The first item on her wish list was the Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss Gift Set. She enjoys flipping through the Victoria Secret catalog. She thinks this lip gloss set is kind of cool to put on her Christmas wish list. She is not allowed to have any kind of make up whatsoever. I don't mind getting it for her so she can play dress up with the neighbor kids or her friends when they come over. It’s not just about the educational stuff all the time. She should have some fun at her age. Continue reading...
The second item on her wish list was the iPod. This was a tough decision. It’s not because we can or can’t get it for her, it’s because SHOULD we get it for her? It took me the longest time to understand that communication is very important to any relationship including the parent-child relationship. Kids around the country are getting high on the technology. I want her to communicate with us about her days at school, what she did that day. I want to stay connected with her through communication instead of letting her eyes glued to a screen. Although we decided to get the pink Apple iPod Nano for her but there certainly will be rules of use. It’s a cool gadget to have as long as she uses it right.
The last item on her wish list was book. I am very thankful that she expresses her interest in reading at a very young age. If your child loves reading, I would recommend the “alicious” book series. What she has so far is the Pinkalicious, the Goldalicious and we just got her the Purplicious for Christmas. I know she’ll enjoy it. Getting a kid movie is another great option for young kids. I can’t tell you when was the last time we actually saw an adult movie at the movie theatre. I have watched enough cartoons and kid movies in my life. My favorite kid movie up until this point is the Despicable Me. This movie is super hilarious and it sure will entertain everyone in your family.
Helping her to stay active is also high on my list. We are taking the little one to ski for the first time next month. Therefore, getting the right ski gear is a must. On a related note, if you happen to see The North Face Girls' Marjorie Triclimate Jacket in XXS, please DM me. We have been looking everywhere for this jacket in size XXS but they all sold out (even online). She is wearing the XS. We plan to keep it and make it work but it would be wonderful if we can find a smaller size. Click to buy the The North Face Thermal Beanie Hats and The North Face Girl's Montana Glove
We also got her the Roller Derby Girls Tracer Adjustable Inline Skate. It’s just another way to stay active. Sometimes choosing the right gift for kids becomes overwhelmed especially when you’re not a parent. Please only use this as a guide. I don't (by all means) think these are the best gifts for kids. The “right” gifts are depending on the age bracket, different ages have different priorities and also depending on your perspective. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and lets the Christmas countdown begins
