Daughters Are Precious!

Being the mother of a lovely daughter, I can convincingly say that Daughters are the most precious and great gifts of God.

  • Life can be colourful and happy, with a daughter' s presence.
  • She is vital for fathers and brothers and of course mothers.
  • As she grows, you can clearly see a friend, a well wisher and a person whom you can always look forward to in times of happiness or sorrow.
  • She will always stand by you and will never leave you alone.
  • The best compliment a mother can get with regard to her daughter is when people are heard saying, ' She is just like you.'
  • Similarly a daughter is delighted when people say, ' You have grown up into a fine and graceful woman just like your mother.'

A daughter is a little girl who grows up into a closest friend and any girl who has been a good daughter is sure to become a good wife.

A daughter is a little girl who grows up into a closest friend and any girl who has been a good daughter is sure to become a good wife.

Self Made Gift Ideas for Daughters Day or any day!

My daughter is very fond of giving gifts as well as receiving them. And I don't think you need an occasion to gift something to the people you love and care for.

While many gifts can be purchased from the market or Online, I want to gift her something self created.

1. My gift to my daughter:

An ALBUM of her childhood, containing photographs or sweet memories, along with her brothers and parents.


My daughter is due to get married in near future, so obviously she will have to leave me for her husband' s home. I have created an album, which contains selected special, unforgettable moments and stages of her childhood.

Although daughters do not forget, but this will be a sweet reminder of her family, her parents, brothers and grandparents and other family.

2. My second gift to my daughter:

A recipe collection, handwritten by me


There can be so many recipes, which can be learnt and prepared. But still there are some family' s favourites, some special mother' s recipe or other ones, prepared on special occasions or festivals.

I thought it a wonderful idea to write them by myself and gift to my daughter. I know she would be thrilled to get this gift.

5 Gift Ideas For Daughters

There can be so many gift ideas for your darling daughter. Being a mother you know about her choices. It could be a Jewelry piece or a lovely dress or trendy shoes or even some books.

Here are some gift ideas, which is most common and girls love them any time.

1. Flowers or Flower Bouquet

There are plenty of gifts to choose from but I think nothing can be as fresh and beautiful as Flowers.

Fresh fragrant flowers are the best to express your love and affection for your daughter. You can choose from the flowers of your daughter' s choice.

Arrange it in such a way that she receives the bouquet in the morning as a pleasant surprise and see the sparkle in her eyes.

2. Perfumes


Now which girl does not like Fragrances or Perfumes. As a mother you must be aware of her favourite fragrance and how wonderful to surprise her with it, in an attractive gift pack.

Remember to write a beautiful message on a beautiful greeting card, expressing your affection and emotions and see the priceless smile on her face.

3. Handbags or Cute little money bags


Girls love bags and want many of them in different colours, shapes and sizes. At least I can say that about my daughter. They keep on adding new ones matching with their outfits or shoes.

So how about adding some more to her collection and make her happy.

4. Art Pieces or Handicrafts


Most women admire Art and they always want to collect beautiful Art and Handicraft pieces and feel proud and privileged by doing so.

India has a very rich heritage of Handicrafts and other forms of Art. You need not even spend lot of money to buy something beautiful according to you daughter' s choice.

You can buy beautiful hand made Bangles, antique or tribal ornaments, accessories for wrist or arms or feet, beautiful wall hangings or paintings, woodcraft or metal craft and so on, the list is endless.

5. A fabulous dinner at her favourite restaurant


Nothing can be as great as spending time together on a special day. Book your seats at her favourite hotel, with delicious food, excellent decoration and wonderful musical atmosphere.

I am sure this idea is going to be an unforgettable experience for you and your daughter.

Celebrate a wonderful Mother--Daughter Relationship!


No gifts are required to express love and affection. In fact it can very well be felt by a tender touch, a warm hug or that adorable expression in your eyes.

But sometimes the gifts are used to express feelings, to speak something, which you have not been able to say yourself. Therefore, we must go for it. Let your daughter know, how much you love and care for her.

      I have a granddaughter who would love the money purse idea. I agree that they are special blessings from above. We should celebrate their life as often as possible.

      Thank you Paula Atwell, for your kind visit and comments!

      My daughter also loves electronic gadgets, computers, smart phones etc. Rather they are necessary part of her life, since she is a Software Engineer. But there is a feminine side of her also, like many other girls of her age, for which the above mentioned gifts are suitable.

      Different girls may have different choices and that's okay.

      Thanks for sharing your views!

      I laughed as I read your list, because my two daughters wouldn't like any of those things. They are so not girly at this age. :) However, the sentiment is the same. My girls like movies, computers, electronic gadgets and tee shirts and jeans. :D

      What great ideas. The recipe book of family secret recipes is a real treasure. I wish I had one. Your recipes are great and your daughter will be honored. My Mom's recipe book sort of dissapated from too much use over the years but I have a few of the good ones in my cook book.

      Beautiful gift suggestions here, I really like the recipe book and now I'd like to do that for my kids. I heard about Daughters' Week which was last month but I didn't know Daughter's Day is in September. That's good to know so I can do something special for my little girl. I'm sure your daughter appreciated all the thought you put into thinking about her on a special day - daughters truly are a gift!

      Beautiful article full of great suggestions for gifts for a daughter. I had no idea there was a Daughter's Day. How interesting. I don't know if we are celebrating that here in the U.S. Your daughter is so fortunate to have such a loving mother who takes the time to celebrate her. This was just lovely to read and your sentiments and feelings for your daughter are precious.

      Well it seems I missed daughter's day but not your lovely hub. Your ideas were wonderful and your pictures "picture perfect".

      I have always had a picture album in each of my children's baby book. When they got married I gave them their baby book with pictures of them growing up so needless to say I think this is a good idea.

      Voted up, useful, and interesting.

      I am glad you liked the idea of self written Mother' s Recipe book. Daughters are indeed precious gifts of God. When they grow up, they are perhaps the closest friends.

      Thanks for your support and have a great weekend!

      I had no idea there was such a day as Daughter's Day. I have two daughters and they are beautiful gifts to me. Your gift ideas are great ideas. I like handmade gifts best. I like your recipe book idea. My daughters are constantly calling me for recipes, so I think they would like a hand-written recipe book from their mother. Thanks so much for the suggestion.

      Hi Imogen French!

      Thanks for your visit and lovely comments! Your comment made me think and I Googled to know, if there was a Son' s day, because even I have two adorable sons. The information I could get is that perhaps August 11, is Son and Daughter' s day. But there is no clear answer. May be, We should just create one of our own, to pamper our Sons. Yes, I think I am going to do that!

      Thanks for your valuable feedback!
