  • Books, Leapfrog/Leapster educational toys. Savings bonds. "Coupons" for special activities that she likes to do. Classes for swimming, gymnastics, dance or ice skating.

  • Classes are a great suggestion. This year I put tickets to performances (plays, sporting events and museums to ours, but for your little one, you could do puppet shows, etc.) on my boys' Christmas lists. You can put money to a trip to see grandparents or splurge on something for her room. My boys recently got a wallpaper (removable) mural for their room that they love.

  • I was thinking you could do like "one time use" crafts. Like a gingerbread house or those kits where you can make imprints of their hands. In her stocking you could put in fruit like oranged and apples and her favorite candy. I'm sure there might be some thing she needs like new socks or underwear or pretty new hair ribbons. Kids that age just like opening the gifts for the most part.

  • I'd suggest cleaning out the toys she really doesn't play with anymore. We do this every birthday and Christmas, to make room for the new stuff. I also suggest craft items, books, or puzzles as gifts too. My 4 yo loves that stuff.

  • books are always awesome, as are some educational games or videos. You can also do a special keepsake item like a jewelry box or something.

  • you can always clean out her room/closet and donate it all, too..the things she doesn't use/play with anymore. otherwise, they are just taking up space.
    you could set up a college savings fund or savings account, also. at her age, she won't know the difference in a few gifts vs a bunch.
