Gifts For A 12 Year Old Girl

If you know, have or maybe are a 12 year old girl, then you may also be looking for some gift ideas for a 12 year old girl.

12 is fun age to buy for, but it can also be a little confusing especially for grandparents and godparents who have no idea what a 12 year old is interested in.

And even though you may have been a 12 year old girl at some point in your life, times do change and what was popular with young girls 20 years ago isn't likely to be popular today.

So if you have no idea, or just need a few tips and ideas this gift buying guide will help to get you started.


Video Games For Girls

A lot of girls like to play video games so she probably already has a game system like the Nintedo Wii and or hand-held game system like the Nintendo DSi.

Although you can always find exceptions like the Mario Kart game, boys usually prefer action games and girls like games like Style Savy that focus on style, fashion and makeup as well as friendship and relationships,

To the right you will find a list of games and game players popular with girls in the 8-14 year old age rang. The games like Style Savy and Imagine Fashion Party focus more on fashion and beauty, The Pajamas Girls Charm Party game deals with fashion and beauty as well as friendship. The We Cheer2 game is more exercise orientated and Mario Kart is just a fun racing game that most anyone can enjoy.

Twilight Gifts For Girls

A lot of girls are into the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer, in fact you probably won't find many girls who don't love Twilight. This of course always makes Twilight a good choice when you're looking for a special gift for a girl.

When looking for a Twilight themed gift you will find tons of merchandise available like t-shirts, jewelry,jewelry boxes, key chains, books, posters, pictures, puzzles, pillows and even fleece blankets all of which can be found at the Twilight Store on Amazon. Unfortunately because of a lack of space I can only profile just a few of the many popularTwilight gifts available.

Like this Ultimate Twilight Collectors Gift Set which makes an awesome gift for Twilight fans.

The set of four movie posters from the film Twilight New Moon makes the perfect gift for Twilight Fans.

Be sure to check out the Twilight New Moon metal Jewelry boxes to your left. These boxes are the perfect collectible for any Twilight fan, and their price will no doubt increase with time.

I'm sorry, but 12 year girls don't like board games, we either don't like them or we can't be bothered. I'm a 12 yr old, well, In a week I am, so I know xD
