Tween Girl Gift Guide Picked Out By Actual Tweens

It can be tough shopping for a tween girl. I mean, they don't really like toys anymore. Or if they do like toys, it's SPECIFIC toys. But at the same time, you don't want to get them too many "older" things because they are still kids.

However.

My daughter wrote a Christmas list and she had these on it, so they have been selected from an ACTUAL tween girl. I'm not just guessing here. And if it wasn't on her list, it's items she's expressed interest in. Some items she already has, but I included them for extra ideas.

So here we go! Oh, and I'm proud to say I didn't pay full price for anything. I had a coupon or it was on sale. Or I had both.


First up is Gucci perfume from Kohl's. Natalie has become obsessed with Gucci. She wanted a Gucci belt, but no joke, those things are like $400 and it's NOT happening. So I went with this perfume. It was on sale for $27, which still seemed like an obscene amount to me (she liked another Gucci bottle that was $100 and I was like NOPE!) Anyway. I got her this because it helped me get Kohl's cash.







Natalie has been wanting a hot brush for a while now. I guess it straightens your hair while you brush it? She's more girly than I ever was, so I learn about hair products and makeup through her. I got this one Amazon.






A mini brands ball. You can find these at Walmart, Target, Five Below..you basically get 5 small mini brands. For example, a mini pringles can. I don't get why these are popular, but tweens seem to love them. I'll be doing a blog post about it soon.





You can find a Hydro Flask at many places: the website, Dick's Sporting Goods, REI, Amazon...I got one on sale. Sometimes they go on sale on Amazon as well. You can get stickers from Redbubble. The scrunchies are another want for many tweens--Claire's has a huge collection.






Billie Eilish Merchandise. Target has some as well, but I got this from Hot Topic for 30% off.




Air Pods. Again, I got this from Kohl's and received Kohl's Cash. You can't use coupons towards them, but you CAN earn Kohl's Cash.




A record player, also purchased on sale at Kohl's. (Normally $69 but it went to $39.) Amazon has them as well, and it's the same price that I paid at Kohl's. The record was on sale on Amazon.




Clothes from Justice! Natalie was sent this from Justice since she's a Girls With Heart Ambassador. It's super soft. Join Club Justice and you'll get extra deals.



A Kylie Palette. I got this at Ulta for 30% off on Black Friday. I would not pay full price. $44 for one small palette is silly to me. I'm told that Ulta will sometimes send 20% off coupons that is good towards ANY purchase in December, so I'd join their email list if you want a Kylie Palette. Unless you want to pay $44.



This camera is sort of me as well because I love that the photos are instant. You can also print out photos from your phone on this. I got it on Black Friday at Target. You can also find it on Amazon.




Natalie likes to say "ok boomer" to me, plus she's a fan of the meme cat, so this was a must. I got it from Amazon.






Finally, if you have a Friends fan, I highly recommend this Lego set. I found it on the Lego site. This actually ISN'T for my daughter, who does like Friends, but her brother likes it more. I also found a Friends pen from Hot Topic, and a Friends quiz coaster set that I found at Kohl's. There are questions from the show written on them.






So there you have it! What is your favorite item here? I'd have to say the Friends Lego set for me. I'm already planning on asking my son if I can play with it after it's built, I won't even lie.
