Welcome to Metropolitan Mama's BIG LIST of the best stocking stuffers for teen girls (ages 13-19). I've tried to include a variety of ideas - accessories, beauty products, games, decor, gear, candy, snacks, craft supplies, books, and practical things that will actually be used throughout the year. I will update this page yearly with new and unique ideas.
Stickers aren't just for kids! My teen absolutely loves artistic and whimsical stickers - especially with a travel theme! She uses them in letters to friends and for art/school-related projects. If your teen has her own planner, she'll probably love the Life Organized collection by Paper House too.
If you haven't introduced your teen girl to period underwear, Christmas is an excellent time to do it. They bring so much peace of mind for teens when they are at school, playing sports, and with friends. No need to carry around a bulky bag or change pads! Click over to the website to read about how they work. The Sport cut is a great starter pair for teens.
Almost all teen girls could use a small bag to stow cash, a phone, lip gloss, and...go! The Harper Crossbody by K-Carroll Accessories fits this description. At $19.99, it's affordable and adorable. 50 colors/designs to choose from!
SmartyPits offers three different varieties - Super Strength (which is "super charged with baking soda"), Sensitive Skin ("the smart choice if you have baking soda sensitivities"), and Teen. Most importantly, their deodorant is aluminum-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and talc-free. SmartyPits also sells a Pit Rebalancing Treatment, which is specifically formulated for people who are switching from a conventional deodorant or who are looking to detox their armpits.
Burt's Bees is a wonderful beauty brand for all ages, but it is an especially strong pick for teens who are just beginning to experiment with make-up. Burt's Bees offers natural-looking products like tinted moisturizers, lip shimmers, and liquid lipsticks in lots of neutral, light, and bright shades. All of Burt's Bees products are free of parabens, phthalates, SLS, petrolatum, talc, synthetic fragrances, and silicones.
An exquisitely designed writing journal is a great gift for any age. Journals can be used for note taking, goal setting, doodling, and story crafting. This desert-inspired design caught our eye due to the eye-catching prickly pear cactus against a beautiful blush background.
Sunglasses are important to wear for eye protection - especially in heavily sunny climates like where we live in Arizona. The trouble is that it's super easy to misplace sunglasses when you're on the go - school, work, church, sports practices, theatre rehearsals, etc. Enter - Knockaround Sunglasses. These are affordable, stylish sunglasses that are dependable (and easy to replace, if need be). Pictured: Silver/Rose Mile Highs and Matte Black/Smoke Seventy Nines.
Westcott's 8" Vintage Copper Finish Scissors have a chic vintage look, while also offering durability and sharp, stainless steel blades. Ideal for crafting for school or fun.
If you know a teen girl who wears glasses, she's bound to instantly fall in love with this elegant black pen pouch with gold embossing. Perfect gift pick for writers also!
I LOOOVVVEEE Book Darts - and so will your reader friends! These miniature metal darts serve as bookmarks and line keepers. No need to get up as you read if you come across a fantastic quote! Simply add a dart and you'll be able to easily come back to your exact line in the future! We're putting these in the teen category because book darts are absolutely genius for students who typically need to reference specific sections of a text for reports and essays.
Faber-Castell's Polychromos Hard Pastel Artists' Crayon set comes with 12 brilliant colors and is perfectly sized to fit in a stocking. Each crayon contains the highest quality pigments for unsurpassed lightfastness, which is rated on each crayon. Explore new and different surface textures that soft pastels cannot stand up to. Ideal for teen artists!
Curly-haired girls will be super grateful for this innovative spray that will allow them to achieve defined ringlets - even on mornings when they sleep past the alarm and miss taking a shower! All she will have to do is spritz some of this spray into her dry hair and then scrunch to reshape her curls! Such a timesaver for busy teens.
Designed to fit all phones, AquaVault's patented case will allow your teen to enjoy water activities (swimming, kayaking, water parks, etc) without ruining her phone. The floating airbag design keeps the phone from sinking while simultaneously keeping water from getting into the device. Best of all, she will still retain full functionality of her phone through the case. In other words, she can talk on the phone, text her friends, and take photos or videos without being worried about causing damage to her phone. A practical and brilliant stocking stuffer for anyone who uses a phone for athletic or outdoor adventures!
