Gift Guide for Preteen girls

 I've never put together a gift guide before.  But I've had so many people messaging me about what I'm buying the girls and what are some ideas.  So I still have never put together a gift guide........but my girls did.  I had them give me a list of anything they would love to get and I'm going to share with you! Hopefully it helps if you are shopping for this age (around 8-12 girls)! 

This wasn't on their list since we already have two but y'all ask me about this SOOO much.  They got these hover boards either 2 or 3 years ago and they still ride them constantly around the house.  Any time we have friends over - that's the first thing the friends want to do.  And Will Holden rides it too.  Kids are really amazing at riding.  I wouldn't get on it if you paid me.  But it's SO worth the money.  I love anything that they are still using years later which is basically nothing. ha! 

This year the family request is a Nintendo switch.  They all have gotten into video games thanks to Covid Quarantine. ha! It may be a long winter so I'm pretty sure this will be a good investment! 

My kids are funny.  They really don't want much and what they do want are little things like Chapstick, journals and Cadbury Eggs. ha! The other thing high on their lists are gift cards.  Last year they each got gift cards to Justice, Target and a gift card to a nail salon for a manicure.  They LOVED that.  

Here are other things they gave me on their list:

Doc Martens.  Yes Doc Martens.  I'm not crazy about them but then again we wore them back in middle school too.  

They are super obsessed with getting LED lights for their bedroom.  That's the ultimate wish for them. ha! 

A portable photo printer that works with their iPads or phones (they have our old phones that work on wifi for games and texting).  

HIGH on their list is sweatshirts of any kind.  They live in sweatshirts and leggings.  

Last year Harper wanted Lululemon pants (because of course - we have $$$ taste) but apparently they aren't making girls clothes anymore but Atlheta has some great leggings and joggers.  

Pura Vida bracelets are on their list and another hot item.  

Another big wish list item are these back packs that come in a lot of colors.  

Cable bites are a cute stocking stuffer! 

I'm obsessed with these felt letter ornaments as an early gift or maybe something the elf brings! Only $10 from Anthro! 

Sephora has great gift sets for under $25 that girls would love with face masks or lip gloss.  

This is something else that has been a huge hit at our house.  A cordless microphone that has blue tooth! 

And most girls this age want Hydro flask water bottles that they can put stickers on.  

Other things on their list that are quick pick ups from Target or Walmart are:

Face Masks (skin care)
Face Masks (the kinds we all have to wear now)
Cute PJ's 
The big stickers that go on water bottles or computers
Cute socks
Bath Bombs

I hope this gives you a few ideas!!!
