WHY IS THE 13TH BIRTHDAY SPECIAL?
As the mother of 3 girls…two of whom are over 13 years old…I know that girls love celebrating their 13th birthday.
This is the birthday that is the gateway to the teen years. Girls are always so excited to become teenagers.
Some families allow more privileges when kids turn 13 and that is always something to look forward to.
No matter the reason behind it…I am sure your daughter will feel that this is a birthday worth celebrating a little harder than previous years.

PERSONALIZED GIFTS FOR 13TH BIRTHDAY
I am a huge fan of personalized gifts. Whether you are buying personalized gifts for dad on Father's Day or decorating with personalized decor at Christmas….you can't go wrong with a personalized gift.
Here are some ideas that will be well received by almost any 13th year old girl.
- Personalized Phone Cases are very popular and kids love them. Put some of their favorite photos on the phone case and even their name. Be sure to pick their favorite colors.
- Girls love jewelry and personalized jewelry is always in style. Bangle charm bracelets are hot right now and can be added to each year.
- A blanket or pillow with their name on it that matches their room decor is a useful gift that they will love.
- If you are on a tight budget, no worries. How about a personalized makeup bag? It will be a high-five-worthy gift.
- Sometimes personalized gifts don't include a name. Pick out special prints or colors for a custom drink tumbler.
HEARTFELT GIFTS FOR A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL
Everyone loves to receive a gift from the heart, even teens. When you are working to buy a special gift for a 13th birthday try getting a heartfelt gift.
Here are some meaningful, heartfelt gift ideas for the 13th birthday girl.
- A nice journal with a meaningful sentiment on the cover or a handwritten note on the inside cover is a thoughtful gift. I love the etched leather journals.
- Soundwave artwork is something teens would think is cool and touching. Send in an audio file of you speaking a message to your teen. The artist will turn the audio file into artwork. Super cool!
- How about giving messages in a bottle? This is really awesome. The glass bottle comes with tons of small capsules. Inside each capsule is a rolled piece of paper you can write a message on and then put it back in the capsule. Each day your 13-year-old can open a capsule and read your message.
- Give a retro and personal gift of a Reel Viewer. This allows you to make your own reels with photos of your birthday girl. She will love this vintage-style gift.
- A My Life Story journal is a fun way to have your new teen start recording her life story and she can continue to write down memories for years to come.
