When you're 13, the last thing you want is to be treated like a kiddo with stuffed animals!! The problem these days is that kids are trying to grow up far too fast - at least they're maturing physically faster than they are mentally. I'd go with the chocolates, yes, but I don't see anything wrong with say a pair of earrings or even a nice bracelet. When I was 13 my boyfriend brought me a silver dolphin bracelet and I treasured that thing! I still have it
Actually, I still ahve the wind-chimes he brought me back from Greece once AND the Terry Pratchett novel I recieved for a birthday. That guy knew me so very very well
We're still really good friends - and to think we once dated 10 years or so ago!! He's a sweetie that one - his girlfriend is a really lucky lady
Aaaaah the nostalgia!
