I chose earrings because they seem more age-appropriate, although I am twice that age and I'm not above digging through plaster for a toy dinosaur.
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

I wonder if she might prefer a dinosaur figure/toy?  If you think she might, perhaps you could get suggestions for choices here.  For example, if you know that she likes a certain type of dinosaur the most (e.g. sauropods), then you could get suggestions for good figures of that type of dinosaur.

Take the earrings, the exvacation kit is seriously overpriced.
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

I also voted earrings as excavation kits are pretty lousy, but would you not want to invest in a dinosaur figure maybe? If cost is an issue, invest in CollectA, they sell dinosaur figures (more so of obscure dinosaurs, if your sister is into that) for a very cheap price. My friend got me a CollectA Irritator two years ago, and it's still treasured among my collection. If she's into dinosaurs but also likes more 'girly' stuff Amazon has a decent selection of gifts. There are also some very cute dinosaur related jewellery on Etsy:
- Biting Pterosaur Earrings
- Biting T.rex Earrings
- T.rex necklace
- Baby Stegosaurus Necklace

Not trying to assume I know you sister or her preferences more than you, just throwing some stuff out there.

Well, there are few good Exvacation Kits, but most are indeed lousy.
