Bargain presents for best friend

My best friend always gets DD and I really lovely birthday and Christmas presents. She puts a lot of thought in, and gets some really great things.

This Christmas I am on an extremely tight budget; working PT and sorting DD means I don't have much in the way of present allowance.

Does anybody have any really great bargain ideas that still look a lot? I did her a stocking last year so can't really repeat it. She doesn't care about how much I spend I know, but she is such a great friend she deserves something nice!

Bake her some cupcakes? She'll know that's a personal effort?

Have you got a TKMAX near you? You can frequently buy some lovely things for a good price. I only buy my BF token presents and can often find a little something for around £10. Not sure if that is within your budget?

If budget is less, how about a bottle of wine or make something such as some fudge, or buy a paperback book?

This will sound strange but bear with me - when my Mum was diagnosed with a terminal illness, I bought a tiny notebook from Paperchase and I wrote one thing per page that I loved about her / she'd taught me / a memory. It was very personal and contained things one would normally only tell someone else or wish you'd told them after they'd died. She absolutely loved it.

Search "womdee" or "tonsee" on Amazon - nice scarves, cushion covers, bags etc for a few quid

Thanks guys, I'll check these out!

Telephone, what a beautiful idea. And a memory in itself, I'm sure flowers
