In our opinion, tweens are pretty much the hardest group to buy presents for.
It’s just that they’re so…in the middle. Not quite a teenager, and definitely not a child. And for that reason, it can be really hard to know what to put under the tree for them at Christmas.
Here’s a list of six of the best present ideas for the tween in your life, which we found recently while visiting Big W armed with a $50 voucher.
Just as an FYI, you should know that this is an advertorial for Big W.
1. A DVD box set.
A DVD set of the tween in your life’s favourite show is guaranteed to be a hit at Christmas. This Gossip Girl box set ($74) will let them catch up on Blair, Chuck, Serena, Dan and Nate’s antics on the Upper East Side to their heart’s content. Xoxo.

2. Retro radios.
Seriously, how cute are these portable retro AM/FM radios? At just $19, they are a steal. In fact, you’ll probably want to pick one up for yourself while you’re there…

3. Beach accessories.
Tweens are at that age where they are starting to want a little more space from mum and dad, and perhaps even starting to venture out on some solo activities with friends. For that reason, beach games, chairs or colourful towels like these ones by Peter Morrissey ($29) are great ideas for tweens.
