    Default What to get 4yo girl?

    So DD1 is invited to a 4th birthday party, and despite having a nearly 4 year old daughter, I have no idea what to get
    Suggestions? I want something 'different' but thoughtful.

    Etsy and Madeit have lovely fabric pencil/crayon roll up storage sets that look really lovely. My 3yo loves drawing and colouring in the car - although not sure about 4yos?

    How much do you want to spend B&B?

    You could put together a small handbag or a treasure box with a brush, pretty hair lackies,clips and ribbons. I've done this a couple of times and the girls usually love it. My eldest (she's 5) LOVES handbags and treasure boxes, etc.

    Some drawing supplies, I only buy Crayola because of the "washable" aspect! But you could also buy a sketch book and cover it with some contact paper and make a nametag (printed off the computer) with her name on it? I have done this several times for friends and it's always a hit.

    How crafty are you? You could sew buttons onto a plain cotton bag, so that the buttons form her name.

    Otherwise there's always the generic girls toys - barbies, my little pony, lollalopsy (sp?), zhu zhu pets, lego, etc.

    My generic fallback is always hair accessories or wooden jewellery. Stuff that has potential to last a few years.

    Another cool present might be - depending in parents and house - is a little plant. A pansy or a herb or so something low maintenance in a nice pot they can be in charge of looking after.

    Or a puzzle?

    Presents that are always are hit - craft stuff eg beading/jewellery making, a canvas and paints, and kits to make things found in stores like lincraft.
    Books are also a winner.
    Hair accessories is also a safe bet. Board games and puzzles are good too.

    Last year for dd's birthday the things she loved the most was art stuff. Ask the parents what she is into or needs that's always what I do.

    How late is to late for online shopping? I have seen these little name bracelets and will be buying a few this year for 4 yr old girls I know. This lady is in southwest WA and could maybe ship them express post?
