have to buy a present for my sister's birthday. We're not particularly close, mostly due to age difference & geography. Personality difference too I guess.

Lowdown on her:

1. she is 28
2. a celebrity
3. recently split from her fiance
4. recently bought her own flat
5. lots of disposable income - buys a lot of flash stuff and is gifted lots of designer stuff because of her job

what in the sam hill do I buy her?????

maybe this? Great as a beach dress, and she does spend a lot of time at the beach...

THat's lovely. Can you explain nature of celebrity-dom without giving too much away? Would help in gift choice

Alternatively, does she have a good sense of humour? Perhaps something to make her laugh out loud would be more appropriate than clothing given that she already has so much at her disposal?

TV presenter on popular show and general girl about town. Often on judging panels for various glammy things. Not in the UK though.

Actually, have just about decided to buy her a framed print for the new house. She loves Matisse (one of the few things we have in common!) so I reckon something along those lines.

Erm, good sense of humour ... only when at the expense of others, let's just say.

Afraid its lost on me, if you are.
