My oldest child is 10. His class decided to do a Secret Santa this year. My son got a girl he didn't know. Now the kids are not supposed to tell, but the teacher told the kids to ask all the kids what they like for Christmas so they had some idea in case someone didnt know the kid they picked. So when my son got a turn to speak with this girl, she was sort of snotty about it. He asked her what she liked. She said I dont know. He said do you like Pokemon? She said no I hate them. He said do you like barbie? She said no I hate them. He said what do you like? She said I dont know. He came home and said I GIVE UP YOU PICK!
The amount you could spend was only $5. So at the store, I found a small $3 mini snowglobe with a christmas tree inside of it, and a bag with a christmas tree for 80 cents. So that is what I got her. Now I am a little concerned about, what if it breaks and cuts her? I dunno if I got the right thing!
I'm glad my kids school doesn't do this! They buy gifts for angeltree instead

I agree with the jewelry, nail polish, etc. ideas. Although the girl sounds like a brat and doesn't really seem to deserve a better gift, I think those things would be appreciated more at age 10 than a snow globe. I'd get a necklace, ring, & bracelet set from the dollar store (if you have a dollar store around you that has stuff like that) and a bottle of nail polish or a lip gloss and throw them in the bag you already have. Maybe give the globe to the teacher? (If you don't have anyone else you could use it for since you already bought it.)
