For Christmas, I got my granddaughter an Art Kit with all kinds of paper, colored pencils, and markers.
For her birthday I got her a Chocolate Bomb Kits for hot chocolate.
Then I decided that the bomb kit might need some supervision so I want to get her something else.
Do most kids like trail mix? I ask if she was allergic to peanuts and nuts and she is not allergic to those.
The trail mix that I have available is one with almonds, peanuts, cashews, M & M's, and raisins or a tropical fruit mix with banana, pineapple, mango, papaya, cranberry, coconut, cashew, and walnut.
There is also a berry that I have not tried with dried cranberries, blueberries, and cherries mixed with premium jumbo cashews, walnut halves, pumpkin seeds, almonds, and decadent dark chocolate slices.
I am leaning toward this one with individual packages:
A delicious mix of peanuts, sunflower kernels, raisins and cocoa gems
Perfect for on-the-go snacking
Kar's Sweet 'n Salty mix is gluten-free
New larger count
40 individual 2-oz. packages
Any other suggestions? It is hard for me to keep up with how old she is though she is about 14.

At 14 I would have liked either of those mixes most probably I would have prefered the fruity one. At 14 she shouldn't need supervision in the kitchen, so I think the hot chocolate kit should be fine.
I will say that at 14 I would have found an art kit childish though I would have been quite happy with a set of quality pencils or paints. So it all depends on how mature she is there.
Chocolate bombs were a new one for me thanks Anne! - they do look rather nice! A bomb making kit would be really cool! I agree that 14 is normally old enough to melt chocolate.
However every 14 year old is different and difficult - that in between age. I would have liked books or scientific toys at that age.....a long time ago.
