She likes a bit of bling and sparkle, but absolutely not pink or dresses! Any ideas?

Any number of things depending on what her main interests are?

Are you buying for someone else's child or is she your daughter? If it's your daughter could you tell us a bit about her so we can know what sort of things to suggest?

It's just that saying, non-girly doesn't give us a lot to work with...

My 11yo non pink/glittery dd really likes anything minecraft, playing animal crossing on her ds, rollerskating - she has a pair of skates that are adjustable size 3-6 as she's feeling like a weed, her feet are bigger than mine already!

She likes casual type clothes, TShirts and hoodies from superdry and converse trainers.

She's requested a onesie this year for christmas too and a necklace with her initial on.

She's not into music yet even though her 'BFF' loves one direction.

It's for my in laws to buy her. They want to spend 30-40 pounds. She likes lego ( but we are getting her that).

My non-girly 11 yr old dd loves all the usual girls stuff, make up, nail varnish, stationary. Just not in pink or girly colours. everything must come in black or blue.

She has just had a birthday and was most impressed with vouchers from H&M, Smiths, Claire's or High Street Vouchers as she is just starting to go shopping independently with her friends and she feels vouchers are safer than cash.

Maybe a watch - my DD (who's a little bit older) got a bright green Ice watch last year, it looks really cool and is waterproof, useful if you've got a kid who likes doing real stuff.

If she likes lego, does she have any k'nex - they do some really great sets which enable building some really good machines/constructions.
