The holidays are nearly here, and I’ve put together a few different gift guides to get you started! Today is all about tween gift ideas. Do you struggle to find good gifts for your tweens?
When they were younger, toys were so easy to get for the holidays. But now, these kids in the 8-12 age range think they are practically miniature adults and want big ticket items.
I’ve put together a collection of some of our personal favorites that my kids love and use every day as well as a few things they are dying to get their hands on. There’s even some stocking stuffers. Check it out and see if it can help you check some of the perfect gifts off your list this holiday season.
I will be adding to this list all season long, so check back often to get more gift ideas as we get closer to the holidays!
