Oh boy!  I had to share this gift guide for 3 year old girls because we have a birthday girl in our house!   I love no-gift birthdays, but today I am sharing a gift roundup.

Today is here…  Our little girl has turned three.   She has been such a sweet little girl and her big brothers have been so happy to have a little sister, to play with her and to just love being with her… and so have we.

We have gone from this:  (It’s a girl!) 
Another baby

To this…  (It’s almost time!) 
having the baby

To this…  (Isn’t she beautiful!)

To this…  (One year old already!)

Where does the time go?  Our sweet little Allie B is THREE!    Three years old!  Seriously?    She is so sweet (and still the baby of the family… and she knows it!  Well – some days she is “a big girl” but if she wants held or needs something, she lets us know “I a baby.”

So…  because this little girl has three big brothers, and she is the first little girl in our family, we are pretty new to buying little girl gifts:

That’s where Allie came in!  She helped me pick out her FIVE favorite birthday gifts and I’ve made a list for you.  Here is Allie’s list of the best gifts for three year old girls

1).  Melissa & Doug Abby & Emma Deluxe Magnetic Dress-Up Set: 
2. The Frozen Sisters:  Anna & Elsa Royal Sisters Doll

3. Play Doh castle set  – our kids love PlayDoh.  It is a daily thing at our house, so I was’t surprised by this one.   It is adorable, ins’t it?   I had never seen it before!

4. Magnetic Calendar:  My first calendar
I love doing a daily calendar.   We work on the calendar right after breakfast in the morning.  It is a fun way to kind of structure the morning & start the day out nicely.
71WwMDpMt0L._SL1110_5. Pretend & Play School (her big brothers to school and she likes to be the teacher when they play.   This is a hit when friends come over.   I think that every child loves to play school at one point or another.  (I can remember lining up my dolls and playing school – which is funny, because I grew up to become a teacher!)

Oh… and the absolute, very best gift that you can give her….  TIME!!!!

Really- if nothing else, take her out for ice cream or to her first movie at the movie theater.  Take her out to a park and play with her.   Take her shopping or paint her nails in your bathroom while you sing silly songs.  Tell her stories about why you love her.   You can spend your money like crazy, but if you don’t spend your TIME like crazy, too… it just isn’t worth it.

Happy Birthday to our sweet Allie Elizabeth!   (Ps- we “named” her before we were even married… I had loved the book, The Notebook, so much that I always knew Allie would be our daughter’s name one day)
