Let's get started with these great gift ideas for girls:
|(Via Amazon: Snap Circuits Jr. $37)|
I know, I know. This was included in the Gift Ideas for Boys post--it's just too good to not share with the girls. As I said before, this "game" is a must-have. It provides hours of endless fun and learning. It sounds corny, but my heart sings a little song when I hear/watch my kids using their brains to complete these cool projects. And the sense of pride that they show afterwards is priceless.
|(Zoomer Zuppies Robot from Target $30)|
Of course little girls can have fun playing with a dinosaur robot, but these puppies are just so stinking cute! I'd choose the puppy over a dinosaur every day of the week. This is "Scarlet" and she's only $30! I think these robots will provide good entertainment when the kids are in a rut.

For Horse-Crazy Girls Only
I don't remember ever being "horse-crazy" as a little girl, but from what I can tell, a lot of little girls like horses. Mine almost always brings home a book from the school library about horses and then she likes to repeat to me everything she's learned. It's kind of torturous because I'm not a huge fan of horses, but it's great to see her so passionate about something. This book will be an instant hit for horse-loving girls.
|(via Target: Our Generation Riding Outfit $15)|
Target has a great selection of clothes and accessories (and dolls!) that fit American Girl dolls and this riding outfit, complete with horse care accessories, is perfect for any little girl who has an American Girl doll or one like it (I just noticed that Costco now sells similar dolls.). Target's "Our Generation" line is pretty robust and you can't beat the price. They even have the horses for a fraction of the cost at the American Girl store.
|(via Amazon: Alex Needlepoint Butterfly $7)|
This looks like a great introduction to needlepoint and something my daughter could do nearly unsupervised. Plus, the end result is cute enough to hang in her room! Not bad for $7. Not bad at all.
|(via Amazon: My First Sewing Kit $18)|
My First Sewing Kit
Another winner from Alex is this sewing kit. My daughter has been asking to learn to sew, but I have to leave that to the grandma's since that skill seems to have skipped a generation! Reviewers state it's the perfect difficulty level for kids/beginners with cute projects that they can do by themselves.
|(via Dicks: Roller Derby Sparkle Lighted Roller Skates $43)|
Roller Derby Girls' Sparkle Lighted Roller Skates
What little girl wouldn't want a pair of roller skates--especially if they are bright white and pink and the wheels light up when you use them? I mean, hours of play (and exercise!) will be had with these babies.
So that's a little roundup of gift ideas for girls. I hope it helps someone out there who is coming up dry with ideas. Do you have anything to add? Leave it in the comments!
Thanks for reading :)
