Well, by hook or by crook I have managed to pull together a few ideas of what to buy for a 10 year old girl’s birthday . . . Let’s just skip the part where I am in denial that my ‘little’ girl is going to be 10 years old in a few weeks time, it just doesn’t seem possible?! That aside, buying presents for a ‘little girl’ was always really easy; frilly skirts, baby dolls and pretend playsets. I am finding that 10 years old is actually quite a difficult age to buy for, she is no longer in the little girl category but she hasn’t quite made it to the realm of the teenager either?
Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition
This wasn’t on my initial birthday list for Lillie but when Albie knocked his glass of milk over last week it went all over Lillie and Ollie’s tablets (note he managed to miss his own). Their tablets were no supposed to be on the table mind you but that’s a story for a different day. Now neither of their tablets will work because the milk got into the charging socket. Albie has the Amazon Fire Kids Edition and I love all the features on it so I think this would be the best tablet to get for Lillie now. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make the most of the magnificent deals which they had on Amazon Prime day so I’m off to browse the deals at Digital Trends instead.
Gel-a-Peel Fashion Station Set
You’d have to be blind not to notice Lillie’s love of the Gel-a-Peel sets. I spotted this set whilst browsing the internet and think it would be a winner for sure. It is the perfect intersection of fashion and design. The fashion maker includes an innovative work station to easily gel on fabrics and create gel fabrics! Gel-A-Peel allows you to express yourself through your own designer creations!
Fab Lab Metallic Tattoos
When we were at my sister’s over the weekend, Lillie and her cousin had lots of fun adorning each other with these really pretty tattoos. There are a couple of festivals we are planning on attending this Summer so these would be perfect festival attire for a young girl (and her Mummy to borrow). With 4 sheets full of eye-catching tattoo designs in 3-colour metallic prints (gold, silver & black) that can last up to 7 days!
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls
Admittedly we are a little late to the party on these books but they have been on my radar for Lillie for a while. Lillie has bookshelves brimming with books and I find it interesting to see the books she chooses to read night after night. A girl after my own heart she is still a sucker for a good old Fairy Tale. These are fairy tales reinvented to inspire children with stories of 100 heroic women from Elizabeth I to Serena Williams in book one and Nefertiti to Beyonce in book two.
