Birthday Gift Ideas To Meet A Growing Need

By Natalie Glass

There are many birthday gift ideas, and considering a child’s age is necessary to select that perfect gift. If a child is celebrating a milestone birthday, such as the 13th, 16th or 18th birthday, your choice of birthday gift ideas should include items that are not only age appropriate but that will serve as a part of a memorable marker of that year’s life transition as well.

Coming up with a list of birthday gift ideas for you to review and that a child will be happy to receive can be easier if you consider the significance of reaching each milestone age.

Gift Ideas For Adolescents

At thirteen, your child begins the world of adolescence. This is the age where some girls discover the opposite sex, while most boys can’t pull focus away from their current video game.

By thirteen, your child has begun to find the things he or she is interested in. At this point, teens are still a virtual sponge. Gift ideas for kids at this age invoke some sort of great interest or passion and can carry over well into their college years.

Loves Music Or Is Artistic

If you find your child musically or artistically inclined, gather up birthday gift ideas that allow creative sides to show. Give them a used camera, some film, or a musical instrument.

These gifts could help children express themselves better and help create some very original artwork. On top of those gift ideas, get the gifts most every thirteen year old boy or girl would love, such as current trend gifts or fad fashions.

Calling Cards For Girls

Gift ideas for some thirteen-year-old girls surround make up, perfumes and hair accessories. A creative gift idea for the social butterfly is to give her a set of calling cards.

Certain specialty stores carry sets that have an eye-catching design. You could also create some on your home computer if you have software that creates custom business cards. Just choose a design your daughter would like and use card stock or paper of a proper thickness in her favorite color.

A New Bike For Boys

For the boys, some best bets to stick with as birthday gift ideas are a new bike, bike accessories, scooters, video games, video game controllers, or skates. If the boys don’t like going outside, get some them some carpet skates or a foam bowling kit. Invest in strategic board games such as Chinese Checkers, Chess, or Battleship. These games appeal to girls as well.

At sixteen, boys and girls have similar interests, mainly getting their license, cars, music, movies, clothes, and the opposite sex. Being accepted by their peers is important. Gift ideas for the girls are gift certificates to their favorite clothing store or beauty salon.

Favorite Movie On DVD

For the guys, get their favorite movie on DVD or a music album. Gift ideas for both are food cards, gas cards or a gift certificate for a tune-up if they own a car. If you’re a really generous parent, consider buying them a car or at least help with a down payment.

At eighteen, your son or daughter is in their last year of high school. They can legally vote and leave home. They can decide whether they want to pursue higher education or not.

A Map Of The World

Birthday gift ideas that will allow them to explore the world before they hunker down and get a career are good to get. Get them a map of the world, a passport wallet, and a book of places to see. Also, consider opening up a Roth IRA for your kid. This gift could help put them on the path to financial responsibility if they aren’t there already.

The years of a child’s life pass by quickly. Birthday gift ideas that are age appropriate and substantial can sometimes be difficult to come up with. The extra time and thought that you put into selecting a creative gift can result in a gift that will serve as a pleasant reminder of your love for the child as they grow into adulthood.

More Gift Facts....

What are the usual gifts for girls?
Like boys, girls are culturally conditioned for gifts according to their sex. Many girls will receive dolls such as a Barbie or an American Girl. A new type of doll on the market, Bratz, portrays teenage girls as cell-phone toting, shop-’til-you-drop consumers.

With enough exposure to such products, little girls will begin to form a concept of what it means to be a girl in terms of looks and activities. Girls will often receive gifts about princesses, instilling a particular image of femininity.

Nonetheless, people have become aware that perhaps some of the gender assumptions about girls are untrue and unhealthy, so it is not a bad idea to purchase a girl something like a soccer ball. Anything to encourage a child to be physically active is good.
