Finding a great gift for the little girls in your life can be challenging as there are so many options that one can get easily confused. From dolls to pop-up tents, girls can be hard to please and your gift might lie unused if it is not selected according to the age of the girl. Girls are also a lot choosier so you have to select a gift very carefully.
While it is definitely a lot better that there are so many choices, some gifts might not work as well as you thought they would as the little girl might not find it pretty enough to play with. We have compiled a list of 90 gifts categorized by age of 1 year to teenage girls to help you find that perfect present for the lovely princesses in your life. You might have a few doubts regarding selecting gifts for girls so here are some of those doubts answered before we take you on to this exhaustive list of amazing gifts for the girls in your life:
Which gifts are considered appropriate for girls?
Selecting a gift for a little girl does not mean you have to give her something pink or something with a doll. Girls are conquering so many milestones these days and it is very important to make them feel aware of their willpower and resilience from a very young age. Gone are the days when a pink doll would make a girl happy and here are some really fun and unique gift categories that you can go through as these gifts are loved by girls these days:
- Plush Toys & Animal Figurines
- Dollhouses And Activity Dolls For Pretend Play
- Sensory Books & Story Books
- Bikes & Walkers
- Bath Time Toys
- Music And Light – Based Activity Toys
- DIY Art & Craft Supplies
- Blocks & Puzzles
What are the factors that you need to consider while buying gifts for girls?
It is advised to ask the parents first if you are going for a gift that might affect their life and which might not be preferred by everybody. Gifts for girls are relatively low on noise and do not create a lot of clutter. You always need to keep in mind that not all girls like dolls and colors. Some might also love an action figure or a pair of skates. Here are some other factors that you should consider:
- Never gift toys with small parts to children under the age of three as they can pose a choking hazard and can endanger the life of children.
- Sort gifts by the age of the girl as their interests change very frequently and some gift which they loved one year ago might not feature on their favourites list this year.
- Choose a gift which lets the girl enjoy herself and be comfortable with her identity. This includes dolls of color and unisex scientific toys that challenge their intellectual ability.
- Go for toys or books that are not very elaborate or expensive as children have a very limited attention span and elaborate toys will only make them leave the whole assembly in the middle.
- Do not gift toys that take up a lot of space. Not everybody’s house is big enough to hold a large tent or an inflatable pool. A nice and compact toy which can be carried everywhere is a good option to consider.
Can I gift action figures and racing cars to girls?
Of course, why not if the girl likes playing with action figures and cars. Stereotypical gifts are a thing of the past and now everybody is encouraged to enjoy the things that they love and feel good about. Do not limit a girl’s development by only gifting her pink dolls and DIY cooking kits which will make her think that she belongs to the kitchen and home only. This being said, more girls like artistic gifts be it related to cooking, art and crafts, or DIY etc so there is nothing to worry if you are tilting towards these type of gifts.
Also, avoid gifting cash to the girls just because you can’t find something nice to gift them as this makes them think that you did not put a lot of efforts in finding a great gift for them. Gifting a thoughtful gift is always better than gifting cash to a little girl who wanted something else.
