Gift Guide for a 5-Year-Old Girl


Today I’m sharing a round-up of great gift ideas for a 5-year-old girl! My daughter Sophie is 5 years old, and all of the ideas I’m sharing are things we ACTUALLY own and love! I hope this post (and video) helps you with gift ideas for the little girl you’re shopping for.

*This post coincides with a video on my YouTube channel. I wanted to have all of the links in one place for you!

These gift ideas are listed as ideas for a 5-year-old girl, but I think they’d be great for age 4 up through even age 7! I typically try to only list gift ideas that we already own and love (tried-and-true recommendations are the best kind!). There are one or two ideas in this list that we don’t own yet, but that we are planning to give our daughter this year!
