CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR GIRLS

I remember when I was younger my mum would give me and my brother a Christmas Argos catalogue each and a pen. I’d sit happily entertained for an hour drawing circles on everything I’d seen on the TV adverts, especially the Toys’r’us one. She was clever, it never occurred to me that I was filling my Christmas list in.

 

Having your kids write a Christmas wish list is one of the smartest moves you can make and It’s helped me hugely with my daughter this year. I always find I struggle to buy for at least one of them. Make sure however that your tradition isn’t to put the list in the post box, we like to leave ours by the fire for the elves to collect and I know friends actually set their kids letters alight in the fire place.

I managed to get some of what she’s asked for and thought I’d share a few things with you. Hopefully, it’s a bit of inspiration and encouragement in finding that perfect present if you’re feeling a little lost. Christmas gift ideas for girls.

HEELY’S

Described as fun, easy to ride and great for co-ordination. Heely’s were on Miss L’s Christmas list last year but I was terrified she’d break a bone. She has zero co-ordination on normal skates. I’m hoping that these being lower to the floor will give her a fighting chance of stay vertical. The worry’s still there but I don’t think I can push it back another year. I know full well she’ll try and wear them for school, she can think again haha!

I’d be interested to hear how your daughters got on with them.

TSUM TSUM

Tsum Tsum or Tsoom Tsoom are the Japanese craze that has taken off in a big way. As a Disney fan, yes I know the words to most songs lol, I think these little guys are adorable. I’d be pretty tempted to have my own. Miss L will have to look after them well otherwise they may find themselves in a new collection. Haha!

BOOKS

Christmas gift ideas for girls The Secret of Nightingale Wood

“1919. Mama is ill. Father has taken a job abroad. Nanny Jane is too busy to pay any attention to Henrietta and the things she sees – or thinks she sees – in the shadows of their new home, Hope House. All alone, with only stories for company, Henry discovers that Hope House is full of strange secrets: a forgotten attic, ghostly figures, mysterious firelight that flickers in the trees beyond the garden. One night she ventures into the darkness of Nightingale Wood. What she finds there will change her whole world …”


Christmas gift ideas for girls The uncommoners

“When their grandmother Sylvie is rushed to hospital, Ivy Sparrow and her annoying big brother Seb cannot imagine what adventure lies in store. Returning to Sylvie’s house, they find it has been ransacked by unknown intruders – before a mysterious feather scratches an ominous message onto the kitchen wall. A very strange policeman turns up on the scene, determined to apprehend them . . . with a toilet brush. Ivy and Seb make their escape – only to find themselves in a completely uncommon world, where ordinary objects have amazing powers. The forces of evil are closing in fast, and Ivy and Seb must get to the bottom of a family secret . . . before it’s too late.

I’m such a bookworm and I’m that parent that buy’s kids books for birthdays instead of toys. Sorry kids! I just think that kids need to get lost in imagination. The Secret of Nightingale Wood was recommended by two of the ladies  working in Waterstone’s. Both books have really good Amazon reviews on so I’m looking forward to reading them after Miss L.

FIRST GUITAR

Miss L has always been a little performer, she loves taking part in school plays and singing, mainly out of tune, at the top of her voice. She was having piano lessons but didn’t want to carry them on after the second year. I think wanting a guitar has much to do with YouTube vloggers she follows, fingers crossed she picks it up quickly.

I’d love to hear what Christmas gifts you bought for your daughters, nieces, etc and did you get it right? We all know that fear of not buying that ‘one’ present.

Have the most amazing Christmas. Christmas gift ideas for girls.
