    Default Present ideas for 9 year old girl?!

    Hi everyone. So DD1 is turning 9 next week & she is sooo hard to buy for. When I ask what she wants she replies "I don't know" and to be quiet honest I'm sick of asking.
    She's quiet a shy girl who likes arts & crafts & animals.
    Can anyone suggest anything? That or I'll scour the shops for hours getting things she "might" like.

    You said she likes animals, any chance of getting her her own pet? Or an interactive voucher to the zoo (or movies, bowling, ice skating etc)

    Things from smiggle
    A little CD player for her room
    Dvds
    Jewlery
    Something for outdoors like a scooter or roller blades

    I always thought my DD was over the toys faze but for her 9th birthday last week she really wanted those interactive birds, it's her favorite present. Otherwise you can never go wrong with smiggle pencil cases and pens. Shopkins (argh so over shopkins lol), any arts and crafts, clothes, crop tops and matching undies.

    My DS has been given 2 packs of Qixels for his birthday today. I'm a little addicted to them
    Other than that there's lots of awesome LED wearables and other fun craft/tech stuff that is really awesome for that age.
    Does she like books? There's some great stuff for ages 9-12, if she's interested I could give you a good list of titles.

    I have seen the Qixels in the shops but haven't picked up the box to suss them out. Are they like Beado's? Because she has them & loves them.
    And yes she does like books. She is into the "Weirdo" books & the story treehouse ones as well. Any other suggestions would be great 👍🏻 thank you 😊
