Hi All

Looking for something special for Dn's 16th birthday. She's going to her first festival in the summer and will have the basic gear but wanted to get her something that will be useful, unusual and will inspire gratitude to her cool Auntie who is cool and youthful enough to think of these things wink. Any ideas? other than a bottle of vodka

Some really nice wellies maybe? Or one of those person-shaped sleeping bags? They're quite fun, though not that useful. Or angel wings (they seem quite popular at festivals).

Or maybe a flag and flagpole so she can find her way back to her tent (likely to be stolen sadly)?

Personally I would appreciate a bucket and a stash of Wag Bags for nighttime wees, but then I am old and have had a child.

Really it needs to be something she can wear on her as otherwise it will no doubt go missing.

You could make up a little Festival Essentials bag with babywipes, loo roll, sun cream wipes, possibly condoms (depending how cool you want to be!), paracetemol or similar hangover cure, some cool sun glasses and/or sun hat, a head torch (v useful if not cool), etc etc.

A massive batiste dry shampoo; brown if she's brunette, a pretty Cagoul/Mac, wellies, customised denim shorts, makeup wipes, one of those solar powered charging phone cases, battery powered charger, funky torch.

A she-wee?

Less practical, as mummypig mentioned, maybe something like fairy wings, a flower head garland and some florescent face paints/hairspray!
