Does your 8 year old love unicorns? Help her get creative with her favorite mythical character with the help of this fun unicorn craft kit. The kit includes supplies and instructions for making a unicorn headband, stuffed unicorn, magical necklace, rainbow garland, and unicorn tail.

Apple iPod Touch (32GB)

Yes, this is on the pricey end. However, it is also the hottest gift for tweens (at least according to them). As a parent, I love it because it’s a ‘phone’ without really being a phone. So, they can play games, take videos, and have access to the internet at home with wifi (when you can monitor them). 

If your tween girl is insisting on a phone for Christmas and you aren’t ready for that, this is a great option!
