Gifts for children
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;
- 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.
