DD is 9 and has asked for a bag, some necklaces and bracelets, some Beanie Boo toys and “a big soft elephant”. I’m going to but her lots of little things like this because DS who is 10 wants a laptop, a Nintendo switch (he won’t be getting them) but I am happy to get DD bits and pieces and teddies before she is too old to want them.
My 7 year old wants a camera and my 9 year old wants a new scooter. I’m also putting together a big box of craft stuff as a joint preset, and have got them both a make up bag with some cheap make up in.
Things they’ve liked in the past; heelies, roller skates, tablets, Lego, sylvanian families, a styling head with hair accessories, calligraphy set and walkie talkies.
I don't have an 8yo daughter, but here are my suggestions: Subscription to Jaqueline Wilson magazine Zookeeper experience at nearest zoo A watch Cake-pop making machine A craft kit such as bracelet making, bath bomb making, sewing/knitting... Tickets to see a musical
I'm having the same problem with my 8 year old dd! She has asked for a slime set, marvin magic set, a beanbag and Jojo siwa book. First year she has no big list I have relatives asking me what to buy her and I'm stuck! Will keep an eye on this thread.
My 8 year old Dd is getting A keyboard piano Brainbox Animals game Horrible Histories boxset Holly Webb books. The spooky looking ones. 'Lily' etc My little pony books and annual MLP figures One of those big Ty beanie soft toys A mountain of stationery And a filofax (bizarre request but she is obsessed with them) which I'm going to fill with accessories. Pretty dividers, novelty paperclips, sticker sheets, planner band and pretty paper.
She'll get Lego and more books from family I expect.
I'm enjoying shopping for her this year. Finally starting to see an end to the plastic crap!
is there any thing she really loves to do like horse riding or adventuring or something because there are lots of experience gifts you could get her . Buyagift is a great website if you are looking for a experience Hope this helps x
