So far we have a request for a small pitcher plant . . . confused However I suspect something a little more substantial would be gratefully received on Xmas day grin

IsItGinTimeYet Wed 12-Oct-16 08:59:37

Male or female? So far DS has mentioned a Scalextric set and clothes! fconfused

popmimiboo Wed 12-Oct-16 09:45:00

Mine wants a laptop. Which leaves little spare cash for extras but she'll probably get clothes, cosmetics and stationary from her grandparents.

Sushiqueen Wed 12-Oct-16 13:43:50

Mine wants iTunes vouchers, money and earrings (she recently got her ears pierced).
Apparently she doesn't need to tell me what she wants as I always seem to know (probably because she normally drops hints for months beforehand - but not this year!!)

It's DD's 14th birthday next week, and her wish list included a very long list of expensive brand make-up, a portable record-player (one of the little retro-looking pastel-coloured ones which probably sound very tinny but look cool) and some vinyl to play on it, art materials, various DVDs, lots of books/manga, and a tartan scarf, preferably from the Doc Marten shop.

At the same age DS was very hard to buy for, and he could only ever come up with a few CDs or DVDs he wanted, or sometimes an upgrade to his iPod or similar. I think that might have been the year I gave him a bass guitar, but the band he and his friends formed didn't last very long...

MoonfaceAndSilky Wed 12-Oct-16 13:56:31

So far I have the new maze runner book, on the list.

Sadik Wed 12-Oct-16 17:05:59

DD, but I reckon (make-up apart on the whole) there's not much difference in wants at this age.

She doesn't wear make-up, only listens to music via youtube - clothes are a possible but they have to be the right clothes grin (and sadly she doesn't like specific brands, which would make it easier if pricey!).

We have a lego NXT robotics set which is actually mine blush but I suspect may come out again getting into autumn, so some extra bits & pieces for that might be nice stocking fillers, it's all ebay 2nd hand so cheap enough.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 12-Oct-16 20:36:47

My 14yo DD (not exhaustive) includes:

Make-Up (Kat Von D / Urban Decay/ Tarte. )
Office Chelsea Boots
Earrings
New piercing
Lush products
Gift Voucher (TopShop/ Victoria Secret Pink)
Trip to London to pootle round shops and have naice tea out fgrin

Sadik Wed 12-Oct-16 21:06:55

I would like the naice tea, 70 grin The Doc Marten shop looks very desirable, exexpat - I've been pondering a pair of DMs, just need to decide whether dd's feet not havingt grown for 2.5 years means it's safe to buy expensive footwear, or whether instead it means they're bound to grow in the next few months!

exexpat Wed 12-Oct-16 22:52:51

DD got her first pair of DM boots about this time last year - she hit size 7 in junior school and hadn't grown since, so I thought the investment was worth it. I ended up getting myself my first pair of DM shoes in about 25 years too...

Sadik Thu 13-Oct-16 20:48:02

She's currently only a size 3, so I reckon they might still grow (and most likely about 2 weeks after an expensive shoe purchase . . .).

I have my 13 yr old DDs list in front of me. It consists of Zoella body stuff, Dan & Phil books, Dan & Phil merchandise, David & Goliath hoodies & t shirts & the Miranda DVD box set.
She already has a I Phone/I Pad etc, shes not a girly girl, loves to read & study & play in the school/council band.

skippy67 Fri 14-Oct-16 15:39:12

My 15yo has asked for black Timberland boots and "surprises"

dementedma Sat 15-Oct-16 15:33:36

14 year old Ds is getting:
Gaming keyboard
Gaming mouse
X box games
Football boots
Sidemen goody
Bits and pieces.

DD (13) is getting a new iPhone. She's currently on my old one, and I'm upgrading soon, so she's asked if she could have my current one for Christmas. However, when we looked at contracts, if we pay most up front, it's not that much more to get her her own phone, so we're getting her that, and DD2 will have my current phone.

That will probably be her only decent present though. We got her tickets to see the gymnastics next year and then she'll have bits. She's not into clothes or makeup or music or anything else teenagers normally like to waste their money on, so I think it'll be just a few big presents from us this year.

RockinHippy Sat 15-Oct-16 16:08:58

This is my 14yo DDs very recent birthday list...

Sí - by gorgeio armarni
Urban Decay - naked 2 palette
Sims 4 game packs
Nose pericing😉😉🙏🏻
Urban decay all nighter sitting spray
Calvin Klein bras and knick knicks
Benefit porefessinal
Real techniques eye brushes
New apple earphones (the new design ones)
Liz earle cleanse and polish
Nice pjs

AguasMil Sat 15-Oct-16 16:21:15

My 14 year old DD wants;

Calvin Klein Knickers
Black Timbaland boots
Victoria's secret knickers
Jack Wills hoodie
Kylie Jenner lip kit
Mac lipstick
Items from Topshop
Pandora charms
Adidas superstars
two faced foundation
Anastasia Beverley Hills dip brow

But she'll actually be getting sweet FA if she doesn't sort her attitude out! wink

Sadik Sat 15-Oct-16 19:40:30

DD has yet to be converted to the glories of nice undies - but she definitely needs some new pjs (even if she wouldn't admit it), so I can add some cosy pjs & furry socks to my list.

I wish they sold a box set of all the Bake-off series on DVD, but sadly (why? surely it's an obvious marketing opportunity?) such a thing doesn't seem to exist. I might get her series 3 (she started watching at series 4) on amazon download, but it's not really so easy to wrap!

Thatwaslulu Sat 15-Oct-16 19:43:29

My 16yo son wants a camera (he's doing photography A Level) and a Nandos voucher. Last year he asked for a sleeping bag, a bergen and some army boots for cadets. I expect he will be asking for aftershave nearer to the day too, as he hasn't got very much left, but he has a little part time job so he may be buying his own.

RockinHippy Sat 15-Oct-16 23:46:39

Sadik I found my DD a pack of black Bamboo socks on Amazon, she absolutely loves them & reckons that they are the softest, most comfortable socks she has ever owned

Meadows76 Sat 15-Oct-16 23:50:13

Trainers, trainers and more trainers

MistressMolecules Sat 15-Oct-16 23:55:16

Mine is getting bath bomb making sets, perfume making sets and things like that and she wants goth clothes (I have been emailed a list) or these weird creepy Japanese doll things that she likes. She will also get her Guinness WR and Ripleys annuals that she gets every year! My dd1 has rather unusual tastes!

Dafadddu Sun 16-Oct-16 13:38:54

My 14 yr old DD is getting:

Hairdryer, JD vouchers, sports direct voucher, a football, Jack Wills tin from Boots filled with wash things, new look voucher, Costa voucher, Adidas hoodie, headphones and charger for phone (cheap ones), trainers.

No make up as she has never worn it

No biggie gift this year.

Sadik Sun 16-Oct-16 18:33:06

RockinHippy dd loves bamboo socks, but also those really super fuzzy ones that come in the shops at Christmas.

I think at this age unless they have a specific 'big' want like a phone, small things are the way forwards. I've just seen there's a new Dark Eden book out so I'll add that to my list. Stocking will be socks, some Faith in nature shower gel, that sort of thing.

There is one Cyberdog hoodie I know she'd really like but sadly it's totally out of stock in all sizes black, which is the colour she wants, so I suspect it's on the way to being dropped.
