    Default gift ideas for 40th bday for a friend?

    so dh and I are off to a friend's 40th next weekend. he's pretty good mates with the bday girl's hubby. I wouldn't say I'm close to her but they're good friends, definitely not just acquaintances.

    we are totally stumped as to what to get her for a gift. so far I've come up with 1 idea...a nice photo frame. but even that seems lame lol.

    I'm not really sure what she's into either, like she's a florist so knows her flowers etc but I'm not sure what else she's into. she's not a big wine drinker as far as I'm aware.

    any ideas oh knowledgable ladies of the hub? x

    Have a look on Hard to Find. They have some nice stationery, there was a gorgeous Ted Baker organiser/notebook which would be a lovely gift.

    Can't go wrong with vouchers. Even a voucher from a nice restaurant, accommodation gift card, day spa voucher etc Don't get something just for the sake of it. Photo frames, stationary, jewellery etc is all very subjective to taste and many wouldn't use.

    Our go to gift for these situations if we live locally is to gift them a voucher to one of our lovely restaurants.
