Gifts for Similar Ages

How the Gifts Were Chosen

We researched the best selling gifts for 9-year-old girls and read parent reviews to determine the best gifts for this age group. Then we ensured they were safe and made to last for the girl in your life.

And finally, we researched each product to compile a list of the pros and cons to help gift givers in their decision of which products to purchase. The gifts on this list are representative of the most highly desired gifts for girls. This list includes a variety of gift types so you are sure to find one that suits the little girl in your life.

Physical Milestones

Nine-year-olds are prone to sleeping more as they pass through growth spurts as they approach puberty. They also become stronger and better muscle control and coordination. At this age, there is a great range of body heights, weights, and sizes due to individual growing cycles. Kids in sports are able to learn more difficult maneuvers.

Emotional Milestones

Kids at this age are better able to handle and resolve conflicts. Nine-year-olds become very invested in relationships outside of their family, developing close friendships and more autonomy. Children are able to take on more responsibility, including chores within their family. Though they seek peer approval, they still need reassurance and comfort from parents.

Social Milestones

Girls at nine years old also become focused on belonging and fitting in with their peers, becoming more vulnerable to peer pressure. Many children at this age have cell phones and access to social media, which puts pressure on others without this modern technology. This is the age that true relationships with a “best friend” begin to develop.

Cognitive Milestones

These children can develop and lose interests very quickly, in spite of their growing attention spans. When they latch onto something they love, they may develop an obsession with it very quickly. Nine-year-olds are able to work cooperatively in groups at school and will begin to tackle more difficult concepts and tasks within the school environment.

FAQ’s When Choosing a 9-Year-Old Girl Gift

How do I choose a gift for a 9-year-old girl?

If possible, find out what she likes and dislikes. Then go through our list of great gifts to find one that fits her interests. Choose something unique that she is likely to love. Consider how she will use the gift you are buying her. Ensure that gifts meet safety standards and also verify the recommended ages for a product.

You don’t want to get a gift meant for four to eight-year-olds that a 9-year-old will find babyish. Also don’t get something that is so far above her head that it won’t grab her interest. Age recommendations are there for a reason, but also consider individual maturity and development.  Lastly, check out the reviews and questions others have asked and then go for it. Besides, girls will love the time and thought that went into picking out a special gift, just for her.

Are toys still a good choice for kids at this age?

Many toys are still appropriate and desired at the age of nine. However, steer clear of toys or characters she may have liked in the past unless you are certain she still likes them. As she matures, she will likely gravitate away from more babyish concepts and be moving toward mature themes and trendy items.

Will the toys last a long time?

It depends on the item you purchase. Some products have a shorter expected life due to the materials they are made of and some items depend on how much and the ways it is used. Technology is also always changing and what is cutting-edge now can be outdated in six months, so keep your expectations appropriate for the life of your gift.

Craft kits will eventually run out of supplies, crayons wear out, and clothes get outgrown. Also, look at the reviews from others who have purchased it to find out how long it has lasted for other girls. Remember, experiences can differ, so read a variety of good and bad reviews to ensure the gift meets your expectations.

Where can I find the best gifts?

Great gifts can be found in a variety of places both online and in-store. Once you have an idea of what you want, shop around to find the best product and deal. In-store sales can be a great place to find what you are looking for at an affordable price. However, Amazon often offers the best deals year-round, verified reviews, and(sometimes free) two-day shipping.

Amazon is convenient, and fast in a time crunch, but feel free to buy anywhere you find the best deal and product for that special little girl. Also, read descriptions carefully because sometimes pictures feature add-on items or larger sets that you can buy

What do 9-year-old girls want?

Every girl is different. One may love pink and another may detest it. One girl may still play with dolls and a different girl never did, even when she was younger. Think about the conversations you’ve had with her or those close to her. What did she talk about? What types of activities is she in? If you listen close enough, she’s probably already mentioned what she likes.  If not, ask her. Or ask one of her friends or family members.

Most girls have an endless wish list that they can’t wait to share with you. A bookworm will likely enjoy Nancy Drew Starter Set (5 Book Series) or Mastermind: Over 100 Games, Tests, and Puzzles to Unleash Your Inner Genius . Techy girls will flip over the Tecboss 3D Printer Pen and DROGRACE Children Kids Camera Waterproof Digital Video.

No matter what she’s into, there’s something on this list for her. Nearly any girl will love the Ultimate Slime Kit, so you can’t go wrong with this gift!

How do I keep my daughter’s room from becoming cluttered?

Have a plan. Before holidays like birthdays and Christmas, designate a certain number of toys, accessories, or clothes that must be given away or donated. Involve them in where to donate them. There are a number of great organizations to donate to, like a local women’s shelter, church, a charity organization, or perhaps a family with children who would be glad to receive some gently used items.

Many families have a rule that the number of incoming gifts has to have an equal number of items that their child must get rid of. This keeps their room and home from being overloaded. Here is a list of places that accept clothing donations.

Are popular brands better than unknown brands?

Not necessarily. While popular brands mass-produce and often go to great lengths to ensure quality, many unknown brands produce the same or superior quality. Name brands can sometimes be reliable and other times fall short of expectations. Do some research on the brand and product you are buying to ensure a quality product that will last.

Whether you purchase a name brand or a smaller brand, know the reputation of the business along with their track record, if they’ve been around for a while. If you are looking for a popular product, beware of imitators that make cheaper products and try to pass them off as the original using shoddy materials which often do not work right or fall apart very quickly.

What gifts will help reduce a girl’s dependence on technology?

Technology has a place and a time. Fortunately, there are many gifts which encourage and even require time away from technology. Board and card games are a favorite non-tech activity for kids of any age. Getting them outside for at least 60 minutes a day by providing plenty of ideas for outdoor play will help girls stay healthy and active.

Craft kits like this Friendship Bracelet Maker and the American Girl Ultimate Craft Setwill keep her focused and occupied for large chunks of time.

Involve her in other activities like drawing and coloring with Pink Crayola Light-up Tracing Pad that will keep her busy without the use of technology. Having your girl participate in a variety of activities, both with and without technology will help her become a well-rounded, independent young lady.
