I bought my dd a combination dry erase board and magnet board along with dry erase crayons and markers and funky magnets.

We also love Sculpey clay. They have a sampler color kit on amazon.

My DD9 has the Memorex MKS-SS1 SingStand Home Karaoke System (You can look it up on Amazon.) She LOVES it!!! It does NOT show the words to the songs, nor does it require a karaoke CD. You can plug your MP3 or iPod into it and sing away, or, if you can use it as *just* a microphone. DD is a rockstar in her own mind. She got this last year for Xmas and uses it almost every day!!!

This year she is asking for an iPod Touch, a lap desk (Pottery Barn Teen has some great ones) and one of those backrest pillows for her bed. Oh! And she wants a down blanket.

I love reading this thread! I've gotten some great ideas!!!

My DD is 9 almost 10 and in 4th Grade! She loves duct tape and sculpey (or any polymer) products. I am a scrapbooker and stamper so she is pretty crafty! She looks up tutorials on You tube and then makes them! I highly reccomend either or both!

She told me she loves all things sticky!!! This includes clear contact paper, sticky dots (Zots), duct tape and pretty much any tape product! She loves to play school while face timing her friends! Last year I made her up a big box of teacher type things, like posters, sticky notes, pens, pencils, tape, stapler etc. She had a blast with it!

I hope this helps, I am looking for new ideas for this year too! She loves Abercrombie (because of big sis!), has access to an Ipad, my Iphone and a Kindle Fire. She much prefers the Apple products because of the camera feature!

My DD10 and her friends are all about the rubber band bracelets (not the silly bandz, but ones you make yourself). We haven't bought the kit yet and DD is at school (so I can't ask her now), but I think it is this:

http://www.amazon.com/Rainbow-Loom-T...s=twistz+bandz

DD has a couple of friends who have given her bracelets that they made, and she wants her own kit. We are also buying a kit for a birthday party in a couple of weeks.

The book has you do odd things like drive over it, smear your dinner onto a page, tape things that are white onto a page, break the binding, draw something ugly. Maybe because the concept is destroying the journal they wanted to suggest it for adults only.

My 10 year old dd has suddenly become interested in smelling good. I was thinking about buying her some nice smelling soaps.

I'm not sure which brands would be good. We have a Crabtree and Evelyn here so that's where I was leaning. Maybe bath and body?

Found another idea for my DD, so thought I'd share - the big thing in her middle school right now is to wear mismatched socks with everything.

Little Mismatched has 40% off with free shipping through October 7th with DISCOVER40(no minimum order and it works on sale items)
They have really cute Disney items and accessories too (I personally want the Mickey Mouse reversible drawstring bag for myself)

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

For a 10 year old I'd go to Bath and Body Works. They have some really fun scents, perfect for young girls.


I buy Crabtree and Evelyn for my grandmother

For the crafty kids, I love to look at Michaels for ideas. Calligraphy set, shrinky dinks kit, paints or pastel chalk and art paper, sculpey clay and a book on making beads. Tie-dye kit and t-shirts to have a fun day with friends.

Okay I went and put some gifts on layaway today and while at Walmart back in the craft area they had Smash Books very neat idea from what ive read online similar to Wreck this Journal books. I was strickly doing my layaway for bigger items but there was a whole endcap with 'accessory' type add ones for smashbooks the books themselves were like $12.97 add ons were $1 and up it could be a journal, scrapbook, diary, or whatever fancies your DD im going back to get 2 books with add ons for DD10 and DD8 i think its something they both would enjoy heres their site http://kandcompany.eksuccessbrands.c...FUid4AodEl4AsQ
