What should you get a 12 year old girl for her birthday?

Not only big things, things her friends can get her.

Report as

Friends-gift cards to her favorite stores, earings, something for a hobby she likes to do(ex. if she's an artist paint)
Big Gifts a pet(if she wants one and you are ready for one!!), a phone, i-pod, Uggs

If she doesn't already, an iphone or ipad. The iPad might be expensive and useless to many people but the whole my family can use it and it's like a computer. My dad never wanted me to get an iPad but now he is the one that uses it the most by laying in bed while checking the game score.

Seriously. They are mad expensive! You should get her a nice CD, books (harry potter) or money. I ended up with 70 pounds on my birthday. I am 12 so I would not want any apple things or any electronics. Apple products are crap. I just hate them. Trust me, there are many other phones that are better that iphones and are cheaper.

You should get her the Christy Miller series, whether or not she likes to read. I have a lot of friends that LOVE those books and they are perfect for 11+ girls! A lot of my friends dont even like to read at all but they TOTALLY LOVED THOSE BOOKS!!! if you get them from Barnes and nobles website they have colored writing but not from anywhere else although its rly expensive from Barnes and nobles. but those are GREAT books i guarantee that she will LOVE them!!!!!! seriously i do cuz those books are totally awesome. Please consider this!!! oh, and about the twilight and hunger games, all of my friends that read those immediately changed from team Edward or team Jacob (whichever one they were) to team TODDDDDD!!!!! He is the main guy character. He is soooooooooo fall-in-lovavle, i have yet to meet or hear of anybody that read the Christy miller series that did not fall head over heels in love with Todd although he is fictional.

What is she interested in? Ask her parents or that knows her well. If you STILL don't know what to get her, ask her yourself. If you want her present to be a surprise, get her a gift card. If you are not sure where the gift card should be from, do it for a clothing store you know she likes, or for something that sells a variety of things (for example: Walmart? )

I remember turning twelve and I have suggestions

Sport stuff Bikes, scooters, tennis rackets and tennis balls
Electronics Phone, iPod, iPad, and laptop
Clothes. See what colours she likes and what suits her. Then find some age appropriate clothes
Jewelry and Makeup
Books. If she likes adventure, the hunger games is a great option. Make sure you buy her the whole set!

look guys i'm a 12 year old myself i will be turning 13 in about 2 weeks. as much as i love to read getting a book probably wouldn't be the most exciting thing to receive, with the exception... if she really loves a series such as Twilight and so on. i know i really want an iPhone but if that's too expensive maybe makeup, nail stuff, giftcards to favorite clothing stores, or maybe even a phone, iPod case. i hope this helped another good idea no present and a BIG party :)

im 12 and i think that she would want:
a phone (if she doesn't have one)
a iPod (if she doesn't have one)
gift cards for her favorite stores
a shopping trip with her friends
nail polish ;) if she likes it
any thing at Claire's
take her and her friends on a girls day to get mani/pedis go to her favorite restaurant for lunch go see a movie or go to a cupcake shop(or ice cream shop if there isn't one near you) have her friends spend the night.

sometimes if you can't figure out what gift card she likes you can always give her money never give a 12 year old under 10 dollars 10 to 20 dollars is what they like

Books! Some great Young Adult Authors are: Veronica Roth, Charlie Higson, Suzanne Collins, Patrick Ness, Sophie Mckenzie, Sally Nichols and Susan Smith. They write great action and adventure novels such as the hunger games, the enemy series, Divergent, and bold ties.

I am a 12 year old girl, and this is just me, but i like little cute things like Kidrobot Bffs. I think they are small and adorable. I also carry a little bag, kind of like a purse, and i like those kind of things. Also, some good ideas are blue tooth headphones, those kind of things.
