Magazines For Girls - Great Christmas Presents

Updated on November 9, 2013

When I was young, back in the 1960's, there were few good magazines for girls. I do remember eagerly awaiting my Highlights Magazine and then, of course, there was Seventeen Magazine but, when I was early teens, that magazine was a bit too mature for me.

That's why I was happy to wander across American Girl magazine on Amazon.com just now. I think this is the perfect magazine to give as a Christmas present for a younger teen. American Girl doesn't just contains ads designed to make your teenage girl appear older, wiser, and more mature like some of the competition. Instead, it's full of good stories, such as craft and party ideas, and articles about self-esteem, etc. Your young girl will also find articles about how to deal with bullying (a hot topic these days) and how to learn efficient study habits. What isn't contained in American girl is a whole lot of articles about boys, dating or applying makeup - those are best left to magazines like Seventeen.

Reviewers on Amazon.com note that girls well into their teens were still reading and enjoying this magazine. Some of the reviewers started reading it as young as age seven and are still at it. I think that fact alone is quite telling in the quality of the magazine and information contained within.

Giving a Christmas present of a magazine is also great for a younger girl. It's an excellent gift for a senior citizen to give to a grandchild or great-granchild. It will remind her at least every other month that she's someone special. And, after all, shouldn't we be teaching every teenager, boy or girl, that they're something special?

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.

Here's a few more good magazine for younger girls. The first link below "National Geographic Kids" is the perfect Christmas gift for young boys or girls. The other two magazines are for girls twelve and up. They're more focused on boys, dealing with problems, etc.

Comments appreciated.

      I agree that it is a wholesome magazine without going crazy about celebrities and overly sophisticated topics. Let girls enjoy their time as kids, not as miniature adults.
