Ten-year-old girls are on the brink of young adulthood, yet they still have many of the same interests that they have enjoyed throughout childhood. Tween girls are smart and sweet, thoughtful and stubborn, fun and funny.
If you have a 10-year-old girl in your life, I have some birthday gift ideas that will please most any personality.
Slippers are a wonderful, luxurious gift option for tween girls. Because they are typically worn around the house, you don’t have to worry about getting her “sense of style” exactly right.
The great thing about Fuzzy Babba’s cozy & soft slippers is that they are inexpensive. The pictured Fox Face slipper sock is less than $8!
Thanks to the popularity of shows like Annedroids, overalls are strongly back in for young girls. Although you’ll find them at many stores, we love the simple and classic look of the blue denim overalls by OshKosh. They have a very “Charlotte’s Web” look about them.
Ten-year-olds are definitely not too old for jumping in puddles! A new pair of rainboots is a welcome gift that provides her with both style and function. The neutral gray pair pictured above is perfect because it looks very grown-up.
Unless you know the recipient super well, stay away from cartoon characters, unicorns, and other patterns that could be perceived as babyish.
Water shoes are oh-so-smart for summer because they provide the coverage that flip-flops lack, while also offering easy-on, easy-off appeal. Keen has great options in this category for all ages. There are plentiful colors and designs to choose from, but we especially love the Newport H2 Sandal in Surf the Web (pictured above).
Our 10-year-old is a terrific hiker. With excellent endurance, strong limbs, healthy lungs, and an insatiable curiosity about the world around her, she loves to put in miles on local trails.
If you know a young outdoor explorer, a new pair of hiking boots is an excellent birthday gift pick. We especially love the lightweight, slim, and stylish Kootenay II. The no-tie design has many benefits and the no-bulk fit makes it exceptionally versatile. She’ll be able to wear these in the wilderness AND to school.
What birthday gift ideas would you add for 10-year-old girls?
