It may be too early to make a list of possible gifts that you might consider sending to your family and friends, but this could avoid you from feeling drowned during Christmas rush!

As early as November, you may start buying some stuff and in the first week of December, it will be fun to begin wrapping and sending them! Too excited? No, just making sure your intended recipients will get your gifts!

While it’s great to visit malls and shop gifts where you can really look for something cheaper but with quality, sometimes, the more practical thing to do is to shop online.

This is how Lamido Philippines can serve you better. Not only you can find great deals to buy but you can also sell! Yes, you can be one of their trusted sellers!

A pony may be the ultimate birthday or Christmas dream gift but when it comes to a more realistic option a doll is always first choice. Whether it’s a vintage porcelain figure or a classic Barbie, a doll is still one of the most requested girls’ toys.

A girl’s best friend

Although children now live in an always-connected online world the endurance of that little doll as a gift has in no way been diminished. Dolls allow girls to create their own world with an ever-present friend and they provide a great deal of entertainment at very little cost. In fact in terms of value for money and long-term use a doll is a wise (and fun!) investment as a toy. The other bonus is the wealth of choice available and you’re always going to find something to suit your child’s imagination and your budget.

Added fun with accessories

Dolls such as Barbie provide long-term entertainment value mainly due to the amount of accessories available. Low cost add-ons mean you can buy gifts throughout the year or whenever Barbie needs a change of career, such as from an air-hostess into fashion model. Other dolls can be treated to new clothes, toy prams, plastic cars, miniatures houses and, well, pretty much anything imaginable! Who knows, your daughter’s doll might even end up being a collector’s item in the future.

An enduring gift

Many of these toys will become a cherished childhood plaything and some will be kept for years after your child has grown up. There’s definitely something familiar and comforting about that favorite doll that has been well looked after during childhood and brings back happy memories as an adult. Of course some toys can actually go on to become collector’s items and those vintage models can be worth a lot of money. But for a child it’s not about the money, it’s about having a constant companion and a familiar friend who’s always there, ready to be played with.

If you’re stuck for a present for your daughter, granddaughter or niece then look no further than the gift that will stand the test of time. Girls will always remember the person who bought their favorite doll and it may not be a pony but it’s definitely the next best thing.
