Moving out of childhood is an awkward age, and if you’re looking for gifts for 13 year old girls, you’ll know the struggle. Take a look through this list of awesome hand-selected gift ideas that a newly-fledged teenager will actually want. You could choose a journal that’s made to be destroyed or a guidebook for navigating the choppy waters of teen-hood, or how about a vintage-style record player so she can spin the decks herself?
LED Photo Clip String Lights
Upgrade her bedroom décor with a Magnoloran 20 Led Photo Clip. Much prettier than an old cork noticeboard, this string of LED lights include 20 clips on which she can hang her photos, while also bringing a beautifully soft glow to her walls, mirrors, or even her headboard.
Bluetooth Shower Speaker
This Bluetooth shower speaker makes a useful gift for 13 year old girls who love their music. With four colors to choose from, each one comes with 100% waterproofing, suction cup for sticking to tiles, and a handy metal hook for hanging on a backpack at pool parties and beach days.
BOOP Animal Shirts
If she’s into cute animal pictures she will love wearing one of these adorable Boop t-shirts. Soft, comfy, and pre-shrunk for a long-lasting fit, these tees come with a variety of animal couples on the front as they share a ‘kiss’ underneath a miniscule heart.
Himalayan Glow Natural Pink Salt Lamp
Fill her room with the softest glow by giving her this beautiful Himalayan Salt Lamp. Standing on a 100% natural Neem wood base, the lamp will not only cast a cozy light, but is also reputed to purify the air by trapping air pollutants, and increasing energy by releasing negative ions into the air.
Wreck This Journal
Keeping a journal is a great tool for stress-relief and maintaining an attitude of gratitude, but not every teenager is into these often pretty books. Give her a journal she’ll really enjoy with the ‘Wreck This Journal’ which actively encourages users to poke, drop, and destroy pages as they write.
Custom Name Necklace
Name necklaces have been worn by teenage girls for decades – they’re a rite of passage, really. This one can be customized in a myriad of ways; you can choose from 5 pretty finishes, 12 adorable fonts, and 5 chain lengths that range from a 14” choker to the longer 22”.

Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Camera
Saving photos to mobile phones is easy, quick, and convenient, but it doesn’t have the same thrill as holding an actual photograph in your hand. The Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 takes beautifully clear photos (and includes a selfie mirror), and will print them out there and then in under 5 minutes.
Happy Hipster Animal Shirts
Whether she has a favorite dog breed, or just loves animals in general, the Milky Mug Happy Hipster t-shirt will make a great gift. Available in a range of animal and color options, these tees’ featured creatures all have two things in common – a wide smile and a pair of hipster glasses.
Galaxy Moon Lamp
Inspired by images from NASA’s telescope, this beautiful galaxy moon lamp will make a fabulous addition to her bedroom. Remote controlled, this stunning lamp can be moved through 16 color options, and also comes with 5 brightness modes so it’s suitable as a nightlight, too.
Becoming Me: A Work in Progress
Any form of coloring is relaxing, but with this book, girls will have access to positive affirmations and feel good pages all the way through. Designed to empower girls to be who they’re meant to be, Becoming Me is a beautiful way to encourage self-love while also being fun.
Fearless Thirteen Necklace

Official Teenager 13 Year Old Shirt
Hitting the teenage years is an exciting time, and this t-shirt will help her spread her excitement to everyone she sees. Printed in a beautifully shimmery rose gold shade, this tee comes in either Vintage Smoke or Navy Blue, and is printed with #officialteenager on the front, and ‘13’ on the back.
TONYMOLY Sheet Mask Set
If she follows K-Pop and K-Drama, the chances are she’s into K-Beauty, too. With ten different sheet masks included, this set of Korean masks are made from all skin types, and have been designed to soothe and brighten skin with a range of natural ingredients.
100 Movies Bucket List Poster
There are certain movies that any self-respecting film fanatic simply must see, and this bucket list poster will point them in the direction of 100 of them.

Mini Color-Changing LED Marquee Lightbox
You could leave her inspirational messages every day on this fab and fun cinema lightbox. Measuring 8” x 2” x 6”, this box can be set to white, a single color, or color-changing, and comes with 100 letters, numbers, and symbols so she can leave messages for herself, too.
Happy 13th Birthday Necklace
Whatever your relationship, you can mark it in a poignant way by giving her this sweet necklace on her 13th birthday. Made from sterling silver and with a choice of three finishes, the interlocking rings are symbolic of the bond the two of you share, and hang on a 16” chain.
