Graduation Gift Ideas For 8th Grade Girls

Updated on June 5, 2014

Middle School Graduation Gifts

Find the perfect graduation gift for girls who are graduating from Middle School. I have an assortment that features favorites of girls this age including jewelry, books, DVDs, gift cards,electronics, gift basket and more.

It's such an accomplishment to be able to wear that cap and gown and know that next year high school awaits. Why not make the day even more special with just the right present to celebrate the day.

Hunger Games Necklace

Many girls at this age are very much into The Hunger Games series. Katniss Everdeen is considered a hero and the Mockingjay is a symbol that represents the series. How about a Mockingjay pendant?

Kindle Fire

Kindle Fire HD 7", HD Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB - Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation - 3rd)

This will definitely keep a graduating 8th grader amused. She can download books, movies, games and more. The good news for parents is that it has parental controls to limit what can be done.

 

Harry Potter Collection

Many girls at this age have grown up with Harry Potter. How about a movie or book collection?

Here is a complete collection of all of the wonderful and creative Harry Potter movies on DVD for under $60.00.

 

Gift Cards for Graduation

There was a time where gift cards were rather frowned upon. However, that idea has changed. If a person has a particular interest in something and receives a gift card for it, then that makes for a great gift.

With so many kids being into electronics, a gift card for that particular electronic or game could be greatly appreciated. For example, my daughter is hooked on her Kindle so a Kindle gift card would be a very valuable gift to her.

If you have a daughter with an XBox, consider getting an XBox live card where she can connect with other players. If she has a different game system, a GameStop card should fit the bill. Should you have a reader on your hands, how about a gift card for Barnes & Noble?

Should all of these fail in your ideas, you can always get an Amazon gift card and let her pick her own gift.

Isn't this guy adorable? What I like about this stuffed bear is that you can put in a picture of the graduate, making this a nice personalized gift.

Most girls this age are into jewelry. This pretty jewelry box can hold their favorites including earrings, necklaces and rings.

 

Once Upon A Time DVD Set

Once Upon A Time is a magical TV series featuring some of the most beloved fairy tale characters of all time. This is a wonderful family series and popular with girls this age. Let them relive all of the magic of the first two seasons.

      As I'm not an 8th grade girl, I can't answer that. I can say, however, that this is a great lens with lots of good ideas contained therein.

      Nice choices. I like the Graduation Teddy Bear best. As you have said, you can personalized it by putting a picture of the graduate. And I prefer personalized gifts.
