Goth Girl Gift Ideas
Goth Girl Gift Ideas
Do you need gift ideas for that special Goth Girl in your life? Does she have all the leather studded belts, black eyeliner, tattoos, piercings, gothic jewelry and gothic accessories she needs?
As you may know, Goth is a delicate mix of attitude, fashion statement and a musical choice. The gothic look has been around for centuries and has become even more trendy in the 2000s, with the popularity of goth fashion on shows like True Blood, Vampire Diaries and Lost Girl.
Having been a Goth Girl myself in earlier years, I've scanned the retail stores and have my top picks for Goth Girl gift ideas:
Goth Clothing Gifts
If you know the clothing size of your goth gal (i.e. small, large, 5, 7), then there are many gothic clothing gift choices to consider. Starting at the top, you could consider a favorite band tee shirt, corset or skull decorated tank or jacket. Dropping lower, there are many great leather, pleather and vinly belts available with various goth decorations including studs, chains, rivets, skulls and dragons. I’d steer clear of pants (us girls need to try those on), but a goth themed skirt or dress is also an option.
If you are gift shopping at a mall in the United States, the chain “Hot Topic”, has the best selection of goth and punk themed clothing. In more trendy areas you may find a “Trash and Vaudeville” or “Metropark” chain. There are many more options online, from the universal Amazon.com to Starletsandharlets.com and Infectiousthreads.com.
If you need plus-size goth clothing, try Gothicplus.com.
Goth Jewelry Gifts
I’ve never met a Goth Girl who said that she had enough jewelry. So, if you want to help expand her Gothic Jewelry collection, consider necklaces or chokers made with black beads, black chains or black leather. If she likes pendants you may want to look for jewelry gifts with swords, daggers, skulls, dragons, crosses and rosary themed items. The great thing about gothic jewelry is that you can find something in almost every mall and on hundreds of websites, with many options for every shopper’s budget.
The jewelry brand 1928, available in most larger department stores often has gothic looking options. Online check out Badassjewelry.com, Strongblade.com or Raveneve.com.

Goth Handbag Gifts
We can always use one more “little black bag” to match our outfits. Most women usually prefer a certain bag style, ex. clutch, over the shoulder, backpack. Take a look at what your gift recipient uses today and add a handbag gift to her collection. Goth themed handbags are often black patent leather or strong fabric with goth prints like skulls or black cats.
The supplier Loungefly offers a very extensive goth themed handbag line that includes large and small, leather and vegan friendly cloth, loud and more subtle choices. The Sugar Skull Day of the Dead, Shoulder Bag is versatile enough to go from work to a party and large enough to hold all the gothic make-up you could ever need. Too big? They offer a clutch and wallet version too.
