     Don’t be caught out this year with a panic-induced Christmas Eve dash. This year gifts for your daughter will be wrapped and ready by the time the elves come a-knocking. But what do you buy an almost teenage girl I hear you cry? Your tween is at that ‘difficult’ age. Part little girl, part teenager. This hybrid stage is tricky to judge.
So we’ve given you a selection of Christmas ideas for a 12-year old girl that will satisfy even the pickiest of princesses.
Get Switched on to Video Games
     Computer games have been the staple present for many years now. As all moms and dads know, choosing can be an onerous task. It goes without saying that the content and theme of video games needs to be suitable for her age. Pick a title that matches her skill level too. She wants to be challenged without becoming frustrated. Too easy, she’ll feel like a baby. Too hard, and she simply won’t play it again. Be guided by theme. For example, if she’s into horses or football, use that interest to guide your selection. 
Indulge her Inner Bookwork
Thanks to Harry Potter, books have taken on a whole new persona. No longer consigned to the ‘nerdy’ pile of presents, reading has become cool. When it comes to titles for tween bookworms, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Again, pick a book that is at the right level for her abilities. Bestselling children’s authors know how to write for their audience. Many bookshops helpfully shelve children’s titles in order of age. Recommendations online and by talking to other parents will help you pick the ideal book.
Treat her like a Lady
If your daughter is a girly-girl who enjoys dressing up, then a few well-placed trinkets in her stocking are sure to please! Costume jewellery is an expensive way to help her feel all grown up. Bracelets, bangles and headbands each make for sparkly stocking-fillers. Mix and match to show her you’re a trendy oldie with a finger on the fashion pulse!
Keep her Active
For girls who prefer outdoor activities over dressing up, sporting equipment is a fail-safe option. Encourage her favourite hobby with new equipment. From bikes to basketball nets, there is a range of options suitable for all budgets.
Help Her Keep Track of Time
Ensure your daughter has no excuse for being late for school! Buy her a funky watch or alarm clock to make her responsible for her timekeeping. Loosen the reins a little by demonstrating you trust her to manage her schedule.

ook is one idea to support her hobby. Or any number of small, safe kitchen tools will set her up as the new baking queen.
As Frozen continues to melt the hearts of little princesses, the almost teenage girl is looking for something a lot hotter!

Video games have become the number one choice for screen entertainment, surpassing TV/DVD viewing and movie-going. According to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, 99% of boys, ages 12-17 and 94% of girls in the same age range play video games, many online and often unsupervised.
