The Best Gifts for 14-Year-Old Girls
Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case
If your child already uses Apple products, they are going to love adding these Apple AirPods to what they already have.
Setting up and connecting these AirPods to other Apple products is quick and easy to do. When you want to use them, take them out of the case and they will automatically connect to your product(s). Once you’re done or when the AirPods need charging, simply put them back into the case – it’s that easy!
A super cool feature of these AirPods is that they recognize when they are no longer in your ear. If you pull them out or they accidentally fall out, the pods automatically pause whatever you were listening to.

Take a bare wall to a trendy wall with these remote string lights. This would be a great gift for a teen who has a digital camera! You can pick from 11 available string lights options when purchasing. You’ll need 3 AA batteries with this gift as the batteries are not included.

Your teen girl can enjoy a professional-like nail salon at home with the Gel Polish Starter Kit with UV Light.

YETI Rambler 20 oz Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumbler
YETI Rambler 20 oz Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumblers are popular for a reason: because they work! But why does a teenager need one?

This water cup offers double-walled stainless steel vacuum insulation so drinks can stay hot or cold for hours and hours. The lid uses magnets to open and close for easy use and its shatterproof. Using a water cup like this one helps the earth, too, as you create less waste with plastic water bottles.

In addition, each week starts off with an inspirational quote to read.
A great part of this gratitude journal is that it’s simple. Your 14-year-old won’t feel pressured to read a bunch of blurbs (in addition to what she already has to read for school), but instead, will get to simply focus on what she’s grateful for each day and each week as a whole. Purchase it in paperback or spiral-bound.

Popular Handicrafts Gold Mandala Wall Art
Out with the cute woodland creature decor and in with the new teen bohemian decor. The Popular Handicrafts Gold Mandala Wall Art lets teens revamp their room so they can be cool with their friends. Pick her favorite color from white and gold, teal and blue, silver and gold, maroon, or blue.
The wall art fabric comes in several sizes to accommodate any wall size. The more wall space you cover with this beautiful mandala design, the less room she has to cover her wall in posters showing Stranger Things or boys. Learn to pick your battles… a mandala may seem very esoteric, but is really rather generic.
Made of 100% cotton, hand wash the fabric and hang to dry. Your girl can decorate with this wall art for years or use it as a curtain, bedspread, picnic blanket, or even a room divider. It’s an affordable way to update a girl’s bedroom.
Honest Beauty Eyeshadow Palette
Some girls love makeup and as parents, I’m assuming many of us would rather our girls wear makeup with clean and safe ingredients than not. If this is what you’re thinking too, consider Honest Beauty’s Eyeshadow Palette. The full palette includes 10 powder shades with a variety of finishes (matte, shimmer, satin), to really create any day or night look.
But the best part of this eyeshadow palette is that each shade is high-quality and safe to wear. Without parabens, talc, silicones, and more, these shadows are also hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested. A shadow brush is not included but a step-by-step guide for applying the shadows is.

Perfect for that unwashed hair when you need a quick pick-me-up! There’s quite a bit of variety with this iron too; depending on how long it’s held on the hair, your 14-year-old can have a hard curl look or a light crimped hair look.
This 13.8″ x 3.9″ curling iron is quite large and a bit awkward to hold, but the results are wonderful. It heats up quickly and the cord has been designed in a way that keeps it from spiraling and twisting up.

Now they can create their magical world and color it into their specifications. For a great price, teens can learn important drawing techniques and attention to detail.
Apple iPad Pro
If you do not have an iPad Pro in the house, some other tools like the Apple Pencil will not be as beneficial. The 2020 Apple iPad Pro offers a powerful portable computer with tons of storage space for creative apps. Teens who want to draw with a pencil will love 11 inches of drawing space.
Of course, drawing is not the only application for an iPad. From watching movies to reading books or playing games, this tablet creates a virtual world for teenagers. It can be used for school, recreation, or hobbies.

The bracelet is made of surgical grade 316L stainless steel, so it is strong and durable. Because of its silver material, the bracelet should never rust or turn skin green when its properly taken care of, making it a high-quality gift to give.
One of the great things about this bracelet is that you don’t need to know what size wrist your giftee has. These bracelets can be adjusted to fit most wrists over 13 years old.

Your teen won’t want to get out of this Hammock Chair from Y-STOP! The modern chic design with tassels is super cute! Within the chair is a side pocket for placing books, a phone, pens, etc. Safely secure the hammock (with the included installation accessories) in her room for a little R&R area.

Milestones for 14-Year-Old Girls
Early teens are headed towards adulthood, but still in middle school or their first year of high school and find the road long and annoying. They fix the long boring path by rebelling and hanging out with the wrong crowd. Try to guide your kids toward a successful future by knowing what milestones they should be hitting.
Teens’ emotions run all over the map. Fourteen-year-old girls tend to find most everything embarrassing, especially anything their parents do. Self-esteem is the biggest obstacle at this age. Girls begin to realize how little they know and how long they have to learn what they need to learn.
Help them by offering small compliments and providing means for self-expression. Otherwise, they may be generally happy until you say something uncool like “basic,” “extra,” or “mic drop.” Do not make the hand movement of dropping a mic in their presence either, as you are basically telling them to curl up and die.
The biggest milestone of the emerging independence of teens is the lack of confiding in parents. Nope. Mom is out and best friends are in. Also, girls are starting to notice boys if they haven’t already at 14-years-old.
With their self-esteem on the emotional front, they anxiously want to be liked by their peers. They want lots of friends and less time at home. Make sure to monitor their friendships for bad influences.
By fourteen, your child should be setting goals and achieving personal challenges. Of course, some of those goals may rotate around video games and making rap songs. They are also ready to challenge every word out of an adult’s mouth, too.
This isn’t going to change from this point on until they have a kid of their own and realize how little they actually know. The best you can do is help them to set goals. Focus on goals geared toward future development.
Fourteen-year-olds are in the age of full-blown puberty. Girls have breasts and periods and have to shave. Boys are having dreams and their voice has deepened. The biggest obstacle at this age is keeping clothes that fit your teen.
Monitor your teen, as some find sex much more fascinating at a younger age. Girls especially need monitoring as their bodies are developing and they may want to show off all their new curves. Make sure you keep tons of healthy snacks on hand for growing kids.
FAQs about Gifts for 14-Year-Old Girls
How much screen time should my 14-year-old get?
Most teenagers spend all day looking at electronics, as a lot of their schoolwork and favorite past times are digital now. The best you can hope for is to encourage your child to spend time outside and to get off electronics an hour before bed, if at all possible.
The other method of reducing screen time to under 8 hours is to sign them up for sports or block their access to the internet. Even then, they manage to find ways to sneak electronics, if only to listen to music. Try to get screen time closer to 5-6 hours if possible. The best gifts for 14-year-old girls provide for healthy screen time or a break from screen time.
How much money should I spend on a 14-year-old for a birthday or holiday?
Each family’s budget is different and there is no way to accurately gauge how much to spend on a child for a birthday or holiday. I can tell you what my family does.
For birthdays, they get a party every other year. The party is their main gift and costs about $200 or a little more if we hold the party at an event. They get a small gift under $50 to go with the party. For the years when they do not get a party, we spend about $100 to $200 on a gift. Usually, this is on something that needs replacing like an iPad or a game console or computer.
For holidays, we spend around $300 per kid. That includes a big present, stocking stuffers, and a Christmas Eve gift, which is always pajamas and a book. Sometimes, instead of a big gift, we buy around three smaller gifts instead. We have such a large family that the kids get tons of presents under the tree and I rarely feel like I need to stuff in more boxes.
Mind you, I shop year-round and find stuff on sale. So for me, the value is often more than I spent. Each family is different but I do suggest you do not go into massive debt for a single holiday unless you are traveling far away to Switzerland for skiing or something similar.
If you need gift ideas for your other children we have lists for every age child from 1-years-old and up!
Do 14-year-old girls still play with Barbies?
They used to, but not anymore. Most girls are so self-conscious that even if they still want to play with dolls or other toys, they won’t because their friends might find out. Not to mention the draw of electronics and virtual reality is far more fascinating than all the hard work of playing with a doll.
If your daughter does still want to play with Barbies at 14, let her. There is absolutely nothing wrong with prolonging pretend play. That is essentially what computer games are anyways. Just be sure not to mention her enjoyment of Barbies to anyone outside of the house and make sure her siblings respect her privacy, too.
