Well my DD is 10, so usually a game for her nintendo DS, clothes as she's into fashion, or sponsor and animal, someone sponsored a panda for her.
Hope that helps smile

Gift card is always good, get on for a music store or Next.

What's your budget?

My DD is 10. She likes getting;

Hobbycraft vouchers
Claires vouchers
Sylvanian Families
Manicure set with varnish
DSi games
Fancy pens, paper etc

A gift voucher would go down well with 11yo DD.

Clothes shop or WHSmith ones have been popular. She also had an Amazon voucher once and loved browsing to decide what to but.

The only other thing I can think of , if the girl is creative, is Harumika.

DDs friend has it/them and they are great.

Crafty arty things like glitter glue or nice quality paint.
Buy her a real CD instead of just a music voucher- something catchy and good, like soft rock or teenish like The Who (try Tommy). Picking out a CD you like will make her feel special too.
A book like Valley of Secrets by Charmiane Hussey or a Jacqueline Wilson boxset, Crusade in Jeans etc.
Anything from Hawkin's Bazaar
Bed throw/cushion with lots of detail/maybe Indian print and sequins- something from Bombay Stores, maybe. It's the "in" side of arty which could make her feel grown up.
Ukuleles are always cool grin
If you're stuck, get lots of nice cards and postcards, pop them in a box, buy her a scrapbook to go with (maybe from The des Ecrivains).

or a CD like school of pop

or a trendy bag/belt/hair stuff

Last year my DD got a pogo, not the stand on a stick and jump, its a polaroid pogo, its a printer for 2 x 3 " pictures which are also stickers. you blue tooth the pictures from your phone/ camera etc direct to it and it prints them out, no ink is required because it runs on zink. It has been fabulous for homework, pictures to mates abroad and for her. The paper for it is cheap too, take a look on amazon, oh make sure you go through Quidco first to get some cash back. it's different and brilliant

sorry didn't read whole thread didn't realise it was for a friend, my idea is out of the budget

curlycat Sun 19-Jun-11 11:13:50

my dd is 11 and she would normally buy

klutz fashion stuff
claires or new look vouchers
costume jewellery
fancy scarfs
those fancy body things to hang jewellery on!
fancy stationery - rymens is really good for that
jacqueline wilson books

you would get most of that for round about £10

Dancergirl Sun 19-Jun-11 11:13:52

Bit and pieces from Accessorize - stationery, bags/purses, hair things

Earrings if she's got pierced ears, if not a pretty necklace

Claire's voucher

Something for her room - cushions, duvet cover
