    Default Desperate for ideas!

    I'm after ideas on what to buy for my DSD. She's 20 and lives at home with her Mother. She's just finished uni and is probably going to continue studying next year. She doesn't drive and we haven't seen much of her lately due to her studies and work. The best thing I can think of is an iTunes gift card but that's rather boring. HELP!! She's a very sensible young woman, not really a party type. The budget isn't very big either (less than $100)

    Please spam me with ideas!!

    Can you tell her to pick a new handbag or something online and you'll buy it? Or go to the nearest large shopping centre and get her a voucher that can be used at any shop in the complex.

    I think the shopping centre voucher is a good one, she can get some clothes or make up.

    Otherwise some body products from the body shop
    Pay for her to get her hair done at a salon, cut and colour etc.

    Does she have a phone, perhaps a prepaid android phone.

    Does she drink tea? Myer have some really nice tea sets for cheap + 30% off and you could get some nice tea from T2?

    Perfume is always an ole faithful.
    Does she wear jewellery?
    I got my cousins girlfriend who is 20 for our secret Santa this year and got her a Rusty Handbag, lip gloss and ear rings.

    Does she want to learn to drive? You could buy her lessons with a driving school.
    Failing that i would play it safe and buy a westfield gift voucher or the likes.

    I always get lots of appreciation when I buy magazine subscriptions as gifts.

    A voucher for a beauty salon might also be a nice option.
