What do girls want for Christmas?

Do you still need to buy a Christmas present for a girl in your family or a friend’s daughter?  Panic no longer, as a girls’ school with approximately 500 pupils, Burgess Hill Girls is in a perfect position to ask the market. So we did!  Here follows Christmas present ideas for girls aged four to eighteen. We have given two of the most popular ideas for each age. We are also finding that our girls are increasingly happy to admit they have more than enough and want to do something for others at this time of year. So we have added their charitable ideas too, titled ‘or why not..?’
