Best Gifts for a 12 Year Old Girl - Lots of fun gift ideas

*This post contains affiliate links*

Most 11 year olds girls have said their farewells to toys (not meaning all, some will still appreciate a toy like gift!) and welcome gifts that have a more adult, or to better put it teen, feel to them.

What gifts does a 11 year old girl want?

100 girls, 100 wishes. If you listen to them carefully they probably already said, either in between the lines or directly, what they want. Although the answer can also be that they don’t know, ha – I think we are all like this at some times.

Our 5 Top Picks

A Gift You Can Never go Wrong With

Money or Gift Cards

Money and gift cards might not win the “personal gift of the year” award but your little pre-teen will appreciate it as she will be able to get just the thing she wants. You can even make this an add-on gift, getting a gift that’s more personal and adding a gift card in lesser amount to that gift. Best of two worlds of gift giving.

Good choices for gift cards are

  • iTunes Gift Card
  • gift card to a clothing store
  • gift card for one of the stores of their main interest (like a pet shop gift card, arts and crafts, sports store…)

Some of the Most Asked for Gifts for a 11 Year Old Girl

Body Care Products and “make up”

Make up in it’s classic sense is a no-no but you can bet young girls are eyeing it (just think back and remember :).  Appropriate “make up” gifts for 11 year old girls are; lip balms, not to flashy lip gloss. If she really, really wants make up and you are against it you could compromise and gift her a subtle make up set for special occasions only.

Lip Balm Set

Lovely Lip Balm Set


As for body care products a lovely spa gift basket will go a long way. An age appropriate perfume is another fun pick (they are usually quite bubble gummy).

If they like doing their nails you can get them a nail kit that will take their nails to a whole new (adorable) level. A nail kit with a cute nail file will be great too.

Nail Studio

Nail Art Studio


These are an evergreen on the wish list of young ones these days… A phone, a MP3 player, a tablet… Or an accessory to go with the one they already have.

Does she likes sports?

If you are looking for gifts for a 11 year old girl who loves sports here are some of the ideas she might appreciate;

  • a new sports equipment for the sport she is into (ball, net, mat…)
  • a set of new sports clothes
  • home fitness equipment – cute weights, mat…

Gift Ideas for a Video Game Enthusiast 

You do have to know what kids of games she likes to play before getting her a new video game, while it’s easy to assume a “girly girl” game might be a good pick it isn’t necessarily true. I can speak from personal experience here as I am a video game enthusiast for as long as I can remember and when I was 11 I was all into RPG, shooters and adventure games. A “dress up” game that was geared towards girls would have me entertained for 2 minutes, on the other hand a game with pets would have me hooked for hours (even though it obviously didn’t fit my preferred game genres) . Point is, do your research and get her a game she will really, really enjoy.

Classes! Let them learn a life skill – these make great gifts for a 11 year old girl!

      • music lessons
      • cooking class
      • horseback riding, skiing lessons
      • a trip and a stay (with adult supervision) to another city or even country.
      • art classes

Something for Her Room

      • furniture – bean bag chairs are great
      • new bedding
      • wall art
      • doorbell (got to smile at this one but I think it’s awesome)
      • a new lamp
