She is 30yo, has a toddler, is a jeweller (so I would never buy her jewellery), likes gaming on a PC. My budget it £15, however my problem is if she wanted to buy something then she is able to afford just to get it. I suggested a spicery box to my brother as I'd seen them recommended on here but it's a no apparently. She likes alcohol but there are not many gifts which are alcohol and £15, plus I'm t total so have no idea where to start. Most importantly she is incredibly nice so I don't just want to get her something crap. I don't want to get her clothes as she has a more expensive taste than £15 and my mother got her gloves already so my budget could buy nothing she would like.

Aldi flavoured gin is very good and cheap!!

What kind of alcohol does she like? You could track down a couple of nice miniatures for her in a gift bag. Selfridges have some nice ones, if there's one near by. Or those interesting shaped bottles where you can choose the spirit and have a message written on?

Is there a game you know she likes, you could get some merchandise to go alongside?

I don't know if this would work but what about a 'voucher' for a day time babysitting session and a Costa (or where ever) voucher?

I'm not near an Aldi but maybe could get to a Lidl, I guess it would be ok if it didn't say Lidl on it anywhere, anyone know?

I thought about the pretty bottle sets and looked up demijohns but they are just so expensive for what you get, plus I may have bought her or my brother one before so don't want a repeat gift.

You have inspired me almost - my brother said no to the alcohol but when you said game (rather than gaming as I kept saying), you made me think of board game and my brother has said yes. Yay! Thank you both grin

a Magniband would be £5 - good for taking close up pictures of her jewellery with a phone?
I got some after seeing them on the bargains thread and tried it out on a snowflake - which can only have been 1mm - it was amazing.

Does she like a particular author? Could you get her a book that she would like?

Lidl do lovely Gin - there's a raspberry and a rhubarb/ginger flavour for £12 each. The bottle is nice and the brand is called Horton or something like that (not sure if says Lidl somewhere in small print but nowhere obvious).
