Tween girls are no longer little kids but they’re not quite teenagers either. As they begin to leave childhood and enter adolescence, they experience many physical and behavioral changes. Their interests change as well, which means you have many new gift options to explore.

Choosing the best gifts for tween girls

Pre-teen girls, or “tweens” are between the stages of childhood and adolescence. While the age range can vary, the tween years are usually from ages 9 to 12 years old. It’s a transitionary period and, with the onset of puberty, they’ll experience physical, emotional, social, and cognitive developmental changes. 

According to experts, increased independence is a key characteristic of the tween years. She’ll begin exploring many new things as she tries to figure out her identity, and friendships will play an important role in her life. Gifts that appeal to her interests, whether it be music, physical activity, or creative self-expression, will allow her to explore and express her interests. She’s at an age where she’ll constantly be scrolling Instagram and TikTok, so you can be assured she knows what’s cool and trendy, which is why the latest accessories, gadgets, stylish items of clothing, and other popular items are a hit with tween girls. As they get older, tween girls also take an interest in games and activities that challenge them and test their problem-solving abilities. Educational games, like science and building kits, are ideal for stimulating their evolving cognitive capabilities.  

How we identified the best gifts for tween girls

When selecting gifts for tween girls, we identified the hallmark characteristics of this age group and chose gifts that will appeal to their shifting interests. One of the biggest milestones that occur is the need for more independence and self-discovery. 

For this reason, we selected a variety of gifts that she can use to explore what she loves and showcase her personal style. We included artistic tools, accessories, and unique decorative items that she can use to express herself creatively and customize her personal space. We also factored in that tween girls spend a lot of time on social media. The gadgets and activities we chose are some of the trendiest on the market, which is why they’ll appeal to them.

Girls this age are not only developing physically and emotionally, but cognitively as well. As their logic and reasoning abilities evolve, they appreciate activities that are more challenging. We chose games of logic, building sets, and exploration kits that will test and strengthen these abilities and encourage them to seek solutions on their own.

Tips for buying the best gifts for tween girls

  1. Understand her interests
    Her interests are changing as she moves from childhood to adolescence. She may have once loved dolls, whereas now, her interests may lie with gadgets or games and toys that she can use to creatively express herself. Understanding what her current interests are will help you buy a gift that will bring her joy.
  2. Ask her
    Tweens are discovering what they like as they explore their identity. Their tastes are likely to be quite specific as well. Ask her how she enjoys spending her time and you’ll have a better idea of the type of gift to buy.
  3. Consider what’s cool
    Tweens are at an age where they want to fit in with their peers as friendships become more very important to them. The coolest gadgets, fashion, and style accessories tend to be popular because it’s likely her friends will have them too. Always look at what’s considered cool among the age group and you’ll have a winning gift.
