12 year old birthday gift ideas

Dd11 hadn't played with toys since she was 7. DD10 still plays with Barbies and is easy to buy for.

I usually buy her technology, art supplies, clothes or things for her room but she has enough.

Any ideas please?

Make up, crocs as they seem really popular (love mine). A nice bag? Accessories like a ring or necklace? Is she into gaming?

Tickets to a show or event. I just took my 12yo dd to see Six the musical for her birthday and it went down very well.

Something to do, theatre, Alton Towers, indoor skydiving?
A subscription to a magazine?
have you asked her what she would like?

Maybe some fun software, like a collage maker or a 3d design program? Steam gift card if she plays video games or online courses subscription if there is something she might want to try? Tickets to evens or an amusement park season pass are also great ideas.
