Holiday Gift Guide for Teenagers

 *This post contains affiliate links.  As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Today I’m sharing a few good options for the teens in your life.  Our kiddos are slowly starting to transition from the kid phase to the teen phase, so some of these items are on their wish lists…


1 – Belt Bag

Everyone is carrying one of these belt bags these days… and for good reason!  They’re lightweight and small, you can wear them as a cross-body or as a true belt bag, they hold just the right amount of stuff, but they’re not too bulky.  It comes in 43 colors and it’s highly rated at 4.6 / 5 stars with 15K+ reviews.  I have this bag in two colors, and I can say that it’s identical to the ever-popular Lulu bag aside from the Lulu logo, of course, and it’s only a fraction of the price.  You could even fill it with a few accessories before gifting as an added surprise for the receiver. 


2 – Adjustable Dumbbell Set

These 5-in-1 adjustable dumbbells offer weight options of 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 pounds in a single compact design.  Effortlessly switch between different weights to customize your workout, catering to all fitness levels from beginner to advanced.  These are highly rated at 4.5 / 5 stars with 11K+ reviews, and they’re currently 33% off with an additional $10 off coupon that you can clip.


3 – Smiley Face Slippers

These slippers are cozy, easy to slip on, and they come in a variety of colors.  These are great quality, and they’re comfy, too.  Perfect for the teen who loves to lounge around the house and be cozy.  They currently have a $4 off coupon that you can clip, too!


4 – Stanley Tumbler Straw Toppers

It seems like everyone is carrying a Stanley Tumbler around these days, so these cute straw toppers are not only festive, but practical, keeping dirt and germs out of your straw.  This set includes a few everyday designs as well as a Christmas tree.  These would make the perfect stocking stuffer!


5 – Pouch

This STUFF zipper pouch is perfect for holding makeup, school supplies, or anything else for a day of travel.  It comes in a variety of colors, and it’s highly rated… very trendy right now, too!


6 – Stanley Tumbler

If your teen doesn’t already have a Stanley Tumbler, there is a good chance that it’s on their wish list this holiday season.  The Stanley Tumblers come in a variety of colors and sizes, and they keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot for hours.  They are dishwasher safe, BPA-free, they have a lifetime warranty, and they make staying hydrated EASY.  I recently made the switch from my beloved Yeti to a 30 oz. Stanley Tumbler, and I totally get the hype.  I absolutely adore mine.  Having a straw is much more convenient for drinking, and the handle makes carrying a breeze… especially when you’re a mom like me and you’re constantly walking around with an arm-load of stuff.


7 – Golden Goose Look-a-Likes

These Havana slip-ons give all the GG vibes with a much lower price tag.  They come in tons of different colors, and the reviews are fantastic!


8 – Mini Refrigerator

What teenager wouldn’t want a mini fridge in their bedroom?!  I always thought that would be the coolest thing!  This fridge holds 4 liters, or 6 cans, and it’s large enough to hold skincare items for the beauty lover.  You can also toggle back-and-forth between cooling and heating, and it’s portable.  It also comes in several different colors including a neutral white one.  It would also make a great gift for any breast-feeding mother who has to pump and store milk at work.


9 – Guy’s Guide to God, Girls, and the Phone in Your Pocket by Jonathan McKee

This book includes 101 real-life tips that will help encourage faith, and it gives real-life advice on a variety of topics including relationships, technology, hygiene, and spirituality.  It has 4.7 / 5 stars and the reviews for it are fantastic!


10 – Disco Ball Phone Attachment

This disco ball plugs right into your phone, computer, or tablet, and it provides disco ball lights on the go.  It’s an instant party that your teen can keep with them at all times!  Seriously how fun is this?! 


11 – Bruh. Tee

This tee is self-explanatory.  I don’t know a single tween or teen who doesn’t use this word constantly, so why not let them wear it on their shirt?  Haha.  This shirt comes in a variety of colors so there’s something for everyone.


12 – Folding Light-Up Makeup Mirror

This makeup mirror is a great full-size, but it folds flat to make it portable for travel.  It has three light-modes from dim to bright and comes with a USB cable for charging.  Olivia has this makeup mirror for dance recitals, and I can tell you that it’s AWESOME.


13 – Disco Ball String Lights

We are big fans of string lights in our house, and this set of disco ball string lights is extra festive!  Perfect for the teen who loves a cute bedroom!


14 – Pickleball Set

Pickleball is all the rage right now, and this is a great set to gift to any teen who loves to stay active.  It comes with 2 rackets, 4 balls, 2 cooling towels, and a carrying case.  It’s highly rated with excellent reviews and it’s currently 15% off.


15 – Thumbs Up Phone Holder

This phone holder has a universal head that can rotate 360 degrees, allowing horizontal and vertical placement.  The thumbs move up and down so you can adjust the tilt, and it accommodates all phones and most tablets.  This would be another great stocking stuffer for any teen!


And that wraps up my holiday gift guides for 2023, y’all!!  I hope you found them helpful!

  1. I find boys harder to buy for than girls. I like the phone holder at the end!

  2. Great recommendations! As Dara said, boys are definitely tougher to buy for. I'm picking up the belt bag since the 10 year old girl in foster care that we're buying for through church asked for a crossbody purse. My kids are now transitioning from teen gifts to young adult. The end of an era!

  3. Great Ideas! Ella loves her belt bag and Stanley

  4. You have some great ideas! Nathan would love those adjustable weights and the mini fridge. Off to check it out now!
