    My middle daughter is 13. I'm getting her:

    -Laptop
    -$250 cash (to buy her own clothes; her style changes too much for me to guess!)
    -Make-up set
    -Headphones (she breaks these too much. Most I'm willing to pay are for some by SkullCandy)
    -Perfume/body lotion set
    -Wreck This Journal
    -Misc stocking stuffers (fuzzy socks, pajamas, scarf, gloves)

    She *really* wants the Samsung Galaxy III. That will run me $280. She either gets that or the laptop, but not both!

    I was at Walmart for the first time in ages today and came across a line by K & C Company for their smashbooks. Has anyone ever heard of them? And more importantly, is it something your girls like to do?

    I've finished shopping for my kid sister, but her birthday is in Jan. I'm thinking Wicked tickets, and possibly a smashbook if it's something she'd actually like. It looks like something I would like, scrapbooking without the perfection, but I'm just curious on if any of you have a teenager who likes it.

    DD will be 14 in Dec so I;m always lost what to get her

    DD doesnt wear make and hopefully stays natural for another 1-2 years. I do plan on getting her a gift cert to get her eyebrows waxed. I told her when she turns 14 she can start waxing her brows if needed and its time-lol!Gift cert for pedi .She like luxury waffers(waffer sticks with chocolate in the middle) and mentioned those would be a great stocking stuffer-lol!

    The other day she was looking at some cute hello kitty earphones so the nextday I went back and bought those.

    So, are any of your DD14's into painting their nails? MY DD is and I would like to purchase her some more colors. Is there a brand that's better than others? She mentioned OPI, but that's kind of pricey - $10.00 a bottle. I noticed that there are other brands that say "by OPI", is that the same quality?

    I tend to pick up the sets at the drugstore for my girls. They don't need quality polish. At this age it's only going on for a day or two before they want to switch it out.

    Last year or the year before I managed to pick up sets of around 10 colors for just a few dollars at CVS on their black friday sales.

    I haven't looked around this year as my DD could probably start a nail salon with all the bottles she has at them moment! LOL But I would look at the CVS and Walgreens back friday ads for deals on nail polish sets.

    I agree they don't need the pricy nail polishes. I buy my dd who is going to be 5 nail polish at 5 below or through Avon

    I have DD 15.
    I used to do very well at surprising her with things but her likes and wants have gotten pretty specific so it's different the last year or so.

    So far..
    Sims Pets
    Sims ..can't remember..it's an expansion though
    Coach Poppy Blossom perfume

    Last year she LOVED that I bought her a mini photo album and put in a gift card for every month of the year. I'll do a different presentation this year, but it will be the same idea. Gift Cards for food places near her school, to have her hair done, nail salon, clothing stores , iTunes , TicketMaster for concerts etc.

    She's an avid reader and I'd love to get her an Ereader but she has never shown any interest so I'll get her a few books, some clothes, make up.
    Nothing too exciting but this is what she wants and likes.

    Both of my girls love painting their nails, we have nail art stickers, we have nail dotting tools, we have stencils.....lol And we use (almost exclusively) Zoya nail polish. $8 a bottle, only available online but IMO it's well worth it, doesn't have all the nasty chemicals that a lot of polishes do and I never buy without a code of some kind so I can get some really great deals. We usually have our nails done with 1 color for at least a week so I feel Zoya is worth it.

    Oh for the OPI lovers... check Sephora. Some (not all) of their colours were as low as 3.00 a bottle last week when I looked:thumbsup2
