I wouldn’t know this because I was an angel (JUST KIDDING) but teenagers can be a little difficult. In all seriousness, I was really close with my parents and relatively well-behaved, as were my friends. And now that I’m older I have some friend who have kids and some approaching their teen years. I feel like being a teenager now is especially difficult with the onslaught of social media everywhere telling them how to look, where to shop, and how fast to grow up.

Finding the right presents for a teenage girl can be a real hassle. In most instances, they will pretend to feel less than thrilled with anything you purchase because you’re “old and uncool.” Still, some gifts always go down well, and you’ll find some fantastic suggestions on this page.  Now is the time to consider her newfound maturity and ensure you don’t make the mistake of buying something childish for their special occasion.

Of course, you don’t have to choose any of the items mentioned in this article. They are just here to offer some inspiration and point you in the right direction.

Buy some theater tickets

If she loves the arts, it might make sense for you to purchase some tickets to see a show at the theater. Some of the best Broadway theatre productions at the moment include:

  • The Book of Mormon
  • Dear Evan Hansen
  • Hamilton
  • Hello Dolly!
  • Anastasia

However, there are lots more shows you might like to consider, and nothing is wrong with choosing a production by a local theater company. Sometimes that’s easier as you don’t have to make travel arrangements.

Book a weekend city break

Taking her away for the weekend is a fantastic move if you want to treat her for her birthday. You could stay in the US or brave a trip to Europe if you have enough cash to spend and you don’t mind traveling on a plane. Some of the most popular cities for breaks in the US include:

If you want to travel further afield, you might consider some of the following locations on the European continent:

  • London
  • Berlin
  • Milan
  • Barcelona

The decision is up to you, but people who visit those places tend to have an excellent time as there are lots of sights and attractions. Just be sure to make the arrangements a couple of months in advance or at the last minute for the best prices.

Get some luxury jewelry

Lots of teenagers want to look like adults, and that’s why you’ve probably spent a lot of money on designer clothing labels during the last couple of years. While some parents don’t want their kids to wear makeup until they’re older, most people have no issues when it comes to jewelry. So, take a look online and check out some of the most popular suppliers and specialists. Maybe she would like a thick gold choker or something with a little more bling? Perhaps she would enjoy something a little more elegant like a diamond ankle bracelet? Just shop around and see what you can find! Also, if you buy from mainstream jewelry companies, be sure to search for discount deals and coupons because sometimes they help you to save a fortune on the purchase price.

Give her a makeover

By the time most girls reach the age of thirteen, they have the minds of young adults. That often means that she will start to wear makeup long before they learn how to apply it correctly. If you’ve spent many mornings lecturing your bundle of joy about the state of her eyebrows, maybe she would benefit from a professional makeover? Specialists who undertake procedures of that nature will know how to make her look as beautiful as possible. If you want to find the best experts in your local area, just:

  • Search Google
  • Ask for recommendations on social media
  • Speak to any friends who recently got married

The latter suggestion is handy because most brides-to-be will spend a long time searching for the best makeup artist in the area. So, you could save yourself a lot of time if you know someone who’s just started their married life.

Invest in a new outfit

Buying clothing for a teen girl is somewhat of a minefield, and for that reason, you should always involve her in the process. However, you don’t want to remove the element of surprise from your birthday gift. So, visit stores in your hometown or search online for the best fashion brands. Ask your loved one to pick out a few different outfits she likes so you can choose from her shortlist. Failure to do that could mean you have an unhappy teenager on your hands when the big day arrives. Some of the best-selling fashion brands at the moment include:

  • Prada
  • Gucci
  • Burberry
  • Louis Vuitton
  • Dolce and Gabbana

Purchase some concert tickets

Does she love one music artist more than any other? Is her bedroom covered from wall to wall in Justin Bieber posters? Then it stands to reason that your not so little girl is going to love some concert tickets. Here are some of the most significant artists and bands performing live in the US this year:

  • Pink
  • Lauren Hill
  • Lady Gaga
  • Blink 182
  • Green Day

Pay for a driving experience

One of the most critical milestones in a person’s life is when they pass their driving test and get their license. Maybe you could give her a taste of what she can expect when she starts the learning process? There are many gift packages available that feature driving experiences and most of them are not going to break the bank. The best thing about that idea is that she will get to spend time in a luxurious vehicle and benefit from the guidance of an expert. With a bit of luck, the process will encourage her to pass that test as quickly as possible when the time comes. Just be sure to:

  • Check age limits and restrictions
  • Select a vehicle she will enjoy
  • Ride in the back and try not to have a panic attack

Consider a spa day

Sometimes everyone likes to relax at a spa. Spa resorts are excellent because they help people to unwind and feel rejuvenated. So, conduct some online research until you identify the most suitable establishment in your city. Read some reviews by other customers to ensure the company offers the services you require. Some spas even offer overnight accommodation, and so it’s possible to turn the expedition into a weekend adventure if that idea appeals to you both.

Romantic Dinner For Two

When was the last time you took her out to a top restaurant? Women love to eat out. They love having a reason to dress up really fancy! You could even take this idea a step further by going to the shops and choosing her a stunning dress (that she’ll adore), and even a new pair of shoes if you’re feeling extra awesome. Lay them out on the bed, along with a note telling her to put these on and be ready at 8pm. This will fill her up with so much excitement and it’ll be a great start to the evening!

Out To The Theater

If she likes the performing arts, then she’ll love a trip to the theater. Have a look at what plays are on and decide what she’d prefer. This is another good excuse for her to dress up. Go that extra step and get the best seat in the house. When the intervals start, make sure she has all the snacks and beverages she wants.

Relaxing Spa Day

Whether you want to get her a massage, a facial, a manicure or even treat her to one of the many wonderful spa packages, she is bound to feel like a princess. Allow her to bathe in the clearwater spas as she waits for another one of her special treatments. This will make a lovely gift, especially if she is always on the move, and never has time to take out for herself.

Dance The Night Away

Does she love to dance? If she does, then she would love this. Have a look in your area where they have a couples dance night. (Not the clubbing kind of dancing!) Sometimes they hold salsa nights, tango or waltz. This is a fun way for you both to loosen up a little and be silly. You don’t have to be the next John Travolta to do this, so there’s no excuse!

Ride Away To Paradise

If she has a love for animals, then horseback riding is a winner. Can you imagine riding away on your horses in the middle of a flower-filled meadow, or a sandy white beach next to the crystal blue ocean, watching the sunset? You can’t get more romantic than that. You could even take a break and have a picnic prepared with a bottle of something nice and even a few candles to set the scene.

Whatever you end up choosing, just know that it is the thought that counts. As long as she sees the effort that you’ve put in, she will love it. Even if it’s just a simple night in with movies and delicious takeout!
