My darling niece is turning 11. She is a girly girl, so anything pink.
What would you buy - budget of about $40

If you live nearby perhaps ask to take her out on a shopping spree. My niece loves this and she goes nuts!! Of course I have a limit and she knows that but it is fun just going shop to shop and then we have a cafe lunch/morning tea afterwards. Time with her is gift in itself.

I got my 11 year old niece a dress from Supre for Christmas. Supre is not my kind of store but she and all her friends love it. I found a really nice sun dress for $30. Still age appropriate and pretty!
She also loves jewelry and reading.

My 11 year old loves anything to do with craft, sewing, reading, knitting etc. She's also started to show an interest in skin care and makeup. Although, I'd check with the parents if you're considering anything beauty related.
My daughters love Diva too
Definitely craft though

My DD11 and all of her friends pretty much want smiggle anything smiggle, something from Diva or books also would be high on their lists.

Jewelry from some place like Diva.
Any sort of pretty stationary/pens etc. Does NOT have to be smiggle. Even just a pretty notepad.
Books, with a pretty bookmark.
Craft sets - you can get great kits where you make your own perfume, lip gloss,beauty treatments etc.
A pink fluffy/sparkly/frilly pillow to go on her bed. Find a matching throw rug.
A picture frame to go in her room - you can lots of pretty pink sparkly ones.
