Gift Guide for Your Teenage Daughter

Raising a teenage daughter is a hard job, but shopping for them is sometimes harder. Their likes and dislikes fluctuate with their hormones. Yet, certain gifts are versatile enough to please even the harshest teenage critic.


For teenage girls starting to take care of their skin, it’s best to keep things simple. Focus on products that will cleanse, tone, moisturize, and treat blemishes. Cleansers unclog pores, while acne toners remove oil. It is not necessary to use acne toner all over the face. The most common areas of breakouts are in the T-zone. So use toner on the forehead, nose, and chin. Face moisturizers should not feel heavy, especially for acne-prone skin. Instead, use oil-free creams that hydrate. For treating blemishes, use products with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Salicylic acid removes dirt from pores, and benzoyl peroxide is an anti-inflammatory that stops bacteria from growing. For maximum effect, use skincare products from the same brand.


While subscription boxes have been around since the early 2000s, their popularity has increased in recent years. A select group of items is delivered to your home on a regular basis, usually monthly. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of options available that any teenager would love. Some of the obvious choices include make-up boxes, make-up accessories, and niche apparel, like leggings or socks. However, if your daughter is not a fan of cosmetics, there are plenty of other fun options. You can take their love of Harry Potter to another level with customized fandom gear. Prices begin as low as $10 a month.


Buy her a bundle of books that she can enjoy over and over again. Gift her best-selling novels like The Fault in Our Stars or The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. For more mature content, look into books that reflect the reality of today’s society, like The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. It is a controversial yet captivating novel that deals with the effects of racial and social injustices, and police brutality in America. Another fantastic option for your teenage daughter is Ask the Passengers by A.S. King. King addresses the confusion that sometimes arises when discovering your sexuality. If you’re undecided about what topics will resonate most with your daughter, speak to the bookstore’s employees. They can give you insight into what today’s kids’ concerns are and which literature best addresses it.


This handy device really has no age requirement. Anyone can benefit from using these speakers. However, teenagers tend to use their phones to listen to music while in the shower. A waterproof speaker helps ensure their phone won’t get wet. Make sure the speakers are not only water resistant but that they provide great sound as well. This further ensures the speakers get used.


Video games are not just for boys. The gaming chair is a staple among hardcore gamers, regardless of gender. They were originally designed to simulate the feel of driving when playing racing games, which is why they look like racer car seats. Today, they come with integrated speakers, subwoofers, and vibration motors to enhance the gaming experience. The best part is that it is not just for gaming. The chair has been ergonomically designed for whenever your child wants to spend hours on end on their computer or phone.

If you’re the proud parent of a teenage daughter, you probably know it can be difficult to keep up with her changing sense of taste and style. While every teen is different, the gifts on the list will likely prove to be winners.
