Any help would be massively appreciated. Budget is around £100 and I'd like to get at least 2 or 3 presents rather than one big one. Wanting ideas other than the usual make-up, perfume or vouchers. She's into photography, music and concerts and still lives at home with mum

Does she drive? What about a batch of starter driving lessons for circa £55?
And then some make up stuff on top?

Primary used to sell a three layer cosmetic hat box and I bought one of those for my DD and filled it with cosmetics she loved that. IKEA sell for £10 a gothic mirror which stands on her dressing table AND she loves that too! Believe or not, teenagers still love bits and bobs. at Xmas I still make up baskets filled with special shampoos, beauty essentials, shower gels etc that I know will be appreciated and used. Teenagers also seem to like photo frames that they can fill with photos of their friends and family and special times? For £100, you could go wild to be honest!

Thanks I am definitely thinking about a nice photo frame for her newly grown up bedroom and maybe a mirror too. I know that honestly she'd probably love little hampers of make up and stuff but she got loads last year and all her friends will probably do similar things so want something a bit different. I'm the only family on her dad's side and her two baby half brothers get spoilt so I like to try and make sure Christmas is special for her too

Does she have a good camera? Is she by any chance saving up for a sLR camera?

She's got a slr camera that her parents clubbed together to get her for her 18th last year and I'd rather not give her cash as she's quite likely to waste it. I'd definitely like to get her something photography related though so will have to maybe google some ideas

A tripod for her camera and subscription to photography magazine?

Thanks, magazine subscription will go down quite well I think and her mum's mentioned she'd like some interesting stuff to go on her bedroom walls so at least I've got something to get started on
