For The 9 Year Old Girl - Gift Ideas

Updated on October 18, 2014

This Little Girl is growing up

This is how I think of my little grand-daughter. Staying young, having an anything goes attitude and not really caring what clothes she was wearing as long as it was pink! But time does fly by and now this little one is 9 years old going on 15....

I've always had such great fun buying her Christmas gifts. She would look through a catalog or advertising flyer and circle all the things she wanted for Christmas. You know, things like dolls, stuffed animals, doll houses and doll strollers. After the baby doll stage she wanted things she could create and loved all the craft gifts. One year I packed a big box full of paper, crayons, paints and brushes, scissors of all kinds and many other craft needs. That was a big hit. Then she wanted anything with lots of bling. She has grown out of that and just wants to be stylish. Of course she still plays with her American Girl Doll but not as much as she use to.

Well, things have changed. I hardly know what to get for this child anymore. She has her own likes and dislikes. She is very particular about what she wears. Not only her clothes but she is crazy about shoes and jewelry and very particular about her hair. This child has a mind of her own and she knows exactly what she wants. I still love shopping for her but it is a lot harder and I will not settle for a gift card!

This lens is dedicated to those moms and grandma's that are searchinig for that perfect gift for their "tween" girl. Happy shopping!


The Kindle

Top rated gift

This is on my grand-daughters gift list this year. I'm thinking it will make a great gift. She is in the 3rd grade and loves to read. The Kindle is easy to operate and you can borrow e-books from the local library. Of course, you can also purchase e-books too! So, if you know of a favorite book maybe you could get that downloaded and ready to go when your child opens the gift.

The Kindle starts at $79 and goes up from there. The basic model weighs less that 6 ounces and has a 6 inch screen. It has buildt in Wi-Fi. Of course the models get bigger and better every year so you will be able to find one in your price rage.

Don't worry about the technology because I'll bet even 5 year olds have learned how to handle most techy objects.


Mood Jewelry

Do you remember this stuff?

When I was a kid there was mood jewelry. It always intrigued me. I had a ring that changed colors with my mood. I loved it. Well this stuff is still around and my grand-daughter can't get enough of it. She wears 3 different necklaces at a time. Of course, they all show a different color (or mood) but I would never tell her that. She just loves it.

On the up side I think the mood jewelry is very pretty and has come a long way over the years.


These Boots were made for walking

You can't have enough foot wear

My grand-daughter loves shoes and boots. She doesn't just follow the crowd but she has her own style and not afraid to wear something that no one else has. I love that about her. Boots are all the rage and you will never go wrong with a wonderful pair of boots.

So, if your grand-daughter is a "fashionesta" she will love getting a pair of fashion boots.

Boots are now being worn with the jeans or leggings inside the boots so skinny jeans are more comfortable than the flare leg jeans. You'll also see leggings being worn by girls of all ages and what do they have on their feet? Boots of course.

Is it me or is shopping getting harder. It seems the toys are more complicated or sophisticated from the time I had children at home. Costs are skyrocketing and it is frustrating trying to find the right gift. I long for simpler days!

Is shopping for Christmas getting harder or easier?

Little Rubber bracelets

You need more than one!

This has been a fad for a very long time now but it doesn't seem to be going away. If you are looking for a great stocking stuffer for your 9 or 10 year old girl then look no farther. These bracelets are very trendy. Even the boys are wearing them.

My grand-daughter wears so many of them at one time they prectically go up to her elbow. She loves them and will never have enough. She wears them on her wrists and then several more around her ankles.

Bracelets Galore! - The more you have the better.

Girls of all ages love these bracelets. Buy them by the truckload!


Feather Extensions for your hair

A rainbow of colors

Of course my 9 year old grand-daughter has a 14 year old sister so she needs to have everything her bigger sister has and that includes the feather hair extensions. I know the older teens and younger women are also wearing feather extensions but rhe youger girls always want to mimic the older girls and this is a perfect example.

You don't have to go to a beauty salon and spend a fortune to have a feather hair extension. These extensions are reasonably priced and can be used for special occasions. Anyway they use them your daughter/grand-daugher will love these.

Again, these make wonderful stocking stuffers!


Diary or Journal

Girls love to write

Girls love to write and having their own diary or journal can help them express themselves. Journaling is a great habit to get into. Writing your everyday thoughts or things that have happened on a particular day. Even Oprah journals.

Journals come in many shapes and sizes so you are sure to find one that will fit your 9 or 10 year old girls' personality.


The American Girl Doll

The doll of choice

The American Girl Doll is a favorite of my grand-daughter. The neighbor children get together after school and play with these dolls for hours.

The doll is extremely well made and life like. The clothes are gorgeous and all the accessories...well there is a never ending list of items your little girl will want.

The American Girl doll is for Big little girls. There are many different outfits you can buy, which make great gifts for the future. You can buy furniture, hair accessories and much more.

There is a large selection of dolls so you can choose one your 9 or 10 year old girl will love for years to come.


Slap Watches

Crazy name but the watches are a real hit for girls of all ages. They come in all different colors and the price is low enough so that you can gift these in many colors. For my grand-daughter it must be lime green. That's her favorite color (right now) use to be purple and before that it was pink. With the low cost of these watches I can get her all her favorite colors.

These watches are worn with a variety of bracelets and are real cooooool!


The Poison Apple Book

Is your girl a reader?

If your child loves to read then this is a great series to get her hooked on. If reading isn't her favorite thing then maybe, just maybe, this series of books will get her interested.

The author, Mimi McCoy, is a great writer and the girls just love this series called "The Poison Apple Books". Remember how the Twilight books and movies were all the rage and the teens couldn't wait for the next book and/or movie to come out.? Well, this is a series for the younger girls. They are spooky and silly and your young lady will enjoy all of these books.


Splat Hair Dye

Okay, I know what you are thinking....I don't want my kid to have purple hair! Step back and take a deep breath. Your little darling wants to be like the big kids and the Splatt hair dye is something you can do at home and it gradually washs out so it isn't permanent.

Yes, you do it at home so it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. It will be fun and your daugher, grand-daughter niece or friend will think you are the best ever. Lot's of colors to choose from and easy to do.

I did my grand-daughters hair in shocking pink. I mean SHOCKING PINK. She loved it. We did a strip of hair in the back and at the nape. You could see it if she wore a pony tail or her hair moved just right. In other words, you don't apply this stuff to the whole head...just to certain areas and in strips.
