Zoe with kids - BEST (1)
We all know that one woman that seems to have it all figured out.   Lucky for us, that gal, Zoe Schaeffer took some time out from her cult blog, Macaroon Original to share some ideas with us on the best gifts for the little girls in your life.  A former beauty editor and store owner, Schaeffer has a keen eye and plenty of practice as a mom to three beautiful girls herself.  Shop her picks below:



Nobody likes a headdress more than I do. Nobody. This candy colored style is the latest incarnation of the celebrated feathered accessory. I force my kids to wear them during family photos and it’s paid off in spades.

Frou Frou Coronet $42


Hearts Soccer Ball


I have three daughters so it’s a flurry of femme toys at all times. That said, my middle one has a sporty side that craves the field as much as she craves her fairies. This soccer ball begs to be kicked by the goal-driven girl.


Hearts Soccer Ball $17.99


Lottie Dolls 2


Lottie Dolls 3


This British brand is a hit in my house. The dolls all come in the dopest little ensembles. It’s a gift that any style-crazed mom can really get behind.


Lottie Dolls  $19.95 each



Older shutterbugs will be psyched to receive this chic Lomo Instant Camera. Though it doesn’t really teach delayed gratification, it will help her understand that ancient concept called “film.”


Lomo’Instant Camera $148

Flower Press Acorn


A flower press may seem dated but it encourages all the right stuff: exploring nature, learning about flora and fauna, and stealthfully picking things in your neighbor’s yard. This one is gorgeously bound in wood.


Flower Press $22

Rio Rollerskates

Kids three and up will dig these old-school roller skates – a welcome change from today’s Hoverboard. So hit the nearest rink with her in souped up wheels and a flurry of flashbacks.

Rio Rollerskates $84.56

Wovenplay Cape

Your fanciest friend will love you for splurging on this magical, fringed cape. It makes a stylish topper for a chilly day but also doubles as a playful fairy-in-the-woods situation.

Wovenplay Lion Cape $160

Witch Potion 2


Some little sorceress will get a kick out of this DIY witches brew, which comes complete with bones, slime and creepy crawlies. Big brothers will wanna get in on the action as well.

Makers Mess Witch Potion Kit $18

Mesdames et Messieurs

Cooler than traditional checkers, this French version comes with quirky little faces to place on chips. Place it all in it’s travel pouch when you’re done and tote it on your next trip (even if it’s not Paris).


Mesdames & Messieurs Checkers $22

Deborah Lippman Glitter Polish

I think sparkly nail polish is in a little girl’s DNA. Forego the kiddie brands that peel off in an instant and grab these instead – they’re 5-free so they’re safe and long-lasting (for non-biters, of course).

Deborah Lippmann nail polish $20 each
