Here are our favorite gifts for the American Girl enthusiast:
Here are four doll options to fit almost any budget:
American Girl — The originals.
American Girl Wellie Wishers — 14.5″ instead of the original 18″ and a lower price point. Super cute! (also check Costco during the holiday season)
Madame Alexander — These look very similar to American Girl dolls and are priced around $45 – $70. Skip the super expensive options, those may be dolls that are no longer made.
Our Generation Dolls — Offered by Target. A pretty good knock-off but the hair is definitely different. Good for the price.
Here are ideas for how to make an American Girl doll awesome (items fit any 18″ doll):
Doll Hairbrush— This one is quite a bit less than on the American Girl website.
Pink Garden Clogs (Crocs) — Cute little garden shoes.
Knit Nightgown — Little girls love getting their dolls pajamas on right before bed.
Doll Backpack — Fits 18″ doll and can hold small stuffed animal.
Stylish Doll Boots — Grey UGG-style boots are a big hit.
Doll Bicycle Seat — This is on my list this year. Both girls want to drive around their dolls on their bikes.
Silver Glitter Doll Dress Shoes — Cute for any doll. Or choose from Pink Glitter.
Doll Cheerleader Outfit Set Includes Pom Poms Doll Accessories & Pink Cheerleader Doll Dress — Much cheaper than the store and comes with all the extras.
Sparkle Princess Dress Clothes inspired by Elsa — Great for those that love Frozen.
3 Piece Ice Skating Outfit and Skates (Includes Sparkly Ice Skating Skirt, Ice Skates, and Hair Clip)
Gymnastics Outfit — Perfect for the little gymnast.
Sparkle Princess Dress Clothes inspired by Anna — Great for those that love Frozen.
Doll Travel Case With Bed And Bedding — Perfect for overnights with friends.
Doll Scooter & Helmet Set — Super cute!
Doll Soccer Outfit, Ball, Black Socks & Cleats — Perfect for the soccer player.
KidKraft Little Doll Armoire and Hangers — We have been stuffing the doll clothes in a bin but it might be nice to have a little hanging storage. A small doll corner would be cute to create.
Baby Doll Carrier — I love seeing little girls (and boys) carry their babies around. It’s adorable.
Badger Basket Doll Bunk Beds With Ladder — I’ve tried to convince my dad to make one of these but I think I’ll receive it faster if I just order it online. Perfect to finish off that doll corner of the room.
American Girl Extras
4 Film Favorites: American Girl DVD — Four American Girl full-length movies on one DVD. Includes Felicity, Molly, Samantha, and Kit Kitteridge.
American Girl craft kits — These kits cover the gamut of crafting: scrapbooking, bracelet making, sewing, card making, and painting. The colors are trendy and the finished products are high-quality. Use a 40% or 50% off coupon at Michael’s to get the best deal.
American Girl Play Scenes & Paper Dolls books — These books focus on the historical characters and would be an inexpensive gift for a girl who already has an American Girl doll.

JoAnn Fabric stores also carry a small section of dolls, clothes & accessories for 18″ dolls and they’re darling! You can often use a 50% off coupon, too!
