our babysitter has just finished her exams and I wanted to pick up a small gift for about £10, any ideas what to get? she loves Top Shop and Cara Delavinge. I'm really stuck as I am sure she sees us as ancient (we are) and I wanted to get something a bit more personal than a voucher. Thanks!

Topshop makeup, especially the lipsticks at £8 each. Rio Rio is particularly good if she's into red lipsticks.

funky socks and a House of Holland exercise book

Second the idea of Top Shop make up. OhhLaLa is another good red/orange lipstick and the Glow Pots are good too.

A nail polish, a fashion magazine and some chocolate in a gift bag.

My daughter had a lovely set of make-up brushes for her 18th birthday (appreciate that they cost a lot more than £10) but you could get her one nice brush perhaps?

thanks for the suggestions, I'm definitely going to be getting makeup / brushes and will pop a magazine in too.
