* photography lessons or class -- a fun one!
* Sephora or Ulta GC
* Amazon GC -- for whatever books she might like
* new lens for her camera
* good version of Photoshop
* fun nail polishes -- OPI has a Minnie Mouse set if you want a Disney bent
* pens -- I always am losing them so love getting replacements

For those with young girls, the budget board had a PSA about a deal at Target on Snow White and Cinderella My First Princess doll sets that normally go for $29.99 and now are ringing up for $8.98! Just scored a Snow White tonight and yep, true. Happy shopping!

The "Disney Princess and Me" dolls and outfits are for 18" dolls and THOSE fit the AG dolls. My girls have both types of dolls and outfits. The Minnie Mouse Disney World set is adorable! The "My Disney Princess" sets are for 16" dolls, though, they wouldn't fit the AG full size dolls but maybe Bitty Babies.

Check the Belle dress box, what size doll does it say it fits?

I LOVE Christmas and I am so glad I found others who love it as much as I do!

My husband was supposed to start a job here in Florida that we moved from Ohio for, but once we moved they told us they job is on hold for a few months. Total freak out and we are trying to live off of a VERY small unemployment check right now. Luckily he will leave for a job that is out of state in October. So anyways, the point of all that is that we don't have the money to start shopping quite yet, though I am working on ideas.

For my 11DD and my 9DD, they get a lot of the same things. This year I am going to get them a video camera to make their American Girl videos on. They both want McKenna AG Dolls and about a million other things from AG. Luckily I always shop the cyber Monday sale and get some great deals.

They both are asking for more Monster High dolls so that hunt will begin again.

For my 9 year old, I am thinking the Lego friends sets and maybe a really nice art set and canvases.
My 11 is usually my easy one, but this year she is getting a bit tricky. They both have dsi's and Kindles so I don't know for sure what to get her.

The big thing they are getting and I am SO excited you would think its for me, is my husband and I are going to build them a HUGE American Girl doll house. 12 feet long and 2/3 of it will be almost 4 feet tall and the last 1/3 will be about 5 1/2 feet tall! I cant wait and all I do is look up stuff to make for it. There will be 7 rooms, 4 bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, and a half bathroom, half walk in closet. American Girl stuff is what they play with most of the time and if I walk into their room one more time and see it destroyed so that "the dolls can have a house" I will scream! lol I know that they will be sooo excited and when they are tired of AG, I have 2 more that can love it!

My 2 year is going to get Alphie and some extra cards and a Leapster and games all of which I already have, and an Our Generation doll and a bed for the doll. I am sure she will get more Barbies as that child is obssessed with Barbies.

My one year old is a big question mark. We already have tons of toys her age, my 3 year was just 1 18 months ago! lol Probably the new Princess Little People and castle and new clothes and pj's.

Sorry for the long post, I am just so excited to have someone to share my excitement with!!!

My DD4 is into the Disney Princess dolls. I went to target tonight based on the budget board tip for 8.98. All the Snow White and Cinderella dolls were full price. It must of been an error because even some of the toy employees said they had no clue and never knew they were ringing up for that price. OHWELL. She also likes Monster High and I found one I never saw before so I picked it up.

But on the bright side, while at WDW last week we bought my DD a new Aurora doll and some princess books and markers and jewelry. Before we left I already got her a Merida doll. My lil man DS (almost 2) got some cars stuff. While at WDW, they both picked out stuffed animals (DD got Mickey and baby goofy and DS got Pooh and Goofy)

Thanks! She actually doesn't have a nice camera...which was my first idea, but I couldn't find a used DSLR for under $200 in good condition. Or under $300 for that matter. Photoshop is a good idea though...and maybe I'll luck out with the camera by Dec!

I'd actually love to give her mine and get myself a Nikon D2000...but $2K is a little out of the $40 budget DH and I set on ourselves, lol.

If she's going to college you might want to check there to see if they offer free or reduced software to students. My university has hundreds of free software programs for students including photoshop. My windows program was even free.

Thanks! I don't see anything through her school, but she'd qualify through Photoshop's website.

So excited. I just read this article:http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/487513...4#.UDWd_47-v0c
and it gave me a fabulous idea for a gift for my stylish MIL. It's a book called Advanced Style of all these ladies showing off their fashion and giving tips who are 60 or over. Love it!!! And importantly, so will MIL. I can already see her putting in a mass order for her friends.

Hi everyone. Joining this thread. I don't have as many people to buy for anymore since we don't buy for siblings anymore and buy for our nieces and nephews til they are 21. (on my side only - DH's side never got into the gift exchange and they all live out of state). So, basically I have 1 niece who is 19, 2 Great-Nieces who are 5 and 1, My Dad and DH's Dad and then our immediate family of DH, DS13 and DD11. So, not a huge list so that just makes me buy more for our kids.

Seems the older they get the harder it gets to buy for them. They both already have I-pads, Phones, I-touches, Netbooks and gameing systems. So what I was going to do for this years big gift is get them both a small photo album (those cheapie ones that don't hold a ton of pics) and in each space where a photo is to go I am going to put in a gift card or cash. Trying to think of the different gift cards I could get and so far came up with the following as ideas:

DS13 - Champs Store, Maggie Moos (ice cream), Afton Alps (Ski/Snowboard Place), Super America, Subway, Arby's, Leann Chins, Target, I-tunes, Skyzone (Trampoline Jumping Place).

DD11 - Maggie Moos, Afton Alps, SA, Subway, Arbys, Leann Chins, Target, Itunes, Skyzone, Claires, Aeropostale, Michaels.

Not sure what ones I will get yet but at least they are things I can start picking up now. Also got DD her 1st Coach Purse at an outlet for $40. They will both get clothes and some other things as I like to have a tree full of gifts and DH and I really don't buy much for each other anymore either. So, will be following along and seeing what other suggestions you all might have.
