The appropriate birthday gift for a 10-year-old girl is determined by considering her hobbies and interests, but generally include electronics, room accessories, music-related items and personal journals. A girl of that age is finding her voice and defining her personality, but usually wishes to keep in step with her peers.
Anything hi-tech is likely to please a 10-year-old, as girls this age are into trendy gadgets and connecting with friends via technology. Since most young girls of this age wish to create their own private world, accessories for her room would make a good 10th birthday present. Gift cards to download music and games, a ticket to a concert, fashionable trinkets and sporty clothing are appropriate ideas for a birthday gift as well. The giver may also pique her interest in reading and writing with a popular young adult novel, leather journal or diary.
