    It was my future flatmate and current friend's birthday yesterday and I had no idea! So I need to get her a present and post it to her pronto!

    Thing is, we don't know each other terribly well (I only met her in August) and so I need your help in finding something lovely but quite generic that she'll love for less than £15 ideally. Any real suggestions welcome!

    I already bought her a little tea-filtering set thing as I do know that she loves tea. I also know she loves ASOS, Paperchase and pretty things!

    Thanks for your help, I will rep those who produce good ideas!

    Get a little gift bag, and put in a phone sock, a lipgloss, a phone charm, a key ring and a pair of socks.
    If you shop smartly, you will be able to get all these or a few for under £15

    I do this for all of my friends because it's nice to get little pretty things

    Ooo pretty things like what?

    Could you find something pretty for her kitchen - if she cooks, lounge - if it's a bit bare, bedroom - if she has any particular style faves?

    What about a plant? Some lovely ones are sarting to flower at the monent M&S do lovely little pretty things for around £10. Plus they last

    Paperchase do some lovely things :yes: Hve you looked in there? You might see something perfect. Other than that, you could get her something that will fit in with what she's doing at the moment. Folders/ stationary if she's at uni, bags/ diaries if she's working...

    Oooo I did something similar to my friend but instead I put in - a small bottle of her fave wine, a personalised glass, some really cute socks, a mini diary and a piece of jewellery. It cost less than £15

    I saw it in tescos and knew it was her fave, that's when I actually thought of the 'bag of minis' idea

    Everyones different so this idea is great for anyone as it's so adaptable

    She's living in a bedsit atm and she doesn't cook so any 'home' items wouldn't really be suitable. A plant would be great but its not really post-able and I don't know when the next time I'll be seeing her is!

    Love your idea here though; she loves wine so might get her a mini bottle of that and some other bits and pieces

    Thanks for the ideas so far! xxx
