Getting an appreciated, memorable gift for your preteen can be challenging to say the least. Their personal interests seem to change as frequently as the market trends these days.

Here are some helpful gift ideas from a fellow media collaborator, Any Birthday, who took the time to share these great gift ideas for preteens:

We feel your pain: Your tween daughter is already cooler than you. So what gifts can you give a growing young girl who’s totally connected, hip, and aware of what’s on the up-and-up? Kids are increasingly harder and harder to shop for, especially as they get older and start worrying about what their friends think is cool.

If you feel stumped on gifts to give your preteen, don’t worry — we have you covered.

Here are 11 great gift ideas your tween daughter will love:

For the girly-girl…

If your daughter loves all things feminine, you can’t go wrong with gifting her a cute accessory. With the weather warming up, this color-changing jewelry puts a fun twist on the predictable necklace or bracelet.

For the reader…

Who doesn’t love Harry Potter? If your pre-teen seems more enamored than most with the fantasy franchise, gift her cool, Harry Potter-themed wall art, so she can decorate her room with something equal parts brainy and beautiful.

For the artsy type…

Gift your girl an elevated, more-grown-up coloring book. Coloring books are trending up and becoming increasingly-popular with teens and adults for stress relief. A bonus? She might actually put down her phone for once.

For the music lover…

She’s cool, she’s glam, she clearly loves her tunes. She’ll go crazy for these metallic, cat-eared headphones, so she can rock out in style.

For the trendsetter…

Metallic, boho-inspired tattoos are all the rage. While she’s definitely (DEFINITELY) way too young for permanent body art, she and her friends can have fun playing around with these trendy, adorable temporary tattoos.

For the summer lover…

If your daughter would always rather be at the beach or the pool, she’ll love this mermaid-themed beach towel.

For the beauty queen…

Teach your daughter how to paint her own nails — and paint them well — then gift her with a few bottles of nail polish so she can start maintaining them. This color-changing nail polish is extra fun for the summer months.

For the cool girl…

This beanie, with the cheeky ‘bad hair day’ scrawled across the front, is perfect for your fashion-conscious tween whose looks are often too cool for school.

For the baker…

If your daughter is into cooking or baking, this gift will help her take her craft to the next level. With a chocolate pen, she can draw out swirls, intricate designs, or even her name, and then let the chocolate harden into unique garnishes for her creations.

For the storyteller…

Your smart daughter loves to play games, which means she’ll love the puzzle game Rory’s Story Cubes. The interactive game lets players generate and build stories.

For the girl on wheels…

She’s got somewhere to be — and a way to get there. If your daughter loves to skateboard (or is even just interested in learning) upgrade her to a fashionable, ultra-cool Penny Skateboard. She’ll thank you later.
