My daughter’s tenth birthday is next week. I’ve already made her a few things like the knitted voodoo doll. The head, body and limbs are complete. I’ll put it together once she’s asleep.
Earlier this morning, I purchased a few items for her…
Such as this adorable Monster High Collapsible Trunk. Judging by the reviews… it’s large and will fit nicely at the foot of my daughters bed. I do think I’ll make it more sturdy by sewing a liner inside the trunk and then attaching it to the fabric that’s already there. I know that my daughter will love it since it features her much loved Monster High dolls. I like it since it neatly keeps her items in one place. The Monster High trunk will arrive on her birthday.
My daughter loves the Monster High dolls! Over the past few years I’ve purchased several for her. She doesn’t have any of the boy Monster High dolls. People snap them up quickly in the store and resell them for well over $150! There’s no way I’m paying that much for a doll that normally retails for between $12 and $21 in the store. However this the Monster High doll, Deuce Gorgon for $30. I haven’t seen him that low in months! He’s been snapped up and resold for over $150 so I quickly bought the doll since he was only $10 more than I’d pay if I could find him in the store.
Initially, I was going to purchase this item at Christmas time, but I held off since I felt she had enough for Christmas. I did add it to my Amazon Wish List knowing that one day I’d eventually purchase it for her. Well guess what? I checked this morning and the price had dropped by $10 since Christmas!
My daughter loves to draw. She’s an extremely talented artist. She likes computers and has been wanting to digitize some of her sketches and so I decided to purchase the Wacom Splash Tablet. It looks like it’ll be the the perfect beginner tablet for her. I’m an Amazon Prime member and decided to go with next day delivery for the Monster High doll and the Wacom tablet. They’ll be here tomorrow so I don’t have to worry about them arriving by her birthday.
My daughter doesn’t expect a lot for her birthday. She knows that what you receive isn’t really that important and she seems to be truly happy with whatever she gets which is nice. The main way I show her how much she means to me is spending lots of time with her. But to make her birth date “extra special” I try to do additional things for her. I can’t wait to see the look on her face when she receives her gifts. She’s such a wonderful daughter smart, loving, and enjoys sharing with others. It’s nice when I can do extra special things for her throughout the year.
