for £30 or under....
Come on guys, this is serious - I need to pull the proverbial rabbit out a hat here
inb4 dick in a box
in which case £30 Millets voucher.
...elephant in the room or not.
Tip: bigger really is better.
may as well make it a vibrating one. You can pick them up for £30
But maybe if you thought of her as a person rather than just a 'woman' it would help. What does she like? What does she do? What would she like to do? Etc etc
spill some beans and i'm pretty good at this
No real hobbies, likes clothes, films, books and the usual girl things like perfume
its not too strong and its just a nice summery sweet smell. £6 over budget though....eeesh
we still need to know more about her before we can get into great present territory
but yeah, perfume IS a great present. as long as you get the right one, obvs
But I would actually be well chuffed if someone got me some nice perfume. The only problem is that perfume is quite a personal thing so it's hard to buy someone some that they will really like. I like this one http://www.theperfumer.co.uk/product_p/GAREMPF0105002.htm which is just about in the stated budget - but it took me a while to find one I really liked as I'm fussy about smells, and someone who liked fresh or very floral fragrances may not like it. So perfume's a great present in theory, IMO, but a tricky one too. If you know which perfume she likes and get her some of that though I reckon that could be a winner.
probs be easier in the long run.
Also, my brother suggested a set of tea towels....?
clock is ticking decision needs to be reached TODAY
If she doesn't like the slippers then you know the rest.
Or- some jewellery from accessorise or topshop.
Unless there is someting SPECIFIC she has pointed out in the past.
Accessories though. I've got some good accessories in the in past from men. But you do need to really know the person and her style otherwise it can go so wrong
They have loads of nice easy gifts.
My friend's mum recently pointed out that I have the same ironing board
cover as her. Can anyone think of a more mundane and pointless remark to make than this?
Wrap it like a big ostentatious present, big bow, the works. Then slip into it, puttin arms through the holes at the side and head through through the top.
Attach a big gift tag saying TO: Girl From: God
Then spend £30 down the boozer
that you get in those twee little shops in small villages and towns. Just buy £30 worth of that...
this thread ticks all the "what to get as a present" boxes.
