It can be difficult to find a good gift for a 17-year-old girl. There’s so much she does NOT want.
What does a 17-year-old girl want as a gift then? She wants to decorate maybe some nice paintings, lamps, pillows, or ornaments. Fine jewelry, makeup, perfume, and clothes. She is also happy when she receives technology gadgets such as a telephone, headphones, or a charging tablet. But let’s go into details.
If you do not know exactly what her taste is here, I thought I would give you some suggestions for gifts that will still be good. I will also tell you why some gifts are a really bad idea.
In addition to this page, I have also written about gifts for 17-year-olds, which are suitable for 17-year-old boys and 17-year-old girls. Feel free to visit that page for more gift tips too!
FURNISHINGS THAT A 17-YEAR-OLD GIRL WANTS
When you buy furnishings as a gift for a 17-year-old girl, it is good if what you buy is very adult and that it should be something that she can take with her to her first apartment when she then moves away from home. Decor that fits well to give her are lamps, paintings, duffel bags, curtains, flowers, a nice bedspread, and ornaments.
Most girls like to get a nice ceiling light. I can guarantee that she will bring it with here when she moves to her first own home.

She will like to have it a little more adult and modern in her room. So much has happened to her liking and taste in recent years. In just a few years, she has gone from being a little girl and loving pink and unicorns interior design to a more adult taste.
Just like when you give away interior design to an adult, you also need to think about what the 17-year-old girl has for interior design taste. It is not your home; you will decorate with the item you are buying, but her room. So it should suit her taste. If you feel unsure of what she likes, it is best to buy something small or discreet as a gift. It is better to give a discreet gift to a 17-year-old girl to give her decor.

A cute little pot with eyes is on a fun interior detail in the room? Insert a nice flower or her favourite candy before you hand the gift over. Maybe a little childish, but I am sure she will love this one.
By discreet things, I mean that they do not have such a strong color, are especially large, and that you do not need to have them in front at all times. Ernst wall lamp is such a discreet object. Very nice and simple design. You adapt it to suit your own taste. It can be both gray or very colorful. A new bed set or a luxurious duvet is also such a discreet gift that is successful in buying for a 17-year-old girl.
A nice bedding is a good gift because it is not something you need to have in front of you.
Buy her a luxury bedding, something she may not buy herself. Good to have in your own apartment later.
A duvet is also a slightly more luxurious adult gift that the 17-year-old girl will take with her when she moves.
A candle lantern can also be a good gift. This one has a nice and discreet design and is from Saga Form.
Omaggio vases are very discreet gifts to give away. It is available with both white black and silver stripes.
Flower and pots
Even the flowers are very practical to give away. A flower is not something that has to do with liking and taste. It is as it is. A flower is a gift you are always happy to receive. If she is not very colorful in her clothes and as a person, put it in a discreet pot or vase. It can easily get a little too much color if all the pots have a different color. In any case, a flower is a good birthday present for a 17-year-old girl.
Nice and discreet pot. Will do well with other flowers.
Not so discreet perhaps, but nice design that many appreciate.
Fragrance candles, sticks and eggs
Scented candles and scented sticks are perfect furnishings to give away. It smells good, and you use it up after a while. If she has a space in her room, maybe an aroma egg will be a perfect gift!
An aroma egg is also a fine interior detail that spreads fragrance.

To buy a painting for the 17-year-old girl, you also need to know what her taste is. If you do not have it, it may be better to buy a letter board. They are very trendy, and on it, she can write the message that suits her just for the day. Buy a letter board as a gift for a 17-year-old girl if you are unsure what her style is.
Letter boards are won with white letters on a black background.

This salt lamp crate a cozy light in her room.
On a light box it is possible to write slightly shorter messages.
But you also do not know how long the 17-year-old girl will stay at home. Maybe she has many years left with studies and other things. It’s stupid to start buying pots and utensils for her to use in her future home. It just takes up a lot of space unnecessarily. Avoid giving pots and other things as a gift to a 17-year-old girl. That kind of thing is just bulky!
MAKEUP AND PERFUME
Makeup and perfume are quite personal things. If she likes makeup, it’s probably a good idea to give her a gift card so she can buy exactly what she wants. The only thing you can safely buy for her without it going wrong is black mascara. Maybe a discreet lip gloss too. But you have different tastes when it comes to makeup. For powder and foundation, it is also the case that we have different skin tones. So it would help if you found what you yourself fit best in as well.
Lip gloss is also a great gift to give a 17-year-old girl.
If you want to find a perfume that she likes, you can sneak a peek in the bathroom cabinet and see if she does not already have a variety that is starting to run out. Another pretty safe way is to look at the perfume shops’ top lists. Then you get at least perfumes that many girls and women like. Here are some perfumes that are usually high on the charts and that I myself like very much:
La Vie est Belle
No, you can not buy clothes for her in the store. They are guaranteed to stay in the closet. It’s not fun to get clothes that someone else has chosen for you. A good gift for a 17-year-old girl is instead a gift card for new clothes. She wants clothes. I can guarantee that. But if you want to give her new clothes, you should buy gift cards instead.

JEWELRY AND ACCESSORIES
Jewelry and accessories are always nice to get. It is easy to find something that suits a 17-year-old girl as a gift. Getting a scarf is not as intrusive as if someone chooses clothes for her. Even if you chose a scarf in the wrong color or pattern, most people usually have some other garments that it will be very nice to have just that scarf for. You can not have too many scarves.
Handbag, mobile phone bag and the like are more important that it is in the right colors. To find out what she likes to look at her clothes and what the bag she usually uses looks like.
