Young girls are getting increasingly hard to gift, which is why I’ve done some extra special research into what is popular and trending in the young and teen girl gift market!

Featured are unique personalized gifts, accessories, fashion and bedroom decor items for girls. Add their name, a monogram, favorite expression.

For Trending gifts and gadgets from Amazon page down. Fidget Cubes and Spinners are currently all the rage!


The Trending Gifts For Girls are below followed by some blurb about them and then… more predictable gifts for girls feature as some of these are quite unexpected!!

Fidget Cubes and Spinners!


You may have seen these colorful, clicky, twisty, pushy, spinny thingies for the enthusiastic fiddler! These are ridiculously popular! I’m not a fan myself having tried one but there is no denying the kids whether they be boys or girls seem to love them! They’re certainly flying off the shelves.

MarvelBeads Water Beads and Orbeez Spa – what the what??? I know, I’ve never heard of them but they’re one Amazon’s best sellers so I’m taking a closer look!

The Spa

“Orbeez are wet and wacky, soft and squishy, fun and funky! The Orbeez Soothing Spa offers girls the ultimate spa experience! Place the Orbeez in the foot tub and immerse your feet in the squishy softness! Sit back and relax as the Orbeez waterfall caresses your feet! The spa also has removable hand trays that can be used as a manicure station making sure your fingers don’t get neglected!”

Marvel Water Beads

“Encourages Sensory Exploration: Fully expanded, these smooth, squishy beads create a soothing tactile experience. Ideal for children with sensory processing disorder & ADHD”

Sensory Play


“Sensory play is what water beads are best for. Kids of all ages will love them. They are so enticing! Colorful, smooth, squishy. ..what more could you ask for to have an enjoyable time. Water beads seem like magic to kids because the beads start out so tiny and grow within a few hours. Just watching the beads grow is an experience in itself. So go ahead, and fill up a bowl to plunge your hands in. Or maybe fill up a bucket to soak your feet in. The possibilities are endless!”

Hmmm ok. I don’t get it myself but having two children and seeing how much joy they get from ‘slime’ I can easily believe this is as popular with the youth as they say!! My kids have even made their own slime.

Exploding Kittens: A Card Game About Kittens and Explosions and Sometimes Goats – I feel so old right now! This is a VERY popular card game, just look at the reviews!! It sounds like anyone who loves cats will enjoy this and don’t worry, the kittens do NOT themselves explode!! Phew. It’s actually family friendly.

ALEX Spa Hair Chalk Salon

Now this I totally get and totally want for myself!! If only my kids weren’t already on my case about embarrassing them! The blurb:

“ALEX Spa Hair Chalk Salon Craft Kit lets your diva make her hair as vibrant as her personality! Glide on temporary color and add strands of shimmering beads to do up her do! Hair chalk can be applied to dry hair of any color and washes out easily with shampoo. This kit contains 5 washable hair chalk pens, 24 metallic beads, hair beading tool and 24 hair elastics. Recommended for children 8 years of age and older.”

I shall interject here to let you know Crayola and Lego (yes something I’ve heard of) are also STILL very popular!!

Shrinky Dinks Creative Pack

I’m so impressed with my ‘street cred’ right now. Not only have I heard of this best seller über popular girls gift item but I have actually bought and used it myself!! It’s pretty cool if you like making your own jewelry and ornaments. You draw on a clear sheet of plastic, pop in the oven and it not only shrinks massively but thickens and hardens to create what is a miniature version of your drawing that can be used in many creative activities. I had a go at making some iced donut charms for earings.

The blurb

“Shrinky Dinks Crystal Clear lets you make unique plastic pieces that look like glass. Just draw or trace an image on the sheet then color, bake and shrink. Make charms, keychains, ornaments, jewelry, toys or anything you can imagine. Create one-of-a-kind items or mass produce your original image for everyone. The pack includes 10-8in. x 10in. clear, transparent sheets and instructions for making and baking. Recommended for children 5 years of age and older. Adult supervision required during baking.”

OK to Wake! Alarm Clock & Night-Light

This is a fast favorite for young girls. A cute nighlight alarm clock that ‘glows’ when it’s time to wake up!


“This bedside alarm clock features fun animations that give it personality! The convenient nap timer and dual night light that glows green to tell children it’s OK to get out of bed make this alarm clock a must-have for families with young children! Includes two fun, interchangeable faceplates: pink flower and green bug. USB cord with battery backup (4 AA, not included). Wall adapter not included. Approximately 4.5″.”

Mermaid Tail Blanket

Something here for teenage girls! Mermaids are very trendy now and I keep seeing these crochet blankets when I am searching for trending gift items so I know these are hot potatoes! Tons of different brands and styles to choose from, for all ages.

MultiLayer Necklaces

I’ve chosen a sterling silver option, bit pricier for Teen Girls. But non silver start from $3! The multilayer necklace is a trend. It essentially replaces the need to wear a lot of different length necklaces as the different lengths are attached as one.

And now for some very popular personalized gifts for girls!!
