what to give to a 10 year old?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ben's little sister has her birthday tomorrow she will turn 10.
I've asked her what she liked but she only replied with teddy bears.
Considering im low on money i dont plan to buy her a big gift, but i think to get her a teddy is a bit useless because she will just put it away?

Their mum told me to get a phone card or just give her money.

What are your ideas?

Is she crafty? How about one of those cool craft kits to design a candle holder, or a photo frame. I loved them when I was that age.

not that i know of.
I know the 7 year old still loves barbies.
My mum was still giving me dolls at 10. but i think i might give her a photo frame .
She actually wants a pet, but ive refused to give her one her dad would kill me

A tequila bottle for the "Big sister"( I mean you Fran!...) should be fine and for the kid..........what about a photo camera cheap? or a ticket for cinema all included????

A photo frame is a cool idea! I think they are very reasonable in price and the rang of them is overwhelming.

Maybe a scrapbooking kit for beginners.

At 10, I always wanted books. That was the year that I got "Alice In Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass".

What's wrong with giving her a teddy bear? My nieces at that age were very grown up, but still loved teddy bears and stuffed clowns, and disney stuff, I think just because they didn't want to grow up too fast. If she told you that herself, I think that would be a lovely gift - you can find a little "collectible" bear, not just a baby toy.

Also, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe might be a good choice for a book - fantastic and the movie is coming out in December.

How about a makeup starter kit or something.

I like the idea for a ticket to the movies...make it two, and take her to the movie of her choice!

My daughter is 9-1/2, and likes jewelry. If you could find an inexpensive teddy bear necklace, she would love that. Or a shirt with a picture of a bear? Otherwise a pretty picture frame is a good idea. And ask Ben what else she likes besides teddy bears!

Rigel!

How about a pretty hair clip or hair band she can show off at school or at parties? I remember having fun comparing accessories with friends at that age.

lol Ben doesnt know he is 21 and hasnt lived with her since the past.. hmm 8 years or so

I have a photo Frame, and i will get her some chocolates and a teddy.
I sort of feel bad because im actually on minus on my bank account untill the 1st, so im just getting her little things with the money i have left.

I only said that a teddy is a bit useless because she never gets pocket money or decent clothes from her dad. If i see a nice t shirt or something i will get it for her.

Well im off to make her a birthday card now
