Ahoy There, Mr. Turtle Sherpa Blanket by Alexandra Ball
Whether little girls are made of sugar and spice or of smiles and flower petals, we are all completely in love with these beautiful souls. One of the sweetest ways to show our love for a little girl in our life is to give thoughtful gifts we know they (and their parents) will adore.
Sometimes, that means going beyond the toy aisle and being creative with your gifts. Read on to discover our favorite cute gift ideas for girls that are personal, inspiring, and unique!
Does your little girl love snuggling up with you on the couch for a movie? Does she enjoy curling up with a blanket and a favorite story? If so, this gift idea is perfect for you. Package up an incredibly soft Sherpa blanket with a matching throw pillow, featuring some adorable children’s artwork in a theme or a color your little girl loves. If you’re looking for another way to personalize this gift, add in a corresponding storybook or a new movie you can enjoy together.
If you’re wary of giving yet another plastic toy to the little girl in your life, don’t worry—many parents today wish for fewer toys and less playroom clutter. Instead, try giving a gift that’s both functional and fun! A children’s wall clock featuring whimsical artwork is a useful choice whether the little girl recipient is in diapers or in elementary school. Parents also will find this particular decor item invaluable when observing nap times, getting kids ready for school, or teaching their little girl about their daily schedule.

Another great idea is to give little girls inspiring artwork that speaks directly to their interests. Canvas art prints are a really simple and easy way to infuse your little girl’s living space with creativity and color—they’re super easy to hang, lightweight to transport, and don’t need to be framed! Plus, if you find art prints from exceptional artists who create specifically for children, you’ll notice that not everything has to be pink! Little girls have interests as wide as the world they live in—so look for children’s decor that honors this variety!
