In case you all can't tell, i'm very excited about christmas this year... lol. Anyway, i need another "smaller" gift in the $15 dollar range for my step daughter whos 7.5 to get at our family Christmas party from Santa. I dont know why, but i'm just drawing a blank on this one and it seems like it should be so easy.

For her regular gifts shes getting
- digital camera
- make your own hair accessory kit thing
- spirograph
- boggle jr
- two video games
- slippers

then for the party i have another board game also. She loves games (both video and non) which i've got covered, arts and crafts stuff but doesnt need anymore crayons or paper or anything, she loves books but just got $75 dollars worth of books for her birthday most of which shes hasnt read yet... soo yeah, i'm stumped. Any ideas? I think most of you with older kids have boys but anyone feel free to throw out ideas!

Okay so some of my ideas are a bit dorky but what about a Snuggie? They make them in all sorts of colors and such...my kids LOVED them last Christmas. I never thought they'd be so excited about a wearable blanket!
Or what about one of those Happy Nappers? There are tons of different varieties under different brand names on the market...they might be closer to $20 though...
Lets see...what else...
nail polish/lip gloss type stuff
bath stuff like bath beads, bubbles ect
Barbie (is she too old for that?)
doll accessories if she still plays with those...
hat/gloves/scarf set

Okay that's all I can think of! Let us know what you end up getting!

Thank you Kiliki for my awesome siggy!

I was going to say pj's, but I think you have mentioned that you got her those for Christmas eve. I like the snuggie idea - I got my neices those last year and they loved them. I found disney princess snuggies at costco for super cheap. Costco has cool plush throw blankets and pillows right now too.

I love Angela's suggestion of nail polishes or scarf/hat/gloves set.

My daughter loves littlest pet shop and stuff like that. My daughter is 10. She also likes the nail polish and lip balm especially the lip smacker stuff.

Squinkies are really popular right now.
