I'm stumped on what to get my own DD for Christmas because her birthday is only the end of November I've used all my ideas for her birthday and everyone else asking what to get her for her birthday..

She has a stupid amount of dollys, she's getting a new playhouse with kitchen, new dolls house, arts and crafts, my little pony, tiniest pet shop all for her birthday.

She already has a joint Ipad with her brother along with an Ipod that plays games, we have bookcases full of books, loads of jigsaws/puzzles apart from Lego I know have no idea.

Give one gift for her birthday - the play house. Give one gift for her Christmas - the dolls house.

Outdoor stuff, trampoline, bike, swing for the garden?

The dolls house is coming from a family friend. Out of the list the bits from us are only the playhouse with kitchen, two tiniest pet shop sets.

We have a trampoline/sand pit/water pit/pool and playhouse in the back garden already, she got a doc mc stuffings bike for Christmas last year which she hasn't outgrown..

This is why I'm really struggling this year she hasn't outgrown anything that she already has, the playhouse and kitchen are only because the last ones got damaged so she needed new ones. My ds I've finished Christmas shopping for as his was nice and easy, the whole rest of the family is also done its just her that's got nothing for Christmas yet.

My DD has just turned 4 and loves Duplo. It gets played with more than anything else. The Knights castle and Cinderella's castle are both lovely.

A trunk of dressing up clothes? Playmobil?

Lego
Knex
Wooden Building blocks
Books

You can still give her the playhouse at xmas. She's (almost) 4 and won't pay much attention to who got her what.

There's no need to give her huge presents! My dd (4 at the start of December) loves stuff like stickers, stencils for drawing, books, washi tape of all things (!) and puzzles. For her birthday she's getting a styling head and for xmas a little camera. With other bits and pieces.

Sorry to hijack, but Believe where did you get stencils for your DD? Mine would love some but all the ones I can find are so intricate and I'm not sure she'd manage them. Mine loves washi tape too! smile

Give her the playhouse/kitchen for birthday and the pet shop stuff for Christmas or vice versa.

I agree with LEGO, as there's always new sets and ranges coming out. There's also handheld gaming consoles like the 3DS; if they're already playing games on the iPad, a 3DS shouldn't be hard to master at all.

Something edible is always a good idea too! Edible things come and go so it'll be like having something new.

Chattymummyhere Wed 11-Nov-15 17:13:31

3DS sounds good along with the lego NathalieM..

I'm not going to cut back on her birthday presents Notso and Believe we have only brought her 3 as it is.

theatre tickets
cinema vouchers
build a bear vouchers

There's a shop called hema which does nice basic animal stencil although I cannot find it on their website hmmi got them in store

these are quite good too

Believeitornot Wed 11-Nov-15 20:12:30

I think 3 is ok for gifts! Or just some smaller filler bits.

Get her a micro scooter. They are fab

DD2 will be 4 in December. For Christmas we've bought her a wooden rocking horse (main present), a doctors' kit, MLP playdough, 3 books, ticket to see Mary Poppins.

Board games, like Orchard Toys games or similar?
Craft stuff - either kits, or just general stuff?
DVDs of films she would like, or her favourite programmes? My dd is getting a My Little Pony dvd.

My DD is 4. The main thing she wants this year is disney princess guess who.
She's getting lots of smaller things as we have most of the big things. She loves arts and craft and playdoh. She's not into lego.
Somethings we have got are:
Playdoh sets
Aqua beads
Glitziglobes
Toddler doll
Barbie car and doll
Pram

What about an easel? Or drawing stuff? Art desk?

My DD is four the week before christmas. Across the two she is getting a bike, some lego, playmobil, a microphone and stand, pram, sticker books, globe, if any of those appeal?

Another recommendation for craft sets, especially the felt puppets etc.

My 3yo dd has asked for slime! She played with this at pre school and has not stopped talking about it. I have the recipe from her teacher and have a feeling it will be her favourite present. It will be hiding in the kitchen on Christmas morning.

My DD likes practical things that are just hers. Such as: a towel (some lovely children's ones at Zara home); soft furnishings (really! She'd like a gold duvet or cushion cover), crockery or cutlery. These are nice

She got a torch recently which she loves.

Does she do activites that you could get accessories for? Goggles, float aids for swimming? Helmet and crash gear for roller skating?

Also, recently got my DD this cardboard market shop from Ikea. She loves it, such great value!

VoyageOfDad Wed 11-Nov-15 21:32:23

I just read on another thread someone say their favourite thing, that they've bought, was an island in South America. grin

Now that'd be hard to wrap.

PennyHasNoSurname Wed 11-Nov-15 21:32:37

What about a doorway puppet theatre and hand puppets?

ilovehotsauce Wed 11-Nov-15 21:42:53

Space it out? Add smaller filler presents to bulk out the unwrapping of stuff.

What about a dressing up box?

A trip to a show? Disney on ice or a frozen singalong?
