Purchasing a birthday gift is an ideal way to show the girl in your life how much you care. Purchasing the right birthday gift can be a tricky task, whether you are preparing to celebrate her first birthday or her 18th. Choose a gift that is age appropriate and fits her personality to see her face light up on her special day.

Babies and Toddlers

Babies and toddlers like exploring, learning to use their hands for more than chewing on, and imitating grown-ups. Blocks, nesting and sorting toys, a toy phone, a baby doll and books are just a few appropriate gifts for a little girl. Fisher Price's Laugh and Learn Learning Kitchen provides the opportunity to cook just like mommy while learning colours, numbers, letters and shapes. Mattel's Little Mommy Play All Day Baby is an interactive doll that responds when played with. Try a selection of board books for your little girl's birthday. Choose a classic such as "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle or a bedtime story such as "Beddy-bye Baby "by Karen Katz.

Young Girls

Many young girls like playing dress up. The Disney Princess Dress Up Trunk is filled with dresses, shoes, hair accessories and jewellery to thrill your little runway model and allow her to pretend to be her favourite Disney princess. Include a kid-friendly non-toxic make-up kit and your little girl will enjoy putting on cosmetics just like Mom. Mini-Play Makeup feels like real make-up but is completely mess-free. Young girls may also enjoy Barbie dolls, My Little Pony and kits for making their own jewellery.

Older Girls

As a girl gets closer to her teenage years, she will enjoy items that make her feel grown up. Purchase a simple jewellery box and fill it with inexpensive necklaces and bracelets in various colours. Your daughter may enjoy a scrapbook kit and a kid-friendly camera to preserve her own memories. She may also enjoy writing in a new journal. Your little fashion designer may also like the Fashion Angels Design Artist Tote and Portfolio so she can create her own fashions.

Teenage Girls

A teenage girl's personality will dictate the types of gifts she will enjoy. She might like a large sketch pad and paints or other art supplies. She may enjoy learning to play a musical instrument such as a guitar. Let your daughter create and personalise her own Keds shoes at Purchase a new bedding set and redecorate her bedroom. Other teen girls may enjoy an MP3 player, movie or concert tickets, jewellery or make-up. If all else fails, take your teenage girl out on her birthday. Go to lunch at her favourite restaurant, followed by a trip to the mall.
