I really liked doing the “Want, Need, Wear, Read,” approach to Christmas gifts last year, so we’re kinda doing it again this year. Christmas is always hard since other family members always give gifts, of course, but I figure if we can minimize the excessive gifts even a little bit, it’s beneficial.
Anyway, these are the essentials that we came up with for our almost-three-year-old daughter. And can I just say that I’m happy she still doesn’t get the present portion of Christmas yet? We asked her what she wanted from Santa and she said, “yellow.” Then, when I pressed further, she said she wanted a “big ball.” If only it will always be there easy.
Want, Need, Wear, Read for a 3-Year-Old Girl:
I haven’t talked about our trip to Disney World yet (several posts are coming after the holidays), but here’s a spoiler alert: we met A LOT of princesses. We actually skipped all the rides and just made it a point to meet all of the royals instead. Julia was in heaven. This Disney Princess Royal Doll Collection will be SO much fun for her to play with. And thanks to a friend, my mom actually got this at a ridiculously low price at Target through a a series of multiple discounts. Hooray for cheap!
Side note: Does anyone else want to be best friends with Rapunzel?
Julia could use a new set of toddler bedding. I love that toddler beds use crib sheets (because we have plenty of those), but the actual flat sheets are hard to come by. She’d flip for either this Paw Patrol or this Lady Bug bedding.
This girl already has so many clothes. If I had to pick something for her to wear, it’d have to be footed jammies. She loves matching her sister, and you don’t get much cutter than two little girls in matching pajamas!
Julia loves reading. She LOVES it! I remember reading Highlights Magazine when I was younger, but it turns out they have one for kids 2 through 6 years old called High Five Magazine. This could be a lot of fun for her to get once a month.
If you have a girl in this age range I’d love to hear what you’d put on your list!
Coming up with even just four things was harder than I thought it’d be!
