Holiday gifts for girls

For the creative kid: For artsy, creative girls, you can't go wrong with simple arts and crafts supplies, modeling clay or good old-fashioned Play-doh. We love the Play-doh Sweet Shoppe Frosting Fun Bakery (Hasbro, $15) and Design-a-Dress Boutique (Hasbro, $22). Also consider the WowWee ArtSee Studio drawing kit (WowWee, $40). It transforms drawings on your iPad into animated games.

For your little fashionista: Add a little glam and glitz to her stocking with the Style Me Up! Perfect Nail Markers (StyleMeUp.com, $12) or fun hair accessories. When it comes to clothes for little girls, there are certain brands that we can't get enough of. Here are just a handful of our favorites:

For your techie girl: If your daughter can't get enough of computers that doesn't mean you always have to hand off your tablet or smartphone. These days, they make plenty of tablets designed just for kids. Many of them are equipped with Wi-Fi and loaded with tons of fun and educational apps. We love the ClickN KIDS tablet (Walmart, $99), which includes the multi-award winning Looney Tunes ClickN READ Phonics program.

Educational toys and games

Toys and games that make kids think are often some of the best. These holiday gift ideas are suitable for both girls and boys.

Educational toys and gifts
