There’s a reason I felt compelled to write about first period gift ideas.
Did you receive a gift for your first period? I didn’t.
In fact, all I felt during my first menstrual cycle was confusion, embarrassment, and discomfort.
That isn’t the experience I wanted my daughter to have.
My goal is to help her develop a healthy relationship with her menstrual cycle.
Why give a first period gift?
As mothers, we want to ensure that our daughters feel comfortable and confident as they navigate their first period.
Instead of treating menstruation as a burden, we can help our daughters appreciate what their bodies are capable of.
One way to do this is by celebrating this milestone with uplifting gifts that promote an understanding of their bodies, self-love, and wellness.
First period gift ideas
Boho Moon Notebook
Period tracker journals are awesome, but this moon notebook would be awesome if you think your daughter might like something a little less overt.
This delicate necklace is a sweet, but a not too obvious token of this milestone.
First Period Kit
Your daughter will need a mobile period kit anyway, so start her off with this adorable kit that even comes with supplies.
Self Love Journal for Girls
This journal for girls will help her remember to take care of herself during this new phase in her life.
STRONG self(ie) Teen Subscription Box
Whether you subscribe to this box regularly or do a one-off, a special occasion like starting a menstrual cycle deserves a little splurge!
A skincare kit is great for a first period gift because it encourages your daughter to pamper herself.
Other ways to celebrate a first period
- Host a first period party.
- Make or buy a period kit.
- Get her a period tracker journal. (Psss…download this free period tracker printable, or check out some of the best physical period tracker journals!)
- Spend time with her. THIS is the most important thing you can do for her!
The goal is empowerment
Whether you get your daughter period underwear, a heating pad, or a self-care kit, there are plenty of gift ideas that can make this milestone a more positive experience.
Let’s empower our daughters to embrace their bodies and periods with pride and confidence.
