Depending on your skills you can make quilts in their favorite colors, or do no sew blankets. The 12 year old might like a cd curtain. If you''re familiar with the old beaded curtains it looks like that except its made of old cd's. I dont have a link to it anymore but you could probably google it. It looks really cute and funky. Making or buying posters for their rooms that can be framed are always good.. Have them give you ideas and maybe you could paint a mural on the wall. If you're like me and can't' really draw a straight line, maybe you could borrow an overhead projector and place a picture on it so it will show up on the wall and then you could trace it and then fill it in.
