Gift ideas for girls age 7
There are many gift options for 7-year-old girls. (happy birthday image by Photoeyes from Fotolia.com)

Go beyond the stuffed toy or standard doll when giving a 7-year-old girl a present for her birthday, graduation, Christmas or any other occasion. Most girls this age are inquisitive, intelligent, sensitive and energetic and have a strong sense of who they are. Whether the recipient is athletic and sporty or more of a fashion diva, give her something that makes her feel special while inspiring creativity and encouraging active play.

Toys

Give the 7-year-old girl an inspirational toy that sparks her imagination. Most girls this age mimic the professions of their parents, siblings or elder relatives. Keeping that in mind, gift the 7-year-old who likes to teach a white board and easel, board markers, and other classroom accessories to play teacher, or a doctor's set complete with a toy stethoscope, medical supplies, syringe and bandages to the aspiring doctor. Give the young chef a toy kitchen set complete with coloured accessories, or a toolbox for the inquisitive mechanic to provide hours of educational entertainment. Give the creative girl a complete drawing and colouring set, and assorted beads and string to the girl who makes jewellery. A science fan will appreciate a science kit that caters to her personal needs. For example, the 7-year-old interested in dinosaurs will appreciate a kit to help assemble a model, while a naturalist will like a bug catcher.

Clothes also inspire creative play, so give the 7-year-old girl who likes to dress up a firefighter, doctor, princess or fairy apparel and accessories.

Outdoor Accessories

Whether the recipient is active or you want to inspire her to spend time outdoors, give her an age-related active play gift such as a complete outdoor gym or swing set if the budget allows, or a bicycle or scooter for a cheaper alternative. Other options include pool toys, skipping ropes and pedometers. If the 7-year-old girl has a favourite sport or physical activity, get her accessories in her favourite colours, or get her name engraved on equipment for added fun.

Feminine Items

While educational items are appreciated, a 7-year-old girl is a little princess after all, and will appreciate "girly" accessories such as faux jewellery, make-up, rhinestone-encrusted bags, pink stationery and room decorations. Line a gift basket with pink crepe paper and fill it with different-coloured lip glosses, nail polish suitable for young girls, mildly scented lotions, bath accessories, a new jewellery box to hold her personal trinkets or a piece of jewellery such as a bracelet, chain or earrings. Add or remove items to the gift basket according to the particular recipient's tastes.

Books

Encourage the habit of reading by giving the 7-year-old an age-related book. Select one with slightly larger font for easy reading and that's full of coloured pictures that capture her attention.
