10 Cool Gifts for Tweens That Are Under $20 (PHOTOS)

Posted by Mary Fischer on December 6, 2012 

giftHoliday shopping is hard enough as it is, but when you take picky tween recipients into consideration, the tough factor definitely gets bumped up a notch or two.

Those pesky almost teenagers can be virtually impossible to buy for, especially since things they find "cool," like electronics, gadgets, clothes, accessories, and the like, come with a pretty hefty price tag.

But don't panic yet -- or at least don't let the idea of holiday shopping for tweens stress you out.

We found 10 great gifts that they're sure to love, and the best part is that none of them will cost you more than $20.

Check out these photos to see our picks for cool gifts for tweens that won't bust your budget.

Chic Headbands - $17.44

The tween girls in your life will love dressing up their hair with these fun headbands.

How awesome is this? Making their own chocolate is sure to be a hit, and your house will smell great too.

Their Very Own Pennant - $19.95

How cool will a personalized pennant look on your tween's wall instead of a sports team's name?

Sleek Watch - $20

The RumbaTime watch is great for all ages, and it comes in a few different colors, so it's perfect for boys or girls. (Ok, so it's right at $20, not under, but that's still pretty inexpensive.)

Portable Speakers - $9.99

Um, these speakers allow them to take their music with them wherever they go. Need I say more?

Funky Bracelets - $7 to $10

How awesome are these guitar string bracelets? Your tween will love stacking them up to create a cool look.

These flipbook kits are a lot of fun and will bring out your tween's creative side.

What tween girl wouldn't love a pair of these Old Navy sequin boots?

I don't know if my tween would like these or not. She does like craft stuff though.

I like the hackey sach. It would make a nice stocking stuffer. I probably would buy something cheaper though.
