- Gifts for babies and kids

Between the ages of 9 and 12, children start to outgrow their little-kid personas and move on to more-grown-up interests. These so-called tweens are often developing first crushes, taking more interest in their appearance, following social media personalities, and growing increasingly independent. But they still harbor a fondness for things that are fun and silly (even “babyish”), as well. “[Tweens] present like they’re mature, but they still like kid stuff,” said Catherine Pearlman, a parenting adviser, author, and a mother of two teenagers. “They’re a mix of wanting to be grown up and thinking they can handle everything, but also still learning.”
Even if they don’t readily show their gratitude, tweens are likely to appreciate a thoughtful gift—one that acknowledges that, while they now have more mature interests, they still love to have fun. With the help of Pearlman and other toy and child development experts, as well as the collective experience of parents and caregivers on our staff, we gathered gift ideas geared toward inspiring and intriguing tweens. Room decor such as lights and posters can help them establish a space that reflects their evolving interests and identity. Age-appropriate cosmetics and beauty accessories let them experiment with new looks and styles. Adult-size tools allow them to tackle grown-up projects like baking and woodworking.
Some of our other guides might help if your tween already has a good idea of what they like. If you have a gaming enthusiast, check out our gaming guides to find the best Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite accessories and the best gaming headsets. Athletes may appreciate something from our health and fitness guides, like a yoga mat or a fitness tracker. Got an almost-tween or almost-teen? We have guides to the best gifts for 9-year-olds, 10-year-olds, and teens that offer more ideas. If you’re looking for additional ideas, check out our guides to the best gifts for 1-year-olds, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, 4-year-olds, 5-year-olds, 6-year-olds, 7-year-olds, and 8-year-olds, as well as fun stocking stuffers for kids. (As always, please keep in mind that kids vary widely in their personalities, interests, and development, so we advise that you take these age recommendations with a grain of salt. And please share your own best ideas in the comments below.)
Silly? Absolutely. But PetPartyCo’s customized socks are fun, adorable, and irresistible—especially to a tween who loves animals. Plenty of online stores offer personalized paraphernalia emblazoned with the beloved face of a favorite pet or person, but we found PetPartyCo’s shop very easy to use, and it has more than a thousand satisfied customer testimonials. You can choose from five size options and more than 50 color and pattern choices (all in a nylon/poly-blend), and PetPartyCo lets you add up to three different faces per customized pair.
A DIY nail kit
When a trip to the nail salon isn’t in the cards, outfit your manicure-loving tween with some of our favorite polishes and accessories for at-home manis and pedis. Start with the Teenitor Nail Buffer Block or the Star Nail Sani-Block for buffing, followed by a base coat like Essie First Base. For eye-catching colors and an easy-to-use brush, check out JINsoon’s line of nail polishes—hues like Fab (multicolored speckles) and Bijou (a cascade of gold) are particularly fun. Another favorite, Essie’s Gel Couture applies like regular nail polish but has the shiny and long-lasting consistency of a gel formula. Finally, seal the look with a formidable top coat like Seche Vite’s Dry Fast Top Coat. Tuck everything into a bag for giving—we like the clear, 1-quart Lermende TSA-Approved Toiletry Bag, which is sold in packs of three and comes in a variety of accent colors.

A portable Bluetooth speaker lets music-loving tweens amplify their favorite tunes wherever they are. The Tribit XSound Go (our budget pick) has a full, clear sound, and it outperforms other speakers in its price range. Compact and waterproof, it’s also easy to slip into a backpack and tote to a friend’s house—or to just enjoy using at home. Offering a louder, fuller sound, the stylish Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 is our all-around top pick. About the size and weight of an apple, the Wonderboom is also the most rugged (and waterproof) speaker we tested, surviving a 5-foot drop onto concrete with barely a scratch.
Charming sheet masks
When my animal-obsessed daughter received a pack of Epielle Character Sheet Masks as a gift, she couldn’t help but giggle. Though we can’t say for sure whether the masks (made by a beauty brand from South Korea) purified or nourished our skin (as the label promises), the silly animal prints—llama, otter, panda, mermaid, cheetah, and unicorn—thoroughly entertained us, and the sheets felt cool and soft on our faces. (Read more about what we think of sheet masks in general.) Epielle also offers another set of sheet masks featuring different prints: Dalmatian, mermaid scales, zebra, cat, blue narwhal, and pink shark.

My kids have always liked to borrow my sunglasses, the large frames overwhelming their tiny faces. Now that they’re older and nearing adult size, they’re ready for a nice (but not too nice) pair of their own. Goodr’s The OGs, one of our picks for the best cheap sunglasses, are comfortable to wear, durable, and versatile. Complementing a variety of face shapes, they look a lot like the classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer but cost a fraction of the price. Similarly, the Sungait Vintage Round Sunglasses call to mind the Ray-Ban Erika, but they’re one of the least expensive pairs we recommend. Bonus: They come with a lifetime warranty that covers accidental breaks.
Whether your tween has just a couple of piercings or is on the way to full-fledged earscaping (where bits of bling are stacked from the lobes up to the cartilage), they’re likely to appreciate a membership to the Rowan Earring Club. Each month (the subscription is also available in three- or six-month prepaid installments), your tween will receive a new pair. (You pick whether they come in sterling silver or gold-plated, but other than that, the designs are a surprise.) All of the earrings are hypoallergenic—so they’re free of nickel, brass, and zinc—and they can be left in during showers without fear of turning anyone’s skin green. If your tween hasn’t gotten pierced yet but wants to take the plunge, you can add to the gift by making an appointment to go together. Rowan has studio locations across the country and at select Target stores, and its piercings are done by registered nurses only.

Putting a personal spin on their stuff is a dream for many tweens. Customizing a pair of Classic Slip-On Vans is a fun way to do that. The virtual customizer on the company’s website is interactive and fun, allowing your kid to add, say, a pattern to the vamp, a lightning bolt to the sidewall, or an accent color to the gore. (It’s as much an exercise in shoe anatomy as it is in DIY design.) Design elements include solid colors and various materials (maybe magenta suede or perforated white leather). The nearly 90 pattern options range from variations on the classic Vans checkerboard motif to florals to Stranger Things. Prices vary depending on the elements picked; uploading a personal photo, for instance, costs $20 more. If the Slip-On isn’t your tween’s style, other Vans—like the lace-up Old Skool and high-top SK8-Hi—are also available for customization. Depending on your tween’s shoe size, choose from adult, kids (size 3½ kids and up), or little kids (size 10½ to 3 kids) ranges.
A well-curated book club

The Book Drop (from about $14 for one month, plus shipping, at the time of publication)
As a tween whose nose was always stuck in a book, I would have relished receiving a membership to The Book Drop, one of Wirecutter’s favorite book subscription boxes for adults and kids. The Book Drop, which is run by an independent bookshop in Delaware, delivers a surprise paperback each month. The middle-grade subscription—available on a month-to-month basis as well as in three-, six-, or 12-month prepaid commitments—targets readers ages 8 through 12. The picks, selected by bookstore staff, are usually titles from indie publishers, rather than the big names that typically populate best-seller lists. (The Book Drop made a recent commitment to feature more-diverse books, too.) Past selections include Lisa Moore Ramée’s A Good Kind of Trouble and Linda Sue Park’s Forest of Wonders (the first in the author’s Wing & Claw fantasy series). Advanced readers can opt for the young adult subscription, meant for teens 13 and older, though the picks may include more-mature themes.
An Instagram-worthy wall sign
Inspiring scratch-off posters

Pop Chart Scratch-Off Prints (from $25 at the time of publication)
When it comes to wall decoration, scratch-off posters add an extra layer of fun, offering a way to track all of the destinations a tween has visited, along with the ones they look forward to checking off their list in the future. We think Pop Chart’s Scratch-Off Prints are particularly artistic and charming. Sports fans can begin a quest to visit all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums or 29 basketball arenas, while outdoors enthusiasts can make plans to check out 62 national parks, from the Grand Canyon to Michigan’s Isle Royale. (The Every Kid Outdoors program gives fourth-graders and their families a free one-year pass to more than 2,000 federal parks and water sites.) It’s exciting to scrape off each square like a lottery ticket—but if your tween is feeling impatient, they can uncover them all and enjoy a lovely poster.
They scream for ice cream
Photo: Sarah Kobos
Even the most discerning tweens are likely to melt at the sight of a box of ice cream appearing on their doorstep. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams—a pick in our guide to the best gift baskets—arrives packaged with dry ice (cue the “oohs” and “aahs”) and comes in a slew of unique, extra-rich flavors such as wildberry lavender and pineapple upside down cake. (You can order one of several prepackaged collections or select your own flavor combos.) Want to sample the wares before you pick? Find out where Jeni’s is available at a store near you—all in the spirit of altruism, of course.
A boredom-busting craft box
My 10-year-old loves a good project—and she can handle it all on her own, thank you very much. Just like its subscriptions for younger kids, KiwiCo’s craft boxes for tweens and teens come with everything they’ll need to put a project together (which is one of the reasons it’s our current pick for the best kids craft subscription boxes). You can choose from four styles, depending on your tween’s interests and skill level: Doodle (art and creativity, ages 9 through 16), Tinker (STEM projects, ages 9 through 16), Eureka (science and engineering, ages 14 and up), and Maker (art and design, ages 14 and up). If you don’t want to commit to a subscription, individual boxes and packs of three or five kits are also available. Not all the boxes hit it out of the park, but KiwiCo’s crates use higher-quality materials compared with those I’ve purchased at big-box retailers, and they’re infused with thought and creativity. For instance, the Electric Pencil Sharpener (one of the Eureka Crate projects, meant for ages 14 and up, mostly because there are lots of small pieces) includes a booklet with a behind-the-scenes look at how the sharpener was designed, the science of switches and circuits, and the history of pencil sharpeners and pencils. The finished product now sits on our school-supply shelf and gets used regularly.
An enchanted lipstick
Photo: Lipstick Queen
As the name implies, Lipstick Queen Frog Prince Lipstick comes out of the tube in a dark shade of green but—like magic—appears on your lips in a rosy pink hue. The fairy-tale-inspired, color-changing formula makes an entertaining gift for tweens with a burgeoning interest in beauty products, and it’s one in a series of “shade shifting” lipsticks. As a parent, I appreciate how it moisturizes the lips and reads more balm-like than a classic matte lipstick (the ingredients include shea butter and sunflower seed oil). I also appreciate the sheer, subtle, flattering hint of color it adds. In fact, I liked this lipstick so much, I bought one for myself, too.
A starter set of tools
Equip tweens who like to build with the beginnings of a tool kit that can last them for years, if not a lifetime. We find that the Stanley Click ’N’ Connect 2-in-1 Tool Box, one of our picks for the best toolbox, is easy to keep organized. Stock it with essentials, like the sturdy Estwing E3-16C hammer, the reliable and precise Channellock 8WCB (our pick for the best adjustable wrench), or the handy, well-rounded Megapro 211R2C36RD 13-in-1 (our favorite multi-bit screwdriver). If you’re looking for more options, our guide to the best tools and toolbox offers 22 recommendations culled from more than 350 hours of research.
Not quite a purse and smaller than a backpack, fanny packs—also known as hip packs, sling bags, crossbody bags, bum bags and waist packs—have been enjoying an extended moment. They’re especially well suited for tweens and teens, since the accessory is a stylish and convenient way to stash essentials (phone, keys, lip balm) while keeping your hands free (and your bag on you at all times). The JanSport Fifth Avenue Waist Pack—one of the picks in our guide to the best fanny packs—is a lightweight, 2.5-liter nylon-polyester carrier with two zippered pockets and an adjustable belt (so it can be worn crossbody or around the waist). It’s sturdy and durable (with a limited lifetime warranty), reasonably priced, and available in a wide range of solid colors and prints.
A 3D-art maker
Photo: Rozette Rago
Introduce a crafty tween to a new way of creating works of art with a 3D pen (see 3Doodler’s Instagram for examples and inspiration). The design device takes strands of hard plastic (known as filament) and melts them into a gooey string that oozes out of the tip and then solidifies. For beginners age 12 and younger, we recommend the 3Doodler Start. Both the tip and the just-extruded plastic stay cool—which is good news, since we’ve discovered younger kids can’t resist touching and molding the plastic as they create. However, the 3Doodler Start is slower and offers fewer features than most 3D pens. Older tweens—or those who have more experience with 3D art—may prefer the 3Doodler Create+, our top pick for the best 3D pen. We found it provides the best overall experience, with a comfortable grip and two heat settings (and you can purchase additional tip sizes).
A pop-up badminton set
The FBSport Portable Badminton Set is a fun way to motivate kids—or just about anyone—to get outside and move. The lightweight plastic case (slightly larger and longer than a violin case) holds everything you need, including two badminton racquets, two birdies, a net, and poles. The poles snap together easily, transforming the plastic case into the base of the net. My then 11-year-old and her friend put it together on their own and, in minutes, were playing a game of badminton in our backyard. We also brought it on a camping trip and to a friend’s house this summer, for a side of friendly competition.
A page-turner for preteens

Prairie Lotus by Linda Sue Park ($10 at the time of publication)
There are depressingly few children’s books by and about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders—and even fewer that delve into their history. Thankfully, that’s changing. As the parent of Asian American kids, I’m always on the lookout for new offerings, and one standout is Prairie Lotus by Newbery Medal winner Linda Sue Park. (Park sits on the advisory board for the nonprofit We Need Diverse Books and is also the founder of kiBooka, a website that champions children’s books by Korean American and Korean diaspora authors and illustrators.) Set in 1880, Prairie Lotus—which has been compared to Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House series—follows a young Asian American girl named Hanna as she journeys across the American frontier and starts a new life in a railroad town in Dakota Territory. The novel explores pressing issues such as race and prejudice—especially urgent given the spate of anti-Asian violence—in a tale full of adventure, humor, and friendship. For more reading recommendations, check out our guide to antiracist books for kids and teens.
A multitasking mixer

Whenever they have downtime, my kids whip up desserts—and each new creation is more elaborate than the last. They’ve made chocolate cupcakes with melted-marshmallow filling, rainbow shortbread cookies, and even pumpkin-banana dog biscuits (never mind that we don’t have a dog). For each delight, they relied on baking tools they could call their own, chief among them the Cuisinart Power Advantage Plus 9-Speed Hand Mixer (our budget pick for the best hand mixer). Dependable, powerful, and easy to clean, the nine-speed mixer can knock out a bowl of frosting in seven minutes and help your tween prepare any number of delicious treats. A handy storage case makes this tool easy to pack up and put away until the next culinary challenge calls. Already have a mixer? Our recommendations for items to help you win any bake-off include more essential baking tools, such as cake pans and rolling pins.
A foam-filled “bean” bag

During a trip to the mall, our family became enamored with the ultra-sinky, super-soft modern beanbags made by the furniture company Lovesac (known for “sactionals,” Lovesac’s spin on sectional couches). Those humongous seats are incredibly luxurious and cozy but also over-the-top expensive. So began a monthslong quest to find a more affordable alternative, during which we stumbled upon Ultimate Sack. The order felt like a bit of a gamble, but we’ve had the 5000 model with the charcoal faux-fur cover for close to two years now, and it ended up being the perfect gift for our now-10-year-old tween. The no-bean beanbag chair arrived in the mail as an incredibly heavy block of condensed foam (the separate cover is machine washable). Once fluffed up, the shredded foam provides an easily moldable seat that’s perfect for everything from reading to Zoom chats to Minecraft creeper battles. In other words, it has become the most popular seat in the house.

Remind her as she enters her teenage years, that she doesn’t ever have to be perfect for everyone, that it is important for her to just be herself. That is the most beautiful thing she can be!

» Categories » Birthday gifts for 13-year-old girls
At 13, a girl can already be said to be entering the stage of growing up. This is not a small child, but a young girl . Most likely, she already actively uses cosmetics, follows fashion and is a little interested in boys. So for now, she remains a girl only for her parents, and everyone around can see the little lady.
The question: “What present to give?” can be called a burning one. Often parents and relatives come to a standstill, trying to find the answer to it. With teenagers, you can’t guess how things are and what they really want. But the birthday is only once a year and I would like it to be bright and colorful. Fortunately, today the market has a huge selection of gifts that you can buy for a girl of this age.
The best traditional gifts for 13 years old
It can always turn out that you have little time and it will be easier for you to order a gift in advance in order to be in time for the holiday. This category of gifts will definitely appeal to all young ladies, you can’t go wrong here:
- Tablet . It is not necessary to choose the coolest and most sophisticated electronic gadget. On this device, the girl will be able to understand how the tablet works, what it can be used for and what is best to do with it. Just right for a starting base.
- Rollers/skates . For those girls that are for active rest. It will be possible to conquer park paths on roller skates, and ice arenas on brand new skates.
- Fashion bag/backpack . Any girl will tell you that there are never many bags in life.
- Gold or silver jewellery. Chains, pendants, bracelets, earrings. This is a gift for years.
- Thematic watch . Today there is a huge selection of a wide variety of lines that will suit any character.
- Cosmetic set . So you avoid conflicts and even more: you can choose the color scheme for shadows, lip gloss and varnish. By an older age, your princess will already master all the tricks of make-up.
- Player . At the age of 13, girls have a strong passion for popular musical groups. They hang posters in their room and dream of getting to their idols at a concert. Give the opportunity to listen to music without any restrictions at an affordable price.
- Handicraft kit . Many modern children will also be happy to learn knitting, embroidery and weaving with beads. It is also useful for improving fine motor skills and increasing attention to detail.
- Stylish wallet . Put a couple of bills there to increase the value of your present and please the birthday girl even more.
- Wireless headphones . A win-win gift option. In good online stores, you can find the best quality option and arrange fast delivery from any country.
Original gifts for 13 years
For those who want a young lady to pay special attention to him, you will have to think carefully about what kind of gift she would like to receive for a long time and what will hit her in the heart. It should be some mix of fashion and sophistication, elegance and beauty, usefulness and unusualness.
- Disco ball . Mirrored, luminous and in every way a wonderful tool with which you can throw parties and become the star of the whole class.
- Polaroid Camera . Perhaps, in the modern world, such cameras have become a rarity, the more valuable this gift will be for your girl. Instant photos will give her incomparable pleasure.
- Pet . Any parent wants to see that their child is able to make informed decisions. What is the best way to instill in your child a sense of responsibility, if not a pet that requires attention to its person every minute?
- Book . If your girl does not like to read, then she may have come across the wrong books before. Open for her the wonderful world of literature with those works that are not taught in the classroom.
- Hair straightener/electric comb . With such an accessory, she will be able to bring beauty to her head on her own, inventing a variety of hairstyles and styles.
- Set of cosmetic products for face and body care : hair masks, creams and scrubs. You should start taking care of yourself from such a young age. Moreover, it is a pleasant and useful activity.
- Perfume . A delicious aroma will definitely make it clear to the girl that she is already being treated like a real lady.
- Home Planetarium . Thousands of stars above your head to the amazing music of wildlife — an unimaginably realistic illusion from Japanese masters.
Functional gifts for 13 years old
If you are invited to a celebration, then you can choose something cute and funny, but slightly off your budget . Such a gift may be small, but fun and cool.
- Delicious present: fruit marmalade, chocolate assortment, nuts . All girls have a big sweet tooth, so this will definitely please them.
- Smart bracelet . With it, you can measure the pressure or determine the time: it all depends on the specifics.
- Emotional keyboard : instead of a numeric keypad, a block of special keys is installed on the right. Social networks are very important for teenagers today, so a specially adapted keyboard will suit her taste.
- Beautiful phone/tablet case . And if you run out of eyes from the many colors and applications of the covers, then buy two.
- Personal travel journal . Have the girl start making a map of the places she would like to visit one day.

- Pillow toy . Perfectly fit into the interior.
- Kinder Surprise Basket . Greetings from near childhood and the opportunity to collect a collection.
- Interactive moneybox . A great opportunity to start making your own savings.
- Key ring . It may seem that this is a fairly simple present. However, finding a cute keychain is not so easy.

Ideas for a party

- Trip to the water park . Dizzying water races, trampolines and fun music will make this day!
- Horse riding . A couple of lessons with a smart beautiful horse will please a sweet young lady and give her indescribable pleasure.
- Professional photo session . Let your girl feel like a real model.
- Skating rink/aerobics/pool pass .
- Theater/opera/cinema tickets . If a connoisseur of the classics grows in your family, then the opera will be a whole discovery. Well, going to the cinema for the long-awaited premiere will be more fun with a lot of friends and buddies.

I am sure that these gifts will come in handy both for a birthday and for March 8, and the child will receive true pleasure and joy.
