Best Christmas Gifts for your Teenage Daughter

in 2020

A teenage girl opening a present for Christmas

Christmas is around the corner! If a teenage girl resides in your home, you will no doubt be facing the conundrum of finding the perfect Christmas present. There is good news though we’re here to help.

Here are our gift ideas that your daughter will appreciate.


Is your daughter intrigued by all things science and maths? Encourage your daughter’s passion for science and pique her curiosity with a STEM Kit. Whether it’s to grow her own crystals or build a robot that can be controlled by codes they designed themselves, the options are endless!

Harry Potter Trivia Board Game

“Wingardium Leviosa!” Calling all Potterheads! Pick up your wands, brush up on those spells and do your best in winning the house cup!

If your daughter has read and is obsessed with all seven of J.K Rowling’s famous books and watched all the movies, they will love a trivia quiz game. Whether it’s a traditional board game or an electronic wizarding game decorated with Hogwarts House logo buzzers the entire family can also join in the fun!

Waterproof Bluetooth speaker

For the music lover in your house, keep her dancing and singing to all her favourite tunes with a Bluetooth speaker! If your teenage daughter is also active and sporty, something waterproof and durable will last the test of time (and survive every time she drops it!).

Watch out, though! She might bring the speaker into the shower. There’s nothing like having your teenage girl bringing down the house as she belts out those tunes while soaking in suds.

Paintball experience

Giving your daughter a paintballing voucher will give her hours of fun with a group of friends while also teaching her great teamwork and communication skills.

Make sure your daughter layers up her clothes. Participants will be provided with a thick combat suit and cap. However, wearing a pair of gym leggings, a sports bra, t-shirt and hoodie underneath the suit will help cushion the impact!


We’re very lucky that Australia celebrates Christmas during glorious summer months! For the adventurous outdoorsy teenage girl, why not encourage her to shred those waves and hang ten?

With Layne Beachley and Stephanie Gilmore as our own Australian female world champions, there’s plenty of inspiration for your own teenage daughter to be her own surfing Gidget. Plus, surfing looks cool!

ZAAP: The gift that keeps on giving

Perhaps your daughter still isn’t sure what she wants for Christmas. Or maybe her special present is out of stock at the moment. Why not give your daughter the gift that keeps on giving with ZAAP.

ZAAP is a leading edge financial and digital tool for kids, which comes in the form of a pocket money Mastercard card (which you can personalise with her favourite selfie) and / or a wearable band.

As the card and band is supported by the ZAAP app, you can simply top up your daughter’s ZAAP account with a special Christmas fund, giving her the opportunity to use the funds when she’s decided on what she truly wants.

As a parent, the ZAAP app gives you full visibility of how your daughter is spending her funds. Meanwhile, you’re giving them increased financial responsibility by letting them manage their own money. Plus, for a limited time only you can order your daughter’s ZAAP for FREE. Choose from the range of 50 card designs.
