Great Gift Ideas for Tween Girls (9-12 years old)

Great Gift Ideas for Tween Girls (9-12 years old)

Are you looking for a gift for a tween girl in your life? The Tween age group is between 9-12 years old. This could be somewhat of a tricky age where boys and girls are aging out of the easy, flashy toys that were so easy to choose and buy for them. On the other hand, they are not really grown up yet and still want lots of presents under the tree and for their birthdays.

I have some amazing gift ideas for you - loved and recommended by my own 10 years old daughter. These are all gifts she has received throughout the year and she truly loves. The gift guide list below is perfect if you are looking for some Christmas gift inspiration as well as gifts for birthdays, graduations, or just because. Any of these gift ideas make great presents for a daughter, sister, friend, granddaughter, niece, or any girl you know.

All of those can be purchased on Amazon. The easiest way to shop - you do not even need to leave your house.

Happy Shopping!

Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Camera - This little camera is so fun and easy to use. Perfect for making memories on the go and sharing them with loved ones. My daughter loves it! The best part is watching your little picture come out of the camera almost instantly and develop in front of your eyes.

Girls Friends Hair Salon Building Blocks - The building bricks set is similar to legos. It features a Hair Salon with 2 hairdressing chairs, a revolving and reclining shampoo bed, and a checkout counter. It is fun to build and play with this hair salon and it also looks cute as a room decor in my daughter's room. This fun set is recommended for those that enjoy building things and it is a perfect activity for promoting a child's brain development and stimulating a child's imagination.

Sterling Silver Lightweight Small Hoop Earrings - This is a 3 Pairs Set of Small Hoop Earrings. These hoop earrings are thin, small, and very lightweight perfect for tween girls. As a bonus, they are made out of fine sterling silver and are tarnish-free and nickel-free. They are dainty but sturdy which makes them a perfect gift for growing girls. 

BAKETIVITY Kids Baking DIY Activity Kit - Cake pops - My daughter absolutely loves this baking kit. It is truly such a cute and fun activity for any child. This particular set is for making delicious cake pops. The kit includes all pre-measured ingredients (which was a winner for me :)) and easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions with pictures. This is such a wonderful and educational set that would make a lovely gift or a great family activity. The box and packaging are very nicely designed and the ingredients are all vacuumed sealed. I cannot recommend this baking set enough. My daughter has already asked for another set. 

Jewelry Making Kit - The possibilities are endless with this clay beads jewelry kit. My daughter absolutely loves making bracelets, necklaces, and even rings. She loves this set! She makes them for family and friends as gifts. The beads and other supplies come in a storage container which is great to keep everything organized. 


Super Weaving Loom - Fun, creative and easy way to learn to create a scarf, pot holders, and a satchel with easy-to-follow instructions. The set even includes 150 yards of yarn. Fun for kids to make those and then gift their handmade creations to friends and family. This seems to be a fun activity for the whole family and it seems everyone in our household has worked on this a little bit at a time. 

Oversized Hooded Blanket Sweatshirt - Super Soft Warm Comfortable Sherpa Wearable Blanket with Giant Pocket. The hooded sweatshirt can be used anytime and anywhere, which is the most comfortable choice for every family member. 


Pop Purse Shoulder Bag - pop up toys are so popular nowadays and it seems to be a toy trend that is here to stay. Kids love these fun and calming pop-up fidget toys which makes them a great gift idea!  It can relieve people's stress, release anxiety, keep your good mood, and get rid of boredom during daily life. 


DIY Crystal Slime Kit – Slime kits - My daughter said that this is the best slime kit ever! That speaks a lot since she loves making and playing with slime and has received several different slime kits in the past. The slime is really good quality; it is not sticky and does not have any chemical-like or nasty smells as some others do. The slime is already made. The kids can just mix in the accessories like glitter or beads to make a large variety of colorful slimes. Very impressed and highly recommend it if your girl loves playing with slime.

The inside of the case includes a mirror so you can apply your makeup accessibly. Includes 86 assorted colors and shades. This high pigmented makeup set is hypoallergenic, formulated with mineral oil, and not tested on animals. It is also Formaldehyde and Sulfate free. The Trendy and Stylish design makes this makeup artist kit a great gift idea for Christmas, the Holiday season, and Birthdays.

Easy to pair, easy to charge, and premium sound quality. Easily control your music, calls, and voice assistant functions with Smart Touch Control. You can use one earbud independently or two earbuds at the same time to suit your different needs.


Pop it fidget toy - Stress relief sensory fidget toys for children and adults, can relieve stress, release anxiety, the best gift for people suffering from ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, autism, anxiety etc. Both the simple fidget spinner and the popping fidget toy at the same time, giving you more happiness!


Imily Bela Kids Crop Tops Girls Hoodie - Very cute and stylish for the little fashionista. A cropped top seems to be on every girl’s wish list. It actually comes to mid-tummy on my daughter and she wears a cami underneath it. It is of great quality, comfortable and it comes in several very cute colors.


Pop Solo Karaoke Microphone - This is a 3-in-1 Portable Handheld Karaoke Microphone Speaker. Hours and hours of singing and dance parties. The Bluetooth module can be used as a speaker, player, and Recorder, compatible with various singing applications. While singing you will hear your voice along with the music. My daughter loves it.
