Gifts for Girls, ages 7 to 12
One of the hottest things this year have been the reversible sequin pillows and clothing. My girls love playing with all the reversible sequin shirts at Justice and they’re dying for their own bed pillow. These things are mesmerizing! Run your hand back and forth and the sequins change colors… it’s really cool! These are pillow covers, so be sure to buy the insert too.
Did you know there are rock painting clubs?? Me neither! Apparently, certain cities have clubs where you paint rocks, hide them in the city, then leave clues on a designated Facebook page for others to find them. Whoever takes it, can leave behind a painted rock of their own. I thought that was a fun idea! It doesn’t look like anything is set up in my area, that I can find, but I think my girls would still love to paint rocks, and who knows… maybe they can get a little club started! This Hide & Seek Rock Painting Kit it the perfect way to get started. There are also some fun rock painting idea books available (see bundling ideas below.)
I’ve had my eye on these Cat Ear Bluetooth Headphones by Censi for my 9 year old daughter. She has a thing for cats and dinking around on her iPod… so, between the two, these are perfect!
The Big Book of Girl Stuff gets great reviews and I think both of my girls would love it! It’s a book packed full of questions and answers regarding life at their age… such as babysitting, makeup, family and friend advice. It even has some fun ideas of things to do, because they’re kinda over my suggestion of folding laundry.
Both my 9 and 11 year old are always asking me to put their wallets in my purse when we go out… I’m like, “Get your own!” Well, maybe Christmas will come in handy… lighten my load a little. 😉 They both have a couple purses, but they’re pretty juvenile. I think they would love something a little more ‘grown up’ but still girly. I’m loving these crossbody bags by Sakroots. I love crossbody bags for ease-of-wearing and they’re safer to tote around (less likely to be grabbed away.)
Both of my daughters love creative writing. For homeschool, they are always begging me to give them 3 random words to create a story around. I think they would love to have one of their stories turned into a professional looking hardcover book with this Story By Me kit!! It would be a fun childhood memento too.
For homeschool this year, we’ve been studying how people lived in the mid to late 1800’s. We’ve done several projects like making homemade butter, learning to crochet, and making homemade soap. I was super impressed with the soap making kit I found on Etsy from Make with Mum. It was a million times better than any kid’s soap kit that you would find in a toy store. Even the sealed box that came in the mail smelled amazing, thanks to the essential oils and dried flowers inside. The quality of everything was top-notch and all of my kids had a great time making their own soaps.
Bundle this gift with: a gift card making kit, to have a cute card to present with their soap for their special recipient.
