I had organised a show for my PILS to go and see, and it's been called off confused

I need a replacement present!!

I have thought of: getting their bible reading printed nicely, but can't find someone to do it in time / a design I like. Also getting same but paper cut.

More boring: books. This is a bit dull though as we did it last year!

They are Christian, national trust types, left wing, quirky. Budget £30-50 for a joint present or half that each. We aren't seeing them until the 29th so a little more time than usual. But I have no ideas! Help me!! <panics>

How about an art fund card?

What area do you live in?

Afternoon tea?
River cruise with lunch?

Where do they live? Museum membership?

Bottle of naice fizz goes down well with most, do they drink?

I've bought nice ceramic pieces from these people: pamaforza.co.uk/index.php/pama-forza-jerusalem-pottery/

Have you tried Etsy? If you search for "Scripture printables" and the Bible verse reference then you may find something you like that you can print off on your own printer and find a nice frame for. This is really quite cheap (the printable could cost less than £5) so you might like to get something extra too? Maybe a home made hamper type gift?

We are in Surrey but they're in Dorset (near Wimborne)

I have spent the evening scouring etsy, there's a couple of things with this verse but not much. I think they have picked a really obscure one!!

Will look at that link thanks Ethelb.
We got them an afternoon tea earlier this year for helping us when ds was born, so that's out, but will look at other experiences in their area.

Thanks everyone. So helpful!

Nice wellies, picnic basket or blanket? I'm thinking outdoorsy national trust people.
