Holiday Gifts for Little Girls.

By: Jen Shoop

*Mini last Christmas with her new “lectric kittar.” What can I say? She loves big metal. She has a mini HomePod in her bedroom and most mornings this past week, I’ve been entering to find her playing “Nirvana essentials.” Who is this rocker chick?!

I wrote a few weeks ago about a special morning my daughter and I spent poring over the American Girl holiday catalog, her socked feet swinging back and forth beneath us, and how I took that moment as a harbinger for things to come — a slow and intentional holiday season. I have accordingly already been getting organized for my children’s holiday gifts. I must say my daughter has been asking for this American Girl washer-dryer set (she flagged it last year and this one) and I just can’t fathom spending $175 on a playset I suspect will not find heavy use (?). I was thrilled to find this $65 one from Kidcraft, which is not only more attractive, but from a very reputable toy brand. (Right now, I am seeing a little coupon box appear beneath the Amazon page where you can save $16, bringing the total down to around $50!). I think I might treat her to the Bitty Baby seat, though — she loves her Bitty Baby doll so much! It is really special.

Below, a bunch of fabulous gifts for little girls — many of which mini already owns and loves, and the rest of which are on my radar for this holiday season!

  1. Before you buy a second Tonie, I highly suggest passing it down to Micro and looking into a Yoto player for Mini. We love ours, and the audio choices are amazing, as is the option to make your own cards with whatever music or audiobooks you want if the choices are limited for you. Yoto also can be used all the way through elementary easily, I feel Tonie loses on the longevity comparison!

    1. Thank you so much for the suggestion! I have not yet ordered the second Toniebox so will do some recon on this! Merci merci!

    1. My husband is OBSESSED with these — he had a bunch growing up and now has given my daughter a number of them. They are SO fun! I’ve enjoyed using them along with my daughter!

  2. This brings back memories of the year my daughter wanted the ‘’Amazing Amanda’ doll. It was one of the most coveted toys that year and on the top of her Santa wish list. Christmas morning arrives and she gasps with excitement and joy opening the gift and finding the doll inside. Shortly after putting it aside and never returning to it. I tucked the doll away in our coat closet and 2 weeks later returned and deposited the proceeds into her college fund, ha!
