The quilted pattern of this makeup bag made out of durable cotton definitely gives off some serious cottage-core vibes, and it is sure to be a hit as a cute gift idea for a teen girl. She can store all of her make-up in this size, 8.3”x5”, or she can use it to put all of her jewelry or even pencils and pens for school. The bag easily zips up so nothing will spill out, and she can easily  put it away and get it out when necessary. 

This bag also comes in two other sizes, small and large, so you could even consider getting her the entire set! This would ensure she has three cute bags to help her stay organized, and on trend, which we all know is very important to teen girls.

3. Silk pillowcases

In case you didn’t know, silk and satin pillowcases are one of the best ways to keep the skin of your face looking fresh day in and day out. Of course it’s important to have a good skincare routine (which we’re sure the teen girl in your life does), but it doesn’t hurt to go the extra mile and include silk/satin pillowcases. The texture of these pillowcases is much softer and smoother than cotton, which means there is less pulling and tugging on her hair, which can lead to frizz or split ends. They are basically a must-have for curly haired girls!

In addition to protecting her hair from damage, silk and satin pillowcases also protect the delicate skin of her face from the dreaded sleep creases and premature wrinkles. They cool to the touch so she won’t have to worry about overheating while sleeps either. Did we mention they come in over 30 colors to choose from?

Teen girls always have their phones on them, so why not help her keep it secure when she’s out and about with a cute phone case?

The crossbody phone case includes room to hold her phone (plus protect it in case it drops) as well as space for credit cards, driver’s license, cash, and other small necessities. 

Made with supple leather, this case comes in three color combos, and is sure to be her new go-to when she’s going out.
