Gift Ideas for Girls - Give the Gift of Creativity this Christmas!
Posted on December 10 2019
I had a moment of parenting pride this week as the family decorated our Christmas Tree. When we realised that we did not have a star for the top of the tree, instead of wanting to run to the shop, my 10 year old daughter jumped up and said ‘I’ll make one!’. She grabbed her 3D Art pen and made a wonderful unique star that will adorn the tree for years to come. And so the creative Christmas preparation began, culminating in a truly unique and special Christmas Wreath made from recycled sandwich bags and old Christmas decorations.
It is so easy this time of the year, when the list is long and time is short, to fall into the ‘express consumption’ trap. But it’s always worth looking up from the amazon cart for a moment and taking the time to create together!
With 2 creative daughters, this Christmas I have spent many hours searching for unique gifts to inspire their creativity. I have listed below my favourite creative Christmas gifts for girls – Happy Creating!
