Valentine’s Day is traditionally a holiday for lovers to express their feelings for one another through romantic gifts. In recent years, the holiday has expanded to include all relationships. Friends and siblings give each other tokens of affection, as well as parents, children and other family members. If you have a middle school girl on your Valentine gift list year, she will surely be delighted with one of these holiday presents.
Box of Chocolates. Tween and teenage girls love to receive gifts that make them feel grown up. This traditional holiday present will surely make her feel very special and acknowledge her growing age. If a full size box of chocolates feels too elaborate, purchase her the miniature size and include a greeting card that lets her know how much you love her and proud you are of the young woman she is becoming.
Heart Shaped Jewelery. Most young girls at this age love any type of jewelery, no matter how simple or how expensive. A gift set that includes a heart shaped necklace and earrings will express your affection for her wonderfully. Take her maturity and level of responsibility into consideration when purchasing the items. Some young ladies take care of expensive items like adults and some have a tendency to lose or break anything they are given. You don’t want to go all out on the gift and then feel a great disappointment weeks later when the pieces are no where to be found.
Add to a Collection. Young adults in this age bracket love to build up collections of things. If she has a fondness for snow globes, animal figurines or magnets with silly sayings, feel free to add a piece or two to her special items. Try to find collectibles that feature hearts, bows and arrows or other symbols of the holiday. Your gift recipient will feel very pleased that you remembered what her favorite things in the world are.
Red Clothing. What middle school girl doesn’t love new clothes? Surprise her with an item or two to add to her wardrobe in the traditional color of Valentine’s Day. You can splurge on a jacket or sweater or go more simple with a scarf or tee shirt. Many clothing chains offer a nice selection of holiday clothing items for less than ten or twenty dollars. If red is not typically a color she wears, choose pink instead, or select an accessory that is smaller in size and therefore less overwhelming.
Stuffed Animal. While young ladies at this age often feel as though they are quite grown already, most still cling to comfort items from childhood. A cute and cuddly stuffed animal that holds a heart or speaks a loving message will definitely be a hit with your special someone.
