I’m super excited about this guide because I think has a good fit for a variety of personalities! How do I know this? Because Kaitlyn embodies a variety of personalities herself!
Truly though, she equally loves sparring in Tae Kwon Do, making potions, and wants to be a “spa person” when she grows up. I hope this gift guide of items we own and love, as well as items we’re sending to the North Pole on her wish list for this year, is helpful for you in your holiday shopping!
1 Bed Canopy Light Up: This canopy will transform her bedroom into a magical space. We secured it over a nook with pillows in Kaitlyn’s room to create a cozy and whimsical spot for reading or writing. The attached stars glow well after absorbing the overhead light, too!
2 Adventure Girls Book: I’ve shared this find before because it’s a gold mine for the active, curious, outdoorsy girl. Full of experiments, crafts, outdoor skills, construction, gardening, active play and so much more, this will keep them enthralled for hours!
3 Lego Friends Forest House: There is something about the process and accomplishment that comes along with Lego sets that keeps them always on my gift guides. This sweet Forest House set is fun to build and fun to play with afterwards!
4 Squishy Human Body Lab: A perfect fit for the kid interested in the human body. Kaitlyn rattles off body facts constantly and this squishy body allows for hands-on learning in a delightfully squeamish way your child will love!
5 Sleeping Queens: We are game aficionados around here (see also: the best board games for your family), and every time I bring up our favorites, at least a dozen people tell me we have to try Sleeping Queens. A fun way to get extra addition practice, this game promises to be fun for all!
6 HexBug BattleBot Rivals: Magnetized and snap-together pieces fly off on impact as these bots take on each other in battle! These two mini remote control bots have created hours of fun for my girls as they battle it out in different “arenas” (under the table, on the stairs, etc).
7 Space Rover Inventor Kit: For the space obsessed kid, now she can finally build her own space rover! After assembly, your child can control the rover with a smart phone. It doesn’t get much cooler than building a robot!
8 Clip In Colorful Hair Extensions: These are a fun option for adding a splash of hair color without any chemicals. They clip in and are super long, so you can cut them to your desired length. A fun way for a child to express their personality and also add a splash to spirit days and holiday dress up!
9 My Generation Doll: This more affordable version of the popular American Dolls is a hit thanks to quality for the price and the number of accessories that come with it and are available for additional purchase (great combo gifts). These will encourage hours of creative play!
10 Magic Science for Wizard’s Only Kit: If you have a potion-loving child, this simple but fun science kit is for you! They’ll make potions that change color and even assemble their own magic wand.
11 National Geographic Science Magic Kit: The kids both love this kit. It has a variety of activities included, but the magic gloves that can hold bubbles that you blow out of a magic wand is their favorite. Kits like this make great gifts because they are engaging and consumable.
12 Unicorn Bath Bombs with Hidden Surprise: The only thing better than a whimsical bath bomb is a bath bomb with a hidden surprise! They’ll be no arguing to get in the tub when this kind of fun awaits.
13 Natural Play Make-Up Set: Some play make up is full of all kinds of questionable ingredients, but Klee makes colorful and natural options for kids to enjoy playing dress up with. Did I mention it includes water-based nail polish that is peelable for easy clean up?
14 Friendship Bracelet Maker: A childhood staple activity, this kit makes storage of the string and the holding of the string (no tape necessary) simple, so they are free to create jewelry to wear and share.
15 All Natural Spa Lab: For the spa loving kid, this kit combines science with pampering by helping them create their own bath bombs, body scrubs, lip balms, and more.
