Before we know it, Jolly Old Saint Nick will be making the rounds again. For many youngsters, the Christmas stocking stuffers elicit as much joy as anything under the tree. Filling the Christmas stockings with fun treats has always been one of my favorite parts of the holiday. To bring smiles and squeals of excitement on Christmas morning, fill your tween girl’s stocking with some or all of the following goodies.
Hair Accessories. Colorful headbands, jeweled hair clips and fancy pony tail holders are wonderful Christmas stocking stuffers for girls ages 8 – 12. Mini hair brushes, beaded barrettes and colorful scrunchies are fun and practical. Whether her hair is short or long, curly or straight, there are many great hair accessories to choose from. You don’t need to break the bank to fill your tween girl’s Christmas stocking with a ton of pretty hair accessories. Check out the stock at your local drugstore or dollar store.
Nail Polish. Tiny bottles of nail polish make perfect Christmas stocking stuffers for girls ages 8 – 12. Tween girls love bright and fun colors to decorate their fingers and toes. Consider adding some nail stickers and emery boards too.
Key chains. Many tweens are responsible for letting themselves in the house after school and therefore are responsible for their house key. Fill her Christmas stocking with one or more decorative key chains. Neither of my daughters have any real need for key chains, but love them anyway. The colors and styles to choose from are endless and they can be hooked to book bags or purses for decoration only.
Stickers. High School Musical, Hello Kitty and Hannah Montana stickers are fantastic Christmas stocking stuffers for girls ages 8 – 12. She can decorate her notebooks with them or use them in craft projects, such as scrap booking. Smiley face, flower, initial and fun sayings stickers are great for all tween girls no matter what her current pop culture interests are.
Earrings. A lovely Christmas stocking stuffer for girls ages 8 – 12 is a boxed pair of earrings. Put it right down in the toe so it is the last item she comes to when emptying her stocking. Dainty heart, cross or flower earrings to wear on the holiday will make her feel special and grown up.
Stationary Items. Little notebooks, multi colored pens and decorative pencils are great Christmas stocking stuffers for your tween girl. These can also be purchased at the dollar store for next to nothing and come in handy during Christmas vacation for keeping her occupied and also creative.
Toothbrush and mini toothpaste. My girls know Santa always includes a new character electric toothbrush and mini tube of toothpaste to remind them to always take proper care of their teeth.
Movie Theater Box Of Candy. A large box of Dots, Junior Mints or Snowcaps sticking out the top of the Christmas stocking makes a fun presentation and is a sweet Christmas stocking stuffer for girls ages 8 – 12.
Socks. Keep your daughter’s feet warm and cozy during winter with a pair of Hello Kitty, Powerpuff Girls or Bratz socks.
Bubble Bath. Mini bottles of bubble bath or lightly scented shower gel are fun and feminine Christmas stocking stuffers for girls ages 8 – 12. Include some pretty washcloths and shower puffs.
Have fun choosing your Christmas stocking stuffers for girls ages 8 – 12 and have a joyous Holiday!
