Gifting For Girls

See the hottest Christmas gifts for girls in 2023.
Claire Pellett
Many families hang their stockings on Christmas Eve in hopes of them being filled in the morning.

What do you want for Christmas? A question that has been asked for many, many years. Recently TikTok’s “For You Page” has been filled with Christmas wishlist ideas for girls. There have even been arguments about what is “trending” the most, for the 2023 Christmas season. This week girls at AHS shared their input on what they wanted for Christmas. Looking at the answers of the AHS students and those of the online “experts” compared interestingly.

“What I want the most for Christmas is a new phone,” said Aliyah Williams. She said that her phone was old, and had been broken for a while.

Sophomore Zoey Kirchhoff said she wanted a new curling iron. She agreed with Williams though, that a new phone would be a “great present” as well.

Sophomore Olivia Jensen wants a pair of gray Nike dunks.

Sophomore Bella Brock asked for a new car.

“A lot more books” would be extra exciting for sophomore Addy Williams.

Zach Bryan tickets top the list for sophomore Ryley Kuhns. Kuhns said that she thought it was “a long stretch, but it’s worth trying.”

What many people want for Christmas, is a list that goes on and on. 

It’s interesting to see if what people around AHS want for Christmas matches what the online “experts” believe people want. According to The Strategist, they published the “63 Best Gifts for Teen Girls 2023.” The list includes gifts that you could find while scrolling through your TikTok’s “For You Page.” Some popular beauty items included were the NYX Fat Oil Lip Drip, Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm, Laneige Starlit Mask Trio, Glossier You Eau de Parfum, and the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush. Along with the beauty products, they had many other items on the website as well. Squishmallows, blankets, lighted vanity makeup Mirrors, Fujifilm Instax Mini Cameras, “The Summer I Turned Pretty” trilogy, Apple Airpods Max, Stanley cups, and Ugg Minis are just a few. 

There are similarities between what the AHS students want for Christmas and what the online “experts” tell us are the trending items wanted worldwide. Although the answers found online may be what some girls already have on their Christmas lists, it is safe to say that not every girl will want something that they see on TikTok. The best gift-giving advice is to learn more about who you are gifting a present to.
