Inexpensive Gifts for a Teenage Girl
1. Phone Case
This beautiful phone case has great reviews on Amazon. It is fashionable enough for a younger or older teen. It offers full body protection, and also has raised edges to prevent screen and camera getting scratched even face down. The case has precise cutouts that make the buttons easy to click and you can charge the phone without removing the case.
Popsockets are awesome little inventions. My daughter loves hers. She says it makes her phone feel a lot more secure in her hands and she can hold her phone with only one hand instead of two. Popsockets offer a secure grip so you can text with one hand, snap better photos, and watch videos hands-free.
Here is a super cute way for a teenage girl to decorate her room! This photo hanging clips string can be used to hang anything lightweight like photos or artwork. The lights can be set to many different modes including chasing/flash, slow fade, twinkle/flash, and steady on.
This book might look boring, but it is anything but. Both of my daughters have thoroughly enjoyed this book. They are still working on it, and have been enjoying it for years! If the teen in your life is anything like my daughters, they will enjoy it all of their teenage years. It is a way to create without pressure-it is almost like a therapy session! Both of my girls had so much fun doing the prompts-they did things like collecting fruit stickers, covered a page with good thoughts, and traced their hands. There are also pages that say things like “infuse this page with a smell of your choosing”. My daughters used the black and white version, but there is now a color version available.
Your teen will love this super soft blanket for snuggling and watching TV together or just for relaxing. This faux fur blanket is warm and really soft.
These slippers have memory foam cushioned insoles and sneaker soles. You can wear them inside or out. They are fully lined in micro fleece to keep your feet super warm. I showed them to my teen daughter and she wanted them! I want these on my wish list as well!
These claw clips have great reviews-especially for girls that have thick hair. Large claw clips are in right now.
I bought one of these for my daughter. She loves all things journaling, and this is more than just a notebook. It has dotted grids, handwritten fonts, and doodle tutorials. Perforated pages make it easy to remove pages and display them. She is going to love this!
Hand lettering is all the rage right now. My daughter would have loved this book too as it goes perfectly with bullet journaling. It teaches five major hand-lettering styles, and it has practice pages so that you have space to master each style.
It also teaches how to mix different styles of handlettering, and how to combine text and illustration. The tutorials are said to be easy to follow-and the Amazon reviews seem to concur!
There are also project ideas and the book has full color illustrations and photos throughout.
10. Brush Pens
My teenage daughter loves these brush pens! They can be used for fine art, brush lettering, faux calligraphy, illustrations, water color illustrations, journaling and more! These pens have a fine tip on one side and a brush tip on the other side. The brush tip makes medium or bold strokes depending on how much pressure is applies. There is a blender pen included which softens and blends colors creating a watercolor effect.
11. Lap Desk
This lap desk is adjustable to 8 different angles. It has a space saving design and folds flat. The dual bolster pillows conform to your lap making the lab desk comfortable and stable. It can be used with laptops, iPad, and tablets, or it can be used for writing or drawing. My daughter is getting one of these! Shhhh……

This mirror is perfect for applying makeup or mascara. It has 1X and 3X magnification, and it rotates 360 degrees. It has a basic classic design, so it would match different decors.
I own this makeup storage case and really like it. It makes my makeup take up much less space. I am sure teen girls would love this stylish and modern storage case. It organizes makeup and brushes and keeps them beautifully displayed.
The bag has magic reversible sequins and an internal zipper pocket to store keys, money and other small items. The cord on this bag is a thick one which makes it more durable. The length of the cord can be adjusted to fit different ages.

I bought this flat iron for myself and it has worked great. This makes my hair straight and makes the texture look pretty. (I don’t use it all the time because I don’t want to use heat too often). This flat iron is inexpensive, but works as well as expensive flat irons!
