7 Best Gift Ideas For 13-Year-Old Girls

What Presents Do 13-Year-Old Girls Want?

Buying gifts for people can be a hard task, but trying to find a great present for a 13-year-old girl can prove to be especially difficult.

The gift you select for them should fulfill the following requirements:

  • Trendy
  • Aligns with their interests
  • Feels more like a gift for an adult than a child

Based on these criteria, you can see that toys are more or less out of the question. The girl you're buying for may be thrilled to get a stuffed animal from a friend (especially if that friend is a boy), but a plushie from a grown-up would likely make them feel childish.

With these principles in mind, browse this list of popular presents amongst early teens. My niece gave her input on what girls tend to want these days, but read on with your specific recipient's interests in mind. Hopefully, this list will help you come up with ideas, inspire you to find the perfect gift, and bring a smile to a 13-year-old girl's face!

Hair Products

If your 13-year-old isn’t ready for makeup, it doesn’t mean she has no other way of expressing herself and changing her looks in other ways. Hair products are quite popular with teenagers because they let you change up your look any day of the week. Here are a few hair products a teen girl in your life may enjoy.

  • Hair Chalk. This beauty product allows your teen to color their hair and is great if they want highlights or to dye their hair a different color. I think hair chalk is one of the coolest (and budget-friendly) items you can get for a 13-year-old. My niece loves using it to create a pink-ombre effect on her blonde hair. It lasts up to three days if you don’t wash it off!
  • Styling Wand. If she has straight hair, this styling wand is the perfect way for them to change up their look. It does a great job of adding instant curls, and she can try a new ‘do every day. I still remember the day when I first got my curling wand. I couldn't wait to use it and felt like a diva with my perfect curls at school. The wand gets very hot, so make sure to get a heat-proof glove to prevent accidental burns when they try using it.
  • Gift Certificates. If you want to make sure your teen loves and uses her gift, let her pick it out or ask her for a few places where she enjoys shopping. Getting her a gift certificate to a place like Claire’s or Sephora would be a great present and a win-win for everyone.

Pajamas and Onesies

Sleepovers are likely an important social event in your teen's life. Give her an adorable onesie or stylish pajamas to make her the envy of her friends or let her friends know where you got them so everyone can match!

Whatever you choose, make sure the design and style are trendy. Make it a complete set by adding fuzzy socks and slippers to create a winning gift.

Clothing is a great gift idea that allows her to express her style and personality.

Clothing

It's a tricky business picking out clothes that your 13-year-old girl wants to wear to school or when spending time with her friends. It's easier if she picked the clothing pieces so you don't end up buying something she dislikes. You can make the shopping experience the gift and go with her to the mall with a specific budget in mind. That way, she gets clothing she'll actually wear, and you'll get to spend more time with her.

If the thought of shopping daunts you, a gift certificate to her favorite clothing store is a great alternative. She has the freedom to buy what she likes, and you can be the cool person who allowed her to update her wardrobe!

Nail art is an inexpensive and creative way for your teen to experiment with style and design.

Nail Art Supplies

I can't even count how many nail polish bottles my niece owns. She really enjoys painting her nails, and they always look great. Her friends love to do their nails too, and some of them are true artists who display detailed masterpieces on their nailbeds.

If your 13-year-old girl already has many nail polishes, try the following ideas:

  • Nail stickers
  • Nail stamp set
  • Mani-pedi appointment

I know my niece loves when I bring her anything related to nail art. Gifting a large set of unique nail polish colors will make her scream with joy, and you'll be the best gift-giver in the world if you add a nail stamp kit for her to try.

If you want a bonding experience with your teen, make an appointment for a professional manicure and pedicure date. She'll enjoy the pampering and attention, and you’ll get to spend an awesome afternoon of quality time together.

Books are a great gift for any teen reader.

Books

These days, reading is a trendy pastime. Between Divergent, The Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars, and other young adult novels being adapted into movies, you plenty of books to choose from! If she’s already worked her way through the popular novels, you may need to dig a little deeper to find a new series she’ll love.

Here are unique books she may be interested in:

  • The Grisha Trilogy. Written by Leigh Bardugo, this series takes place in an alternate version of Russia in the nineteenth century. The land is racked by war and ruled by a powerful group of magicians called the Grisha. The heroine, Alina Starkov, discovers a long-lost magical power in herself that could set her war-torn country on the path to peace. Alina is whisked away from her humble home to the capital to train as a Grisha and serve the Darkling, the Grisha’s mysterious leader. This series is so entertaining that you’ll want to keep it for yourself. It’s well-written, funny, and depicts a detailed world you’ll want to explore even more.
  • Eleanor & Park. Rainbow Rowell wrote this realistic novel about a star-crossed pair of sixteen-year-olds in 1980s Omaha. Set over the course of a school year, it tells the story of first love between the misfit Eleanor and the half-Korean Park—two people who don’t fit in with the crowd but somehow to fit together. Eleanor & Park is an amazing story by a gifted writer that will have your teen swooning for days.
  • Catcher in the Rye. This is a classic written by the talented J.D. Salinger. The main character, Holden Caulfield, is a cynical and jaded teen that guided many teenagers today through adolescence. He may not be the best role model and the novel may feel a little dated (no smartphones!), but if your 13-year-old girl is anything like I was, she’ll think Salinger was writing just for her.

      The writing was very well done, but the content list is a very wacky aunt and although I wouldn't be mad to receive books and pj's, I would much prefer more grown-up things, and to be able to choose my own clothes. This is just my opinion of so please don't take offense.

      I soooo disagree with this!!! First of all, I don’t like to read! Second of all all this stuff is super childish! 12 year olds want to feel less childish and more adult like!!! Get them like a phone, phone accessories, some new makeup, room decor!! More stuff to make them feel like a teen! It’s depressing when all your friends have all that cool new makeup and stuff and you are wearing my little pony pajamas and playing on your tablet that you have had since you were 6!! Also, let them pick what they wanna wear!! When other people pick out my clothes and make me wear them it makes me MAD

      12 year old girl going to be 13 whose parents won’t get her a phone 

      7 weeks ago

      Ok so I’m going to be 13 soon but I act like I’m 13. The thing is my parents won’t get me a phone and I’m hoping that they will. So I recommend to all the parents get ur kids a phone SERIOUSLY! UNLESS U WANT THEM TO BE ALL DEPRESSED STOP LIVING LIKE WE ARE BORN IN THE 1800S SERIOULSLY. I am pretty sure every teenager agrees with me

      Guys, I am a parent and did a search to get ideas on what to buy a 13-year old classmate of my daughter's. Many of your comments are very funny and quite helpful. But, "phones, iPads..." Really, guys? A phone is $700-800. An iPad about $300. Could you help us out with some ideas that are in the $50-$100 range?? Maybe even a few ideas in the $35 range for those of us who are not loaded? I love the idea of movie tickets and gift cards.

      This is NOT helpful at all. I am 13 and I would not like to get any of these things, I have enough nail polish, I don’t like to read, I don’t want hair chalk ( childish ), clothes ( a girl needs to choose these herself and it’s her 13th birthday get something exciting) and pyjamas are way too childish we’re not 8 anymore. I RECOMEND getting her a phone or a phone accessory, Polaroid camera, makeup or maybe just take her and her friends out to the movies ( DO NOT SIT WITH THEM OR EVEN BETTER JUST DROP THEM OFF) or let her have a sleepover with a bunch of friends but. DO NOT INTERFERE WOTH WHAT THEIR DOING, JUST LET THEM BE). This is a much better example of what a teenage girl would want for their birthday.

      I searched this up because I have no idea what I want for my birthday. To be honest, clothes wouldn't be good because I have so many, like a lot of girls do. Nail polish, I can make a store out of my collection. Hair products are just lame, I mean, most girls want to dye their hair not colour it for a hour then have it go away. Books make sense, but not books we have already read or the books that are now movies that we have already seen. To be honest, a lot of girls don't want books because we never end up reading them anyways. We probably read the books online. PJ's and onzies are for little kids. I know a lot of girls hate them. They are cute when we are 8. That might even be pushing it.

      To be completely honest, I wouldn't want anything on this list because I've probably already seen it, read it, wore it or used it.

      I am a girl who dyes her hair every 3 months because I like the colour I chose. I am a girl who doesn't read many books unless they are popular.

      If your not sure, I suggest just bringing your soon to be 13 year old girl to the movies with some of her friends. PS. don't sit with them.

      I was looking for gifts for my friend and I wrote down almost all the ideas. To be honest, I had more fun reading the comments than the actual article. Sure, it was kind of stereotypical, but the author put effort into coming up with a list. Notice the beginning? About how buying gifts can be hard since we're all different? For all you girls who are complaining, you're proving the author's point perfectly and keep in mind, this article was mostly written for parents who don't know what to buy their growing girls. Don't complain about not being understood when you're not trying to understand the author or your parents when they get you gifts you "don't like". Have a nice day!

      I'm not trying to judge, but I do agree most of this stuff is not what most teenager girls want. Most girls nowadays prefer gift cards or electronics. I personally like anime, gift cards(itunes), electronics, clothes, and some sports things. Also this list may or may not be very offending to some girls, as well as stereotypical. Again I know this is your neices opinion and I'm not trying to change or be rude about it, I'm just saying you should keep an open mind to this stuff and not be so blant and stereotypical. ;)

      And by the way, I dont think we are being snobby, I think we are trying not to be treated like we are little kids. And we also think we can be treated more grown up. Some kids just want more responsibility for cryin out loud! So if u think all of us who think we are not being snobby like me, then good for you. But if you think we ARE being snobby, well then you need to chill out, relax, and re-think your opinion. Because we are NOT being snobby, we just dont wanna be treated like little kids anymore. And it may sound like I am being mean, but I'm not trying to. But if i am, well then i apoligize. But you really DO need to calm down. OK?

      Hey. My birthday is in two days, and I agree with most of these other 13 year olds, and 14 year olds too! Most of us dont like this type of stuff and just because we r going thru puberty, does NOT mean we r snobby and stuck up. And I like to paint my nails and do all that stuff, but i dont like to be a snobby, stuck up teen who thinks that she can do anything just because she is a teenager. ok?

      well, honestly i'm not a "GirlyGirl" more of a horse-back rider, band, gamer, geek/nerd, hippy, artsy girl. I'd just like: new horse pick, couple of band and comic T's, some anime stuff, SuperNatural stuff, necklace, maybe some new B.O.B.s, and a small party with my friends. I am not really a fan of pink (although P!nk is good) and i don't expect anything expensive. Just pick a present you think they'll like and make it come from your heart. That's what I call a great present.

      Oh my gosh hhaahhaabaha i really enjoyed reading all these little diva comments in all their little teen attitude voices. Hanging out with my bestie, trying to get ideas for both our daughters bc they literally said "idk" when we asked them what they want. So we caved and looked up ideas, after a few drinks.

      some of the things we are like oh he**no or oh she's grown out of that, but then when we got to the comments, and I'm reading all of these with different voices and attitudes. ...some girls come off cool but some of you girls mostly the ones denying to be divas and demanding spendy gifts, things as a 30 year old that I've never even had for myself; you girls... you had freaking hilarious voices through me. Thanks for creaking us up! !! And then when Dad spoke up? That was epic

      I think girls these days expect too much. I'm not the richest on the planet and therefore I don't expect a phone or a new laptop every Christmas. If you don't like any of these ideas then don't read this. If you like them, that's good for you because 13 year olds today act like 17 year olds. That's not right. I'm 11. I probably act like 15. Its not right. I'm not being offensive but I just want those rich people to know that they are lucky but they shouldn't have to take advantage of it.

      Whoever has read this far, I thank you.

      Okay, yeah. this list isn't the best.

      I , like most of the other kiddos commenting am a 13 year old girl.

      Its true that I want nearly nothing on this list and I personally think a lot of girls would be disappointed upon receiving hair chalk (its never worked well for me)

      Or any other basic crap that's just an assumption based off the 13 year old stereotypes. But to be fair, are any lists for "gift ideas" accurate? they hardly ever are.

      i cant say I really agree with the way they phrase things to make it seem as if we're all boy crazy divas pretending to be adults, who are foolish.

      that's a bit rude yeah.

      In the end if you wanna get a kid a nice gift, if you know them give something relating to intrests an hobbies, if you don't basic crap like stated above, is a safe bet.

      this list is a good IDEA of what MIGHT teen girls would like. Everybody is different so not everybody is going to like these gifts. If you're into sports then get a basketball or volleyball or whatever sport your into. If you like books then get a bunch of book. You like makeup or a spa day? Create a little bucket of makeup and nail polish and stuff. It's not that hard to think of some gifts and if you don't like these ideas then go to other sites don't just complain about.

      To everyone out there: yes, we teens are complaining, and that probably makes us sound like brats. But really, what we're trying to say is that we hate being lumped into one group of people, regardless of our own interests. It's like saying, "Every guy likes sports." True, there are guys who like sports, but it is far from all guys! As to the "diva" comment, it's probably something that meant one thing to the author, but another to the reader. It doesn't mean that the author meant to insult us, it just is no longer is something teens want to be called, regardless of the former meaning. We're not trying to be ungrateful; we just don't all fit the same mold. Despite good intentions, the author did group us together, and that offends us. Please stop saying that we are brats, because we aren't trying to be ungrateful, we just don't like being stereotyped. Sorry for the long comment!

      To all the teenagers complaining, I think you might be taking this article a little too personally. Yes, there are flaws seeing as the writer calling 13 year old "divas" is a prettty big generalization. But in terms of ideas, it is a pretty good article. It include every single thing that different girls want, but it has a good variety of things. You all are complaining about it not being accurate, but then you go and say that you want something that is already mentioned in the article. And there is no need to be rude to moms commenting about their own daughters if they are being respectful. So please relax, and if you would like to make helpful suggestions then do.

      Hmm...well I'm, too, a 13 year old girl. I think that these other girls are getting a bit...worked up. You need to understand that the parents aren't "13-14 year old girls" and may not know what we want nowadays. Cut them some slack (at least they are getting you a gift overall.) It's the thought that counts and personally, I'd take a hug for Christmas. Parents- consider maybe a visa gift card that can be used anywhere or amazon gift credit if you have no idea what to get.

      14 YEAR OLD GIRL 

      3 years ago

      lol I'm 14 and while anything is obviously appreciated, I've asked for none of these items. I'll help clue you in with the information as follows:

      Camera: these days, everyone wants to be "tumblr." tumblr is a social media site but has been used as an adjective as of late. I asked for a polaroid camera, but a bunch of my friends wanted something more high-end, like a Nikon Rebel T3I (really expensive, I'll tell you now). But any HIGH QUALITY DIGITAL camera should suffice.

      Books: I don't even have time to read anymore -- I have so much homework! books that are in right now are The Mortal Instruments series, ANYTHING by John Green (especially Paper Towns), Divergent series, Maze Runner series, The Giver series, really anything that has recently been made into a movie.

      Clothes: LOOK AT HER PINTEREST! CLOTHES ARE EVERYTHING!

      Shoes: everyone is into Hunter boots, Sperry's, Jack Roger's, Madden Boots, etc. most of the designer brands lol.

      Tech: ya you guessed it everyone wants an iphone 6 sorry

      Beauty/Makeup: sephora giftcard?? no girl has enough money to go out and buy brand-name makeup so you could be her hero real quick. also, girls probably already borrow their mom's straightener or curler so why waste $60+???

      That's really it, I mean you could hit up her social media or her friends but lately everyone wants clothes and/or something techy (most of my friends asked for a laptop, but my family of 3 just shares one so idc)

      I'm here looking for ideas and all I have read is how these ideas suck. How about letting us know what is a good idea, your own short wish list. You are not being very helpful. We know we don't know what you want or we wouldn't be looking at this site.

      I think a lot of you girls who have commented need to go back and read the list again 'this stuff sucks - get me a gift card (on the list under clothes), 'We want electronics' (on the list also). 'I only want books' (on the list under Hunger Game Trilogy). Just remember someone special has come here searching for ideas for you. They want to put thought into the gift because they want to please you. The person who compiled the list has also put in a lot of thought and covered all the bases. Overall - be kind to all. xx

      While I am annoyed at the stereotypes of people my age and gender, and that the article does make a few assumptions, it's not like every 13 year old girl wants the same thing- plus, it's just some suggestions, right? I came here looking for ideas for my Xmas wishlist, and I do like most of the things on the list- especially like Expressively Yours bracelet. There seems to be quite a few people overreacting here, and by that I mean both the parents and the teens.

      LOL! It's funny hearing the kids say "you adults don't know what it's like" - listen kids, we've been there already...yes we do. It's like saying "you don't know what it's like to have eaten at McDonalds!" Ummmm...actually we do. "Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt - next..." Whether you're 13, or 14...whatever age - we've already done it. Only difference is the trends...those change. Now they have Chipotle wraps instead of just your standard Big Mac...

      Really people? All you parents need to GROW UP! Yeah, we're 13 year old girls and we want expensive things! If you were our age you would completely agree! You used to have been our age but guess what? A WHOLE LOT has changed! Things aren't the way they used to be! Especially people like "A disgusted Mom", "Val" , "Dad", you guys need to chill out! We know that we're not going to get everything we asked for, and I'm certain every one of us will appreciate everything we get so just calm down it's not like it's the end of the world!

      Hi Girls. My 14 year old son has a girlfriend for about two weeks now. Can you give me some ideas of what he should get her for Christmas? I'm buying the gift and he won't tell me much about her so I'm not sure what she's into. I was thinking maybe a silver heart ring? Or Alex and Ani bracelet(is that still in style?)Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

      to be quite honest, this makes us sound like brats. im 13. although a lot of us are divas (we all know it.) but a lot of us would rather have electronics or something in that range. here are some ideas that i came up with: penny board, camera, vans, beanies, phone cases, gift cards, boots, band sweatshirts (must have for me.), gift cards, and more. why don't some of us just list some ideas instead of hating on these?

      Hey i am 15 in 2 weeks, if none of these items/ ideas don't apply to you then why don't you look on other websites its quite clear you wouldn't appreciate these items if you recived them off parents or guardians. Remember not everyone recives anything on Christmas, people can't afford things like ...

      -ipads or tablets

      -Apple Imac or computer/ laptops

      -Iphone or any phone

      Just appreciate everything you get, even if it's a 'PENCIL' with your name on it, thanks for reading :)

      These are some great ideas :) I'm a 13 year old girl and I like some of this stuff but you also have to think of the traits , hobbies and pay attention to some of the stuff the girl says or does because not all 13 year old girls are stereotypical divas. Be straight up and ask her what she wants and get a good idea of what categories the things she likes or talks about are in then go on from there ^.^ The ideas on this are good though :D

      This information is not accurate... I am 13 and I do not want any of these items. Why does everyone just assume all girls are all about hair and other products like that. Yes, I curl my hair every once an awile, along with putting nail polish on, but I would rather get a basketball or volleyball.
