Default What do 12 year old girls like?

Hello! Calling out to all you mothers and grandmothers of 12 year old girls (I only have boys). A friend of mine, her daughter has had some health issues going on now for about 6 months and I would like to send her daughter a little care package to pick her up but I have no idea what 12 year old girls like. Anyone share? I am thinking I am going to fill a container (like a peanut butter jar or orange juice container that are clear ) so trying to think of items that would fit into that size container.

Any and all suggestions welcome! And thank you for your ideas!

Get a really big box and send her a 14 year old boy. That'll perk her right up.

LoL Jutta! Off the top of my head I'm thinking Hershey Kisses, or other small chocolates, in a separate little bag, lip gloss, lotion, ( think travel size), Blingy hair baubles, hair ribbons cool pens,(wal Mart, has fun small ones) small sketch pad, glitter type stickers, small nail polishes, the brighter the better, and mine like the goofy tattoo, washable junk LOL. Hope that gives you a few ideas. have fun! Hope she feels better soon.

Oh Jutta, you made me laugh out loud. For Scraphappily ; maybe a small, beginner cross stitch kit. A paperback book copy of "Little Princess" by Frances Hodgson Burnett. You can certainly tell by my suggestions I am Gramme, but sometimes the old things are very new to 12 year olds. She will be so delighted by your sweet, generous package. Blessings, Jeanne.

OK, I'll say right up front that I am a Stampin' Up! demo but I think the new This and That smash-style journal would be perfect for an almost teen. It is, however, bigger than a peanut butter jar.

Check with your demo to get more info.

Yes, Jutta, that was a good one.

If she has pierced ears, small stud earrings with hypoallergenic posts would probably be a hit. My 12 year old granddaughter loves new earrings!

You can even find cute ones at Walmart for little money. They don't have to be real gold or silver, just hypo-posts. Girls that age lose things very easily, lol. (Ask me how I know.)

Also, colored gel pens are always good for this age.

What a nice idea! There are so many great suggestion What about thread to make friendship bracelets? Does she have an iPod, iPad or iPhone? What about an iTunes card? My kids get a certain amount for iTunes each month and it is NEVER enough to get everything they want. A $10 would be a nice treat. Or a Kindle gift card.

I have a second cousin who is 13 and is really into making friendship bracelets. A girlfriend's niece about the same age likes origami projects.

Glad you have a Kohl's. They have great jewelry, etc. for teens.

I'm sure she will be thrilled to get your package.
