These stylish bracelets are the perfect accessories that tweens will love, and the stickers are perfect for decorating.

Use promo code HIP2SAVE20 for 20% off your first month!

Crate Joy offers a wide range of variety your tweens will love, but BeTWEEN the Bookends is our favorite! This is created by a tween named Jillian for other tweens, so she truly knows what interests her age group has. It contains 2-3 books per month as well as 6-8 additional items that could include beauty products, candy, snacks, and other surprises your tween will love.

Don’t have tweens yet? One of our favorite things about BeTWEEN the Bookends is that subscriptions start with picture books for younger kids and go all the way up to tweens which includes middle-grade novels. Full size and gender-neutral options are available for each age group, while a Mini Box and Just The Books box are available for tween boxes only.


3. Kiwi Crate 

Best STEM box.

From doodling to STEM kits, Kiwi Co Crates have a little something different for every tween by encouraging their creativity! You can filter your search by age and interest, which is super helpful to choose a crate that’s catered toward your kiddo’s interest. Science, engineering, designing, crafts, and cooking are just a few of the choices available for tweens.

Even better, get up 30% off your first box when you sign up for emails, and you can choose from monthly payments to 12-month bundles.

Best cosmetics box.

Birchbox monthly box

BirchBox $13+/month

BirchBox is a great way to get your tweens a formal introduction to all types of different makeup and skincare without paying the hefty price tag of full-price items. It’s something to look forward to every month and, keeping in mind how expensive individual beauty products can be, you really can’t beat the price!

    These are all so cute! I’ve ordered beTWEEN the Bookends for a friend’s daughter and was not disappointed. She said it was her favorite birthday gift! I highly recommend it. I didn’t know they had a picture book version, I’m going to order it for my son!
