10 Best Birthday Gifts For 12 Year Old Girls

Think it’s easy to get a 12-year-old girl a birthday present, is it? Well, it’s not. It can only be easy to get a girl a gift when she’s given you a list of things she wants. There are certain things you might want to keep in mind when buying her one. Is she too choosy, or settles for anything? Is she the type who loves to dress up and apply nail polish (because that’s the only piece of makeup a 12-year-old is allowed at that age) and go for all the birthday parties or is she the type who doesn’t care about nail polish at all and loves to stay under the blanket and read a book?

Here are some ideas which might help you buy a birthday gift for your daughter, friend, niece or grand-daughter!

5. Personal Diary or Scrapbook

A personal diary is one of the best gifts you can give them. Give them a personal diary and encourage them to journal their thoughts as journaling helps understand their internal landscape. The more they write, the more they understand themselves and other people!

You can also replace that diary with a scrapbook where they can stick lots of travel pictures and get them to write a little something about their trip!
