I need a present for dd1 (9 years). She is into everything and nothing if that makes sense. She has always been easy to buy for as she is enthusiastic about everything. However, this year I am a bit stumped. she often doesn't play with the things she gets for long. She is very much like I was and spends a lot of time playing imaginary games no props needed lol. We are drowning in books, board games and craft (as I am into that sort of thing) we have magic stuff and juggling stuff (last birthday). She is not very sporty and is not into music or jewellery (she likes it but doesn't wear it). She loves soft toys and I'll make sure she gets another one of those but seriously I'm a bit over soft toys. She has a cheap tablet for games and we have an old family ds which she uses occasionally. We do some experience gifts but not a huge amount as we do a lot of things anyway and my parents often give that sort of gift.
We don't tend to buy a lot of very big gifts. Last year I decided against a furby as they were so much money. The local toy shop is selling furbys at half price. Do you think they are worth it? She has expressed some interest but nothing huge (but she rarely does for anything). If not a furby does anyone else have any ideas? I have some plans for some small things but nothing great.

Is she interested in learning an instrument? Lessons?
Take her shopping to choose her own clothes?
Difficult age, I have two nieces that age and this year has been a struggle with their birthdays. They got vouchers for smiggle and marks and Spencer's (uk).

What about the girl range of Lego? It is a huge hit in our house.
Digital Camera - I know my daughter will go on school camps, have friends over and would love that.
Nail Polish, lip balm type of items. Smiggle is always a huge hit also. Beach towel and new swimmers, Itunes card if she has an iPod. Roller Skates? Friendship bracelet kits. Movie Tickets she can see her choice of movie...
She is getting toward that tween age so might like a surf brand wallet, handbag?

National Geographic -
GO into one of their stores. I can't recommend them enough - they have plenty of inspirational toys for kids. Not the usual stuff like dolls etc - science kits, unusual things and often educational. Give them a try for something different.

I would think that a 9 year old is too old for a furby. They are a bit babyish IMO.
The suggestion by PP of the national geographic shop is good. They have some really great and interesting stuff.
It's coming up to summer so how about stuff like a cricket set, or other outdoor games.
Floaty things to use in the pool if you have one, or one nearby.
A tube of henna to do body decorations (bit tricky though to start with, so maybe a stencil and paste).
Surfboard. (Okay, maybe that's what I'd like, lol, but it might be okay for a 9 year old).

An overnight bag, tote bag, backpack?
Does she like cooking? A cake pop maker, fondue set, cake decorating kit.
A small pet, goldfish, hermit crab?
