Take her out to do something fun that she normally doesn't get to do, one on one.

If it has to be a tangible, find out what kind of clothing, makeup, or jewelry she is into and get one of those things.

Outside of electronics, or possibly a pet of some sort that might be your only bet.

Does she play a musical instrument? That could open a lot of doors if so.

If she's into any hobbies or expressed any interest, see about enrolling her in some kind of local athletic or crafting class (like pottery, etc.)? Or, this would depend on her, but when I was 14 (with my naturally curly, terribly unmanageable hair) I would have loved to have been given some salon time/ consultation with a good product for my hair type (I now use Ouidad). Sometimes a pedicure, manicure, etc. could be a special gift if it's not something she does a lot anyway and it's a time for you two to spend together.

A signed book by her favorite author. A gift card to her favorite clothing store. A locket with photos of both her parents, as children, in it. Concert tickets for whatever nauseating crap she's listening to.

OK, this is electric but perhaps a good idea - get her a sewing machine and a few lessons at a Joann's or another fabric store. She can get creative, design her own fashions, and learn a valuable skill.

Here's a nice little machine at an affordable price of $72.49 :

Why would your 14-year-old daughter be electronic?

According to another thread, it's evil sexism to assume girls want sewing machines. Save the sewing machines for the boys and give her a politically correct GI Joe doll.

Are we to assume that you have another 14 year old daughter who is electronic?

My teen daughter loves Lush products. They have all kinds of gift boxes for Christmas, starting as low as $14.00. She is now 18 years old, and has put her "Lush" list in to Santa. Her love affair with Lush started when she was around your daughter's age. If you have a Lush store near you I would suggest that you go and check it out. The people there are great, and are more than happy to give you free samples of whatever products you're interested in.,en_US,sc.html

it depends on what your daughter is inclined towards. my daughter, almost the same age as yours, likes to bake. so i decided to get her a couple of those cake pop machines with the chocolate dipper.

I'd recommend The Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman. I read voraciously at that age (still do) and if she's not a "big reader" it might
start her on the path to being one.

I bought this Through My Eyes: A Journal for Teens for my niece for her 13th birthday last Jan. It's not your typical journal, just read the reviews! After seeing it in person (she actually brought it to our Cabin on vacation this summer) I bought 3 more copies & tucked them away for when my older granddaughters (10 & 8) and another niece (8) become teens. Its that good. :)

There is a Klutz book "All about me". It is a fun journal with questions to ask friends, and games with friends. My daughter loved it when she was 14.

Music, books, clothing, jewelry (all dependent on what she's into), something cool for her room (lava lamp, puzzle box, signed print, a comfy chair). Take her to a concert, a play, or the theater. Something she's never done before (skiing, pottery class). A family board game.

I have never responded on a feed here. I barely notice them really. This one caught my eye. I APPLAUD you for thinking out of the box. The more "connected" we are the more "disconnected" we become. I liked a lot of the ideas here. My favorite being doing something one on one with her. Get pedicures, see a play, take her to a nice dinner. Good Luck!
