Hockey themed present for 12yo girl

Hi - parents of girls who are mad on hockey!

Friends of ours have a 12yo who is seriously keen on hockey (plays x3/wk) and who has her eyes on the U16 national team.

I asked her dad for present ideas and he hesitated, saying the only thing she's into is hockey!

So any suggestions of a present for her that's hockey themed? Or a voucher for a hockey shop (Glasgow) and if so which one??

TIA

Wow, that's hard. Bumping for you!

What does she wear to train? Nice sports gear from John Lewis? She could easily exchange that for something else. You could get a sporty top for around £20 no problem.

My DH is hockey mad. (has been since the age of 12).

How about hockey socks & new shin pads? What's your budget? (am guessing new hockey stick for friends DD is a no-go but depends how close you are?)

Will talk to DH when I go up to bed in a minute and report back in morning

What about tickets/voucher to a professional game at their local centre?

DS used to play hockey and he loved watching the league professionals on Sunday evenings playing. Think the tickets were around £7 to £11 or something..

Multi coloured gum shield in club colours - all the rage apparently in DS's team.

There's a good sports shop in galsgow with hockey things, just can't remember what it's called.

Grey's? Or is that a hockey brand?

Greaves I think. My dad has bought good hockey stuff for dd2 from there
