Tired of Rainbow Loom? How about these American Girl Daisy Design Bracelets?
For the kid who loves Harry Potter, magic, and secret scribblings - a fancy journal with a gryphon on it - or any kind of cool notebook that elevates itself past the everyday.
I may, or may not, have had the awesomest brainstorm of the century when I came across this Fuji Instax Mini Camera and suggested it to this grandfather I know. In case, he was stuck on gift ideas. They come in black, blue, yellow, white, and pink! Also, duty demands that I also mention that Hello Kitty film exists.
For the 10 or 11 year old girl in your life, this new edition of 'Anne of Green Gables' is drop dead gorgeous. GORGEOUS. You should totally get all of them, or the first 3 books, to make a gift set.
Is your kid into all things spy related, like mine seems to be? I really don't know anything about kid spy gear, but this spy kit looks fun. As does this secret agent activity book.
puzzle from Djeco (LOVE Djeco anything!).
You know what's a great gift? That will keep going from age 3 until age almost 9? (I totally speak from experience.) PLAY FOOD. The gift that keeps on going, and going, and going.......
Saw 'This is the World' at the Anthro site, but it's nearly $10 more than what it's going for on Amazon. OH ANTHRO. Cough. This is so cool, I didn't know there was a single book that put together abridged versions of the famous M. Sasek travel books for kids into one volume!
Last year, Julia received this lap harp, and it's been hugely popular with her and anyone else who walks into the house. Plus, even if a kid doesn't really know how to play it very well, it still sounds pretty! Musical gifts are always A Fun Thing, but sometimes the noise they produce is Not A Fun Thing. But a harp always sounds great!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~SOOOOOOOOOO. Hope this gives you some holiday inspiration! If you know something I don't know, but should know, well for goodness sakes, don't be a holiday information hoarder. Share! Share so we can all lift ourselves up and out of the holiday panic pit!
Oh - one more thing. If you have a girl between the ages of 6 and 11. The Justice site. Omg, so tacky. So garish. So......anything that comes from it will DELIGHT your little girl.
