Hand Lettering and Modern Calligraphy
Hand lettering, brush lettering, and even calligraphy are super popular right now. I think every teen/tween girl goes through a calligraphy phase, and this is the modern version. Pair it with a nice sketch notebook and brush lettering markers.
Magic Puffy Pens
Get creative in 3-D. These pens have special ink that puffs up like popcorn when heated with a blow-dryer.
tweexy The Original Wearable Nail Polish Holder
Any fashionable and crafty girl knows that art extends beyond the canvas. Make at-home manis and pedis easier with this handy wearable nail polish holder. Want to really impress? Give her fashionable nail wraps or a silicone makeup brush cleaner, too!
and if makeup/beauty is really her thing, you will be a rockstar if you give her this…
Birchbox is a monthly beauty subscription box. For $10/month, she can get miniatures of new and exciting beauty products. I used this service for a while in my 20s (before I gave up on daily primping), and it was fantastic!

This is the perfect new tech gadget for a writer or doodler. This digital notebook can be synced to the cloud, then erases clean after a spin in the microwave.
