My dd is turning 9 this year, and for the first time I am having a hard time finding something on her birthday list that I'd like to buy for her. Any voices of experience out there? Should I just cave in and get the Fashion Polly Mall, or should I buy a chess set because I think she'd get something useful out of it? I want her birthday to be special, but I want to give her gifts that mean something special to me, too. What to do?
