Christmas is coming! And if you have a daughter in this age range, it’s the perfect time to start her on the path to becoming a true fashionista. But what are some of the best gifts for 11-year-old girls? Having thought of hundreds of middle-schoolers, I have a good understanding of what a girl this age might like.
Before the reviews, here are some things that will help you understand an 11-year-old and what she may appreciate as a gift.
An 11-year-old is typically able to think more abstractly than when she was younger. This means that she may be more interested in activities such as puzzles, games that involve strategy, and learning new things.
Many girls this age are starting to develop their adult body shape. They are also becoming more coordinated and agile. This may influence what gifts they prefer.
Most girls in this age group are starting to form friendships with people their own age. They are also becoming more interested in relationships and how they fit into the social world around them.
Factors to consider when picking a gift for a 10-year-old:
- Her interests: What does your daughter like to do for fun? What are her favorite activities? Does she have any hobbies? You may want to consider getting her a gift that is related to one of her interests.
- The occasion: Is the gift for a special occasion, such as Christmas or a birthday? Or is it just something to make her happy? If it’s for a special occasion, then you may want to consider something more expensive or elaborate.
- The recipient: Will the gift be for your daughter only, or will she be sharing it with other people? If it’s for a group, you may want to consider something that can be enjoyed by everyone.
- What she has asked for before: Has your daughter mentioned any specific gifts that she would like to receive? If so, you may want to consider getting her one of those items.
Now that you understand a bit more about 11-year-olds and have key considerations to use when picking one, here are some of the best gifts ideas for her:
1. A journal or diary
This gift is perfect for any age, but especially appropriate for an 11-year-old girl. It allows her to express herself creatively and can be a great way to document her thoughts and feelings.
2. Art supplies
Art supplies are a great gift for any creative child. They allow her to express herself in a variety of ways and can be fun to use.
3. A new outfit or pair of shoes
Many 11-year-old girls love clothes and shoes. A new outfit or pair of shoes is sure to please her on Christmas morning.
4. A gift card to her favorite store
If you’re not sure what she would like, a gift card to her favorite store is a safe bet. This way, she can choose something that she really wants.
5. A pedicure or manicure set
Many girls this age are starting to care about their appearance more. A pedicure or manicure set is a great gift that allows her to do her own nails.
6. A tablet or laptop
Many 11-year-olds are starting to use technology more and more. A tablet or laptop would be a great gift for her.
7. A subscription to her favorite magazine
Many girls this age love reading magazines. A subscription to her favorite magazine is a great way to keep her entertained.
8. A gift card to a beauty salon or spa
Many 11-year-old girls are becoming more interested in their appearance. A gift card to a beauty salon or spa is a great way for her to get a little pampering.
