I am so so so so so sooooo stuck for DD's birthday this year. She's not into anything, hasn't asked for anything, and has everything!
She's getting a new scooter for Christmas. We have a trampoline and bikes and all the outdoorsy stuff. She has a laptop, an ipod touch, a Wii and a DSi so is set for technology.
She has an abundance of arts and crafts and stationary.
She absolutely LOVES LOVES LOVES (I really cannot exaggerate that enough LOL) SpongeBob Squarepants, but has all the DVD's and knick-knacky type stuff, and I can't find anything "really really cool" IYKWIM?
We live in Perth, where "experience" type stuff is pretty boring and done to death.

My daughter has just turned 9 and she got a new bike and a swimming costume. She also went pony riding with a friend for 3 hours in lieu of a party.

If she loves SpongeBob, why not make some Krabby Patties together for the birthday lunch/dinner and look into bubble-blowing machines/toys just for fun for the day outside. Alternatively, butterfly (jellyfish) catching with nets (nearby botanical gardens?).

A pet? (Obviously a lot of consideration for this one)
A Girly day of hair, makeup, nails.

For christmas my DD9 is getting the Disney Infinity game for the Wii. How about a camera? We just gave our DD our old digital camera after upgrading our & she loves it. You could buy her some editing software for her laptop & maybe some scrapbooking stuff.

Camera is high on the list for my DD turning 10. Top of the list is a horse .. .umm, so not going to happen
Depends on whether you want a big gift, or are happy with smaller stuff.
For my DD1's 11th, I made up a basket of stuff. New book, pretty tshirt, some bits and pieces of makeup, nail polish and hair things, iTunes card, a cute little googly eye teddy .. mmm, can't remember if there was anything else in there.
Some things I wrapped individually, others I left unwrapped. Put it all in a basket, with a pretty ribbon and some balloons tied to it.
She absolutely LOVED it, and it was a way of combining the easy to buy little things into one decent great present.

Doesn't have to be something big at all. There's nothing "big" she wants or needs really. I've just always had an idea for one perfect gift in previous years, that I know she'll love.

I had a similar issue with dd turning 9 recently.
She ended up with a soft toy (Boo), lots of lego, books, pj's, 2 dresses, new texta's, a lockable diary, dvd's (the early Harry Potter), cross word puzzles (she has a thing for them) and a trip interstate. Plus a play date with some other girls tba at some point in the near future.
No big ticket items and the trip worked because I needed to be interstate at the time. She has everything and more that she could possibly want or need.

What about a gopro or cheaper equivalent? We are getting them for our boys this year (cheaper ones) so they can put them on their bikes/helmets etc.

A sewing machine and some pretty material and cotton and easy patterns?
Hair crimper/curler/straightener/hair dryer?
Magazine subscription to something she is interested in?
Disco lamp for her room?
Cross stitch kit?
