Help. I've never posted in this section before but I need to find a gift for a real fashionista for around £7.00 ish. I'm truly on a tight budget and so could push to a tenner maybe.
Is anyone up for a challenge and find a suitably stylish gift for such peanuts? The recipient is 43, really glam, no stranger to spike heels, high fashion tights etc. She wears mostly tiffany or dior jewellery.
In the past I have got her flash beauty balm, silver earrings, a funky wide belt from ASOS and handbags. All have gone down well but this time the budget is far tighter. She only wears mascara and eyeliner in terms of makeup. I'm asking the impossible for £7.00 arent i?
I'óccitanne handcream is a great idea. Or if you can't get hold of some, Paperchase has nice gifts for under a tenner eg a hardback notebook or one of their nice mugs (that come in a box) here, makeup bag, sunglasses case etc etc (Not very S&B/fashionista-like suggestions tho...)
What about getting her a plant? M&S have lovely orchids, or you could get a lavender in a nice terracotta pot, and tie a luxe piece of ribbon round it. I'm quite a 'fashiony' type, but I buy things like nail varnish/hand cream etc myself, so would find something like that really thoughtful.
