Be it your girlfriend, your daughter, or your five-year-old niece, picking up the perfect birthday gifts for girls can be a daunting task. Irrespective of whether the birthday girl is a tousled tomboy or a pampered princess, here are some great gift ideas, that are sure to make her squeal with delight.
For Girls 6 to 10 Years Old
Jewelry: Fancy charm lockets or birthstone jewelry is an ideal gift for your little fashionista. These lockets often come with cute and funny charms to light up your little girl's day. Couture bracelets and personalized initial necklaces are some of the favorite choices of birthday gifts for young girls.
Kids Scooters: This is one birthday gift that my little niece literally harassed me for. Kids scooters are a great gift idea for your adventure lover who would love to zoom around the park and the neighborhood in her bright pink scooter. Most of these scooters are equipped with brakes, handlebars, spoked wheels, and a bicycle stem.
Disney Watches: It was on my 10th birthday that my father gifted me my very first watch. Disney princess watches are a perfect birthday present for your ten year old. These watches have engravings of the favorite cartoon characters such as Cinderella, Ariel, and Belle. The straps are available in pretty pinks and powder blues, and the dial looks amazing with crystals adorning it.
For Girls 11 to 13 Years Old
Gift Cards: Teens have this great desire to express their independence and a gift card does exactly that. Find out your teen's favorite store and watch her have a great time picking up stuff that she always wanted. Make sure you take into account her tastes in mind. So for a budding musician, a trip to the Guitar Center would be an ideal treat for her birthday.
Canvas Totes: Canvas totes are one of the most popular gifts for your 12-year-olds who still stuff all their things into the teeny bags that they had as kids. They are available in a range of shapes. My favorite one is a personalized one with drawstrings attached to it.
Personal Diaries: Gifting your tween a diary allows her to pen down her innermost thoughts and secrets. Personal diaries with lock are something that your pre-teens will absolutely love. Make sure that you do not read her diary though.
For Girls 14 to 18 Years Old
Spa Gift Baskets: If your teenager loves to indulge and pamper herself with body care products, then gift her a birthday gift basket containing great skin care products from creamy moisturizing lotions, shower gels, body scrubs, and yummy lip balms. Include a luxuriant bubble bath, eau de parfum, and body lotions and you have the recipe for a great birthday gift basket for your teenager. Make sure that you include skin care products suited for your teenagers such as aloe vera kit for sensitive skin or tea tree skin care kit for oily, acne-prone skin.
Fantasy Novels: If your teenager is a hardcore Twilight fan, then she may love getting a fantasy novels set for her birthday. There are a number of authors with good teen fantasy fiction novels by authors such as Jonathan Stroud, Christopher Paolini, Cornelia Caroline Funke, and Philip Pullman.
In addition to this, you can gift your teenager iPod speakers, notebooks, cologne sprays, stylish digital cameras, silver jewelry, and other keepsakes. Although these gifts are modeled based on the current trends, remember that the gift should be given taking into consideration her needs and choices.
