  • What else does she want? She should be able to tell you. I wouldn't get make-up unless she wants it. Gift card to her favorite store? Cash? MP3 player? Shoes?

  • what does she like or want? With 11 year olds, I dont think of make up as being the right gift, unless it's lip gloss, yummy smelling lotions, or maybe some fun nail polish. Does she like things for her hair? New shoes, undies, socks, an art kit of some type, video games, gift cards, books, a new stylish coat, boots... It's hard to answer since we don't know her.

  • 11 is pretty young for makeup. What is she interested in? Ask her what she'd like.

  • she is your daughter- you don't know enough about her to know what she wants?

    is makeup really the best thing to get a gril who is turning 11?

    what music does she like? does she like to do artsy things or make things? does she like jewelry? neon things? is she into a sport?

  • My dd just turned 12. She likes jewelry, scarves, and craft stuff - right now she and her friends are making the rubber band bracelets (google it)

  • Books. Craft stuff. A journal. A camera. Jewelry or a gift card to an accessory store. Shoes.

    Why don't we start with what she is interested in. Can you tell us that much?
