Top 5 Useful Gifts For Girls This Christmas

Like if this guide is helpful

With two young nieces, I always find it tricky to think of useful things to buy them at Christmas.

1. Books
Forgive me if it seems that I'm stating the obvious but for me books and stories are the best thing to give to children, particularly if they can bring back a bit of nostalgia for yourself. Winnie The Pooh, That's Not My Princess, The Famous Five and The many Roald Dahl classics are to name but a few. Make story time a favourite for your little ones this Christmas!

2. Clothes

It's something that you know they'll unwrap and toss aside looking for the next cool toy, but it's something they're parents will certainly thank you for. Not forgetting of course the Disney Princess Dresses most girls pray for these days, well ............ who wouldn't want to dress as a princess all day long?!
I enjoy shopping for the girls as I think kids clothes are a lot more stylish than they were when I was young, albeit my Mum used to dress me in Clown clothes so I relish in the chance to save them from embarrassing photos to look back on :p.

3. Getting Creative

Painting, drawing, arts and crafts, PlayDoh, jewellery making and I could go on. Great activities to keep them entertained (and quiet at times), another way to bring out their imaginative side.

4. Board Games

When I was younger, it was a fundamental rule that Friday night was family game night, this obviously being long before sky t.v and the internet took over peoples lives. As I said previously, I do have a love of nostalgia......... Monopoly, Operation, Pop Up Pirate, Hungry Hungry Hippos - gives me a smile just saying their names. There's nothing better than getting the family together for a good laugh and bit of competition ;).

5. Outdoor Activities

Ok, so it may not be the nicest weather to be running around outside with the little ones, but Christmas is a better time than any to get them riding their first bike or trike and exploring their new climbing frame. And for all us big kids, lets be honest these aren't just for the kids amusement :D.
