20+ Gift Ideas for Primary School Aged Girls

They are no longer little kids, but not yet grown up – so getting the right balance of gift is quite hard…

So your girls are pretty much grown up – not little kids, but not quite teens. They are too old for toys and too young for brand-name makeup and expensive perfume. And buying gifts for them takes you a lot of time to think!

But worry no more because, we asked our fans and followers of Stay at Home Mum what are the best gifts that you will be buying for your princesses for Christmas this year, and these is what they suggest!

1. Get Their Ears Pierced

Provided you are happy for them to get it done, and they are old enough to take care of them, getting their ears pierced is a really great gift idea.  You can also let them choose the earrings of their choice.  The first pair of earrings a girl has should be reasonable good quality to help prevent any infections in the ear. Take your girl to a professional piercer rather than getting them done at the local chemist or hairdresser (although some of these places do have fully trained staff – just check their credentials and certification!)
