A reusable water bottle or tumbler makes a great gift for any teenage girl if she doesn’t already have one. If your teen is hoping for the high-end name-brand version, you can splurge on a Stanley for around $40 or less depending on the size you need.

If you’re looking for the best bargain on 40-oz. tumblers we’ve ever seen, stop by your local Five Below. We’ve found them there for under $6! For another high-quality yet affordable option, we also recommend Walmart’s Ozark Trail brand. I spotted a white and pink ombre one on sale for under $15.

15. A memorable experience is one of the best gifts for teenage girls.

Experiences – priceless 😉

Many teenage girls can appreciate the joy of receiving an experience over material things. There are endless options when gifting an experience, depending on your teen’s interests, hobbies, and personality. Best of all, you can customize your gift to suit any budget!

Consider a salon or spa visit, an escape room, indoor rock climbing, a baking or arts & crafts MasterClass, private lessons related to their sport or hobby, bowling passes, amusement park admission, tickets to a sporting event, concert tickets, or even a visit to a special destination.

Search your local Groupon for more ideas!

    My gosh! This list is so spot on. It feels like I walked into my 15-year-old niece’s room. I did go ahead and pick up a couple of those makeup travel bags – thank you!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww, YAY! You’re welcome! 💕 Very happy to hear this list has so many items that your niece enjoys, Andrea! 🙌🥰 Glad you could scoop up the travel bags!

  2. H Reese

    These are spot on! My 13 year old Grand daughter has most of these and Loves them all! Remote LED lights, Stanley water bottle, mini fridge, travel Bluetooth, she loves getting pedicures and manicures so that’s always a great idea. She loves and has 4 Kendra Scott necklaces. She just had a birthday and wanted a Record Player and (of course) Taylor Swift Albums. She got all but 1 of TS albums. I was very impressed with the sound of the record player..I grew up having one and it was always scratchy sounding. My daughter says it wasn’t too expensive from Amazon. I’m not sure how much it cost but, all I know is spent $70 on a Taylor Swift Album for her.. lol! She was very Happy..🩷 I love the Escape Room idea! And Win Win I’ll get for her 15 year old Brother too! It will also give me precious time to spend with them!

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      So happy to hear that your Granddaughter has and loves most of these! Thanks for sharing about the record player and albums too! Those seem to be pretty popular right now! My 16 year old has one also and she loves it! So glad you like the Escape Room idea and such a great way to make memories with both your grandchildren! ❤️🥰

  3. Heather

    My girl is 14. Nice list.

    I will say I wouldn’t recommend the gel polish kit.. we got the same one last year and it’s horrible. Polish peeled off within 12 hours.

    The meet me as midnight slippers are from TEMU. I got them for $6 there.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing the feedback on the polish set, Heather. Bummer to hear it didn’t work out! Good to know there are other options to choose from for the slippers too. 🥰

    • mimi-coolchick

      Almost everything on Amazon is from TEMU.

  4. Sarah

    I had to post, because I came here fully expecting none of this to fit my 14 year old, but this is a truly well rounded list with great ideas. My daughter is obsessed with the LEGO Botanicals and you gave me ideas for things that will work that I didn’t think of. Well done!!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      YAY! Very happy to hear this list was helpful for gift inspiration, Sarah! 🙌💕
