If she likes baking the mixes in jar. Soaps or snowglobe soap that has a toy inside, scarf, ornament with paint inside that will streak. I agree pinterest may help, there are tins of ideas. Hand painted picture frame, can be an easy winter scene for a picture from this winter. Mod podge anything.

How about a snow man kit? Were making them as neighbor gifts this year- just add snow. We just bought a new house, and when we started planting found tons of small landscape rocks-were painting those black like coal. Add a fleece scarf, felt hat, buttons, and felt nose and you have instant fun for snow days.
Just google snowman kit and you can find tons of blogs/instructions.

A button bracelet in colors she likes:

I made one for my 11 year old granddaughter to see what she thought of it, she loved it! So I'm making a few for some friends for Christmas. The more buttons and layering the better.

I wonder if she would like a fancy pretty wreath for her door. Get a round wreath form and a dollar store boa or 2 (depending on the size) and wrap around. Its so cute! I did it for my daughter. You could glue on flowers or anything else you wanted to.
