Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Little Girls

Valentine’s Day is one of the holidays that have become highly commercialized over the years. Once upon a time it was a simple little day, when young people where given the chance to formally express their feelings, but it has since evolved into a celebration and holiday where boys show their affection to the girls in their life by giving them gifts. It is easy to see why, hearts and flowers were never things that boys really cared for. Nowadays, it seems unfair to leave out even a very small child from this fun holiday. Like most holidays, it has become about showing that you care and giving gifts as a sign of affection. If you have a daughter, she might feel left out, seeing as how all the women around them are being given gifts. This is a list of some fail proof gift ideas for little girls that have been proven to work quite well.

Cute stuffed animals 

This one is a no-brainer, a carefully selected stuffed animal can work wonders on girls and women alike. The go-to stuffed animal is usually a teddy bear, and for Valentine’s Day a pink or red one with a heart is sort of a standard. However, if you want to be a bit more personal with your gift, you can choose different animals or cartoon characters, depending on what the child likes best. It can be anything as long as it is vaguely related to hearts and love. Overall, big, pink and fluffy is the way to go.

Heart shaped… anything really

You will have a wide assortment of heart-shaped objects to choose from. It doesn’t even have to be heart-shaped as long as it has some hearts painted on it. You can combine various items into sets (e.g. porcelain hearts, ponies and other figurines) and have a nice little gift bag ready to go. The gift can be practical as well, like a heart-shaped pillow, pink pajamas and blanket with hearts and/or little angels, wrist-watches, jewelry, shoes and various articles of clothes containing some form of heart decoration.

A girly princess gift set

Most little girls want to be a princess, and as well they should because every women deserves to be treated like one every once in a while. A good gift option is to get a whole set of items that follows the princess theme. A princess gift set can include a tiara, rings, lipstick, mirror and various other accessories. You can combine this with a pink dress with heart decorations and some shoes to get the full effect. It is a great gift if you have several little girls as they can spend a good part of the afternoon helping each other get ready, mixing and matching costumes and accessories and organizing a “royal tea party”.

Makeup kit

With little girls it’s more about the fun of pretending to get ready for a ball, then actually trying to impress. Little items like lip gloss, nail polish, a hair brush, a mirror and some eye shadow can provide a little girl with hours of fun, although you will have to remove all the “war paint” once the fun is over. As I’ve mentioned above, adding a little princess dress and a tiara to the mix can make things even more interesting.

Dolls

Depending on your budget this can mean a couple of dolls and an afternoon spent at a sewing machine or a dollhouse with a bunch of accessories. Creating some DIY dolls can be made into a fun day for the whole family as you can get your girls involved in the creative process and perhaps have them design some clothes for the dolls she already has or even create her own teddy bear.

These examples are just some of the tried & true gift ideas that you can’t go wrong with. You can always customize these presents based on what your daughter likes so they can cover a wide range of areas and provide a lot of fun for your special little girl. And if you live in Australia and want to throw a party for her and her lady friends, go to Party Picks website and check out their Minnie Mouse party supplies. I am sure they will love it. You should make this day a special one, for both mommy and daughter, especially if you have more than one little girl running around the house.
