Gift Ideas Tomboys Will Love!

I always thought when I had a daughter I’d be up to my elbows in nail polish, sparkly hair bows and Barbies. I should have known the moment Eva came roaring into this world, loudly letting everyone know that she had arrived, that my girl wasn’t going to be the typical princess.

She lives to spend her days outside digging for treasure or dinosaur bones. When given the choice between joining dance or a sport, she chose Karate.

She gets excited to learn new things and create new inventions of her own. She loves to let her imagination run wild whether she’s drawing, painting, playing with her best friend, or reading a book. Unlike most kids, I never find her in front of the TV.

Being a tomboy mom has been one of the greatest adventures of my life! She is fiercely independent, never apologizes for being herself, and stands up for what she believes in. She is a different kind of princess altogether, and I love her for it.

Though she’s easy to love, she’s not so easy to shop for! If you have a Tomboy of your own, you probably understand the struggle of gifts like I do. Whether it’s birthdays or Christmas, I’m always wracking my brain trying to come up with gift ideas for Eva.

I’ve finally put together a list of gifts I know your tomboy will love – because mine loved every single one!

My daughter is the same way and would absolutely prefer to be getting messy outside then playing with Barbies inside! I love the Cricket Pro 800 Standing Electronic Dartboard; this would be so much fun to have for all my kids to play together.

My niece is crazy about competitive sports and all kinds of activities. It is fun to buy for her and the glow battle ninja game would be great for her.
