Favorite  2022 Christmas gifts for teen girls and young women

1. Lululemon

This brand is at the top of our daughters’ lists, and there is so much more than leggings. Great workout and athleisure apparel but also fantastic accessories, too. They are incredibly durable clothes and keep their shape for longer than we would have expected. The Align leggings are unbelievably soft. Expensive but worth the price.

2. Viscosoft Faux Fur Blanket

A blanket that is silky soft, lightweight, stretchy, and reversible? Yep. The Faux Fur collection from Viscosoft is all of that. Plus, there are three cozy colors (tan, grey, and dark brown) and four different sizes, each with an affordable, bang-for-your-buck price tag.

It’s hard to decide what we love more…the dog or the blanket!

3. Lap Desk

This lap desk has a ledge to keep her laptop from slipping and a mousepad and phone holder space. This well-priced desk is available in six colors.

4. Kyle Cavan Jewelry

We have fallen in love with Kyle Cavan, whose collegiate jewelry pieces are elegant and true keepsakes. They have chosen iconic buildings and retro logos to create lovely necklaces, bracelets, and more.

5. Personalized Note Cards

We love a gift of personalized note cards and think that the selection at Minted is perfect for teens and college women. There are styles and color combinations that will make this very personal gift very special.


6. Project Repat T-Shirt Quilt  

Project Repat T-Shirt quilts are consistently one of the most popular gifts in our G&F community. Transform a stack of your teen’s t-shirts into a practical and sentimental gift with the help of Project Repat. This is especially nice for a soon-to-be high school grad who can take a bit of home with her to college.

7. Notes to Self Socks

Notes to Self socks offer words of encouragement and are available now in pretty gift boxes. Who wouldn’t love comfy, new, and matched socks, especially when they inspire your daughter’s day off to the right start?

8. Camera Style Crossbody

Inspired by camera bags, these new crossbody bags are available in 10 trendy shades. They have three outside zippered pockets and two interior compartments, making it easy to keep a phone, wallet, keys, and sunglasses, and more easily accessible.

9. Olay Facial Electric Cleansing Brush

This popular and well-reviewed facial brush is suitable for any skin type and can deep clean by unclogging pores and removing make-up residue. With two intensities, it can be used as both a cleanser and a way to intensify a moisturizer.

10. Little Words Project

We are so impressed with Little Words Project and their company mission: to make jewelry that inspires people to be kind to themselves and share that kindness with others, one bracelet at a time. Take a look at the best-sellers.

11. Smiley Face Slippers

One of last year’s most popular items. Comfortable, fluffy, and sure to make you smile.

12. iOttie Car Phone Holder

More than anything, we want our teens to be safe, especially when they’re driving. This top-rated phone holder sticks on the car’s dash or window and can be adjusted to an angle that makes it easy for your daughter to use her phone hands-free.

13. Do Your Laundry

This is our favorite book to give any adulting teen. Filled with practical and very funny advice from author-illustrator Becky Blades to her two daughters, this is a perfect gift for your daughter this Christmas.

15. Lululemon City Adventurer Backpack Mini

These backpacks are stylish and functional from one of our teens’ favorite brands. Great for school or the gym.

16. Everywhere Belt Bag

Everyone loves the Everywhere Belt Bag (buy early because these will sell out) for a hands-free belt bag in navy, opal, and red merlot.

Or the Everywhere Fleece Belt Bag (these are selling as fast as Lulu replenishes stock), back in stock for now in burnt caramel, ivory or black. But they will be gone again soon, so if you want it, grab it.

17. External Battery Charger

There is NO better safety device for your daughter than a charged phone, and this charger is very popular. It’s high-speed, lightweight, and compact.

18. Lokai Bracelets

We think these bead bracelets are lovely on the inside and out; Lokai is a socially responsible brand with a mission to help everyone find balance along life’s journey. Each bracelet is infused with elements sourced from the earth’s highest (Mt. Everest) and lowest points (Dead Sea). Plus, we love that the company donates 10% of net profits to charity.

19. Glossier Cloud Paint

Glossier is a favorite cosmetics line and this unique blush, “cloud paint,” is something any teen or young woman would love to try. Available in six shades.

In the winter, especially in cold, dry climates, we need a thicker moisturizer for skin and lips. Glossier has many scents and colors to choose from in their Balm Dotcalm line.

21. Everlane Loungewear

We love Everlane loungewear, which has tons of comfortable and cute clothing that teen girls want to live in all holiday long.

Meet Oodie (pronounced “hoodie” without the “h”): the wearable, washable, huggable, affordable, and ADORABLE blanket. Every day is a G’Day, thanks to this Australian brand.
