  • Seriously? I did ask her. She doesn't know. That's why I was asking for ideas.

  • If she doesn't have an idea, then she gets nothing. She is old enough to think about what she would like to do.

  • My daughter turned 14 in August; I took her and two friends downtown for the day. They wandered in and out of shops; took pictures of each other trying on sunglasses at Chanel; took more pictures of each other trying on the flashiest dresses that they could find at Loehmann's; etc. I took them out to lunch and bought them matching Al Capone (we live in Chicago) T-shirts.

    Teens definitely mini golf; the ones around here are closed until Spring.

  • You could tell her to invite a friend over and you could drop them off at the mall they can roam the mall, and buy whatever they like in within reason of course. lol. then they can have lunch in the mall somewhere. and when they ready to come home they can call you to come get them.

  • Sleep in with movies and board games. Fun snack foods and cake. Let them stay up all night if they want to!

  • My daughter just turned 15 and we rented a hotel room with a heated pool and she and her friends were able to swim, have pizza and junk food, and watch movies all night. I didn't have to do all the clean up and entertaining because they had fun just being at the hotel. The fact that the hotel served a free all you can eat breakfast buffet didn't hurt, either.
    Also, we always take our kids to a movie of their choice and dinner at a restaurant of their choice for their birthdays.
    Hope this helps.
