December has arrived and the Christmas season of 2017 is in full swing. Have you crossed some items off the kid’s lists during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but are still looking for that special gift for the tween girl in your life?.

Take a look at the list below for some of our favorites and some new finds that will be under the Christmas tree this year. Click (or tap) on the photo for details, prices, and shipping info.
