Proceed with Caution!

Tweens (preteens) are quite hard to please. So, you need to carefully choose what gifts you're going to give them. And this is true whether you're buying gifts for your daughter or for someone else's. Remember - they are fast developing their own individual personalities at this stage.

Cool Gift Ideas for Girls Age 10 and Above

What do girls belonging to this age group want? Here are some birthday gift suggestions that these girls may appreciate the most.

  1. iPod

    Which young lady doesn't want an iPod? After all, there are a lot of reasonably priced iPods in the market today. Or if she already has one, consider the endless accessories available. Think iPod skins, belt clips, speakers, an alarm clock, charms, and carrying cases.

  2. Digital Cameras

    Every growing girl treasures the friendships she made. And what better way for her to keep her friendship memories forever than by capturing them on camera?

    Make memories and share joy with a Nikon Coolpix L22 and its 12.0 effective megapixels, 3.6x zoom and huge, bright 3.0-inch LCD. This digital camera automatically detects subject movement and adjusts the shutter speed and ISO to compensate for camera shake and minimize image blur. The camera's Easy Auto Mode with Scene Auto Selector simplifies your picture-taking experience by letting camera automatically select the best setting to get great pictures. Nikon's Smart Portrait System will fix red-eye, detect faces, fire the shutter when your subject smiles and warn you if they blink, to get you great portraits. Perfect camera for that blossoming young lady!

  3. Her very own laptop!

    Guaranteed fun, web-safe and easy to use, both parents and kids will surely love Asus Netpal. It has a Disney theme designed desktop and interface with intuitive and fun applications, has robust safety features (white-list for added protection for your kids to safely browse the Web and email, and easy to use and handle with compact hardware design made for kids. Definitely a great first laptop for growing kids.
