Any person is waiting for his birthday precisely because he is counting on interesting gifts, but most of all this applies to little girls. The baby still believes in a miracle, she knows perfectly ll that at least for mom and dad she is a princess, and therefore it is impossible to disappoint a child. At the same time, it is not always easy to understand what to give a girl so that she is satisfied. In fact, there can be a million possible options and ideas — will only briefly go over the main popular options.
What to consider when choosing?
The topic of our article concerns some abstract girl, about whom nothing is said, but it is obvious that different children need to be given completely different gifts. But how not to make a mistake with the choice?
First, you need to give something that matches the age of the baby. There is no doubt that a preschooler will be happy with another doll, but a girl preparing for the transition to adolescence may no longer be interested in such a gift. And vice versa: some cosmetics, without which almost no female teenager can imagine himself, will not interest the child, unless the baby is an avid fashionista and does not seek to copy her mother in everything.
Secondly, each child is individual and has his own hobbies, which may ll differ from the interests of most other children. Theoretically, parents can try to sculpt from the girl who she really is not, but at least on her birthday, you don’t need to press on it — it’s better to contribute to the hobbies of the hero of the occasion and support her.
So, an active child will surely be much more happy with a bike than even the most interesting book about princesses with bright pictures. The same thing happens with calm girls: if it seems to you that the baby devotes too little time to active pastime, the donated rope will not turn her into a fidget.
You can try to interest the girl with gifts that she was not fond of before, but at least some of them should correspond to what she already definitely likes, otherwise the presents in her eyes will turn out to be a bunch of unnecessary things.
Finally, if a lot of guests and gifts are expected, it would be nice to coordinate actions so that it doesn’t turn out that everyone gives the same thing. Imagine that a girl wants children’s cosmetics and traditional dolls, and all the invitees, having learned that the child is interested in cosmetics, decide to realize their childhood dream and at the same time not be banal. It turns out a twofold situation, when the wish of the birthday girl came true, and a lot of gifts re presented, but at the same time without a single doll, which re also needed, the holiday will no longer be a holiday.
Choosing useful things
Like it or not, a birthday present can and should be useful even for a child. For this reason, in this section will not consider classic toys.
If talk about usefulness in the understanding of an adult, then it would be most correct to give some school supplies — say, the same bacweack. This option is really possible, but here you need to observe a fine line, because children usually “love” school in much the same way as adults do their work, and on their birthday, you don’t want to spend gift options on something that causes only sadness and aggression. It’s another matter if the child as a whole has a normal attitude towards learning, and the donors guessed that accessories should match the tastes of the birthday girl and just be “cool”.
Beat the baby’s hobbies somehow, and then even banal notebooks, but with the image of your favorite characters, musicians or actors, will be received favorably.
By the same analogy, clothes are given to the child — parents should clearly understand which style and print will make the girl an idol in their company, and which design will only cause a hail of ridicule from peers. Here, of course, one must either understand the culture of children and youth, or focus on the wishes of the hero of the occasion herself, or not go into this steppe at all, buying ordinary everyday clothes not as a gift.
The situation will be a little easier if the girl really likes to dress up and look beautiful — then any good dress should please.
Some popular gadget can also turn out to be not just entertainment, but a very practical and useful thing. For example, the phone allows the child to always stay in touch with their parents, and modern smartphones with the ability to fully connect to the Internet provide the broadest opportunities for finding information, meeting new people and communicating. It cannot be said that the Internet is a purely useful and correct thing, hover, with a responsible approach, a girl can find a lot of useful information there.
With a tablet or laptop, the situation is even clearer: these devices have long been used for more productive learning, they will come in handy not only in school years, but also in student years.
In addition, even if the gadget is used primarily for entertainment, this is also ambiguously bad: if their number is moderate, then why not, because any person has the right to rest.
Finally, must not forget about the overall development of the child. This category includes the vast majority of typical “children’s” gifts: these are sports items, various books, art supplies, and board games. Movement is health, because the same bike or roller skates will strengthen the child’s body, the baby will get sick less often, not to mention good physical shape.
Fiction expands the horizons of the child and allows him to look at the world more widely, and various encyclopedias with illustrations will help to improve erudition in various areas of useful knowledge. Creativity today can become quite a profitable profession in adulthood, but even in childhood at an amateur level, it allows you to develop perseverance and imagination, as ll as fine motor skills and imagination. And board games will completely improve any of the above skills.
List of original gifts
Children are very prone to vivid emotions, and after all, a holiday is an ideal occasion to give joy. It is on this day that various unusual surprises are especially in demand.
To begin with, do not become attached to the material — sometimes bright positive emotions can be just because of the way you spend your time. Here, of course, one should focus on the girl’s hobbies, as ll as what she has already tried in her life, but in general, new impressions are a good present. To give an example, consider how previous experience affects the choice of a gift for a girl who loves animals.
If a child lives in a relatively small town where there is no zoo, or simply has not had time to visit it yet, then going there can be a great solution — few children would not be delighted with what they saw.
Hover, it may be that an ordinary zoo for a birthday girl is no longer a curiosity, then you need to find a petting zoo, where there are much fer animals, but you can stroke them and pick them up. An alternative solution may be a dolphinarium.
A teenager acquaintance with animals has long passed, because here it’s better to give tickets to the concert of your favorite artist. As an option, you can send the birthday girl to the cinema for the expected film, but since such a gift seems rather modest and not very interesting alone, the girl herself and her entire company are usually sent to the cinema. The same applies to quest rooms, but here you need to remember that not all of them offer programs for minors.
Another unusual, and moreover, intangible gift is some kind of master class. This is far from always interesting for young children, and especially for children, such classes are not held so often, but teenagers who are able to attend “adult” master classes can get a lot of valuable information about their favorite pastime.
Thanks to this, some hobby (like the same modeling) can grow from an amateur level to a professional one.
Of the material, but relatively unusual, will name the first a set of children’s cosmetics — they write and talk a lot about this, but not every parent decides to buy it. At the same time, such a present easily solves the problem that the baby takes her mother’s lipstick and shadows without asking. In addition, special children’s kits are made taking into account the typical habits of children, pulling everything into their mouths, because such special cosmetics are not only non-toxic, but also easily washed off from any soiled surfaces.
Whatever one may say, sooner or later the baby will have to start learning the basics of makeup, and instead of forbidding the child from a potentially useful activity, you can encourage him without harm to anyone.
A rather unusual gift is also a pet. A huge advantage of such a presentation is that it brings up the basic human qualities: a sense of responsibility and an understanding of the need to care for others. Another thing is that you need to clearly understand to whom you are giving such a gift. A child may want his own living creatures, but over time he may change his mind, and you can’t throw away a living gift. In this situation, all the burdens of caring for a pet can fall on the shoulders of the parents, which means that you can purchase presents of this kind only after agreeing with them.
What can be done with your own hands?
To be honest, the modern world with its developed industry greatly reduces the value of homemade gifts, especially for children who do not yet understand the value of handmade. So far, for them, the most interesting presentation options are those that are sold in the store, unless one of the close relatives knows the skills of cutting and sewing and will give the young fashionista a chic dress of her own making.
Hover, this does not mean that creative gifts are completely excluded — just that they are always used only as additional ones.
It’s no secret that little girls love everything bright and beautiful. At this age, they are less practical than boys — sometimes the very atmosphere of the holiday is valued no less than, in fact, gifts. This is exactly what you need to focus on, pursuing the goal of presenting a homemade gift. For example, a wall newspaper dedicated to the celebration of a baby’s birthday will make the birthday girl feel proud and feel that she is loved.
A popular holiday solution is creation of various figures from various objects. Most often, such things are created from balloons — there are even special stores where such inflatable figures are sold. Of course, such a decoration will not last for years, but after all, a birthday is not every day.
A toy made of sets will stand even less. Once sets, even in themselves, re a great gift for a child, but modern children did not find those sad times, because sets as such are no longer associated with the holiday for them. It’s another matter if you construct a teddy bear figurine from them especially for a little girl — it’s beautiful, festive, and very tasty at the same time!
Scrapbooking is also a fashionable modern solution. If you make an album with photos of the baby and the best wishes, such a unique edition can become the best gift for a girl for many years.
Somehow it so happened that grandmothers are most inclined to make gifts on their own — it is they who have the most options for what you can give homemade to your granddaughter for her birthday. You can start with the simplest — your favorite pie or cake, which will be specially decorated on the occasion of the holiday. Traditional knitting is also allod — the donated item of clothing may be a sater, scarf, hat, or even warm socks.
It should be noted that such gifts are usually more appreciated by those children who have already reached a certain age when you begin to appreciate care.
Contrary to popular belief, it is not necessary to give only the most expensive things to please the modern child. In fact, some children’s wishes come true without great expense - you just need to listen carefully and show a drop of imagination.
If you are looking for a cheap gift option that your child will be delighted with, pay special attention to the art supplies segment. Of course, the serious creative skills and aspirations of the baby require the presentation of high-quality consumables, but in childhood, most attempts in art are purely amateur in nature, and the main thing for the child is to try himself in a new lesson. Of course, the birthday girl probably already has the simplest things (like an album and a set of pencils, paints or brushes), but you can always go a little more original way.
So, in drawing for the smallest, finger paints may be the solution. They do not need any brushes at all — they are painted directly with their hands, since the composition is harmless and easily washed off from any surface. An even simpler and yet very popular gift will be an ordinary coloring book based on your favorite cartoons. In modeling, you can focus not on banal plasticine, but on some kind of ball or even kinetic sand.
One of the most budget options was and remains a book. Please note that illustrated editions usually require good paper for a high-quality picture, and therefore are noticeably more expensive than those books where there are no or few pictures. It turns out that an inexpensive book has a chance to hook a child with a plot, but for a baby under ten years old, bright colors are more important. It means that a relatively serious book without an abundance of illustrations will be of interest only to teenagers.
A good board game will also not necessarily cost a lot of money, but it can be both informative and interesting, especially if the girl has someone to play with. As other players, not only friends and girlfriends are suitable, but also parents or any other relatives, because spending time together helps to establish an excellent atmosphere of mutual understanding and come up with a common exciting activity for loved ones.
