This list is in response to Mrs. Woodward, here you will find some of the best suitable gifts for a 10 year old girl.
Turning 10 years old is emerging out to be as important a landmark as turning a teenager. ‘Tweens’ are what these 10 year olds are called as they are neither kids nor teenagers, and categorizing them in any of these categories is not right.
Choosing a gift for these tweens then becomes a difficult task as they have outgrown the kiddie stuff and are too young for the teenage stuff. With ever expanding horizons at this age, there is just so much to learn and assimilate, both at school and at home.
Information overload is what these tweens deal with all the time, and this then leads to development of certain interest areas and discarding of other areas. Naturally then, tweens become selective about their choices like reading, experimenting with things like art and craft and science tools, cooking, gardening etc.
If the given task of choosing a gift was not daunting enough, it becomes even more difficult if it is a girl that you have to give the gift to. Not all girls are the same, some really like the girlie things while others are absolute tom boyish in their interests.
Depending on the interest level of the tween girl, you could choose from a wide variety of gifts like books, jewelery, DIY kits, science kits, board games, kits that help developing a particular skill set etc. Here is a consolidation of such selective items that may appeal to you tween. They have been put together covering all the above mentioned aspects, so that you make the perfect choice for your loved one.
