Best gifts for girls 2019

Buying gifts for tween girls can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be.

By this age, most kids are into some type of activity or have a strong interest in something.

So you would think this makes it easier to find a gift.

Just get them something they need or want having to do with their hobby.

Well, there’s one problem with that….everyone else is doing the same thing.

Bombarding kids and parents with tons of Lego’s or all things baseball can get old.

Grandparents seem to take this to a whole new level.

When our oldest was about 4, we had everything Scooby-Doo you could imagine.  It’s fun for a while but eventually, kids have outgrown or given up most interests.

I like finding a balance between useful, fun, needed and long-lived… if I can.

Here are some of my favorite gift ideas for tween girls.

1. Gift Cards to Do “Stuff”

While this may seem like a cop-out on the shopping side and not a need, I disagree.

For one, as a parent of three kids, it can get expensive taking them fun places.   Because of these cards we have been able to do fun things with the kids even when we couldn’t afford it.

Museums, movies out, Redbox movies in or go out to lunch.    Mini-golf.  Roller skating.  Ice Skating.

When in doubt, how about one of these…

What’s in your area that tweens like to do?

Family fun time is a necessity, and yes, I know there are so many things you can do for free.

But be honest,  we all love to go bowling, or to Chuck E. Cheese, okay well maybe not actually Chuck E. Cheese.   I kinda hate that place.  But everyone looks like the fun parent or the awesome gift-giver when we get to go places we might not normally be able to dish out for.

If you buy gifts for families with more than one kid, get either one big card for everyone or individual cards for each member.

Similarly, if you do store gift cards, getting all the cards at the same store can turn into a family gift. We have pooled together gift cards to get one big family gift. That’s fun too.

2. Life Straw Water Bottle is a must-have gift for on the go tween girls.

This water bottle is not inexpensive but knowing they have safe water is priceless.

If they hike, camp, or play sports this is great because you can refill on the go without worrying about the quality of the water.   Now I know they can fill up whereever they are and it’s all good.

3.  A sleeping bag is a practical, yet still fun gift for tween girls.

This is the time to go big or go home.

Look for sales, look for coupons or go in with someone else.  But get a good one.  Done right, this gift can last a lifetime.

Whether your family camp, your kids get involved in scouts, goes on sleepovers or tents in the backyard.

A good sleeping bag is an awesome thing to have.  While as an adult I still like Tinkerbell, cheap bags are too small and not at all warm.

We have THIS one by Eastern Mountain Sports

We also have another one by Northface bought back around 1995.  It’s still perfect.

 

4.  Kindle Fire is a gift anyone in the family will love.

 All-New Fire 7 Tablet (7All-New Fire 7 Tablet (7

 

We got these last year.  Two of the kids and I have them.  It has saved fights over the TV.  Over Netflix.  Over the computer.  It has kept them busy at doctors offices.  On long car rides.   And have been used during homeschool for learning apps.

While I’m not promoting excessive screen use, these tablets are excellent.  They perform like an expensive tablet, with a nice price tag.  Only $ 49, though we snagged them during Black Friday for $35.

They do offer a kids edition, however, we just have the regular one.  Ours came out before the version with Alexa, so I don’t have any opinion on that.

Regular websites are bit slow, but we don’t use it for that.  Games, apps and even Netflix work great. Though the camera isn’t great, it’s fun for the kids to practice taking photos and videos.

 

Amazon has its own app store, it contains most apps you find on Google Play.

I use mine exclusively for reading.  No need to purchase books, e-books can be “borrowed” from the library.

Grab one of these to go with the Kindle and have one happy tween, well for a while anyway.

5.  A nail art kit is just the thing for those girly girls.

This is a fun kit we just bought.  Trying out all the different tools has been a blast.  My daughter loves being able to try out all the designs she sees on Pinterest or in the e-book that’s included..  With so many options in this 20 piece set that has brushes and dotting pens she can be as creative as she likes.  And with everything in the handy folding case with a magnetic closure it stays all together neatly.  

These cool accessories paired with the nail kit make a nice theme gift.

6. A knitting kit is a present tween girls would love

For a while, this was an outdated hobby.  But boy is it making a come back.  From tweens to millennials to baby boomers, women are getting into knitting and crocheting.

Our local library even has a learn to knit club for 5th-8th graders.

I’ll be honest,

I want to learn but I can’t tell you how many things I have tried that my mind understands but my hands just can’t follow.  Crochet and knitting are two of them.  Maybe this winter I’ll try again.

This is the storage bag we have.

Fill it with yarn and some knitting or crochet needles.

My daughter has these knitting needles.  The two different colors make it easier to follow.

I could never decide on all the beautiful sets, so I just have this basic crochet hook so I could learn and practice.

We also have this round loom set.

A book like this one I have is a great start.

I also like YouTube for tutorials.  Everyone learns differently 😉

7.  Babysitter Business Kit for Tweens
