I'm stumped as to what to get...
£150 budget - I was thinking of the liz Earle signature facial, but it's hardly monumental .. Or should I get a keepsake type pressie??

Was thinking of a guess handbag as their is an outlet nearby...

Any help is greatly appreciated x

Two £59 Eurostar return tickets to Paris, a night in a hotel and an offer of babysitting.

Thing is, what I wanted would want, and what my sister (as an example) would want, are just such different things, it's difficult for us to say.
There have been quite a few of these threads this year or maybe I've noticed them more as it applied to me and so many of the suggestions I'd be horrified that people had wasted their money one, and then other things I thought 'Oh, I'd like that', other people shouted down.

<No help whatsoever> grin

Indeed. If someone spent £150 on me on a Guess bag or a Liz Earle facial or a Spa Dayshock I would find it hard not to openly weep with frustration.

She lives in purley...So not to bad for her to get down to london. She is a Monsoon shopper, a teaching assistant.
She has 2 children's - 18 and 13.. She does enjoy the theatre and goes a lot. This year she wen to Corsica on holiday and at Easter went to Paris...

Any other ideas?
