5 min read

If you have a little girl of your own, then it is probably fairly easy to choose presents for her – you know exactly what she likes and exactly what she wants.

However, if not, and you are shopping for a friend, neighbour, relative or someone else, then it can be quite a struggle heading into the toy store and not knowing what to select. So let us make it a little easier for you. Below are some of the best gifts for little girls, for Christmas, birthdays or any other occasion worth celebrating.

I love giving costumes (boy or girl) to little kids – it sparks imaginative play and lets them dream big. There are thousands of different costumes to choose from – check out some of our Bookweek articles for ideas!

If you can’t decide what to buy, there is a 24-piece Girls Dress Up Trunk available from Amazon (pictured below).

Some of the best online shops to find costumes include:

4. Vintage Play Kitchen

No, I’m not setting up gender stereotypes, but all little girls and boys will love this adorable Wooden Play Kitchen Set. Cooking and other ‘make-believe’ items are also usually a big hit for little girls. You can get all sorts of cooking accessories, fake food, shopping trolleys and cash registers.

There are also excellent kitchen sets that are quite affordable, depending on how much you are willing to spend. We love this Kidkraft Vintage Play Kitchen from Amazon.

6. A New Bike

The tradition of buying every kid a bike has gone out of vogue – but we really need to get out kids riding again!

We love this Duel Suspension Cyclops bike from Ozsale. You can take that bike anywhere!

7. A Cubby House

Trying to think of a good way to get the kids off the screen out outside playing over Summer? Why not grab a cubby house.  I have fond memories of my treehouse as a kid – we spent hours hiding from our parents, reading books and swinging on the tyre underneath – that is until a nest of paper wasps decided to move in close by.  Note to self – never try and swat paper wasps with a badminton racket!

Our Pick: This Feber Princess Super Barbie Palace is absolutely epic!

All little girls need a pair of ballerina jiffies. Cute and comfortable – she can even sleep with them on (maybe)…

We love this pair from Ozsale – only $21.77.

9. A Kids Baking Set

If the little girl in your life loves to bake (and what kid doesn’t love to bake?) – this adorable baking set from Amazon can be your pick.
