Gifts for chil­dren

What to give a girl for 10 years?

A 10-year-old girl can­not yet be giv­en an adult gift such as a large amount of mon­ey. And not because she will not appre­ci­ate, most like­ly, the child will sim­ply spend them on some­thing that, in the opin­ion of adults, is com­plete­ly use­less. A girl will be much more hap­py if a gift is cho­sen espe­cial­ly for her: accord­ing to her inter­ests, needs or hob­bies.

What should be taken into account?

A gift is not so much a thing as the emo­tions that it gives. Spon­ta­neous gifts are also good, but in order for the child to feel max­i­mum pos­i­tive emo­tions when receiv­ing a present, it is bet­ter to take care of the choice in advance. And in order for the gift to become real­ly a joy for the lit­tle birth­day girl, it must be select­ed tak­ing into account the fol­low­ing fac­tors.

  • Hob­bies. By the age of ten, chil­dren usu­al­ly have a per­ma­nent hob­by, they often col­lect some­thing. Choos­ing gifts relat­ed to the spe­cif­ic inter­ests of the child is always a win­ning option.
  • Ben­e­fit. Depend­ing on the pur­pose, gifts can be enter­tain­ing, edu­ca­tion­al, edu­ca­tion­al, or some­thing else. If you decide on the pur­pose of the gift, the search cir­cle will nar­row sig­nif­i­cant­ly.
  • Fam­i­ly ties. The girl may be the donor’s daugh­ter, god­daugh­ter, girl­friend. This also deter­mines the appro­pri­ate­ness and inap­pro­pri­ate­ness of a gift.
  • Price. If you des­ig­nate a spe­cif­ic bud­get for a gift, then you can imme­di­ate­ly dis­card too pre­ten­tious options or have com­plete free­dom to choose an expen­sive present.

Present options for daughter or granddaughter

Par­ents always take care of their chil­dren, even when they buy gifts for them. The main thing for any par­ent is the safe­ty of a gift for his child, the ben­e­fits, and even bet­ter — prac­ti­cal­i­ty. Grand­par­ents are often guid­ed by the same cri­te­ria when choos­ing a present.

A clas­sic gift for a 10-year-old girl is dolls. By the first anniver­sary, the girl still does not stop play­ing with toys, and she will be glad of such a gift. This does not have to be the most ordi­nary “Bar­bie” or its equiv­a­lent. You can choose more inter­est­ing options. Now they pro­duce a series of dolls, unit­ed by one plot or based on car­toons.

If a young birth­day girl loves a movie, car­toon or fairy tale, you can look for a doll depict­ing her favorite char­ac­ter. Usu­al­ly such dolls are accom­pa­nied by inter­est­ing clothes and themed acces­sories.

By the age of ten, many chil­dren begin to enjoy inde­pen­dent read­ing. So the best gift option for a lit­tle lover of fairy tales is this is the book.

For a lit­tle girl, you can con­sid­er the fol­low­ing options:

  • chil­dren’s fan­ta­sy: “Har­ry Pot­ter” by J. K. Rowl­ing, “Arthur and the Invis­i­bles” by L. Besson, “Tanya Grot­ter” by D. Yemets and the like;
  • chil­dren’s fan­ta­sy: “The Adven­tures of Alice” by K. Buly­chev;
  • chil­dren’s detec­tives: “Kalle Blyumkvist” by A. Lind­gren, “Nan­cy Drew” by K. Keane, series “Black Kit­ten” or “Detec­tive Club”;
  • chil­dren’s ency­clo­pe­dias, col­lec­tions of tips, recipes;
  • “bad” advice.

An unusu­al gift is not always some phys­i­cal thing. It can be some­thing intan­gi­ble — impres­sions. In recent years, there has been a grow­ing trend to gift vis­its to events or places for birth­days. After all, with such a gift you can get a much greater charge of joy and hap­pi­ness than from stan­dard toys, books and sets.

If you make sure that pic­tures are tak­en dur­ing this event, it will remain as a mem­o­ry for­ev­er.

Impres­sions are not the worst gift option, because the child will receive a huge pos­i­tive charge and will remem­ber this gift for a long time even after the cel­e­bra­tion itself.

As impres­sions for a ten-year-old girl, the fol­low­ing are suit­able:

  • mas­ter class­es on the inter­ests of the child: mak­ing choco­late, bak­ing, mod­el­ing, draw­ing, design­ing, mod­el­ing, and so on;
  • vis­it­ing the water park, pet­ting zoo, muse­um, horse­back rid­ing;
  • chil­dren’s quest rooms;
  • chil­dren’s lab­o­ra­to­ry of exper­i­ments for espe­cial­ly inquis­i­tive girls;
  • a trip on an excur­sion to where the girl dreamed of vis­it­ing;
  • chil­dren’s pho­to ses­sion espe­cial­ly for the lit­tle princess.

For sports girls, some­thing sports-ori­ent­ed will be a good gift: equip­ment, clothes, acces­sories. The main thing is to choose a gift com­men­su­rate with the hob­bies of the birth­day girl. Agree that giv­ing a fig­ure skat­ing lover a soc­cer ball is not the best idea.

A bicy­cle, roller skates, and even a skate­board will be a good gift for a girl who was born in the warm sea­son and loves to spend time out­doors. Accord­ing­ly, a sports lover who was born in win­ter will suit sleds, ice skates, skis or even a snow­board.

By the age of ten, chil­dren usu­al­ly find some kind of hob­by that they try to devel­op. It is impor­tant to encour­age the child’s ini­tia­tives. And you can do this with the help of some the­mat­ic set:

  • for a lover of physics and chem­istry, kits for home exper­i­ments or grow­ing crys­tals at home are suit­able;
  • a girl who loves plants will like a home mini-gar­den — these can be unusu­al­ly designed suc­cu­lents or oth­er plants;
  • for a tech-savvy girl, do-it-your­self kits or wood­en mod­els of ani­mals, build­ings, and equip­ment are suit­able;
  • if a girl loves fash­ion and dress­ing up dolls, you can pur­chase sets from a young fash­ion design­er or to make your own jel­ry;
  • for a needle­woman it is worth buy­ing kits for embroi­dery or sewing,
  • uni­ver­sal is con­sid­ered a set for mak­ing soap, per­fume sets, kits for cre­at­ing toys with your own hands.

The next gift option is jel­ry. If a girl has pierced ears, it is quite pos­si­ble to give her a set of real “adult” ear­rings with reli­able fas­ten­ers. It can be either gold or sil­ver with or with­out inserts. You can choose jel­ry from spe­cial chil­dren’s col­lec­tions with del­i­cate designs. But for now, expen­sive bracelets and chains should be aban­doned. A ten-year-old girl can eas­i­ly break or lose them. So at this age it is bet­ter to give only jel­ry of a sim­i­lar ori­en­ta­tion.

For a girl who wants to mas­ter some skill, a paid course of class­es will be a great gift. It can be cours­es in act­ing or vocals, pho­tog­ra­phy, wrestling.

It is impor­tant to con­sid­er that a ten-year-old girl is still a child. She may give up a new hob­by after a few class­es. This must be fore­seen before buy­ing and be pre­pared for this.

Girls can give board games. They not only con­tribute to the devel­op­ment of the child, but also cap­ti­vate with their plot. You can always play board games with friends or fam­i­ly in the evenings. This will give a lot of pos­i­tive emo­tions not only on the birth­day itself, but also on any oth­er day in the process of play­ing and com­mu­ni­cat­ing with your loved ones.

And of course, not the last place in the list of gifts is occu­pied by chil­dren’s cos­met­ics. By the age of ten, the girl begins to be quite active­ly inter­est­ed in the world of fash­ion, beau­ty, includ­ing cos­met­ics. It usu­al­ly comes from watch­ing mom or oth­er girls and women. You can pur­chase a set of baby-safe cos­met­ics or baby per­fume.

For many chil­dren, a pet is the per­fect gift. But only par­ents can assess whether their daugh­ter is ready for such a gift, and decide whether they them­selves are ready for such a gift.

It is impor­tant to explain to the child that the ani­mal is a respon­si­bil­i­ty. The girl must under­stand that it is impor­tant to love the ani­mal, not to offend and take care of it.

It is unlike­ly that a ten-year-old girl will be able to pro­vide the same dog with all the required care, but she can still do some things on her own.

What can you give a friend?

Ten-year-old girl­friends love to give each oth­er gifts. They are equal­ly cap­ti­vat­ed by the prepa­ra­tion process and the moment when a lit­tle friend rejoic­es at the present. And it is friend­ly gifts that are most often the most lim­it­ed in the bud­get.

The first thing that will come to the res­cue is your own hands. You can make a bright post­card with your own hands and please your girl­friend with it. This is a banal deci­sion, but even it can be beat­en in an unusu­al way. It is enough to search the Inter­net for inter­est­ing and inter­ac­tive options or pur­chase scrap­book­ing man­u­als with detailed instruc­tions.

If you have the skill of knit­ting or sewing, every­thing is much sim­pler. A scarf, a styl­ish pil­low, an inter­est­ing pana­ma hat or a new fash­ion­able set of clothes for your favorite doll — just think a lit­tle, and you can come up with a mil­lion ideas.

And the best part is that for this idea, too, you will only need hands and some­thing from impro­vised mate­ri­als.

If you have a small bud­get, you can make a friend set sur­prise. But this does not mean that you just need to present her with a bunch of sets. You can use col­ored paper to turn sets into flors, and col­lect flors into a set bou­quet. You can make ani­mals out of “sets” or make a bright poster with your friend’s favorite sets. It is enough to attach them with glue on a large sheet of paper, add decor and pleas­ant wish­es.

A cool ver­sion of a home­made gift is a Til­da doll. These dolls are easy to sew and look very cute and gen­tle. Also, Til­da can be dressed in home­made clothes, for exam­ple, repeat­ing the image of a lit­tle birth­day girl. This will make the gift dou­bly pleas­ant.

How to congratulate a sister?

If the sis­ter is old­er and has a suf­fi­cient bud­get, you can con­sid­er options that cre­ate a cozy home. The lit­tle birth­day girl enters the age when she needs to have her own cor­ner and arrange it the way she her­self wants. In this case, you can choose:

  • bed linen with your favorite char­ac­ters;
  • a bed­spread and pil­lows, if, for exam­ple, a girl wants her room to look like a palace;
  • own chil­dren’s dress­ing table, like mom’s;
  • inter­est­ing night­light.

Sis­ters who are clos­er in age to the birth­day girl usu­al­ly pre­fer fash­ion­able or pop­u­lar gifts. For exam­ple, if slimes are pop­u­lar among school­child­ren, it would be a good idea to give your sis­ter one or more copies. After all, they can be made by hand.

A win-win option is jel­ry, because who, if not ather girls, knows best what kind of jel­ry to choose. Fash­ion­able bracelets, chains, pen­dants — every­thing that the girl her­self likes, who will give this gift, can also be pur­chased by the birth­day girl.

If the gift bud­get is zero, you can make inter­est­ing fig­ures from salt dough. To do this, you need to take three-quar­ters of a glass of salt, a glass of flour, five table­spoons of sun­flor oil and a lit­tle warm water. The dough should be ll mold­ed and not stick to your hands. From such a test, you can make a full-fledged key­chain or just a fig­urine. You can also make home­made chess: mold fig­ures from dough, and make a board out of paper. Anoth­er inter­est­ing solu­tion is to mold a whole fam­i­ly of minia­ture dolls or inter­est­ing acces­sories for the birth­day girl’s favorite doll. Fig­ures after mod­el­ing are baked in the oven.

In addi­tion, you can make a styl­ish head­band dec­o­rat­ed with rib­bons or a head­band with cat ears with your own hands.

When you want to come up with a gift that is more orig­i­nal or inter­est­ing, it is not at all nec­es­sary to “rein­vent the wheel”. A cool sur­prise can be made from com­plete­ly ordi­nary things.

There are entire ser­vices and spe­cial stores where you can buy a gift box. Such a box usu­al­ly includes some cute trin­kets like jel­ry, sta­tionery, and some­thing set. Such a box can be assem­bled inde­pen­dent­ly espe­cial­ly for the birth­day girl, and tak­ing into account what she loves.

You can put in the box:

  • bright socks or tights;
  • girls favorite sets;
  • note­book with a cool design;
  • col­or­ing book;
  • felt-tip pens, pen­cils, paints;
  • cute pens;
  • a sim­ple pen­cil with a sharp­en­er and bright design;
  • a mug with an unusu­al print;
  • dried flors for entourage;
  • chil­dren’s cos­met­ics;
  • bijouterie;
  • a head­band with flors, ears, bows or a uni­corn horn;
  • cool key chains or small fig­urines;
  • small toys;
  • oth­er cute things.

The mean­ing of box­ing is that at one time the birth­day girl will receive a whole moun­tain of com­plete­ly diverse, very cute and bright gifts. The more things you put in the box, the more joy there will be. But it’s impor­tant to pack­age every­thing nice­ly.

Makes a cre­ative gift T‑shirt with a spe­cial­ly designed print. It can show a birth­day girl with a crown attached, or she, but with her favorite car­toon char­ac­ter. You can also do home­made poster with such a print, mug or pil­low.
