I have a countdown app on my phone. It tells me how many days till our oldest daughter comes home from college for Thanksgiving (12) and Christmas break (27). I don’t have a countdown to Christmas day, but I’ve seen lots of people on social media already doing their Christmas decorating, so I know it will be here before we know it!
Our 16-year-old has started playing Christmas music in the car, though we won’t do any decorating here until the day after Thanksgiving. We still get a live Christmas tree every year, so our older daughter wants us to do that together while she’s home.
I used to be great about getting most of my Christmas shopping done early. That changed when my girls became teenagers. For one thing, they’re likely to change their minds on what they want fairly frequently. They’re also at the point where they usually choose exactly what they want and I just buy it and wrap it!
However, if you’re shopping for teenage girls this Christmas, I thought I’d share this list of things we either already own or that are on my girls’ list for this year – at least the initial version of it!
We recently re-did our 16-year-old’s bedroom, and she’d like to add this set of Photo Clip String Lights to her room
We bought this Lighted Vanity Mirror for my daughter when she went to college. She can put makeup on while sitting on her bed or at the desk in her dorm room if there’s limited space at the bathroom mirror.
Speaking of makeup, she bought herself this Makeup Brush Set and really likes it.
Our younger daughter is definitely into larger earrings, and leather ones are nice and light! (The Leather Earrings she currently owns I found on Etsy.)
One of our girls has requested a bar necklace that can be personalized with her name or initials.
I considered getting my daughter this Reversible Tote Bag when she left for college. I didn’t make the purchase then, but I’m thinking it might make it under the Christmas tree!
We have a small collection of hair tools already, but I’ve heard good things about this Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Hot Air Brush.
Since their dad’s a Georgia Bulldogs fan, this NCAA Women’s Hoodie would be a popular choice for either one of our daughters. (Lots of other teams are available as well.)
This Cable Knit Pom Pom Throw looks so cozy!
Our 18-year-old’s college roommate has a gravity/weighted blanket, and now she wants to try one! Let me know if you have any experience with these.
Another item for the college girl – rain boots!!
The Fujifilm Instax Mini Camera is a pricier item that’s at the top of our younger daughter’s list at the moment.
Both of our girls like to write, so this cute Llama Journal would be a nice gift.
Our older daughter already owns a version of this Journaling Bible and now our other daughter wants one.
Our younger daughter went through this 3-Minute Devotions for Teen Girls: 180 Encouraging Readings awhile ago and really enjoyed it.
I hope you will find some of these ideas helpful as you shop for the teen girls on your Christmas list!

This list is great! Maybe in a few years, my daughters would like something off of it. Right now, my oldest just wants books! 🙂
Books are always a favorite with my girls!! I didn’t put this on the blog list, but my younger daughter has asked for The Penderwicks series of books (there’s five of them). She’s checked out the books many times from the library and decided she would like to have her own set at home.
I can affirm YES to ALL these!!! This list is sooo Annelise! Literally every.single.item.
