  • Kids love money so perhaps cash and a card. Maybe a gift card to the movies or another type of gift card.

  • An "outside" toy... like a new bike helmet or jump rope, roller blades (Walmart) or a scooter

  • One thing I've noticed that most kids enjoy getting (because they often rarely get it) is their own money to get what they would like. Sure, they do enjoy the gifts we get them, but they also enjoy the freedom of being able to shop too.

    Maybe a gift certificate to her favorite store?

  • MY SUGGESTION WOULD BE A COLLECTION OF HER KIND OF BOOKS OR POSSIBLY A GAME FOR A GAME SYSTEM SHE HAS.

  • Hoenstly, I say take her out for lunch and tell her she has $30 dollars to spend. Take her were she wants (within reason of course) and let her spend it her way, but you also get to spend the day with her. This will help the two of you bond while she gets to have 30 bucks for shopping. Trust me she'll love it!!!
