Why not buy for the gift card with the 12-year-old?
A good Christmas present for a 12-year-old girl can be clothing. A stylish top with unicorns, flowers, or sequins. Why not a woolly mousetrap?
When I buy clothes at Christmas for my daughter, I usually take her to a big store, picking on me the clothes we both like in her size. Then I park her in the dressing room, and she gets to try all the garments. Those who get wrong, I must go and hang back. Then I stand there with a shopping bag for hundreds of dollars with beautiful clothes that fit. Then the daughter may leave the shop. Now I choose what I want to buy from the approved pile. That way, she does not know what she will receive in Christmas, but what she gets has been approved in the hard control. She tends to choose only tops (after all, they are beautiful as well). But when I get a moment with the clothes pile, I can make sure she also gets pants and other things that aren’t as fun to choose.
Educational gifts for a 12-year-old
A perfect Christmas gift for 12-year-olds is knowledge gadgets. Nuty games, knowledge enhancement, or IQ puzzle.
Robot as a Christmas gift to a 12-year-old
I am a little craving to buy a programmable robot for my daughter. I think things like that have to be encouraged. The robot looked like a round ball only. Unfortunately, the robot turned out to be very expensive ($120) had been affordable. But 12-year-olds want many Christmas presents. That’s why I put this robot aside for so long. It might be some other time during the year. But right now it was getting a little too expensive anyway. The robot I saw (not sure where to go now) was water-resistant. You could use it as an engine for vehicles you built-in, eg. Meccano, you could use the robot when painting. And not least, the child had to learn programming under fun forms. Using their iPad, they pulled out components that symbolized what the robot would do. In the movie I saw, both children and educators were utterly lyrical.
Mobile phone and accessories as a Christmas gift to a 12-year-old
If the 12-year-old has not already received a mobile phone, it is at the top of the wish list this Christmas. Having your phone is super important. It does not have to for a NY mobile phone. Ask around in the acquaintance circle. Maybe something has changed and has a decent new, used phone over. For the mobile, it is good to have a beautiful mobile shell, headphones, iPhone phones, and refueling of the prepaid card.
Christmas present for 12-year-old girls
At this age, it is often very different between what boys and girls wish for Christmas. Good Christmas presents for 12-year-old girls are usually cute things like pandas, unicorns, etc.
Something quite typical of 12-year-olds is the total lack of understanding of the value of money. I had received huge wish lists from my children just when they were around the age of 12. One year, I enjoyed counting on the cost of fulfilling all the wishes on the wish list. It was up to around $3000 with a little quick estimate. These huge wish lists that appeared before Christmas have, as they are, diminished a bit over the years.
Christmas presents for a 12-year-old girls must not be childish
When buying a Christmas present for a 12-year-old girl, it is also essential to consider that the Christmas gift does not become too childish. If you do not know the 12-year-old girl so well, avoid the “childish” Christmas presents among my suggestions. I remember so well a Christmas present that was utterly wrong. That’s when I, as a 13-year-old, received a doll from Dad at Christmas. I wanted makeup and clothes, but Dad gave me a doll. I had stopped playing with toys when I was seven years old. I thought I’d get something beautiful, but then it was a DOLL!! Dad had no control over what was childish and not. If you are unsure what exactly the girl you are going to buy Christmas presents for like and what she wants, avoid dolls, teddy bears, and other things that can be perceived as childish.
12-year-olds want unicorns
Unicorns – why exactly unicorns have become so immensely popular Christmas presents among 12-year-old girls I do not know. But unicorns are very much appreciated, and they are found like all sorts of gadgets, such as mugs, unicorns like power bank, slippers, clothing, candy-boxing unicorns, unicorns, unicorn lights, cuddly animals in the form of unicorns. A pair of warm unicorn floras is a great Christmas present for a 12-year-old girl. And most of all, of course, they want to wear unicorn clothes. Almost all 12-year-old girls wish for unicorns at Christmas. And just so you know, unicorns are NOT childish but magical.
In addition to unicorns, it is widespread for 12-year-old girls to want flamingos in Christmas presents, perhaps as sled or neon lights.

Good Christmas presents for 12-year-olds who already have everthing
I feel that children of that age have far too many things already. They have so many things that they often have trouble keeping things in order. I have started giving Christmas gift shares to my 12-year-old daughter. Instead of stuff, she gets some shares in, eg. Cloetta, HM, Swedbank. The important thing here I think is that it is a share that she understands what the company does.
