What can my daughter do for her 13th birthday party if it is in December? We've come up with some ideas, but none seem like "the one" (in her words).

Have guests come as favorite singer, or do a take off on a favorite TV show, or a scavenger hunt, or one of those crime mystery parties. (09/02/2010)
I took my daughter and some of her friends to the local beauty school to have their hair shampooed and styled, and their nails done (make an appointment). Afterwards, my husband and I took them out for dinner so they could show off their new look. They felt very grown up and had a blast! (09/02/2010)
I've given many 13th birthdays for family and friend's kids. My favorite (and the one that is always the biggest hit) is the digital scavenger hunt. Break the kids into three or four groups. Pair each group with a parent driver. Send them out around town and ask them to capture these things with digital cameras:
Give each group an hour and a half to go out and complete the tasks. Instruct the parents that they can't go over the speed limit and that they must allow the girls to direct the locations and situations. The group must trade off as photographers so that each girl has several photos. When they come back the party goes on with movies or whatever, while you upload the photos and compile the scores. As an added bonus, if you're good with the computer, each girl can take home a montage of the pictures.
This party has never failed. Even our police officers have always gotten completely in the spirit when they see kids out having good clean fun. (09/18/2010)
