I’ll offer the same caveat with my gift guide for girls as I did for the boys guide. Mimi is 18 months old (in a week) and pretty much every little girl we have to buy for is under the age of 5, so most of these items are geared towards younger girls … think toddler to kindergarten. And, to be honest, some of the toys I have seen for older girls are a little disturbing (see “Sweet Talking Ken ” and “ The Stylin’ Studio “). And don’t get me started on the Disney Princess Broom & Dust Pan Set or the Cleaning Trolley (which, sadly, are meant for girls closer to Mimi’s age).
Anyway, switching gears … here are my top picks for younger girls this holiday season:
My Very Own Name Book : This is hands-down my favorite gift to give to friends or family members who have had a baby; both Buddy and Mimi received these are newborns and they’re still some of our favorite books to read. But these make an excellent and thoughtful gift at any age. They also have other stories that can also be personalized (My Very Own Fairy Tale, My Very Own Pirate’s Tale, etc).
