Birthday Gift Ideas For Tweens


Birthday Gift Ideas For Tweens

Are you looking for the perfect birthday gift for the tween girl in your life? Ever wonder what they are into these days?!  Look no further! I have compiled a list of ten ideas, considering a variety of interests and price ranges. ‘Tweens’ are considered to be young people between the ages of 9-12, who are no longer children, but who are not quite teenagers! This is such a great age, and it’s so much fun to watch their personal interests bloom!  

Stationary, pretty paper and colorful pens – Get those creative juices flowing!  Girls this age enjoy drawing, doodling and writing letters!  Decorative edge scissors, mailing stamps
and washi tape are also fun additions to this type of gift!  This is a wonderful age to instill the importance of sending thank you notes 🙂

Anything personalized – This can be a monogram, first name initial or their entire name!  Personalized journals, jewelry and zipper pouches are very popular items with this age group!

Board/card games – Encourage your tween to step away from the screen and to play a good old fashioned board or card game!  Some favorites incude Monopoly, Beat the Parents, Farkle, Uno and SkipBo!  Family game nights are so much fun!

Bath bombs and nail polish – In case you haven’t noticed, girls this age often start spending more time in the bathroom!  Snag some bright sparkly nail polish and a fun bath bomb and she will be ready to relax!

Gift cards – Girls at this age enjoy shopping and are finally responsible enough to keep up with a gift card!  Find out her favorite store(s), or perhaps consider gifting her with an iTunes card to use toward additional data or music!

Accessories for electronic devices – If the tween in your life handles a cell phone, tablet or laptop, chances are they would love a selfie stick, extra battery charger, new case, phone stand or ear buds! 

Marquee letters or letter board – Gift her with marquee letters to match her name or initial, and it will accent any style of bedroom décor!  Letter boards are the craze right now.  These typically come with the letters, and she can change the saying as often as she wishes!  

Camera – Who doesn’t love to take pictures to hang on the memories?!  A smaller camera, such as the Fujifilm Instax Mini, is perfectly ideal!  Don’t forget the batteries, film and a cute protective case!  

Soft blanket, cute socks or a mermaid tail blanket – Let’s be honest – who wouldn’t love these?!  Tweens love to curl up with the softest blanket to watch a movie!  They also collect cute socks!

DIY Kit – I know, some of you are over the slime, but tweens LOVE it!  If you don’t care for slime, grab a DIY gummy bear or candle kit!  Tweens are super innovative and creative, and would enjoy this very much!
