The girls of that age who I buy for are getting makeup palettes and brushes from Mecca.

Last year, I got them whatever was personalised at Myer (this year it’s Toblerone) and Sportsgirl gift vouchers.

My 15.5yo likes receiving money because she loves going shopping for clothes.

Other than that, we went window shopping today and she started writing a Christmas list... jewellery, lots of jewellery, Glasshouse candles, bed linen and cushions, essential oil diffuser (our one's ugly apparently), shoes (like sporty/casual shoes- nike's, vans etc), decor for her bedroom, nailpolishes, clothes etc.

Problem is her style is so unpredictable I'd find it so hard to successfully choose something for her! So I'm glad she's writing me a list!

Thanks for all your help. She doesn’t swim has a lot of art stuff has Fitbit versa already. Doesn’t have an iPhone can you use AirPods with other phones? Plus i would b scared she would lose them. She does like clothes shopping so might get her vouchers for that.

Buy a nice wallet and load it with some gift vouchers - eg clothes, movies, iTunes, food etc

DD15 and DSD16 are both getting money for Christmas.  They'll both still get their Christmas Eve PJs and something small to open on Christmas Day but last year they both wanted money for the Boxing Day Sales and loved it.  It was also a great lesson in the value of money when they were physically paying for purchases, so we'll be doing this again this year. DS15 wants in this year as well.

My DD is 14 and she has no idea what she wants other than clothes.

 

I get her a wall calender every year so this year I thought I'd do something abit more special, I got all her friends to send me pics of them all and I made her a calender, she's going to love it.

I'll get her Pj's, clothes, makeup.

DH got given 5 really good ones last year, so everyone got one which is good for parties as they all synchronise.

DD16 wanted a skateboard and gear, but her sister bought it for her last week.

So she has asked for a nice bookshelf and more books or vouchers. She is now looking at becoming a librarian, because books will disappear one day and she hates that thought. 
She got a tv that is wifi enabled for her birthday, so not much else she needs.

She is not into makeup or clothes.
