What to buy a 14 year old girl

Does anyone have any ideas on what to get a 14 year old girl for Christmas?  I asked her and all she wants are gift cards and money.  I would like to get her something else though and nothing too expensive!  For example, she is NOT getting a laptop!

Earings, fun socks, drawning kit, movies she likes, tshirts with fun sayings, perfume, nail polish kit, (mine is getting) a big plush robe, school supplies, locker stuff if she has one, soft fuzzy blanket. Hope some of these are helpful :)

What about one of those loom bracelet kits or is she too old for crafty things?

my dd ( she is 14) is same way.... so I found something she doesn't RELIZE she wants lol. My dd loves coffee all of sudden. She loves going to star bucks or Mc d's any where she can get a coffee. Well I bought her a one cup coffee maker to save me money in buying coffee at shops for her lol ( no one else in my House drinks it) That will be her main gift.

Plus maybe you could do what I am doing with her gift card she will also get... I will share below...........

Have your dd go on Amazon.com and make a wish list!! Then you have physical items she wants for you to browse through. I did that with dd. SHE had a blast  pretend shopping and making her wish list kinda like she used to do to Santa on paper when young.

WELL Then I had an idea too I liked even better... Her amazon gift card I will give her I will hold on to. Instead I will make pretend amazon money equal each to a certain dollar amount and hide them. I am going to make a little scavenger hunt for her to find them christmas morning. SO when she opens her box all it will have in it is a Scavenger hunt map with clues & riddles.....! So when she finds all my fake amazon money once all found she will cash in with me for her gift card!

SO my 14 year old is happy and gets what she wants PLUS we make a memory of fun that will last long after the money is spent out and besides just handing her the card in a box!
