    Girls Gonna Go Wild For These Gift Ideas

    If you ask my 5 year old about me, she will tell you the only person who gives better gifts than me would be Santa, or maybe Grandma (dammit Janet...) Keep on scrolling and you will see why! These are my favorite picks for girl gifts this year!

    Like what ya see? Hop on over to Sweet Silly Sara where I have a ton of other great gift guides that have been inspired by items gifted for a gift guide.

    Glitz and Glam


    My daughter has a pretty interesting room. It looks like Toys R Us came over to die in her domain. So, I felt like the BloChair was the perfect gift for her. Well, this gift is kinda self serving too. Now when I go in her room I have somewhere comfy to sit and cry over the mess of toys that always awaits me in there. This mainstays chair is available at Walmart this holiday season for a festive throwback item for the bedroom and beyond.

    Hypnotized and Mesmerized

    Hammacher Schlemmer / Via

    My kids have been begging for a fish tank. They force me to check the fish out at Meijer everytime we go grocery shopping, but I have had bad luck with fish in the past and can't bring one home to die at my hands. So when I saw this Hypnotic Jellyfish Aquarium at Hammacher Schlemmer, I knew this was a must have item for my girl. This is such a cool gift. Two synthetic jellyfish dance in the currents while glowing with 18 LED lights. It adds the flair of afishank to her room without the responsibility of real jellyfish. Find this at Hammacher Schlemmer for under $90 this holiday season.

    Bitty Babies by American Girl

    American Girl / Via

    My daughter has been star struck by all things American Girl for years. Everytime we go to Easton Town Center she loses her cool, because it is basically like the motherland for little girls. This year she is ready for her own American Girl and the Bitty Baby is a perfect choice. Retailing at about $60, these baby dolls are so stinkin' cute. Find them in store or online to add a whole lot of happy to her Christmas morning. Naturally you will want to get some cute as a button outfits for her Bitty Baby, which are about $20 each. We love the Merry and Bright Party Dress option.

    A Grand Shopping Experience

    Playsets are always a big hit with my kids. I love encouraging dramatic play so the Calico Critters playset is high on my list of must have toys for the holiday season. This set is big! And it looks like so much fun for the cute little critters that my daughter adores. Find it at major retailers like Target and Walmart for under $100.
