Fitness is Important so Encourage Her to Stay Active
Getting active today is more important than ever. With computers and video games to play kids are sitting more than they did in the past so it is important to get them up and moving. Physical fitness gifts have become an increasingly popular area of gift giving for kids.
The younger you can encourage children into sporting activities the better. Soccer, basketball, golf, swimming, dance, biking or skating gear are all great fitness themes.
If the girl on your list likes to golf then her own personal set of clubs is also a great physical fitness item for a ten year old. Wii Dance, music downloads, a personal music player, a stereo, or outdoor sports equipment, games, water slide, skates are great ideas for her.
A large or small trampoline is also a fantastic fitness gift for children this age. It is pure simple fun. There is just something about bouncing that makes you feel like giggling.

For a ten year old girl a gift she can share with her friends is fun times two. Concert tickets, movie passes, or gift certificates for her favorite recreational facility are wonderful entertainment gifts for her and her friends to share.
If you are gifting movie or concert tickets though be sure to include a ticket for her, another for at least one of her friends to attend, and an extra ticket for her guardian to accompany them. Young girls are very attached to their best friends and would be thrilled to have their friend attend events with them.
Good Luck Charms and Items Themed to her Interests
Animals are a popular gift theme for girls and gifts which display horses, baby animals, puppies, or kittens on them are especially treasured. This gift could be a diary, stationary, jewelry, clothing, room decor item, stuffed toy, calendar, book, lego set, music box, video, trinket box, or a book.
Gift themes which represent good luck are also a delightful choice for her. A ten year old girl is still young minded enough to want to believe in the magic that surrounds fantasy, fairy folk, guardian angels, a four leaf clover, or wishes made on a lucky star.
A good luck gift of caring is surrounded in mystic and this magic is not lost on her. This type of present can be very enchanting. It is also more then the theme that counts here. If your gift is one that shows how much you want to protect her then this gratuity of good luck holds an even more special charm within its giving.

Lotions, Potions, Perfumes And Glittery Glosses
Girls seem just naturally attracted to sweet smelling lotions, perfumes and glittery glosses and as they mature the intoxicating effect of these items continues to increase.
A girls age ten will soon be able to use these fragrance and beauty products on a regular basis but for now she will simply enjoy experimenting with any of these products that find their way into her grasp. Any beauty gift that you choose to give her will be greeted with a great deal of excitement.
Preteen girls are very anxious to be able to experiment and dabble in the magical female lotions and potions of a teen girl's world. Just keep scents and colors light to match her innocent personality. Temporary hair dye is okay to go a little wild with as each application only lasts for a few days and then she is back to her regular self again.
Mystical, Magical, Sweet, or Practical?
Preteen girls can be very emotional. She may be having a temper tantrum one moment and having a giggling spell the next, so gifts which evoke a strong emotional response from her are very appealing.
Many of the best birthday, Christmas, and valentine's Day gifts for her are not expensive items but simply ones that have a strong emotional chord within them.
Tweens are a fun group to shop for. They tend to like virtually any gift item which compliments their unique age and personality. Generally younger girls are just as delighted to receive a special room decor or clothing items as they are to open their gift to discover a delicious collectible, sweet treat, nail polish, or a lip gloss kit.
Whichever item it is that you decide to choose for your daughter, granddaughter, niece or family friend, I am sure that it will be the right one. She will most likely be happy simply to be receiving a present from you.
