Picking out the perfect gift for a teen girl isn’t always easy. If you’re feeling clueless, check out these trendy gifts for teens inspired by the products they love on TikTok.
TikTok is filled with clips of people raving about their favorite products, most of which quickly go viral and became an absolute must-have for (almost) every teen.
Whether you’re looking for a cool beauty product, clothing she’ll actually wear, or just something she won’t make fun of when talking to her friends, there’s definitely something for everyone below.
Alure Three-Barrel Curling Wand
There are barrel curling irons, curling wands, and hair straighteners, but this year, a slightly different tool took over: the three-barrel curling wand, like this Alure option. Yes, it’s clunky, large, and looks extremely complicated, but it’s actually the easiest way to get those perfect mermaid waves.
There are tons of video tutorials on TikTok on how to use these, so it makes a really great gift. This one is highly rated because it works quickly without burning the hair.

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizing Brush
If the teen girl you’re buying for doesn’t already own a One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizing Brush, we promise you she wants one. This revolutionary hot tool has become a must-have for everyone (not just teens) who styles their own hair.
As stated in its name, it’s both a hair dryer and styler. It dries wet hair with a blast of air while also styling, so it looks sleek, frizz-free, and ready to go. It makes it so easy to do at-home blowouts, and it lasts forever.

The Beauty Washing Machine
This Beauty Washing Machine does exactly what it says. It’s an adorable tiny washing machine for beauty supplies. Is it any surprise something this cute became popular on TikTok?
It’s the easiest way to wash makeup brushes and sponges. You just put them inside with some soap and press the button, and then the sudsy water gives them a nice deep clean. There’s basically zero work and a great payoff. It’s also fun to use and makes the perfect stocking stuffer.
A Cooluli Classic Series Mini Fridge
Another fun beauty gadget that’s also really useful is this Cooluli Classic Series Mini Fridge. Modern teens are more interested in skincare than, probably, any previous generation. That’s why this tiny fridge (why are small appliances so cute?) is a must-have.
It’s the perfect size to hold a handful of her favorite skincare products, like moisturizer, a jade roller, a facial mask, toner, or sprays. It’s also super quiet, lightweight, and compact. The four-liter size is perfect because she can also stash small snacks and a drink inside.
A Hydro Flask Water Bottle
We have no idea how the brightly colored Hydro Flask became the trendiest reusable water bottle a teen could own, but it happened—and they’re genuinely excellent. This one is insulated, so it’ll keep drinks icy-cold or hot for hours.
The wide mouth makes it easy to take a swig no matter where you are or what you’re doing. These are also dishwasher safe, so they’re super easy to keep clean. They don’t sweat either, no matter how long liquid is in there. Plus, they look cool!

Dr. Martens Platform Boots
Yes, Dr. Martens are still cool. These are all over TikTok, as well as fashion blogs and magazines. They’re pricey, but if taken care of properly, they’ll last pretty much forever.
They’re also super versatile and go with anything. You can definitely rest easy knowing whoever you buy them for will get a lot of use out of them. They make an excellent gift if you’re looking to splurge a bit.

Leggings are a wardrobe staple for everyone right now, but especially teen girls. These from Colorfulkoala are a TikTok favorite because people claim they’re a nearly perfect dupe of the pricier Lululemon Align brand.
Made of super-soft fabric that stretches without appearing transparent, they’re just high-waisted enough and incredibly comfortable. Reviewers love the high-quality feel, which is even better considering the price. These come in a few colors, but you can always go with classic black if you’re unsure which she would like best.

Loyal Sea Star Projector Nightlight
Projecting lights like this Loyal Sea Nightlight has been huge on TikTok. It makes a fun, affordable gift for a teen girl. This one has a rotating head that offers multiple patterns as it lights up the ceiling. It can also be plugged into a USB port in the car, and it’s mini-sized so it’s easy to tote around.

Pavoi Gold Hoop Earrings
Chunky gold hoops are a huge trend right now. However, they’re also a classic piece of jewelry that won’t be going out of style any time soon. If you don’t trust your teen with a more expensive pair, opt for these Pavoi 14-karat gold hoops.
At less than $15, they’re a great deal. Plus, they have over 10,000 positive reviews on Amazon. Customers love their quality, and how light they feel. They’re also the perfect size to work with any outfit.

Sedona House Animal Print Throw
When in doubt, buy a super-soft blanket. This one from Sedona House is so fuzzy and cloud-like, she’ll want to stay wrapped in it all day. The gray and sand leopard prints are super cute and fun, but it comes in solids, too.
This is perfect for cozy winter days at home, and it’s something she’ll use for a long time.

SOJOS Blue-Light Blocking Glasses
Teens are on their computers, phones, and tablets more than ever. Plus, during the pandemic, they’ll likely be looking at a screen even more for virtual learning. That’s why a good pair of blue-light blocking glasses make a great gift. This Cat-Eye style from SOJOS is super trendy right now.
There are a few colors to choose from, but they’re all classic and minimalist. The round shape is also pretty universally flattering. They don’t give off a dark hue as badly as some blue-light blocking glasses do, and they’re also comfortable to wear.

The Ordinary Peeling Solution
It’s hard to buy makeup or skincare products for someone else because you never know exactly what works for them. However, something like The Ordinary Peeling Solution is a pretty safe bet. This popular product is highly rated on TikTok and everywhere else, too.
It’s an exfoliating solution that fights acne and improves the overall look and texture of the skin. It also provides a nice glow after just one use, and isn’t too harsh, so it’s good for most skin types. This is an especially helpful product for teens who struggle with acne.
Magnoloran LED Photo String Lights
Teens might take all their photos with their phones, but they’re still printing them out (well, at least some of them). This Magnoloran LED Photo String Light set is the cutest way they can display their favorite shots, whether at home or in their dorm room.
It features 20 photo clips and is battery-powered, making it super easy to set up. The lights make it look magical and adorable. It’s a truly unique piece of décor.

Forget Ugg boots! Now, everyone wants these Ugg Fluff Yeah Slide Slippers. They’re warm, cozy, and comfortable, but won’t make your feet feel overheated because there’s still some airflow.
These also have an ankle strap to secure them so they won’t slide off. They come in a whole bunch of colors, from neutrals to super-bright options.
