Whether you get her very first three wheel scooter for a bit of balance or she’s upgrading to a big girl scooter, she will no doubt be keen to get out and show it off to the other kids in the neighbourhood.

Good Christmas presents for tween girls
Below are our suggestions for the best Christmas gift ideas for pre teenage girl.
Oodie – the wearable blanket
Top of the list for pretty much every pre teen girl these days is an Oodie. Don’t know what an Oodie is? Then you clearly don’t have tween girls!
Basically, an Oodie is a wearable blanket – like a huge oversized hoodie – but more like a blanket. Oodie is a brand name that all the kids seem to want, but the reality is that many brands make similar products at a much cheaper price.
An Oodie (or something similar) would be the perfect Christmas present for 10 year girl or girls of a similar age. While you’re there, you might want to grab one for yourself; they are actually quite cozy.

LED strip lights
Another well sought after Christmas present by tweens are LED strip lights. Why do they want LED strip lights you ask? To make light up their rooms with multiple colours – duh!
If this is something you’re considering getting, make sure you look for ones that are at least 5 metres long as most girls will want to put them around the cornices of their bedroom ceiling. So the longer, the better.
The other request is usually one that’s come with a remote so that you can change the colour of the lights depending on their mood that day.
LED Strip Lights do look pretty nice and they’re not overly expensive, so not a bad idea if you’re after Christmas presents for a 10 year girl or a girl around that age. Or how about a gorgeous Christmas candle?
Harry Potter gifts
If the man in your life is a Harry Potter fan – you are in luck! Harry Potter gift ideas go so much further than the seven books and eight films of the series. We have a huge selection of Harry Potter gift ideas for them in our gift guide. From wall art to wands, to mugs, Lego and more.
If you’ve got a tween always glued to their device, then AirPods might be a good Christmas gift for them. Even if the real deal is not within your budget, you can get some pretty good knock off wireless headphones that will do the trick.
AirPods are certainly all the rage at the moment and they really do make great presents for tweens – perfect whether you’re after Christmas presents for 10 year girl, Christmas gift for 11 year girl or similar age.
Whether the tween girl enjoys listening to music in her room or likes gaming, portable speakers are another great option if you’re searching for Christmas gift ideas for 10 year girl or girls of a similar age.
Being portable and having Bluetooth connectivity, they can easily move them around the house, from their bedroom to the living area, bathroom, and outside. Some portable speakers are even waterproof, so they can be used in the shower or are perfect for having around the pool or on the beach.
Some popular games currently on the market include Century, Splendor, Kids Against Maturity, Azul, Sequence, Monopoly Deal, Exploding Kittens and Survive, just to name a few. These are perfect if you’re after Christmas presents for a 10yr old girl or similar age bracket.
SUPs are all the rage right now – it seems wherever you go by the water, there are at least a few people out on them in the water. Tweens especially seem to love them, so a great Christmas present idea for them is an inflatable SUP.
Why an inflatable SUP rather than a rigid one? Well, with an inflatable one, they pack down nice and compact so they can be taken anywhere. No need for roof racks and they don’t take up much space when in storage.
Just like an inflatable SUP, an inflatable kayak is another good Christmas present idea for the tween girl – especially one who perhaps isn’t so stable on her feet!
Inflatable kayaks can be just so much fun! You can get single inflatable kayaks or maybe try a tandem one, so the tween can paddle with her best friend.
