Best Gifts for a 14 Year Old GirlWhat are the best gifts for a 14 year old girl? When I asked my 14 year old granddaughter, she quickly replied, “Makeup, music, and money.”  I insisted we find gifts that could be wrapped in pretty packages — I am the grandma, and that is my choice.  This page is packed with ideas from both of us, so do keep scrolling.

Makeup for 14 Year old girls — I would be hesitant to buy makeup for a 14 year old without input from the parents, but I do know that the Neutrogena BB Tinted Moisturizer is a perfect light first foundation of sorts.  If my 14 year old daughter or niece or granddaughter requested makeup, the Neutrogena tint would be my choice.  Add a light pink nail polish, a lip gloss and a small makeup case.

Music and money requests are both solved easily with
gift cards.  While gift cards do not come in beautiful packages, the teens really do enjoy having gift cards on hand. The best gift cards for kids this age include movie theaters, music, and local restaurants.
