Oooohhh Fab! couldn't log on for a few days a i have pants wifi and so am super excited now with all the suggestions....especially as I realised it is my friend's birthday too next week! Should have mentioned that she is well off but I am not! Does BF stand for partner of something? I thought it was best friend? However was struggling for husband too so liking popsmummy suggestions there! I am thinking the books for the friend...I like Kate Atkinson Jackson Brodie Case Histories book, and the gloves. Might keep the gin for me....

The Jackson Brodie books are wonderful - I have bought these for people in the past, and they have loved them like I do.
Same goes for gin!

The clutter-free and well-off would combo would make me think nothing materialistic - just a treat to enjoy together. Tickets for us to do something together - spa day, theatre, afternoon tea (at Ritz or other grand hotel? - however noted diet, so might not be suitable), London weekend, murder mystery night etc. If s/he has children: family photo-shoot, theme park tickets, tickets for a day out with the kids (Warwick Castle, Harry Potter etc). Good luck OP.

I guess BF could be boyfriend OP, but I did think best friend. I have a similar issue so hope there are some more suggestions!

Have you ever got him a track day? DH is a nightmare to buy for but driving days trying out different supercars have been a great success.

You can also get silver cufflinks engraved with a monogram or secret message on the back.

Oh, sorry, thought you meant boyfriend not best friend grin

What's your budget, OP?

White Company have lovely candles / home scents (and 20% off online today)

Budget for the BEST FRIEND :-) would be about £20-25 i say self employed with many presents yet to buy! I did get he husband a helicopter lesson last year reduced from £200 to £99 on Groupon...or was it Amazon of those anyway....not sure yet what I will get the Boyfriend ;-)
