Other Popular & Appropriate Bat Mitzvah Gifts
With all the Jewish gifts & traditions we wrote about above, we forgot one important thing:
Jewish or not, the young Bat Mitzvah is still a teenager. Which means she’s after cool & popular items.
So don’t feel obliged to get her a Jewish/Israel themed gift. Truth is, the simple, popular gifts work just as well, if not better… It’s a perfectly valid option if you don’t know the girl very well or you’re just friends with her parents.
Let’s go over a few appropriate Bat Mitzvah gift suggestions.

This kit of young skin beauty dead-sea products is a wonderful gift for a young woman. The kit comes with a day moisturizer, night replenisher, refreshing cleaning gel, facial mud exfoliator, mud mask, eye cream and mineral body exfoliator.
And don’t forget – it’s a kit of dead-sea products, so it does have a link to Israel after all!
21. Apple iPad Air 2

And with beautiful rose gold design – you get a truly appropriate Bat Mitzvah gift she’ll definitely love.
23. Amazon E-Gift Card
If none of these Bat Mitzvah gift ideas work for you, and you’re still feeling stuck & clueless on what to get the young Bat Mitzvah – don’t worry… There’s one final option: A Bat Mitzvah gift card.
When in doubt, let her go shopping. And when it comes to shopping – Amazon is your safest bet.
The good thing about Amazon’s gift card is that you can set a custom gift card amount – in which case I recommend you get one in multiples of 18, which is a common Jewish tradition.
If you made it this far, allow me to congratulate you.
Chances are you found a great bat mitzvah gift idea for the special young lady.
All that’s left for you is to get the young lady an awesome Bat Mitzvah gift, make her feel special, and tell us which of these gifts you chose for her (and what her response was).
