Hi all, please can you help me with gift ideas for my sister and her girlfriend- they are both 30ish and live in an apartment in london. Both very successful career ladies so the gift would ideally be more on the 'small indulgent' side as they are able to afford most conveniences.
They are both active gym goers, appreciative foodies, fairly stylish and technologically up to date and very into sport- both following and playing. Also they travel to us by train so would much prefer something light/easily transportable. Budget- probably up to £40/50

Many many thanks in advance smile

How about a subscription for something like a curry club or wine club?

The spicery do great curry deals. They send you a box with a recipe and all the spices you need pre-mixed. I got one for DH for his birthday last year. Think it was about £40 for 6 months.

Magazine subscription? Maybe a foodie/lifestyle magazine.

What sort of scents do they like? I've been eyeing up this l'Occitane box of goodies for myself.

Voucher towards going to a nice restaurant. Works well as a joint present.

The Literary Gift Company and Present Indicative would both be worth a look.

Membership of an art gallery.

How about a Chilly water bottle - very funky with loads of designs.
