Twelve years ago today, there were numerous babies born in our town. How do I know? Because in the 19 hours I labored with my daughter, several new parents seemed to sweep in and out of the delivery room in warp speed. Apparently my daughter was comfy and cozy right where she was, hmmm…maybe that explains why she can sleep until 11 most days!
We often feature great ideas for kids and teens, but today seemed like a great day to let a “tween” tell us her favorite gift ideas!
Here are 6 favorites (and reasons why) from my 12 year-old daughter.
Hat Pouches: I use it to carry ear-buds, lip balm, and my school ID. And I can clip it to my backpack, throw it in my big purse, or just carry it.
Organic Milk Chocolate Squares: Ummm…do I really have to explain this one?!
Panda Backpack: I use this all the time for going to the pool to carry my goggles, sunscreen, and a snack. And I usually pack it full of magazines and nail polish when I’m going to my friend’s house.
Banana Paper Journal: My friends and I like collecting all of the different notebooks. If I had to pick a favorite? I’d say the flower.
SpaRitual Nail Polish: Um, yeah, I have a lot of nail polish (*mom note- she changes polish colors more than anyone I’ve ever known!). Silver, blue, sometimes red and black if the Blackhawks or my brother’s baseball team is playing.
Baby Buddha Bowl: I seriously use this every day! I like that we each have our own color (mine is Salt Water Taffy) so my brother can’t use it. But, mom knows it’s me though when I forget to put it in the dishwasher.
There you have it, great gifts for teens and tweens from a newly 12 year old!
