Has she in interests you could encourage?
Stargazing? lots to go with that.
Is she into crafts? an easel and art supplies.

I have dreamt of having one of these for ages, and getting one to try before giving it to getting another one for the kids.

Marble run.

30not13 · 11/10/2020 17:58

Electronic keyboard or a guitar?
Telescope or microscope?
Alexa and Audio books subscription?
Magazine delivery subscription?

Sounds like you've had a rough time and people are maybe not reading the thread and seeing there is obviously serious stuff going on so I hope you dont feel upset at the few judgy comments.

Metal detector
Lego dots
Craft subscription
Fluffy dressing gown
Na na na dolls (they are awful but my DD likes them)

Crafting stuff

Aroundtheworldin80moves · 11/10/2020 18:56

My DD7 favourite activity is making dens in the garden. Would she like a den making kit?

IwishIwasyoda · 11/10/2020 19:03

How about craft items? Why not make up a big box of kits and craft items to keep her occupied? We've just started with silk and foam clay and have loads of arty bits, paints, pom pom kits, foam etc. Decent colouring book, paint by sticker book etc.
We also have a magazine subscription - quiz kids at moment.
Lots of books, not just fiction.
Board games that all the family can play- Ticket to ride junior is fab

HintOfVintagePink · 11/10/2020 19:05

One of my nieces is the same age. She is quite outdoorsy and would love a den making kit or pretty lights to hand in the garden or out around her own window.

How about letting her choose a theme or colour for her bedroom and getting her a few bits to decorate it?. You could plan some good storage areas and use it as a chance to have a good clear out. No judgement here - we always have a clear out pre Christmas and a trip to the charity shop or food bank in mid November to pass on a few bits.

User07 · 11/10/2020 19:14

Does she have any hobbies? What about a voucher for so many horse riding lessons, or whatever activity she might be interested and the bits and pieces to go with it?

randomer · 11/10/2020 19:22

a den making kit? The world has gone mad. Sponser some children who don't have everything.

nocutsnobuttsnococonuts · 11/10/2020 19:26

My dd is 8, some things on her list/she would love.
Lol dolls - loads of new stuff just come out and more coming before Christmas.
Na na na dolls.
Build a bear teddies - pokemon and llama ones!
Cave club dolls.
Enchantimals dolls.
Rainbow high dolls.
Claires accessories tat - jewellery, overpriced teddies.
Smiggle stationary and notebook.
Dressing up - descendants, frozen 2, disney zombies.

And things we use alot - kindle for reading, easy to chuck in my bag for reading on bus journeys/at appointments. Echo dot with spotify subscription - music, we do quizzes, ask questions for homework, set alarms or messages between them. Boppi the llama is well loved.

I'm getting my dds (and me!) a milk frother for christmas - complete with matching mugs, different hot chocolates, marshmallows and flakes. So maybe look at other cooking appliances wrapped with apron - waffle maker, smoothie maker, soup maker, popcorn maker, whatever she might be interested in.

How about customised clothes or pictures/accessories for her room?

17caterpillars1mouse · 11/10/2020 19:28

Stomp rocket
Nerf gun
Craft kits
Sticker book
Colouring book with scented gel pens
Character throw for her room
Digital camera
Zoo keeper experience day
Kids baking kit with kids cookbook
Fish tank

Just trying to think of things you might not of come up with

Marchitectmummy · 11/10/2020 19:29

Kids National Geographic subscription?
What about a hobby like knitting or crochet?
Sewing machine to make clothes for her doll?

What does she enjoy most out of the things she has?

Marchitectmummy · 11/10/2020 19:37

Does she like painting? There are some brilliant online live classes now, you could buy her some of those and canvas and some acrylic paints ?

Mothertocrazy91 · 11/10/2020 19:38

Thank you the national geography is a great idea as she likes their rock sets ( she loves rocks In general )
We don’t have a garden which limits the outdoor stuff we can have.
Thanks for everyone’s ideas
I do compensate a lot so trying to find non doll stuff as it just always seems to be so Much of the same stuff.

Mothertocrazy91 · 11/10/2020 19:39

Ahh yes a digital camera is a good idea she loves taking photos
Are the Polaroid ones worth it or would you bet a normal digital one ?

Can never have too many books. All the classics and more.

Emma10702 · 11/10/2020 19:42

Vetch kidizoom studio, also agree with the Lego dots & basketball net previous posters have suggested. They would make great gifts. Does she like playmobil? Can often get good deals on some of the sets. The Aquarium is really cute.

TheoneandObi · 11/10/2020 19:59

Baking stuff. A good clear kids baking book, fun cookie cutters, cupcake cases, icing bags and nozzles, her own wooden spoon and bowl etc. Maybe even a hamper of ingredients to get started - flour, sugar, eggs, good quality vanilla essence, cocoa, icing sugar).

lorisparkle · 11/10/2020 20:33

If she likes rocks how about a microscope or a science kit. My boys love growing crystals and have a large rock collection (both found 'treasures' and ones they have bought). They also loved a magnet kit and you can get solar panel kits, robot kits, and volcano kits too.

They also loved marble runs and there are amazing and very expensive wooden sets you can buy.

BernadetteRostankowskiWolowitz · 11/10/2020 20:38

Keyboard and basic music book

DonLewis · 11/10/2020 20:41

A rock tumbler sounds like a great gift.
An alexa?

She sounds like she has got it tough. Hope she has a lovely birthday Smile

RainbowMum11 · 11/10/2020 20:51

How about some experiences or trips?
We have had a few days in London, a trip to Harry Potter Studios and a surprise trip to Disneyland Paris as Christmas/birthday presents as she doesn't need anything big and will get a lot more enjoyment from special trips.

TheCrow · 11/10/2020 20:56

Our town has a Facebook group of people who paint rocks and hide them in parks and public places with the name of the group on the back. The idea is you find it, post a photo on the Facebook group then hide it somewhere else for someone else to find. My 8 year old loves looking out for them, maybe see if you have a local group and get some paints, the works and b&m etc have rock painting kits in
