Best gifts for 4 year old girls!

When was the last time you had to buy a 4 year old a gift? Do you struggle to know what to buy and how much to spend? My youngest daughter turned four recently, so I thought I’d write a blog to let know know what she got and approximately how much people spend these days on gifts to help you in your search for the best gifts for 4 year old girls!!


My 4 year old loves Lottie Dolls. If the 4 year old in your life likes dolls, it’s a good present option.

I have to say, that this year, my daughter LOVED all the presents she was given and has been playing with them lots. Some have come from my shop (regularly, relatives will ask me what they can buy my children from my shop for their birthdays) while quite a few have been purchased elsewhere. I realise that all little girls are different and what one enjoys another will hate, so please don’t take this blog as ‘gospel’ but instead,  I hope it is a launch pad for you and that it will spark an idea in your mind of what you could give the special little girl in your life!

It appears that most of my daughter’s aunts and uncles spent around €20 on her gifts  and her grandparents spent a little more. These gifts included a Lottie Doll and some accessories, Melissa and Doug Decorate your own jewellery boxes (I will write a blog about these later this month, so keep an eye on my site, if you want to see photos of how much she enjoyed doing these!), a Princess nighty (which she refuses to wear to bed and wears out and about instead!), a tutu, a little battery operated dog that barks and walks, some jewellery, money to purchase a new pair of runners for starting Montessori and a height chart wall sticker.


My 4 year old loved this activity and now loves storing her jewellery and ‘precious’ things in this sturdy box.

Friends, who came to her party, spent between €10-€15 euros on her gift. They included a Julia Donaldson book (If you aren’t familiar with Julia Donaldson, she’s well worth a google search on! Her books are AMAZING. The stories are funny and are told in rhyme so that after a couple of reads, your child will be finishing the sentences as you read the story. The illustrations are also really lovely and eye catching for children. Probably her most famous book is the Gruffalo), a Jewellery Box, Jolly Holidays Board Game and a dress-up dress.

This is a great board game which teaches children how to take turns as they use a dice to move their characters through the rooms, collecting the items on their lists and packing them for their ‘holidays’. The lists have pictures, so your child doesn’t have to be able to read. Great memory game to grow your child’s concentration.



Despite my dislike for placing my kids in front of televisions or computers, my husband and I bought her a Innotab child’s tablet. We had purchased a previous model for my eldest daughter when she turned 4 (nearly two year ago) and when it comes out from the press, it is really enjoyed. I love how you can control what your child does on these computers and most of the stuff that it comes with, or that I’ve put onto it, is educational – helping my daughters read, colour (fine motor skills), count, recognise letters and much more.

Best gift for 4 year old girl

If you are looking to spend a bit more on a 4 year old, an Innotab computer is an educational toy that they might like.

Despite all the above being physical gifts, I’m a firm believer that the best gift you can give any child is your time! So, if you have more of this to spend and less money, why not give the little girl a ‘voucher’ for a play date at your house or for a trip to McDonalds or a Coffee Shop for a hot chocolate? Make sure to spoil her with words of encouragement or spend time just chatting and listening. Often this is harder to give, than a toy but the results and memories may last longer than any toy.

As I’ve already said, every 4 year old girl is different – but I hope this little blog helps in some way, as you search to buy a perfect gift for the 4 year old girl in your life!

  1. Nice one.. Made me recollect this quote: "I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." -Albert Einstein
