20 Top Christmas Gifts for Teenage Girls to Wear
By Janine Clements, 21st Century Mama
Shopping for Christmas gifts for a teenage girl can be a minefield. Clothes and fashion accessories are great options, but they can be a big no-no unless you get it right. With this in mind, I enlisted my fashion-conscious teen to give me the insider scoop on Christmas gifts for teenage girls including things that they will actually want to wear, from wardrobe staples such as sweatpants and sneakers to jewelry. Whether their style is vintage, hipster, glam, or they prefer a relaxed, beachy vibe, you’ll find plenty of options for Christmas gifts for teenage girls on this list.
Sweatpants or joggers make the perfect Christmas gift for a teenage girl in 2020. They have been seen on everyone from Bella Hadid to J-Lo and are a wardrobe staple for any fashion-conscious teen. They can be both comfortable and stylish, and are ideal for the cold winter months, although my teen wears them all year round. Popular colors include grey, black, and tie-dye.
2. Hoodie or Sweatshirt
A top Christmas gift for a teenage girl is a hoodie or sweatshirt. This fashion basic can be worn to school over leggings or jeans or over sweatpants for lounging around at home. Go for oversized or cropped designs with bold colors and graphics. College logos are also a big trend.
3. White Sneakers
If you want your Christmas gift for a teenage girl to be a hit, get them some white sneakers. This versatile footwear is stylish, comfortable, and looks great with everything from jeans to dresses.
4. Slip-on Sneakers
It can be hard to think of things to get a teenage girl for Christmas, but you can’t go wrong with some slip-on sneakers. These offer the perfect combination of comfort and style that teens love. Teen-approved designs include plain, checkerboard, metallic, and tie-dye.
5. Oversized Tee
When it comes to finding the right Christmas gift for a teenage girl, oversized tees are a great choice. Popular t-shirt designs include bold colors and graphics. Names of destinations printed on the front are also popular.
The athleisure trend has no signs of going anywhere, which means a pair of leggings will be the ideal Christmas gift for a teenage girl. They’re comfy, stylish, and can be worn to school, out for lunch, or to the gym. While classic black leggings are a teen favorite, they also love other colors and subtle patterns.
A cute pair of shades is the perfect Christmas gift for a teenage girl. They can add a finishing touch to any outfit all year round, and it’s something they can have fun with. Look for vintage styles with transparent lenses, oversized frames, classic Wayfarers, or ever-popular aviators.
8. Crop Tops
Crop tops are a cool Christmas gift for a teenage girl. Teens love knitted long-sleeved crop tops, boxy tees, and tube tops. They go with everything from leggings to high-waisted jeans and can be worn under a sweater, zip-up hoodie, or coat.
9. Cozy sweater
If you’re trying to think of a Christmas gift for a teenage girl, a cute and cozy sweater is ideal. A sweater works equally as well for lounging around as hanging out with a few friends. They look as good with jeans and sneakers as with leggings and a cute pair of boots. Crew necks are big for winter 2020.
10. Fuzzy socks
If you need inspiration for a Christmas gift for a teenage girl, fluffy socks are excellent stocking fillers. There are so many different options on the market and you can go as bold or as bright as you like.
11. Touchscreen Gloves
You’ll get maximum brownie points if you buy a pair of touchscreen gloves as a Christmas gift for a teenage girl. They’ll still be able to Snapchat their friends or shoot TikTok videos even when they’re in the snow.
12. Sherpa jacket
For a winning Christmas gift for a teenage girl, opt for a cute Sherpa jacket. While teens might be reluctant to dress appropriately outdoors when the temperature drops, they’ll love looking cool while keeping warm with one of these. Cropped or oversized as popular looks.
13. Gold pendant necklace
A simple gold pendant necklace are the perfect things to get a teenage girl for Christmas. Initials, stars, and lightning bolts are all super popular designs this year.
14. Scrunchy set
Scrunchies made a comeback in 2019 thanks to VSCO girls. While VSCO might be so last year, scrunchies are still one of the top hair accessory trends of 2020, and they are an easy option for a Christmas gift for a teenage girl.
For teens who love looking stylish when they step outside, a beanie is the ideal Christmas gift. There are so many super cute beanies around, but you can’t go far wrong with neon colors or slouchy styles.
16. Small Bag
A stylish but practical cross-body bag or backpack purse makes the best Christmas gift for a teenage girl as they can use it for phones, money, keys, and makeup. Smaller designs are better as anything too bulky is not cool.
17. Face Mask
If you’re struggling with Christmas gift list ideas for a stylish teenage girl, get them a face mask or three. These have become essential fashion items for 2020. There are plenty of designs by sports brands and fashion labels that they won’t be able to resist. The best ones are made from breathable fabric.
18. Sports Bra
Whether they want to wear a sports bra for playing sports, working out, or just because, they are the ideal Christmas gift for a teenage girl. They come in all sorts of fun styles and colors.
19. Denim Jeans
If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for a fashion-conscious teenage girl, a new pair of jeans will go down a treat. Teen-approved styles for 2020 include boyfriend, skinny, distressed, light wash, and high rise. We recommend you find out what they’re into first before buying.
Stylish teens are loving gold or silver earrings with gems, stars, lightning bolts, or butterflies either as studs or on hoops. If you get any of these designs as a Christmas gift for a teen, they’ll be your biggest fan.
