Gift Ideas for 8 Year Old Girls

Sunshine's birthday is a month away.  Christmas is only two months away.  Needless to say I've been looking for gift ideas for 8 year old girls.

Every time I ask Sunshine what she wants she becomes extremely overwhelmed.  There are just too many choices for her brain to handle.

While we were out on a Mommy Daughter date this morning I asked her what she wanted for her birthday and Christmas one last time to see if anything had changed.  

This is when she asked if she could put together a wish list like in years past.  This was not my plan, but since I still had no idea what she wanted, I figured I'd follow her lead.

To my pleasant surprise putting together a wish list with Sunshine was easier than ever.  She came up with six themes.  I typed the themes in Amazon. She looked through all of the options and picked six under each theme that she loved most.

It's amazing how this process of creating a wish list helps Sunshine so much.  The visual prompts paired with the auditory experience is the perfect combination for helping her communicate.

Sunshine's now asked for wish lists for Dinomite, Bulldozer, and Princess too, so she can pick out what she wants to get them for Christmas.  You can expect them coming soon!

Sunshine's wish list is so much fun this year! I love that she enjoys so many different things.  If you have an 8 year old girl, I hope this helps you come up with some fantastic ideas as well.

Barbie Gift Ideas for 8 Year Old Girls

Sunshine was introduced to the world of Barbie this year and absolutely loves it.  She loves to change their clothes, shoes, and accessorize.  Her siblings enjoy playing with her too!  Sunshine can't wait to add more dolls and accessories to her collection.

Sunshine is very big into diversifying her Barbie collection.  I LOVE this about her.  Unfortunately we've run into a few snags with this process.

Sunshine feels we need an equal amount of male and female dolls.  She only has one male doll and well... That's just not acceptable to her.  She's picked out the male dolls and accessories below to even out her collection.

Sunshine also has one of the curvy female dolls. Her biggest frustration with this doll is that she only has one outfit for her as the other ones do not fit well or at all.  She has picked out the following curvy doll and clothing sets to help with her dilemma.

Doll House Accessory Gift Ideas for 8 Year Old Girls

Sunshine loves her wooden doll house, but has told me time and time again she's waiting for a master bedroom set and a car so she can play with them even more.  She also said she needs friends to come over and play. I love that she picked out Asian and African American families to join her play!

When we looked on Amazon she saw the exercise set and kitchen accessories.  She begged me to add them to her list.  Lol.
