Teen Girl Holiday Gift Guide - Under $20

It’s November and time for holiday shopping! Shopping for gifts can be a daunting task, especially if you have teen girls. It seems like their taste in things change with each new product or trend, which can make picking out the perfect gift almost impossible. To try to make things a little easier, I’ve asked my teen daughter to help put together a Teen Girl Holiday Gift Guide with items that are priced under $20.

Teen Girl Holiday Gift Guide – Under $20


Fashion gift guide

Give a gift of fashion. Here are some fun accessories and basics to complete any teen wardrobe. These fashion picks are based on the current styles being worn by the girls in Southern California high schools. Knit infinity scarves in solid colors are being worn with plaid or printed shirts. Basic solid tanks, shirts, and hoodies are a favorite high school wardrobe staple – all these pieces are great for layering. Crop sweater tanks are also popular and worn with high waisted skirts. Oh, and don’t forget a snuggly PJ is always a “must have” in cooler weather.


Girls love their beauty products and these are a few picks from my teenager. One of her favorite hair products is It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product and this is the second year that it’s made our gift guide list. This product is great for girls that like to use heat stylers on their hair. Both my girls love all of the EOS product line and there is a special holiday lip balm set and new lotions too. A body spray made it on this year’s list, Body Fantasies Sweet Berry Spray has a candy sweet smell that both my girls love.

The Boho look is extremely popular and one of our favorite places to find this look is at Cost Plus World Market. There is always an abundance of great affordable jewelry at World Market, but these shiny treasures sell out quickly, so don’t wait too long to buy these.

Planners & School Supplies


My daughter has been asking for a cute planner and we found several stylish ones at Target. The Target website says that these planners are only available online, but we were able to find it in stores on an end cap. Hurry though, these are a great price and selling out quick! And while you’re there, pick up some pens too (hint – the dollar section has some super cute modern pens)! There are also great printable options on Etsy with cute planner stickers. Other school supply options would be a pencil pouch filled with pens or cute paper clips.

Hobbies/Spare Time

Hobby gift guide

Teens spend too much time on electronics, so why not give gifts that help them focus on other things? My daughter loves to read and has requested a gift card to Barnes and Noble or Amazon. She also loves to meet her friends at Starbucks to chat about the latest gossip and a gift card to Starbucks is something she would love. And what teen girl doesn’t like to shop? A gift card to the local mall or a general Visa gift card will definitely be put to good use. Teens also like to be creative and often doodle and draw, which makes a Hipster coloring book, Washi Tape Craft book (see my review), or Manga coloring pens a great gift for the artsy girl.


Decor Gift Guide

When it comes to decor, teens can be really picky. My daughter is currently into string lights, lanterns, decorative pillows, wall decor, geometric accents, and any type of soft throw.

I hope you liked these 2015 Teen Girl Holiday Gift Guide picks. Stayed tuned for a 2015 Tween Girl Holiday Gift Guide, and a Teen Boy Holiday Gift Guide.

  1. I’m always afraid to buy for teens, so I end up giving them a gift certificate. You have many great ideas here, some I wouldn’t have thought of. I’ll have to try one or two this Christmas season.
