North Face Fleece - It's sad, but true that a lot of girls this age start caring about labels and brands. They want what their friends have and they want to feel like they fit in. For my girls right now it's all about the labels. The Mr. just rolls his eyes and I tell him to buckle up because this roller coaster ride is just getting started. These North Face fleece jackets are great though because they are lightweight enough to not be too bulky, but super warm and something I'm sure they will wear to school pretty much every day.
Athleisure Wear - Just like their mama, they want to be comfortable, they want to be able to move around easily, and they want to look good. Tweens love athleisure and my girls especially love these capri and full length leggings. They will both be getting a few new pairs for Christmas.
Jewelry Box - They have some special jewelry and they each have a jewelry box, but nothing that keeps it all organized that well and I'm the one that ends up having to undo all the tangles or help find missing earrings. These personalized jewelry boxes are such a nice gift and will be perfect for helping them keep all of their special pieces safe and sound.
Simply Southern Tees - Again with the labels, but all girls this age love Simply Southern tees. There are both long and short sleeved options available and tons of designs to choose from. My girls lived in these this summer!
Graphic Novels - I mentioned these books a while back, but graphic novel are all the rage right now and the Smile series or the Babysitters Club series are ones I know my girls love!
Small Crossbody Bags - Last but not least, a small cross body bag is something they will love to carry with them. They can bring their gum, lip gloss, iPods, and other goodies everywhere they go! We love this pink stonewashed crossbody from Jentou bags. The pink is fun and will match a ton of their outfits, but it's grown-up looking at the same time.
