Having a girl, aged 8-12 leaves you in an odd spot. These subscription boxes for girls, or even tween girls will be a great gift, and can be done all online. Great things for girls who want to feel a little older, but aren’t teens yet.
This is part of my Gift Ideas for Families Series << that post has TONS of gift ideas for everyone on your list!
Subscription boxes are all the rage — right?
- There’s Stich Fix for clothes.
- Epsy for makeup
- PopSugar for all the stuff…
- Oh, and Dollar Maxi Pad club for…. well, you know. 😉
And your daughter watches you. She sees them all and wonders when it will be her turn.
Wouldn’t it be fun to give her own thing for once? Today I’m going to share some awesome subscriptions for girls — mostly ages 8-12, but some extend later/earlier (and it certainly depends on what your daughter is interested in).
Btw, looking for something for someone a bit younger — I also have the best gifts for toddler girls.
Girls clothing & beauty subscription boxes
The main thing I didn’t want, was my 9 year old looking like she was 15, or worse. I didn’t want makeup or too much skincare (although a bit more attention to personal hygiene wouldn’t be too bad).
I also wanted her to get that “feeling” — the one you get when something has surprises in it. It’s just fun (and she’s certainly seen me open my own fair share of subscription boxes).
I would recommend this for a “girly” girl — where it’s about clothes, and looking cute. If things like that don’t interest your daughter at all, I’d steer clear of this one.
