Need to find out what her interests are.. Hobbies, music, perfumes, lotions, particular scent of these does she like to read? Maybe a subscription to a favorite magazine. Gift cards are great maybe buy one at a mall where she could spend it at any store there.

I have a 14 year old. She isn't into purses but I just found her a personal organizer with a cellphone pocket (she has a cell) and pen on the front, a monthly and weekly planner, calculator, four year calendar, phone & address book, lined memo pad, ID & credit card holder in one zipped area. And a split purse type pouch in another zipped area. It's made by Sigma Impex Inc, model S-631C.


For her birthday I got her a magazine subscription to something she is really into (manga). I also bought her a book in a subject that she is interested in.

For my 12 year old son I got a membership to a Game Pro store which gets him a monthly magazine about new games coming out and a discount at the store. He promised to share this with his two sisters since they are all into some kind of video game. If your cousin has a game interest this would work.

A book of jokes or funny facts can't go wrong unless your family has no sense of humor.

A pair of nice wrap around sunglasses might be good.

A nice fleece blanket. I found some nice ones at for $5. Different designs to choose from so pick one you think she will like.

If your cousin is a warrior of crist you can get the Armor of God coin from MU-84119. Also at that site you can get a farting pachyderm, carnivorous plants, world's weirdest plants and other neat and unique gifts. I just mentioned the ones I'm getting my kids.


You can alos check out, and for unique and sometimes hard to find items.

And I'll add; if you think about buying something you have seen advertised on TV like a snuggie or slap chopper or other such thing. You can find some of those items at RiteAid and Walgreens and not pay shipping and handling charges.

When in doubt, cash always works - especially if you don't know exactly what she'd like.
