Was thining about presenting her with an address book filled with all her friends details and letters from them. I dont want to give her something that is going to take a lot of moving (IYSWIM) is this a good idea or should I think of anything else. All suggestions welcome.

Thank you

Anyone else think this is ok

this would be lovely. are you gonna ask everyone for email and post adresses and fill out yourelf???

singyswife Sun 10-Aug-08 19:37:56

No I was going to take it round her friends personally so that they could all write a wee note in it for her. Do you think this will be okay or should I fill it in myself??

oh no friends filling out their own details is far nicer.

What a lovely idea

Thank you, I felt a bit mean just doing this and needed to know it was okay.

'Just doing this?'

I think a present that takes a bit of effort like you are going to do is worth its weight in gold!!

Perhaps little photos of the friends inside there as well if you are really feeling keen.

Hhhhmmm thats an idea, I will see if I can get photos of her friends on Saturday at her bbq. Alternatively I can contact another friend who may have photos.
