Teenage girl gift buying can be challenging at the best of times, not least in 2010 when the average teen is totally up to date with what’s in fashion. If you buy a gift based on what you think she will like, chances are you will get it wrong and the last thing a parent needs is a sulky teenager on Christmas day!

This article offers some cool and trendy fashion suggestions, together with some safer gift card ideas that can be spiced up with an added extra; all presented in a beautiful gift box.

Cool Gifts for Teens

The best cool gifts for teens are often fashion accessories as, even if they don’t love them to bits, they can always do an accessory swop with their friends. Beanie hats (see the main picture) are hot fashion items and they are also practical for keeping out the cold, as are berets. They do come in hundreds of different styles and often with glitzy embellishment like sequins or beads, so it’s worth checking with the teenager’s mum that she is into a bit of bling before buying a particular hat.

You can also add a scarf, which probably shouldn’t match as teen girls are into odd socks and nails painted with different colors, or you can throw in a pot of nail varnish if you think a beanie hat gift isn’t big enough.

Christmas Gifts for Teenage Girls

If you don’t want to touch clothing or accessory items for fear for having your gift rejected, how about a funky mouse mat to jazz up her social networking time? These are available in both fashion stores as accessory items or at online stores like Zazzle, which has some fantastic designs for both fashion and tom-boy teen girls alike.

Safe Teen Girl Gifts

Last minute shoppers or simply those looking for completely safe teen girl gifts will probably want to buy a gift card. As boring as this can be, don’t resort to a gift voucher for any old store. Make a quick phone call and find out where she likes to shop and either buy one for that store or, better still, for the whole mall, so she is not restricted to where she can spend her Christmas money.

Another idea is to buy a card to a cinema chain (make sure there is a cinema close to where the teen lives before you buy!) or a Netflix card so she can watch what she wants when she wants. An iTunes card is also sure to bring a smile as the teen can simply download the music of her choice without spending her own pocket money.

Any gift card can be made more special by packing it in a pretty gift box tied with raffia or colored ribbon, and adding a twist inside as an unexpected extra. If giving a simple cinema card, for instance, add a gift voucher for a ride in a luxury limo to the cinema so she can entertain her friends. Or add an extra voucher for a meal at the mall, so can she enjoy an all-day shopping trip.

Teen Christmas 2010 Gift Shopping

Give a gift a teen girl will love by choosing a hot fashion item or a safer gift card with an added extra for Christmas 2010. Gift shopping for a teen need not be stressful if you stick to these simple but sure-to-please ideas.
