A few years ago, I published a one-page summer bucket list that continues to be extremely popular for families, but it occurred to me this year, as I was planning the summer out for my own two kids, that the bucket list may not fit my now 12-year-old as well as it once did.

I think tween girls are hard to buy gifts for, and Christmas is no different from the rest of the year. They aren’t really into toys any more (for the most part). Even though they might acquiesce and play Barbies or Lego with a younger sibling, it’s just not their thing anymore. On the other hand, they aren’t really grown up and still want lots of presents under the tree. It’s a tough place to be, both for the girl and for the gift giver. So I got together with my 10-year-old daughter and made up a list of all … Read more
