7 Last Minute Gift Ideas For Tweens

Tweens – don’t fret them! If you are needing to do shopping for tweens but have NO idea what to buy them – no worries! We’ve rounded up some great tween gift ideas. Yes, TWEENS can be hard to buy for, but don’t fret it!

Here are a few suggestions on what to buy tweens for Christmas. 

Tween Gift Ideas

Alright, let’s talk tween gifts! From a cool hair brush that detangles to Minecraft gifts, we have a several suggestions to get these almost teenagers (ACK!).


Fire HD for Kids

Like the laptop, tablets have come down significantly in price. Our top pick for tablets this year (for kids!) is the Amazon Fire HD for Kids, why? It’s affordable, comes with a case AND has a 2-year warranty (so if your kids breaks it, they replace it!) Check out our complete list of recommendation on what to buy when buying tablets for kids.


singing machine karaoke

My daughter received a Singing Machine Karaoke earlier this year and it is still a hit. The version we received allows you to hook up an iPad and download songs, which is awesome because the newest songs can be Karaoke’d!  

Purchase on Amazon


Just Dance 2017

Get your kids moving AND happy with Just Dance 2017. The dance moves are insane and it amazes me how even our littles like to play.

Wet Brush


If you have a daughter with medium-length to long hair, you will definitely want to check out the Wet Brush. I don’t know what is so special about this brush to make it have such powerful no tear and pulling hair powers, but I am a believer. I so love this thing that I use one myself.  You can use on wet or dry hair. Check out our Wet Brush Review.

Minecraft Gifts

minecraft band

Both my tweens are into Minecraft. The merch for this game has exploded this year. Check out our suggestions for Minecraft Gift Ideas.


cheap laptops for tweens

Check our list of laptops under $300. While a few years ago, giving your tween a laptop would be absurd, the prices have fallen so much that it makes a great big gift. With tweens, it’s interesting. It’s less toys (if any!) but the gifts cost more. That’s a conversation with them that we had to have, as we have younger kids as well. I would rather spend a significant amount on 1 gift that I know that they will use than buying a bunch of fluff that I know will end up in the donation pile in the next 6 months. 

Stocking Stuffers

Check out our tech stocking stuffers suggestions as these have some great tween ideas!
