Tween With Gift

We all know that tweens are notoriously difficult to buy for! Not quite grown-up but not longer a child, they oscillate from toys to make-up, tech to teddies in the blink of an eye. So, to prepare our Gift Guide for Tween Girls, we went straight to the horse’s mouth (so to speak) and asked a group of tween girls, and their parents, what was on the Christmas list this year.

We’ve grouped the gifts by category so you can quickly navigate to your tween’s topic of interest. Each of the items comes in at under £100(*), with the vast majority at stocking filler prices or just above.

(*) prices correct as at time of publication.
