Small Gift Ideas for 11 Year Old Girls (that fit in a Christmas Stocking too)
I created this list of small gift ideas for 11 year old girls because it’s way too easy to blow a bunch of money on junk that gets tossed in the garbage the next day. I have four kids and I used to think, no way I’m going to load up on dollar store stuff when I could actually buy some really nice small gifts that will have an impact.
These small gift ideas are great for Christmas stocking stuffers and Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. They’re really small, fun gifts that don’t break the bank but get a lot of use.
We usually have a few big gifts but then we get a lot of smaller gifts and toys like these to make the bottom of the Christmas tree feel a little fuller at the holidays. Kids love to unwrap gifts and when you get them cool little things like these they can unwrap a lot more of them.

My 11 year old uses this in the bathroom but also outside near our pool.
These fit perfectly inside a Christmas stocking for your 11 year old girl!
Keeping Little Brothers Out Since Forever
All 11 year old girls should own a diary because it’s a great way to get them writing and expressing their thoughts. My daughter loves her diary, she writes personal things, draw pictures and makes wish lists. She’s had a diary for a little over a year now and she loves having a place to put all her thoughts and ideas. If you’re going to buy a diary for an 11 year old, make sure it’s got a lock – because those thoughts are top secret!

No-tie shoelaces are great for sports and fitness. My daughter absolutely loves hers because who wants to bend down to tie their laces? Not her apparently.

5 People Can Listen to the Same Song on the Same Device
This audio splitter is one of the best things I could have bought for my 11 year old because she was always sharing her ear buds with her best friends.
It would seriously gross me out when I would see her hand one ear bud to a friend so they could listen to the same song.
This audio splitter has 5 jacks so you can all listen to the same song from the same device but with different ear buds!
These are great for rides home on the bus when her and her friends are sharing the same ipod. Everyone plugs into the Rockstar and they can all jam to the same tune.
Superior Sound Quality in this Stocking Stuffer Gift
Skullycandy are the best ear buds because they fit so comfortably in the ear. They are sweatproof which makes them really great for fitness. For the price, you get a high quality ear bud. The shape of the ear piece itself is so soft and squishy you can hardly notice it.

H2O Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
A fruit infuser bottle is a cool gift idea that she will find absolutely refreshing in every way.
There’s something so delightful about drinking fruit-infused water and 11 year old girls think it’s really fancy.
My tween uses hers all the time, we don’t buy soda and fruit juices because they’re terrible for the teeth and loaded with unnecessary calories she can get from better sources.
These are really cool bottles, you may even want one yourself after you see how awesome your 11 year old thinks it is!

Color changing light bulbs were a huge hit for my tween daughter. You can screw these into a regular light socket and they light up in different colors you control from a remote.

These little change purses are great for carrying around lunch money.
They are small, zippered coin purses with a purpose – to keep small amounts of money secure in one place.

Small Gifts for 11 Year Old Girls They’ll Actually Use
These are two very useful gifts for grooming. My daughter loves her detangle brush because she says it doesn’t hurt to comb her hair.

Travel games are awesome to give as a small gift because they can be played just about anywhere. Girls love the little mini game pieces in at this age and they’re perfect for traveling.

There’s Always a Surprise Inside These Stocking Stuffers
11 year old girls love to break their own geodes open because they love the bling inside.
Breaking open geodes is a fun little science experiment that girls this age love to do because they just never know what color crystals are going to be inside.
It’s always a surprise to break these open and that’s what makes them cool stocking stuffer gifts because you just never know what’s inside your stocking until you open it. Both have treasure!

Binoculars are probably one of the most useful gifts that no one ever thinks about.
Who couldn’t use a pair to see farther? They’re great for outdoors and girls love them as much as boys do.
They make being outside a lot more exciting because you can see off into the great distance.
This particular pair has exceptional long distance vision for a kids pair. They are shockproof and easy to grip, very small and lightweight – it fits in the palm of their hand.

Cool Little Gifts for 11 Year Old Girls
10-color pens are always a cool gift idea for an 11 year old girl and they’re very inexpensive.
This one is my favorite because of the quality of the pen and ink. Sometimes you get these pens and they just don’t work, but this brand seems to be really good.
This pen over-sized, easy to grip and loaded with beautiful ink colors.
The barrel color of the pen comes in purple, pink or blue.
Her Friends Will Be GEL-OUS of These!
You haven’t lived until you’ve had gel highlighters in your life. You will never go back to a regular highlighter again I can promise you that. These gel highlighters make studying something actually enjoyable – yes, I really said that because they do. Light up the pages with color that never bleeds or soaks through! The way they feel gliding across the page is like silky smooth..
Portable Chargers Come in Handy A LOT!
These portable phone chargers are great for powering up on the go. If you’ve got smartphones, kindles, tablets and other devices for your 11 year old girl, these are great battery backup sources for them. They carry a lot of juice in them and they’re small – perfect to take on the go with you places. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve used ours. Every tween should have one if they have a smartphone because they can’t always find places to charge their phone at school and in other social settings.
Tween girls are tough to shop for and that’s why I like to give SO MANY ideas because they are all very different and you know what they would like best. I like just tossing out cool unique ideas that my daughter and I think of to help others put smiles on their kids faces.
