“The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.”

~ Neil Gaiman

November is almost over and December will be upon us before too long! Woven throughout the intricate beauty of Mother Nature’s dormant days are the warm and inspiring holidays that we celebrate for our religious faiths and family traditions. Anymore, the gifts found under the tree, unwrapped on consecutive days, exchanged between loving hands, and chosen for a worthy person less-fortunate than ourselves can be extra-special, inspiring the gift-receiver’s passion and unique interests. Giving gifts that connect with and embolden the girls (and boys!) in our lives can be a spark of joy and thread of hope, and just one more meaningful way we can instill self-confidence, pride, and dream-catching in the hearts and minds of children.

To help you with your gift-buying pursuits, here is a guide for blossoming personalities embodied by the Be Girls you love:
