With all the pricey gadgets marketed to teenage girls, finding a gift that doesn't break the bank can seem daunting. However, you can find inexpensive gifts that will please and impress her. Instead of focusing on the price tag, consider gifts that are both functional and fun.
Buy a pretty basket at a crafts store and fill it with a couple dozen candy bars. Wrap it in cellophane and tie a ribbon at the top. Get her four $5 gift cards to various fast food restaurants. Buy a set of letter-shaped cookie cutters and make a personalized batch of her favorite cookies using the letters of her name. Gift a cupcake-making kit; give her cupcake liners, a pastry bag, piping tips and icing.
Gadget-loving teen girls can easily be satisfied even on a small budget. Buy a detachable camera for her smartphone, which will enable her to give photos cool effects, such as a sunburst. Or, get her a trendy rubber watch from Rumbatime. Gift a pocket-sized speaker or a tilting desktop speaker for her MP3 player. You could also try a digital photo key chain for keeping her favorite pictures close at hand on the go.
Decor & Accessories
Get some of her favorite photos and make her a photo lampshade. Buy her a vintage-looking tote bag from a crafts store. Get her a self-watering planter so she can have pretty flowers without remembering to water them or a monogram stamp with her initial to personalize stationery or cards. Visit a discount store and buy her an assortment of sweet-smelling candles. Or, make her a necklace, bracelet and anklet set using elastic and pretty colored beads.
Bath and Body
Many teen girls love bath and body products. Buy her an assortment of scented lotions and arrange them in a basket with a card. Get sample-size bottles to keep the cost down and get a bigger variety. Borrow her bath towels and monogram her initials on them. Buy her a new bathroom set; get a matching shower curtain, toothbrush holder, soap dish, soap dispenser and bath mat. You could also buy her a pedicure kit or a bubble bath and loofah set for de-stressing.
