Now that we’re in July the countdown is on until our big birthday month, with four August birthdays (maybe even five depending on when baby no.6 arrives) I have my work cut out for me! Over the last few months I have been writing down some gift ideas for miss nearly 7 and I think I am slowly getting there. I am yet to decide on a fun new board game, which is always one of the best received presents in our house, but I have already come up with these hip finds:
Rain or shine, our wonderful school is a big fan of nature play and the kids love getting outdoors in the school garden and looking after the school pets (we now have free range chickens, goats and even a lamb!). In this cold and wet season a good raincoat is a must, so I’ll be getting miss 6 the next size up in this cute Nordic Apples Raincoat (RRP $64.95). All our children wear Hatley raincoats and I can not recommend them highly enough! They are snuggly warm, keep kids dry and last really well, the quality is just amazing.
Being the bright and happy girl that she is Juliet loves to add a pop of colour to her day. Whether it’s a colourful scarf, a pretty bow or a gorgeous piece of jewellery, anything that has rainbow colours is a hit. The talented Lauren Hinkley designs the most delightful Charm Bracelets (RRP $29.95) that look good enough to eat, I think this tropical combination would make the perfect birthday bracelet. There are many different looks to choose from and new creations are being added all the time.
Now that she has discovered Mathletics and WordMania Juliet happily does her numeracy and literacy homework, what a welcome change from that grumpy frown. As careful as she promises to be, accidents do happen so I might invest in a sturdy, shock proof iPad cover like this child-friendly style from casehaven.com.au (RRP $29.99). That way I know our iPad is well protected, it’s a perfect fit for small hands and she’ll love the funky pink colour.
If you have a great gift idea for a sweet 7-year old girl I’d love to hear from you, it might just make it onto our birthday shopping list!
