Browse through some of the best gifts for 11 year old girls! There’s a whole lot of fun ideas for all kinds of smart personalities – you’ll find great picks for friends, sister, daughter and more!
The older they are the harder it can be to pick that one perfect gift for them but I do hope this gift guide will bring you some insight.
What Gifts Does a 11 to 12 Year Old Girl Want?
Their characters are really showing at this age and boy can they vary! You can have your typical “girly girl” that loves having her hair done and nails perfect or you can have a rocker that just loves music. And you can have a million other things.
I can tell you one thing though – money or gift cards do go a long way with this age group that’s for sure!
Gummy Candy Maker
What better way to make sure the yummy gummy bears are healthy (well as much as they can be) than to make them at home?
This gummy candy maker kit lets your kids create their favourite candy as they mix and match different flavours in their ultimate candy goal. They’ll be able to make their favourite shapes – gummy bear, fish and snake!
Hands down our favorite pick!
Pajamas and a Yes for a Sleepover (a classic Christmas gift for a 11 year old 😉 – better than socks 😉
As we already mentioned sleepovers can be a thing at this age group and a fancy looking pajama is a must! Well even if they don’t do sleepovers a cool pajama is a fun gift.
We are fans of footed pajamas – they keep the feet warm and have a cool look to them and as far as patterns go I am in favor of zebra! There is a ton of cool pijamas out there and I’m sure you can find the perfect one for your little girl.
Fancy Nails – Nail Style Studio
Oh nails, the little canvases. Girls can get really creative with their nails and there are so many fun ways you can decorate them so why just stick to one color nail polish! What’s great with giving a kit like this is that it will fit many styles of tweens, a rocker can create her rocker designs, a geek her geeky ones (just think about all the superheroes) and so on.
This nail style kit comes with all the essentials to create little works of arts – a book with lots of easy to follow tutorials, nail polishes, design tool to help decorate the nails and 250 stick on stencils.
If your 11 year old is into science (or even slightly into it) that is just great! Get her something that will further encourage her interest – like a microscope. Be sure to get one that can be connected to the computer as this will make it easy to save their microscopic discoveries and share them with their friends.
In addition to the microscope you can also get a set of pre-prepared slides with all kinds of cool things to be seen in them. Also get a few empty slides so that they will be able to make their own.
More Great Gift Picks for 11 Year Old Girls
Doddle By Stitch Pillow
Before I say anything else you can also get a duvet (and other things in this series).
This Pillow is special… Why? Because it comes with special fabric pens that let your kids (or you) draw or write whatever they want on the pillow and once it hits the washer the drawings get erased so they can do it all over again. Just like having a brand new pillow each and every time it comes out of the washer.
If you have a young crafter in your home a crafting kit will make a great gift. Bracelet making kits are fairly popular amongst 11 year old girls as they love to do them for themselves and their friends.
I think most girls like to do something with their hair – no matter what their look and style is there is a hairstyle that goes with it.
This book has plenty of how to’s and tutorials on how to make different hairstyles and I am sure your girl will find one or two (or ten) that will work for her.
Add a few accessories and you have the perfect gift.
Spending time with their friends is really important to them and sleepovers are a thing for this age group (not for all though) so this nifty device could make hanging out with their friends even more fun – and more delicious!
Now whenever they have their friends over you just bring them a bowl of fresh fruit and let them enjoy a chocolate fondue!
