    Doing the annual secret santa, and i've got the same girl as I had last year. Last year, I got her some nice perfume.

    This year, i'm completely stuck! She said in an open comment to the entire house, i'd like clothes from A-Wear, Topshop or somewhere similar.. Now i'm not a clothing guru by any means, but how the hell am I going to get a dress from those places in my budget? (Budget is £10-£15)

    So, ladies.. is this actually possible given the budget? If not, can you suggest some other alternatives for a present?

    Ps. I also don't trust myself buying girls clothes, so alternative presents are very much required

    I've thought this - as we did say - vouchers are allowed.
    I just think it's a 'get out of jail card', and i'd really like to use it as a last resort...

    OR

    Use it the idea, put £10 on it, and then buy a little prezzie to go with it (now what that little prezzie is, I have no clue!)

    i think the voucher is the best bet, just means that your friend can pick whatever she wants rather than you buying her something that she doesn't really like.

    When i get my friends a voucher i usually get them a bath gift set or some jewellrey to go with it.
