What to buy for a tween birthday

Elizabeth has just turned 10 years old and she is no longer a child which makes buying gifts for her birthday a lot harder. Choosing a gift for a tween birthday is a bit of a minefield so I asked her for a few ideas on what would be her perfect presents.

No matter how old you get, stationery is always a great gift and this fantastic range from Smiggle helps to celebrate 15 years of smiles and giggles. The new range is available in pink and gold or black and gold and has a really sophisticated look to it which Elizabeth loves.

It seems that no matter how old she gets, she loves plush teddies and these Disney buddies from Posh Paws are absolutely adorable and a perfect gift for a tween birthday present.

Slime is one of those things that is suitable for all age groups. No matter how old Elizabeth gets she absolutely loves slime, goo and putty. This new Elasti Plasti stretches and expands, you can even blow it up using a straw.

The present that tweens want the most is technology and Elizabeth is no exception. The RCA Saturn 10 Pro from Venturer is the perfect gift for a tween birthday. This 10-inch android tablet has 32GB of storage and runs on runs on Android 6.0 with a 1.3Ghz processor with 1GB RAM.  The screen resolution is 1280 x 800 which is great for watching YouTube videos and also for playing various apps or even creating a presentation for school. The Saturn 10 Pro comes with a detachable keyboard that attaches magnetically so it can be used as a tablet or transformed into a laptop, making it the perfect technology for a tween who wants to have lots of fun and who has lots of homework.

Buying gifts for a tween birthday can be a real minefield and it can also be expensive but if you try to think of the tweens likes and dislikes as well as the practical things you can buy for them I am sure you will find the perfect gift.
