Christmas is coming and that means presents. Today’s post is on stocking stuffers for teen girls!
Digging into their stuffed stockings is one of the things my kids look forward to the most on Christmas morning and I know I always loved seeing what little things my mom found to put in mine growing up.
Sometimes, it is hard to know what exactly to put into those (sometimes large) stockings. This list will help you decide on fun stocking stuffers for the teen girls in your life.

This probably isn’t “kosher” as far as blogging goes, but I’m all about sticking to a budget and finding what works for your family. My kids love digging into their stockings, but guess what?
You don’t have to do Christmas stockings at all if you don’t want to – let me take that pressure off of you right now.
You can also greatly simplify your stocking shopping. Just like families often come up with a theme for their gift giving (something to wear, something to read, something they need, something for fun – is just one example) you could do the same thing with your stockings.
Maybe each year include: a snack, a craft, a book, and an ornament. Or maybe just do all food items. Obviously you can change those however you want, but you get the picture!
Make stockings work for you and your family and your budget. Don’t let any bloggers on the internet, including me, make you feel guilty!

Stocking Stuffers for Teen Girls
Edibles are always a fun idea for stocking stuffers for teen girls, or anyone really. Think of their favorite candy or snacks. Or maybe some new treats that you think they’d like (seasonal items at Trader Joes would be a fun idea).
- Candy bars
- Non chocolate candy (jelly beans, gummies etc)
- Trail mix
- Mints or gum
- Beef jerky
- Larabars (or similar things)
- Favorite snack foods
- Dried fruit
Most people have a preferred beverage. I’m a huge water drinker, but I’m also a big fan of herbal and other non caffeinated teas in the colder months. Add some favorite drinks (or new ones your teen girls wouldn’t splurge on to try on their own) to the stocking.
- Teabags (I love Yogi, Stash, Trader Joe’s and more)
- Gourmet hot chocolate
- A bottle of a fun drink
What is your teen daughter interested in? Most hobbies costs money and use supplies. Her Christmas stocking is a great way to restock her stash of any small items she might need.
- Craft Supplies (Sewing things, yarn, needles, etc)
- Art Supplies (pencils, sketchbooks, charcoals, paints etc)
- Fitness Gear
- Baking Items (This could be specialty ingredients or equipment)
- Photography Items
- Outdoor Gear
As your teenage girl gets close to moving to her own apartment or college dorm, start giving her those little items she will need to start her own home.
Again, it gets expensive to have to buy all the things at once, so she will appreciate having this head start. In the meantime, they can be put in a small storage container under her bed to use as she wants (and I’m sure she will find many occasions to use them while still at home).
- Measuring tape
- Measuring Cups
- Measuring Spoons
- Kitchen knives
- Mini spatula
- Duct tape
- Sewing kit
The list is endless, but think of small things that will be easy to store until she moves out and they can be put away in her new home.
Here comes all the other ideas for stocking stuffers for teen girls! There’s quite the assortment, so you are sure to find something your daughter will love.
As you go through these items, Target, Etsy, Hobby Lobby, and local boutiques would all be great places to shop besides Amazon!
- Hair scrunches (Great example of Target and Etsy being great places to find these)
- Hair coils
- Earrings (Again, check out Target and Etsy shops)
- Necklace (Same 😉 )
- Ball cap
- Winter hat
- Winter gloves
- Socks (Fuzzy socks, wool socks, fun socks)
- Shirt (maybe a fun graphic t-shirt you know she’d love)
- Nail polish
- Make up
- Make up brushes
- Lip balm (Maybe Burt’s Bees or look on Etsy and support a small company.)
- Key chain
- Gift Cards
- Pens and Pencils (Papermate Flair are fun or else maybe some gel pens)
- Sharpies (Regular and fine point would be great)
- Notepad or Sticky Notes
- Water bottle (All my kids like their Hydrocells)
- Essential Oils (Plant Therapy is my favorite!)
- Bath bombs
- Hair Products
- Silk pillowcase
- Microfiber hair towel
- Book (There are so many good books out there – it can be a classic novel, a book you know she loves, a new release)
- CD (or digital download)
- Small game (Farkle, Set, Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza)
- Small succulent (placed carefully on top)
- Phone cord
- Phone case
- Mini portable speaker
- Christmas ornament
The possibilities are endless! You might just have to think outside of the box a little.
