What should I buy my sister for her birthday?

Found 11th Jul 2009
It's my sisters birthday 1st August, shes 25 and being her younger brother I have no idea what she likes! I've already bought my mum and OH's pressies without a problem (they seem a lot easier to buy for and unfortunately they're all within 3 weeks of one another!)

I can't really afford much, no more than £50 though as I'm somewhat skint at the moment! what would you girlies out their like for your birthdays? or what have you bought someone and they absolutely loved!

I dont think I can buy jewelery as she's alergic to certain metals (or something) so thats a bit out of the Q =/

nice advertising =P unfortunately she already has one! doh lol

Heh, its my Birthday on the 1st August as well.

Anyway, just buy her a nice gift set from The Body Shop. They have a massive sale on at the moment so you won't have to pay outrageous prices.

Thanks for the info, i never knew the body shop had a sale on, I shall be having a hunt for some pressies on there.. no doubt I'll end up spending!

Still open for lots of other ideas! lol

depends whats she is into krato -

perfume - nice but too personal

gift vouchers - no thought put into it

Tell me about it! lol

She isn't going on holiday as she's just came back from one!
I could get some perfume as I know the ones she likes but I'm prety certain her boyfriend will be buying her some. I'd have to ask my mum what kind of cosmetics/toiletries etc she likes as I'm not totally sure! But my idea was to get her a main present and a few smaller ones as you said, that way a lot more thought has been put into it!

TBH we don't spend a great deal of time with each other now she's older and always busy, so I don't really know what she likes (other than clothes) so it makes things really quite difficult

I know the ones! And actually that is one hell of an amazing idea! Thank you sooo much I cant believe I never thought of it, she absolutely loves photos her room is plastered with them and she's always sending off for huge prints at truprint and stuff, that would be a great present for her! =D
