It can be difficult to come up with great gift ideas for tweens and teens. My tween girl loves to do crafts and DIY projects, so I’ve created a list of ideas of gifts she’d enjoy receiving. Hopefully it’ll spark some great gift ideas for crafty tweens in your life!
As our kids have grown up (and multiplied in number), we’ve found gift giving for birthdays and Christmas to be overwhelming and a bit of a turn-off. In recent years we’ve begun to simplify our giving, and we’ve semi-adopted the “four gifts” rule: something I want, something I need, something to wear, and something to read.

If your tween girl is anything like mine, her “something I want” list is a mile long. The real struggle is determining what she truly wants and what is simply an “ooh, that looks interesting/cool.” One thing I know that is definitely on her “want” list this year is a continued monthly subscription to Doodle Crate.
