Do you have a tween girl in your life that you are trying to find the perfect gift for? You are in the right spot! We know that is difficult to keep up with what's cool for tween girls. As an organization that needs to have a pulse on middle school trends, we have put together a team of tween girls who serve as our "Cool Hunters." These girls help us with a variety of fun tasks including keeping us up to date on what is cool!
Our Cool Hunters helped us put together this gift guide. Not only are these gifts tween approved, they are all under $50!
1. DA BOMB BATH FIzzers
Bath bombs are a fun trend for relaxation. Our favorite kinds are ones made by girls! Da Bomb is a company founded by teen sisters that decided it was too sad when bath bombs fizzed out. So they created a variety of bath bombs that had a fun surprise inside when they were gone.
We are fans of the Quote Bomb which has a quote when it dissolves, the Cozy Bomb which is pumpkin spice flavored with a fun surprise inside, and the Snow Ball that includes a holiday treat. Not only are these cool gifts, it's a chance to talk about these inspiring young entrepreneurs.
Our Cool Hunters are obsessed with the app Muscial.ly to record themselves dancing and lip syncing. They said they love Popsockets to stick to their phones or tablets because it props up their device to easily record what they are doing. There are a variety of designs but this Peace Mandala ones is by far the most popular. What an awesome, little gift!
3. ITUNES GIftcard
4. Angels and Tomboys Body Lotion
Girls said they love trying new bath products with fun scents. Angels and Tomboys is a company recently featured on Shark Tank that makes bath lotions and bath gels by tween girls themselves .
Mallory and Madison are sisters that said they wanted bath products that smelled like things they liked as kids. So they developed their own line of products including fun flavors like Watermelon Funk, Deep Fried Ice Cream, Lemonade Doughnuts, and Frozen Hot Chocolate. Their products are all-natural and vegan too.
Not only are these girls entrepreneurs, they make videos where they show off their singing and dancing skills! This is a great gift for girls, made by girls just like them.
5. Love Your Melon HAT
These amazing hats are all the rage. Girls love how they look (especially the pom ones!) and they sell out very quickly due to high demand. Even better, girls love that they support a cause because fifty percent of the net proceeds from the sale of these products are donated to nonprofits that fight against pediatric cancer.
6. Random acts of flowers art kit
Girls said that they love art kits. This art kit contains the supplies and directions to create bouquets of paper flowers that each have a positive message on tied to them.
The kit also provides directions to put the flowers out in public to spread positivity. This is a great project for the family to talk about kindness and create something beautiful!
7. USE YOUR VOICE NECKLACE
Our Cool Hunters said that they like jewelry with metal charms that is tailored to them. We found this beautiful, keepsake necklace that has special meaning.
We know that it can be difficult for a girl to feel like her voice matters, which can cause her to stay quiet. This necklace serves as a reminder that the world does want to hear her ideas and can help provide her with the confidence to speak up.
8. Lokai Bracelet
We have seen so many girls rocking these inspirational bracelets. Each of these stretchy bracelets is made out of rubber beads and contains a white and black bead at each end. The white bead contains water from Mount Everest, the highest point on earth, to remind you to stay humble when you are on top. The black bead holds mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, reminding you to stay hopeful. Girls love the look of the bracelet and the fact that it represents the high and lows of life.
9. Birchbox Subscription
Our cool hunters said that they love experimenting with different makeup. They said they love makeup subscription boxes that allow them to try new things. Birchbox is a subscription box that comes every month and has five high-end makeup samples in it. It's a fun monthly surprise and was founded by two #GirlBosses that we look up to!
Price: Starting at $30 for a 3 month subscription
10. Ivory ella
Ivory Ella is a hot clothing line for tweens. They love the fun designs of elephants and love even more that 10% of the proceeds go to an organization called Save The Elephants. The most popular items for the girls are these oversized comfy long sleeved shirts.
Price: Starting at $32
11. Make your own ukulele kit
Ukuleles are the perfect gift for the girl that loves music. It's an easy instrument to learn and is beautiful to hear. This kit allows girls to assemble and design their own personal ukulele! It can be stained, painted, or bedazzled - the possibilities are endless.
