1. A Fabulous Dress-Up Kit
When my siblings and I were kids, my mom made us all these incredible dress-up kits. She sourced vintage hats, gloves, scarves and other accessories from consignment shops and flea markets. Then she packed everything into antique leather suitcases, and those kits now belong to her grandchildren. If your creative bone is closer to mine than my mom’s (a bit atrophied), these tutus are a fun jumping off point.
Do you need to know more? Since it may be years (or never) until she can afford the real thing, these designer paper dolls are a great place to the runway.
Thanks to the internet, you can try on twenty different outfits by uploading a photo and inputting your dimensions. But before then internet, you had to mix-and-match possible outfits using an unwrapped crayon and a set of fashion plates. You will have the best fun memory lane has to offer demonstrating this gift.
Magnetic dress-up dolls have become the paper dolls of this generation. And while there are many to choose from, they are not all created equal. Melissa & Doug make theirs to stand the test of time. The sets in our home have taken seven years of beatings and show very few signs of wear.
I bought this for my daughter when a friend had an Usborne book party on Facebook, and my daughter loves it! It’s small enough to fit into a stocking or a small purse, and it provides hours of independent play on car rides and grocery lines. Activities encourage designing accessories, patterns and even hairstyles.
Facebook is filled with videos of crafting prodigies making Barbie shoes out of hot glue and swimsuits out of balloons. But the projects in this book are truly easy to recreate. And when she’s finished creating, your little fashionista will be able to try out her designs in her own doll fashion show.
This gem is just as much fun now as it was in the ’90s. And with a pair of old jeans, sneakers or backpack, the be Dazzler will have a fashionable blast. Just be sure to let her know that she needs to ask before she be Dazzles.
If you throw in a pack of white t-shirts, you just might outdo Santa. These markers will let her bring her creations to life and make the whole family her models. Just be sure she understands that her designs need to stay off of the carpet and couches.
I’ve saved the best for (almost) last! The size is just the first reason this sewing machine is the perfect starter tool for your young seamstress. It’s price point is on target, and it even comes with an online class. And if that deal isn’t sweet enough, Singer has also thrown in a beginner’s tote bag sewing project to get the party started.
If you go for the machine, grab this book too, and let her unwrap it first. She’ll only be confused for about a second. Once she realizes there’s another gift to follow, you may want to hold your ears!
Choosing The Perfect Gift In The Midst Of Holiday Marketing Madness
Thousands of businesses compete for children’s attention every day. And they all turn up the dial in the lead-up to Christmas. The result is a long list of wants. And it’s hard to know what a child will truly enjoy versus what will be in next year’s yard sale.
But you can ignore the distractions. Choose your gifts based on the things that a child shows interest in the other twelve months of the year. And you’ll both win. So grab a cup of coffee, and imagine that little girl’s face as she opens up each of the gifts I’ve shared. And when you come to the mental image where she’s wearing the biggest smile, you’ve found your winner!
Then all you’ll have left to do to is dress-up that perfect gift for your little girl who loves fashion with ribbons and paper as pretty as she is!
