Hi, I am at a complete loss as to what to get my 16 year old niece (just 16).  We have a $50 limit.

Thanks

A very simple black clutch bag.

It's amazing how useful they can be.

Ipod? then an itunes voucher. Gamer? eb voucher. Girly? maybe a haircut/blowdry at a salon, or manicure etc Bookworm? amazon vouchers.

Anything to add to a hobby she has.

Someone on here recently suggested one of those wrecking journals. I bought two  from book depository for my teenage nieces.

At 16 I liked getting music store vouchers the best, then I could buy what I wanted.

I was already fairly picky with cosmetics and perfume and the like.

JB Hi-Fi voucher.  DP's uncle always gets these for his younger, teenage cousins and they're always a hit.

I have a 15 year old and I am getting her:  an underwater camera, Kiki k stationary, antique bottle, priceline voucher, Ally voucher, itunes card, Typo pens, iphone case.  At 15 she definitely has her own taste and it would be a waste of money if I tried to buy her make up or clothes etc.

Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
