  • What are they each into? Gift cards to their favorite stores would be nice. Like, if one likes to read, get one to a books store, if one likes crafts, get one to a craft store, if one likest to shop, get one to her favorite clothing store. That way, it's the same gift, but different for each kid. :-)

  • When I was 14 I wanted clothes
    13-I think I wanted like passes to Eliches (otherwise known as 6 flags) for me and a couple friends for the day
    and 12 I think I wanted make up. That is the age I became "girlie."
    Maybe take them all shopping? I remember my aunt did that one time for me and I loved just spending time with her. Its something I will never forget...

  • I would get gift cards or find out what the girls are really into.

  • Gift cards may seem impersonal, but is the best gift for teenagers since their taste is always changing. Do they have Ipods? Maybe an Itunes gift card, a GC to their favorite clothing store, or some movie tickets.

  • what I get my preteen and teenage neices and nephews is a gift cert to the movies for 4 people and a gift cert to a nearby pizza place so they can treat 3 friends to the movies and for pizza afterward if they want. They are always asking me to make sure I haven't changed the gift on them because they all look forward to it even the younger ones look forward to it when they turn 10

  • At that age they love giftcards! I suggest: Claire's for the youngest, Old Navy for the middle, Loehmann's (if they are in your area) or American Apparel for the oldest. Or Target for everyone
