Christmas Wishlist - Griffin Edition

Last week I shared Luke's Christmas Wishlist and today I'm going to be sharing Griffin's!  This list is going to be a combination of things that she has and loves as well as things that we have our eye on for her for Christmas.  






1 - Griffin LOVES baby dolls and LOVES animals - so when I saw  these Cabbage Patch babies I knew she'd love them.  I ordered her a pair of them and I'm crossing my fingers that they smell just like my Cabbage Patch dolls did when I was a kid :) (Griffin has a high chair,  cradle and stroller for her babies as well - she's played with them for several years and are pieces we'll probably keep after she's done with them).

2 - I adore  this little play castle set because we are on the go A LOT and I love the idea of her having a whole set of toys to play with at football practice, during a basketball game, etc.  It doesn't hurt that she's currently into all things princess.

3 - Griffin loves to paint and watercolor is my preferred medium for her (because EASY!) and I think she'll love the expanded palette that  this set offers.  She's gotten much better about rinsing her brushes in between color changes and I foresee several hours of creativity with this under the tree.

4 - We've been looking at  headphones for the kids for use with the iPad and Griffin would flip over the unicorns on these :)

5 - It's no secret that Griffin likes to perform and  this microphone set is high up on my list for her because it streams music and has lights ;)  I mean - I may even have to take it for a spin!

6 -  Hi Ho Cherry-O is one of our favorites because it's fun and age-appropriate and I love that we get to practice our math skills while we play.

7 & 8 - Both the boys have 2-wheel Razor scooters and Griffin wants nothing more than to get out there and scooter with them . We have a Cars scooter that was Luke's when he was little but I have a feeling that when Santa delivers  this pink number (and  matching helmet!) we won't be able to keep her inside :)

9 - I always say "no more stuffed animals" and then somehow we end up with another  Jellycat ;)  I fell in love with the brand when I used to work on the square and they are hands-down the softest, most durable and cutest stuffed animals around.  They're my go-to for baby shower gifts, birthday presents and everything in between. 

10 - My kids got a  set of these last year for Christmas and Griffin plays with them more than anyone else.  They stay together really well and are easy to build with.  The minimal frustration and bright colors are ideal.

11 - We love a tea set and  this one is on her list because of how durable and functional it is.  I think it would go from the bath tub, to the playroom to the pool easily and Green Toys are one of our favorite brands.

12 - Griffin got  this horse stable set for her birthday last year and despite playing with it all the time we STILL have all the horses.  It's well made and is great for traveling.

13 - I brag on  this flower set all the time but y'all - it's under $20 and has been a favorite toy for YEARS!  Kids can stack, sort and design and my boys have played with this just as much as Griffin.

14 -  This faux makeup set is on my radar for Griffin because she LOVES watching me get ready in the morning and always wants to play in my makeup.  It has great reviews and I think she'd play with it a lot.

I hope that Griffin's list gave you some inspiration and ideas if you're shopping for a four-year-old girl (or boy! Lots of these picks would be great for boys as well!).  If you have a great gift recommendation for a Pre-K'er I'd love to hear it!

Happy Monday, friends!!!

    1. We do! Typically Santa will bring each of the kids one "larger" gift (i.e. a large Lego set, last year Griffin got Wellie Wishers dolls, etc. ) and that gift is unwrapped and left by the tree. Santa also fills their stockings and then Dave and I give them each three wrapped gifts.

  6. I'm a mama of 3 girls (and one boy) and these are some great picks! We have the Green Toys tea set and love it! My girls (and their brother ����) also love the Little Cosmetics sets. I've had a few applicators fall apart but we've had them almost two years and they've held up really well! Also, I live in north Georgia and we just visited Baby Land Hospital (where Cabbage Patch dolls come from) and my 6-month old got one of those little dolls. I can tell you that they do smell like the big dolls! I always love your posts like this! I'm anxious to start Christmas shopping for my crew!

  8. I love these ideas! I got my almost 4 year old that makeup set for Christmas last year and it was her favorite gift!! She uses it all the time and completely thinks it’s real! Luckily she always makes the same face when she comes and shows me her “beautiful makeup” so I know to compliment it! ��

  15. you always give the best ideas! My 4 year old Anastasia loves the horse stable and the flower set based on your recommendation. Thanks for more ideas -

    P.S. I got the dainty unicorn by jellycat last summer and it is super pretty and soft. The ostrich with the fancy feathers is on my radar for christmas.

  16. Thank you for all of your gift ideas! I have a 4 year old daughter and would completely agree with 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12 and 13. We have and LOVE all of those things. I'm adding those building discs to her Christmas wish list. I'm also hoping to pick her up a cute character watch and found a really sweet vet kit with a puppy.

  22. I literally just bought one of those cabbage patch babies for my 28 year old self...no shame in my game. it smells JUST LIKE when I was a kid.

  23. My daughter is also 4 and she has that scooter. She prefers her brother's scooter(even though it's not pink!) because it glides more smoothly and requires less effort. You might be able to find one in pink. It's the Y- Glider brand and has two wheels in the front, one in back.
