If she's into any hobbies or expressed any interest, see about enrolling her in some kind of local athletic or crafting class (like pottery, etc.)? Or, this would depend on her, but when I was 14 (with my naturally curly, terribly unmanageable hair) I would have loved to have been given some salon time/ consultation with a good product for my hair type (I now use Ouidad). Sometimes a pedicure, manicure, etc. could be a special gift if it's not something she does a lot anyway and it's a time for you two to spend together.
A signed book by her favorite author. A gift card to her favorite clothing store. A locket with photos of both her parents, as children, in it. Concert tickets for whatever nauseating crap she's listening to.
OK, this is electric but perhaps a good idea - get her a sewing machine and a few lessons at a Joann's or another fabric store. She can get creative, design her own fashions, and learn a valuable skill.
My teen daughter loves Lush products. They have all kinds of gift boxes for Christmas, starting as low as $14.00. She is now 18 years old, and has put her "Lush" list in to Santa. Her love affair with Lush started when she was around your daughter's age. If you have a Lush store near you I would suggest that you go and check it out. The people there are great, and are more than happy to give you free samples of whatever products you're interested in.
I bought this Through My Eyes: A Journal for Teens for my niece for her 13th birthday last Jan. It's not your typical journal, just read the reviews! After seeing it in person (she actually brought it to our Cabin on vacation this summer) I bought 3 more copies & tucked them away for when my older granddaughters (10 & 8) and another niece (8) become teens. Its that good. :)

Music, books, clothing, jewelry (all dependent on what she's into), something cool for her room (lava lamp, puzzle box, signed print, a comfy chair). Take her to a concert, a play, or the theater. Something she's never done before (skiing, pottery class). A family board game.
I have never responded on a feed here. I barely notice them really. This one caught my eye. I APPLAUD you for thinking out of the box. The more "connected" we are the more "disconnected" we become. I liked a lot of the ideas here. My favorite being doing something one on one with her. Get pedicures, see a play, take her to a nice dinner. Good Luck!
