Most tweens don’t want to be thought of as a kid anymore, but you likely don’t want to think of them as a teen quite yet (they grow up too fast!). So, picking a gift for this in-between age can be kind of tricky. Luckily, there’s no shortage of interesting and completely unexpected things out there that your favorite tween will love. They might not squeal or jump for joy when they open the gift (that’s totally un-cool), but we know deep down inside they’ll definitely be rejoicing.
