big girl Christmas gift guide

  


s h o p  b e l o w :


Eight is proving to be so fun to shop for. Most of the things on Jules' list are things I wanted as a kid. I still tried to get similar or the same things for both girls because umm, sisters! I just switched up a few things to suit what each girl is really into. Jules loves dolls still but is super into doing arts and crafts and really expressing her creativity which I love! She is just like I was as a kid. 

Nikes- aren't these the cutest? She has grown so much the past few months and is in need of shoes. These are similar to a pair of Nikes that I have that she loves and has been asking for. 

rainbow lights- Jules' big cousin has these lights in her room and Jules has been hooked since their last dance party. I think these attached to the top of her bunk are going to be so fun and make such a cool night light. At least that's what I am telling myself. Im trying so hard to be a cool mom with these.  They come on an adhesive strip so setting up is super easy. Plus you can control them through the app, Alexa and the remote it comes with. You can also sync the lights to music (so fun), there's a timer where you can set them to turn off at a specified bedtime and you can set a timer to turn them on as "wake up" call.

Jacket- I have been wanting to make my kids one of these for a while just haven't gotten around to it. I am getting the girls these jean jackets in a size or two up so they can get good wear out of them. These Jackets are my favorite. They are super comfy and not too stiff/thick. There are quite a few places to get patches for them and I am still unsure where I am getting theirs. I really love these Stoney Clover Lane ones but they're a bit pricy when add up 10 of them. I really love their color variety and the quality of their patches. Their sparkling cider color is my favorite.  I also found these on Etsy but they don't have all the letters I need. I can always go with good old Amazon for these classic ones that I have used in the past many times and they hold up very well. 

Princess LEGOS- These are so adorable and one of Jules favorite lego sets. I love how they are similar to a Polly Pocket and you can keep all the pieces in one place. She is also very into the LEGO friends collection. She put the rv and the hospital on her list. 

Electronic piggy bank- Jules is my little saver and has officially filled her very first, very big, biggie bank. She's been saving her money in a little baggie and is in need of something bigger. This unicorn one is also really adorable! 

Ballerina doll- I love a good heirloom doll. The quality and details on these are even better in person. I got them a few weeks ago when they were on sale and they are so pretty and such a good size. Jules is getting the red head and I got Kourt the brunette one. 

Video camera- Both my girls (5&8) love recording fake videos tutorials. I had a few other moms recommend this and said it's super user friendly and something that kids in this age group can easily navigate. I really love that their fake videos can turn into real videos that I can easily save on my laptop. I think both girls will have lots of fun using this. I got her an extra memory card and this cute pink case

neck pillow- I will probably regret this one but Jules has been begging for one of these for the longest time. She really loves pillows and has a whole bunch of different ones from, cookies to unicorns. 

Blind bags- By far my kids favorite kinda gifts. Jules bought a mix of these for Kourt's birthday and the look on her face when she opened a box full of blind bags was the best thing ever. Really excited to do this again for both girls this time. The 5 surprise ones are actually super cool. They are mini versions of real foods and treats, like tiny spam boxes and soy sauce. Jules uses these in the dollhouse as the mice food. The color reveal Barbies are probably their most favorite. They collected all the little mermaids and want some Chelsea dolls this time. LOL' s are still a big hit around here and so are the cute  little Doorables.

Snackeez- Have you heard of these? My kids saw these advertised on a commercial once and tell me how cool they are because they can have snacks and a drink at the same time. It's a cup that has a little compartment on the top that you can fill with snacks. I was surprised at how hard these were to get a hold of in the colors I wanted. I was able to find the pink and the blue here. 

Arts and crafts box- There are a few of these around but I loved this one because of the amount of tings you get in it. Theres little wooden pieces they can use to paint, all the pipe cleaners in every color and so much more. Perfect addition to her art cart. You can see the art cart here.

Ugg slippers- Jules and Kourt both asked for slippers like mine because they are always walking around trying to steal mine. I have these exact ones in a leopard version. I got both girls a size up so they can last them a little longer.

Just Dance- Jules got the Nintendo switch for her birthday last year. We all love it. We have some serious Mario Kart races around here. The kids have played this with their cousins and really had a good time. This version comes with some frozen 2 songs. 

Doll Jeep- My girls favorite things to play together is house, Barbies and American girl dolls. I love that Jules is really into this kind of stuff still. They have both asked for this for the past three Christmas but we had no room for this. We recently donated so many toys and I promised them a new car for their dolls. 

Paris house coloring book This Paris house is a coloring/sticker book. Each page is Paris themed and looks like the inside of a house, or library, and it comes with stickers that you can use to decorate the space. 

rhinestone headphones- these are so fun. Love that they're wireless and have bluetooth. Jules' cousins have these air pod dupes that are so cool but Jules doesn't like things in her ears. She is so sensitive to that Kida stuff and quickly said no when I asked her if she'd like something like that. When I showed her these she was all in! Perfect for virtual school.

Bean bag- So fun! I think I am just as excited about these as my girls. Both girls asked for one. I  Snagged these super fluffy ones. I grabbed then the second I saw them go on sale. 

Matching doll and me pajamas - I shared these in my stories a few days ago. The star pjs are so soft and cute. they come in toddler and big girl sizes so I grabbed them for both girls. then I found these doll pjs , or their American Girl dolls, that come in a set with a few different fun accessories. 

Here are a few things that Jules already owns and loves plus a few other options to the things I listed above.
