Chinuch Hora'ah of the Day:
...It is worthwhile and proper for girls to begin lighting [Shabbos candles] on a Yom Tov so that they can bless Shehecheyanu while also [keeping in mind that it is for] the beginning of the fulfillment of the mitzvah of lighting Shabbos and Yom Tov candles. Those who are eager to begin earlier should buy the girl a new garment [on which she can recite Shehecheyanu].
