Founder and Editor of RESCU.com.au
Okay so perhaps this is a somewhat-specific Editor Loves, but I’m sharing what I’m actually giving my little girl this Christmas and ideas to surprise and delight 3-5 year old girls around the country!
For the Tiny Dancer…
Tutu Du Monde – Part Fantasy dress ups part Ballerina, this is THE brand to light up your little Tinkerbell. Each year, I invest in a new dress that honestly and truly keeps my little one happy all year. In Elsa Ice Blue, this sheer and delightful number is just one of the many beautiful designs available online.
The Driftaway Tutu is the perfect combination of tulle and sequins to keep her dancing around the house all day long.
RRP: $159 at www.tutudumonde.com
For the Sweetest of Songbirds…
Little Sings – Forget a portrait session, the ultimate gift for the Grandparents is a CD of their little angel’s voice. And have we found the best way to capture their sweet innocence forever. We popped into Little Sings Studios in Glebe to record our very own professionally created CD.
Complete with gorgeous gift box, the end product features a song, ring tone, illustrated CD and angelic version of Frozen’s Let It Go. Like a time capsule, this is one to pull out and play at their 21st Birthday.
RRP: $949 for a full recording session including gift boxed CD and digital recording. For more information and to book your session, go to www.littlesings.com.au
For the Little One with the Big Imagination…
The Fairy Door: Christmas Edition – This gift is technically more for the parents than the child. Consider this the ultimate negotiation tool for wily toddler behaviour. Once installed in the house, The Fairy Door is a gateway to imaginative play for the kids and a reminder that the ‘fairies are always watching’.
The Christmas Edition comes complete with a festive wreath that has made the Naughty or Nice conversation alive and well in our home. If you feel like going the extra mile to make it even more magical, add a pair of santa boots as a finishing touch. These pint-sized boots leave a reminder that Santa has visited, and can be placed with a set of tiny footprints back to the door.
RRP: Christmas Door – $40, lil’ Santa Boots – $12 both from www.littlefairydoor.com
