The Best Gifts For An 11 Year Old Girl This Year
11-year old boys and girls are in this awkward stage of life. They aren’t quite teenagers, but they aren’t young children either.
This age group is in this limbo stage of not quite old enough for social media or cell phones. But at the same time, they no longer want to play with their dolls or Barbies.
At eleven years old, you’re no longer that little kid in elementary school. Instead, you have transferred on to sixth grade and are officially in middle school. With middle school comes more opinions, peer pressure, and hormones!
It can be daunting to shop for your 11-year-old daughter when you think of all of these external factors! Luckily, finding the perfect present is easy with this gift guide filled with unique gifts your daughter will love! Her peer group may even get jealous over all the great gift ideas!
Without further ado, let’s go over the perfect Christmas gifts, Birthday gifts, and overall ideal gift for those young girls in your life.
This fully customizable neon sign is the perfect choice for 11 year olds!
The LED lights come in tons of different colors and can be customized to their name or even phrase.
It comes with a remote control that offers different brightness levels for any setting.
My 11-year-old son and oldest daughter have been eyeing the Nike Air Max shoes.
There are a whole lot of different colors and sizes available, so you’ll be able to find something that fits with any preference.
These are perfect for the fashionista or even your 11-year-old tomboy.
I will say that they are a bit of a splurge, so if your little girl doesn’t tend to take very good care of her clothing and shoes, you may want to have a good talk with her beforehand!
This is such a cute bracelet! It can be personalized with their name or a fun saying.
I love incorporating personalized bracelets into gifts because it is such a wonderful way to capture your daughter’s personality.
These bracelets are fancy enough that they can be worn for a special occasion or for everyday wear!
This is an ideal gift for the fashionista in your life!
Whether you are 11 years old or 101 years old, these belt bags are all the rage!
This is another great gift idea where your daughter can show off her style on the social scene. Pack your beauty products, personal hygiene items (if that’s needed), and money.
The best part is you can borrow this bag too!
Not only is this a great Christmas present, but it is also a great way to bond with your best friend.
This photo printer is small enough to take on the go with you. It prints pictures on sticky photo paper to easily hang!
Using a smart phone, your tween and her friends can have a great time taking pictures and decorating their lockers or bedrooms.
This is another good idea for any tween girl in your life. Who doesn’t love fuzzy slippers?
Uggs are such a great brand and last for a long time! Not only are these slipper cute and comfy, they can likely be easily resold once they are outgrown.
I love that they have sizes that are even available for younger kids if you have siblings too!
If you need a great stocking stuffer or budget friendly pick, thinking putty is the way to go.
This thinking putty is similar to a fidget toy meets hide and seek game. Little items are hidden throughout the putty and can be found as you squish and stretch it.
With tons of different varieties available they all make good gifts!
Take your salon visit to the next level. These nail strips are activated with a UV light (sold separately). They act like gel polish and are super easy to take on and off.
I love that your tween can feel like they are getting their nails done at the salon without the big price tag that comes with it.
Plus, this is a great way to bond and have good times together by doing each other’s nails.
A hoverboard with LED lights and a bluetooth speaker! Does it get any cooler than that?
This hoverboard comes with a rechargeable battery for hours of fun.
If it is your first time using a hoverboard it may take some practice. Even with a motorized battery, you’ll work on your balance and coordination.
This gift can be used both inside or outside and is so much fun!
The right gift doesn’t always have to be full of all the bells and whistles. Instead, a practical gift can be some of the greatest gifts because they are used more frequently.
Attach this pouch to your water bottle and never lose your lip gloss, keys, or phone.
What I love about this camera set is that you don’t need to have a phone. This camera is a throwback to the polaroid days when you could quickly snap and print.
I love that there are tons of styles, diy kits, and accessories to go with the camera.
Capture those special moments with friends and remember these times later on. This would make a perfect present for an 11th birthday!
If you have a daughter who is really into gymnastics or other sports, this air track is a great option.
We actually have this air track for our oldest daughter and the entire family loves it!
This is the best way to get my kids to all bond together by showcasing their different moves. From gymnastics to ninja moves, our Friday nights are now on a whole new level.
I love the idea of gifting my tween daughter a journal. This journal happens to be a journal for both moms and daughters.
This journal provides step-by-step instructions for both mom and daughter to input their own writing prompts. Have ever wondered what your mom thought the moment you were born? Or, where would your daughter go if she had a million dollars?
I love that there is a section that is blank for questions. Sometimes asking hard questions can be easier if we write them down. This way, you can keep the lines of communication open, and have those hard discussions.
Give the gift of luxury with these satin pajamas. There are tons of different styles to choose from to match any personality.
These would look so cute for a pajama party and the good news is that they are machine washable.
Hair accessories are great birthday gift ideas for tweens.
I can’t count the number of times I lost my hair tie. With these metallic scrunchies, not only will they look cute in your hair, but they will also look great on your wrist.
I tend to keep our stocking stuffers saved for these small practical items that just make sense.
These Nike socks can be for both girls or boys and are super versatile.
With over 23,000 almost 5-star reviews, these socks are a winner.
I might be aging myself here, but when I was younger, I loved playing Girl Talk.
I had no clue this game was still available.
Not only is it available, but it has been revamped since the 1980’s version!
This is truth or dare with a new fun spin!
Calling all LEGO lovers and Harry Potter enthusiasts! This pencil holder marries the two favorite brands together. You can create your own Hedwig pencil holder and note organizer.
I love that this is fun and practical for back to school.
We love our Friday family game night in our house.
Sussed is a game where you guess each other’s answers. With different themes and questions, you’ll be on the edge of your seat!
This is another great game to play with friends, family, or can even be used as ice breakers when getting to know someone.
I can’t keep track of the number of times my kids steal my Stanley tumbler. I’m not sure if its because the water bottle is mine or if they just want to have a giant tumbler too. Either way, Stanley tumblers are a great gift idea.
You can get some fun stickers to add personal information like their initials or monogram to easily identify their tumbler from yours.
Hopefully this post gave you some great ideas for 11 year old girls in your life! While it may be easier to give a gift card, I love gifting products that are fun and practical. Some of the best toys are ones you never even knew you needed.
If you have a tween girl and plan to give one of these items this season, let me know in the comments!
