Looking for gift ideas for a 10 year old girl. She's quite an intelligent girl and from the outset not a girlie girl - however hard to tell if it's her or her mum's influence (mum is gay).
I do know she likes One Direction which I assume is typical of her age group.
Your help appreciated!

My 10 year old isn't that girly either.. I haven't seen her pink in about 3 years lol. She likes really cool colours of nail polish, she bought a dark purple colour with a pearl like finish and black with sparkles colour today and wants to get stuff to do nail art. She loves Fimo,which is like plasticine that you make things out of and bake. Her friends and her make little charms for necklaces and bracelets with them. She also loves drawing, her latest obsession is drawing Japanese anime characters. And of course clothes. Anything that layers, is colourful and goes with her skinny jeans and converses.

Probably not what you are thinking, But At the moment my dd is sewing. I bought her a box and filled it with all types of sewing stuff. I know its more a girly thing but i think most girls would like it. DD loves it and has made fabric covers for her ipod, a blanket type thing for the cat and a couple of other things.
She also collects beenie kids, is into Monster High, loves online games. I just purchased a year membership for a National Geographic game called Animal Jam. Loves playing outside with her scooter or kick the ball around.
She loves her Ipod so maybe some itune cards
IF she is into One direction then maybe a tshirt, there is a mile of one direction stuff you can buy on the net.

My 10yr old DD loves music, so her ipod is well used. Itunes vouchers are a huge hit. She also loves Smiggle, Lego (she's just started collecting the new girly range) She collects lip glosses and has quite a few pretty nail polishes. And of course clothes!

If she owns an iPod, get her an iTunes voucher.
My 10yo DD loves all types of music, so this would go down well with her.

Anything to do with horses, cats, lizards, guinea pigs, snakes. Heck, any animal book, game, piece of clothing/jewellery, etc. Or a trip to the zoo. Or Dr Chris Brown, lol.
