I'm at a loss for what to get SD this year. She turns 8 two months after Christmas. During the school year she is with us EOW. BM doesn't let SK's use stuff from our house so whatever we get her needs to stay here. I get each child stocking stuffers and 3 gifts. Usually one of those gifts is more expensive then the others, around $45 - $50. I've asked SD what she wants but everything that she has mentioned is a girl toy that she already has several of ( ponies, barbies, zhu zhu pets). I never see her play with what she already has because she like to play with hers brothers and they wont play with those things.
For her birthday she has decided that she wants a shopping spree. DH and I will get her one of those visa gift cards and take her shopping for a day. I'm thinking about getting her an american girl magazine subscription as one of her christmas gifts but I want her to have things to open too. If you have a DD/SD around this age what do they like?
