This is my first time doing a girls gift guide! As a boy mom, I had to call in some reinforcements for this one but I’ve been assured by all my friends who have girls that their little ones from toddler to tween would appreciate all of these.
ONE: Rose Pink Letter Board She’ll love the endless personalized messages she can create with the 260 included characters on this letter board.
TWO: Pastel Rainbow Stacker My boys had the primary color version of this stacker and my little one (almost 5) still plays with it. It’s absolutely adorable on a dresser or bookshelf which cannot be said for all kids toys!
THREE: Cutie Stix Cut and Create Set If she likes to craft or make jewelry, this is the gift for her! This little gadget let’s her cut and core out the center of whole series of “stix”, turning them into unique beads. She’ll be stringing bracelets and necklaces for everyone in no time.
FOUR: Story Cubes The story telling fun is endless with Story Cubes. It’s kind of like the dice version of mad libs – roll the dice and let the imagination flow. This is a great gift for boys and girls alike and perfect for a travel activity because it packs down so small.
FIVE: Ada Twist, Scientist An adorable story about an inquisitive little girl full of hypotheses and science experiments. The rhyming text keeps kids’ attention and the storyline is anything but princess-like which is refreshing. We have this book as well as the 2 that preceded it (Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect) and my boys absolutely love them all.
SIX: Unicorn Pompom Bag Apparently girls age 5-8 are WAY into unicorns. This seemed to be a consistent theme among the moms of girls I spoke with so you can’t miss with this cute little bag. Incidentally I am not between the ages of 5-8 and I am also very into this bag.
SEVEN: Le Creueset Dutch Oven Toy An exact replica of the iconic dutch oven, these mini version are basically the cutest things I’ve ever seen. If she’s got a play kitchen, she needs this.
EIGHT: 3D Butterfly Stickers I LOVE these stickers! I’ve used them in lots of little girls’ rooms around a mirror or even en masse fluttering over a headboard. They’re inexpensive and look best when there’s a whole ton of them. Let her have at it. The more random the pattern the better the result.
NINE: Beyonce Pencils Ok so maybe I already ordered a set of these pencils for myself. But I think every girl big or small needs a pencil that says “Who run the world? GIRLS!” on it.
