Anyone want to share their gift ideas for their tween?

IMO at around age nine gifts ideas begin to get more challenging. Anyone want to share what you are getting for your tween?

  • I bought my neice who is that age a Project Runway fashion projector, and I bought a basketball goal that hangs on the door for my 10 year old nephew. My daughter, who is 13, wants a digital camera, or an electric piano keyboard, or a laptop computer, or computer or wii games, or a thing called Ezyroller (some sort of scooter type thing); she also likes fashion accessories and stuff like nail polish and scented lotion.

  • My nine year old is a coin collector, so we are focusing gifts in that direction. Legos are also a big hit around here with my 8 &9 yrs olds.

  • I have a little fashion plate on my hands (DD - 12) so she's getting the Project Runway kits, a curling iron/crimper, a lighted makeup mirror, charms for her pandora bracelet, maybe some light makeup like lipgloss or pressed powder...that sort of thing.

  • My DD is 10 and her Christmas list includes: Money, giftcards, DSI, games, the new Bop It game, clothes, books, arts and crafts stuff. She loves jewelry but is always losing it so I bought her a wooden jewelry box that she can paint and decorate as she likes, as well as some wooden picture frames from Michael's I think she also mentioned some dolls called Liv dolls and Moxie dolls??

  • My dd is 9 and asked for an easy bake oven,a sewing machine(she is not getting),A nintendo DSi,some DVDs,santa buddies,the new barbie movie,american girl books and things,canvas for her oil paints. We are getting her an easel too. I don't know why but I can't think of anything else. She has recently gotten into the fashion designer stuff. Her bff has all that stuff and they want to design and make clothes,purses and jewlery.
