My daughter is 8 years old and sometimes I battle to give her presents that she will actually use. To be honest, she does not even know what she wants this Christmas. She has lots of ideas but cannot decide what she wants. So I decided to brainstorm some gift ideas for 8 year old girls. In this post I will share with the great ideas I came with.
But first, let me clear, my daughter likes toys. She likes toys very much, but she actually likes to buy them and then leave them alone. I am not sure if it is something that every child does, but my children has a tendency to do so.
I think the best gift I ever gave them, but they have outgrown it long ago was the Thomas Train Wooden Railway sets. My two kids played over and over with that and we still have it at home. I am undecided if I should give it away, sell it or keep it.
So here I came with some great gift ideas for 8 year old girls. I am still undecided which one I will buy for my daughter.
