and I have no clue what to get her! I have always sent her some gifts...nothing crazy of course. Usually some books, toys or games I think she might be interested in at that point. She will be 11 this year. Any ideas on what to get an 11 year old that you don't really know???

I try to steer clear of clothes, anything controversial like Hannah Montana sort of crap or barbies, and makeup. Her mom can make those purchases if she wants her to have them.

I usually just get her some things and then send a gift receipt with it but this year I am struggling. HELP!!!

oooh, my sister just turned 12, I remember eleven being a tough age to buy for, not really into stuffed animals but too young for make up kind of thing.

I got my sister a necklace when she turned 11 (I also put it on a big bear I sent her) Maybe you could do something like that? I don't know, you could just get her a gift card to Target or Walmart or something, that way she gets to pick what she gets.

Sorry for the double post, but what did you end up getting her?

Sorry...I just read this now! Thanks for asking!

I ended up getting her the book The Giver which is one of my most favorite books(I first read it when I was 11.) and a gift card and told her to shop and tell me what she picked out. I figured that was a way for me to get to know her a little better. I had wanted to get her a charm bracelet but ran out of time. I think I am just going to order one and take it to her when I see her this year.

I love it so much! I'm trying to find a copy since I don't have one. I'll have to hit up the local garage sales when the weather turns warmer
