Twelve is a really great age for girls. They’re old enough that they’re starting to take an interest in adult styles and clothes, but they can still enjoy a fun toy.
They’re starting to get serious about what they want to be when they grow up, but they still have a couple years left of giggling and singing into hairbrushes. At twelve, a girl’s interests really start to get specific.
These gifts were designed to please the pickiest tween possible, and showcase the best gifts for a 12 year old girl.
1. Project Mc2 Create Your Own Lip Balm Lab Kit
The best gifts for a 12 year old girl combine one or more of her interests. This lip balm kit is perfect for a girl who likes science and looking good.
The lip balm’s don’t go all the way to being a lipstick, so they’re perfect for a young girl. Getting to mix the formula and the scents herself makes this engaging at a time when most girls are drifting away from science.
Plus, this little kit is enough to make several lip balms. She can use it to mix up gifts for the other members of her family. This is great for kids who don’t have a lot of money to use to shop for their siblings or parents. It really is the gift that keeps on giving!
2. Kindle Paperwhite E-reader
Ereaders are one of the best gifts for a 12 year old girl. Easy access to books encourages her to read for pleasure as well as school. Girls who like to read on their own time are girls who are better prepared to handle the stresses of school.
While there are many kinds of Kindle, the Paperwhite is a better gift for a young girl than a Kindle Fire. The other is really a tablet computer.
She can read, but she can also do lots of other things on it. The Kindle Paperwhite is just an ebook. She can buy some books directly online, but the only thing she can really do with it is read.
It will stop her from spending all of her designated reading time messing around on social media.
3. Qedertek Fairy Blossom Flower Solar String Lights
The best gifts for a 12 year old girl enable her to express her individuality. Letting her decorate her room is a low cost, low risk way to let her get some control over her life.
These fairy blossom lights add a whimsical, pretty touch to any girl’s bedroom. She can pretend her room is a gorgeous grotto, any time! Plus, the bulbs don’t emit much heat—perfect for a forgetful tween girl who might fall asleep with them on!
