When you think of 11 year old birthday gift ideas or toys for 11 year old girls, you more than likely think of the latest mobile phone or makeup. However, with a little thinking outside the box, there are some great alternatives to the traditional gifts, not that there’s anything wrong with those types of gifts, but sometimes a little more thought is needed for our teenagers.
When looking for gifts for this age group, there are a few things that you need to consider:-
- Cost – You need to consider the initial cost of the tech of course but you also need to consider if there are ongoing costs and if so what are they.
- Age appropriate toys – Eleven year old girls may consider themselves teenagers however they are not quite there. So when picking gifts you need to ensure that there are no mature themes included.
- “Cool factor” – All tweens have an opinion on what is cool and what is most definitely not cool. Maybe browsing social media will help you to define what is cool, as you want your special 11 year old to love her gift.
