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.

Filled with marshmallows, these hot chocolate bombes from Cocoba dissolve when covered in warm milk to give a lovely mug of creamy hot chocolate, complete with toppings! (There’s a vegan version available too.)
We absolutely adore these toasting gift sets from The Naked Marshmallow Company and knew our Gift Guide For Tween Girls wouldn’t be complete without it! Pick two flavours from a selection to create the perfect combination for your young person.
2020 is most definitely the year of the comfies … and they don’t get much more comfy than the Oodie – an ultra soft fleecy blanket with sleeves! But do get the order in quickly as these are selling like hot cakes.
Pearl & Earl’s custom star initial sweatshirt is the perfect festive gift. It works just as well over the holidays as it will in the new year, and this classic loose fit top will be ideal for those cold winter days.
The original onesie company, Onepiece, is a little pricier than some others, but their jumpsuits are great quality, wash well and there’s a huge selection of patterns. If you have a smaller tween, you may get away with a kids size!
In a fabulously festive cheery red, this ever popular Carrie Cross Body Bag by Johnny Loves Rosie is just perfect for your young person about town. Personalise with their initials for extra brownie points!
This timeless piece from Swarovski is sure to brighten any day. We like the simplicity of the rhodium plated chain with white stone heart. However the brand have a wide range of cute, affordable designs that are definitely worth checking out.
Abbott Lyon’s signature name necklaces are so elegant. We love the beautiful rose gold one most – personalised but the handwritten script makes the name element more subtle, and hence design more mature.
Pandora is having its moment right now. And, with such a gorgeous selection of charms to choose between, it’s easy to see why. Add to an existing collection, or start a new tradition of gifting charms by giving the chain and a starter charm or two this year.
If you’re looking for something a little lighter on the bank balance, then Francesca Rossi Designs could be just the ticket. This cute personalised necklace, for example, would make a fabulous stocking filler.
Speaking of fairy lights… Ensure that year-round festival feel with this bedroom must-have. We love these LED wire strings from Lights4Fun. (The wire is easier to conceal than traditional thicker plastic cables, leaving the lights seemingly floating in mid-air.)
If you really feel like spoiling your tween this Christmas, then a gorgeous silk pillowcase should be on your list. Blissy have a wide range of colours to choose from. We rather like this tie dye pastel option.
Ok, your tween may be growing up, but you’re never too old to finish your room design with a smiling plush toy. The Jellycat Amuseables range are just fabulous, and we particularly love the characterful festive treats!
From the best-selling author of This Is Going To Hurt, Kay’s Anatomy is new for Autumn 2020 and provides a humourous, if somewhat gruesome, introduction to human anatomy. (We think it’s perfect for this age-group, but do take a browse first to check you’re comfortable with all the topics discussed.)
Continuing the theme of adapting classic games, any Harry Potter enthusiast will be thrilled with this Cluedo set. Players travel by floo powder in your quest to rescue a key character. Careful not to get locked in Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes though!
We’ll leave you to decide whether this is the year to treat your tween to a set of noise-cancelling wireless Beats! However, if you’re looking for an affordable alternative, we would recommend these wireless headphones by Rydohi. They come with their own case, and in a variety of colours.
Anything branded with your young person’s favourite YouTuber is almost guaranteed to be a hit! So get googling those merch stores.
The quintessential tween gift! Unfortunately a little caution needs to be applied this year as we watch the High Street struggle with the challenges of 2020 (remember gift card holders sit low down the list of creditors if things take a turn for the worse).
That being said, the Kid’s Choice gift card provides a selection of tween-friendly shopping options so it should be a safe winner.
