  • LOL I was gonna suggest the DSi. Thats what we got my son he is turning 11 this month & my cousins dd who is 8. Since you nixed that I would say some clothes or a gift card to her favorite place to buy clothes. Throw in a small handbag, some lip gloss, and some things for her hair.

  • When my daughter was 11, she really enjoyed doing crafts. At Michael's (a craft store, it's also online) there are kits for making your own lip gloss, friendship bracelets, candles, jewelry, etc. If your stepdaughter doesn't go out of the house much, these kind of gifts might be a good way to keep her occupied. And Michael's has a 40% off coupon that comes with the paper every Sunday if there's a store in your area.
