Lil Sprout attended her friend’s seventh birthday party on Saturday. A few days prior, I asked the birthday girl what she wanted for her birthday:
- a vanity table
- nail polish
This child is obviously turning sixteen not seven! So what to buy? I didn’t want to get children’s nail polish that wore off in minutes but still stains the carpet. I was obviously not purchasing a piece of furniture for her. And I just felt weird about purchasing makeup for a seven year old.
My Lil Sprout loves my tabletop magnifying mirror which we purchased at Marshall’s. (Note: this is not a sponsored post, just me telling you about my shopping adventures!). I was happy to find a similar one but in hot pink!
I explored some more to find other age appropriate products. I found a matching hot pink hairbrush and an adorable floral kitten-ear headband. Purr-fect.
The floral bag, found at cash of course, was the right colour and feel to tie it all together.
The final items – lip balm, fabric hairband, and nail files – were purchased at Dollarama.
I love that I didn’t buy any toys and avoided child marketed beauty products. Adult or child, I think this is a cheerful, fun, and useful present.
What would you have bought this six year old beauty obsessed birthday girl? Tell us in the comments, on Twitter – @sproutbalance – or Facebook!
