Suri Cruise turns 4 on Sunday (yes, time flies when you’re an A-List babe), which means you’ve got less than 24 hours to buy her a birthday gift. What do you get for the celebrity girl who has everything? For the child whose every outfit is chronicled, photographed, and preserved for posterity? Have no fear, we’ve got a few ideas.
A gift that will please her dad:
Well, there’s nothing like buying Suri the full collection of L. Ron Hubbard novels. It’ll take her some time to grow into them, but Tom Cruise will be thrilled to see Hubbard’s books on his daughter’s shelves. Hubbard, of course, was the founder of Scientology. He was also a prolific writer of science fiction.
Sure, you can’t afford to overspend on Suri the way her mom does, but have heart! Katie Holmes has been seen shopping at Gap Kids. So how about augmenting Suri’s Gap wardrobe with the foil print sundress, for $32.50, at right?
A gift that will please her doctor:
Sneakers, please. Help Suri undo the damage she may have done to her feet from wearing high heels. I mean, isn’t it time she had a pair of sneakers? Bedroom slippers are whimsical and ballet flats are stylish, but every once in a while even the girliest-of-girls needs to get down in the dirt and play.
A gift that will please herself:
When it comes to Suri Cruise, you can’t go wrong with bunny ears. And yet, she already has a beloved pair. So how about diversifying her collection? Any good costume store will carry cat and mouse ears. Or, make your own. Trust me: Cotton balls, pipe-cleaners, a sturdy headband, and a glue-gun will do the trick. Nothing says “I Love You, Suri” like a gift you’ve made yourself.
Happy Birthday, Suri! I’ll see you on the other side of 4.
