Army Themed Gift Ideas for Girls

Giant 5 Foot Romantic Teddy Bear Wearing Army Tshirt
The military isn't just for the boys, and plenty of girls now aspire to do their bits for their country and join the armed forces. If a girl in your life is an aspiring soldier or just really likes supporting the troops, then why not get her an army themed gift for her birthday or for Christmas?

Army Outfit Dolls
American Girl
First of all, for younger girls and girls who love to collect plushies and teddy bears, why not buy her an army themed bear? You can get some truly awesome ones out there, in particular the gigantic bear featured above - I have a similar one and it is really big and huggable! It's head is actually bigger than mine, its really quite funny, and its a wonderful gift. If you are on a budget or you are looking for a smaller but equally adorable teddy, here is a very cute one which even sings. I'm sure she will love it!

Younger girls who have a doll collection may also appreciate getting a cute army themed doll or action figure for their collection. I particularly like the Army Outfit doll's outfit on the right - you have to get the American Girl doll separately if she doesn't already own one.
Another fun gift idea for the military-loving gal is some beautiful army themed fashion accessories. There are a number of military themed jewelry pieces out there to start you off - my favorite is the gorgeous U.S. Army charm necklace featured above. It's so stylish!

Child's GI Army Girl Costume
If she has a charm bracelet you are in luck, as there are a lot of military themed charms you can give as a gift to add to her collection. I particularly like this Air Force heart shaped charm, as well as this gold plated US army logo charm. They're stylish and patriotic! There are lots more out there, so be sure to shop around and pick ones you think she will like the best. 

Are you shopping for a girl who likes to play army games and dress up with her friends? Let her act out her favorite war games with an awesome army girl costume like the one on the left! You can even get some army themed everyday wear so that she can be secretly playing dress up on the day-to-day. Here's a beautiful and elegant camouflage pattern dress she might like, for example.

Last but absolutely not least, why not give the gift of charity? Make a donation to your local troops on their behalf! You can give to the American Red Cross Military Families Foundation, the Air Force Aid Society, and many other similar organizations. You can even adopt a service member for them at Homefront Hugs.

If you are searching for the perfect Christmas or Birthday present for a girl in your life who is a right hoot and loves owls, why not get her some fun owl themed gifts? This post is going to be looking at all of my personal favorite owl goodies from around the net, so read on and enjoy!

Aurora World Barney
Plush Great Horned Owl
First of all, every girl needs a big pile of plushies to cuddle at the end of the day, and there are a lot of owl themed teddies out there to choose from. For girls who like an unusual, vintage or kitsch look, check out the very colorful Hooty microwaveable owl plush featured at the top of this post, while girls who want a more accurate depiction might like the Aurora World line of plushies, which has all of the major species of owl in cuddlesome form. Gift her her favorite!

Second, another fun gift idea is some owl decorated tableware. For a coffee or tea addict, there is this cool rural style owl mug that would make a wonderful gift, for example. Girls who love to cook might appreciate an owl oven mitt and a matching kitchen towel.

White Gold and Black Eyed Owl Necklace
Sterling Silver Owl Bird Heart Shaped
Charm Pendant Necklace Jewelry
If you are shopping for a girl who is a big fashionista, then why not gift her some amazing owl themed jewelry and accessories for her birthday or Christmas present? There is some really cute owl themed necklaces out there for example, like the adorable white gold necklace above.

For a particularly special treat, you can get the solid sterling silver necklace with a beautiful heart themed owl necklace pendant on the left as a present. It is absolutely gorgeous! If you are gift-getting for a girl with pierced ears, there are a number of pretty owl themed earrings out there. My personal favorite is this set of blue crystal eyed vintage owl earrings

Does she need somewhere to store all her new owl themed jewelry? Why not get her an owl jewelry stand like this one, or this colorful owl jewelry box to store her accessories inside? She is sure to appreciate it a lot!
Another great idea is to get her some gifts that let her turn her bedroom into an owl themed fantasy land, like the cute vintage style pillow cushion featured above. I've made a whole blog post featuring tonnes of Owl themed bedroom decor ideas, so be sure to check it out for loads more ideas.

Woodsy Whimsical Owl Figurine
For example, a really cute piece of bedroom decor that makes a fun gift is an owl figurine to put on her bed side cabinet, shelves or windowsill. I like the wood effect whimsical owl on the right in particular, as well as this super cute Jim Shore figurine, but there are loads out there so choose something that will be perfect for her.

So there you have it! That is my guide to gift shopping for a girl who is crazy about our feathery friends. I hope you liked my choices and found the right present for her.
