    Default Gift ideas

    My neighbour found her 17 year old daughter passed out when she got home this afternoon from work and they are in hospital waiting for some answers. They also have a 2 year old and I would really like to give them a gift or do something nice for when they get back home. Anyone got some ideas?
    I was thinking of cooking them a meal but I don't have great culinary skills! Haha your help is greatly appreciated!

    Offer to look after the little one? If you (and the mum) are comfortable with that of course.

    I was going to say cook a meal but if you are not a keen cook, what about a voucher for a local food place who will deliver or if miss 17 is going to be in hospital for a while she might like a pack of magazines, nail polish, iTunes credit etc?

    Yeah I'd say just stuff for the 17 year old to do in hospital as Biscotti said. Mags, books, nail polish etc.

    What a lovely idea, I wish my neighbours were like you!
    I agree with offering to mind her little one, if her 17 year old will be in hospital for a while she might need some help with child minding

    If they have pets offer to look after them? You know. Feed them and play with them a bit.

    What about a Coles myer voucher, they could use it for something nice or food from Coles or magazines from Coles. Hope everything is ok.
