Dd is 12 today.

She has no presents to open so far because she doesn't seem to want anything other than her bedroom being re-decorated. I've managed to come up with a Zoella makeup bag (she already has one) & a nail varnish hmm

I'm taking her & a couple of friends to the cinema after school & then for somewhere to eat.

Dh has 'found' an IPod in his office he bought for her a few years ago...so she might have that.

My original intention was to take her shopping last Sat, but she started her periods instead & we had a TV day confused

Are you just looking for little bits for her to unwrap? Or would vouchers be OK?

How about:

Books
DVDs
Diary
Decorative bits for her room
Chocolates
Bubble Bath

Thank you, yes I guess so.

I bought her loads for Xmas, like lush which she likes looking at but not to use.

I guess some things to unwrap so she knows we love her !

Likes music but watches films on the TV...bit of an odd one, my girl...

She's actually asked me to tidy up for her..blush

Her birthday is today? and you are asking for help.... today?

Yes - as above - I've been through everything & other than her bedroom being redone, there's nothing she wants or needs.

Can you help with ideas or not ?! confused

Whenever I'm stuck for a birthday I do a "box" of small presents, so perhaps:

Bar of chocolate
Funky socks
Nail varnish (already bought!)
Quirky stationery
vouchers for something

Etc

Or things for her room:
Cushions
Picture frames
fairy lights
Nice blanket / throw

Assuming you know the colour scheme she has in mind!

New duvet set to match the new decoration.

New dressing gown and pjs.

Notice board or picture.

Thanks all, well I bought a selection of sweets & made them a goody bag + drink for the cinema trip & now bday tea.

I've got some ideas for our shopping trip if/when we go ! smile
