Sometimes teens need someone to remind them that they can handle what’s going on - even if that voice of reassurance comes from within. “I Totally Got This” is an easy-to-use journal that helps your teen tackle goals of any size, whether she wants to ace an algebra test or work up the courage to ask her crush for his digits.

Multiple ports let your teen and her BFF charge their smartphones at the same time. Long-lasting power bank charges some electronic devices 2 to 4 times without running out of juice.
Some reviewers are annoyed by the power bank’s port sizes, stating that it’s easy to accidentally insert the wrong end of a cord.
When she forgets to check in, she can’t use the excuse that her phone died. This reliable power bank lets her charge digital devices on the go, and she can even charge two devices at once. It’s lightweight and compact, so she can easily slip it into a purse or back pocket.
Available in multiple hues, including pink, blue, and grey. Practical LED indicators let her know when it’s time to refuel this convenient power supply, and built-in safety features help prevent overheating and overcharging.

May fall out of ears during sports and easy to lose.
These headphones are tiny: less than 1 inch long and ½ inch wide. They’re designed to be super easily concealed beneath your hair, hat, or hoodie, so you can listen to music on the sly. Despite their small size, they deliver excellent noise isolation and surprisingly good sound quality. If you want to avoid heavy headphones or anything with wires that could get tangled, these are a great choice.
Audio quality on these headphones is excellent, with rich, dynamic sound—suitable for audiobooks, movies, TV shows, and music. The volume is loud enough that you can hear everything clearly, and the design helps to isolate noise to ensure solid sound clarity.
Battery life on these headphones is surprisingly good—up to 6 hours of audio playtime, which is as much as twice what you get from other competing products. Charging the headphones (via USB-powered magnetic inductive charger) takes just half an hour. The range claims to be just 33 feet, but you can get up to 60 feet before the connection starts to waver.
These headphones are designed to connect to two mobile devices at once, allowing you to answer calls while enjoying your music or TV shows. They’re suitable for hands-free driving, though the operation (using the buttons on the headphones) can be a tad tricky to learn.
At $26, these headphones are a steal! They’re cheaper than competing products, have a longer lifespan, and comparable audio quality and noise isolation. Definitely a good choice if you want something lightweight and compact!
Slim, lightweight bag won’t weigh down your teen as she shops or socializes. Removable pouch lets her customize interior storage space.
Might be too small for teens with a lot of stuff.
Crossbody bags are trending with teens, and Coach has been a trusted brand since 1941. This Coach bag comes in multiple color combos, including black and pink, khaki and ruby, and pink and khaki.

Includes more than 140 phrases she can recite with friends, plus enough mouthpieces for up to 10 people to join the game. This fun game is a bestseller on Amazon, and the Australian Toy Association voted it the 2017 Toy of the Year.
Some folks say the mouthpieces are uncomfortable. Luckily, you can buy flexible mouthpieces and use those instead of the ones that come with the game.
She’ll laugh til she cries as she attempts to read silly phrases like “warm beef meatballs” with an oversized piece of plastic in her mouth. This is an awesomely hilarious game to keep on hand for sleepovers, holidays, and family game nights.
Watch Ya' Mouth comes with 143 phrases, 10 plastic mouthpieces, and an hourglass timer. Additional cards are sold separately, or she can make up her own fun phrases with friends.
Plants ship directly from a greenhouse, not a warehouse or retail store. Long-lasting plants help purify the air in your teen’s room.

The kit includes a glue stick and scissors, but she may want to replace those with her own supplies. Aside from that, this scrapbooking kit contains everything she needs - including a 48-page hardcover book - to organize memorable moments.
It’s fun to create this book alone, but this is also a great activity for friends to do during a slumber party or on a rainy Saturday afternoon.
Superior bass quality, excellent noise cancellation, beautifully affordable, built-in mic and music controls, and extremely comfortable.
Average overall sound and not the most comfortable or secure.
These headphones are designed like any other pair of earbuds or in ear headphones. They have a 12 mm driver for powerful bass and you can control your playback from your smartphone through the inline control. The silicone tip is meant to create suction to hold them in place, which of course means that they fall out if you move around or sweat too much. They're not the most comfortable, especially if you're doing exercise. Wear them too long, and they can irritate your ears (normal with earbuds). However, they're perfect for sedentary indoor activities like gaming, movie watching, and listening to music.
When it comes to bass, nothing beats these bad boys! With high-efficiency 9mm drivers built into ear earbud, you get booming bass no matter what you're listening to. And yet, the bass doesn't drown out the mids and highs. While the overall sound quality is average, the bass on these earbuds is superior to even the higher-priced brands (Beats, SkullCandy, etc.).
They're water- and sweat-proof, so you can use them for exercise or outdoor activities. They're about as durable as any other $30 pair of earbuds. Noise cancellation on these headphones is also average. You can use the larger silicone tip to block out all ambient noise, or use the small ones to let in background sounds if you're out and about.
The headphones come with a multi-button control, allowing you to play, pause, rewind, and skip your music. No volume control, though. The built-in microphone makes it easy to take and receive calls, though it's not too sensitive.
For the price (under $30), these headphones are an excellent choice for gamers, DJs, or anyone who listens to bass-heavy music and sounds.
Compact device fits comfortably in your teen’s hands. Perfect for on-the-go gaming, like on family vacations or road trips with friends.
As of now, there aren’t many games to choose from for this system.
The Nintendo Switch is a gaming device you can actually order online instead of battling long lines at midnight! It’s a great gaming system for teens because they can play alone or with friends. It’s portable, and they can play many of the games without a Wi-Fi connection.
If she prefers to play on a TV screen rather than the handheld console, all she has to do is connect her device and use the included controllers. A long battery life helps prevent power-related malfunctions from ruining her high scores.
Multiple designs available to enhance her personal style. Keeps feet warm and cozy on chilly days.
Not ideal for teens with larger feet; geared toward sizes 6 to 9 in women’s shoes.
Socks and sandals aren’t considered style snafus anymore, so she can rock her favorite footwear year-round with these fuzzy socks. They’re thick, soft, and comfortable, making them perfect for everything from algebra class to gossip fests by a blazing fire.
Practical non-skid soles prevent unwanted games of slip-and-slide across the floor, and a cozy blend of polyester and spandex provides ample stretch. Each set contains 12 patterned pairs, so you don’t have to worry about finding a pair that matches her favorite outfits.
This Bluetooth speaker is lightweight and super portable. 360-degree sound emanates from a choice of six gorgeous colors and works with both Apple and Android devices.
Some users report an issue with this speaker keeping a charge. Check it early.
It’s definitely not the cheapest portable speaker out there, but it is one of the best looking. At least, teenage girls tend to think so. It’s waterproof (to some extent), so she can play it in the shower. And, it has a 65 foot Bluetooth wireless range. The nine-hour battery life is not bad either. Best of all, you can pair it with other Ultimate Ears speakers to double up your sound.
If you are considering this speaker, you may want to also take a look at a carrying case to go with it. But, if a cheaper model meets your budget better, perhaps you’ll want to take a look at this speaker. It’s not as pretty, but it’s less than $30.
Lots of different organizer designs are available and the removable black mesh insert keeps jewelry in place (and protected from scratches).
Check the dimensions; some buyers report it arriving much smaller than imagined.
Any girl that has too much makeup and not nearly enough time in the day is going to appreciate this gift. It’s the sort of thing that’s needed and showcases all the goodness they enjoy so much.
Fortunately, it’s also a terrific price, so you can top up with all the other makeup goodies your teenage girl loves. Might we suggest this makeup mirror? It’s definitely a plus for shared bathrooms. And then, there’s this professional-level organizer to tote makeup off to the dorms (or to just keep everything in its proper place at home).
This 1-1½” pearl ceramic has an interesting cone barrel and reaches target heats quickly. It’s a lifesaver for those with long, straight, hard-to-hold-a-curl hair.
It doesn’t work well with thick or coarse hair.
This curling wand heats up to 410 degrees and it does so rather quickly. It can be ready to use in a mere 30 seconds. And, it shuts off automatically after 60 minutes. That’s wonderfully helpful for those moments when life gets in the way. But, the real beauty of this styling tool is the cone-shaped design and the pearl ceramic construction.
All in, this 1-1½” wand is a real winner. But, if your teen girl is hooked on straightening her hair, you may want to try this tool. And, you can always throw a few extra styling bits into her stocking for good measure; they’re unlikely to go unused.
Studio-quality sound, affordable price tag, compatible with any audio device, LOUD for its size, lightweight and beautifully portable, versatile sound profiles, connectivity is a breeze, waterproof, and features a decent range of sound.
The mid- and bass-range notes are a bit underwhelming.
Performance: Reading over all the Bluetooth speaker reviews, we've concluded one thing about this bad boy: you won't get better quality sound at this price and size! JBL is known for its sound quality, and it delivers with this speaker. You get excellent lows, highs, and mids, with AMAZING volume for such a small speaker. The bass got an upgrade from the previous model, but it's still lacking any real punch.
Connecting your Bluetooth devices to this speaker is easy, and it takes the work of but a moment. You can also plug any non-Bluetooth devices in via the AUX cord. The latest update to the Flip upgrades the battery life to 12 hours. It's a sleek-looking, well-constructed speaker that's easy to control for maximum audio performance.
Features: For those who listen to a wide range of music, this is the speaker for you. Thanks to the pre-established sound profiles (Acoustic, Rock, Punk, etc.), you can easily switch between music styles for the best listening experience.
Connection range is about 30 feet, but you'll find the one-touch pairing makes it easy to connect any Bluetooth device in a few seconds. It even has a built-in speakerphone so you can make and take calls without disconnecting your phone. Best of all, the new model has waterproofing added so you can use it ocean, pool, or lakeside.
Price: At $90, this is a very well-priced Bluetooth speaker. Considering the top-notch sound quality and easy pairing, you'll find it's a smart investment for those who want a speaker that will last for years to come.
This kit includes everything you need to transform ordinary objects into touchpads, make your own game controllers, and more. More fun than you can even imagine.
A few people feel it’s too expensive for what you get.
You can do some pretty amazing things with Makey Makey. Create your own game controllers or a banana keyboard; with this invention kit, you can turn anything in your home into a gadget – even an old orange. Not only is it a lot of fun, as these videos demonstrate, it’s a great chance to expand your brain.
If you’re going in for this Makey Makey kit, you may want to pick up a few extra wires to increase the possibilities of play. And, if it’s really not the sort of thing that your teen is into, then perhaps this elementary 3D printer could change the way she thinks about art and science.
Cooling material, stretchy, super comfortable, good breathability even in the heat, luxuriously soft, pockets included, no itchy tags, will maintain their shape even with regular use/washing, and features a comfortable elastic waistband.
May smell funky right out of the package (smell dissipates with use/washing).
These lounge pants are made with a blend of three fabrics: 45% micro-modal, 45% polyester, and 10% spandex. This blend makes them super lightweight, wonderfully stretchy, and resistant to pilling, sweat stains, and food stains.
They won’t wear out, fade, or stretch with regular use or washing, and they’ll last you for many years to come.
The style is about what you’d expect from lounge pants: a soft elastic waistband and a straight cut that hugs your legs but has plenty of elasticity to keep you comfortable as you sit and move.
The lounge pants come with two built-in side pockets (not very large, sadly) to store keys, your smartphone, or other small items. Best of all, there’s no itchy tag, and you can be comfortable wearing these all day long thanks to the tagless design.
The stay-put waistband will ensure that the pants stay firmly in place, but they won’t leave red marks. There’s no risk of rolling up or pulling down, and you’ll love how the fabric is light, airy, and beautifully cool even on the hottest day.
The pants only come in black, but they’ll hold their color well over years of use.
At $52, these are definitely some of the priciest lounge pants on the list, but excellent for those who want maximum comfort and a lightweight fabric.
Hands-free streaming, compatible with Alexa, control your media and content from anywhere in the room, built-in speaker with superb audio clarity, 4K Ultra HD quality, 60FPS, and easily surf the internet.
Not all smart TV apps are voice-compatible and you’ll still need the remote handy for voice capabilities.
Details: If your teenager loves the total control offered by Alexa, he’ll dig this Fire TV Cube. It’s essentially an Alexa box designed specifically for your TV, allowing him to change the channel, raise the volume, and control the TV all with just his voice. Add to that 500,000 movies and TV shows from all his favorite channels—including Netflix, Hulu, HBO, NBC, and more—and you’ve got a winner on your hands.
The Fire TV Cube delivers 4K Ultra HD resolution and Atmos Dolby digital sound as good as any surround sound speaker system. The voice control (through Alexa) is highly sensitive and will pick up his voice from anywhere in the room. The far-field voice recognition, beamforming technology, and eight built-in microphones ensure that no matter what commands he gives, the TV will pick them up and respond accordingly. It’s also compatible with all your smart home devices—thermostat, lights, etc.—so he’ll be able to control everything in one box.
Price: At $120 for this smart home gadget, he’s getting an amazing device that will do everything he wants and more!
The new Fire HD 8 has 12 hours battery life, double storage and a lot more RAM for faster speeds.
The sound is, perhaps, not as good as previous generations.
It’s difficult to get by without a tablet or small laptop these days. They’re just so necessary for personal viewing, listening, researching, note taking, and communicating. You know it and so does your teen girl. There are a range of tablets available, but this is certainly one of the best – especially given the price. The battery life on this model is simply incredible, and the connection to all things Amazon means this works wonderfully well as an eReader as well as a media player. It’s also convenient for taking to class.
Take a quick look at all the features and you’ll be sold. While you’re at it, why not pick up this case with keyboard to inspire serious study? This SD card will also add plenty of space to store movies, music, books, and everything else your teen girl needs to store.
Works with gaming consoles as well as phones. Projected size ranges from 4 to 130 inches with a native resolution of 800 x 480.
The 500 lumens aren’t exactly bright.
This is an awesome gift for any movie lover; it enables group viewing – even from the smallest of cell phone screens as it projects onto the wall. Though the resolution will decrease as the picture grows, you can reach up to 130 inches of screen size. There is a decent pixel size, though it’s not the most incredible available on the market. But, for the price, how can you go wrong.
If your teen girl really enjoys movie night, why not make it a little more fun with this gift combo designed to mimic what you can get at the theater? It’s a small gift, but comes with two movie rental gift cards. Then again, you might want to consider an Amazon gift card for the flix that Netflix doesn’t stream, but your teen needs to watch now!
Modest coverage, stylish, feather-light, no visible panty line, highly versatile, anti-microbial, soft and stretchy, cool cotton, breathable, no rolling or bunching. The underwear you want all day, every day!
May stretch out too easily and not as long-lasting as you might like.
These underwear are made with a mix of 77% nylon mesh and 23% spandex. This mixture makes them super soft, super lightweight, and wonderfully breathable.
The Spandex also gives them a nice stretch, so they’re easy to pull on and off even if you’re packing a bit more “junk in the trunk”. It’s also anti-microbial and non-pilling, so you can use it over and over again without worrying about it being damaged in the wash.
However, there is a cotton gusset in the crotch, guaranteed to keep you feeling fresh. The “Cool Cotton” fabric is fast-drying, cooler than regular cotton, and with great breathability—all vital for all-day comfort.
Be warned: the fabric may stretch out over time, so they’re not the longest-lasting underwear on the market.
The feather-light fabric barely feels like anything’s there, and you may just forget you’re wearing anything at all after a few minutes. There are no visible panty lines with these thongs, and they’re designed to avoid bunching or rolling up—perfect to wear under that LBD or cocktail gown. The seamless edges won’t be visible beneath even a tight dress or skirt.
At $26 per pair, these are slightly on the pricier side, but well worth it for cool, invisible comfort. Definitely a great pair to own if you want to feel as good as you look in any dress!
You’ll find more than 75 recipes in this book – each one geared at teen (and tween) cooks with easy to understand language and ideas for every meal of the day.
Some of the recipes will be a bit of a stretch for teens use to takeout.
Whenever your teen takes to the kitchen, she’ll want to have this handy cookbook at her side. It’s filled with the most delicious ideas and recipes that anyone can easily cook. That makes it a wonderful gift before heading off to college – or just because she’d rather turn towards healthy snacks than fattening freezer food.
There are several different formats available, including a Kindle version if you’re working on cutting the clutter in your life. If your teen is more of a baker, why not try this clever cookbook? It’s filled with lovely desserts. And then there’s this Master Chef Junior Cooking Essentials Kit.
Five twine cords are strung between wooden supports, and pictures and memories can be easily displayed using 40 wooden clothespins.
A few users feel the quality could be better.
Each of these hanging photo displays measures 30” by 26”. The wooden supports are 1.5” thick. The five twine cords on each piece can hang a number of photos with the 40 small wooden clothespins. You get one for $20 and with that comes a never-ending stream of room personalization.
Choose between a small selection of colors, but be careful of ordering the two-pack; the price may not work out as well as ordering two single frames. Looking for something more exciting to add to the mix? How about the Polaroid-style camera on this list? We think it’s a real winner. And, if you’re just looking for a stocking stuffer or small display, you could always consider this mini kit. It’s super-reasonably priced.
This particular model has a slimmer body and is overall lighter to carry. It also features a new High-Key mode which offers a soft look that remains bright.
Pictures can be washed out if you don’t have the flash set properly.
Sure Instagram is all the rage, but Polaroids will never go out of style completely. They’re somehow more powerful and definitely a lot of fun. Of course, you need film, but that somehow makes a memory more tangible. And, the camera recommends the aperture setting, so no one has to think about it. If pink isn’t her thing, don’t worry; there are plenty of colors to choose from.
If you are giving this camera as a Christmas gift, you’ll probably want to add in a pack or two of film for instant fun. And, you could always throw a case into the mix too. If her whole life is filters, then maybe a digital photo frame will make her smile more.
This Bluetooth tracker is now 25 percent smaller and remembers where you last had your Tile. You can use your phone to call your keys – and press the button on your Tile Mate to find your phone.
Unfortunately, Tile doesn’t allow geofencing.
How many times did you wish you could track your keys, your phone, and anything else you know you need? That’s the principle behind Tile. This gadget can be slipped into purses, attached to keys, and tucked into gym bags. If it’s close enough for the Bluetooth on your phone to find it, Tile will do so. It will also remember where you last placed something. That’s handy for just about anyone.
There are multipacks available, so you can spread them between stockings or give your teenage girl a set. Then again, you could always add a lovely keychain to the mix. And, perhaps it’s time to slim down altogether with this wallet in a phone case.
