Although Amelia's birthday isn't for another couple of months with money being tight at the moment I am looking to start buying her presents now. I've found it really hard this year to choose what to buy her. She's at that age now where she has pretty much everything as she's had a lot of birthdays and christmas's! She's already got a bike, a tablet, a scooter, a watch, dolls house and many other common gift ideas you could think of so this year it took me a while longer to decide on what to get her.
Some of these presents are things she asked for and some are things I know she'd really love to recieve!
As Amelia is always wanting to use my make up and loves the film Trolls I thought this little make up set would be perfect for her. She has had little make up sets in the past but as she's older now I know they wont get ruined and she'll actually play with them rather than smear them all over the wall!
I wanted to get these for Amelia for Christmas but I thought I'd wait until she was a bit older and so she could use them when it was warmer outside and not grow out of them so quick. I cant quite decide on which design to go for but I quite like these ones. She saw a little girl on them one day when we were out and said she wanted a pair so I know she'll love them.
I'm sure like most kids Amelia is always asking me for stuff she sees on the TV. You know those annoying adverts which we try to avoid allowing our kids to watch otherwise their Christmas lists are miles long! Well Amelia was given some Genie girls figures for Christmas and really likes playing with them. I saw this wish granter which I though she may like. There's over 100 to collect so I'm sure she'll be getting more for Christmas and her next birthday too! You can see the Glo lantern in action below...
Amelia loves Shopkins but right now they are scattered all across the house. This collectors case would be perfect for her to keep them in and then get out when she wants to play with them.
We haven't watched the film yet but Amelia has seen lots of clips on Youtube and loves the soundtrack. She said she'd like the doll for her birthday so I found this Adventure one.
Amelia loves playing with my make up and hair stuff at my dressing table so I thought it would be a nice idea to buy her a dressing table of her own which can grow with her over the years.
I hate lego with a passion especially the little ones, but Amelia got some for Christmas and really likes playing with it. So I'd like to buy her some more, although I'll have to keep it out of the way of Harry otherwise it will end up broken or eaten!
As we're off to Disney at the end of the year I wanted to buy her a couple of costumes to taker along which she could wear a couple of days at the parks. She's recently watched Toy Story for the first time and loves Jessie so I thought I'd buy this one first to add to her dressing up box.
What did you buy your 5 year old for their birthday?
