5 Birthday Gift Ideas for Teen Girls
It’s that time of year again! Your teen girl’s birthday is just around the corner, but wait! You haven’t bought her anything yet, and there are less than 48 hours left before B-Day.
What do you do?
If you’re scrambling to find the perfect gift, or you’re looking for some great ideas for later on, here are five birthday gifts for teen girls that are sure to please.
From Bluetooth headphones to a gift box for earrings to books and beyond, we’ve included some of the best ideas on the market.
1. Bluetooth Headphones
Apple’s Airpods have exploded into the headphone market. Creating a new line of Bluetooth in-ear headphones that offer phenomenal sound in a tiny package.
Plenty of other brands have stepped up to the plate to take advantage of the emerging market.
You’ll have other options if you don’t want to drop the almost $150 these name-brand headphones cost in most retail outlets.
Bluetooth headphones come in all shapes and sizes, from in-ear headphones to over-ear headphones and more.
Bluetooth allows a wireless connection from any device with Bluetooth capability to the headphones.
No more tangled wires, severed wires, or those pesky tears that cause the sound to come from only one headphone.
With a pair of Bluetooth headphones, your teen can enjoy her music on the go without any wires getting in the way.
This gift varies greatly in price; anywhere from about $35 to over $500 depending on the brand and model. Here are some Bluetooth options to choose from.
2. Earring Subscription Box
Teenage girls are all about expressing their personal fashion sense, and what better way to do so than with an earring subscription box that delivers high-quality earrings right to your door?
Hypoallergenic earrings have never been so easy to find or so stylish! With an earring gift box, you’ll get high-quality earrings every one, three, or six months.
There are plenty of styles and metals to choose from, so you won’t have to worry about not being able to find the perfect set for your teen.
You can even include her in the selection process. Giving her total control over what she gets and how she wears it.
This is a gift that keeps giving year-round and is a great way to start growing a collection of beautiful earrings.
3. Apple iPhone 11
The iPhone seems to only get better and better as the years go on. With more features, a better camera, and, of course, a bigger price tag.
While this year’s model comes in at around $1500+ without a plan, it’s still an item of envy for teens and adults alike.
The iPhone 11 Pro sold almost 40 million units this year, and it’s sure to be atop your teen’s wish list for her birthday.
If you’re looking to purchase an iPhone 11, you can do so on Apple.com (the phone comes unlocked), or you can finance one through your carrier’s existing phone plans.
Either way, this phone is nothing short of a small investment, so be sure to take due precautions as well.
A protective case is a good option, as well as insurance. Let’s face it; teens lack the caution of adults and don’t quite understand the damage that a broken phone can inflict on the monthly budget.
While this gift certainly won’t save you any money, there’s no doubt that your teen will love her new iPhone!
4. Personalized Journal
Teen girls often find themselves writing their innermost feelings in a journal. With so much pressure from societal expectations, parents, school, and more, it can be difficult to express certain feelings except in the most private of environments.
Queue the personalized journal, an excellent and subtle gift for the writer or journaler in your life.
A personalized journal takes a simple writing journal and makes it more personal to your teen.
It makes for a great gift that says “I understand you.”
Feeling understood is incredibly valuable to a teenager, as it is to just about anyone!
You can choose an engraved journal with your own message, or a pre-made version you can personalize with your teen’s name.
5. Book of the Month Subscription
The Book of the Month Club is a subscription box that’s perfect for teenage girls that love to read.
Each month, a new book will be delivered right to your door for around $14.99 per month.
You don’t have to order just one book, either. If your teen is an avid reader, you can choose more than one book to have mailed to your doorstep!
The best part about BOTMC is that each book has already been vetted by other readers, so your teen is getting a book she’ll definitely be interested in reading.
