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.
I aim 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
Keep in mind that the first period gift does not have to be extravagant!
A small token like a card or a little gift just to say, “I recognize and honor this transition” is more than enough.
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
Let’s empower our daughters to embrace their bodies and periods with pride and confidence.
