The secret is out: girls of all ages love jewelry boxes. If you are looking for a gift for a girl, whether it be a little girl, a “tween” or a teen, then you should take a look at the various kinds of jewelry chests that are available for each age bracket.
How little is a little girl? They can be very little because first jewelry boxes are even given as baby gifts or given to little girls who are five and under. In this age bracket the gifts are usually musical boxes with a dancing figurine or a ballerina. Pink and white are the favorite color choices for such presents.
Depending on their age and personality, little girls may like themed jewelry containers with princess, ballerina, fairy or horse designs, and some girls would rather have a more “grown up” box like their mother’s. So, carefully consider how old the girl is and what themes she might prefer.
You can choose from dainty pink jewelry boxes, white wood jewelry chests, music boxes and jewelry armoires, jewelry holders and secret treasure drawers.
Another thing to take into consideration is the favorite color of the young lady and the color scheme of her room because that is the place it will most likely be displayed. Some of the favorite features on first jewelry sets include a necklace carousel, a mirror, music, a lock and key and pop up trays.
The lock and key is a feature to look for because young girls regard these boxes as their personal treasure trove, available only to them and they love to lock and unlock their precious possessions.
Some of the musical boxes are designed more as a music box than a jewelry box, so if jewelry storage is more important to you then you should look for boxes that have lift out trays and necklace sides. This will allow the young girl to be able to organize all of her jewelry.
Little girls love musical boxes, toy jewelry cases and purse style jewelry holders they can play with, and girls seven and up appreciate gifts with lots of little compartments for earrings and charms.
Typically young girls use these boxes for more than jewelry. When choosing your gift also see if the box is big enough or has space to hold non-jewelry items such as notes or a diary. Extra storage drawers in some of the boxes make them ideal for this purpose.
Tweens and Teens appreciate jewelry boxes with a more modern look and contemporary design. Jewelry boxes for teens and tweens are similar to those available for women. They range from small leather travel cases to cherry, walnut or mahogany finished dresser top and stand-alone jewelry armoires.
Jewelry boxes are more than just pretty accessories as they teach young girls about organizing their belongings and they encourage proper care of precious possessions. Also, when they are given by a special relative they will often be kept as an heirloom. Gifts intended to be heirlooms are usually crafted from wood in keepsake styles.
So take a look at the various jewelry boxes that are designed with girls in mind and you are bound to find one that will touch the heart of your favorite young lady.
