Birthday gift for a 5 year old girl?

My son was just invited to a classmate's birthday party. I have three boys. I have NO clue what to get for a 5 year old girl who I know by sight and Connor barely remembers her name! (he has a problem remembering names to begin with, though lol)

So..for a 5 year old girl acquaintance..what would be a good idea?

  • Hair clips, dolls, costume jewelry. I am trying to remember what all my friends girl got at her party when she was 5. She got barbie clothes, but that is kind of a gamble if you aren't certain she likes barbies. Perhaps call the mother and see what she recommends or what she thinks is appropriate.

  • I would suggest a board game or card game of some sort. Because you dont know her that well, your not sure if shes a girly girl who likes make-up dollsa and barbies, or a tome boy who likes soccer balls and trucks ya know?
    A board game or card game would go either way ! :D

  • Have you already rsvp'd. I usually ask what the child wants when I call to do that. You never know what they are into, or what they already have. I always hgave trouble at girls parties too.
