Gifts for the New Year

How to choose a gift for a girl of 8 years old for the New Year?

New Year is a spe­cial time, a time for smiles, good mood, faith in the best and ful­fill­ment of desires! Most of all, chil­dren are wait­ing for New Year’s mir­a­cles. Eight-year-old school­girls are no excep­tion. And although they have already crossed the thresh­old of a care­free preschool child­hood, they still sin­cere­ly believe in San­ta Claus, write let­ters to him and look for­ward to gifts under the tree. Games and fun activ­i­ties are still the most favorite leisure activ­i­ties. There­fore, the New Year’s gift must meet these require­ments.

What to give an 8‑year-old daughter for the holiday?

A girl at this age is not yet a teenag­er, but no longer a small child. She strives to imi­tate her moth­er, old­er sis­ter or aunt in many ways, but at the same time, the world of toys and dolls remains attrac­tive to her.

Toys for a young princess

  • Dolls. It seems that there are already a huge num­ber of them in the house, that it’s time to open the store our­selves, but the daugh­ter again orders the good wiz­ard anoth­er LOL, Winx, Bar­bie or an inter­ac­tive baby doll. Hav­ing learned about this desire, par­ents often try to reori­ent their daugh­ter to anoth­er, more adult gift. But it is impor­tant to under­stand that it is these toys that give girls emo­tion­al release from accu­mu­lat­ed school fatigue, through inter­ac­tion with them they real­ize their need to com­mu­ni­cate with their peers if it is not enough due to cer­tain cir­cum­stances.

So for 8 years old, this is a com­plete­ly nor­mal desire — to receive a new doll as a New Year’s present, which must be real­ized so as not to dis­ap­point the lit­tle lady on such a bright hol­i­day.

  • Doll­house. The dream of many girls! It is he who becomes the main props for games. Hous­es for them can be of dif­fer­ent types — from small one-sto­ry to high lux­u­ri­ous palaces. Games with him are very enter­tain­ing and use­ful.

Beat­ing the plots, the girls try on dif­fer­ent roles: wives, mis­tress­es, moth­ers. Equip­ping play­rooms, devel­op design skills.

  • Soft toy. Receiv­ing it as a gift will sure­ly please the daugh­ter. It is very pleas­ant to go to bed in an embrace with a ted­dy bear or a fluffy hare! They give a feel­ing of com­fort and secu­ri­ty. Per­haps the girl col­lects cer­tain types of toys, and replen­ish­ing her favorite series with anoth­er lit­tle ani­mal will lead her to com­plete delight!

An orig­i­nal gift will be a soft toy-cache. You can hide pleas­ant lit­tle things, hair­pins, jel­ry or your lit­tle secrets in it.

  • Lego con­struc­tors. There are many dif­fer­ent girl series. Among the 8‑year-old rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the fair sex, Lego Friends, Lego Elves, Lego Cre­ator are the most pop­u­lar. The sets include hous­es that can be con­nect­ed into entire neigh­bor­hoods, where there are cafes, shop­ping cen­ters, and beau­ty salons.

Lego games will give the baby pos­i­tive emo­tions, open up a lot of room for imag­i­na­tion and devel­op fine motor skills, which are very impor­tant in learn­ing.

  • Game set “Ice cream fac­to­ry”. It comes in dif­fer­ent vari­a­tions: some come with a spe­cial quick-hard­en­ing plas­ticine, using which you get bizarre shapes that resem­ble real ice cream, in oth­ers you can use real prod­ucts and get real­ly tasty ice cream! For an eight-year-old host­ess, the sec­ond option would be prefer­able. She will be able to come up with many types of real orig­i­nal ice cream, albeit small in size.

The set includes dif­fer­ent molds and acces­sories, thanks to which you can make pop­si­cle, split, fruit or berry ice cream — it all depends on what ingre­di­ents she will be allod to use at home.

The New Year smooth­ly flows into the New Year hol­i­days, when you want not only to enjoy home leisure, but also to spend time active­ly. A mis­chie­vous, nim­ble naughty girl will def­i­nite­ly be pleased with acces­sories for enter­tain­ment and sports.

  • Tub­ing (“cheese­cake”). The most favorite win­ter fun is ski­ing! Tub­ing allows you to fun and com­fort­ably move down the moun­tain. When rid­ing, a lot of speed devel­ops, so it is imper­a­tive to choose a mod­el that match­es the age and height of the child.

For ele­men­tary school chil­dren, the diam­e­ter of the seat should be no more than 1 meter, so that when mov­ing quick­ly, the force of iner­tia does not acci­den­tal­ly throw a pas­sen­ger out of it.

  • Skates. Girls love fig­ure skat­ing, the dream of many is to try on the role of a fig­ure skater and con­quer the ice! And even if the skills of prop­er slid­ing are absent or far from ide­al, all the same, such a gift will bring pos­i­tive emo­tions, and the skill will come with expe­ri­ence.

The best option is slid­ing mod­els of skates, then you don’t have to buy them every year.

  • Rollers. Any child can ride them! Of course, the first move­ments will not be easy, but after a cou­ple of lessons, progress will be notice­able. Roller­dromes are intend­ed for train­ing in the win­ter peri­od of the year, and in sum­mer you can ride in sta­di­ums and parks. Hav­ing received videos for the New Year with dili­gent train­ing in her free time, my daugh­ter will have time to improve her skills before the sum­mer.

  • Swim­ming attrib­ut­es. If the princess loves to vis­it the pool, then she will cer­tain­ly be pleased with a fash­ion­able swim­suit, an orig­i­nal water­proof cap, gog­gles and arm­lets, if she has not yet learned to swim con­fi­dent­ly.

Mod­ern chil­dren adore new elec­tron­ic gad­gets, you can con­sid­er pur­chas­ing them as a New Year’s present.

  • Smart­phone. At this age, I want it to be bright and fash­ion­able, no worse than that of class­mates. Even bud­get mod­els for chil­dren have all the nec­es­sary func­tions and ser­vices. Mobile Inter­net, of course, you can not con­nect, just set up Wi-Fi. Get­ting the desired gift on the hol­i­day will make the lit­tle girl hap­py!
  • Head­phones. They can be wired and wire­less, and will allow you to get great plea­sure while lis­ten­ing to the songs of your favorite artists or an inter­est­ing audio book.
  • Dance mat. My daugh­ter will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate this gift! It is a dance device that con­nects to a TV or com­put­er. The rug will not only be a great home enter­tain­ment, but will also ben­e­fit. It con­tributes to the devel­op­ment of atten­tion and sports skills, since dur­ing the dance all mus­cle groups are includ­ed in the work.

It is desir­able for god­par­ents to give some­thing that will be use­ful or will con­tribute to the devel­op­ment of the child.

  • Sand paint­ing table. The cre­ation of sand mas­ter­pieces devel­ops imag­i­na­tion, think­ing, fine motor skills, and also helps to relieve fatigue and emo­tion­al stress.
  • A set for cre­at­ing jel­ry. There are a lot of options, for exam­ple, you can give a kit for self-cre­ation of bracelets and beads, which you can then show off to your girl­friends.

What to give your little sister for the holidays

The choice of gift depends on the age of the old­er sis­ter. Usu­al­ly sis­ters with a small age dif­fer­ence com­pete with each oth­er, and there­fore quar­rels and dis­agree­ments quite often arise. A gift from the eldest will serve as a man­i­fes­ta­tion of love and friend­ship, and the best one is made by one­self. It can even be an ordi­nary draw­ing on a top­ic that is inter­est­ing to the younger sis­ter (princess­es, mer­maids, ani­mals), or cap­tur­ing the bright­est moments of fam­i­ly life (walks, trips).

You can present a home­made post­card, pho­to frame, bracelet, plas­ticine or clay sou­venir.

If the dif­fer­ence beten the sis­ters is more than 6 years, then the eldest acts as a stan­dard that you want to be equal to. The baby wants to be just as beau­ti­ful and seem a lit­tle old­er. To ful­fill this desire, the old­er sis­ter (with a small pock­et amount) can give some of the inter­est­ing girly acces­sories:

  • bijouterie - pen­dants, rings, bracelets, beads, ear­rings will undoubt­ed­ly com­ple­ment and trans­form the image of a sis­ter;
  • cas­ket — def­i­nite­ly use­ful for stor­ing jel­ry, small trea­sures;
  • chil­dren’s cos­met­ics — lip­stick, per­fume, cream, sequins will cause the young lady to rejoice;
  • hand­bag - a thing that will always be need­ed both for a walk and for going to the cin­e­ma.

What­ev­er the New Year’s sur­prise, its main goal is to bring joy to the child, so that this won­der­ful fam­i­ly hol­i­day will be remem­bered for a long time and leave only bright, kind and rain­bow impres­sions!
