I need gift ideas for my daughter !!!!

I am worlds worst shopper......my daughter will be 13 in March. She isn't really girly, girl but she is interested in a little bit of girly stuff. She doesn't wear makeup or spend hours on her hair, etc. She doesn't really have a hobby. She's really kind of young for her age, if that makes any sense. Like she still enjoys baby dolls. I got her some fingernail polish and a really cute pajama set already and there I'm stumped. Any suggestions would be great. She asked for an iPod, but I think that's going to be too expensive. It's like well, do you want 1 present = iPod or do you want a few presents? I dont' think she would listen to it anyway.

  • I am the OP, thanks for the ideas, whoever suggested the MP3 player...she has one and I have never seen her use it one time. That's why I said she would likely not use the iPod she has asked for. She has a nintendo DS, she plays an old gameboy more than the DS. She does like to help cook...isn't there a Paula Dean kids cook book? My only concern with that...I know the food probably tastes out of this world..but I try to keep it healthy so does anyone have one already and know what type stuff is in it? If it involves butter, cream,bread or pasta..it's outlawed in our house! LOL

  • Does she like to read? Maybe get her a few books. Are there any movies she likes? Maybe some DVDs?
