It can be perplexing to try and find a gift for a teenage girl. It’s hard to know exactly which clothing she’ll like (and once you pick out a shirt for her, she may hate it just because you thought it was nice). Music tastes change on a daily basis, and you probably have no idea what’s cool and what’s not. Let this list help. Here are some of the hottest trends for teenage girls. She will be impressed that you know what’s in, and will enjoy receiving a gift she actually wants.
For the Vampire Romantic
Victoria Frances Favole Vampire Paper Envelope Sticker Stationary Set
by Victoria Frances
Everyone knows that vampires are sexy and romantic, and teen girls are big fans. If you’re going to make her write thank-you notes for her Christmas gifts, at least give her some cool stationary for the task. This set features eight sheets of writing paper in tan, lavender, pink and green, each accented with a Victorian vampire in the bottom left-hand corner. Six envelopes have matching vampires in the corner, as well. A sticker sheet allows her to accent her pages with even more vampire-themed accoutrements. Get her more than one set so that she can write lots of thank-you notes, and still have some left over for passing notes in math class.
For the Glam Girl
Farouk CHI 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Hairstyling Iron
Teenage girls spend a lot of time obsessing about their appearances. They want to be in on the latest fashion trends for clothing, makeup and hair. Smooth, straight hair has been the trend for quite awhile now, and the look is sticking around. Help her achieve the popular styles with the Farouk CHI 1 inch Ceramic Flat Hairstyling Iron. This mid-priced hairstyling tool is built to last and can even take an occasion drop onto the bathroom floor. There’s a big difference between cheap flat irons and ones of quality. With the CHI, the teen in your life will be able to straighten her hair without being a professional. The iron is heavy enough to fully straighten each strand so that it won’t go frizzy again by lunchtime. For an added bonus, pick up a bottle of CHI Straight Guard Smoothing Styling Cream. This is similar to a curling iron and gets really hot. Keep it away from small children and be sure to turn it off after use.
