Hey there! DD1 turns 4 in a couple weeks & everyone is asking for gift ideas. Honestly, I'm stumped. We have A LOT of toys thanks to the fact that my 2 girls are the only grandkids on either side of the family.
So far I have:
~ Lincoln Logs
~ dance shoes/leotard/tights (her classes start the week following her b-day)
~ art supplies, especially paint
Also, with the exception of my Mom, they need to be gifts that can be purchased in a regular store. I've tried suggesting stuff from places like Nova or other online stores & that just doesn't happen.
my dd turned 4 last week and the cutest gift she got was a tuppeware container full of supplies to mail her artwork to family and friends. There were envelopes, stamps, stickers, paper, boxes, markers and anything else that you can think of. It was super cute. also dress ups are the gift of choice around here.
I also have a newly minted 4-year-old in my house. Her favorite gifts were:
A Curious George clock (NOT digital) for her room
Hotwheels 4-lane race track plus new cars
New playdough and accessories
A craft kit
Cool new clothes/shoes (stuff mama won't spring for 'cause we don't usually buy new in this house!)
With every gift she opened she expressed a desire for a board game, so I know that was a top thing on her list.
I too am of the opinion that you can never have too many books, but dd1 already has a bookcase full, so we rarely get them as gifts, I think because folks don't know what she already has. With that in mind I set up an Amazon wish list, for my reference as much as anything else, so I could give good suggestions when asked.
Wife to Thomas, WAH mama to Sofia Rose 8/04, Ellen Marie 10/07, her twin sister Amalie Joy lost 7/07 , and Maya Grace and Hannah Miriam 4/10
I was feeling seriously creativity deprived earlier today.
This list will probably end up being the holiday list for the girls as well. Some online stuff is fine. My Mom has gotten to the point where she prefers to shop online & she did get the girls some stuff from Hearthsong last year for x-mas.
