Music Gifts For 13 Year Old Girls
Most teenage girls love music and can spend hours listening to their favorite artists.
Consider giving a gift that’ll enhance their listening experience.
Alternatively, give a gift that’ll help them express their musical side.
Wireless Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone
Karaoke fans will enjoy practicing with the Bonaok wireless microphone.
It’s very easy to operate because it syncs with any Bluetooth device quickly and easily.
You also have the option of a cable connection.
It works as a speaker, player, and recorder.
Plus it’s compatible with various applications like YouTube.
When you’re signing, you can adjust your audio with the three main sliders. These control your voice’s volume, the echo, and the music that you are playing.
The sound quality is excellent, unlike other microphones that make you sound like a robot.
My daughter got this as a gift. She sang karaoke for a good 3-4 hours, using all the great cues available for free on YouTube.
Regular earphones already make a pretty cool gift.
A Bluetooth beanie is even better because you can keep your head warm and comfortable at the same time.
The sound is excellent — much better than cheap wireless earbuds. Not high-end headphone quality, but not something to complain about.
You get a double-knitted wool beanie that cushions your ears.
Plus, you can listen to music hands-free while being outdoors.
The beanie I tested has a range of 20ft with about three walls between the beanie and my phone.
The controls are easy to use. You can change songs and the volume using the same button.
Charge the battery for about an hour and get about 3 hours of battery life from it.
Gadget Gifts For 13-Year-Old Girls
Gadgets are probably at the top of any teenage boy’s gift list, but girls love them too.
Perhaps your teen girl doesn’t have a phone or tablet yet? Or possibly she needs an upgrade?
Either way, it’ll be difficult to go wrong with a new phone or phone-related gadget.
The Google Pixel 4a smartphone offers a combination of both quality and affordability.
It manages to provide high-end features like a 12 Megapixel camera while still coming in at a reasonable price.
There is no contest between the Pixel and other smartphones when it comes to camera quality. The Pixel’s HDR Plus camera automatically adjusts your photos’ colors and lighting offering top-notch results even in low-light settings.
Another feature the Pixel has is its adaptive battery. The adaptive battery monitors your app usage and reduces power to less-used apps to make it more efficient. The Pixel normally has 10 hours of battery life of about 10 hours, but can go up to 24 hours.
Note that the Pixel doesn’t have special features like facial recognition and wireless charging.
Overall the Pixel 4a makes an awesome starter phone at a very reasonable price.
Gabb Z2 Phone
If your daughter is desperate for a phone, but you’re not sure if she’s ready for it yet, then you could look into the Gabb Z2 phone which is a safe phone for kids.
With the Gabb Z2 your 13 year old can stay connected to friends and family while keeping them safe. This phone doesn’t have internet, social media, or games, giving parents peace of mind.
There’s no contract, and you can buy a regular plan, where your daughter gets unlimited talk and text, or the plus plan, which also includes image & group text messages.
Both come with GPS location tracking as well.
Portable Phone Chargers
Portable chargers are a lifesaver on those days when you forget to charge your phone.
This 10000mAh battery pack is compatible with the 12” 2015 MacBook (USB-C cable required), iPhone XS / XS Max / XR, Android smartphones and tablets (including the Nexus 7), and other USB-charged devices.
It can charge a phone up to three times and most tablets once.
The design of the charger is lightweight, compact, and sleek — so you easily slip it into your pocket when you’re not using it.
The USB-C and Micro USB ports can recharge the battery in just 4.5 hours.
You can charge your devices only via the Micro USB port.
It is very important to note that the USB-C port is an input port, and it can’t be used to charge your phone.
A micro USB cable is included — while a USB-C, Lightning cable, and AC adapter are NOT included.
Trickle charging provides optimized charging to low-power devices such as earphones, Bluetooth speakers, and other accessories.
I personally own this battery and found them to be a lifesaver when I was visiting Disneyland.
The night before my kids forgot to charge their phones and were already low battery when we got there.
Luckily I was able to charge both of their phones as well as my own.
If you’re looking for a more rugged charger then have a look at this 26800mAh solar charger that supports charging via the USB-C port as well as wireless charging:

Beauty Gifts For 13 Year Old Girls
Most girls love makeup but not all beauty-related gifts might be considered appropriate for their age.
Below are some gifts for a teenage girl who’s just getting started on her makeup journey.
Lip Gloss Bar (Juicy Cherry)
Younger teens adore Tony Moly products, especially the gloss bar and its packaging.
The gloss bar’s smooth texture falls somewhere between lipstick and lip gloss.
It’s a creamy lip balm with a fruity scent.
It has a subtle pop of color that is very flattering.
The bar is packed with Vitamin E to soften and moisturize lips without leaving them sticky.
The gloss can last for several hours at a time before you need to reapply.

The chalk is easy to apply, stays on for a few days, and is easy to wash out.
Plus each pen can be used up to 80 times.
The hair pens are suitable for all hair shades but the best results will show on lighter colored hair.
Aside from makeup and clothing, accessories are how teen girls show off their style.
I picked some options below that are sure to appeal to most teen girls.
Cell Phone Purse
The Crossbody phone bag is both stylish and functional.
It includes 3 main pockets with 5 compartments, plus 8 card slots, and 2 photo slots.
So there is plenty of storage for a bank card, cellphone, lipsticks, paper, cellphone, and keys.
The bag comes with two straps — one long (removable) strap to sling over your shoulder, and a short strap to use as a handbag.
The stitching on the bag is high quality and the zippers are thick and sturdy.
The bag is made with soft but durable synthetic leather with dozens of colors to choose from.
This is definitely a gift that she’ll use for years to come.

Fashion Gifts For 13 Year Old Girls
Girls love fashion!
However, their choice of fashion and style is as unique as their personality.
You know your girl best and should start by considering her current tastes in fashion.
Below are some items to get your ideas flowing.
Doc Martens Boots
Thanks to their good looks and high-quality materials, Doc Martens are some of the best boots you can have.
Pascal boots are among the most popular among women.
This is because their leather is softer and more pliable so it doesn’t rub your ankle/leg.
Plus there is no ankle binding.
This means that there is no painful break-in period and the finish of the leather looks a bit more worn-in.
Also, Pascals are a bit narrower than other Doc models so they are perfect for girls with narrower feet.
Cute Print Dress
This super-cute dress comes in a variety of different designs.
The high-resolution prints include animals, mermaids, butterflies, starry night skies, cats, and more.
The darker colors are great if you’re not into girly styles or want an edgier look.
The dress is cute, comfy, with a slightly silky feel.
Its light, breathable, and swimsuit-like stretchy fabric make it a great choice for summer.
However, it can be worn in spring, summer, or fall by pairing it with a nice coat, blouse, or jacket.
Plus it can be washed in water without fading or shrinking while removing all the stains.
Books, Magazines & Games Gifts For 13 Year Old Girls
Reading and board games are activities that appeal regardless of your age.
Below are some items that your teen might enjoy.
This is a gorgeous hardcover diary with a luxurious feel that will make an amazing gift.
The cover includes a beautiful unicorn with gold foil highlights on a background of pink and blue.
This 300-page journal has blank pages on the left for drawing and lined pages on the right for writing.
The best of is the lock so that your teen can keep your personal thoughts safely locked away from prying siblings.
The unicorn diary also comes with the coolest multi-colored pen.
If she’s not a fan of journaling then it’s also great for sketches and doodling.
Percy Jackson Books
Next to Harry Potter, Percy Jackson is the king of young adult fantasy and a must-read for all fantasy fans.
I got this for my niece and it’s become one of her favorite books.
Her mom has been trying to get her interested in reading with no success.
She would read a chapter or two of other books and then lay them aside.
I stumbled across this book in the bookstore and decided to get it for her.
My niece loves myths and heroes, so I thought she might enjoy Percy Jackson.
She is fascinated with the idea of having Greek Gods in our modern world.
Aside from fighting monsters, Percy Jackson faces problems like struggling to focus in school.
A Card Game
Now that your daughter is a bit older, she will enjoy playing this hilarious family game.
Kids Against Maturity is a simple yet funny card game that the whole family & friends can play.
Each player gets 10 white answer cards and takes turns asking a question from the blue question cards.
The aim of the game is to get as many points for choosing the funniest answer from your answer cards.
Parents can remove any cards they deem inappropriate. There is some toilet humor and flatulence jokes which most younger teens find extremely funny.
Kids Against Maturity is best played with 4 players and should keep your teenager off their phones for at least an hour.

Ways To Give Gifts
Getting a gift isn’t the only thing that matters, it’s how you give it that counts.
Parents should understand the importance of finding a thoughtful and fun way to give gifts to their children.
Going the extra mile and finding a creative way to give a gift shows you care about your kids.
You can help add to the excitement and fun by letting your teens choose their gift(s) with you.
A classic idea that doesn’t need too much planning, but can still be tons of fun.
It’s a great way to show your trust in her now that she’s a teen and letting her act independently.
Take your teen out for the day and let her choose her own gift!
- Food Trip
- A day spent sampling unique snacks and meals can be a great experience for food-loving teens. In addition to restaurants, you can try food parks and food trucks.
- Build Your Outfit
- Visit your teen’s favorite stores and let them create a new outfit. Leaving the store with brand new clothes will make them feel great about themselves.
- Street Market
- Malls aren’t the only place to go shopping. Street markets offer a chance to find plenty of fun and unique items.
Of course, you’ll want to establish some rules with your teen before you get started.
- Set A Budget
- It’s always important to have a budget. You want them to have fun, not to max out your credit card.
- Tell them what’s off-limits
- There might be some items that you don’t want your teen buying. Communicate your expectations from the start so there’s no confusion.
A scavenger hunt is another great idea that will allow the whole family to bond and work together as a team.
This will need some planning to give personalized clues you’re sure they can figure out.
If you have more than one gift, this can be an excellent way for teens to slowly find all of them.
