I need some ideas please!

Have bought dd a Kindle paperwhite, a nice case for it and Lego Friends boat.

I need a couple more things as her sisters have more presents than her!

How about something for her room? Dunelm Mill have a lovely 'teddy bear' range which includes super soft throws and cushions.

Ice watch, Headphones, camera, all seem to go down well at this age

She had an Ice watch last year which she loves and wears every day.

Camera is a good suggestion but is a 'big' present and I have already got her a Kindle. We might get her a camera for her birthday early next year.

Dd is 11 and Rubiks cubes are having a comeback at her school so I've bought her one and the book for her to solve it.
I've bought her a label maker purely because it's something she will like.
Some proper art supplies rather than children's crafts.
A new satchel.
A cake pop maker.

Popcorn maker, some kernels and a DVD.

Thanks all, some good suggestions. Although she's not crafty at all and doesn't enjoy making things (or cooking!)

She's not massively into stationery and I bought her some nice pens for the start of Year 7 so not really sure what to get!

PJs are a good idea, she prefers them to onesies.

How about something like a hairdryer or curling wand?

If she hasn't got her ears pierced yet, get them pierced, if she has, earrings? smile

She's a bit dyspraxic and struggles to do wash her own hair let alone do anything else to it unfortunately.

I like the sound of the monkey!

Also what about one of those star projector lights for her bedroom, if she is into that kind of thing.

Dancergirl Wed 03-Dec-14 22:31:47

Like the look of the fibre optic light thanks isee wonder if she'd like one of those...

Jcee Wed 03-Dec-14 22:54:06
