You’ve got this- Gifts for 11 year old girls!
Capable & Crafty- This is a great age for arts & crafts. Their fine motor skills have developed and can pretty much do anything skill wise that interests them. If the 11 year old is not in your immediate family, you may want to speak with the parents to determine what would interest them in this category but you have everything from learning to sew, crochet, friendship bracelets, tile art, making clay bracelet charms, string art, tie dye, etc. If the 11 year old is more into art than crafts, a great set of markers/sharpies with a drawing notebook or adult coloring book would be perfect. This age also would love getting involved in the Kindness Rocks Project. If you haven’t heard of it you can check out the general facebook page Here but many cities have specific facebook pages such as Kindness Rocks Project of (your city or state). I think a great gift would be to gather a basket and the needed supplies so they could become involved. Basic supplies include acrylic paint, sealer, stones, oil based sharpie paint pens. Putting these together with a printed page explaining the Kindness Rock Project will give her inspiration to give back to her community!
Sweet & Speedy- These girls love to be on the move! Things like razor electric scooters, ripsticks, hoverboards, penny boards, bikes, trampolines, zip lines, hoola hoops, and the list could go on are all great for this age.
Totally Tech- Some girls at this age already have a phone but many don’t because of smart parents trying to keep their kids from going there just yet. If they do not have a phone, maybe consider something like an ipad mini which can allow them some level of technology without having it constantly in their pocket. Parental controls can be placed on an ipad to prevent anything the parent doesnt wish their child to have access to. Is this an adventure loving girl? Loves to swim, hike, ride bikes? Why not equip her with a camera/GoPro? She’ll be able to record all her adventures and share it with her friends! Social Media is big even at this age. Instagram, Snapchat, DIY, Musically……..and with the right parental supervision can be loads of fun for them. By giving them tools to record or photograph their world, they love sharing it!
Friends & Fun- What can her and her best friend do that would be fun? Would they love to go to that trampoline park or gymnastics night together? Would they like to go to the water park or go goofy golfing or skating? Would they like to get their nails done and stop at their favorite yogurt stop? This is a great gift- nontangible but definitely fun. Print the tickets or online info or gift card and enclose in a cute card. As an added bonus, add her favorite candy attached to the outside of the card!
Now Let’s Go Look at some of these Gifts!
