Valentine's Day can be such a fun holiday
for tweens. While many tweens may have grown out of classroom Valentine exchanges, that doesn't mean they no longer want to be a part of the fun. If your tween daughter is expected a little something from you on Valentine's Day, consider some of the gift ideas below. These Valentine's Day gift ideas range in price from a mere dollar to just under $50.
Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Girls
An iPod Shuffle, in pink, of course.
A Valentine mug stuffed with tea bags (such as Strawberry-Kiwi). Wrap in cellophane and tie with a pink or red ribbon. Your Valentine doubles as a card.
A pair of Valentine-themed socks make for a great gift in the dead of winter. Look for fuzzy and thick socks that can double as slippers.
A box of chocolates, or an oversized candy bar. Wrap in pink or red tissue paper and attach a white bow.
Don't forget about lotions, shower gel, and heart-shaped soaps when considering Valentine's Day gift ideas for girls. Arrange items in a basket or box with your Valentine before delivering.
Perfume is also well-received by preteen girls. Look for fragrances that are clean and light, such as Love's Baby Soft.
Is your tween daughter ready for her first romance book? The Twilight series isn't the only romantic series that appeals to tweens and teens. Consider a book that offers a little comedy, such as My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison, or the graphic novel, Rapunzel's Revenge, by Shannon and Dean Hale.
A list of Valentine's Day gift ideas wouldn't be complete without the mention of flowers. If your daughter loves flowers, a inexpensive bouquet of daisies or carnations might be just the thing. Tie with a ribbon and surprise her with them at dinner, or leave them on the kitchen table for her to find on Valentine's day morning.
If flowers won't impress your sweetie, consider a bouquet of red, pink and white balloons. Your local dollar store should be able to hook you up with these, at an affordable price.
A good love story is a must for Valentine's Day. Consider giving your tween a DVD that offers a little romance. The Princess Bride, Ever After, High School Musical and Titanic are all choices for the preteen crowd.
