A lot of her friends gave her little mini lipgloss and nailpolish kits (which she loves) I wouldnt have thought of that and don't know if you are into that though?
Otherwise I have seen some cool stuff like decorate your own treasure box/ moneybox/ picture frame (Target or National geographic). I usually buuy books and if you get a good bargain you can add something else little and pretty (eg bracelet/ sticker etc)
Hope this helps smile

Craft pack- just go to the $2 type stores and get paper,glitter,pom poms,feathers and glue etc.
You can get lots of crafty type packs like make your own diary, or paint your own money box from gift stores and spotlight.
Just a nice top and a pair of tights.

My eldest DD started school this year and has already gone to 4 birthday parties, and I'm sure there will be many more! I know exactly what she likes, but I don't want to give the same presents for every birthday. So hit me with your ideas. What does your 5/6 year old DD/neice/friends like to get? Preferably no more than $15-$20 if possible. Thanks
My DD has been to so many parties and just turned 6 herself... things that are a hit are:
Umbrellas - you can get nice kids ones for under $20 (some $2 shops stock them at around $9 for a tinkerbell one that's very good quality)
Books - some book stores offer 3 for $10
Lipgloss sets, bubble baths, hair bands, clips
Crafty things - like make a tiara set, a mosaic jewell box
Stationery Items - gel pens, highlighters, note pads
Jewellry box with the little ballerina that spins round with music - Kmart
Toys R Us often have specials on - barbies at the moment for $7.99, My Little Pony horse with wings $10, box sets often on special for between $10 and $20. Tinkerbell, mermaids, fairies, barbies... always well received smile
