    Default What do you get for the person who has everything and needs nothing??

    Help!!!

    I ALWAYS Struggle on what should i get my bestie? Every year, Birthdays, christmas, i have NO idea!

    It doesn't help that she's single, no kids, lives at home , and works so can afford to get whatever she wants, as she wants it, go on a few holidays each year...

    She.....
    ** likes AFL - buys herself a membership and has any and all merchandise you could think of!
    ** Loves DVDs/movies, but buys any new ones she wants to see as they are released!
    ** loves Cooking/Baking - Subscribed herself to 'the art of baking'.
    ** Plays Tennis - Needs nothing, buys herself new things each year.
    ** Has a new car - but has already purchased anything you could think of
    ** Does Scrapbooking - Has a HUGE stockpile of anything i could ever think of!
    ** Likes live perfomances/concerts/theatre - Attends at least 4-5 each year.

    Im so stuck Im just thinking of a massage/day spa voucher or something...but not really sure? Or Maybe a red balloon voucher that she could put towards an experience on a holiday? I dont want to do the same things, and im always trying to think outside the square...a few years back we got her a cake making kit, and a personalised AFL poster with her name etc on it...

    I like the idea of an oxfam donation or something, but not sure it would be appropriate?? (shes not that kind of person, IYKWIM?)

    Buy her an experience or a class on something.....like a cup cake masterclass or thai cookery or coffee making, wine appreciation, just something she can do rather than have.

    A pack with nice champers, pj's, bubble bath, candle,choccies and a magazine?
    A new perfume?

    There's a tea shop called t2 do you have one nearby? My sil recently bought a homemade ice tea infuser jug and a selection of fresh and exotic teas. She had some tea made up and gave me some to try, it was delish! You could also add some gorgeous tumbler glasses to serve the tea depending how much you want to spend?

    Also what about pandora? Does she have a bracelet? You could buy her a charm or some pandora earrings if her bracelet is complete.

    Thankyou ladies! Full of ideas as always!
    We don't have t2 nearby, but I could check out local gift shops.
    She has 2 pandora bracelets! (I thought a charm last year) but she was already saying how she got the last few to fill them on holidays in qld. Will check out ear rings.
    I love the pamper pack idea! We got her perfume and a footcare pack for her birthday. Dinner could be good too!
    I was thinking of an experience too classes are a great idea!! But being rural theres nothing around.
    she doesn't drink at all.


    Keep the ideas coming! I'm sure theres others who have the same kind of problem!

    An experience that she can share with you. Something simple like gold class movie with your best mate is way nicer than an awesome solo experience.

    Any cooking stuff. I love getting that!

    The Gordon Ramsay Ultimate Cookery Course is a great new cookbook.
