Holiday Gift Guide: Tween Girl ages 9 – 12

At this category, the girls get a bit harder to buy for.  They aren’t really into toys so much, but they aren’t big kids yet.  So.. what do you do?  Below are some fabulous ideas!

BYOU ‘Be Your Own You!’ Magazine


BYOU ‘Be Your Own You!’ Magazine is a self-esteem publication for tween girls, ages 8-14.

Our mission is to provide healthy self-esteem for girls, with the help of teen celebrity role models, features on ‘real girls’ making a difference, tips, games, and stories.

Mom Says:  So many girls are lacking self esteem these days, what a great way to help them over come all that!  With stories by real girls that have the same issues, this is perfect for your daughter!  Even widely popular girls that seem to be overly “full of themselves” could be hiding the inner child that is unsure!

Potted Herb Kits

Whether you’re cooking with culinary herbs like Rosemary, or just enjoying the fresh, natural scent of our aromatic herbs like Lemon Verbena, potted herbs are essential to your home. Beautiful decor or functional flavors, we offer a wide selection of various plants, pots, and kits to enjoy. With so many scents and styles, these potted herbs make lovely, sustainable gifts!
