    Default Gifts for 17 & 14 y.o. girls

    My father is sponsoring a family for Christmas, but has asked me to do

    the shopping. There are two children, girls ages 17 and 14. I don't

    know much about what kids like after about age 5, so I'm lost! If

    these are the only gifts these kids will receive, I'd really like them

    to be something they'll enjoy.



    The agency recommends the following breakdown, per child:

    $20 - clothing item

    $20 - toy (or teenage equivalent!)

    $10 - school supplies



    Both parents are to get a $20 practical gift too. I'm thinking about

    fleece pullovers for them (we're in New England).



    Any ideas about what to get the girls? Other than makeup, what are

    teenage girls into these days?



    Thanks,

    Suzanne

    I would get them Walmart gift cards so they can get what they want/need.

    Walmart has cheap CD players, like walkman's, for around $15. That

    would make a great gift, and add in something like fun bubble bath,

    lip glosses, etc.

    There is a CD out called NOW 28 (I think thats the right number) It's

    a compilation of all the hottest top songs right now. I've seen them

    at wal-mart for under $10. That's what my brothers (of the same age

    as those girls) asked for.

    Hope that helps a little.

    Merry Christmas!

    It's funny, I find it so much easier shopping for the girls. Here are some suggestions from my teenager....

    Besides make-up, they love purses, costume jewelry, shoes (if you know size), hair accessories, a blow dryer, gift basket of hair care products.
    If they have a dvd player.. movies... Highschool Musical 1 or 2 orHairspray. Music..... Jonas Brothers, Fallout Boys. New sheets (cool teen stuff) or curtains, throw pillows with cute sayings.

    I hope that helps you a little.

    Mery Christmas!

    My daughter is 13 and LOVES claires...(jewelry store) every mall I have been on the west coast has one..I am assuming they are everywhere...well they are always running 10 items for $5...I got my daughter $15 worth of stuff...Necklaces, earings, cell phone covers etc. so now when she fixes up an outfit..she can go through the misc box and find new jewelry for it...The kids think she "shops" all the time cuz she has lots of "new" jewelry all the time.. Accessories help make a few outfits look different which is "important" to teenage girls..LOL we keep a gift box at the house also and we stock up on stuff from Claires....if they dont have the sale..I woudl get a gift cert to Claires...they can find alot for a little.

    Yes, my 14 yr old also loves Claire's as do her friends who range in age up to 17. You are correct, they must be across the US if you have them on the West Coast..... we're in FL and have not only Claire's but also a store named Ice, which is owned by the same company and sells most of the same things @ the same prices.

    I personally think that the $10 for school supplies should be

    forgotten about at this point. By this time of year, most kids have

    what they need, unless it is a one time deal and there would be no

    way of knowing specifically what would be needed for later in the

    year projects.



    My suggestions would be an inexpensive hair straightener (they are so

    handy for all hair types), a nice coat if you can find one on

    clearance that is in style, snuggly boots like the tan ones with

    white fur inside, a nice hat and scarf, a few different "layering"

    tees in different styles and colors, slipper socks (those really soft

    ones), journals, I personally would also see a gift basket of Aussie

    shampoo/conditioner and other hair stuff from that line going over

    really well also.



    I would stay away from makeup since it is such a specific thing to

    get the right colors to match girls you do not know.
