Help with Giving Tree present 14yo girl.

My local Starbucks has well, Giving Candy Canes. They are for teen girls, I thought this was great little ones are so cute we naturally give there but teenage girls

So what do you get a 14yo girl? I have no sizes so clothes out. They just list age, nothing else. She is from a town I know is very low on the socio-economic scale.

Do you go practical? Or something you know she would never get otherwise?
They say 25 limit but....oh rules were meant(not huge broken) mayeb a little broken.

That's tough since you don't have sizes! My DD15 loves make-up, purses, I-tunes gift cards, anything from bath and body works, fuzzy socks.

My DD also loves gum(I think she must go to school and sell it)

I'll keep thinking, but those are off the top of my head! Good luck, my sil and I did one of these type of things for a 6 year old boy and we had fun with it!

My 13-year old loves fuzzy socks (or crazy socks of any kind!), jewelry from aeropostale, nice lip gloss, nail polish, pillow pets (is this normal? Lol!), and scarfs.

My teen has an android, so a GooglePlay card instead of iTunes would be for her. So I would avoid that now unless you had more info.

If you want to do gift cards make them generic like Walmart, Barnes and Noble, etc...

I am a fan of the "gift basket" and would make a gift basket like for example "movie night".

Include a movie, candy, gift card to the movies, microwave popcorn, or whatever.

If you do a "bath" gift basket you can have hand soaps, perfumes, etc..

"Clothes basket" with hat, scarf, gloves, gift card to Walmart or other local clothing store near you. My 21yodd wears the " crazy socks".

I have a 13 year old and she likes make up and perfume and stuff from Claires. She likes music so maybe an i-tunes gift card and a Claires gift card and a basket of goodies like bubble bath and nail polish etc. Maybe add some chocolates etc.

I have a dd14. I agree with all of the above suggestions. In fact, the previous posters have pretty much listed everything dd is getting. But, I would not give an iTunes or other gift card that would require electronics. My two teens have also asked for gift certificates to take out food places like Starbucks so that they can buy lunch or a snack after school.

I agree on the food gift card idea. Teens love to go out.

My 15 year old is also way too into gum. It's all she ever asks for- and I too think she must be selling it because she is never chewing it in front of me?

A purse would be a hit I would guess. My daughter can't have enough backpacks either. The cuter the better- right now the favorite is a furry animal print one from Jansport.

We did a movie basket. Two tickets to the movies and $20 concession card. I know it was a bit over the limit but snacks are so expensive. I would avoid itunes or google play because if they don't have a phone/computer those are pretty useless.

Why only teen girls?

I like the idea of a special tree for teens, since they tend to get overlooked at other holiday giving trees and such...but don't teen boys need stuff too?

I just took my troop of 13 yo girl scouts shopping for a 14yo foster child (girl) today. Now granted, we got her sizes, a list of 3 wish list items, and the troop had $100 to spend (cookie $!)

We knew she wanted a purse, gift card, and perfume. We did all our shopping at Target. Beyond that, our 13 yo girls decided what to add.

They were insistent about "baby lips" lipgloss (maybeline), ($5/2pk) pajama pants, long crazy socks. The perfume was Juicy Couture ($12), although that taylor swift perfume almost won. Also "texting gloves" ($3) a zebra-spriped throw ($10) nail polish (bright purple + glitter) Gift card was to the movie theater.
