your wishlist!
I’ve divided the gifts up into sections – active, skincare, room, technology, and school & stationary – but don’t feel limited by the sections! I put them together to make this post a little more organized because there are so many ideas on here!
Apple or Garmin watch | Having a watch that tracks your workouts is so helpful and honestly essential if you’re a runner! You can know your pace, distance, and so much more. My brother has a Garmin and likes it, but my sister and I both have apple watches.
Under Armor Backpack | If you’ve been needing a new backpack, adding one to your Christmas list is a great idea! I love my Under Armor backpack, both for sports and just in general.
Waterbottle | I actually have this on my list this year because I do have two different water bottles, but I’ve been needing a new one so I’m hoping to get one for Christmas. Hydroflasks and Stanley’s are both super popular right now!
Adidas Headband & Running Gloves | If you live somewhere cold but still need to get outside and run, then add a headband or running gloves to your list! I personally can’t stand running in gloves – no matter how cold it is – but I know some people who don’t mind them and it would be a great stocking stuffer, too.
Yoga Mat | Yoga mats are so nice to have for both doing workouts and stretching after runs. The one I have is from Evolve but I know All in Motion has nice yoga mats.
Workout or running shoes | Running and workout shoes are something that anyone active always needs! My favorite shoes are Nike, but I have a pair of Brooks that I’m waiting to try, and Under Armor has good shoes, too. Running shoes vary from person to person, so if you are getting these for someone, make sure you know what they like before you buy them.
Track spikes | Track season comes only a few months after Christmas and if you need new spikes, Christmas is a great time to ask for them. I just got a pair of Nike Dragonfly spikes which I am so excited to try, but there are a lot of places that you can get nice spikes from!
Feetures socks | I’ve heard that these are great socks for running so I ordered a pair and they are so nice! Having the right socks can really change how you and your feet feel when you are running. I am always getting blisters when I run, and these are one of the few pairs of socks that don’t give me blisters so I would totally recommend them!
Jade roller | A jade roller is another thing on my Christmas list that I’d love to get! These are supposed to be really good for massaging your skin and helping reduce puffiness!
Bath & Body Works Set | Literally anything from Bath and Body Works would make an amazing gift or stocking stuffer (I especially love their lavender & vanilla shower steamers and everywhere mist, and their lip gloss!) but a set with lotion, perfume, and body wash all in the same scent be a great gift!
Body Scrub | My favorite body scrub is from Body Prescriptions or Tree Hut but really, any basic body scrub would be nice!
Hair Mask | I love using a hair mask on my hair and it makes my hair so soft and feel so nice! My favorite is the Andrew FritzSimmons Fantasy Curls Mask which is perfect for curly hair, but pretty much any hair mask is great!
clothes & accessories
Initial Necklace | I have one of these on my list because they’re so cute and go with pretty much everything!
Converse or Vans | If you want to get someone shoes but don’t want to spend over a $100 on Nike, Converse or Vans are the way to go! I personally like my Converse better (I have black & burnt honey colors) but Vans were my favorite for a long time.
Fuzzy socks | You really can’t go wrong with fuzzy socks! I rarely wear socks unless I’m running or skiing (it’s weird, I know), so I guess there are a few people who wouldn’t use them, but most people aren’t like me and would love a pair of cute fuzzy socks, especially if it’s cold!
Cute Sweaters | Cute sweaters are a staple for winter, and asking for them for Christmas is a great way to get some cute ones. My favorite sweaters are from Old Navy and American Eagle.
Puffer Jacket | Puffer Jackets have been in style for the past few years and they still are this year! I have a black one from North Face and a white one from Spyder so I’d recommend either of those, especially if you have someone you spend a lot of time outside or skis.
school & stationary
Bullet journal | I used to bullet journal a ton, but I stopped a few months ago since my perfectionist self would get so frustrated when a page didn’t turn out how I wanted after working on it for hours, and then I switched to Notion. I know a ton of people who would love a bullet journal, though! Notebook Therapy has some gorgeous journals or you can get a basic one from Amazon.
Custom stationary | My sister made me some custom stationary for my birthday last year and it is so fun to have it with your name on it! I’d definitely recommend this gift for someone who likes writing letters.
Mildliners | Mildliners are my favorite when it comes to highlighters! I use these for sermon notes, my bullet journal, my Bible journal, and pretty much anything!
Washi tape | I used to love washi tape, especially when I was more into bullet journaling and writing letters, and I don’t use it as much anymore, but it’s still great to have around and would be a great, smaller gift!
Books | Books are a perfect gift for pretty much anyone who likes to read! Check out my bookish posts here for books recs for anyone who likes to read middle-grade. A gift card to Barnes & Noble would be an amazing gift, or better yet, an author I follow on Instagram did a reel where she went in and whatever books she was able to get in 2 minutes, her husband would buy for her which seemed like so much fun and also a great gift!
Lap top case | I personally don’t have a case actually on my laptop, but I always put one on before I take it anywhere. These ones from my Amazon have been my favorites, and I can also put a notebook or my Airpods in there.
Anything from the Daily Grace Co. | The Daily Grace Co. is one of my favorite places to get anything Bible-related, and I love their Bible studies. Things from there would be perfect for stocking stuffers or as normal gifts!
Journaling Bible | I love having my journaling Bible to write notes in, highlight verses, and create art. Hosanna Revival has some gorgeous journaling Bibles, but I also love mine from Thomas Nelson.
Silk pillowcase | These are supposed to be good for curly hair but also for just normal hair, too! I’d love to get one of these for Christmas this year!
Swing | I used to have a swing in my room and when I switch rooms with my sister, I’m thinking about putting one in again. We’ll see if I do, but if you don’t want it in your room, you could put it in your sunroom or basement and make a cozy reading area. I had this one in my room for a few years and I loved it so much for reading, watching moves, doing school work, or just sitting.
House plants | Plants are a great addition to brighten and add some life to any room! Succulents are also cute!
Candles | I love candles so much for the cozy aspect they add to any room, especially in the winter or fall. The ones from Sand & Fog smell amazing and last for a long time.
Room & pillow spray | Who doesn’t love room spray? This is great for a stocking or just a smaller gift. My favorite is from Bath & Body Works or Nature Love.
Full length Mirror | I need a full-length mirror since I’m constantly going down to my Mom’s room to use hers. So if you’re like me and you don’t have one, a full-length mirror might be something good to ask for!
Airpods | A few things in this category are a bit more expensive, but if you’re up for spending a bit more money, they’d make great gifts. Starting with Airpods, I got these a few months ago and I use them so much, from running to school work, anyone would use a pair of these, in my opinion.
Airpods case | A cute Airpods case would also be a fun gift! I bought this one from Amazon and even though it’s basic, it’s held up well and I’d recommend it.
Apple watch | My Apple watch is honestly one of my favorite things. I mainly use it for running and working out, but it’s nice to have it for texting and other things! If you’re like me and you love a deal (who doesn’t?!), you can get the same watch that’s $280 from Apple online at Walmart for $110, so if you’re buying it for someone, go check out that deal!
Apple Watch Bands | If you already have a watch, bands are a great gift and stocking stuffer! You can get cute ones from Amazon or TJMaxx.
Phone Case | Anyone can use a cute and fun phone case! Thread Wallets and Casetify are pretty popular, or you can get one from pretty much anywhere. Elevated Faith also has some cute faith ones!
Camera | If you’re a YouTuber, blogger, influencer, or just enjoy taking pictures, a camera might be a great thing to add to your list! For a starter camera for photos, I’d recommend any Canon Rebel, but I love my t7. For videos, I know that a lot of people use and love the Canon G7 x Mark II.
Camera accessories | If you have a camera, a fun camera strap is so much more fun than just the basic one that comes with the camera. I have a camera lens travel cup and it’s so funny but also works well to put drinks in! A camera bag is also pretty essential if you take your camera to a lot of places to make sure it doesn’t get damaged.
now, it’s your turn!
Alright guys, if you made it to the end of this you are a trooper and are devoted! 🥰 What are some things you would add to this list? Happy Christmas shopping!
