Today I give you a whole bunch of ideas for christmas gifts for a five-year-old girl. Every year I have an absolute blast christmas shopping and creating awesome stockings, so I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you as well as some huge hits in years past!
Most of these recommendations, I found in person and loved, so there are links to Michaels, Walmart, MEC, Indigo, and more – but I’ve included Amazon where it is cheaper – those links are through my affiliate account, so if you do purchase them, I receive a small referral that supports the blog. Thank you! And if you have any awesome additons please add in the comments!
Grow Unicorns & Sloths – these are really fun! (available in Beaners Calgary stores)
Water Pipes for the Bath & Your little Engineer! By Boon on Amazon $17
Marble Run kit, also a hit with engineer types!
Kindred Coast Children’s Clothing – Made on Salt Spring Island and amazing quality!
Plasticine is a level up over playdoh – it doesn’t dry and you can reuse it. This brand is the better quality of them all and every European kid has this as a memory!
Mermaids and Kittens, the perfect combo for a little girl who loves both! haha. So cute.
7″ Pusheen Mermaid Cat Plush $17.95 at Chapters, $13.59 on Prime.
Melissa and Doug Water Wow! Pads are amazing (really great for plane travel btw) and at 5 years old, she’s learning her letters and numbers and naturally enjoys it! – This 3 pack makes a great gift. These are often in Winners, YYC Locals!
These are on sale at the bay. Huge hit and way better than loonie store temporary tattoos.
Hair chalk = way better than goopy hair gel or sketchy spray that stains their scalps!
I cannot emphasize how AWESOME and good quality these adidas crops are, it’s all we use for our daughters’ activities. They last 2 seasons at least since they are crops.
Of all of the backpacks, we’ve been so impressed with Pottery Barn Kids’ Backpacks. They fit the larger width requirements of kindergarten these days and we particularly love the travel one with the pull handle – it’s a great investment which you can stuff with goodies, especially if you are going away for christmas (we did last year)
Also from Pottery Barn they have a huge selection of lunch bags, with hand handles or over the shoulder straps – they are so easy to clean, excellent quality and you can get food allergy tags for them (see below)
Our Generation Kayak Adventure Play Set (for Our Generation Dolls)
Alex Toys Tea Party Set $32.96
I’ve found Crayola Water Colours to be the best quality! $3.99
Melissa and Doug Drawing Pad $3.89
Ikea Mala Stamp Pens $5
Go to Michaels and get lots of fun cupcake toppers in the baking section for your little baker and put them in a pretty storage box!
This is a 40 ft slack line, but it has different monkey bar accessories, SO awesome for your little gymnast!! $139 but a great investment especially for camping / backyards!
6,5 foot kids’ climbing rope $32
Comfy Kids Teen Beanbag (Walmart $89)
My daughter had these magnetic tiles at her preschool and it was incredible watching what the kids were able to build. $$ but worth the investment.
Kids. LOVE. Flashlights. Headlamps. Lights. Get them a headlamp for camping season (or evening walks) and watch them fall in love with the outdoors!
It’s a shame they are missing mummy and daddy’s beer / wine cooler. $25
Why not put some climbing wall holds on your kids’ bedroom wall? 🙂 Love this. MEC.

The Puppy’s Wish – beautiful imagery featuring a little girl of the same age! $11
