Is she into anything in particular that you could get a years magazine subscription for?
WHsmith on line is quite good for ideas of what magazine to get.

<<racks brains>>

How much do you want to spend?

Dont know about price, she is into her garden, going walking with her friend and going out with me and the kids. That doesnt really help does it.

Some cheese and wine in a basket?

Day out at health spa?

Picture of you?

one of those Picnic backpacks so she could take it when out walking?

There are some lovely things you could get her for the garden. A nice trug and gardening gloves, a lovely plant/shrub in a pot, one of those kneeler things and an apron. Have a look at Garden Trading for ideas

Years subscription to a gardening magazine and something for her garden..a nice bird box maybe?

I think a box of chocolates is a highly underrated gift, as is a bottle of alcohol.

A lipstick
an umbrella
a hairbrush
a fountain pen
a missoni scarf
a vase

She cannot eat chocolate as it gives her a migraine shock. Doesnt drink much, and is a nightmare to shop for. AAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHH

A token for a meal out with you
