Gifts for the tween in your life
Because emotions are very high in girls of this age range, gifts that evoke a strong emotional response from them are very appealing. This means gifts which are sweet, romantic, or magical in nature are very well received. Gifts that never go wrong with these young ladies are presents of angels, fairies, or elfin creatures especially if your present represents good luck. This type of magical gift can be in the form of a journal that is adorned with these creatures; it can be a picture, jewelry, a statuette, a stuffed toy, a doll, or a book about them. It is more the theme than the item that counts here, if your gift deals with these magical creatures than they are sure to love it. Perhaps this love of these magical beings is because this age group still live in that wonderful imaginary play land of youth and can envision themselves as one of these creatures. Or perhaps girls of this age are just still young minded enough to still believe in the existence of fairies and elves and they love that their gift comes in a theme that is surrounded in mystery or mystical magic.
Babies are another favorite gift theme for girls age 8 to 12, gifts of small fairy babies, stuffed baby animals, books decorated with babies, or pictures of babies are all very popular gift items. The nice thing about baby themed gifts is that it doesn't seem to matter if the gift you choose depicts a human baby or an animal baby, it is wonderful just because it is a baby, and for no other reason. This allows you to have an amazing array of gift items in this arena to choose from.
Girls just seem to naturally be fascinated by lotions, perfumes and glittery glosses at a very young age and as they mature the intoxicating effect of these items just continues to grow. Girls age eight to twelve are just a hairs breath away from having free rein of the usage of these products and they delight in experimenting with them now. Any beauty gift that you choose to give will be greeted with a great deal of excitement. Young ladies are only too anxious to be able to experiment and dabble about to discover all that they can about these magical female lotions and potions.
Money and gift certificates are always a favorite with young people and this age group is no exception. They are just a little too young yet to have a job so receiving money, or a gift certificate, and being able to go shopping for them is perhaps the ultimate in "Fun". Women just seem to naturally love to shop and these young ladies are no exception. I am sure each of these girls would agree that receiving a gift of this pleasure is the absolute best present that they could receive.
