Holiday Gift Ideas for Tween Girls

I’m finding as the girls get older it gets harder (or rather more expensive) to find things I know they will like.  I suppose gone are the days when barbie dolls would suffice.  I am new to the tween world but I believe with my technical prowess and motherly skills I have assembled a decent list.  Sure hope you find it useful!   If you are feeling a bit stumped or want to grab a few more things, perhaps this list will give you some ideas….  Good Luck and Happy Shopping!

Let your kids express themselves with a cool karaoke Machine. Granted, I have a basement that I can put this in so if you don’t – I suggest you move with caution. If you have more than one child you can get each their own microphone (to avoid conflicts of course!). They will love you like mad for this! 



vanity 150x150 Holiday Gift Ideas for Tween GirlsMakeup Vanity
Do you hate sharing the mirror with the kids?   Get them their own vanity and encourage them to do their hair in their own room.  A vanity is also a great place for them to store their hair brushes, clips and makeup.  They seriously range in price I suggest you shop around.
