SoundSOUL Bluetooth Dancing Water Speakers With LED Light Show
These SoundSOUL Bluetooth Dancing Water Speakers are really cool and a great gift idea for a 12 year old girl who loves her music. When she connects her phone to these (via Bluetooth) she can rock out with her favorite songs as the sound quality is great.
But these offer more than that. They put on their very own rock show as the water inside the speakers starts jumping, flowing and moving around like it is in time to the music. Along with this are super bright LED’s that make it look like some kind of Lady Gaga concert!
These dancing water speakers are really awesome and something any teen girl would be super happy to get as a gift. Even if she has an older device like an MP3 player that does not have Bluetooth, she will be able to use this as it can be connected via the AUX port.
You can pick from four different colors, so make sure you get the one that goes with the style of her room.
Bed Head Curlipops Tapered Curling Wand
We really like the Bed Head Curlipops Tapered Curling Wand and feel it is one of the better gift ideas for 12 year old girls and actually would make for an excellent first curling wand.
These are really easy to use and thanks to their tourmaline ceramic technology they will really make your daughters hair shine and also reduce the amount of frizz that happens. The curls they get from this curling wand are nice and bouncy and thanks to the ease of use, she will get the hang of it in no time at all.
The Bed Head curling wand has a maximum heat of 400 degrees Fahrenheit and even comes with a special glove to protect her from the heat.
The cable is nice, long and designed so that it does not tangle up easily. The icing on the cake is the super bright pink chrome design, which we are sure she will love.
Vera Bradley Mini Hipster Crossbody
Featuring 6 interior pockets, id window and a zipped outer pocket, this Vera Bradley cross body bag is perfect for a 12 year old girl. The bag is available in many cute, bright patterns and is roomy enough to store an iPhone.
DULLA Portable Power Bank 12000mAh External Battery Charger
No doubt your daughter like most other girls has her phone permanently attached to her hand. One of the worst things in the world is when you are out with her, her battery dies and you have to listen to her complain for the next few hours.
Well with the DULLA Portable Power Bank 12000mAh External Battery Charger you will not have that problem. This power bank when fully charged is packing some serious power, it can actually charge the most powerful cell phone on the market right now (which is the iPhone 7 as of writing) 5 times!
It has two USB charging ports so two devices can be charged at once and it even has a LED light. Once her phone is charged, the power bank will actually turn itself off so that none of that power is wasted.
The small size of this and the strong aluminum body makes it something that can be thrown in a bag as it does not take up much space and it is very robust. It is great if she is going on a trip and does not want to take her charger with her.
This power bank with its ultra cool design can be purchased in rose gold, silver, black, and gold.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera – Flamingo Pink
Your 12 year old girl may already have a phone that can take photos, but the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera is for those girls who want to capture a moment forever as this is actually an instant camera that can print pictures as soon as she takes them!
This camera takes its special film which has the ink already on it so there is no need to buy any ink, you just buy a pack of film. Once she snaps a picture it will start to print almost instantly. Think of it like a more high tech, high quality and a heck of a lot more compact version of a Polaroid camera.
We are sure that she is going to love it and while the camera on its own is great, you have the option of getting different “bundles” our personal favorite is the Value Pack as this comes with a cool case for the camera as well as enough film to take 60 pictures! It really does make it more of a complete gift.
As well as pink, this camera also comes in smoky white, ice blue, lime green and cobalt blue.
Acrylic Painting Set for Beginners by Royal and Langnickel
Many girls love art and this acrylic painting set for beginners is a great way to really inspire your child and encourage her creative side.
Painting can be tough, even kids who are good at drawing can struggle when it comes to painting. But this set really is a great way to ease them into painting. The set comes with ten different acrylic paints, a mixing pad and plenty of different sized brushes to make the painting process as easy and as fun as possible.
A plastic palette knife and a drawing pencil are also included. Plus to make sure your child has all they need to get started they even get a couple of canvas boards and a painting guide to start them off. All of this is kept safe and organized in a pretty cool looking carrying case.
3 Piece Wood Vanity Set
For those of you looking for gifts for 12 year old girls that are a little fancier and high end, you will be very impressed with this 3 Piece Wood Vanity Set.
The actual desk is a very nice size and offers a girl plenty of storage space on the actual desk as well as in the drawer. The mirror is a good size as well and as it can be tilted up or down, will make doing her hair or her makeup very easy.
The bench is done in the same style as the mirror and desk and it has a thick padded seat so she will be comfortable when she sits on here doing her nails, messing with her hair or just organizing her make up drawer.
We really do think this is a great first vanity set and it has been said that even kids who are tall (like 5 feet 11 inches) are able to comfortably use this. So it is going to be something she gets many, many years of use out of.
This vanity set is available in Espresso and white, you can also pick between a rectangle or an oval shaped mirror. Also, it is very easy to put together, even if you have very little DIY experience.
Creativity for Kids Day at The Spa Deluxe Gift Set
12 year old girls love to try out makeup, so if you want to keep your own stash safe from her prying hands, this Day at the spa set will make a perfect gift.
Contains an inflatable pedicure pool, a nail dryer, an eye mask, spa slippers, nail polishes, toe separators and more for a day at the spa.
Fabulous activity for her next sleepover!
Revlon 1875W Ionic Infrared Hair Dryer
When it comes to gifts for 12 year old girls, you really cannot go wrong with a good cool looking hair dryer.
This Revlon 1875W Ionic Infrared Hair Dryer is fantastic as it features infrared heat technology and tourmaline ionic technology. Basically, this means that the hair dryer will give your daughters hair a really nice shine, all the while reducing the amount of frizz that hair dryers are known to cause.
This hair dryer has two speed settings and two heat settings, this means that a girl can find that perfect balance for her hair. Also, the cool shot button along with the concentrator and diffuser attachments it has makes targeting those really stubborn parts of her hair very easy.
The Revlon ionic infrared hairdryer is a quality product and has a real cool design. Revlon is a well known brand name and girls love their branding, especially on their beauty products!
Classic Bunny Slippers
These classic bunny slippers are just so adorable that you may be tempted to buy a pair for yourself as well!
Your 12 year old girl is going to really love how adorable these are, the bunny looks super cute. But as well as being very easy on the eyes. These slippers are also very, very comfortable to wear. The soles have grips to prevent slipping, but on the inside, there is this really soft padding that will keep her feet nice and warm, but also make her feel like she is walking on a cloud.
When it comes to buying little extra gifts for a special girl, you really cannot go wrong with a good pair of slippers and these have that perfect blend of being something that is really cute and also being super comfortable. Plus let’s face it these are way cooler than a standard, regular boring pair of slippers.
Personalized Overnight Duffel Bag
Great overnight duffel bag for those sleepovers, that can be personalized with initials or name.The overnight bag is spacious enough to pack clothing for 3-4 days and has a lot of outside and inside pockets.
Choose from a variety of colors (12 at the time of writing this).
LilGadgets Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Kids these days have all kinds of gadgets from smartphones, tablets, game consoles and probably a few other devices that us moms just do not get! Well what at first glance looks like a standard (but very cool looking) set of headphones. We can tell you that these LilGadgets Wireless Bluetooth Headphones are going to be something your daughter goes crazy for!
These will pair up effortlessly with any Bluetooth device, but they also have a port so they can be connected to a non Bluetooth device as well. However this port also allows these headphones to be connected to two devices at once which is really cool.
With a 12 hour battery life, your kid is going to be able to rock out for a very long time with these. Also as a nice touch a little bit of the proceeds from each pair of headphones sold goes towards anti bullying in schools and we think that is awesome.
The no 1 item on the wish list of 12 year old girls is no doubt a smartphone. If you think she’s ready for one, make sure you install an app to keep her safe and give you some peace of mind.
The iPhone is of course one the most sought after phones by girls this age, but can be really expensive.
Luckily there are plenty of other smartphones out there. Take a look at these bestsellers here.
The Sleepover Party Game
Looking for sleepover party games? This game has got you covered. Includes over 200 fun activities and challenges, so break out the sleeping bags!
LAGHCAT Crochet Mermaid Blanket
The LAGHCAT Crochet Mermaid Blanket is perfect for a young lady who likes nothing better than to cuddle up on the couch while watching a movie or texting their friends.
This blanket is made from some very nice and soft cotton and orlon. But the real awesomeness of this blanket is the design. It is made to look like a mermaid’s tail so there is a flipper at the bottom, she can put her feet in to keep them warm… and pretend she is a mermaid.
It makes for a very nice and special kind of gift as it comes with a bag to keep it in and also this very cute looking mermaid necklace which we feel is a very nice touch. Blue, pink, gray, purple, violet, rose red, green and lake blue is the available colors.
Party Wireless Boom Box by Jam
We are not exaggerating when we say that the Party Wireless Boom Box by Jam is one of the best budget price Bluetooth speakers on the market right now. First of all it looks really cool with its pink and black design that kind of resembles an 80’s style boom box.
With four speakers this thing produces amazing sound and the music she is playing will sound crystal clear. This can run of the mains, but it does have a rechargeable battery inside it which lasts up to 12 hours which at this price range is very impressive.
It can connect to any Bluetooth device, but it has an adapter for non Bluetooth devices also. No need to say that it’s fully portable making it perfect for a sleepover or a picnic at the park. There’s not a girl on the planet who would not be thrilled to get this as a gift!
Origami Chic A Guide to Foldable Fashion
Here is a very interesting gift idea. The Origami Chic A Guide to Foldable Fashion is a very interesting book and something that any girl who’s into fashion is going to love. The idea of this is that they will create lovely and elegant dresses, cool pairs of jeans and other really smart and fashionable items of clothing out of paper.
Origami sounds like it is very hard, but this book breaks everything down into easy to follow steps. Plus it actually comes with paper. Not just regular paper, but paper that is specially designed to be folded to make these awesome items of clothing. If you are looking for a gift that is a bit out of the norm and different then this would be ideal.
Just Dance 2018
Available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo Switch and PC, Just Dance 2018 is the latest installment of the number one dancing video game.
Any 12 year old girl would love to have this as it is a ton of fun to play on her own or with her friends. The idea is that she needs to get the high score by dancing along to some of the biggest music tracks of today. Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and many more huge artists are included.
As a matter of fact, there are over 40 songs for her to get her groove on to. Also as a nice bonus, each copy of Just Dance 2018 comes with a three month trial to Just Dance Unlimited which gives her access to a further 300 songs!
The fact that Just Dance 2018 is available on every game console that’s on the market today should mean that you have at least one way for her to show off her dance moves with this fantastic game!
It’s THE gift that all kids want for Christmas this year: The PlayStation VR. Put on the headset for the most amazing gaming experience!
VR headsets have really taken off this year and will continue to be very popular next year!
Spa Fun Sparkle Tattoo Parlor
Your little 12 year girl, who’s growing up too quickly, is interested in getting a tattoo. Bad idea for a girl this age and not advisable.
Instead get her a fake tattoo kit, so she can experiment with glitter tattoos. And these tattoos wear off, phew!
DIY Wear Infinity Jewelry by Alex Toys
The DIY Wear Infinity Jewelry Set by Alex Toys is the perfect gift idea for 12 year old girls who love jewelry. If you want to keep your kid out of your jewelry box then this might be a really good way to do it.
Included with this set are clasps, charms, beads, cords, twine and a whole bunch of stickers and other shiny stuff. The idea is that a girl will design and make her own awesome bracelets and necklaces.
There are over 30 different pieces in this set and making jewelry could not be any easier. There is no glue or anything messy and putting the pieces together is as simple as snapping them into place. If you know a child who loves art and creative type things then this will be a much loved gift.
Rose Gold Ear Cuffs
One of the hottest trends in jewelry tight now, are ear cuffs. These leaf ear cuffs are sparkly with a bit of a vintage look. The rose gold color is very hot right now.
Oversized Green Dot Bean Bag Chair
We really think this is one of the better gifts for 12 year old girls as we all know they love to lounge around messing around on their phone or tablet. Well, this huge, Oversized Green Dot Bean Bag Chair gives them a way to do that in extreme comfort and style.
The chair is covered with a very soft and durable cotton that is really nice to sit on, it has the perfect blend of stuffing to prevent sinking into it but is also super comfortable and supported. The cover can be removed so when she spills her soda on it, it’s easy to clean up.
This oversized bean bag chair is so comfortable, do not be surprised if you catch her napping on it!
While we love the green design, it is also available in pink, red, blue and brown.
Lockable Jewelry Storage Case
Next on the list for gifts for 12 year old girls we have something really stylish. With this lockable jewelry storage case a girl is going to have a safe place to keep all of her earrings, bracelets, jewelry and anything else that they hold dear. Plus as a nice bonus for you it will stop you standing on earrings when you go into their room!
Your child is going to really love this jewelry storage case as it has nine different sections inside it. This will allow them to keep their jewelry nice and organized. It offers lots of space and we’re sure they will really like that. Also included is a little mirror which will let them see how fantastic they look!
When the case is closed (and you can see just how cool and elegant it looks) it has a latch that can actually be securely locked. This will come in handy if they have any siblings who like to “borrow” their jewelry!
Kindle Paperwhite E-reader
Got a 12 year old bookworm? Give her the Kindle Paperwhite. For reading this is better than a tablet, because the screen has no glare.
Reading in bright sunlight is not an issue and a charged battery will give her weeks of reading time.
Singing Machine Karaoke System With Disco Lights
Here’s on of the most fun gifts for 12 year old girls: A karaoke machine with disco (LED) lights! Plays CD’s or connect to YouTube to get music with lyrics.
Bluetooth or audio jack; it’s all there!
Girl’s Stinger Adjustable Inline Skates by Roller Derby
Roller skating has really come back the last few years and these Roller Derby inspired girl’s Stinger adjustable inline skates are a great way to get your kid skating around the neighborhood.
These cool skates have a really smart and funky design which is something that kids are really going to love. One of the best things about these roller blades though is their durability. With a polymer frame and polyurethane wheels these skates are very strong.
When your kid straps these on, their feet and ankles are very well supported. With a molded cuff and an easy adjust system these roller blades are also very comfortable to wear.
If you’re looking for a gift that is going to get your child outside then we cannot recommend these skates highly enough.
