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!
