Tuesday’s Tip – Great Girl Gifts

I know I already did a Tween girl birthday gift, but like I said the first time, it was my favorite gift giving time.  It just seemed so easy.  The boys were not so easy, but the girls…..super easy.

This was one of my all time favorite gift ideas.  I would watch clearance at Target all year long and I would pick up a cute, but small photo album.  There are so many girlfriend ones, you can choose the perfect one.

Then I would buy a disposable camera.  I know this sounds old school, and it is, but it’s not often that they take pictures and then take them in to get the developed anymore.  It’s almost a lost art.  Before I know it this post won’t even be usable anymore because they won’t even carry those cameras anymore.  How sad.

Anyways, I take the 2 and package them together and let the birthday girl take pictures with her camera of whatever she wants then make it into a scrapbook.

Another great idea is do this in reverse. Have your child take pictures of whatever and whoever they want.  Then have them make the scrapbook and give it to the friend.  This was a gift that my daughter received and she truly treasures it.  Another great thing about this idea is it can be used for older kids, even high school.

  1. That sounds like a great idea, especially have them take the pictures of whatever they want, never know what they come up with. Drop by when you can. 🙂

  2. Thanks for the great idea!
