Top Gifts For 7 Year Old Girls

A list of the top gifts for 7 year old girls was put together by my daughter. She decided to make this list because it was her own wish list for her 7th birthday. The list seems endless, but there are some good gift ideas for girls this age that I thought were worth sharing. Many of these gifts are easy to find. I have found myself buying from this list not only for my daughter but also for her friends birthday parties she has been invited to attend.

Girls who are 7 are typically in the first grade, heading into second grade. Social relationships with friends can be more important at this age than in the past. Girls at this age are developing new interests, but may also enjoy spending time with activities, sports, and hobbies which they have enjoyed in the past. Overall, this gift list is in no particular order, but hopefully it will help you on your own search for a 7 yr old gift.

Microphone for Singing

If the girl enjoys singing, encourage her interest. Popular kids shows like Hannah Montana, Shake It Up, and Camp Rock inspire many young girls to try out their own singing voice. Current technology provides relatively inexpensive CD players with built-in microphones or step up to a karaoke machine or computer audio recording kit.

Dress up clothes

Girls this age want dress up clothes, which really are nice dresses, jewelry, and magnetic/clip-on earrings. They still may enjoy playing dress-up at home, but they also enjoy wearing fancy clothes where they can be seen by others.

Arts and crafts

There are some wonderful art supplies and craft kits available that make great gifts for elementary school age girls. Girls love to make things like braclets and jewelry. They also like to work on crafts like stamping, crochet and beads. Kits are also available so girls can make their own jewelry box or mirror. Here are some examples of arts and craft sets that 7 year old girls would like.

Melissa & Doug Friendship Stamp Set

Have a cooking day

Games like Cooking Mama and Cake Mama are very popular with kids, particularly girls. Skip the baking toys and go to the grocery and get real cooking supplies instead. Set aside some time and help her make cookies, cupcakes or a real cake. Get plenty of sprinkles and icing to decorate the creations.

Movies

What movies do 7 year old girls like? Try Enchanted, The Last Song (Miley Cyrus), Alvin & the Chipmunks or Alvin & the Chipmunks the Squeakquel, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 1 & 2, Hotel for Dogs, Camp Rock 1 & 2, Tangled, and Yogi Bear.

Music

According to my 7 year old daughter, popular music for 7 year old girls includes the Camp Rock 2 Soundtrack, Annie Movie Soundtrack, Justin Bieber - Never Say Never, Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana), Beauty and The Beast Broadway Soundtrack, The Lion King Broadway Soundtrack, Jay Sean - Down, Taio Cruz - Dynamite, Selena Gomez.

American Girl

American Girl dolls, clothes for American Girl dolls, American Girl books and videos are all gifts that are appealing for many 7 year old girls. If you have ever witnessed the excited girls visiting one of the American Girl stores in New York or Chicago you will understand why girls like these products. The Americal Girl dolls have their own stories and personalities which in many ways may be similar to the girls purchasing the dolls. For more information visit www.americangirl.com.

Digital camera or flip video recorder

Help encourage a future photographer or film maker. The price of entry level digital cameras or flip video cameras that feature high definition video are now low enough to consider them for gifts, even for 7 year old girls. Select a camera that is as simple to use as possible, with a limited amount of pre-set camera modes. Remember that they will need access to a computer or the help of an adult to download the photos or video for viewing. If no computer is available, most cameras have built-in editing modes where photos can be cropped and enhanced. Bad photos can be deleted and the best images can be taken to a discount photo printing service. Many discount digital image services only charge 10 to 20 cents per photo printed. A computer is required for editing of any video. Flip video cameras can be connected to a TV for viewing.
