  • My daughter is 10. Gift cards are nice, but they're not as exciting ans something she can enjoy right away. She would love a diary, fancy pens, soft socks, books and bookmarks, candy, bubble bath, a craft kit. The only thinng I'd say to steer away from are games - my daughter likes games, but it would be sort of a let down to give her a game that requires other players and then not play!

  • Without knowing the child, I'd go with a gift card.

  • I would buy a little goody bag, or if you know what she is into..

    PJ's, movie and some popcorn.

    10.00 blockbuster, pjs and some popcorn.

    Gift card to walmart 10.00, and a little soap set. Something that can be used, forget teddy bears and stuff...

  • I'd get a gift card and let her get what she wants.

  • I wouldn't assume anything unless you know her. I wouldn't go with the stereotype things that society says all 10-yr old girls like. For all ya know she may me a tomboy or just not go with fads and whatever's popular. I'd go with a Visa gift card so she could get what she wants.

  • That's a tough one if you don't know what she is into. If you do know, I would take advantage! For instance, my niece is around this age and really likes art, so I got her some art supplies. Off the top of my head: a cute snuggy blanket, cute slippers, clothes, journal, preteen books, nail polish set, zhu zhu pets, sticker maker, skates, jewelry box, jewelry....that is a tough age to buy for.

  • My favorite gift for pre-teen girls is a diary with a lock, and a fun pen. A special place to keep all of the thoughts she's having now, so that someday she can look back at them and remember how she felt.

  • I'd probably go gift card because I dont know any of her interests.

    Money always works..

    anything else and she could love it or hate it.
