HELP! Present for a 3 year old needed!

Discussion in 'Personal' started by sparkly_duck, Jun 1, 2011.

  1. My friend's daughter is 3 and I need to buy her a birthday present, by Sunday.
    She is into dressing up, jigsaws, princesses and picnics at the moment. I have made a conscious decision to not give her 'girly' presents (on the grounds that everybody else will and a girl can have too much pink, which is a stance that my friend supports me with), and I want to try and stick to that.
    I have about £15 to spend.
    Any ideas, oh lovely people of TES?
  2. Argos 2 for £15 range. a set of six pairs dressing up shoes and whatever else you fancy.
    I buy these for my grandson to give as B.Day presents to his little friends at nursery.
    Thorntons have little gft boxes cars and butterflies £2.50. I give one Argos gift with a choc gift keeps costs down and littlies love them.

    IKEA have brilliant play tents for £7.00ish and also really nice pretend fruit and veg made from felt at £6.00 something for fruit and same again for veg. The person who designed the leek had a cheeky sense of humour.
  4. Why not invest in a lovely book appropriate for a 3 yo + a puppet. Your little friend will no doubt be showered with all the dress up stuff from here there and everywhere.BUT a good book will be there at the end of the latest fad.

  5. How about a flower press? You can get them at ELC or amazon etc. Girly without being over the top pink-and now it's coming to summer..hours of fun!
  6. ELC is always the answer ... got a fab "outdoor explorer kit" for my nephew for Easter ... about £15 and it had a bug collector and binoculars and some other cool stuff

    They have plenty of kits like this

    They also do fantastic jigsaws
  7. And this is why I ask TES! Thanks for the suggestions Tessers.
    I shall investigate ELC and the Ikea tent thing... I do need to go to Ikea anyway, so that might be the way forward.
    Thanks again!

    I'd got for outdoors toys at this time of year- a giant bubble hoop or some velcro bats and balls...
  9. *UPDATE!*
    I have just got back from the birthday party and ended up buying her the Explorer kit from ELC. Turned out she already has a tent!
    She loved the explorer kit... we had to go and explore the house for her toys!
    Thank you for all of your fantastic ideas and suggestions; I think they'll keep me going for years.
