Welcome to Metropolitan Mama’s Christmas Gift Guide for Teen Girls. Below you will find clothes, shoes, decor, games, and accessories that teen girls are bound to love for Christmas 2020.
As the mother of one tween girl and one teen girl, I can confidently say that a beautiful necklace is high on the wish list of most teen girls. The delicate and elegant sterling silver necklaces by James Avery are sophisticated and subtle - while offering designs that are simultaneously modern and classic.
Our top two picks for 2020 are the Love Script Necklace and the Faith and Love Necklace. Absolutely gorgeous pieces! She will immediately want to put on her new necklace and will wear it out and about - at home, to school, and for special occasions.
What do most teen girls want for Christmas? New clothes, of course! Find adorable, comfortable, and on-trend pieces at KUT from the Kloth.
Our faves this year are the hoodie and turtleneck sweater pictured above in a warm golden hue, which is perfect for autumn! Also: these super comfy black corduroys match with everything and will keep her warm all winter long.
A new board game is a great go-to gift for a teen because it allows for non-tech entertainment with friends!
If your girl likes fast-paced word games, you can't go wrong with electronic Catch Phrase. A word appears on the screen and your goal is to get your teammates to say the word...FAST! Pass it before the time is up!
Hasbro also just released a brand new (and super fun!) version of this classic game. The goal in ULTIMATE Catch Phrase is the same...EXCEPT that the unit is designed to literally be thrown across to the next player. Catch it and continue! It's like Catch Phrase and Frisbee in one fantastic game!
Scattergories, a game I loved as a teen (and still do as an adult!), is another entertaining game for people who enjoy working with words and thinking quickly on their feet. The 30th anniversary edition reproduces the classic game in its original form from 1989. This game is recommended for ages 12+ because it requires speedy reading/thinking as well as knowledge about geography, presidents, product names, etc.
If you love Scattergories and already own it, consider Scattergories Categories – a newer game for 2-4 players. Each round starts with a word or phrase. For example, the card might say “road trip” and then “names of cities.” You then have two minutes to list as many cities as you can that start with the letters in the words ROAD TRIP. You could write “Rockford” for R, “Oakland” for O, etc.
Get ready to belt out your favorite tunes! This exciting board game prompts you to sing in order to win - but it doesn't matter how on-pitch you are. All you have to do is sing a song with a designated word in it, which is harder than you think! Beat the clock in this incredible karaoke style board game.
A new spin on trivia! In EVERYBODY KNOWS, you will be tasked with answering 10 "simple" questions in 60 seconds. It's harder - and funnier - than you might think.
110%! That's the accuracy that we predict your teen daughter will love this super functional bag. It's tiny enough to not be cumbersome while being large enough to tote around all of her essentials. Because it can work as either a wristlet or a crossbody, it's ultra-versatile. Bonus: there's a built-in pocket and six card slots!
Know an aspiring artist? Browse the super fun sets by Tombow! Pictured above are the Dual Brush Pens in the Floral Palette, which comes with 19 colors and 1 colorless blending pen. The brush tips work like a paintbrush to create fine, medium, or bold strokes.
Room decor pieces are high on almost every teen girl's Christmas wish list! She's bound to love anything to add beauty to her space. The Adelina White Comforter Set by Laura Ashley (pictured above) offers sophisticated elegance that will brighten up any bedroom. It's simple enough to appeal to almost all teen girls and will add warmth to her nights.
What do teen girls want for Christmas? Say it a little louder for the people in the back: Clothes, clothes, and more clothes! US Polo Assn has a full collection of adorable preppy clothing options at affordable prices.
Novel journals, published by Canterbury Classics, are the perfect gift for literary teens. These super pretty softbound journals feature quotes from famous books and the journal lines are the novel itself (in teeny, tiny text!). Pictured above is our top pick for 2020. The Anne of Green Gables journal, poppy in a vibrant turquoise, features this fun quote on the cover: "It is...easier to be good if your clothes are fashionable."
They're a boot. They're a slipper. They're BOTH. She'll love these ultra-comfy and super-snuggly plaid slipper boots. Perfect for zoom school, real school, or errands around town!
Recommended by dermatologists, La Roche-Posay has a 3-step acne system that promises to "reduce acne in 3 days and continuously over time." The set includes a medicated gel cleanser, a clarifying solution, and a dual action acne treatment.
Say good-bye to old-fashioned curling wands! There’s a new curler in town. Conair’s Unbound Cordless Auto Curler offers an easy way to get perfect curls. Because of the innovative design, this auto curler makes it simple for teen girls to do their own hair for special occasions, theatrical productions, or everyday wear. Essentially, you choose your heat and curl direction, insert a 1-inch hair section into the curl chamber, push down a button, listen for a beep, and then release for a gorgeous, defined ringlet!
This is for all the curly hair girls! If your gift recipient has naturally curly or wavy hair, she'll love the chance to try the product line by DevaCurl. All of DevaCurl's products are free of sulfates, parabens, silicones, and gluten - which allows for healthy, hydrated curls.
P.S. You can also search for a stylist on the DevaCurl website. These certified stylists are specifically trained to cut curly hair to perfection!
Whether she's zooming for school or just lounging on the weekend, she'll be uber appreciative of a silky soft pair of pajamas. Separates are a great way to go for teen girls because they can mix-and-match with other tops and bottoms.
For holiday 2020, we're loving the adorable navy options from Soma Intimates.
