Oh bugger. Have bought dd1 virtually nothing. Help.

All I've got her is 3 pairs of knickers and some perfume.
She's 18, at uni. Want actual real things that can be wrapped up, rather than vouchers or hard cash.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllpppppppppppppp! smile

Ah I see ponders

I know you want something to wrap up, but a tradition in my family is (well, when it comes to clothes) you pick something out before and it's wrapped up. You have to try and pull your best surprised face grin Maybe a little DM-DD trip for a new Christmas outfit? Or is that horribly dull.

One last thing though- if she is a Topshop girl and likes vintage inspired kooky stuff- Casio do great inexpensive watches in gold and silver with retro faces. Will try and look for some links smile

This is the liquid liner I use and I swear by it. Been using it for years as the wand is really easy to use.

You could wrap her up a home-made "voucher" for a trip to the Jan sales in a box with tissue paper. I often do that for things like theatre trips where I want something to hand over.
