Next to a step dad, we'd say finding great gifts for tweens is probably the hardest thing to do every year. We consider ourselves seasoned shoppers, and the most trying presents to have to buy are the gifts we have to buy for the 9-12 year old crowd.

Buying gifts for tweens comes with its own special subset of rules that you should keep in mind. First, don't buy them anything you wouldn't have played with at that age. Secondly, and most importantly, make sure you don't buy them something that's aimed at the younger crowd; sure, Fingerlings are on just about every list of 2018's best toys, but they're aimed at a younger age than the tween crowd. That would be the biggest mistake you could make, and it would lead to a disappointing holiday for your inbetweener.

Third, stay away from clothes and opt for gift cards instead (you can find many gift card options here). Sure, you might love the cashmere sweater look, and I'm sure it looks nice on your kid, but they're incredibly picky at this age, and if you want to avoid that disappointment, pick them up a gift card to their favorite store (one you know they'd actually wear stuff from).

If you're in the same boat, we've come to help you find the best toys for the tween in your life. Whether they're into music, video games, tech, or fun games to play with their friends, the list below is filled with great ideas to get that name crossed off of your list this year.
