12th Birthday Gifts : Presents for 12 Year Olds

Gift Ideas by Age

What do you get for someone who is 12 years old?  They are almost teenagers and they will have strong interests. Brands matter.

Safety is still important – make sure sport equipment is well-made.

Suggestions: These children are between children’s toys and more grown-up gifts. Books, puzzles and novelty gadgets are fairly safe – or check to see if they have any special interests, collections or musical interests. If you know the child well, you could try giving something unusual to try to spark a new interest.
