Gift Ideas for a 5-Year-Old Girl

Updated April 17, 2017

If little girls are made of "sugar and spice and everything nice," then choosing the perfect gift for that special 5-year-old in your life is fairly easy. From dolls to kids' yoga videos, a wide variety of gifts can put a smile on the face of the precious little girl who owns your heart.


Your 5-year-old will love having a baby she can care for, push in a baby stroller and snuggle with at night. You'll find baby dolls that you can feed and change, dolls that wet their trousers, even dolls that need to be potty trained. Another option are the Cabbage Patch Dolls. Your 5-year-old will love choosing a name for her doll and sending out the adoption papers, making the baby her own.

Dress-Up Clothes

One thing 5-year-olds love to do is to play dress-up. When searching for a gift for that special little girl in your life, look no further than plastic high heels and tiaras. These can be found in the toy section of any department store, as can pink gowns and boas. To top off her costume, buy play make-up that includes blush, lipstick and nail polish; these will make her feel like the beauty queen she is.

Kids' Yoga DVDs

Yoga provides children with a means of developing concentration and creativity through fun poses such as the alligator and zebra. Many of these DVDs are designed for children and parents to do together, enhancing family time. Yoga for Kids DVDs teach kids as young as 5 how to relax, something 5-year-olds are not used to doing. These DVDs are great when the weather isn't agreeable and the kids are stuck inside.


Five is the age when little girls begin developing a fashion sense, and jewellery begins to catch her eye. If she has her ears pierced, buy her a pair of heart or animal-shaped earrings. Bracelets are usually a big hit, as are rings made for her little fingers. No matter what type of jewellery you buy, she will feel grown up, like the older females in her life.
