The Perfect Gifts for 17-Year-Old Girls

There's a reason why so many songs are written about the age of 17: it's an important year!

While they may not be legally old enough to vote just yet, 17-year-olds are still young and fun while also being mature enough to handle themselves on their own (most of the time, anyway). Because of this interesting balance, however, 17-year-olds can also be a bit hard to shop for—especially when it comes to gifts. This is especially true for 17-year-old girls, no matter if it's a birthday, Christmas or any other occasion that requires gift-giving. Thankfully, we're here to set you up for success with our list of the perfect gifts for 17-year-old girls:

A Kate Spade Pendant Necklace: $58

While she may have outgrown a lot of the jewelry she's been gifted over the years, a classic letter pendant like this one from Kate Spade never goes out of style and will last in her wardrobe for ages. Plus, it's personalized with the first letter of her name to make it an extra-perfect gift.

A Sephora Gift Card: $10+

If you haven't caught the theme of 17-year-old girls being somewhat difficult to shop for just yet, you soon will. However, one thing that will always pass the test is a gift card to one of their favorite stores, and Sephora really is second to none.
