PostSubject: Christmas Gift Ideas   Tue Sep 06, 2011 9:45 am

I do know its only the begining of September but I'm already thinking of Christmas gifts. (Takes my mind off the heat we are still dealing with.)



I have been taking twin girls to school every morning for a friend and I wanted to get the girls something this year. They are 13 in 8th grade. I was wondering if you all could help give me ideas of what I could put together for them. I already have some paper mache squares boxes (small) that I got at Hobby Lobby that I could put some items in . I will probably ask their mom for more ideas, but not having girls I need lots of help.

Their names are Sonya and Sophia. Sonya has some fine motor skills issues : so for her she doesn't like to use markers etc...although that might help. She is a little fashion hog...asked me if wearing sunglasses on her head looked weird while wearing glasses too...lol! ....Sophia likes music, and likes to draw. (YES!)

Thanks....

Good idea Krissy. They do like lipgloss.

Maybe you may send Sophia the music she really wishes and to Sonia some fashionable clothes. I think they will appreciate it. Smile

Vanesa.

How about a gift card to a salon or spa? We have one out here designed specifically for girls. It's called Daisy Doos. They offer manicures, pedicures, and hair styling. Maybe they have something like that where you are.

My girls are pocketbook/bag hogs. When we visit Claire's they instantly walk over to the wall with the purses. Even at Justice, where we went this weekend, the bags attracted them.

This might sound silly, but how about boot socks? At Justice I saw some very nice ones--more than I was willing to pay--that are meant to be worn with fashion boots.

Gee, what else. Do either of them own e-readers (Kindle, Nook, iPad)? You could gift them some books if they like to read.

Though Sonya doesn't like to draw, they make these kits where you can design/draw your own clothes. I think they also make computer games to do that. Perhaps she would like to draw more if you could tap into her love of fashion.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

AWWW thanks Vanesa and Cheryl. Those are really good ideas. I'm going to talk to their mom as well. This is FUN!
