Cheap Gift Ideas for 11-Year-Old Girls

Get a great, inexpensive gift for your favorite 11-year-old girl

You may be in search of a great gift for a special 11-year-old girl in your life, without having to spend a ton of money. Luckily, you can find a number of gifts that an 11-year-old girl would love, all at a low cost. Eleven-year-olds are at an age where their tastes are changing from little-kid things to teen things. Pay attention to what interests her and shop accordingly.



Many pre-teens may be at the age where they want to start wearing makeup. Give the 11-year old girl her first makeup set, complete with eye shadows, blusher and lip glosses. You can find an inexpensive makeup set at your local drug store. Add some nail polish in fun colors such as neon pink or glittered colors. Also, include a beauty guide book, like Bobbi Brown's "Beauty Rules," for lessons on how to apply the makeup.


Video of the Day


Get an 11-year-old girl a cute, stylish diary to write down her thoughts. She can document experiences with friends, and favorite things that she can look back on in the future. Diaries are not costly, and can be found at a local bookshop. Make sure to find one with a cool, colorful design on the cover. Add some colored pencils or pens if the pre-teen is an artist in the making, to doodle away in her new diary.


Pretty Pillows

Get her a glittery, colorful pillow or two to decorate her bed. At 11 years old, she wants to put her own personal style into her bedroom. Get her something that is funky and cool, and matches her tastes. Pillows can be found at discount home-goods stores for very little cash.


Fun Slippers

Get some soft, warm slippers for your 11-year-old girl to wear around the house. Choose her favorite color, and her favorite brand, such as the young-girl surfer brand, Roxy. You could even consider some funky slippers with colorful sequins, or ones with her favorite cartoon character, if she still has one.


Teen Magazines

Almost a teen, your 11-year-old's tastes are changing. She may enjoy a teen magazine subscription to learn about what is cool, and the latest news on her favorite teen celebrities.



Your pre-teen probably has a favorite band or singer. Get her some posters to decorate her room with her favorite teen idol. Pay attention to what she is listening to or watching on TV. Add a CD or a music download gift certificate to go along with the posters.
