My pal is going back to work on monday after her maternity leave. She is a teacher.

I want to pack her a little fun 'goodie bag'. So far I've thought of novelty postit notes and a new pen/pencil, headache tablets. I'm not very inventive... can you help me out with ideas?

Clarins handcream. Smells glorious, lasts for ages.
Nice new mug?
Aren't you a thoughtful pal! Hope her return goes OK.

Nice packet of biscuits, selection of tea and coffee, nice smelly hand cream?

A cooling face spray. Evian do one quite cheap or you could get a more expensive one.

Nice lippy and mascara (need to be smart at work) maybe a new snazzy top (Boden sale is good!), Clarins Beauty Flash Balm (to give her radience on tired days!). Not sure how much you want to spend, those are quite serious things but my sister got me a load of stuff like that when I went back after almost a year off and it was a real spirit-lifter!

ooh - I agree - lots of lovely make up/beauty-type things that she won't have had any time to do at home, but can nip to the loo at work and make herself look/feel all glam!
