This highly-reviewed game makes a great gift idea for tween girls.
Your tweens will love this highly-reviewed game made famous by Kickstarter.

Could have used these gift ideas before X-mas. Probably come next year I will be without a clue!
We update these each year so be sure to pin or bookmark it and we will have ideas for next Christmas and year round.
You gift suggestions have been so useful that I’ve referred to them for birthdays and other gift occasions. I would love to see some new ideas updated throughout the year!
That is a great idea. We will try to keep them updated more through the year. We are getting ready now to get them updated for the upcoming holidat season.
Would it be appropriate for an aunt to give the care and keeping if you set? Mom has been slacking in that area…
If it were me, I would check with the mom first. I can’t say enough how great this book is for girls! It helped my own daughter so much.
All the best,
