Christmas Gift Ideas for Girls aged 10 to 12

 Are you looking to buy a Christmas or birthday gift for your daughter, niece, younger sister or friend's child? Here are some Christmas gift ideas for girls aged 10 to 12. 

I wrote an earlier post on Christmas gift ideas for boys aged 10 to 12 and actually, girls are so much easier to buy gifts for so this will be very much more fun to curate. Girls will be girls at whatever age, there are so many pretty and cute things for girls.

1. 2023 Countdown Christmas Mystery Box Advent Calendar for girls

Advent Calendar gifts are mysterious and fun for girls. Imagine opening a different little mystery box or window each day to discover a cute piece of friendship bracelet, keychain, necklace, sunnies or hair clip. It also teaches kids to countdown and patience to open the box slowly one day at a time instead of all at one go.
