Some of these gift ideas for girls were received in exchange for inclusion in the gift guide. Others we just love. Some items were donated to local organizations or national organizations for those less fortunate.
American Girl Clothing:
American Girl dolls are a toy that every little girl wants at one point in her life. Not only are they beautiful, special, and lots of fun, but the fact that your child and their doll can dress the same is pretty darn neat.
This holiday season is the perfect time to let your little girl dress the same as her doll.
With the super cute holiday dresses available from American Girl, there is no reason not to!
Red is the perfect holiday color, and when you pair that with sparkles, you have the perfect dress. Available for big girls and little girls, plus their dolls – this is one dress that you don’t want to miss out on.
The little girls Twinkle Party Dress features a knit bodice with puff sleeves, an adorable bow, and a sparkly mesh bubble-skirt. Available with a matching satin-covered headband, this outfit is sure to be a favorite. Available in sizes 3 to 7, it matches perfectly with the doll version (that fits the Bitty Baby and Baby Twins).
For bigger girls, the Sparkle Party Dress is where it’s at. This fancy, sleeveless dress has just the right amount of sparkly in the mesh bubble-skirt, and ties in the back with a satin sash. Finish off the look with a luxurious cream-colored shrug and matching rhinestone-studded satin headband. This fabulous outfit is available in girls sizes 6 to 16, and the matching ensemble is available for the larger American Girl dolls.
This is one of my favorite things my girls will be getting this year for Christmas. I’ve been excited about this company and their products since I heard the first inklings of a toy concept that encourages engineering and spatial thinking…for girls. I’m not necessarily one to buy into the boy / girl toy thing but I’ve long said that many “girl” versions of toys that echo the concepts in using GoldieBlox seem to be dumbed down. Goldie Blox has taken those skills and elevated them on a whole new level. It’s no wonder they are selling like hotcakes.

Stickers are lots fun, but let’s face it – they can be a bit frustrating. As a little kid, I cannot even tell you how many times I stuck my favorite sticker down on something crooked and ripped it trying to get it back it off.
Plus, most sticker packages offer the same sticker many times, instead of providing a bigger variety. This is great if you like the main sticker, but most of the time I prefer something a little more unique.
Gelarti has a fun solution to these traditional sticker downfalls.
It all starts with creating your own stickers. The Gelarti Designer Studio has everything that you need to create these mini masterpieces.
There are 6 sticker sheets filled with a variety of fun images. Simply pick the sheet with your favorites and place it on the rotating platform. Using the 3 different colored paint pens and the glitter paint, get to work making it pretty and perfect!
Finish off the look of your sticker by swirling the paint with the marbling tool and sticking on one of the fun gems or embellishment pieces that come with the kit.
After letting your unique, created-by-you stickers dry completely, stick it wherever you want.
Yup, you read that right.
No, I haven’t gone crazy – these fabulous stickers are removable and re-stickable! They can be placed wherever your heart desires because it you don’t like it, you can simply move it – without having a ripped sticker or sticky residue left behind.
Zelfs Venus Flytrap Spin Salon
Zelfs are a little toy full of big, imaginative fun. Only coming out when the twilight moon is in the sky, they live in a magical secret garden filled with, well, magic. Each Zelf has a head full of wild hair, and their own special powers.
But let’s focus for a moment on that hair! It’s wild. It’s crazy. It’s tons fun. It is almost as tall as the Zelf itself (and oftentimes taller), and can really get out of control. These magical little creatures need someone to help them tame their mane!
Thankfully, Zardenia – their magical garden – has a Salon!
The Venus Flytrap Spin Salon is the perfect place in town to get a hip new style. You can curl, crimp and primp each and every Zelf that comes in and sits in the funky purple and green chair. Feed their hair into the mouth of the fly trap, push the button and let the spinning – ur – styling begin!
