    Gift for a 30 year-old girl


    My sister is 30 next week and I need some ideas for a present. I'm struggling.

    She is a mother of 2 young kids, outgoing, and lives in the UK.

    Any ideas gratefully received...

    Depends on your budget. I could recommend a Range Rover Sport or a small bottle of perfume!

    What about an iPod, a new mobile phone, a laptop, 2 tickets for a weekend break in Prague, Paris, Amsterdam etc., gift vouchers for Harrods, gift voucher for a luxury spa break (bit of pampering for her - looking after 2 kids ain't easy!), a babysitting offer so she can go out and get rat arsed for her 30th, clothes, money . . . . . .

    4.) Lawyers, see rule 3
    5.) It is O.K. to drive a gas guzzler if it helps you get babes
    6.) Everyone should car pool but me
    7.) Bring back the word 'stewardesses'
    8.) Synchronized swimming is not a sport
    9.) Mud wrestling is a sport

    How about a night of babysitting so she can go out and enjoy herself?

    How about one of the Boots gift experiences? I like the Hot Air Balloon Flight although I'm not sure if she'll be able to take the kids up as well, you'd think they'd be room. I might pay for one of the things for guys as it's dads birthday next month.

    How about a gift voucher from a tattoo shop,if they do them;I'd imagine they do. Depends on her taste of course, and possibly yours

    I like the tattoo idea -
    or offer to baby sit so she and her friend can go see the Chippendales or similar :-)

    That's all that I can post that would be appropriate for a multi-age forum

    Cheers,
    Jamie

    Seriously, though, money? A card? Babysitting coupon? CD? Gift card for favorite store? Alcohol?

    Gifts for females


    hmm...
    • jewelery (ear rings, rings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets, and so on)
    • clothes (tops, t-s, shirts, jeans, jackets, gowns, and so on)
    • shoes (boots, sandals, bellies, and so on)
    • cosmetics (perfumes, body sprays, lotions, make up ktis, and so on)
    • share her responsibility for one day (baby sit for her kids, as all said, cook for her, and so on)
    • gift her a holiday package, best i can think of, she will cherish the moments
    • electronics (ipod, cell phone if she is not tied with a service provider and have never used a smart phone then its best idea, digital cameras, cam corders, net book, kindle and so on)
    • and so on more ideas to confuse you

    if you have asked for a guy, answer would have been, booze+babes ;-)

    Helps if you know the person. I got great results with a hardcover signed copy of a Shepard Fairey book but mileage might vary.

    I like the gift certificates, voucher idea or tickets to somewhere.

    Give it to her and at the same time do some babysitting. Bring some pizza and drinks. Enjoy the day playing with your niece or nephew as she enjoys the day outside.

    Jewelry always is good. The shoes/cosmetics really have to be matched to the woman, so they are not as guarenteed.
