I love Christmas, and the majority of it is thanks to my gorgeous little Goddaughters. Father Christmas has visited them this year already, and they are so excited by the festive season that it makes the whole thing magical.
I find them very difficult to buy for though, because I don't want them to think of me as their out of touch Godmother! I want to be able to gift them thoughtful things that they will like, so I think long and hard about it.
This year has been slightly difficult, and I remembered late that although I had got Lilly birthday presents I hadn't got her much for Christmas. I have solved the problem with some " I Love Niall" One Direction pjs (crowdpleaser for 7 year olds!) but below are some more ideas for the precocious tween in your life.
Lilly is old before her years and loves girly things that she feels are adult. This owl shaped lip balm is cute and will make her feel adult while still being cute and girly. The Hello Kitty jumper is right up her street, and to appeal to her One Direction hysteria the backpack is great for all her school stuff. The I Heart Dance stickers will satisfy the tween need to stick things all over the place, and the Princessy watch will help her with her telling the time while still being cute. The Gingerbread house is something we could do together on Christmas Eve - she loves crafting but we need to make sure its relevant to her age or else she gets bored and leaves.
FOR YOUNGER LITTLE PRINCESSES
My littlest Goddaughter is still a baby at three, so the gifts I would choose for her would be mich different. Minnie Mouse and Peppa Pig are still firm favourites, but this penguin hottie is the cutest thing and i can picture her snuggled up in her bed with this guy. I also really like the idea of getting a piggy bank for her so that if I give her money she can store it in there for a rainy day.
What have you bought? Is your Christmas shopping done?
