Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Tweens


Not little kids anymore.

Not yet big kids, either.

Just stuck in the middle. And very hard to shop for.

I’ve been spending a lot of time searching for Christmas gifts for my tweens and I thought you’d like to see some of the ideas I’ve come up with. A few of these contain affiliate links.



All kids love tablets. With an Android 4.0  tablet your child can play games, watch videos, or even work on homework assignments without fighting over whose turn it is to use the computer. Imagine the peace!


Cell Phone

Let’s face it, all tweens want a cell phone.

But who wants to pay a high cell phone bill? Not me!

So why not consider a prepaid phone like this one from Virgin Mobile?

It’s only $35 a month for unlimited text and data. While it only has 300 minutes for talking that shouldn’t be much of a problem. Most tweens prefer to text instead of talk. You should hear the shock and surprise when someone actually CALLS one of kids. They expect it to be an emergency or something.

“Why are you calling? That’s weird! Just text me!”

Virgin Mobile uses the Sprint Network so if you’ve got Sprint in your area this phone will work for you.



Clothes are pretty self-explanatory. All tweens like to look good. They are starting to really notice the opposite sex and they themselves want to be noticed. Pay attention to their own personal style before purchasing anything though.



Gift Cards

Every kid loves gift cards. They get to buy exactly what they want. A gift card takes all of the guesswork out of deciding what to buy.

Gift cards are an excellent idea for those of you that are out of town. No more worries over expensive shipping costs.



Buying for tweens doesn’t have to be hard. I hope this short list helps you out.

  1. The tweens- oh, so hard, in more ways than one… but yes, you are right, especially hard to buy for! I know I can always go with the old gift card stand by. I am no longer “cool” enough to choose clothes…
