Top 10 eBay Gift Ideas for Girls 2012

Have you started shopping yet?  I’m one of those weridos who shop year round for find the best gifts and best deals on those gifts.  I know that most people aren’t like me {thank goodness!} but it’s easier for me to get a head start on Christmas shopping so I can be more relaxed during the holiday season.



My baby girl is the only one that I’ve waited until the last minute to buy for.  I was waiting to see what the “hot” items were going to be this shopping season.  A few weeks ago I formed my list and sat down at my computer to shop.  I’ve found that many, if not all, of the items were cheaper on ebay than anywhere else.  I bought a few myself and I’ve shared this list with family members who are looking for gifts to buy.


This year, as they do every year, eBay has those highly sought gifts for everyone on your Christmas list.  You can even shop Toys ‘R Us directly from eBay and get access to the same great selection and service you would get at Toys ‘R Us.  I LOVE THAT!  I’ve also bought hard-to-find unique gifts and cheap tech gifts there this year too!  With eBay you get simple, one-stop shopping!


Here are my little girl’s top ten wish list items this year (All are available on eBay and/or the eBay Toys”R”Us store.  You can click on the link to go to each item directly.):

KidKraft Kitchen

–  KidKraft Vintage Kitchen – $176.99 This was on my daughter’s wish list…okay, my wish list for her.  We’ve already ordered it and it arrived within days.  It’s gorgeous!!  It did take a while to put together but it is very well made and I’m sure it will last a long time.
–  Cra-Z-Art Magna Doodle 3-in-1 Easel – $49.99 + Free Shipping!  I’ve always loved the Original MagnaDoodle and now my little girl can play with this awesome 3-in-1 easel.  Not only does it have the MagnaDoodle drawing surface but also a magnetic dry erase board, and a paint ‘n Draw board.  This easel comes with a double sided magnetic pen, 1 dry erase marker, 6 magnetic stampers, a clip for paper and a storage tray. Plus, the easel folds flat for easy storage!
–  AquaDoodle Delux Mat – $29.99 A little boy I use to babysit had one of these and I loved playing with it as much as he did.  My grandmother has already bought this for my little girl and all the adults in the family have taken their turn drawing on it.
Barbie ATV–  Power Wheels Fisher Price Barbie ATV – $49.99 on sale from $99.99!  My aunt bought this for my little girl {from ebay} and I can’t wait to see her ride it!!!
–  Crayola Pip Squeak Wacky Tip Markers – $4.99  This should make a fun stocking stuffer and perfect for her little hands.
–  Angry Birds Air Swimmers – $29.99 This gift is kind of a gift for both my husband and my little girl.  How fun!  I can already see them playing together.
Little Tikes Cozy Coupe–  Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Magenta – $49.99 + Free Shipping! The adorable classic coupe in a fun girlie shade.  We won’t be able to really enjoy this until the weather gets cooler but it will still be a little fun in the house before we put it away in storage until Spring.
–  Crayola Large Washable Crayons – $2.99  Large crayons that are great for little hands.  Plus, they are washable so I don’t have to try this trick I just learned for removing crayon scribbles.
Play Cookware–  Just Like Home Stainless Steel Cookware Playset – $14.99 on sale from $19.99! Absolutely adorable and perfect for the little kitchen I bought her.
–  Just Like Home 85 Piece Food Set – $10.99 Plastic and perfect for pretend play.


You can’t beat shopping from the comfort of your own home, can you?  While this list is just my girl’s top 10 gift ideas {and I’m sure she could find more to add!}, eBay has put together a much larger Gift Guide to make shopping even easier!  You can also access the Gift Guide through the eBay mobile app which makes it convenient to shop anywhere, anytime!  You are no longer confined to sit in front of the computer to shop eBay but now you can shop from the comfort of your car {if you’re the passenger!} or the comfort of your living room.  You get the picture!  If you haven’t downloaded the app, I highly recommend checking it out.  I’m all about simplifying and saving money!
