Whether you're shopping for a birthday gift, Christmas present or token to celebrate a special occasion, girls of all ages can be difficult to shop for. However, 10-year-old girls present the opportunity to give creative gifts like toys, educational items or gadgets based on their individual interests and hobbies.
Ten-year-old girls are old enough to follow directions on their own and are often curious about the world around them. Activity kits, such as science experiments in a box or jewellery- and perfume-making kits, allow girls to explore their creativity and interests in a controlled manner. Typically available at toy stores or large retail chains, activity kits will come in a prepackaged box with everything the gift recipient needs to complete a particular project.
Encouraging an active lifestyle is important for elementary-aged girls. Outdoor toys encourage girls to get outside and play, while also allowing them to practice athletic skills and have fun. Scooters and bicycles are popular large gifts. Less expensive outdoor toy gift ideas include large rubber balls with handles that can be bounced on, water toys or sports equipment for the girl that enjoys athletics.
Girls that love a day out shopping with mom may get the most pleasure from a gift card. Depending on the interest of the particular girl, purchase a gift card from an age-appropriate store. Fashion lovers might enjoy an allowance at a young girl's clothing shop, while voracious readers may prefer a small shopping spree at a local book retailer. Most conveniently, gift cards can be purchased in any amount to fit any gift-giving budget.
Although 10-year-old girls may not quite be ready for their own cell phone, there are plenty of age-appropriate tech gadget gifts for preteen gals. Hand-held game consoles offer a world of entertainment with games on nearly any subject. Portable MP3 players are fun choices for music lovers, and virtual pets provide a toy for girls to play with both at home and via secure online sites. Girls may also enjoy having their own stylish or character-themed phone within the home dedicated especially for their use.
Giving the gift of event tickets affords girls the opportunity to check out something they enjoy up close and personal. Think about purchasing tickets to see the recipient's favourite musical act, an ice skating exhibition or visit a theme park. Ticket purchases can, and should, be tailored to fit the girl's personal interests. It's also important to remember that the gift recipient will need transportation and a chaperon, so always buy tickets in pairs.
