She is a single mum and doesn't have much spare money so I want to treat her to a nice stocking of goodies. So far I have got her:
Nail polish
Choc orange
Newlook voucher

More ideas would be much appreciated. Would like to spend around £25 more

Yes! Alcohol!
Her ears aren't pierced. She's too squeamish to get them done. She loves fake tan so was thinking about a bottle of the tan she uses and a new tanning mitt.

Clothes voucher definitely - my sis did this for me and it was so appreciated.
Agree with derek - alcohol miniatures - in fact derek has mentioned all of my ideas.

Miniatures are expensive when you can get a whole drinkable bottle for £4 in Tesco or Asda at the moment.

Just saying... fsmile

Face masks or a nice bath bomb/bubble bath.

Gorgeous idea

Add in a free babysitting voucher or 2 from you to be redeemable when she wants.
Maybe a years magazine subscription? Pressie every month then

For my 25 year old DSis, not a single mum, i have done the following:

Chocolate Santa
Mojito flavour lip balm
Christmas socks
Shower gel
Chocolate coins
2 bags her favourite sweets
Scarf (Sainsbury are doing amazing ones atm)
Christmas badge
Christmas knickers {sainsbury again, v pretty)
A couple of other things that are particular to her

How about posh chocolate she doesnt have to share? Cinema and babysitting voucher?

All your ideas are brilliant. Ive gone over budget but I think she will love it.
This morning Ive ordered:
Scarf (asos)
Necklace (asos)
Fake tan
Knickers (new Look)
Little hot water bottle (New look)
Mirror (Newlook)
A Tamagotchi (ebay - she will love this!)
Will grab her a soap and glory lipgloss in boots tomorrow

And I've added to my sainsburys grocery delivery:
3 bars of lindt chocolate
A packet of haribo
A bottle of malibu

Id do a babysitting voucher but I have the baby over night once a fortnight anyway and she's not shy about asking if she wants me to have him.
