Can you sew?  Make her a funky bright hot pink purse, with a real wild lining.  (use the jordy bag pattern).  PUt a fun applicae(sp) on the outside, and then make a pocket for her cell phone on the inside.

if she has a pay as you go phone, as alot of teens do, include a minute card in the pocket of the purse.

I like the purse idea! If she's "trendy" she could prolly always use a new purse!

I just attended a craft fair yesterday at a local high school, which was put on by their cheerleading/drill team.  One thing I noticed that seemed quite popular was semi wide belts that sat angled on their hips, often with some sort of metal studs or decorative feature.  Perhaps something like that, though in general the girls really seemed to like retro 80's things, it was like revisiting my youth, I kept waiting to hear the twilight zone music being played.

Overall the girls on this site are pretty good with fashion and on top of things, I am looking through their crafts to get an idea of gifts for my nieces.

you could crochet a scarf on your plane ride. I could teach you how because I'm SCARF CRAZY as you've seen. It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Come on over my friend.

How about buying a cell phone cover (or making one) and stencilling Eminem's face on it? Otherwise, I do like the purse idea though...*sigh* I need a new purse...

You're in luck! I just happen to be a 17 year old girl too! Although I'm not like how you described your sister,Ii'm surrounded by girls like that at school every day. Sequins are really trendy now. Eeeevery girl has the slouchy crochet-type purse with the sequins all over it so maybe you could make something like that? Or a sequin belt? Or you could make her cute cell-phone accessories since she's always on the phone. Like a cell phone charm (you know, the ones that hang off the antaena?) and a new cell phone holder or something like that. hope i could help!
