Looking for some ideas for my dd who has just turned 11 in Nov.

I've been wracking my brains for weeks trying to come up with what to get her for xmas.

I have a few small things - some ps3 games she wanted (they are older ones she got the new one in the series for her birthday) ,i tunes voucher, a couple of dvds and a nail polish kit (she loves painting them up)  and I have a new razor scooter on reserve to pick up (she is keen for this)  but other than that I'm at a loss.

she not one to have a wish list and the standard answer is " I don't know" .
She never really asks for much and doesn't really get much during the year, so I do like to make her birthday and xmas special with a little extra.

she likes art / craft, animals, computer games and has an ipod, ds etc

any ideas ? Anyone bought for a 10 -12 year old girl ?

I just posted this idea in another thread but might be helpful for you as well. How about giving her an experience type gift eg; Movie Tickets/Day Spa/Manicure/Adventure park/Concert tickets/High Tea what ever takes her fancy, then you can go and have a girly day/evening together.

My DD#1 is 13 and DD#2 & DD#3 are 9.

You reminded me of something I forgot. My girls want nail polish that apparently changes colour depending on your mood.

My girls are all getting new scooters from their grandma which they will love. DD#1 loves Owls and Paris (Effiel Tower) stuff so she is getting things in those themes. Like a quilt set, cushion, some ornaments and lamp. DD#2 & DD#3 just got pillow pets and nice new beach towels, bags and cameras for their birthday.

What about Smiggle or Typo stuff?

eta: I have also been thinking of Luna Park passes. If we buy them before the 23rd (I think) of December then we will get an extra year free. So 2 years for $99 which is good.

That colour changing nail polish sounds good - great for stocking filler - do you know where to get it ??

I forgot to add - she has waaaayyy too much Smiggle stuff - she got gift vouchers and gift cards from  relies and friends for her birthday and spent quite a lot of it at Smiggle lol

I like the experiences idea too - though I have already bought tickets to Pink for us for next year - though to be honest that was as much my present to me as to her !! lol

My twins just had their birthday too and now have tons of smiggle stuff. And DD#3 still begged DD#1 and DD#2 to buy her smiggle for christmas. LOL

Books .. my 11yr old is a really big reader.
Something for her room .. a fluffy pillow, mirror/print for the wall, etc
Clothes
Beach towel, beach bag
Jewelry
Craft kit of some sort - you can ones to make/build pretty much anything.
Science type kit - ranging from the ulta girly (make your own perfume/lip gloss) through to more serious ones. I was in the Australian geographic shop the other day, and saw heaps of things I'd love to get my girls (crystal growing stuff, grow your own bonsai tree, magic kits etc)

Sounds like you already have heaps for her, but she sounds a bit like I was at that age. I loved 1500piece jigsaw puzzles, and any craft kits for making things. Getting the materials together for craft activities was usually a drag unless I had been gifted some complete kit.

DD turns 11 in March

This year her main present from us is an ipod touch and case but she's also got a few stocking fillers:

A nice dress and pair of shoes for Christmas day
A book
Some schleich animals that she likes - mainly horses and dogs
Some Warhammer Fantasy miniatures and paints/brushes (she likes painting them with DH when he does his)

Other ideas include things like a new lamp, wall print or rug for her bedroom, new bed linen, some skincare products designed for young girls, an experience of some sort depending on her interests (DD would love to go horseriding for example).

Thanks for the great ideas original.gif

I haven't  heard of  Gloss, but have found out there is one about 45min away - luckily my 'ex mil' lives not far from there, so if I don't get down there I might be able to get her to pick it up and bring it up when she comes to spend next weekend with us.

My 11 yr old DD was the same - had no idea what she wanted. Ive gotten her some ipad accessories and gadgets like a wireless keyboard, some glow in the dark nail polish, dresses, a squish gummy bear night light thing, a toadstool money box, and a few things like that but I havent yet gotten anything mainbso maybe a new scooter.

A voucher for a clothes shop and taking her out for a "girly day" so she can choose her own? I got this for my stepdaughter's 11th birthday and she loved it!
Usually my DP buys clothes for the girls or takes them both out shopping, so it was really special that she got to go to the mall without the little sister etc..

DD#1 likes Gloss better than Diva. It has a bit of everything. The girls spent a fair bit of time in there getting presents for each other. DD#1 bought DD#3 a cute handbag and DD#2 bought DD#1 some sparkly earphones. DD#3 got me something from there too (I was told I had to wait outside the store LOL).
