How We Selected the Best Gifts for 7-year-old Girls

We chose the best gifts for 7-year-old girls by researching reviews from customers and competitors, and studying the features of more than 60 products on the market. We considered age recommendations, design, size, value, and interests when deciding our picks. We also reviewed guidance from the American Academy of Pediatrics on how to buy safe toys for our toy picks.

What to Look for in Gifts for 7-Year-Old Girls

Age-Appropriateness

When in doubt, check the box: Most toys and games come with age recommendations, which can confirm whether the gift is indeed appropriate for the gift recipient you have in mind. An age-appropriate gift is likely to be safe for a child to use, and provide the right level of ease of use along with challenge.

Budget

It doesn't matter whether your 7-year-old would prefer a two-wheeler or tablet if your budget is under $20. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to bring joy to your child without going overboard. Smaller or lower-priced gifts can be just as meaningful if they are chosen with love and care.

Passions

Ask a handful of 7-year-olds to share their hobbies, and you'll get answers that range from pretend play to art projects, Legos, and sports. The best gift for a 7-year-old girl is the one that directly speaks to her interests so it's best to ask her (or a parent) directly what she's been gravitating toward lately before you shop for her gift.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the benefits of gift-giving?

    Gift-giving can make recipients feel valued and appreciated. It also feels good to give a present that’s well-received—especially when giving to someone in need, or someone you have an important relationship with.

  • How do you communicate your love through a gift?

    Choosing a thoughtful gift that speaks to the recipients’ interests or desires can help send the message that you both understand and care about them. A thoughtful card can also go a long way in communicating how you feel in a more literal sense.

  • How do you teach a child gratitude?

    Helping your child recognize situations when they should say thank you can enable them to hone the skill on their own. Additionally, writing thank-you notes can help them practice expressing gracious thoughts. To take things one step further, try modeling gratitude: A child who hears you talk about how lucky or thankful you are may learn to do the same.
