  • She is really big into cheerleading. She is on one of those extreme all-star teams. She loves clothes and boots but it's hard to pick clothes for her at her age.

  • One Direction lol. Seriously, my dd is 11 yo. She likes jewelry - not the little girl stuff, just nice costume (ex I'm gettin her a heart charm on a silver necklace from Target for $12). Nail polish - in colors I might not necessarily wear (lime green, glitter, etc). A 1d poster and tshirt. She also likes craft stuff - last year she was very into friendship bracelets and learning how to knit.
    She's also getting a phone, but that's kinda pricey. Although an iTunes or google play card would be appropriate if she already has a cell.

  • My dd is 9.5 and likes books, and only books :P for a cheerleader or sporty girl I would go with a gift card for somewhere she likes to get clothes or maybe crafty stuff that she would wear with her cheer leading uniform? Like make your own hairbands or something? :-/

  • Ugg boots. (expensive!) Alex and Ani bracelets (they collect them and wear them in stacks, about 30 bucks) and what missanc said. LOL

  • My 9 & 10 yos are getting Kindles from grandma & grandpa, they asked for books (so the kindles will be great), jewelry, games, crafty stuff, they both like fun pens/pencils and funky socks.

  • Monster High stuff is big here this year. The "must have" is the nail and tattoo bar. Another thing that mine want is a kit with a mannequin for making clothes (we're talking about doll clothes). A telescope would also go down well here.

  • Probaby any cute outfit that you pick out from Justice would be a winner.

  • My daughter is 12 and totally into the make-up & nailpolish thing. Dont forget the clothing & shoes. Although this year she asked for a gift card so she could buy herself a kindle....
