Gifts for the New Year
New Year is the favorite holiday of all children. At this time, the most secret childhood dreams come true. On New Year’s Eve, I really want to surprise the child with a special gift so that the holiday will be remembered for a long time.
What to consider when choosing a gift?
So let’s consider the main criteria for choosing a presentation.
- child’s interests. If an 11-year-old girl likes swimming, and her parents give her roller skates, the impression of the gift will worsen. You always need to give what the child really dreams of, otherwise it is not a gift, but an ordinary purchase.
- A letter to Santa Claus is the key to the perfect gift. It is enough to ask the daughter to write her cherished wishes to a bearded grandfather who rides a sleigh — and the list of gifts that the daughter will definitely appreciate is already in the parents’ pocket.
- Bright packaging is half the success of a gift. A holiday is about impressions and emotions, so you need to think in advance about the packaging in which the gift will be presented. You need to pick up New Year’s craft paper or a festive box.
- You don’t need to give a gift. It ruins all the magic of New Year’s Eve. It is better to distract the child for a while after tlve o’clock at night and put gifts under the tree. This will strengthen children’s faith in Santa Claus and surprise the child.
- The gift is for the child, not for the parents. Practical things that parents will use are good, but on New Year’s Eve you need to give the girl something that only she will use.
Do not spend too much time, effort and money choosing a gift. New Year is a family holiday and it is important to be a family on this day. The price of a gift does not matter if it is given in a loving family.
The best gift for the New Year, which does not require any investment at all — parents’ attention. On December 31, you can escape from the hustle and bustle and prepare for the holiday, set aside free time and go for a walk with your daughter. You can feed the ducks by the water or look at the Christmas tree in the city center - It’s not the route that matters, but the destination.
Top useful things
Below are the most popular gifts for girls 11 years old.
- Sewing kit. To create a hobby and captivate the girl with some interesting activity, for the New Year you can give a miniature sewing machine. Such devices allow you to make simple seams and create dresses for Barbie, for example. If you like the gift, in the future you can do sewing at a professional level.
- dolls. Eleven-year-old girls still continue to play with dolls or build a house for them, so giving a few dolls on New Year’s Eve is a safe bet.
You can choose sets that come with small houses or rooms (kitchen, living room or fitting room).
- Book. Literature is a great gift for any occasion. If a girl is seriously interested in reading, you can buy an e‑book as a gift. Compared to printed books, such a book has many advantages. Buying an e‑book will allow you to create a huge library in a small tablet, and this saves time, money and space in the apartment.
- Diary or personal diary with a lock. All girls like to keep secrets or organize their lives in one way or another. A personal diary in which you can write down your own experiences and hide them from prying eyes is a great gift for the New Year. In the diary, the child will be able to record important upcoming events so as not to miss them.
- Cosmetic bag. 11 years old is the age when girls begin to think about their own beauty. A few simple cosmetics, hygienic lipstick, a mirror — nothing else needs to be added to the cosmetic bag. A cosmetic bag for the New Year will definitely please a girl who is drawn to adult cosmetics.
- Paints, easel and sketchbook. Gifting art supplies on New Year’s Eve is a great way to get your little girl involved in a new hobby.
- Fitness bracelet. The hand accessory not only performs a decorative function, but also has a number of positive features: the bracelet can act as an alarm clock, read the pulse, receive incoming calls, and analyze sleep.
Such a “smart” gadget will definitely delight the child.
- Piggy bank for money. The piggy bank involves the first savings for the child, so its acquisition is extremely necessary. The girl will be able to throw a trifle there, from which a large amount will eventually come out. There are options for New Year’s piggy banks, as ll as piggy banks in the form of animals.
- Case for smartphone. A case is a very useful accessory because it saves your phone from cracks and scratches on the screen. Under the style of the New Year, you can purchase New Year’s designs of covers — winter landscapes, snowmen and fireworks.
- Chest or safe. A small box for storing important things will serve as a personal box for keeping secrets for the child.
- MP3 player. If a child is fond of listening to music, a high-quality player for playing songs will be a good gift. You should choose a model with a large amount of memory so that it is enough for the entire music library.
- Sled. In the winter season, children often spend time riding down the slides. Safe sledges will delight fans of this outdoor activity.
- “Cheesecake” or tubing. The gift has common characteristics with the sled, hover, it differs in design. Tubing — a tire covered with a rag shell on the outside. On the “cheesecakes” you can safely accelerate to high speed, while the sled is associated with the risk of hitting or falling.
- Constructor. For girls, there are a huge number of designers on the theme of women’s cafes and dressing rooms. In addition to the fact that designers with small details develop imagination and fine motor skills ll, they are very warmly perceived as New Year’s presents.
You can buy several small sets or one large one for the New Year theme.
- Doll house. Many girls at the age of 11 dream of a real house in miniature: rooms, walls and roof. Young girls want to equip each room and plan who will live in a particular room. On New Year’s Eve, a girl’s dream can come true if you buy a big house for Barbie.
Original gift ideas
The list of unusual gifts is as follows.
- Ticket to the cinema, water park or museum. Such a gift can also be given not only to the daughter, but also to any other girl: the ticket price is small, hover, the ticket to the event will give a lot of impressions. Closer to the New Year, it is better to choose tickets for Christmas movies at the cinema.
- Slippers. For the New Year, as a gift, you can buy soft large slippers in the shape of an animal. Hares, walruses or lions — cute fluffy slippers will appeal to any person.
- Nominal pen with New Year decoration. You can give a friend or sister a pen with her name: the individuality of the gift will please any girl, and the pen itself will come in handy at school.
- New Year’s passport cover. Beautiful covers for documents — an original and useful gift. In the New Year, you can choose colorful winter options.
- Set of artificial snow. On New Year’s Eve, you can give your daughter a set of “magic snow”. It is a dry substance from which artificial snow can be made in a simple way. Snow will interest the child and give a lot of pleasant impressions.
- Big soft toy. Snowman, Santa Claus or Snow Maiden — it doesn’t matter, the main thing is that the toy is of an impressive size and is related to the New Year. A large plush toy makes an impression and is one of the best gifts for the New Year.
- New Year’s night. There are many options for nightlights that are equipped with a system of different colors: blue, pink, purple. Such a New Year’s gift will surprise the girl and give her a peaceful sleep in warm colors.
What is not worth giving?
There are a number of things that you should not give an eleven-year-old girl on New Year’s Eve. Let’s consider them in more detail.
- Money in an envelope. At an early age, any amount of money is not able to cause delight. For children, money is not as important an attribute as it is for adults. Therefore, if there are no gift ideas, it is better to buy a set present.
- Tol, socks and other accessories. Christmas slippers in the shape of animals are an acceptable gift, but a tol with a Christmas print for a child will seem like a boring and dull gift. Socks are also among the things that are worth buying outside of any holidays. Household gifts also include handkerchiefs, combs, bed linen.
- Pet. Getting a new resident on New Year’s is not the best event. Animals should not be given as a gift, because this is a serious step: a living being must be looked after every day. An exception to the rule: if the parents of the child consciously purchased a hamster or a dog as a gift, since the daughter had long dreamed of a little friend.
- Shoes. Perhaps the worst gift for the New Year is a new pair of shoes. If the child needs new shoes, it is advisable to purchase them not on the days of the holiday. No child will be thrilled with new shoes at the end of the year.
- Bracelets, rings and earrings. A smart bracelet is not jelry, but various accessories for aring are. At such an early age, the child yearns to receive a surprise for the New Year, and not a small box with earrings.
- Cake. For the New Year, a cake as a gift will look out of place. Yes, the delicacy is delicious, but the cake is not suitable as a gift from Santa Claus. If you can’t wait to feed the girl with sets, it’s better to stop at a New Year’s set gift with bright packaging.
- School notebooks, pencil case, uniform. All items related to the school should be excluded from possible gifts. On a holiday, a child wants to take a break from school and get magic, not notebooks.
