A reader asked me for gift ideas for 13 year old girls. I happen to have a 13-year-old daughter so here’s what I’m learning is cool to give as gifts. (This is a HARD age to buy gifts for, don’t you think?)
Gifts for 13 Year Old Girls
Wireless, rechargeable headphones that fit inside your backpack or pocket. Perfect gift for 13 year old girls who love their music!
Oversized Knit Beanie
This is super cute and WARM!
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer
This is a great series for teen girls! When Prince Kai asks Cinder, a human with cyborg parts, to fix something for him, she becomes entangled in a plot that puts her life at risk and the entire country’s fate is hanging in the balance. And, it turns out she’s not who she thinks she is. This is an AMAZING can’t-put-it-down series based on fairy tales like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Red Riding Hood! And, every book is just as good as the previous book.
Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker
Bose high-quality sound with a waterproof, silicone exterior. Charge up to give yourself 8 hours of play time on the go. It’s compatible with Google Now and Siri.
With online learning, these are a must for almost everyone.
In the Stars Fragrance Mist
I like that this Bath and Body Works spray is inexpensive ($15) and smells yummy like starflower, sandalwood musk, sugared tangelo, white agarwood & radiant amber. It’s currently the only thing my 16-year old wants for Christmas.
iPad Pro + Apple Pencil
Both the Pro and the Apple Pencil have been much-used gifts for both my girls. They’re loving the pencil for drawing apps and think the functionality of the Pro is so much better than their old iPads.

This is hands-down the best oil-free, gel-cream face moisturizer with for all skin types, formulated with antioxidant Vitamin C and a Fruit Water Antioxidant Complex.
Rebel Spy by Veronica Rossi
A fascinating historical fiction book about the Revolutionary War time period and a female spy. Frannie escapes from her cruel stepfather in the Bahamas and in a shipwreck opportunity, assumes the identity of a high society lady named Emmeline Coates. It takes careful observation to learn how to be a true lady but she’s successful, living safely in New York where she decides to use her wealth and position to help spy for the Patriots against the Loyalists. Action, suspense, and history — this is a wonderfully imagined adventure based on the life of a real rebel spy.

Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly
A seriously good girl power book for teens — this is the story of five mermaids who journey to find each other and then to the sea witches. An ancient evil is being unleashed and not only is trying to kill the girls, but enslave or kill their communities. Very entertaining!
