Itâ€™s hard to believe, but the holidays are right around the corner. Â Are you one of the overachievers who has all of your Christmas shopping done by June? Â Or are you like the majority of us who wait until the last minute and wrack our brains for gift ideas for the family? Â
If youâ€™re the latter, and have a little girl or teen on your list this year, we have you covered. Â Here are some great gift ideas for your little princess this holiday season:
GoldieBloxÂ specializes in engineering toys for girls, ages 4-12. Â The toys introduce engineering concepts through storytelling and building, encouraging girls toÂ stay interested in scienceÂ and math. Â Boys arenâ€™t the only ones who like to build! Â
2. An Electronics Kit
This is a greatÂ kitÂ to encourage girls to stay interested in science andÂ learn how things work. Â Theyâ€™ll figure out how to rig up servos, buzzers, switches, inverters, and a bunch of other electronic components that you may not understand yourself. Â
3. A Drawing Tablet
If the girl on your list is into fashion, treat her to a pair ofÂ Rothyâ€™s loafer shoes for girls. Â These eco-friendly shoes are adorable and comfortable. Â Sheâ€™ll love them, and you can even get yourself a matching pair if youâ€™re so inclined.
5. A Gift Set
Bath productsÂ make great gifts for girls of any age. Â Lotions, soaps, bath bombs, and shower gels â€“ whatâ€™s not to love?
6. An Instant Camera
Kids love taking pictures, and anÂ instant cameraÂ makes the perfect gift. Â She can test out her photography skills, and get instant gratification with the actual print that comes out. Â Donâ€™t forget the film with this one!
7. LOL Surprise Balls
LOL Surprise BallsÂ are balls that have mini dolls in the center and wrapped in multiple layers of cellophane. Â As they unwrap each layer of cellophane, surprises like stickers and other treasures are revealed. Â These are especially great for the little girls who love to watch the unboxing videos on YouTube. Â
Another surprise toy girls love isÂ Hatchimals. When the egg is ready to hatch, your little one can crack it open to reveal the little animal inside. Â These are quite popular with the younger set.
9. Teddy Ruxpin
Remember him? Â If youâ€™re a child of the 80s, you probably do. Â Well, heâ€™s back! Â And he may be exactly what the kiddo on your list wants. Â
11. Emoji Pillows
Great for little girls up to tweens. Â Because theyÂ loveÂ emojis.
Books make excellent gifts. Â Choose a classic you loved from your own childhood that she may not have, or a universal favorite likeÂ The Giving Tree. Â And make it extra special by writing a little note to her inside. Â Reading is a gift that keeps on giving. Â
13. Interactive Dolls
Let her play â€œmommyâ€ and give her an interactive dollÂ like theÂ Luvabella. It takes interactive to a whole new level. Â This doll can look around, eat, be burped, be taught to speak, and even show emotions. Â She lifts her arms up when she wants to be held, and giggles when tickled. Â She even has a heartbeat. Â And little girls will adore her. Â
14. Virtual Reality Viewers
Remember the View-Master we had as kids? Â I loved that thing. Â You wonâ€™t believe how far itâ€™s come! Â TheÂ View-Master VRÂ is pretty amazing. Â Itâ€™s affordable, cool, and is compatible with most smartphones. Â This one will be a hit!
Board games never go out of style, even for teenagers. Â There are some really fun ones like Speak Out thatâ€™ll have players dying of laughter. Â Itâ€™s nice to have technology-free entertainment sometimes where people can just connect over simple games. Â Family game nights are priceless! Â
Honestly, this list could go on and on. Â But this is a good start, and thereâ€™s going to be at least one lucky girl on your list this season!
