The Best Gifts For 7 Year Old Girls [Buyer’s Guide]

One of the best things about this age group is they can undoubtedly tell you what they want. This is sure to make finding a present they like a no-brainer. But, at the same time, 7-year-olds also pretty much like everything.
 
They enjoy laid-back games to more competitive, active pursuits. So, you’ll still find lots of choices out there.
 
Most 7-year-old girls enjoy playing with sports equipment that involves large-muscle activities like rollerblading or riding a bike. But they’re also just as happy to do something a bit more low-key, like play video games.
 
You’ll also find that art kits and other craft-type gifts are popular with this age group, allowing them to express themselves creatively. By 7, many kids are becoming more confident readers, and girls start to get into chapter books at this age. So buying them a boxed set of books from their favorite series is a great gift idea.
 
They also love to build, collect things, and redo their rooms. Fun bedding or bedroom furniture can make ideal gifts for a budding designer ready to show off her personal style.
 
To simplify things a bit for you, here’s a breakdown of some of the top categories for gifts for 7-year-old girls. Consider the recipient’s unique likes, personality, and abilities to choose the best fit when reading through these options.

Science Kits & STEM Toys

You’ll find tons of toys on the market today that feature labels saying “STEM” or even “STEAM.”  STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math, and STEAM adds art into the mix.
 
Basically, these toys are anything that helps kids learn about these various subjects, and they can come in a broad assortment of items.
 
They’re an excellent way for kids to reinforce concepts they’re learning in school. Plus, they often feature engaging, hands-on activities that help make learning fun. Depending on what your child is into, you can choose from a variety of STEM toys.
 
Chemistry sets, science kits, and interactive robotic toys are some examples. But other options are coding computer games, making bath bombs, painting with marbles, or even building with LEGOs.

Sports Equipment And Outdoor Gear

If you have a 7-year-old, then you know they can really pack away the food. Suddenly, kids get older and start clearing out the pantry in a matter of minutes. A big reason for this is that they have an almost unlimited supply of energy.
 
Different outdoor gear and sports equipment are a great way to facilitate a 7-year-old’s need to be active. Also, physical development starts to really take center stage at this age. The things that kids do now will likely influence how their bodies grow and develop significantly.
 
Trampolines and bikes help build endurance, strength, and balance. Even a fun mermaid tail for swimming adds extra resistance, helping build core strength as girls swim.
 
These gifts are also a great way to encourage spending time outside and taking a break from the screen. Look for bikes, scooters, and other items that can adjust and grow with your child. And always make sure to include the proper safety gear.

Video Game Consoles

In today’s world of “too much screen time,” the idea of video games might make you pause. But, in moderation, they actually come with a lot of good points. Many games offer educational features, and some even get kids up and moving. 
 
Video games can also help kids develop other essential skills like problem-solving and hand-eye coordination. Just make sure to pick age-appropriate games and set reasonable limits on gameplay with your child.

Glamour And Glitz

Seven-year-old girls love to give each other makeovers, do their nails, style their hair, and even design their bedrooms. Part of it is because they’re coming into their own, discovering their sense of style, and building confidence. The ability to express themselves in a healthy way is vital for young girls.
 
A stylish school bag can make all the difference between how they feel about heading off to class. Choosing their own bedding set can significantly impact how happy they are at home.
 
It might seem like small things to adults, but to a 7-year-old girl, these things are a big deal. These gifts also let girls make some decisions for themselves, which helps develop self-esteem and boost their sense of self-worth.

Art-Based Kits And Craft Sets

Another excellent way for girls to express themselves is through art-based activities. Jewelry-making kits, friendship bracelets, sewing projects, and building a birdhouse all offer major benefits. Girls can develop fine motor skills, coordination, creative thinking, and imagination.
 
Between 6 and 7, girls’ fine motor skills can make a giant leap, so more intricate crafts become available to them. These types of gifts are a great way to keep girls engaged and focused in a fun way.
 

Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

Q: What do I do if my 7-year-old thinks toys for her age are too “baby?”

 

A: It’s no secret that all children mature and develop at different rates. Plus, they all have unique personalities, which means you’ll always have some kids that aren’t into what most kids their age like.
 
If your child wants something labeled for older age, it doesn’t mean it’s automatically off the table. Manufacturers usually base these ages on broad estimates.
 
You can ask other parents that face a similar situation or read reviews about the product. Also, observe your child with the item for a bit to see how things go. This observation time will likely give you all the data you need to deem whether the toy is appropriate for your child or not.
 
Q: My 7-year-old doesn’t like to lose. What can I get her to help teach her good sportsmanship?

 

A: The truth is, no one really likes to lose, but at 7, kids don’t always get the idea of losing gracefully. Good sportsmanship is an important lesson that kids should learn early on. Young kids often might cheat to win, not seeing the big picture. 
 
Games that encourage easy competition, like board games, can be a good way for kids to learn how to win and lose. This is also when many kids might become more interested in team sports. So, sports equipment that can help them develop skills to play with others can also help build a sense of teamwork.
