Best Gifts for Girls Aged 13 Years Old

Updated on August 7, 2014

What Does a Pre-teen Want for Christmas

My Daughter will be 13 this year, and I have found this the most tricky age to buy her gifts, Is she still a little girl or is she moving more towards older girl gifts? If you are wondering what to get for your 12, 13, or 14 year old Girl this year maybe we can help. This age group is quite similar so what are the Best Gifts and presents to give this age group.

Well luckily for me my daughter has helped me put together this ultimate gift guide. I think this age group is definitely developing more towards teen style gifts, getting more into their appearance and experimenting with fashion and their style.

This is actually quite a difficult age group and are starting to shy away from the classic toys for girls and moving into being concerned with their appearance and style so many of these gifts are just great for them.

My Daughters Best Ever Gifts - A Keyboard and a Kindle Fire

introducing a new wave of "youtube" babies, everyone wants to be a star.

My daughter just loves the fact that she can search on her kindle for a song, and learn how to play along.

She has not taken 1 proper Piano lesson yet can play all sorts of chords and music.

The Hottest Gift for Teen Girls This Year - ....the kindle fire and why its the best gift ever....

The kindle fire lets you do more than just read books. With music, Internet access, stream movies this is the hand held tablet to have this year. My Daughter wanted a laptop/netbook or basically access to her social media and you tube.

The Kindle fire HD does it all at less than half the price.

IT is a great gateway into technology and does everything and more that they need at this age.

This is my daughters main present for Christmas this year. My Daughter has learned how to play the piano via you tube all from her kindle! I am so impressed by this

Kindle Fire HD 7", HD Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB - Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation - 3rd)

Definitely buy a good cover for your kindle, they are hardy and more robust than laptops but still need protecting.

Experimenting with Their Hair - Al little girls love playing Hairstyles

From a very young age my daughter loved playing with her dolls hair, my hair anyone who would let her brush their hair.

So It seemesd only appropriate at this age to let her have a Styling wand.

I love the simplicity of creating these gorgeous curls.

Hair Styling Wand to Create beautiful curls - having fun styling their hair.

I do like the idea of giving hair accessories to my daughter, this is also part of growing up and mainatining their appearance.

these get hot, hot hot, but instantly curl their hair. Extreme care should be used at all times


This Age Group is Difficult to Buy For - but at this age access to being a little bit grown-up is okay

There is much debate about children growing up too quickly, and sometimes I think my daughter is older than her tender years, so I want to create a good balance for her, Although some of the gifts were "older" I felt as though they were sprinkled amongst really good age appropriate gifts. For her to be able to experience more grown up things like experimenting with Make-up and hair accessories, but only under my supervison.

What do you think?

Should we still be buying toys and gifts for our little girls or wisely buying age appropriate gifts that take them into the teenage years?

Don't Forget They Are Still Young

although they don't like to be reminded

Sometimes the most surprising gifts and the best received and most treasured.

My daughter loves penguins and I found this beautiful hand made crochet penguin,

that not only my daughter loves but inspired me to take up the craft itself and teach my daughter to crochet.

So sometimes that little something a bit special is loved and adored forever

I bought this from Pat over @ Land of Crochet Critters and it stays by my daughters bedside

Give a gift that teaches a life skill - A gift that lasts a lifetime

How about their first sewing machine, my daughter got a sewing machine from her Uncle. And we love the easy crafts we can make, we even made her a memory quilt from all her old favourite special tshirts. The quilt is her favourite thing of all time, both because she made it and people gave her the t-shirts and they hold special memories. Sewing really is a life skill that I learned as young child and love doing today.

      Very exciting thinking about the gift choices available to make your princess happy. I can see some of Rebecca in this lens. Obviously she influenced your young girls gift choices. :)
