I need one more gift for her. Shes into Dragons (like obsessively), drawing (dragons mainly) but already has a pricey drawing tablet, and a selection of pencils. I've ordered these felt pens she wanted already too. Also has a dragon art book coming..

She doesnt wear make up, doesnt care about clothes, not into music or anything on tv.

Doesnt play games, has a bunch of books she still hasnt read.

Likes Harry Potter, but no room in bedroom for any more trinkets or lego sets.

She lives in the same 5 outfits and is hard to get her to branch out.

Nice smellies/shower stuff, the body shop or somewhere like Hollister?

New school bag, bottle, lunch box, pencil case.


'How to draw' type books

Onesie, nice pj's, slippers.

Things for bedroom, duvet set, cushions, fairy lights.

Cosy blanket, hat/scarf/gloves set.


Tickets for somewhere?

I like Etsy for people that are tricky to buy for... If you search on there for dragons lots of things come up!

Does she have a proper art easel? DD is very similar with her art and disliking toys/clothes/make up etc, but I’ve found a lovely easel (that can collapse, she’s a box room) for her Christmas

Buy a regular lizard from a pet store. Put it on a diet of steroids and protein and take it to the gym three times a week. By mid december you will have your very own dragon. Good luck wrapping the fucker though.

@dawnlassie I absolutely lost it at your comment grin

Thanks everyone for your suggestions!

A few years ago she was the easiest to buy for, now shes so single minded in her hobby (drawing dragons) that it's impossible to get her to do anything else.

Posted before finished.

Very welcome anyway. Often good to think outside the box and sometimes in another room completely.

Is she into reading? I once got a beautiful illustrated version of the Hobbit it was a comic book style and I loved it when I was her age. And of course it would have great photos of Smaug the dragon in it.

A dragon wall decal for her room?

My dd likes dragons too, we have had a few Christmas’s where dragons and Pokemon have been the only interests. Dd collect the Schleich dragons, sometimes there’s a few on offer on amazon for Black Friday (they are pricy), she also has a few dragon ornaments and a trinket box. How about a jigsaw puzzle or the Lego dragon? Also look at diamond painting or adult painting by numbers, I think you can get dragon ones on canvas?

My dd is now 16 and I haven’t found anything to buy her yet, lie your dd she has never been into clothes, she has way too much dragon stuff now so there’s nothing left to get her 🤣
