I am hoping to get some gift ideas for DD16. She has everything.... iPad mini, iPhone, Tv, blu ray palyer. Being the only child, only grand child, and first great.... She tends to be a little spoiled. Okay, if we are being honest, a lot spoiled. :indiffere Her birthday was in September, which makes this more difficult. She will get gift cards for books, some earrings, make up, etc for her stocking. I would like to find something, perhaps, out of the box. Any suggestions would be great! While she wouldn't care if there wasn't a pile under the tree, but I am hoping to find something.

 

Thanks!

I agree. My favorite gift from last year was concert tickets and a GC to the Richard Petty Driving School.

My dd12 has a younger brother and they are both spoiled thanks to my extended family.  She has everything under the sun so this year Im getting her cookinig classes because she loves cake boss, chopped, iron chef and all those shows.  I am really trying to focus more on giving experiences to everyone because we have too much stuff!!

What about some kind of chest, foot locker, etc. For memory stuff, start stocking up for college, or something of the sorts.

the new curling irons that make ringlet curls

makeup brushes

Starbucks gc

hair chalk

pretty little liars DVD

prom magazines

eyelash curler

phone case

iphone speakers.

 

Of course what she really wants is a car!!!

My DD will be 15 just before Christmas.  She has been dying for a DSLR camera.  I'm hoping to find a deal on the Canon T3-a bundle would be nice.  It is hard when they already have everything lol. 

 

I also agree with another poster, an experience gift is also great.  Concert tickets and let her take a friend or a ski trip etc.

How about  a Pandora bracelet that you could begin to add charms to?  My daughter loves hers.

For her birthday, we got her a day at the spa. She was over the moon! I looked into getting tickets to see Pink in concert, but it's on a Wednesday..... If she misses a day of school for something like that, she can't compete in the next swim meet... Off to look at her iPhone for other music ideas..... Thank you everyone! Keep the ideas coming!

Does she like cooking?  I got my daughter the cake pop maker from Kohls which also is a donut and cupcake maker.  I don't know about your daughter but mine goes threw headphones quickly so that is always a Christmas present.  This year I was thinking about wireless headphones because her cord is always tangled and it gets on my nerves, apparently it doesn't bother her though.  If there's anywhere that she has been bugging you to go, setting that up for her would be great also.  It seems that everyone's comments about experience gifts would be great, if she already has everything she would probably love that more.
