15th Birthday Gift Ideas?

I'm turning 15 in 3 days and I don't know what to do for myself and I don't know what I want! That really sucks. I want to find something to get myself.

That sure sounds like 15 or a Gemini. Happy birthday to you. Here's something a little different: why not do something for someone else since you cant decide on what you want. First, thank your parent(s) for your 15 years of life, and for the fact that you have the ability to have so many different things to choose from that its a bit of a problem.

Right now there are kids your age, fighting wars, working in sweat farms, being killed, right here in our own country there are kids wondering if they are gonna get to eat today. While others find themselves in a shelter, homeless after a tornado destroyed their home, their family, and their town.

I don't mean to be a "Debbie downer" but I bet you will get back so much more than you ever thought possible; if you donate a few hours volunteering somewhere like an animal shelter,or a children's hospital, a runaway/homeless shelter, etc. I did that once years ago. I still volunteer when I can.

I've never received a gift that gave me the feeling I got when just my presence made a difference in another's life. Best gift ever. Happy birthday.

To add to what sm002 said, how about doing 15 acts of kindness, 1 for each year of your life? I read an article recently about a woman who did this, and her acts of kindness ranged from giving baked goods to local firefighters and police, to providing coloring books and crayons to a family counseling center, to leaving quarters in vending machines for children to find. She even helped someone load their groceries in the rain. Sounds like lots of fun!
