I need to find a small Christmas present for my friend's 14 yr old DSD. I was out shopping today and had some ideas:
journal (very cool - by local graphic artist)
locking diary (is she too old for this?)
cool water bottle
t-shirt that I think she'd really like (but is about $10 more than I wanted to spend and we're on a tight budget).
some sort of soap/bodywash or similar gift set
Here's what I know about her: she wants to move to Montreal after highschool (the t-shirt I saw was made by a local Montreal artist and is a funky print of a montreal scene). At least when she was a bit younger (it's been a couple years since I've seen her) she was into Anime and comics (thus why I think she'd like the journal with the cool illustrations that I saw). And, since last I saw her, (though raised by non-religious parents) has become born-again Christian. Besides that has always come across as a very sweet, caring girl. Loves her new baby (half) sister. Does not strike me as the super-trendy-dressing, make-uppy, etc kind.
I know the usual advice is a gift card but I'd prefer not to go that route because I have honestly no idea what kind of gift card she'd like.
So - thoughts about my ideas? Any different/better ideas?
