The other day we took a look at some inexpensive 3D-printed toys that were predominantly geared towards the boys in your life whom you wanted to get something cool for birthdays, Christmas, whatever. What if you have a family filled with little girls or kids who like to nurture, though? Are there 3D-printed Christmas gifts for girls that allow you to show your love without breaking the bank?
Absolutely. Here are a few prints that I recommend checking out if that’s the position you find yourself in.
Bunny Toy Figurine
Why pay $12 for girly action figures when you can easily print one off yourself for just a few cents? Here’s a generic little bunny figurine that might make a good addition to her collection.
I have to be honest here. This thing creeps me out. It reminds me of the B-rated 1980s horror series The Puppet Master. However, I can see how a little girl would really enjoy playing with a lifelike doll figurine like this. It looks pretty similar to the ones you see in the store.
Keep in mind that this one is several different prints you would have to assemble, however, and it looks like you would need to be pretty hand with painting as well.
If you have a little girl in your family who is a lover of all things science, then she may really like these cutesy-style teeny robots in her stocking for this Christmas.
Any man who builds a dollhouse for the little girl in his life will instantly be a hero. If you’re looking for an inexpensive yet detailed means of furnishing that doll house with furniture, then I highly recommend some of the 3D prints that are available out there. Just to give you a small sampling of some of what you can do, here’s a doll house baby bed, a dining room table, and some plates.
Within about two days of printing non-stop, I think you could have a doll house pretty much completely furnished.
Low-Poly Unicorn Head
There are a lot of low poly models popping up within the 3D-print world, and a unicorn head mounted to the wall above the headboard would be a really cool addition to a little girl’s room. Is it a statement to her liking all things filled with wonder? Or did she slaughter the beast on her last hunt through 1980s Fairy Land? You decide.
If you have a little girl in your family who is a huge fan of all things Barbie, just know that you can literally print just about anything you would ever need for her. My personal favorite is the Tonya Harding Barbie.
Automata Polar Bear With Seal
These things are really cool. There are a host of automata available out there that you can print, but it will take you all day just to get one of them finished and put together. This one is perfect for Christmas. As you crank the little wheel, the seal pops out of the ice to hand a fish to a polar bear. Or is the polar bear excited instead because he’s about to get a two-course dinner? Either way, it’s still pretty cool.
A Simple Rose
This is pretty straightforward. I’m a big fan of the red one. Print her out one of these, and you’ve got the makings of a Beauty and the Beast dress-up imagination game at hand.
I would print this one out with the wood grain-filled filament if I were you. This is a beautiful design that any girl would love, but that would have the heft needed to make it feel like it was quality if you used a type of filament like that.
Low Poly Anatomically Correct Heart Vase
That’s quite a title, is it not? This thing is just cool. Whoever created this is an artistic genius, and out of this whole list, this is my favorite 3D-printed Christmas gift for girls. If there’s a little lady in your family who is a huge fan of medical dramas, first aid, or is looking at going to nursing or medical school, this would be a really cool gift to give this upcoming Christmas. Fill it with a couple of roses, and you’ve got a winner.
Just a Heart
Not much to say about this other than that it is a fun and cool way to demonstrate your love for that little girl who has you wrapped around her little finger. Maybe a great gift for an engineer dad for his little girl?
There are all kinds of 3D-printed Christmas gifts for girls out there that you can find.
But my hope here is to get the gears spinning in your mind as to how you can incorporate these Frugalite-friendly gifts into your own gift stack this upcoming year. So, take a look at some of the 3D printers that are out there. Start to browse the 3D printing downloads out there. You may be impressed with what you can find.

These really are amazing. I’m very impressed. Love the jewelry box, and I liked the doll better than the bunny, but that’s just me. I don’t know how much of an initial investment a 3D printer is, but I could certainly see someone creating things to sell.
