One of the best parts of the holiday season is spending time with the people you love most. From marathoning festive movies to adventuring in the great outdoors with a cup of cocoa in hand, there's literally no shortage of spirited holiday activities to plan with your fam.

No matter what your crew is up to this holiday season, winter represents an opportunity to hit 'pause' on work and school, and create memories that last a lifetime. Even though you may be on break from the daily grind, building your kids up to feel confident and empowered is a full-time job, something that's especially important when it comes to parents with daughters.

This year, start the holiday season off right by surprising your girl with an outfit that will make her feel like she can do anything. She shouldn't have to choose between looking great and feeling unstoppable, and with Athleta Girl, she won't have to!

Whether your daughter is on a mission to build the perfect snowman or is vying to finally win the family bake-off, keep scrolling for looks that your girl will love to wear.

A day at the ice rink is a festive way to spend time together and get your heart pumping in cold winter temperatures. Whether your daughter is an aspiring figure skater or it’s her first time on blades, she'll feel bundled up and cute in these essentials as she glides her way around the rink.

With a faux fur lining and thumb holes to keep her hands warm without limiting dexterity, this cozy wrap goes perfectly with a pair of super soft performance wear tights. Add a pop of flower power with these double runner skates and top it all off with some kitty earmuffs to keep her toasty.

Some of the tastiest (and messiest) winter memories can be made while mixing up a fresh batch of cookies. Whether she's decorating gingerbread people or sneaking bites of dough, give your daughter everything she needs to come to the kitchen prepared for all that baking fun.

These super stretchy, lightweight favorites will help her to mix, roll, and decorate her way to her best cookies yet. Keep her hair off her face with a stay-put headband and add an apron as the finishing touch to make her feel like a real professional.

Dashing through the snow can be an invigorating way to spend some quality family time outside, that is, as long as your daughter is rocking the right gear. These essentials will keep your girl warm and dry so she can focus all her attention on having fun.

Fleece and sherpa offer the perfect base layers for staying warm and active outdoors. Top them off with a reversible coat and shimmery insulated boots for an outfit that's as functional as it is fashionable.

The secret to a holiday shopping trip in the city is to wear clothes that are equally chic and comfortable. Start from the ground up with one of the biggest trends in footwear this season: a mid-sneaker that offers all the comfort of a sneaker with all the style of a bootie.

Add on a great pair of moto-detail leggings, a hoodie that sparkles, and a fun holographic backpack, and your girl will be all set to shop 'til she drops.
