Anybody kind enough as to give me an advice about Christmas present for a little girl (11-12 y.o.) :ithink:…?………I have unexpected guests for Christmas and really don’t know what kids of this age like. I really couldn’t say more about her . She might be a little princess with girlish pinky-fluffy things , or may be tomboyish sporty one ..or one of those adorable creeps who crawled the streets in baggy black clothes and black eyeliner….who knows…..
I was staring today at the Hello Kitty stuff . Do girls of this age like that?…What you reckon ?



Thank you :)

I am not quite familiar with Hello Kitty merchandise. I assumed HK merchandise targeted girls of the age group you have mentioned. Well one of my co-worker bought ipod-IZ for her grandchild.

I don't think I've been helpful. In fact, I am probably the last person who should give gift advices :D But I am sure the other members might have some ideas. Beside, you do have plenty of time to decide.

You don't know the girl at all? May be ask to her parents? Hello Kitty is the "cat" isn't it?
Think it would have been a treasure for kiddies of ...hum.....sorry....*caughing...you have to say it...courage Nath...*....hum....our generation.....o_O.....but the new kiddies....:think:...not so sure....think she you would prefer a key - reader of mp3, a small one not too much expensive....the only problem is to know if she doesn't have one already....
But you have to check with her social level or if she is from town or country....just you know such details...

Edit: may be you can try : an orange, with a doll made with corn ears (the full corn body befoe you transform it in pop corns..don't know the real name...) ....it had had success in one past time ...:heh: and it 's good to appreciate the true value of the gestures.....DA! Marina...follow my advice and I'm sure your Christmas will be full of AMBIANCE!!!!yeah!!!:10x:

That's the problem ...she might have one already!
Still, mp3 is an option , thank you , nath.
She is coming over from some place not too far away from Toronto, Canada ...Oh well , why children don't like to read these days???:D


yes , nath , that's a cat (http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/08/20/1092972754654.html)

My suggestion is to call the parents and to ask if you don't want to have a nervous breakdown before Christmas!:newyear:

marina
20-12-2005, 12:47
My suggestion would be a painting kit or some other arts and crafts stuff.
Good call ! thank you :)
Or a watch? yes she might have the mp3 reader.

Hello Kitty has a lovely watch too

Rachel

Da! With a poster of Yulia and Lena kissing on the mouth!!!:DOr how about just buying her some girl on girl porn?! :p

Ooops, sorry, I shouldn't say that, she's only 11 :laugh:

However, I was watching porn at 11 :rolleyes:

ditto

ahem, buy her a PSP :D
wait , let me ask my bitch of a colleague what she'd buy her.

Actually, I'm not gonna ask her. Cause I'm having not a very good day today and I might even add why is she such a bitch and so standoffish. Oh wait I'd ask Mike, the gay colleague if he has made any plans for his marriage ( or social bonding or whatever they call it )

But I won't

ok, I got the rest of replies:

my little pony :p
a karaoke set
a makeup set
inexpensive jewelry
cuddly toys

Rachel

*thinks* when i was 11, what did i play with?You know what I played with when I was 11 :rolleyes:

Lux
20-12-2005, 16:41
yeah but most of us didn't have raging hormones..i mean i *knew* my parts but didn't play until later. LMAO that sounds...bad. anyway, i say a book. get the girl's mental juices flowing early.

You couldn't possibly play 24/7, could you?

Yeah books are a good choice, a young person is eager to absorb information. "young person, this book will enrich and enlighten you on your endeavours in life"
nah, seriously, a nice book is a good present.
Mental juices, duh. Back to sex again. ;)

Rachel
20-12-2005, 17:33
You couldn't possibly play 24/7, could you?Not when I was at school ;)

Lux
20-12-2005, 17:35
well at school there are breaks and you can always get out of class for a few mins with a bathroom excuse

Rachel
20-12-2005, 17:39
Actually yeah :rolleyes:

your boobies! :p
Rachel, I beat ya. I was watching porn when I was 8 :bum:

Marina, how about getting her Harry Potter books? It is for kids of her age.

Kappa
20-12-2005, 21:55
your boobies! :p

... nobody in MY school generation had boobs by the age of 11. :spy:

Edit: Oh right, a present. Well, I have a baby sister that'll turn 9 soon, so very often I find myself thinking of the best presents for a girl that age. I'm very concerned about her education, so I like getting her books and music. In the books department, for someone more or less around that age range, you could get something fantasious in a more classical way, like CS Lewis ("Chronicles of Narnia"), Lewis Carroll ("Alice in Wonderland") or Rudyard Kipling ("Kim", "The Jungle Book"), or something more up to date, like a Harry Potter book. *cringes* As to what regards my baby sister in music, I just don't indulge her in pop fads, but anything from classical to rock is fine, although if this is a girl you have absolutely no contact with you might wanna think twice before giving her music.

If you wanna be a bit more of ample criteria, you could also give her a plush toy. Plush toys aren't dolls, so even most tomboys have a plush toy along their GI Joe's. :p (Yes, I'm speaking from experience).

This is all the advice I can give for a present for a girl you don't know. :bum: Giving gifts is easier if you know the person you're giving it to.
