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
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.
