If you're looking for a creative gift for a special little girl, then consider putting together a gift basket. Baskets filled with fun little gifts make great presents for children, because it gives them the opportunity to unwrap lots of little presents instead of just one large gift.
Little girls of all ages like pretty things, which mean there are a myriad of possibilities for filling your gift basket. When shopping for items with which to fill your basket, a great place to start is the accessory store. These shops often cater to younger people, from children to young adults, and offer a wealth of gift ideas to spark your imagination. Plus, accessories, which are varied and often inexpensive, make great basket fillers for girls of all ages.
Add colorful, fun hair accessories. Barrettes and ponytail holders are a perfect addition to your gift basket as do hair bands and tools for braiding. Temporary hair sprays of different color and glitter gel also make fun gifts.
Also great for your basket is costume jewelry. It doesn't have to be expensive. Little girls love beaded (or woven) bracelets and anklets, and inexpensive but fun necklaces. Pick bright colors over silver- or gold-tone for an additional fun factor.
Socks can be fun, too. Think bold and colorful. Socks come in fun, festive patterns, some adorned with add-ons like feathers or pom-poms.
Pick out some stylish nail polishes and lip glosses. For younger girls, you can purchase washable makeup specifically geared for dress-up fun.
Scarves, purses, sunglasses, belts, and hats are also great accessories to add to your basket, and don't forget that accessories can mean more than jewelry or other wearables. Add a pretty brush and mirror set to your basket, or a pretty, journal with lock and key.
Keep the child's likes and dislikes in mind. Particularly for a younger child, don't hesitate to pick accessories that are wild and crazy. Go for the fun factor.
To finish off, select a great basket or other funky container, and be sure to wrap each gift individually to maximize the thrill of unwrapping. Gift baskets make great gifts, particularly for little girls. If you have fun putting it together, a special little girl will be sure to have just as much fun taking it apart.
