Gift Guide: Tween Girls

Tween is a new word that describes youths who are roughly ages 8-14, who are “between” childhood and the teenage years. The term “tween” is a blend of the words “between” and “teen.”

Goodness, I have a tween daughter!!

I love a list. I'm hoping you do too. I'm listing what tweens want this holiday season.

Our family does 3 gifts to open on Christmas day, a pair of pajamas to open on Christmas eve, and we have a stocking that Santa does (even though my kids know that Santa is a game... I didn't even try with Henry). Santa's stocking aren't the best gifts but that is where I put undies, new socks, their yearly ornament and a small gift card...

Things to keep in mind- I hate toys... because my kids aren't responsible and don't clean up after themselves. We are keeping the things to a minimum. (And because I am Konmari method-ing the house...

What do Tweens want: 

1. Shoes
Lucy told me that shoes give her a good tickle and make her so happy. She also really wants to wear high heels. This tom's wedge is a good tween choice because of the low heel. Leopard is sassy but there are other options available. Dillards has them on sale. 

2. Tablets
Jonathan heard Lucy say she wanted a tablet and the technology nerd came out and replaced the parent. I'd rather the kids not have a tablet because I want them outside running but limited technology time isn't a bad thing I've been told...
