I haven't a clue, I have been living in a boy only zone for too long! Help! I forgot and it's my niece's birthday on Monday. I only just remembered when I came up to bed.

You have my sympathies! My DD is 13 and a nightmare to buy for!

Depending on how much you want to spend, and based on what my DD wanted for Xmas, my suggestions are:

Hoody from Hollister (or anything from Hollister really!)
ITunes voucher
One of those large cookie cakes from Millies Cookies
Gloves that can be used with a smartphone
Earphones with built in headphones
Cotton PJs

Good luck!

Anything clothey- Hollister, Abercrombie, Aeropostale, River Island are favourites. Or a gift voucher to one of those shops!
Nice headphones and earphones.
Hair chalks were a real hit for my 13yo DSis.

Phone case?
H&M stuff
Amazon voucher
Anything Jack Wills too

Mine would ask for chocolate, money, iTunes, New Look or River Island vouchers. If she's into make up, a Boots voucher might go down well. One thing my daughter got recently which she likes was a ladybird which un-does and flattens to a small pillow/cushion. Think you can get different animal types on Amazon - guess they are £10-15.

Mine would hate anything from jack willis/holister etc

Makeup goes down well -especially black eyeliner
Vouchers to get her hair done, cinema vouchers etc

Cinema vouchers, nail polish, onesie, poster of favourite band/TV show, funky phone case (if you know which type she has)

Thank you, that's great. I've noticed a bit of a drift towards Hollister lately, she has changed schools and she was all arty and floaty before so it came as a shock. I think I'll get her a selection from your suggestions, and then at least one of them should please her.

Superdry do nice t shirts and hoodies, plastic make-up bags in there for £10 are good for gifts smile

Mine (12 and 1/2) loves to have something she can spend - so Amazon voucher would be great, but, tbh, vouchers for a particular shop are a pain in the bum for families like us who tend to do their utmost to avoid "going shopping".
Cinema Voucher's a good idea.
At Christmas she wanted nail varnish pens
She'd like a football, but I'm not sure all 13 yr old dds would wink

Books. Look at the A Mighty Girl website. It has a fantastic selection of great books for all ages.

I'm thinking, keep going, I will need you lot again next xmas! grin Thanks for the books website, she likes reading. I ended up with a folding ladybird cushion and nailvarnish pens, but I need to have a look into her favourite clothes retailers and see if they do vouchers. She has some of the above things already.
