12 year dd tween. Any suggestions for Christmas?

She HATES receiving clothes as gifts.
She already has an iPod, computer, games, cell phone, etc.
We are giving an iTunes card but that's all I can come up with so far.
I ask her what she wants and she says "I don't know." Hmmmm.
Any suggestions?

  • She has the wii but is more in to the iPod gaming right now. That's basically all she wants is games but I can't just give her games. That's the big issue with me. This is such a hard age to buy for.
    Thank you for your response!
    Take care!

  • Her dad gave her his old camera and she won't ride rides at the amusement park. Great ideas though:-)
    Thank you!

  • Go pretend shopping for yourself and while there go in girls section and see what sparks her interest and keep that in mind.  Just have a mother and daughter time while window shopping.  GL

  • It's a tough age! I know. A kitten or puppy? Gerbil or fish? Uggs? Ski lift tickets? Movie tickets?

  • IS she into make up? One of those make up holders (caboodles?) that organize all her stuff.
    How about a new bedding set? Motorized scooter, new bike, Lava lamp, or a cool lamp that is like a strobe light? I got dd one of those last xmas(she was 6 1/2) it is realy cool it has lights and colors that go all over her room. Or one of those fancy table top water fountains that look like a little landscape, they are neat.
    Bean bag chair for lounging...another great gift idea is a box of little things, like fancy shampoo(for her hair type) deoderant, hairspray, facewash, magazines, gum, just girly stuff for taking care of herself.
    Another idea is something like, an ice cream maker, or popcorn machine. That way she can do it herself! yum!

  • Nail polish, Makeup, things to decorate her room with. My tweens love gift certificate's to the movie theater or an ice cream shoppe.
