What would you buy for a 10 year old girl?

I'm clueless, she is over her loom bands, likes craft and gymnastics.

She doesn't get presents from anyone else in the family so I like to treat her but I just don't know.

Bought 1D perfume set last year but she cherished it so much that she has hardly used it smile

She has a younger sister that I'm buying a girls world for plus mosaic kit and Gelarti and I know she will love them as well but her sister is 4 years younger than her.

If she likes craft, I'd be inclined to go to Hobbycraft and browse, they usually have some pretty decent sets.

DD is 91/2 on her list so far are a new secret diary, stuff from Lush (bath bomb type stuff) some weird thing that you squeeze out of a tube and it make 3d stuff (very bad description I will google it) lots and lots of books and a dog (you might want to give that one a miss - I am pretending not to see it on the list!)

the weird thing is called dohvinci, have just googled it looks a bit crap but it is the kind of thing dd would like

Hobbycraft isn't somewhere I had thought if!

Squeezy 3d stuff is Gelarti - saves you a google smile

She has books galore although I could see if there is an unknown author to her.

I'm ignoring any talk of livestock after her younger sister asking for a unicorn...

I'd maybe get the Gelarti or mosaics for her too.

My 10 yo and her friends are pretty obsessed with shopkins at the moment.

Lush things always go down well. She would like a Claire's voucher. Build a bear is always a favourite?

Ohh Dohvinci - not heard of that, thank you flowers

nancy75 Tue 04-Nov-14 23:09:30

oh no, this is new squeezy 3d stuff - we have a house covered in gelarti dohvinci is the future!

RJ I'm thinking I agree. See, 6yr old will stick and gel away at making a good effort but 10 yr old will use them properly, look after them and make them last so probably a good idea to buy separate if only to avoid arguments smile

Lots of ideas, thank you all so much.

CurlyWurly - you are thinking of Bendaroos (I think!).
Re Hobbycraft, what about some decoupage stuff? You can buy 'blank' cardboard objects, eg boxes, letters, etc and lots of fancy paper and glue. The results can be quite impressive. But getting another gelarti kit is not a bad idea (maybe get a slightly different set).

Also, for a relative I buy for (who is also a 10 year old girl - but quite a grown up one), I was looking at getting one of the 'Klutz' books. The safety pin bracelet one looks good, here:
Book People, but also on Amazon and has good reviews

I'll probably put it together with some smellies and something cuddly.

I have a similar issue with my DD's, regarding age difference but actually quite liking the same things.

I was in bhs earlier and saw this amazing craft\sewing bag.

www.bhs.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?searchTerm=Craft&storeId=13077&productId=16466324&urlRequestType=Base&categoryId=&langId=-1&productIdentifier=product&catalogId=34096

It was big, much bigger than it looks on the website. They had a bright purple sewing machine for £50 and other owl themed craft/sewing stuff.
