It can be difficult to find the perfect present for a nine-year-old girl. They’ve amassed long lists of interests and might not be thrilled to unwrap a doll. Try to think outside of the box when it comes to presents. Give them something that encourages them to be a little artistic. That way the gift seems even more personal, because they’ll treasure what they make with your present and will think about how that present was from mom, dad, their aunts, uncles or grandparents. Don’t worry though, we’re here to help you out. We found some of the best birthday gifts for nine-year-old girls.
We know that this age is an in-between, transition age. They aren’t preteens yet, but they’re only a few years away. They aren’t little kids either. They’re not going to get as frustrated and discouraging when trying something new—like a slightly more complicated craft. They’re also incredibly curious and want to learn more about the world around them. These gifts allow them to express their personalities. Check out our top three picks below.
