the right "age" gift for my niece

My Niece is turning 13 soon & its be awhile since I have had the chance to see her. I can't believe how time flys. I don't even know what to look for or where to begin since I raised 2 boys. Can anyone give me a couple of ideas! I would love to hear them!

  • depends on how much you want to spend. you can get her something she likes. see if she is a crazy teen for the jonas brothers. they are really in right now

    all kids like music so you can get her an ipod or a cool case if she already has one

  • I would do a gift card at a place she likes to shop...ask her mom. maybe aeropostal.

  • Teens usually always enjoy diaries. I like the gift card idea too but make sure it's at a place she likes to shop or you could just get her a card and give her some cash or maybe invite her out for a girls day on the town? GL

  • iTunes card, Borders GC, Starbucks GC, Movie GC-this is the best gift card because she is getting old enough to go with her friends. Or good old cash...I have never seen a kid be sad about cash as a gift.

  • as a teen I can honestly say I would HATE to get a diary (no offence) Id get her one of those gift cards she can use anywhere so your sure not to mess up!

  • You can't go wrong with a gift card, they get what they want and no one's feelings get hurt, because they get the right size and right color etc.

  • A gift card and the book Our Bodies Ourselves; I receive a copy for my 13th birthday and gave copies to my daughter and her close friends for theirs.

  • Definitely a gift card. Most malls have the Visa/Mastercard gift cards and they can use them at any store in the mall :-)
