Best Christmas Gifts for 9 and 10 year old girls
Best Christmas Gifts for 9 and 10 year old girls
Tween girls are not always easy to buy gifts for. Many 9 and 10 year old girls have outgrown Barbies and are more into decorating their room, playing on IPhones, sketching clothing designs, and exchanging beauty tips with girlfriends. If you need help picking out the perfect Christmas gift for 9 or 10 year old girl, you are at the right place. I have plenty of unique gift ideas for tweens who like crafts, jewelry, science, baking, slumber parties, sports, music, technology, board games, and more. Truth is that not every idea featured here is a good fit for every nine and ten year old. Some like gadgets and music but have no interest in crafts, others can't get enough of jewelry making, creating, and playing board games. That's why this article is broken down into sections - recommendations for girls with different interests.

Gift ideas for creative girls - Who like crafts
Craft projects inspire girls to think creatively and express their individuality through crafts. I highly recommend the "Project Runway Tapefitti Fashion Design Challenge." 9 and 10 year old girls will have so much fun making up their own fashions using the materials provided in the kit. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and a 9 or a 10 year old girl can work on fashion designs independently.
The finished fashions will fit around 12" fashion dolls (Barbie-like dolls). The kit includes enough materials to make 15+ outfits. Perfect gift for creative and crafty girls who are into fashion and design.
Best Gifts for 9 and 10 year old girls - Who like to Cook
Not sure if an "Easy Bake Oven" is a good gift for a nine to ten year old girl? Most likely, she is more interested in real kitchen gadgets and the real oven.
This Cupcake maker is not a toy. However, with parental supervision, this cupcake maker is great gift for girls who are learning to cook. Fun for Slumber parties too - girls can make and decorate their own cupcakes. Use Regular store-bought Cake Mix - so no expensive mixes to buy, when compared to toy ovens. Pour batter directly onto the cupcake maker plates or use mini cupcake liners (sold separately).
Gifts for girls who like science
For kids who like to mine crystals, conduct fun experiments, and are interested in science, consider my gift ideas below. If you do decide to choose a microscope or a telescope as a gift, I really recommend the higher quality ones. Some of the toy microscopes and telescopes for kids are a real junk and a waste of money.
Klutz Books for Tween Girls
I love Klutz books for several reasons. First of all, each Klutz book teaches a new skill - how to make charms out of clay, how to make friendship bracelets or your own greeting cards, how to make cool face paint designs, how to design fashions, etc. Second, it provides all the necessary materials, step by step instructions, and lots of illustrations. Each book is a unique, and helps girls develop creative thinking. Klutz books are very affordable and make great Christmas and Birthday gifts.
Best Gifts for girls who like board games
"Scrambled States", "5 Second Rule", "Charades", "Sketch it", "Spot it", "Forbidden Island", and "Ticket to Ride" are popular board and table games for kids ages 9 and 10. Tweens are usually into games that require a little strategy, a little guessing, plenty of mystery and quick reaction and, of course, loads of fun.
Great Tech Gift Idea for girls ages 9 and up
If your 9 or 10 year old girl has been asking for an Ipad, but $500+ for a Christmas gift is not in your budget, this new Best Selling HD Tablet with Wi-Fi may be just the right gift. Touchscreen, big library of apps, books, and games, 16 GB internal storage, and so much more! Be Sure to Choose Kindle Fire HD WITHOUT the special offers - the extra $15 Spent will be well worth it!!! Also, be sure to purchase a wall charger - sold separately. You may also want to check out this article Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD for kids to learn more about what Kindle FIRE has to offer.
Popular Gifts for 9 and 10 year old Girls - Who love music
If your girl likes to sing, she will love the SingStand Home Karaoke System from Memorex. It works with iPod or any MP3 device with a headphone jack, has 2 four-watt speakers built into the base, and comes equipped with dual microphone inputs for duet performances. A+++ gift for a tween girl. And the latest edition of "Just Dance" is out with a great collection of new songs rated 10+.
Great Gift idea for Tween Girls
Archery is really big these days. We can probably give credit to "Hunger Games" for making archery so popular. And although many tween girls probably have not seen the movie (a little too much violence for their age group), the archery fever has been spreading, with more girls taking interest in the sport. The bow featured here is a great starter compound bow. Powerful, affordable, and comes in 3 different colors, including pink.
Jewelry and Accessories for Tween girls
Looking for a gift for a tween fashionista or a girl who likes to accessorize? She will appreciate a pair of earrings, a necklace, or a stylish watch. Jewelry organizer is another gift worth considering.
Best books for tween girls
I highly recommend books in American Girl Library series, like the one featured here: "Hair Styling Tips for girls." The books in the series are age appropriate, easy to read, and answer a lot of questions 9 and 10 year old girls may have.
"Girls" Magazine is also a good gift for girls ages 9 and 10. It's a magazine created by girls for girls. Quizzes, embarrassing moments, contests, fashion, and much more - perfect magazine for tween girls. Great reviews from Moms too :) Perfect magazine for the age group and a fun gift that will last all year long.
Most Wanted and Popular Christmas 2013 Gifts - for 9 and 10 year old girls
IPods, iPads, and Kindle Fire are at the top of 9 & 10 year old wish lists this year. Tweens do like electronics that combine games/ apps, camera, and mp3 player all in one device. Not only can they play games, take pictures, and listen to music, but they can also chat with friends using text messaging apps and Skype.
If you are prefer to give Educational gifts, a subscription to Little Passport is an excellent gift choice. For 9 and 10 year olds, I recommend the USA Subscription (monthly and cancel any time, 3-months, 6-months, or 12-months). In the 1st month mailing, the child receives everything in the picture above: An introductory letter, USA Field Guide, USA Scratch Book, USA Wall Map, Disposable Camera & Photo Scavenger Hunt. And in the subsequent months, she will receive a package (1 per month) that will include an activity-packed travel journal, stickers, postcards, pop-out models and access to more information and games/activities online - each month mailing has educational information about 2 states.
