The older kids get, the harder it can be to find them holiday gifts that make their eyes sparkle. In fact, choosing gifts for tweens may even make you break out in a cold sweat. (I’ve been there.) But fear not. You don’t have to just hand them a gift certificate or wad of cash. There are tons of awesome gifts out there that even the most picky, hard-to-please tweens will love.
While they may have us bested when it comes to celebrity TikTok star knowledge, we like to think we’ve got our finger on the pulse of what the kids want these days.
Our editors have combed through the internet looking for THE BEST gifts for the older kiddos in your life, which ensures you get to hang on to #coolmom status. (But if they don’t like it, you didn’t hear it from us. Sorry.)
