Gift Ideas for Older Children, Tweens, + Early Teens.

Tis the season! I just organized a selection of holiday finds here and have already shared gifts for loved ones (mainly focused on women), gifts for toddlers and young children, and will be releasing a gift guide for men and one for babies in the near future, too.

  1. I love your suggestions, Jen, and I smiled reading Amy’s gift list for her tween, as so many of the products (fuzzy socks! Sherpa pullover! Personalized stationery!) have been hits with my own tween stepdaughter this year. 🙂 I also own the Rifle Paper AirPods case with key ring and it’s so nice.

    Also, the keychain suggestion (with a first car key!) made me so nostalgic, as my parents gave me a Tiffany heart key ring with my first car key when I turned 17! It was such a special gift and I still have it. <3 That resin initial keychain is so cute!

    1. Oo I love the Tiffany key ring — so amazing! Timeless. Also, so are fuzzy socks. I think I got fuzzy socks every year of my teens in my stocking!

  2. Just finished shopping for my tween and she’s getting AirPods with a Rifle paper keychain case (which she will use for school), fuzzy socks, electric Razor scooter, sherpa pullover, personalized book stamp, personalized stationary, earrings and notebooks.

    1. Oo such great gifts! Glad to see a little bit of crossover here from my own selections. The keychain case idea for the AirPods is genius!
