Has your little girl got to that stage where she no longer wants to be thought of as a child or treated as such? She may not be a teenager just yet, but if your daughter is about to hit double digits, then the chances are she won’t be happy with lots of toys for her birthday. Instead, she’ll want presents that are a little more grown up.
So with that in mind, below are some non-toy gift ideas that your tween daughter is sure to love, and best of all, they won’t break the bank! (If you’re a frugal mama like me, being budget friendly is most probably a must when it comes to gift buying.) Have a read, get some ideas, and pick your daughter the perfect presents for her upcoming birthday.
Girls get to a certain age and become obsessed with clothes. They want to dress in all the most stylish pieces and follow all of the most on-trend fashions. If your daughter has got to that age, then the perfect birthday present for her could be new clothes. Yes, you might buy her bits and bobs throughout the year that she needs, but she’d probably love to go on a shopping trip with you and pick out all of her own clothes – a whole new wardrobe. The good news is that this doesn’t have to be too expensive, especially if you take advantage of sales, deals, and discounts.
How about picking your daughter some beauty products for her birthday? She may be too young for makeup, but that doesn’t mean that she can’t start building her collection of other beauty products – you’re never too young for proper skin care, for instance. The good news is that beauty products, from hair oils to facial cleansers don’t have to be expensive, if you’re a savvy shopper, that is. Take these Fingerhut gift ideas, for instance – things like face cream, nail polish, or hair products would make a great birthday present. For example, for tweens nail polish sets are ideal, as they’re fun for them to use and test out. By utilizing the deals on discount sites, you can ensure that you stay within your budget while getting your tween some amazing gifts.
Accessories for her bedroom
Last but not least, how about selecting her some accessories for her bedroom? If your tween wants to be more grown up, a grown up bedroom could be the answer. Instead of redoing the whole room, consider swapping out old accessories for new ones. Think wall art, a new bedding set, a lamp, curtains, and cute, quirky ornaments – rose gold/copper and pink is very in at the moment, so this could be a good color scheme to follow, depending on your daughter’s tastes, of course. Shop at discount home decor stores, and you can make some amazing savings.
Hopefully, the ideas above have given you some inspiration for picking the perfect non-toy gifts for your tween daughter’s birthday. Remember, gift buying doesn’t have to break the bank; it’s just a case of being smart about how you go about it.
