    Hey, feel free to move this thread if it's in the wrong place... I had a bit of difficulty deciding where to put it.

    Ok, so I want to buy an xmas present for a friend of mine. Since we are not spending very much (I think roughly under a fiver) and she's hard to buy for, I thought that nice sweets or other food stuff would be nice. But then I remembered she is following slimming world.

    So, I wanted to know if anyone who knows exactly what is allowed on the diet, what counts as 'sins' etc could suggest something I could get her. Or tell me if the edibles idea is just completely unworkable. I don't want to get her something that's just gonna frustrate her cause she can't eat it, or ruin her diet.

    Could you not get her a scarf or something? You can generally pick up some really pretty ones for under a fiver from markets if there's one near you?

    Although the joy of slimming world is that you can still have your treats so get her a small amount of her fav chocolate.

    Thanks for the advice. After much deliberation and shopping I stayed away from food lol, got her a candle and a compact mirror.

    Thanks anyway though, I will keep this for future reference with her!
