Dh gets an iPad everytime there's an upgrade from work, so we are fortunate enough to have a few. She's also got an old iPhone of mine, a kindle from PIL's. There are a few smaller things she wants but nothing that feels like a main present. Any ideas?

Mine is getting a Jack Wills hoody and a sewing machine.

I have arranged a 2 night trip to London in February half term, booked a nice hotel and got tickets for an event I know she will love.
Printed the details on a Christmas postcard from Moonpig.
She is 14.

Polaroid instax?

Mine's getting a colour printer. Not the most obvious present I admit, but it what she wanted!

Does she have long straight hair? What about one of those Babyliss Curl things where it sucks your hair into it? All my 12yo dd's friends are after those at the moment. They're around £120 though so not cheap.

Activity present?

Skiing/snowboarding lessons at indoor ski centre

Horse riding lessons

Guitar lessons?

A fun camera? From Lomography? Have a look at the Photographer's Gallery shop. Or a pin hole camera?

Sewing machines are fab! Dd has one and love it (my dd is 16)

Gald to hear it Yorkshire - I have bought her one with some trepidation (as sewing is not really my thing). You have however made me think that I should probably get some material for her for Christmas too!

My dd made herself,Prehaps her birthday you ought to get her some design patterns for her to follow and make her own things?
