15 Best Christmas Gifts for a 12-Year-Old Girl
So, whether you’re shopping for your daughter, niece, or granddaughter, you’re sure to find the perfect gift right here.
A Cute and Comfy Pair of PJs
Every girl needs a cozy pair of pajamas to lounge around in and these cute and comfy ones are sure to be a hit. They’re super soft and come in a variety of fun prints and colors, so she can choose her favorite. Plus, they’re affordably priced, so you can pick up a few pairs without breaking the bank.
The Latest Fashion Trends
If she’s like most tweens, she’s probably obsessed with all things fashion. So why not surprise her with some of the latest trends? Best of all, the prices are super reasonable, so you won’t have to spend a fortune to keep her looking fashionable.
A Fun and Stylish Phone Case
A new phone case is always a great gift idea, and this one is both fun and stylish. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns, so she can choose her favorite. It’s also durable enough to protect her phone from drops and scratches.
The Latest Must-Have Gadgets
These gadgets are all things my kids have and love. You can’t go wrong with things that keep them active and help them fall asleep.
The sound machine comes in different colors and is the right gift for your child who has a tough time falling asleep (like my son does). The hoverboard is a great choice to keep the kids outside and decrease screen time. Laser Tag offers a perfect way to have so much fun with any age group – whether you’re in elementary school, middle school, high school, or are a full-blown adult.
For the ultimate gaming experience, she’ll need this Nintendo Switch console from Amazon. It comes with two Joy-Con controllers that can be used together or separately for multiplayer gaming fun. Plus, it has a 6.2″ LCD screen for solo play while on the go. Prices start at $299 but vary depending on which fun games are included.
If you want to give her something unique, how about this custom name necklace from Etsy? The pendants and Chains are 925 Sterling Silver and can be ordered in silver, gold, and rose gold. Each order will come in a jewelry box.
When it comes to getting a Christmas gift, a great way to ensure you’re buying the perfect accessory is to monogram it. I love personalized gifts for Christmas. On Etsy, you can find so many in your price range.
If you know me, you know I wouldn’t end a gift guide without including a good book. In my opinion, books make the best gifts. These are all popular sets that any 12-year-old girl (and her siblings) would love.
Ivy & Bean are two opposites who become great friends. Emily Windsnap is a mermaid who takes magical adventures. The Owl Diaries include fast-paced plots as stories are told from a diary. Junie B. Jones takes you on funny classroom adventures. The Magic Treehouse series is about siblings who discover a magical treehouse in the woods.
Bonus List of Gifts
Some other great gifts that would be perfect for 12-year-olds include things like
- board games or an escape room game to play with the whole family,
- video games fit for young girls and young adults,
- a cell phone to go with that cell phone case shared above,
- a motivational water bottle she can use for a long time,
- a LEGO set with bright colors,
- color-changing string lights,
- a coloring book for (almost) everyday use,
- waterproof speakers,
- Harry Potter book set,
