Every girl appreciates a nice piece of jewelry. Not to mention if the jewelry you’re getting her also happens to be unique.
Here’s the problem with Jewelry though: There are a TON of options… where to begin?
No worries, I’ve done the “heavy lifting” for you, and chose some of the best Bat Mitzvah Jewelry gifts out there…

Here’s a riddle:
What happens when you combine a gold Star of David, Shema Yisrael, and a stunning 24K gold necklace with Swarovski crystal?
The answer: you get the ultimate Bat Mitzvah necklace.
What better way to remind the young girl to recite the Shema prayer, now that she’s arrived at the age of Mitzvot, than with the Shema Yisrael prayer, inscribed inside a gold Star of David?
A brilliant piece of Jewish Jewelry any young Jewish woman will be lucky to have.

This is the perfect Bat Mitzvah gift if you want to get the young woman a gift from your heart, to her heart, using a silver heart (that’s a lot of hearts).
Woman of Valor: Gold and Silver Pomegranates Ring
Enough with the necklaces… there are other types of Jewelry gifts for a Bat Mitzvah besides just necklaces.
Like what? Like rings.
But not just any ring… a Woman of Valor (Eishet Chayil) ring.
In Proverbs, King Solomon wrote about the Eishet Chayil:
“She is the Eishet Chayil, the Woman of Valor, who sets the tone of love, spirituality and personal growth for all those around her. To know her is to appreciate her strength and talents…”
If you’re looking for an emotional & unique Bat Mitzvah gift, then this handmade ring, with a 9K gold emblem and a decorative pomegranate – is a great option.

We can’t talk about Bat Mitzvah gift ideas and not mention some good-old Judaica gifts, now can we? (by the way, it’s pronounced “bat mitzvah”, not “bah mitzvah”)
A traditional Bat Mitzvah gift is a meaningful & proper way to symbolize the young girl’s coming of age (Mitzvot).
Thankfully, our Jewish tradition is filled with amazing spiritual themes & Judaica items – making it a natural fit for our young girl’s Bat Mitzvah.
Nadav Art Sterling Silver Kiddush Cup – Good GirlTop Traditional Gift

Cool & Popular Bat Mitzvah Gifts
With all the Jewish Gifts & traditions we wrote about above, we forgot one important thing:
Jewish or not, she’s still a teenager. Which means she wants to have the coolest gadgets around.
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 best friends with her parents.
Let’s go over a few cool & appropriate Bat Mitzvah gift suggestions.
Beats Solo 3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones – Rose GoldTop Popular Gift
Part of being a teenager is listening to a lot of music. And part of listening to music (as a teenager), is to listen in the best quality possible – while looking cool.
You probably realized I’m describing Beats headphones (by Dr. Dre) – hands down, the best headphones available today (and these are wireless too!).
And with a beautiful rose gold design – you get one of the coolest Bat Mitzvah gifts any teenager, Jewish or not, would hope for.
Apple iPad Air 2
Who wouldn’t love an iPad as a gift? This is an exciting gift to get at any age, any gender and on any occasion, which obviously makes it an amazing gift for a bat mitzvah girl.
The Bat Mitzvah’s love & appreciation is guaranteed… (just make sure her parents approve beforehand)
Body Treat: Edom Gift Pack
Our little girl has grown into a young lady. So let’s treat her as such.
Edom’s best-selling Dead Sea mineral gift pack is a terrific way to spoil the young woman with some of Israel’s finest Dead Sea skin & body care products.
This mineral-rich gift pack includes some of Edom’s finest creams, including:
It’s time to give the young lady yet another reason to love Israel.
The best way to do that? Introduce her to some of Israel’s wonderful skincare products.
Trust me, she’ll probably be exhausted after all the dancing & partying… She could use a nice hot bath with these wonderful Dead Sea creams & salts from Israel.
Unique & Creative Bat Mitzvah Gifts
It’s time to open the creative treasure box…
At the age of 12, creativity runs wild… You’re about to nurture it and encourage it even further.
Bat Mitzvah presents can be unique, creative & meaningful all at the same time…so what do you say we find the young Bat Mitzvah girl a gift she simply couldn’t forget, even if she tried really REALLY hard.
Hebrew Letters Women’s Watch by AdiTop Creative Gift
Sure, you can get the young Bat Mitzvah a nice standard watch and call it a day… but this is her Bat Mitzvah we’re talking about here!
I’m afraid to say: a standard watch simply doesn’t do justice with her special day. Besides, it would be nice to give her a watch that actually connects her to her Jewish roots.
So what’s the brilliant solution to this problem? Adi’s Hebrew letters gold watch.
Let’s face it, looking at your wrist and seeing beautiful Hebrew letters covered in gold is kind of exciting… and because the watch is so durable and unique, thanks to you she’ll enjoy looking at the time during her teenage years.
Torah Quote Chalkboard Plaque
I’m guessing the young Bat Mitzvah has some posters of her favorite idol in her room (Justin Bieber? I hope not).
Wouldn’t it be nice to decorate her room with something a little bit more meaningful? Something enlightening… something encouraging, that she’ll be able to see every morning when she wakes up, and every night before she goes to sleep? Something that will guide her through a life filled with love & Torah?
This is definitely one of the best Bat Mitzvah gifts you can get for the young woman.
Dorit Judaica Wall Hanging – Daughter’s Blessing
Dorit Judaica’s gorgeous wall hanging includes probably the most popular verse you can wish any young woman:
“Yasimech Elokim Ke’Sarah, Rivka, Rachel, Ve’leah” (“May G-d make you as Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah.”)
Don’t you wish that for the young Bat Mitzvah?
Imagine the young woman seeing it every morning when she wakes up. Such a wonderful way to start the morning isn’t it?
Custom Sterling Silver Round Locket
This is where classic meets modern. This special sterling silver round locket can feature the Bat Mitzvah’s picture, along with a special customized message of your choice.
You can fully customize the locket with unlimited design options, images, and words that come directly from your heart for our special young lady.
Bat Mitzvah Girl (Woman) T-Shirt
This isn’t a normal birthday party. It’s her damn Bat Mitzvah!
This best-selling bat mitzvah T-shirt delivers that message with a nice touch, and definitely, makes it a proper & funny party gift for a Bat Mitzvah girl.
Bat Mitzvah Gift Cards
Still confused on what Bnot Mitzvah gifts you can get?
Don’t worry, there’s a backup plan…
In case you’re not really familiar with the young Jewish girl, whether she’s your friend’s daughter or a niece you haven’t seen since she was a baby – you can always get her a gift card, and let her buy whatever she wants.
A gift card is actually a proper gift for Bat Mitzvah. Trust me, it’s much better than buying her something she doesn’t want or need.
Forever 21 Gift CardTop Bat Mitzvah Gift Card
You know what they say: When in doubt, go shopping.
OK, no one actually says that… but a lot of 12-year-old girls definitely feel that!
Even though she’s not 21 yet – she’ll definitely love going on a Bat Mitzvah shopping spree!
And with Forever 21’s gift card, she put your gift to good use and be forever grateful (ok maybe not forever, but at least until her next shopping spree).
App Store & iTunes Gift Cards
Kids these days spend most of their time on their phones: Downloading apps, games and all kinds of (addictive) stuff… only for their parents to find out about it on their credit card statement at the end of the month.
With Apple’s gift card, they can enjoy all the App Store has to offer without worrying about their parents scolding them about their lavish app shopping spree!
Nordstrom Gift Card
Why go nuts finding something that fits the young woman, and something she actually likes.
Instead, you can let her do what she actually loves: buy her own favorite clothes.
And where do you buy cool women’s clothes? Nordstrom.
The Nordstrom’s gift card (wrapped in a beautiful gift box), in increments of 18 = a great Bat Mitzvah gift card.
How About Cash?
Ideally, you’d want to give the young Bat Mitzvah an actual gift, rather than cash.
Don’t forget, Bat Mitzvah or not – we’re still talking about a teenager here… what are the odds she’s going to use the money wisely? Chances are she’s going to spend it on foolish things that aren’t all that useful.
When you get her a Bat Mitzvah gift rather than cash, you can get her something meaningful and valuable she’ll actually use.
However, if for some reason you still decided to go the money route, then there are a couple of things you should know:
- You’d want to give her money in multiples of 18. 18 in Judaism means “Chai” (חי) – “Life”. This means you’re blessing the Bat Mitzvah with a long and successful life.
- If you want the Bat Mitzvah to spend it, give her cash, rather than a check. On the flipside, if you’re afraid the Bat Mitzvah will spend it on foolish things, then give her a check – so the money will go to her parents first, and they can decide together with their daughter how to invest the money.
- Don’t go overboard… After all, this isn’t a wedding. Check out this table to figure out exactly how much you money should give her.
If you made it this far, then congratulations!
You must have found some great bat mitzvah gift ideas for the special young lady.
