What Are The Best Gifts For An 11 Year Old Girl?

11 years old!  Another year into the preteens or tweens (some people have said)!  She is getting older and more independent.  These are the Golden years before she becomes an independent teenager and becomes less reliant on adults.  Her likes and dislikes are even more distinct than the years before.  With this being said, sometimes it can be difficult to buy for an 11 year old girl.

Here Are A few Ideas To Help You Choos The Best Gifts For An 11 Year Old Girl


Tablet Or I-Pad

Some children at this age already have a phone, but it is best to start them off with a tablet or I-pad.  This helps them get used to smartphone like technology without the heavier responsibility of an expensive phone.  A tablet or I-pad also provides access to homework assignments that may be online.  With an 11 year old girl soon entering middle school, homework may become a regular thing.  Just make sure, if you are not the parent, to ask approval first.  You may never know, the parents may have already bought her one.

Trampolines are great for this age.  Girls are growing constantly and need an outlet to expend their energy.  Plus, it is a great way to have slumber parties on a nice Spring or Fall night.  An 11 year old girl can invite her friends over, and they can all sleep out on the trampoline.

String Lights

A great, simple gift for 11 year old girls is string lights.  She can hang it up in her room to give it a personalized look.  There are many types of string lights.  You can get shower curtain style, regular string lights, ones that change colors, or string lights shaped as stars or hearts or bulbs.  She can hang it up in a way where she can hang photos from it (this is a common use of this product).

Polaroid Camera

Girls are really into capturing the moment so a camera is a great way to give her just that.  Even if she already has technology to take pictures, a polaroid camera offers an instant print of a picture so 11 year old girls can hang up those silly and cute pictures on their walls, lockers, and other places.  Plus it’s nice for the younger generation to get a taste of old fashion items!

Bluetooth Speaker Lamp

Young 11 year old girls love music.  Some love playing music when they go to bed.  A Bluetooth Speaker Lamp provides a way to play their music as well as provide light when they are winding down to go to sleep.  Most lamps have different color settings that your 11 year old can choose from.  Some even have timers to turn off after a specific time.  A lamp with this perk is best so when she falls asleep, the music doesn’t play throughout the night.

Money Or Gift Cards

If you’re strapped for time and just really don’t know what to get an 11 year old girl, money or gift cards are always a good go-to gift.  Get a gift card to her favorite store so she can get what she wants.  If you do not know her favorite store, give her some cash.  Maybe she wants to spend it on something specific or maybe she wants to save up.  

An Outing

If your 11 year old has everything and you want to make a day to remember, go out and celebrate her special day.  There are many things you can do with her and her friends so that she remembers what a blast it was.  You can take her to the movies, the skating rink, or maybe there is an event happening in town she is interested in.  Surprise her.  Show her you know what she likes by giving her a day out to splurge a little with friends!

What Do 11 Year Olds Like?

Anything above an 11 year old will like.  This is the age where they are still like the little things but are starting to gain a little more independence.  11 year old girls like to be creative and are often into creating stuff like the charm bracelet kit or similar crafts.  But each girl is unique and sometimes you will get a girl who would rather go out and play sports than be crafty.

Should An 11 Year Old Girl Have A Phone?

At this age, an 11 year old doesn’t “need” a phone but may “want” a phone.  It is best to provide a tablet first and then a phone but if your child is in extracurricular, you may want her to have a phone.  In the end, the decision comes down to what you think your child can handle or be responsible for.  Just be careful with the applications that may be on any smart device because there are predators.

If you get your 11 year old a phone, it may be best to get a used phone or an older model.  Phones are expensive and it is a big responsibility to have one.  Some of the newer phones can break easy or must be replaced if certain parts of it breaks (like the I-phone XR, break the glass on the back and you have to replace the whole thing).  Both androids and I-phones have screen time controls if you want to limit any applications on your child’s phone.

Many of these gifts are popular for 11 year old girls but only you know what the best gift for yours is.  Do a little research and see what she will enjoy the most.  Maybe she wants a science kit instead of a charm bracelet.  Like I said before, each girl is unique with specific likes and dislikes.
