These quilted jackets from Sebby are stylish and perfect for 13-year-old girls! My daughter (who just so happens to be 13) has this very coat and loves it! She feels like it's sophisticated and it keeps her warm too.
LEGOs are not just for boys! My girls love LEGO building sets too and still ask for them every year for Christmas. The LEGO DOTS sets allow girls to use their creative side to create so many cool projects!
This set has a mix of wearable and useful room decor projects and my Maggie has spent hours with this set!
My daughter loves to read. We go to the library and she checks out stacks of big books to transport her all over the world. One of the Carry a Country backpacks was the perfect gift for her!
We have been talking a lot about my German heritage and she is all about embracing that with me - trying new German foods, looking at German decor items, etc. I knew she would love having a bag made from fabric sourced in Germy that she can use for her library trips.
Taaluma Totes is a bag filled with advocacy, love for travel, and the wonder of cultural traditions.
Taaluma is a Swahili word meaning culture - and each bag fully embraces that. They sourced fabrics from different countries across the world which is what makes this brand truly unique. Not only that, but they give back to local communities and entrepreneurs for every country bag purchased.
When I'm shopping for Christmas gifts for my kids, I like to get them a few practical gifts along with toys and activities. This body pillow is a very useful gift that your teen will use for years to come. Maggie loves this body pillow. It's got the perfect amount of squish for the best body support at night!
As a side note, I have one of their side-sleeper pillows as well and sleep on it every night. It's my absolute favorite pillow!
When I was a teenager, I remember spending hours upon hours listening to my favorite songs! Initially, I had a portable cassette player and eventually upgraded to a portable CD player (those were the days!), and, of course, headphones so I could listen anywhere.
The headphones these days have changed quite a lot and are MUCH better. One thing that hasn't changed is that teens till love to listen to music. That's why she'll love a pair of these high-quality headphones from Puro.
These headphones are full of great features like wireless sound via Bluetooth, a volume limit to protect hearing, and a noise-canceling design. They have a long battery life and look great too!
The Yoto Mini Player is the best and easiest way for teens to listen to audiobooks. We have one of these and all of my children love it! While you might think the Yoto is just for younger kids, they actually have quite a few titles in their library that young teens would enjoy as well.
For example, they have classics like The Wind in the Willows and The Tale of Despereaux.
There are lots of other great titles to choose from - you're sure to find some she will enjoy! Plus, they are always adding new titles as well!
Get her a Yoto player and a few cards and she'll have a gift that will bring her hours and hours of enjoyment!
She's not too old for this adorable cat squishy! NeeDoh Cool Cat Dohzee is the purrfect cat shaped squish sidekick. This cozy new companion is comfortable enough to cuddle and an adorable addition to any room decor.
Cool Cat Dohzee is complete with microbead fill making it the ultimate groovy cuddle buddy! It's available in a few different colors too!
Disney is timeless! Whether you are 13 days old 13 years old, or 99 years old, you can wear a Disney tee and everyone is going to love it! Teenagers are getting to a point where getting clothes for gifts is acceptable and when you get one of the cool Disney tees from Teeturtle Fandom, they are going to love it!
My daughter loves Lilo and Stitch, so this shirt was perfect for her. She loved it! They've got tons of other Disney character shirts though, plus Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars!
This do-it-yourself quilling kit is perfect for crafters of any skill level!
Each Create-a-Quill kit provides ample material to create four beautiful cards — two large, two small — and a bonus bookmark. The kits come with instructions, a quilling pen, tweezers, scissors, and paper strips.

My daughter loves these baking shows, and I know that many other teen girls love it too! If your 13-year-old girl is a fan of reality baking shows, this game is a must-have!
Capture the essence of the Great British Baking Show experience in this quick, easy-to-learn, family-friendly game. Lay out tiles according to the recipe as fast as you can, being careful to bake with the right flavors and dough—watch out for soggy bottoms! Gather the most points over the Signature, Technical, and Showstopper round to win!
The teen years are a great time to learn a new instrument. This set from Donner is the perfect kit for beginning violinists. It comes with a violin, violin case, and other accessories.
Thanks to the Internet, finding an instructor to teach her how to play is easier than ever now too! Learning how to play the violin will be a skill she can use for years to come and a great hobby for teen girls!
The Wizard of Oz is one of those iconic movies that is loved from generation to generation. We introduced it to our children a few years ago and they all love it! My daughter was SO excited to see that Ravensburger made a Wizard of Oz board game - I couldn't make this gift guide without including it!
In this adventure book game, players cooperate to help Dorothy through six chapters of adventure from Kansas to Oz, and back home again. Players will work together to complete challenges by guiding characters and discarding Story cards from their hand.
This is a fun cooperative game that teen girls will have a blast playing with their friends and family!
These wireless earbuds from EPOS are perfect for teen girls! Whether they are listening to music, playing a game on their phone or video game system, or watching a movie on their tablet, teen girls will love the crisp sound of ease of use with these GTW 270 Hybrid earbuds!
Up to 5 hours of listening time on the earbuds and up to 20 hours of listening time with the charge case.
As a teen growing up in the 90's, one of my favorite games was Scattergories. I played it pretty often with my siblings and now enjoy playing it with my own kids.
Now there’s a new twist on the game! Each player controls their own set of colored stacking pieces. Lay out the Letter Cards, flip a Category Card and the one-minute timer and the game is on! Players, playing simultaneously, shout out words that fit the category and place one of their stacking pieces on the corresponding letter card. When time’s up, the player who has their colored stacking piece on the top of the stack scores for that card. The more pieces under their piece, the higher the score!
If she's a Harry Potter fan, she will love this Hermione Granger Artifact Box from the Noble Collection!
This set includes Love Potion Bottle, Yule Ball Snowflake Ornament, School Timetable, Owl Exam Paper, Yule Ball Poster, Gilderoy Lockhart Signed Photo and Hogwarts Express Ticket. Box measures approx 8 x 11 inches.
If she's a big Harry Potter fan, make sure you check our Harry Potter Gifts post for even more ideas!
These ballet flats from Yosi Amra are perfect for her to dress up a pair of jeans or pair with a dress. My daughter has this pair of shoes and wears them often with her dresses for church. She loves them and your 13-year-old will love them too!
I don't know what it is about women and crime, but nearly every lady I know enjoys watching true crime documentaries! And, while a board game is certainly not the same thing, I have fond memories of playing Clue when I was a teenage girl! It was so fun to try to figure out the crime before my opponents!
Fans of the classic game Clue will love this exciting, more challenging version! It has more murder suspects, more weapons, and more locations for added fun!
I see so many things here that my 13-year-old daughter would absolutely love! The Home Pro Electric Shaved Ice Machine would be a lot of fun to have. Her Birthday is in May so this would actually be the perfect gift for that! She is also very artistic, so I love getting her craft kits. Thank you so much for all of the great ideas!
