Gifts 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.

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!
