So dd has no idea what she wants for Christmas. She's got a laptop, iPod a kindle fire and a cheap phone

I have around £75 to spend and would to get something she'll love but I have no ideas! Any help greatly appreciated

A giant bean bag/floor cushion? My 11 yo loves hers and lounges around on it reading and it can be used outside in the summer.

I think she probably would love that, but room on her floor is limited so not sure where it would fit

Thanks for the idea though, I will check it out.

What's her style? I've got mine a pair of patent DMs which she will love. Vans? Nikes? Gift box from Lush? Back-pack or satchel?

She has a leather satchel for school and shiny black patent dms that she got for her birthday a couple of months ago

She doesn't use make up, isn't into gaming, and still likes the occasional play with her sylvanian families.

A camera, or one of those Fuji instant cameras?

Dd is getting a Fuji Instax camera, blue tooth speaker, Kawai box subscription. Her GPs are giving her a 'grown up' watch.

Ice watch
Camera - either digital or instant (my 12.5 year old dd loves her instant camera and this year I have bought her some film for it, you can get different designs)
Something for her room - nice lamp, cushions, fur rug, duvet cover
Lava lamp
Would you consider getting her a new phone?
Kipling bag - these are really in at my dd's school

I have been thinking about getting my Dd (12) an instax camera or a sewing machine. Really can't decide which would be best. How have people found the instax camera? The cost of film does put me off a little.

Ikea sewing machine is good.

Hoodies, trainers, dvds, bored games, day out, concert tickets,

We are getting (shared) netball post and ball because both dd play in team. Is there anything outdoorsy/sporty which she might like?

If she likes to still play with some of her younger toys perhaps she would enjoy an animation kit. You can get them with the cameras and software and she could put the sylvanian families in and act them out to make videos. You can use almost anything in front of them so it would grow with her, including drawings,lego, even her!
Amazon and wicked uncle have a good selection.

Dd (12) is getting a Fuji instax camera and case, and then bedding and bits and pieces - hoodie, make up, cushion etc.

Whyamihere Sat 12-Dec-15 08:24:47

I bought dd the Fuji instead camera last year as a surprise gift, she has said it is the best thing I'be ever bought her!! The film is quite expensive but dd is really good with it and uses it mostly for sleepovers or holiday.

This year I've got her a graphic pad for her laptop, she can use it for drawing etc, so hopefully she will like it.

Audible membership.

Does she like YouTube? A lot of fan memorabilia like hoodies, books etc.
In Etsy there are a few people doing fan prints of popular YouTubers like Dan and Phil.

My daughter will get an Iou for a phone case. Her taste is so specific I will never be able to choose the "right one". She's also getting a voucher for Costa which is half way between home and school, emoji clothes from Primark, stationery, more emoji pillows and American sweets.

I've got mine a Canon Selphy so she can print photos wirelessly from her phone. Also a candy floss machine, kawaii box subscription, Stitch stuff, Smiggle stuff and tons of books and sweets.
