Gifts for Tweens {ideas 2016}

Gifts for Teens

Gifts for Tweens

– Romy is 9 1/2 now and I can see that her interests and taste are changing. This time before they become teenagers. This time where they are not children anymore… too old for toys and too young for boys… or at least not interested at all in our case.
And I love this. I love the talks we have now. Her curiosity and personality that takes more and more shape.

When your kids were small / below eight you were usually confronted with many shops, things, toys, accessories and more. Probably more than one can need and digest. And then the overwhelming kids world starts to fade. There is less and there is a little gap for these cute 9-12 years old. But there are great things!

Here is my list of great gift ideas that I would buy without a doubt for my own tween.

For parties I always love to check out Little Lulubel – Natalie has the best kits, inspiration and lots of little extras like party bags and dressing up stuff.

I wanted something a little soft and girly – the Belle and Boo kit is perfect, we just added a tassel garland {that truly makes such a great difference to the set up} and some cupcake liners.

We baked some very simple vanilla cupcakes – or better Romy did – something easy to eat and hold for the birthday girl.

See the happy birthday girl. This is her. Always happy, always smiling – pure joy, bliss and happiness. Amazing!

And that cute little pointy hat… believe it or not… she was wearing for every meal the two next days… love her to bits!

4th birthday gift ideas

4th birthday gift ideas

September will be a very busy for us. Our little doll will turn O N E and just a week later Leonor will turn FOUR. And she is already asking on a daily basis if the big day has come…

When you ask her about her birthday wishes you get a very long description about her cake. At the moment it is a chocolate cake with loooooots of blueberries and strawberries and cream please. On top please!

Craft Birthday party

Craft Birthday Party
I actually did not really plan to write a post about Romy’s party but then I thought that it might help a few of you…

Why?

Romy turned 9! Yes N I N E! Big girl nine years old {to be very honest she did not yet actually… she will in 3 days and the party was that early because school ends in the beginning of June and to make sure most of her friends could join we planned it a week end before the last week of school}

We talked about this party for some time already, ideas came and went away, lets do this, maybe not… back and for… nine is not small, nine is not big girl, slumber party is an idea but most of her friends are not “ready” yet… until I suggested the idea of a crafts party. We brainstormed a little on what we could do and boom! – done… crafts party it is. She loves to make things! Always busy drawing, cutting, creating…

Jaq Jaq Bird

jaq jaq bird - chalk book

With a family of four kids that does travel a good amount of time throughout the year I am more than interested to discover new products that are made to make our days a little easier and especially more creative.

This is why we absolutely wanted to have a look what Jaq Jaq Bird has to offer. Grace, the founder, created a cool range of chalk “toys” – things like chalk place mats & books, waterproof lunch bags & pouches and most of all, she invented dust free chalks that she calls butterstix!
