My niece is a very fashion forward teen. She is always sporting the latest trends, playing with new makeup looks, and showing off a variety of fashion styles. Naturally, I get my teen gift ideas largely from her! But what actually inspired me to write this post featuring cool, trendy gift ideas for teen girls was a visit to Yahoo Style. I was looking at an article on Taylor Swift’s 25 Best Looks and another on 21 Winter Boots when I thought of my niece and realized I still needed to decide what to get her. She is a huge shoe and boot fan so that is what made me think of her. This list is comprised of some of her requested picks and a few more of my best gift ideas for teen girls.

What Is The Best Gift For A Teenage Girl?
Most teens love trying out new makeup trends and looks. I know I enjoyed that even in kindergarten and I got sent the principal’s office for it too! There are all kinds of wonderful cosmetic and makeup kits out there but the Yahoo Style Gift Guide suggested the Sephora Collection Color Festival Blockbuster Palette and I have to say it looked like an amazing all inclusive kit.
2. Cute Hoodies
‘Tis the season to stay warm and hoodies are always in and you really can’t have to many. A nice warm sherpa fleece lined hoodie is a perfect gift for teen girls this holiday season.
3. Hair Accessories
Headbands and headwraps are in! They look great with hair when worn down and when up in ponytails too. Try it out!
Scarves are a great cold weather accessory to add style to any outfit. A fun pop of color and a way to stay warm all at the same time, can’t beat that! Whether you go hand knit or woven, a great scarf can complete the outfit. Infinity scarves are in too!
5. Hair Styling Products
My niece couldn’t live without her flat iron but sometimes she likes to go for the curly effect too. From flat irons to curlers and from anti-frizz gel to hair foam, hair styling products are always in!
6. Metallic Accessories
Metallic accessories are in. From bags and shoes to clutches and belts- metallic is fun! Again there are all kinds of choices but a few good suggestions I like from Yahoo Style were the metallic leather bags shown above and in shoes, the Vans Camden Glitter Leather Rose.
7. Fancy Cell Phone
You know they can’t live without the latest cell phone. I mean really- how else would they take all those selfies!? LOL. The latest iphone or Sony Xperia are sure to score big with your teen girl. If they have the phone already consider a protective cover that adds bling value like the one suggested by Yahoo Style in the above photo! Out of all my gift ideas for teen girls, this one is sure to be a hit with every single teen girl out there.
On that note, my niece assures me a tablet will come in handy and help her do well in college! And really, they are loads of fun with all kinds of educational value at their fingertips.
Well, there you have it. Eight teenager gift ideas are perfect for those hard to please teens! Which teen gift ideas were your favorites?
