“Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what little girls are made of”
There’s nothing better than seeing your daughter, niece or god daughter opening up her gift on Christmas morning and seeing the look of pure joy on her face.
That’s the fun part – it’s the whole getting to the shops part that’s not particularly fun. Over the Christmas period the shops will inevitably be crowded and full of screaming children demanding that they get this or that; harassed parents who can’t remember what the little ones wrote on their Christmas list and frustrated shop assistants who’ve heard “Jingle Bells” one too many times to stay sane. That doesn’t sound like much fun, does it?
Buying Christmas gifts online is the ultimate solution – hell you don’t even need to leave home. There are various sites out there on which you can buy Christmas gifts for kids online and most will advise you what to get the little princess according to her age, you wouldn’t want to buy her something that was last cool when you were a kid, would you?
Some of these online gift finding services will even wrap and deliver the prezzie with a hand written card, perfect for those who begin to feel a panic attack set in when surrounded by rolls of Christmassy paper and sellotape. Finding a Christmas gift for the little girl in your life could not be easier.
Top Five Christmas Gift Ideas for Little Girls
To make this festive season a little more fun and a little less frustrating here’s a list of fantastic gift ideas for girls:
Girls love jewellery no matter how young or old they are. Fortunately buying jewellery for the little ones won’t break the bank. They love sparkly sets of stick on earrings, bangles, beads, lockets and rings – you’ll never go wrong with this option.
Girls also love to play dress up. If she’s seriously in to fairy princesses this year get her a little outfit that she can parade around in with a wand and perhaps a crown – she’ll feel like the princess she is in no time. There are loads of little outfits out there from her favourite cartoon hero, to her ultimate girly fantasy – and don’t forget a pair of grown up little fluffy or sparkly heels are always a winner. If she’s a little older, and you should always ask for the parents’ consent here, you could get her a little makeup set – they love to emulate their mums and having their own fun makeup will make them feel all grown up.
Educational & Games
Learning doesn’t have to be boring, in fact educational gifts always go down a treat – and it’s not only the kids but the parents who’ll love you too. A set of books, an artists easel and a paint set, crayons, colouring in books, building blocks, puzzles or a chemistry set all make good Christmas gifts for girls.
All kids love games – whether they’re board games or games they can play outside. Games are an especially good gift suggestion if there’s more than one kid in the family. Try looking for games that they can play together like kid’s scrabble, swing ball, mini golf, twister or magic cards. Preferably break them out when the adults are looking for a bit of peace and quite – which tends to happen quite often over the festive season.
Dolls are always a great idea when looking for a Christmas gift for a little girl. One thing you need to remember that dolls are not simply little plastic babies anymore. They come in every shape and size, they cry, they eat, they walk and talk, some of them look like disco divas and others like punks or emos (scary I know) so you’ll need to browse through the options on offer and select one. If you get lost just give her mum a call she’ll know which one will go down best because rest assured she’s been listening to the “I want a new doll” for a few weeks now.
These are winners with the younger set. Buying a fluffy, cuddly toy for your little princess to snuggle with as she watches telly or dreams her big dreams at night is a good gift idea. I’m sure that if you think back to your childhood you’ll remember how much you treasured your favourite soft toy (mine was a bear named Rupert – original, I know) Give a gift that will be loved as much as you loved it this Christmas.
Little girls love to play make believe. They want to emulate their parents, their older siblings and even what they see on TV. They love playing “house” or going to “work” by playing with their doctor or chef sets. From their pretend ovens, to their tiny grow your own garden sets, and doctors’ medical bags the kids will be in their own little fantasy world for hours at a time.
So now that you’re armed with all the right info, buying Christmas gifts for the girls in your life should be less of a stressful experience this year.
Good Luck & Happy Holidays!
