What Are Good Gifts To Buy 11 Year Old Tomboys?
Not all girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice, some of them are made of dirt and grime and want to play with slime. I get it. My whole life I dreamed that I would have a daughter that would want to play with all my Barbie dolls that I saved for her and that bubble was burst when my daughter was born.
She was nothing that I expected, she was the poster child for a tomboy – she was outside dirty, making holes in her jeans and getting scabs on her knees with the boys.
No, she didn’t want dance lessons or baby doll strollers, she wanted to go fishing and ride dirt bikes with dad. I created this list of really awesome gifts if you have an 11 year old girl that is the same way.
What do you buy an 11 year old tomboy for her birthday or Christmas anyway?
This gift guide should help you when shopping for a tween girl tomboy because my 11 yr old daughter helped me create it. These are the best gifts and top toys for 11 year old tomboys..chosen by a tomboy!
Steel Balance Stilts
These sturdy stilts will take her to new heights. These stilts are built to last and they have adjustable height for different size kids. This isn’t one of those gifts she’s going to use for a half a day and be done, it’s going to be one that she plays with all the time because it’s a unique style of fun.
Enclosed Trampoline with Basketball Hoop
If you have the room in your yard, this is the greatest outdoor toy for an 11 yr old tomboy. The built-in basketball area makes it a slam dunk for a gift idea. This is one present that is going to keep your tomboy busy and active. Our 11 yr old daughter looks forward to going outside and playing on her trampoline and so will yours.
This is definitely a spring/summer sort of activity but oh my gosh is it ever so much fun. You have to have a trampoline already and this hooks up to it. It creates the most insane water play park right in your backyard and all the kids enjoy it, not just our 11 year old girl.
Slime Making Kit
Not all girls are made of sugar and spice, some are are made of dirt and grime with some galaxy slime.
These penny boards have gained a lot of popularity with tween girls this age because they are easier to balance on than the long boards. My daughter is a total tom boy and she rides her penny board everywhere. We like this one because it’s cute, functional and inexpensive.
Why walk when you can hover? These hoverboards are really cool, when my daughter opened hers at her 11th birthday party all the kids were impressed. This thing lasted 12 hours with 9 kids all wanting a turn, that’s all I got to say!
Action Camera for Kids
This action camera is compact and light, great for a kid on the go. The camera takes pics in the air and under water in the ocean, it’s got a water poof case with it. Great gift for an active 11 year old tomboy.
Indoor Soccer Ball
Indoor soccer is the best with this hover ball. Everyone in the house gets in on this action because it’s so addicting (and we’re a bit competitive in nature). Any tomboy girl would love this to play indoors.
Roger that. Walkie Talkies are really awesome gifts for 11 year old tomboys. The adventure is awaiting them around every corner…
Magnetic Dart Board
This is a cool toy dartboard, no it’s not a real one but it’s great for an 11 year old indoors because no one is going to get hurt and it’s a lot of fun. Everyone in our house likes to play. The darts are magnetic and they stick great.
I always wish I had one of these when I was a kid but they were so much more expensive back them than they are now. My 11 year old daughter really enjoys her telescope, we live in the desert and there’s a ton of stars in the sky. The prices have come down so much on them that we’re able to afford to get her one. She’s not into girlie things, she’s more a science buff who likes the outdoors.
Softball Trainer Net
This! This! This! If you have a softball player this is such a perfect present for her birthday or Christmas. My daughter will throw the ball and field it for hours, no joke. It’s non-stop action and it’s great practice, they don’t even realize how much their game is improving because it’s just entertaining throwing the ball at it.
Every tomboy needs a pair of binoculars, these are small and have really great vision.
Because bugs are life. This particular terrarium is our favorite because of the light and air vents. It’s easy to drop the critters in. Our daughter is a total tomboy, always playing with the creeping things in the yard or on our camping trips.
3D pens are awesome for an 11 year old tomboys, we’ve purchased several spools already because the quality is amazing. It’s addicting drawing with these.
The bomber jacket is an fashionable jacket for a tomboy, it goes with all her best jeans and t-shirts.
This skateboard ramp is great for not only her board but her bike. Set it up out front and fly off it at top speeds into great heights.. definitely going to want to make sure your helmet is strapped on for this one – every tomboy girl with a board or bike loves this.
Tomboy underwear for a tomboy girl! These are seriously comfortable underwear and perfect for her to wear under anything or just around the house.
Every tomboy I know can’t wait to rip down the zip line, this thing is radical! All the kids use it all the time, I have it between 2 trees, and you need to make a brake or purchase one for this.
Install a Rock Wall
Build an instant rock wall with these cool hand holds. There are 25 different pieces to attach to the wall for some seriously adventurous cool bedroom decor.
Kids Fort Bed
These fort beds are good gifts for an 11 year old tomboy because they are not girlie, they are adventurous and they give the room a really awesome look. It’s the perfect bedroom decor for a tomboy and this particular style of bed works with so many different bedding sets and room designs.
This is the best birthday gift or Christmas present for an 11 year old tomboy, the different gym pieces hang in the doorway for all sorts of active fun indoors. This is the greatest gift that I have ever purchased for my tomboy, not only does it keep her in one place but it’s great for when she’s stuck in the house. There’s a ladder, rope to climb, pull-up handles, pull-up bar, hand swing and regular swing – it’s seriously like having the most amazing little gym right there in the doorway of her room.
Huge Saucer Swing
This big saucer swing is a hit with our four kids. I like it better than the webbed ones because they don’t get caught in it and there’s ample space to pile on. It’s really easy to put together and our family is obsessed with swing. The thing holds at least 350 lbs, how do I know? Because that’s the total weight of all my kids 😉
This is a kid powered ride on vehicle that any tomboy would love to own. It’s the best ride on toy I’ve ever purchased for her, it’s still a hit months later… my only regret was not getting her brothers one too…
Electronic Drum Set
Just a rad little drum kit that won’t take up all the space a bigger drum set would. Kids love it, it’s got a good sound to it and if they plug headphones in it – it’s quiet while they play!
These are the coolest drumsticks even if you aint got a pair of drums. Hit them against any surface and they light up a bunch of different colors. Everyone who sees them wants a pair of the, because they look so awesome when they are lit up! Really, really unique gift for an 11 yr tomboy that she will love.
Guinness Book of Records
These record books make the best birthday and Christmas gifts because tween girls this age love them. They’re loaded with facts that will leave them buried in this book for hours. This is one book that makes a good gift for a tomboy, especially if you don’t want to buy toys.
What Do You Buy An 11 Year Old Tomboy?
Shopping for a tween girl can be tough, especially if she’s not the girly type like most. That’s why I wanted to make this list because I know that it’s hard when your daughter or grand daughter isn’t into the “girls” stuff that you find on the store shelves. Some other ideas would be crafts, camping gear, fishing gear, hiking stuff… anything for the outdoors that will keep her active.
