Turning 10 is a momentous occasion for kids, as they have been alive for a whole decade. For 10-year-old girls, presents can range from dolls to paint sets, to less standard gifts, such as animals. No matter what the present, however, a birthday for a 10-year-old girl is always a time of celebration.

From soccer to basketball, giving a gift to a child who enjoys sports always elicits an excited grin or squeal. Give a baseball and mitt, skateboard or volleyball to a 10-year-old girl, and then take her outside to practice with it. Include a sports magazine or other paraphernalia about their favorite player.

A girl almost always tries to emulate her mother or the women around her. By giving a gift that recognizes this beginning of adulthood is a great gift for a 10-year-old. Give a small grouping of lip glosses, or lipsticks, as well as glitter eyeshadow. This can be used in a more decorative fashion rather than everyday makeup and can make the girl feel like the grownup she so often tries to replicate.

Books

For 10-year-old girls who enjoy reading and books, giving a favorite story is a perfect gift. Books from "Redwall" to "Harry Potter" are good choices. Or, to acknowledge the birthday girl all year, give one book and then homemade coupons that promise a book for the next 12 months.

Movie gift

For a little cinema buff, try buying a Blue-ray or DVD of their preferred Disney movie. Or, for a different approach, buy a booklet of movie tickets to a local cinema and promise the child that you will take her to whichever appropriate movie they want when it comes out. Include popcorn with the gift to round it out.
