Gift Guide For Tween Girls

This post does contain affiliate links which means if you click on a link and purchase something, I get a small amount. Like miniscule. But with enough clicks and purchases, I can buy a book! 


It can be difficult shopping for a tween girl. They still sort of like toys. But they sort of don't. They're on that strange cusp of being a young adult while still being a little girl.



While I used to wrap Barbies, baby dolls, and Disney Princess stuff, I find now things are changing.



Now she wants PopSockets, JoJo's Bows, and other odd things that I'm still trying to figure out. (Remember fidget spinners?)


I made a list of things that I will truly be putting under the tree for my daughter.








1. A Marquee Light Box from Justice!



Kids can make their own messages. I can imagine Natalie will leave me ones like, "Please knock first," or, more blunt, "Stop bugging me." Justice has so many fabulous things for tweens! My daughter also loves their stuffed animal collection:








2. Shopkins.



My daughter has so many of these. When she first started getting into them, I didn't know what exactly they were. I'm still not understanding the point and I still find them all over the house. But she has fun with them!



3. A Selfie Snap.


Natalie is big on taking photos of herself. Plus she loves watching YouTube. With this, she can take photos with her phone with a press of a button.



4. Little Live Pets.


Natalie has tons of these and they're pretty cute. She's been wanting a bird, so I got this. That way if the cats attack it, there won't be tears.



5. Num Noms.



These are weird characters that smell nice. I don't really understand these either. But she wanted one in a jar. I know. I'm baffled too. What exactly is she going to do with it?



6. LOL Surprise



This is pretty popular with kids. My daughter loves these LOL Dolls. You unwrap different parts and in the middle is a doll. She's had others before:


I have a feeling I'm going to be irritated to find pieces of LOL dolls all over the house, but it makes her happy.



7. Oonies.


You can make you own balloon animals apparently. My daughter hasn't tried this yet, so I hope it works well. It looks small enough that the machine thingy won't take up so much space, which is a plus for me.



8. Slime stuff.


They have slime kits now, or you can just stick glue in their stockings and they'll know what it's for. I promise you.


9. Fingerlings. 


I recently did an honest review on my blog. My daughter shares her thoughts on these. Would she have put one on her list? No. But I know lots of kids want one.



So there you have it. Gifts for a tween girl. I know in a few years it'll be all about makeup, phones, and clothes and wanting to go to concerts where the latest boy bands are singing and gyrating in a horrifying manner.




Help me.
