Gift for child's aunt

Trying to think of a gift for my daughter's aunt, who is 30, that would come from my 4 year old daughter. I would like it to be special and sweet and nice but possibly juvenile.

http://www.etsy.com/listing/97318769...=cat_gallery_8

Would friendship bracelets like this etsy listing be nice? Or are friendship bracelets only for friends?

Re: Gift for child's aunt

For our kids Godparents (which are all in the Aunt/cousin category too) we made plaster of paris hand prints, painted in a color the kids choose (Godfather got hot pink from Emma hehe) with a little string for ornaments.

I think the friendship bracelets are great for everyone

I don't see anything wrong with the bracelets.

I would ask your 4yo what she wants to give her. My kids get so excited when they have input on the gift. We actually let the kids go to the dollar store and pick gifts for each other, grandparents, mom and dad, etc. I let them get anything they choose. Sure some of it ends up being junk, but they get so exited about giving. And it's only $1, definitely worth it

I did ask my daughter what she wanted to give. She suggested a knight riding a horse.

I can't think of anything that she watches that is specifically princess, but she likes the idea of princesses, likely from fairytales.

I have really warmed up to the idea of letting my daughter choose. Maybe I'll take her to a place that sells Schleich. I'll ask her again and see if her idea changes.

Her aunt is engaged to be married to a man my daughter also knows well.
