20 Best Tween Girl Gift Ideas

It’s that time of year where you start wracking your brain for gift ideas for those girls that are a bit past baby dolls but not quite adults.  What do you get a tween girl on your list besides just a gift card?  With my daughter’s help, I have rounded up the best 15 tween girl gift ideas for that hard to buy for tween girl on your list.

15 Best Tween Girl Gift Ideas

1.  Hair Accessories

Scrunchies are back and they are the coveted arm accessory.  It takes me back to my youth.  Get a huge variety pack here so your tween girl can have a scrunchie for every occasion.  Also, how about some foam curlers?  This rainbow set is perfect for adding some fun curls.  

2.  Electric Scooter or Hoverboard

Our son got an electric scooter for Christmas last year and it was a fun upgrade from the power wheels of his youth!  Our daughter loves to ride it too.   This hoverboard is the one we have and it’s a great price.

3.  Sherpa Pullover

Sherpa is having a major moment and tween girls love the trend too.  It’s a perfect cozy addition to any tween’s closet. My daughter loves hers.  You can find them everywhere from Walmart to this one on Amazon.

4.  Vivofit Jr. Fitness Tracker

This bracelet-like fitness tracker is perfect for smaller wrists.  It’s also waterproof while collecting steps.  If you want a few more features, try the FitBit Inspire.  I was super skeptical that my kids would use them but both have had them for over a year and love to track their steps and goals!

If your tween girl already has a fitness tracker, get her some new fun bands to switch up the look.

5. DIY Craft Kits

Give them the gift of craft time.  From pottery to friendship bracelets there’s a craft kit for every tween girl on your list.  This DIY window art set is on Vera’s personal wishlist.

6.  Art Cart

I wrote a whole post about how Vera has her art supplies organized in her personal art cart.  3 years later and it remains her favorite gift ever.  She uses it every day!  Read the blog post here and get aa tiered art cart here.


7.  Magna-tiles

If you have not invested in a set of these, you need to!  Across the board, these are our most used toys in the house for any age level.  It’s on every one of my gift guides for a reason.

8.  Duffel Bag

Get your tween girl a duffel bag for practices, slumber parties and trips away from home.  This style has lots of print options and folds away small for storage.

9.  Gel Pens

Gel pens are perfect for creating art, writing in a journal or penning the next great graphic novel.  This set is perfect for a stocking or add-on gift.  These would store away great in the art cart above!

10.  Echo Dot

An echo dot is the perfect wireless speaker for the next impromptu dance party for your tween girl.  It also works great as an intercom when you need to talk to her in her room.

11.  Fuzzy Sock Set

Nothing says cozy like a pair of fuzzy socks.  This animal sock set is perfect and can be mixed and matched for lots of new looks all week long :)!  Split it up and pop them in stockings or give them to your tween girl’s friends with a pair of nail polish.  Get the set here.


12. Bluetooth Wireless Microphone

Get ready for karaoke or American Idol with this Bluetooth wireless microphone.  Not to mention, the built-in lights, it’s a party in your tween girl’s hands!

13. Nail Polish

Who doesn’t love to paint their nails?  Nail polish is the perfect stocking stuffer or addition to a caboodle.  Get an Essie nail polish variety pack here.

14. Caboodle & Lipsmackers

These are both a blast from my youthful past.  My girls both want a caboodle this year and love Lipsmackers as well.  A perfect beauty accessory for every tween girl.  Get a Lipsmackers set here and caboodle here.
