Tonight, Kevin caught Lola on the staircase, where Love the Elf was perched for the day, confiding in him: “I want a treehouse. I want a treehouse.” Sigh. I have mentioned before how challenging it is to shop for my girls, but nothing is harder than picking the right present for a teenager, and this year I have at least a couple on my list, so I’ve been forced to embrace my inner teen in creating this list. Fortunately, my teenile tendencies make this pretty easy, as I often catch myself wishing I was one of the cute teens in the PB Teen catalog. Since I can’t go back to being a teen, I’ll have to settle for shopping for one. Here are my ideas for the best gifts for teen girls – all almost guaranteed to please the pickiest people on your list.

So that’s my take on some of the best gifts for teen girls this year. Can’t find something for the girl in your life on this list? Consider a gift card or tickets to a concert or other favorite attraction. Or, in a pinch, cash. Some teens are virtually impossible to shop for!
