Kaycee (12) and Ella (10) are at the age where it’s getting hard to buy Christmas gifts for them. Toys don’t cut it anymore! Now they’re into YouTube stars I’ve never heard of, pop groups I don’t know and collectable things that are a mystery to me (LOL dolls?!)
Tween girls can be hard to buy for so here are a few ideas I’ve picked up from listening to my 2 🙂
Christmas Gifts For Tween Girls
One thing both girls love to do now they’re older is to go shopping with their friends. A favourite shop of Ella’s is Smiggle and I know she’d have a wonderful time choosing her goodies!
I mentioned the LOL Dolls earlier. I saw them a few months ago but didn’t know anything about them. Ella told me what they actually were and she was kind enough to direct me to lots of YouTube videos!
They’re collectable dolls that come in a ball and you have to peel off the layers to find the surprises. There are also little sister dolls that have a present for their big sister in their ball.
I’ve seen a giant version for sale but instead of having a really big sister inside, it has lots of regular big sisters, apparently (I’m still really not sure what I’m talking about…..maybe I should have got Ella to write this bit for me!!).
Kaycee’s been asking if she can decorate her room next year. We haven’t decorated it since we moved in 4 years ago so I’ve said yes. I’ve been looking at things I could buy but it’s difficult because she has to share a room for Ella.
Ella wants a unicorn bedroom. Kaycee doesn’t!
We’re going to have to come to some arrangement so they can both choose their own decor, I’m just not sure how we’re going to do it yet!
I’ve been looking at lighting for their room. Ella likes to have a light on but Kaycee doesn’t so Ella has to have one that won’t disturb Kaycee’s sleep.
I love this selection of kids lamps, especially the owl one. I think Kaycee would really like it as it’s a more grown-up style.
Both girls love reading and Kaycee is a fan of David Walliams. His new book, Bad Dad is out now
I tend to go a bit overboard with books as gifts for the children. I’m trying to cut down this year because we seriously have no more room for any more books!
