    What about going to the $2 shop or Kmart and getting a whole lot of arts and crafts and making a craft box for her?

    Some of our presents around that age were puzzles (they were moving away from the 1 piece ones so needed more pieces), books, a scooter, craft stuff (cheap and easy – pipe cleaners, buttons, etc), doll with accessories, ‘kitchen stuff’ for outside (we went to the op shop and stocked up on old bowls, plates, spoons, containers and they love to make mud pies, etc in them), dress ups (op shop again!), duplo.

    Duplo was a big winner for us. Sometimes target and other places can have it on sale. Or even second hand since it is so durable. Playdough sets- I make my own playdough. An eisel. Kmart has a cheap one

    I second getting craft item from Kmart. I asked the same question for a boy a couple of weeks ago and when I went to Kmart, the range and ideas were huge!

    Garden kit - gloves, wheelbarrow, spade and some sunflower seeds to plant
    Dress ups - doesn't have to be bought costumes, put a box together with different hats, scarves, beads, bags etc...
