I need to get a present for someone by the weekend, but am not going to get much chance to shop before then, so am hoping someone may have seen something suitable! She would like:

- A short-sleeved knit (like a T-shirt shape, but a bit warmer)
- In a strong colour (or colours) - she likes rich jewel colours (e.g. deep reds, warm purples or deep pinks, bold blues or greens) but NOT pastels or navy, and probably not yellow or orange either.
- Fairly simple/classic style
- Ideally a not-too-low neckline, as she doesn't like her neck showing too much
- Budget up to £30ish.

Any ideas gratefully received!

Lands End ticks ALL your boxes! You'll just have to choose between purple, blue or red.

The Edinburgh Woolen Mill does short sleeve jumpers

We've bought mom loads and they have lasted well

Wow some brilliant suggestions there, thank you all! I think she would like the Miss Selfridge one and definitely some of the others too. Can't have a proper look now cos I'm working but I will have a better look through them later!

She is in her early 70s but wears quite casual styles, usually plain or patterned tops/jumpers and jeans or cords, and is not particularly old-ladyish.
