Non-makeup makeup hamper?

DD1 (10) has asked for some make up for Christmas but given her age I'm a bit reluctant. I was thinking of making up a beauty hamper for her but hopefully without too much actual make up! So far I have bendy rollers, colourful emery boards, a tinted lip balm, some hair accessories, a bath bomb, bubble bath. Was also thinking maybe a clear mascara, although not sure whether that's appropriate given her age? What do you think? Would really welcome some other age appropriate ideas!

Face masks? Home bargains do foot socks with moisturiser in that are quite fun. Pretty packet of tissues. Body spray? (The gold soap and glory one is quite nice - much nicer than the impulse stuff that so many girls seem to douse themselves in!). Hand cream/body butter? A small cosmetic bag she can carry lip balm/tissues etc around in?

What about a nail art set? I've seen sets with some different colour nail varnishes, a precision brush for doing patterns and some of the little sticker things to add.

Pretty tissues and a body spray added to the list! Are lip smackers like a tinted balm? Forgot I had a nail polish in my stash...will add that too.

I've done this for my dd, she's only 7 but wanted a 'pamper' box. Most of the bits I got from primark. Paul Frank bag to put it all in, fun emery boards,expanding flannel, an eye mask you put in the fridge, a monster loofer thing, hair brush and a headband. Then from other places have picked her some face masks animal lip balms, children's nail Polish, bubble bath, body spray and glitter body spray.

I hope she likes it, she's a very girly girl and I'm not so wasnt sure what to buy! The make up bag wa the most expensive item at £3!

I just got my dd a great book about hair styles for her eleventh birthday. She really liked it. It's called braids buns and twists.

Clear mascara - Rimmel do one, my DD uses it on her eyebrows.

Those shower gels "I love" (Superdrugs and Primark sell them. DD likes the Raspberry and Blackcurrant one and the Pomegranate one)

Lip gloss rather than lip stick, body shop do a glittery body butter, lush bath bombs are popular with my dd's and they do lip scrub/sugar which tastes yummy.
