Are you wondering about gifts for tween girls for Valentine’s Day or another holiday? Tweens are at that awkward stage that is not quite a child but not quite a teenager. They have outgrown the desire to have toys and dolls but aren’t quite at the stage where gifts for older teenage girls would be appropriate. They are usually starting to be interested in makeup and fashion so I put together a list of a few gifts that tween girls on your list might like.

Gifts for Tween Girls
The key when looking for gifts for tween girls is to tone them down a few steps from a gift you’d buy yourself or a teenager. While a tween may enjoy lip gloss, chances are her mother won’t be that impressed if she receives a neon pink or bold red gloss.
Finding a clear gloss or even a flavored lip balm is a much better choice. If you pair it with some cute hair elastics or headbands in funky colors and patterns, chances are you’ll have a great gift for her. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Depending on their taste, a simple necklace, charm bracelet or ring would make a wonderful gift for Valentine’s Day. Of course, traditionally you would purchase jewelry with a heart on it. But, a teddy bear, flowers or pop culture symbol would work just as well.
A full out spa day may be more than you want to spend for a gift, but what about a mani, pedi, or facial day with your favorite tween? If you do not have a spa locally that offers this service, consider having an at-home spa day instead. Or, how about an afternoon painting each other’s nails?
A Sweet Treat
There is nothing wrong with indulging your sweet tooth on Valentine’s Day. How about a heart-shaped box of chocolates, a decorated Valentine’s Day sugar cookie, or conversation hearts. Or, if you prefer, why not schedule a baking day together to make your own Valentine’s Day treat.
Does your tween have a favorite hobby they enjoy? Valentine’s Day is a great time to encourage that. Consider a gift of art supplies, a free pass to a local art class, or a gift certificate to their favorite craft store so they can buy their own supplies.
Lip Gloss or Balm
Depending on your thoughts about beauty products for tweens, they may enjoy getting a package of lip gloss. If you don’t allow lip gloss, you can always get the flavored lip balms instead. Or, you can make your own. I enjoy my chocolate honey lip scrub as a special treat.
