Are you looking for the right Christmas gift for the teenager in your life?
Well, you are in luck, because I have two teens and together we’ve put together a list of Christmas gift ideas for teens! As we think of more teen gift ideas I will come back and update this list.
Best Gifts for Teenagers
This gift guide for teens is broken up into multiple sections. We’ve found gifts that are good for just guys or just girls or for both. Some of these gifts are better suited to be stocking stuffers. We’ve broken this guide into categories to better help you find the perfect teen gift. Good luck and happy shopping.
Gifts That Work for Teen Guys and Girls
If you want to stick to gift cards get them either an iTunes, Amazon, or a Visa gift card. These are all gift cards they will actually use. Avoid gift cards from stores that are harder to find or get to. Typically my kid spends there iTunes gift cards right then and there.
A 1 year, Spotify membership is sure to please any teen. They can listen to their music without commercial.
A gift card to StickFix would be fun. With the gift card they can use it to order a styling for themselves. A personal stylist selects items to fit his or her tastes and wardrobe needs based on a survey they fill out. I recommend getting a minimum of $135 – $250 on the gift card in order to cover the entire styling which includes five items.
Gift Ideas for Teen Boys

Teen Guy Stocking Stuffers
POLISHED Gift Set by Dr. Lancer
A POLISHED gift set created by Dr. Lancer and his friend, Ryan Seacrest makes a great teenage guy gift. POLISHED is a dermatologist-developed, tested and approved daily regimen that targets the specific needs of men’s skin and is powered by the highest grade and most innovative ingredients. The line includes an anti-aging serum, dual cleanse and shave, oil-free moisturizer (SPF 30) a daily micro scrub, and a daily lip care.
Gifts for Teen Girls
I think by the time a girl is a teenager, she is probably wearing jewelry every day. Basic button pearl earrings are also a good gift. This is something that can work when she dresses up or when she’s casual. Pearls go with everything.
Build Your Own Charm Necklace
Teen girls will love showing off their individuality with this necklace, perfect for everyday wear! Create an Isabelle Grace charm necklace just for her with your choice of either a 16 or 18 inch silver plated chain, the initial charm of your choice, their birthstone, and one whimsical charm.

Herstyler Luxe Infrared Flat Iron
Teen Girls are most likely wearing makeup. I do not recommend getting them heavy makeup, but I certainly recommend certain things. Here is a list of makeup I recommend for teen girls.
- One good eyeshadow palette: You do not need to buy an assortment of eyeshadows instead invest in a nice palette for her with a variety of colors. My three favorites are Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette, Too Faced Soft Eyes Shadow Collection, and Younique’s Customizable Palette.
- Mascara that won’t flake: Mascara is pretty basic and most teen girls wear it, but they are not all good. My daughter has allergies, so her go to mascara is Younique Moodstuck Epic Mascara.
