While our gift selections are a mix of presents for daughters of every age, you might want some shopping inspiration that's more formally categorized.

What Are the Best Gifts for Toddler Daughters?

For little ones, we are always looking to find educational toys that combine learning and fun. Why? Because learning toys have benefits that will enhance their development for the long-term. Learning toys help build problem-solving skills, say the child development specialists at Educational Playcare, as well as nurturing creativity and imagination.

For baby women, sensory toys can be introduced almost from the time they are born. These toys will help them focus, develop eye and hand coordination, and also keep them interested and connected to the world around them. 

Some of our favorite toddler toy makers include Melissa & Doug, Playskool, and Fisher-Price.

What Should I Buy for My Grade School Age Daughter?

As your daughter develops, she's ripe for those kinds of gifts that will build on her strength, self-confidence, and courage. Grade school girls are at the perfect age for ziplines, skateboards, bikes, and soccer, baseball, and basketball.

At the same time, they're also going to be looking for ways to mimic grown-up behaviors like nurturing a baby doll, parenting a toy pet, or playing dress-up. For dads, this is a perfect time to get your daughter a toy workbench to introduce her to the concept that girls can work in the shop too. All of these experiences combine to give your daughter a well-rounded approach to life. 

What Are the Best Gifts for Tween and Teen Daughters?

As you've probably noted if you have daughters this age, their tastes are changing and run more toward ideas that allow for self-expression, independence, and activism. 

Consider viewing this YouTube video hosted by actual teenage girls to get clues, or consider gifts that allow them to recreate their bedroom into a very personal space. We've included a few of those decor items in our list of recommendations.

What Are the Best Gifts for Girls Who Are Tomboys?

While we reject, outright, the term tomboy, which basically means an adventurous and spirited young lady who has a mind of her own, we do know that shopping for girls like that can be somewhat more challenging. While we have a list of recommendations for strong-minded, independent girls, we'll toss out a few ideas that might surprise you. 

First, suspend your thoughts about what fits their style. Consider a slackline kit or backyard zip line to encourage her high flying adventures. Both of these options help her build strength, balance, self-confidence, and courage. Overall, they'll make her a stronger athlete no matter what her favorite sports might be, say the fitness experts at Outside Magazine.

Don't be afraid to get her a portable basketball hoop, outdoor hammock, or even an indoor hammock that lets her escape into a good book or favorite show. No girl should be put into a box. There are plenty of them who love to get down and dirty, and also love makeup and the softer sides of being a girl.

What Are the Best Gifts for Grown-Up Daughters?

Obviously, it depends on their age, and where they're at in their life process. You'll always be looking for gifts for your daughters, whether they're new moms, juggling teens, and a professional career, or they're looking forward to retirement

The one thing we've seen with daughters as they get older is that they don't often think of themselves, often putting family first. That's why splurge gifts are great, especially those kinds of things that encourage her to develop a new hobby, give her some self-pampering, or are something she wouldn't ordinarily budget for without guilt.

Daughters are such a unique gift throughout life (I know, because I have four of them!) make sure to take the time to find them something that genuinely expresses all your devotion, love, and immense pride.
