As a mother of 3 I know how hard it can be to come up with creative gift ideas. Age 7, 8, 10, 12 & 13 can be tough to buy for because it seems that they keep changing their mind on what they want! Maybe I shouldn’t say it quite like that. I have noticed as my kids get older it’s not so much that they keep changing their minds but they just want to buy or get more things.
Our 5 year old is in the stage where she wants to go buy something every day which makes gifts for this age 5 pretty easy. Now as wonderful as that would be to get something everyday it’s just not going to happen! Not only would there be no appreciation for gifts or hard earned money but where would you put all the stuff? She has just come to realize how fun it is to get new things and I think it’s adorable. This is what she tells me, “But mom, I never get to buy new things.” Let me remind you that this is what she says the day after she just got something new and pretty much every day after. She is such a big help when I need to come up with a gift for girls her age. Below is Artsy Girl Fashion Doll from Little Miss Matched. She is 1 of 4 different dolls to collect.
For Christmas and birthday gifts our goal is to find something that’s wonderful, shows our love, appreciation and a gift they can use for a long time. It’s very rewarding when you give something that is remembered for several months and possibly even years later. What’s really exciting is when the one you give is in the top 3 of their favorites. You know, the type of present that is talked of long after it’s given. Sock Monkeys, clothing for baby, toddlers, kids and teenagers are some Christmas gift ideas.
Some of the ideas we have chosen for our kids have been big hits. When our girls like a gift more than anything they will bring it to bed and sleep with it at night. They started doing this at a very young age and back then I didn’t think it was a such good idea and I’ll tell you why. There were several nights where we would wake up to a little girl crying because she lost her toy in bed. Then she would continue to cry until we went in her room, turned on the light and found that little toy. Needless to say we came up with the idea that if it’s something small that can easily get lost they need to put it in a special place at night. This way when morning comes around they will have their precious toy with no night time interruptions. They didn’t like this idea very well at first but now it is a huge success and they do it all by themselves. We all sleep great and it makes for a wonderful morning when they get up and know where their special toy is located. A couple of favorites include their big dolls, little toy animals and this sounds silly but they also wanted to sleep with their nail polish and lip gloss.
Most of the time I can find unique and really great gifts for girls age 3, 4, 5 up to 8 and 9 but the challenge comes when we need to come up with gift ideas for teenage girls 13 to 16 and above. At this age I think many of these kids like to spend most of their time in the privacy of their own room. So my thoughts are why not help them decorate it with fun bedding, furniture and room accessories. Little Miss Matched has gifts for kids like bed in a bag bedding sets that are reversible, creative and maybe kind of wacky! They are so much fun and I always love anything reversible. This gift idea lets kids change their room as often as they like without having to move a bunch of heavy furniture around. Kids bed in a bag is just one of many gift ideas for sister, daughter or get a matching set for best friend as Christmas gifts, Birthday gifts & baby shower gifts.
Little Mismatched also has complimentary curtains, valances & super soft pillows that are fabulous ideas for girls to liven up their room. The pillows can be for decoration or a cozy addition to snuggle up with when they want to relax. Charlie and Max and Zoe are some cuddle creatures you can find in the baby bedroom area. They are adorable pillow creatures that aren’t scary at all. In the area for babies there’s really colorful and neutral baby bedding for girls and boys. There’s crib sets with jungle or safari images and monkey baby bedding as well as wall art and decals. Now if you are searching for toddler bedroom supplies for girls and boys, this kids bed in a bag kit and room accessories will give you some great inspiration. Bright colors and patterns come together in ways I would not have imagined. Click on Bedding when you get to the next page for more information on Baby Crib Bedding.
Moving on to more gifts for age 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 all the way up to sizes for women I would have to say that Little Miss Mismatched socks are quite the rave! They come in all different sizes, styles and heights. You’ll find some funky socks for baby, toddler, girls and women’s socks as well as socks for men. There’s a variety of collections such as Classics, Disney, Juicy Couture, NYC Inspired, Project Sock and Web Exclusives which is another reason they make such good gifts for girls, women and men. I’m not for sure how often these collections change if they do at all.
These fun socks are super cool and you can shop by height. Your choices here are Liners, Anklets, Knee Highs and Over the Knee. I really didn’t know there were so many different socks out there and I am amazed. They’re so cute and girls, women, babies, toddlers, moms & wives love them. Dad is also included because there are socks for men. While we’re at it I’ll give you the categories in the Shop By Style section.

What a great idea, and it adds so much fun to your day. That’s just another reason they make the best gifts for girls, teenagers and women. It’s a little on the wild side if you ask me and I think most of us need that every now and then. Anyhow, back to filling you in on these crazy socks. You get 3 single socks that are all different. I love this present and what darling ideas for girls age 7, 8, 10, 12, 13 and more! They have like colors but most have unique patterns of some sort.
