Best Holiday Gift Ideas for Girls

This is a year full of holiday blockbusters and iterations of toys we are familiar with from years past. Big hitting categories are the usual suspects such as dolls, Legos and dress up costumes and video games which are all getting updates with the latest in blockbusters from Frozen 2, and Toy Story 4.  Read on to see what the Made Modern girl is asking for this Christmas and what would fit with the gifts you need to buy your little loved ones.


Dolls figures are a consistent hit with girls and this year is no exception.  Familiar figures such as LOLs, and PJ Masks top the charts with additions of high quality Adora figures which have great quality and details.

Dress Up:

Every girl at any age likes to dress up, and there are always great gifts to help transform play into reality.

These dolls and dress ups may change going into the end of year with the release of Disney+ and the additional dedicated content and shows that will be included.

Video Games:

Each year we try to have one special gift that is the 'big gift'.  This year that is going to be their first video game.  For many reasons including the portability, multiplayer nature and family friendly games we have settled on the Nintendo Switch.



A timeless favorite of kids is Legos.  You can never have enough Legos.  They are great for teaching many things from attention to detail when following directions, creativity when playing or building new custom creations and spatial thinking or the ability to translate ideas or drawings into 3 dimensional creations. Favorites in the Lego world for girls are from movies such as Frozen, Toy Story 4 and Harry Potter.

Learning Toys and Books:

Each year we also like to buy a few learning toys, games or books.  These provide great family fun activities where kids don't even know they are learning.


Art and craft supplies are always a great idea. They help provide hours of activity and enjoyment that also strengthens the creativity muscle. Playing with new media and materials in art also helps develop kids brains develop by making new connections.


Kids grow so fast that it is hard to keep up with clothes that fit them throughout the school year. Christmas time is a great time to give the children a gift to open while also being practical and updating their wardrobes with proper fitting clothes at the same time.

Outside Toys and Games

Sports equipment and outside toys are always a big hit. Anything we can do to motivate our kids to get out of the house, off electronics and interacting with each other is always win. These toys and games provide the perfect fun.
