Valentine's Day can be such a fun holiday for tweens. While many tweens may have grown out of classroom Valentine exchanges, that doesn't mean they no longer want to be a part of the fun. If your tween daughter is expected a little something from you on Valentine's Day, consider some of the gift ideas below. These Valentine's Day gift ideas range in price from a mere dollar to just under $50.

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Girls

  • An iPod or an iPod dock, in pink or red, of course.
  • A Valentine mug stuffed with tea bags (such as Strawberry-Kiwi). Wrap in cellophane and tie with a pink or red ribbon. Your Valentine doubles as a card. Or, consider a cute little tea set in your daughter's favorite color. You can even enjoy a tea party together to celebrate the holiday.
  • A pair of Valentine-themed socks make for a great gift in the dead of winter. Look for fuzzy and thick socks that can double as slippers on rainy or cold days.
  • A box of chocolates, or an oversized candy bar. Wrap in pink or red tissue paper and attach a white bow.
  • Don't forget about lotions, shower gel, and heart-shaped soaps when considering Valentine gifts. Arrange the items in a basket or box with your Valentine card before delivering.
  • Perfume or body spray is also well-received by preteen girls. Look for fragrances that are clean and light, such as Love's Baby Soft.
  • Is your tween daughter ready for her first romance book? The Twilight series isn't the only romantic series that appeals to tweens and teens. Consider a book that offers a little comedy, such as My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison, or the graphic novel, Rapunzel's Revenge, by Shannon and Dean Hale.
  • A list of Valentine's Day gift ideas wouldn't be complete without the mention of flowers. If your daughter loves flowers, a inexpensive bouquet of daisies or carnations might be just the thing. Tie with a ribbon and surprise her with them at dinner, or leave them on the kitchen table for her to find on Valentine's day morning.
  • If flowers won't impress your sweetie, consider a bouquet of red, pink and white balloons. Your local dollar store should be able to hook you up with these, at an affordable price.
  • A good love story is a must for Valentine's Day. Consider giving your tween a DVD that offers a little romance. The Princess Bride, Ever After, High School Musical and Titanic are all choices for the preteen crowd.
  • A special dinner for you and your daughter might make Valentine's Day extra special and memorable. Take your daughter out on a parent/daughter date and enjoy the time you have together.
