Oh bugger. Have bought dd1 virtually nothing. Help.

(37 Posts)

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

Thank you.

She had a hairdryer and straighteners last Christmas. Doesn't wear a watch.

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.

Thanks.

The problem is, we got her loads of stuff in the summer prior to her starting uni - duvet covers,throws, cushions, stationery, travel mug, headphones etc etc.

Thanks for the eyeliner recs. Still pondering the rest!

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.
