What Should I Get My Daughter For Her 13th Birthday?

I want to know what to give a 13-year-old girl for her birthday or Christmas. Look no further than this list, which I’ve compiled based on the popular gifts with my 13-year-old daughter and her peers. There’s a range of skills, from luxury gift ideas to more practical but equally desirable things young teen girls will adore. So, what should I get my daughter for her 13th birthday?

The age of 13 is a milestone. The beginning of adolescence signifies numerous changes for children and us as parents. In my experience as a parent, this is a time when girls become more self-conscious and sense a greater need than ever to fit in with their peers while simultaneously being extremely eager to establish their individuality.

What Should I Get My Daughter For Her 13th Birthday?

You will find the ideal birthday present for your soon-to-be-13-year-old by perusing this extensive list of the best items to give a 13-year-old girl.

1. The Flat Lay Makeup Bag

My daughter has an identical purse. It contains many products and opens flat (the clue is in the name! ), making it incredibly simple for girls to find what they need and quickly close it when they need to dash.

2. STYLPRO Mini Beauty Fridge

Indeed, beauty refrigerators exist! Especially for the generation of TikTok users. This StylePro fridge is a favorite, and super style-conscious teens will adore how its aesthetic adds to their room.

In addition to being a beautiful luxury gift, the refrigerator is practical for extending the shelf life of hygiene products.

3. Danielle Creations Quick Dry Turban Towel 

My daughter and I each own one of these hair turbans that dry quickly. The turbans are made of soft, ultra-absorbent microfiber and have a small button to secure them in position. They dry your hair without you having to rub it, resulting in a sleeker coat that dries more rapidly.

4. Air Up A Water Bottle (3 Units Included).

AirUp releases scented air into your mouth as you drink water, which your senses interpret as flavor, deceiving your brain into believing you are consuming a flavored beverage without adding carbohydrates or chemicals. What adolescent wouldn’t adore the high-tech alternative to water?!

5. DIOR Addict Lip Glow Oil

Dior Addict Lip Gloss is an immaculate beauty cult classic and a true indulgence for the average 13-year-old. However, if your adolescent appreciates luxury beauty brands, she will adore this gift.

6. Lumie Bodyclock Spark 100 

As is well-known, teenagers have a different circadian rhythm than individuals of other ages. Help a teen lady get up for school by giving her the gift of natural light! This exact alarm clock belongs to my daughter, and it makes a difference.

7. Heartstopper Volume One

The Heartstoppers series is a massive hit on Netflix, so giving the book as a present is a fantastic way to get hesitant teenagers to read instead of mindlessly scrolling through TikTok and YouTube.


The most stylish method to conceal a spot! Oh, how I wish these were available when I was a teenager! My daughter adores her Starface stars, and they expedite the clearing her acne.

9. Tickets To See Their Favorite Music Star

Tickets to see Harry Styles at Wembley Stadium were arguably my daughter’s favorite gift ever. That opportunity has passed, but access to performances or major music star concerts is virtually guaranteed to be a popular gift (as long as you are confident that the recipient enjoys the artist!).

10. E.l.f. Supers Skincare Mini Kit

E.L.F skincare is fantastic for delicate young skin because it is ultra-gentle and a popular brand among preteens. Its formulations are 100% cruelty-free and vegan.

11. Kylie Skin Face Detox Mask

What adolescent girl does not adore Kylie Jenner’s skincare and cosmetics line? This detoxifying masque is ideal for teenage skin. The pot will also appear great on the vanity of a thirteen-year-old girl.

12. Steepletone Stereo Cassette Player 

As cassettes are making a revival among Generation Alpha, you may find that this retro-looking white cassette player and recorder is a welcome gift. When she explores my ‘vintage’ cassette collection, my daughter borrows one I purchased a few years ago.

13. ImPress Press-On French Manicure Nails 

Teenage females are obsessed with their nails. These press-ons are a fantastic alternative to nail polish, as they are easily removable and reusable, making them ideal for weekends, special occasions, and school breaks.

14. Picture Paper

Wall collages are currently trendy. You can purchase wall collage supplies, but if your daughter is as artistic as mine, she will prefer to make her own. Consequently, this photo paper makes an excellent gift. Add wall-safe double-sided adhesive and give her access to Canva to create her images.

The brush is extremely lightweight, and the handle is ergonomically designed for adolescent and teen hands.

15. Cherry Fenty Beauty Lip Luminizer and Plumper Gloss Bomb Heat

Fenty by Rihanna is a teen-favorite brand, and a small luxury item from this line will also be well received. This Cherry lip gloss imparts the most exquisite red cherry sheen to the lips (don’t fear; it’s a sheen, not a bright red). Choose a Glass Slipper if a colorless gloss is desired.

16. Joy-Con Pair Pastel Purple/Pastel Green (Nintendo Switch) 

If your adolescent owns a Nintendo Switch, she will enjoy the new pastel Joy-Con controllers. The new colorways are purple/green or yellow/pink (release date: June 2023).

17. Mii Cosmetics Skin Secret Cream Tint SPF25

13-year-olds may begin to observe changes in their complexion, such as spots and blackheads. This skin tint is an excellent alternative to foundation, and it contains SPF25, the most essential hygiene ingredient.

18. Stars Black – Casetify 

Casetify cases are both practical and adorable. They are constructed from two impact-resistant, shock-absorbent plastic layers, with additional protection around the screen and camera optics. My daughter has had hers for a year, and it still looks and functions well!

19. E.l.f. Halo Glow Liquid Filter 

E.L.F Halo Glow Liquid Filter is a popular alternative to Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, adored by adolescent females whose budgets do not allow for Charlotte Tilbury.

20. Apple AirPods With Wired Charging Case (2nd generation)

Does your mother enjoy listening to audio during her daily commute? These wireless AirPods are the ideal enhancement for mothers still using outdated headphones.

Consider giving your daughter a piece of fine jewelry, a heartfelt letter or journal, a day of adventure or experience, a personalized memento, or a hobby-related item for her thirteenth birthday. Personalizing the gift to her interests and preferences will make her special occasion memorable.
