If you're lost and feeling rotten about it, don't fret! Parents who don't have daughters often have no idea what girls like. Even the parents of girls get a little lost sometimes in keeping up with the trends! Many girls don't adore the standard "girly" items either, so it can always be tricky.

Best advice: if you're still stumped, ask the parent what their daughter likes! Often there's at least one brand that's a safe bet. Ardene and Claire's have excellent gifts for girls.

And if we missed something fabulous, please add it in the comments below! What’s new, cool or trendy that I might not know about?

    My nieces (10 and 8) LOVE when I bring them shopping with me and I give them a little budget that they can spend however they want.  They usually go to Claire's or Ardene (teenage jewelry and accessory stores). They like to receive gift cards but I always feel that it's too impersonal. 

    I know 10-year olds LOVE everything with unicorns on them. 

    A few months ago, I bought this jar filled with arts and crafts material at Costco for my 9-year old niece and she was so happy!  She kept sending me pictures of all the projects she made!
