My daughter is 9 and so far I have bought a few outfits but that's it! I have no clue what to get her. She is not into Justin bieber or any of that stuff. She doesn't play with dolls. She likes computer games but already had a ds. Her father (always has to one up me) got her an iPod and a ride on scooter thing. I'm so lost. Any suggestion?????? She's not like most girls. Shes kind of a Tom boy but not too too boyish.

Why don't you just ask her to make a list of 5-10 things she wants and pick from it

My daughter is the same way! Luckily, she does like things such as LPS and art kits.

My dd is similar, however she likes arts stuff and also is wanting a fish tank to breed mollies in so I got her that and all these pieces to it and wrapped them all seperately.

Why don't you get her one of those crayola art centers? My kids love those. My daughter is seven my twins are 8 and they just love to draw. Maybe buy her "crafty" stuff like that. You said she doesn't like justin bieber, but what about another band or musical artist? Umm...how about a hamster??(too much perhaps?? LOLL) or one of those small 25 gallon fish tanks to put on her bedroom dresser? That's all I can come up with at the moment.

Does she like sports teams/movies/plays - you can get her season tickets or passes to things like that.  If she has an ipod, you can get her an itunes gift card/ipod case/better ear phones.
