Christmas Tree Ornaments for Girls

by sheilamarie

Find the perfect Christmas tree ornament for a little girl! Help her put magic on her tree this Christmas season.

Giving a Christmas tree ornament to a little girl can be such fun! Girls may love an ornament that reflects something she really likes to do or an ornament that celebrates something about who she is. Each little girl will like something different, depending upon her personality and interests, and when you choose something that recognizes her distinctiveness, she'll know you chose it specially for her.
Here are some ornaments I have found that may fit a favorite someone in your life.

Who Are You Choosing The Ornament for?

Consider What the Girl's Interests Are

Whenever you are choosing a gift for anyone, but especially for a child, it is important to consider who the child is and what her interests are. Often people assume they know "what children like," but a child is just as distinctive as any other person, and what would be appropriate for one would be insulting for another.

Kids are quicker at rejecting the present, too, when it is not quite right and may be less aware than an adult would be of the care and intentions of the adult who gave it. Adults can show the same kind of insensitivity, though expressed in a different way, and may give a gift that doesn't recognize the child at the receiving end. Think of the bunny costume episode of The Christmas Story as an example of a gift gone bad.

A child can sense when you've taken the time to understand her feelings and her interests. If you live with the girl, then you have a better idea of what she likes and doesn't like. If you live far away, however, and only see her once or twice a year, if at all, then asking her or her parents a few questions might help. Does she take any lessons? Does she play a sport? Does she have any hobbies? The answers you receive will help narrow down what she might enjoy.

Even though we are only talking about a Christmas tree decoration here, choosing the right one gives you that extra chance to recognize the uniqueness of this little girl. You can introduce her to something just beyond her ordinary experience, of course, but if you know she eats and breathes sports, you may make a different choice than you would if you know that she has a love for whimsy and imagination. 

I have tried to include ornaments that reflect a wide variety of interests on this page, but you may find more ideas at the bottom if you don't find what you're looking for here.

I hope you have fun browsing!

Gingerbread House Christmas Tree Ornaments


These little gingerbread houses would be a really cute decoration for a girl who loves fairy tales and Hansel and Gretel in particular.

They'd also be fun if you and your little one enjoy making gingerbread houses leading up to Christmas day. These ornaments are yummy for your eyes to behold. They look like gingerbread but are really made from clay, decorated to look like gingerbread houses. Unlike the real thing, they'll keep from year to year.
