If you’re new to shopping for tweens this holiday season, allow me to let you in on a little secret: it’s more than a little intimidating. I promise you’re not the only one who’s scared. Tweens are not easy to buy for. After all, they’ll be the first ones to tell you that they’re not little kids anymore, but they’re also a far cry from the teenagers they try so hard to emulate. That leaves very little wiggle room when it comes to age-appropriate gifts, especially when you’re on a budget.
But have no fear, mama. Those testy little tweens are actually much easier to please than you think, and you don’t have to break the bank to do it. These awesome and affordable gift picks are a great place to start your shopping adventures this year. Stick to this list and you’ll have a happy tween — and be a happy mama — once everything has been unwrapped.
