This week we are excited about Small Business Saturday and wanted to highlight tween girls who run their own businesses so we can all support them!
If you are looking for a gift or stocking stuffer for the tween girl in your life, get her a gift made by another girl. Girls know girls. They create products they wish they had and know what their market wants better than adults!
When you give a gift by one of these young entrepreneurs, share their story as a reminder that girls can do anything at any age! We included information and some videos about their stories for easy sharing.
Let's amplify the ideas of these girls because
Girls Support Girls!
Do you know of a cool product made by a young girl to add to our list? Comment on this post and let us know!
Check out our other gift guides!
1. Da Bomb Bath Fizzers
Bath bombs are a fun trend for relaxation that everyone loves. Da Bomb is a company founded by teen sisters who decided it was too sad when bath bombs fizzed out. So they created a variety of bath bombs with Da Bomb that had a fun surprise inside when they were gone. Their products now have a huge following and their business is growing!
We are fans of the Hero Bomb which has a superhero inside, the Bling Bomb which contains a piece of jewelry, and the Fortune Telling Bomb that dissolves to tell you your fortune! You can get their products online or a variety of retailers that you can look up by state HERE.
