Are you wondering what to get a 14-year-old for her birthday? If so and if you are fresh out of ideas, you have come to the right place. Granted, finding the right gift for a 14-year-old girl in the UK is no simple task. 14-year-olds are notoriously picky and they seem to be remarkably hard to please.
To come up with the best gift ideas for 14-year-old girls I really had to get my creative juices flowing, but finally, I created a list of gifts that impressed my teenage niece and even her picky girl friends (great success!).
A super-comfortable gift for the girl who craves comfort
At 14 it’s all about comfort. Sure, teenage girls tend to put up with a lot in order to look pretty and cool when in public. But at home, they just want to relax. And an inflatable lounger air sofa will surely get the job done. It’s light and portable, waterproof, and can be used on the beach, in nature, in the backyard, and even in the comfort of her own room. It’s the perfect place to daydream about the boy she likes and talk for hours with her friends.
A cool present for a 14-year-old girl
When I was 14, my friends were my life. We didn’t have smartphones, but we (meaning our parents) did have digital cameras and my friends and I took tons of photos together. We had them developed and decorated our rooms with them. Visiting a photo centre every once in a while to do so was worth it, but I would have loved to have a mini photo printer, which would allow me to print out all the embarrassing photos myself! In my opinion, a mini smartphone photo printer is one of the best gifts for a 14-year-old girl ever (and my niece agrees).
A magical gift that will bring some light into her life
Once all the selfies with friends are taken and printed out, your favourite 14-year-old will need a place to display them proudly. In our days we used adhesive tape, but kids nowadays are way cooler. They use photo clip string lights instead. Photo clip string lights allow them to decorate their rooms with romantic lights as well as their favourite faces, things, and places. As such, they make excellent gifts for 14-year-old girls.
A gift for her and her BFF
If friends are her main priority, she would surely love a friendship bracelet maker kit, which is an amazing teen-approved gift for a 14-year-old female. It is a practical gift that brings many benefits. It would allow her to make her own cool bracelets and wear them proudly, strengthen her bond with her BFF, and nourish her artistic side.
A great gift that will provide music and light
On her priority list, friends are probably closely followed by music. At least that’s the case for most teenage girls. If that is also the case for your beloved 14-year-old, then she will surely love a night light Bluetooth speaker. Those kinds of speakers tend to serve as alarm clocks, dimmable bedside lamps, MP3 music players, and all-in-one Bluetooth speakers.
A fine gift for the active 14-year-old
Inline roller skates are a lot of fun and surely a nice gift for teenage girls of 14. While not many 14-year-olds are into running or hiking, inline roller skating can be so much fun that the girl will forget she is actually exercising. Inline skating provides a fun and moderate workout, plus, it invites company. And if your teen and her BFF are going to hang out for hours anyway, doing so while moving their bodies would be much healthier.
7. Collage Kit
Another wonderful gift to decorate her room
Collage kits are cool and every 14-year-old girl knows it. They offer the opportunity to decorate our rooms with pictures of sweet memories, cute guys, our favourite rock and movie stars, inspirational quotes, and tons of other ‘wicked’ motifs that tend to make our day whenever we see them. Collage kits can also serve as wish boards, which allow us to display our wildest dreams and later on manifest them in real life.
A practical gift for a young woman
A cookbook for teenagers may be the perfect answer to your burning question “What should I get my 14-year-old daughter for her birthday?” It is a practical gift that will impart her lots of practical knowledge and slowly turn her into a young independent woman perfectly capable of taking care of herself. As gaining full autonomy is every teenager’s biggest dream, she will surely love it. A cookbook for teenagers would also make a wonderful gift for a 14-year-old granddaughter.
A cute gift that will make her feel like a woman
14-year-old girls want to look, act, and smell like women. Putting on a wonderfully scented perfume, just like her grown-up mother does, will definitely bring her one step closer to feeling like an adult. It may also help her feel more confident and boost her often fragile self-esteem. As such, a perfume may be both a great Christmas gift for a 14-year-old girl as well as a lovely birthday gift for a 14-year-old girl.
A gift she will be able to enjoy in the company of her friends
My teenage niece informed me that The Best Friend Game is currently ‘the sickest’ board game around. It comes with 250 questions designed to test how well you know your friends and how well they know you. It is simple, hilarious, and provides a wonderful opportunity for your 14-year-old to bond with her friends and get to know them even better.
A lovely gift for the girl who likes plants
Many of our grandparents grew up on farms, near forests, and in close proximity to nature. Kids nowadays, on the other hand, seem very disconnected from nature. Therefore a simple bonsai tree starter kit that will allow her to grow her own bonsai tree, take care of it, learn about the responsibility of caring for another living thing, and reconnect with nature, would make a lovely and educational gift for a 14-year-old girl.
