So my step mum who is absolutely lovely doesn't like nic nacs, doesn't drink, wear make up or carry a handbag. Any ideas?

Does she have any hobbies or things she does like? Could you make her a hamper of things she likes (teas, coffee, mug, bics, cakes, book, DVD, jigsaw, nice smelliest)

Have a look at not on the high street website for some inspiration.

What does she like? If she has a magazine, does she want a description? Manicure? Car valeting if desperate? Nice moisturiser?

Good luck finding her something suitable!
