1. Cat Crimes – Tweens around my neighborhood love this game. Cat Crimes is a super cute yet challenging logic game that can be played alone or with friends. Gets progressively harder.


2. Ripstick – Our whole street of boy and girl tweens ride up and down the sidewalks and driveways after school on their Ripsticks. Such great exercise and reason to get outside! The mom in me has to suggest investing in a helmet and pads, too. 😉


3. American Girl Baking: Recipes for Cookies, Cupcakes, and More – My 11-year-old is obsessed with this cookbook! All of American Girl cookbooks are extremely well written, photographed, and designed. Your tween may also like American Girl Cooking.


4. Hydroflask – This is not just any water bottle. No, no, this is THE most popular water bottle right now in our middle school. Your tween is sure to love it. And, hey, I’m all for getting my kid to drink more water. 🙂 Check out the various designs and colors.


5. My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook – Does your tween girl have some crazy inventions up her sleeve?! This book is jam-packed with amazing drawings showing all sorts of real inventions that seem too weird to work. There is plenty of inspiration to get kids’ minds going, and plenty of room to add their own crazy inventions to the mix.


6. Gift Bag of Scrunchies – Why hello, scrunchies. It’s been a while! (Believe it or not, the hottest hair accessory from my Junior High days is back.) Here’s a cute bundle of scrunchies of every color and pattern a tween girl could ever want.


7. Gel Pens Set + Blank Journals – How much fun could your tween have using this giant set of colorful gel pens? Whether it’s writing letters to friends or sketching in one of these journals, she will get her use out of them. I love these blank journals, so she can decorate the front covers.


8. Gold Initials Heart Necklace – This dainty gold necklace can be personalized with her initial. Great stocking stuffer or add-on gift.


9. Cute Tote Bag – Whether it’s art supplies, books, or a water bottle and snacks, your tween girl will love this adorable tote bag that’s just her size.


10. Ninja Personal Blender – How cool is this? An easy-to-use, small blender that your tween can use to make her own smoothies and milkshakes. Download and print off our 7 Smoothie Recipes here to include with this gift. Our tween neighbor got this last year for her birthday and uses it daily!


11. Colorku – My tween is obsessed with this game, but it’s really great for all ages. Instead of using numbers to solve Sudoku puzzles, Colorku uses brightly colored wooden balls. The solid wood game board includes 81 balls in 9 different colors, 104 puzzle cards, solutions booklet, color conversion card and storage tray. There are 5 levels of difficulty.


More Ideas:

Books: Here are a few great book series ideas for Tween girls. I’ve listed them from younger to older age-appropriateness.

Lego Friends are still super popular with many girls in this age range.

Bible: Snag a cute, age-appropriate Bible from this list of Children’s Bibles or this list of Tween and Teen Bibles. My 11-year-old daughter uses this Bible the most.
