Birthday gift ideas for a 12 year old girl?

My nieces birthday is this week. I am getting her a detangling brush because her hair neeeeeeds one. But otherwise I am not sure what else to get her?

  • Get her some additional hair accessories. Headbands are very popular right now. A gift certificate to Claire's, Justice, etc...

  • Give the gift of shopping... A gift certificate to a well liked store!! Even my 10 yr old lives to get those!

  • The 12 year old girls I know are into hair stuff, earrings, wrist bands, bright colored camisoles, tank tops, flip flops

  • Buying a gift because you think she needs it might come off as rude or insulting. That said I say go ahead and send the brush but also send things like hairbands, headbands, barrettes etc. and a gift card. That way it seems more like a theme "hair items" and less of a "your hair is always a mess and you need to brush it more".

  • I usually get a gift card to Forever 21 or Macy's. By 12 my DD had outgrown Justice's style and bright colors.
