Gift ideas for Children with Indian Heritage

With the holidays coming up I thought it might be nice to put together some gift ideas for little ones, especially gifts that have some sort of connection to India, without having to hop on the next plane to India… I’d love to hear any ideas you have to add to this list!

Girl and Boy from India Paper Dolls
Namaste Boy & Girl T-shirt Designs
Hearts for Hearts Girls – Nahji from India and Chai Time with Nahji: Sari Outfit & Tea Set
Ticket To Ride India: Expansion Pack (preorder) and be sure to get the original game to go with it Ticket To Ride (This is the best game ever – we love it!)
Henna Tattoos (stocking stuffer?!)
A ghagra choli/lehnga for American Girl Dolls (I was an American Girl fan growing up, sadly they don’t have an Indian American girl yet, this is the next best thing, I guess!  They do have Sonali, but she seems to be sold out.)

Who am I kidding, I’m going to put a couple of these things on my list!  How about you, any ideas to add for the kids (and the big kids!)?

    Fun! I was racking my brains for ideas for my daughter Anjali. I will be clicking away shortly and ordering stuff. (FYI, it often pays to order toys from Amazon sellers in November — they seem to always jack their prices up once the holiday shopping frenzy begins.)

    There was/is an Indian American Girl doll — her name is Sonali. My daughter’s coloring is different and I also wanted to wait until she was older so she could pick out her own doll (if she wants – please oh please! :-)

    For some reason, my boy is SO much easier and fun. I don’t really care for many of the girl toys options out there these days. Sigh. But the boy? I have wicked fun shopping for him! Mama’s been wanting a Nintendo DSi for years. Watch out, Christmas 2011!

    Hey Cagey!

    How did I miss that there was an Indian American Girl?! (I still get their email newsletters – ha!) But I am kind of disappointed that she was a sidekick and not the “main” girl. And she seems to be sold out – She was from 2009. I was always more of a fan of the historical girls & the company in general before Mattel took over. Anyway, thanks – I updated the post with the new info!

    And totally agree – it is fun to shop for the kids – we can relive our childhoods and get what WE want this time around! lol! We got Miss A a wooden dollhouse while we were in The Netherlands and I’ve already put it together, and stashed it in an upstairs closet – I’m tempted to play with it after she goes to bed at night :-)
