It’s 2010, a year that girls can run around and celebrate being a princess throughout year. Valentine’s Day is not just for adults, and your little valentine wants to celebrate with you as well! We often spend the holidays working so hard to make sure that everyone on our tick list gets something from us that we forget to look within our own families first. Have your little girl slip on a red velvet dress and make this Valentine’s Day a special one for her!
With an innate shopping gene, girls love clothes. Pick up a special item of clothing, like a princess dress, for your little girl to wear this Valentine’s Day. Many parents buy their children a small plastic toy that gets thrown away, why not buy your little girl something that is usable and will last a long time? Clothes are a necessity that makes a fun gift as well. Make the day a memorable one by watching your little girl unwrap a nice red velvet dress. A nice red velvet dress, red sweater, or Valentine’s-themed shirt will help make her day. Perhaps even some red shoes or purse would make her day! If you have a fancier time in mind, a fancy meal out or a tea party at a friend’s house, curl her hair and have her put on her red princess dress.
Girls also love jewelry. A little bracelet, pair of earrings, or necklace is sure to make her smile. If you’re feeling crafty, string her some jewelry on your own. Or you could make some simple bracelets together as a family craft! For younger girls, use bigger beads and stretchy cord for the jewelry. For older girls you can choose smaller, more intricate beads and more delicate cording. Put on some music and spend some time chatting with your little girl about her day while making a craft that both of you can wear! This is an expensive way to spend some time together as a family. It’s also something your little girl can do with her friends!
Valentine’s Day isn’t just about gifts. Make the day a special one! I remember waking up as a little girl to a small card on my breakfast plate, a special breakfast, and a balloon tied to my chair. In the evening my parents would take me out to eat, or let me pick out my own video from the rental store and watch it. If your daughter likes to shop, or play at the park, or have tea parties-take the time to delight her and fit the day to her tastes. Don’t forget to take pictures! Memories are worth more than any tangible item, and documenting this special Valentine’s Day will help your daughter remember how loved she felt and how much fun she had visiting with her parents.
Princess dresses are a no-fail investment that every little girl will love. A red princess dress will allow her to feel in the spirit of the holiday as well as double for a dress up or a fancy dress for special occasions. If you’re looking for a small gift that your daughter and her friends will play with for hours, try a princess dress or a red princess costume. Dress-ups encourage imagination and interaction. They also encourage little girls to develop their feminine attributes in a playful, natural manner.
Little girls have a fetish for little things. It’s often a trend for girls to carry a Valentine’s Day stuffed animal around, and giving your girl something small to carry will make her feel special and loved throughout the school day. If stuffed animals are more of an embarrassment than a toy, give her a little book or some paper dolls. A small gift than she can take with her and enjoy for the day will help her have a happy, enjoyable Valentine’s Day.
