Gifts an 8 Year Old Girl would Enjoy
What are better way to get an idea for a gift for an 8 year old girl than from a recommendation from another 8 year old girl ? If you are ponderng what to get that special girl, my granddaughter, Rachel has some recommendations for you. Rachel will turn 8 in about 3 months. She is staying with us for a week this summer and I asked her what ideas she thought would be good for an 8 year old girl.
Rachel is a very feminine little girl who loves to wear dresses, play with dolls and use her imagination. She is also an avid reader and enjoys swimming and arts and crafts.
Here are the items that Rachel would put on her wish list.
