Dubai's Desperate Housewife

Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

Birthday presents for an eight-year-old girl

with one comment

I thought I’d write a post about this given the number of mums who texted me before DD’s birthday to ask what she might like. Obviously, all girls are different but here are the gifts that went down well with DD:

Moshi Monsters are dead. And these disgusting little Trashpacks are what tok over. Steer clear if you can.

Moshi Monsters are dead. And these disgusting little Trashpacks are what took over in the classroom craze. Steer clear if you can.

–          Perfumes and body sprays.

–          “Real” makeup (blusher, pale eye shadow).

–          Anything to do with Trashpacks (don’t ask if you don’t know – you’ll wish you didn’t know).

–          Costume jewellery of the adult variety (not kiddie jewellery).

–          Grown-up gifts like photo frames (thank you A) and CDs and – from me as her main gift – a radio/CD player for her room.

–          Cash and/or cash cards to spend in the malls.

And, if you’re interested in hearing what an eight-year-old girl says she wants, it would be: Her own laptop, her own iPad, an iPhone 5, loadsamoney and a car with her own driver so she can go wherever she wants.  Oh, and Justin Bieber to perform a private concert. On time.

Dream on, babe – especially on the last one!
