It鈥檚 tough being a tween, y鈥檃ll. Take it from Britney Spears(ish): You鈥檙e not a little kid, but *not yet a teenager*. It鈥檚 hard to toe the line between being an adolescent but feeling like you鈥檙e ~mature~, so finding the perfect gifts for the tweens in your life is not an easy task. Gift ideas that are undeniably cool and Snapchat-able are key (duh), but tweens also want stuff that no one else will have, so uniqueness is important.
