My 10 1/2 year old niece is great at coming up with gift ideas. I usually make a gift guide every year, but this year I just didn’t have time. So when my niece asked if she could make a guide I thought that was an awesome idea!
There are some affiliate links below, if you shop through those links I make a small commission. For this post, any commission I make will be going to Elle so she can save up to buy some Christmas decorations for her room (she loves decorating her room for different holidays).
(Also, Elle can’t eat gluten, so if you see GF in the list below, that indicates a food item is Gluten Free)
