5 Life Changing Holiday Gifts for Tweens!
Tween age girls, certainly aren’t the easiest age to buy for! Hopefully, this guide will give you some inspiration for the upcoming holidays.
Aziam yoga dolls~ Move over barbie, a new doll is here and she is inspiring girls to be who they are. In addition to the yoga doll, the collection features other girls with healthy habits such as healthy cooking and meditation. These dolls are meant to promote healthy habits in young girls and help them live their dreams. Each doll comes with a storybook and the proceeds go to causes related to the doll’s message. I love the story behind these dolls, you can check it out here.
BendiGirl Yoga DVD~ Designed to make movement fun and engaging, my BendiGirl DVD is a great gift for the tweens in your life. Do it together to forge a fitness bond and this gift will be even more meaningful. Exercise helps build confidence and a positive body image, combatting the detrimental effects of typical media today.
Misfit activity tracker~Your girl is sure to love this brightly colored activity tracker. It comes in two versions, the flash and the shine, so you can choose the one to match your price point. The variety of colors and accessories make it cute and easy to pair with any personality. Learning to monitor her fitness habits at a young age will set her up for success her entire life. Pick yours up from Target.
Healthy cookbook~I remember falling in love with cooking and baking in my tween age years, thanks to my Grandmother Frances. Back then, we were using Betty Crocker and The Joy of Cooking to bake pies and make meatloaf. Now a days, there is a whole new breed of cookbooks that encourage a healthy lifestyle. Tweens can really learn to cook and eat delicious, nutritious meals from these. One of my favorites for the tween generation is Simple Green Smoothies. The website is great and the smoothies and other recipes are a great introduction to making your own healthy meals. So many tweens are on the go, so these are easy and quick to make too.
Activity lessons~ Ballet, boxing, horseback riding or yoga. A package of lessons will help get your girl moving, empower her to try new things, and may teach her a life skill she brings with her forever, developing her passions in life. Check your local community education, gyms or school for offerings in your area.
Tweens are at one of the most influential periods in their childhood. If you can foster growth, confidence and steer them on a path for health and wellness at a young age, you may just alter their life.
