    need birthday present suggestions

    I have a friend at work that has a birthday Sunday. We laugh and cut up together all the time. She has a great sense of humor. She is around 19 or 20. She is not a horse person. The only pet she has is a pot-bellied pig. So any gift ideas? Both serious and humorous would be appreciated.

    Gift cards for some thing she would not normally do for herself are always a good thing. (spa day, special coffee shop, etc)

    Safe universally liked gift ideas:
    - box of candies
    - organic / hypoallergenic (in case she is) cosmetics. Anything except soap / shower gel. Not sure about your customs but in my country soap / shower gel / antiperspirant may sometimes mean a subtle hint about a lack of hygiene.
    - mobile phone accessory if she has one
    - office related gift: lamp, new mousepad, a coffee cup / can etc

    Fun gifts:
    - personalised T-shirt with one of her favourite quotes of a fun image that would describe her
    - fun pranky toys - no physical pranks though. A Jack in a box or something

    More expensive gifts
    - a piece of jewelry such as bracelet or necklace
    - a silk blouse
    - a set of her favourite show DVDs

    Thanks for the replies. I don't want to spend to much because my daughters birthday is the same day. I might go with the gift card or one of the fun gift suggestions. I definitely don't want to do clothes because the chances of me picking out something she will like are slim to none. I'm a boots and jeans kind of girl and she is more prissy. Mobile phone accessory may be good too. I will have to get a look at her phone today. Thanks again!

    Does she have a candy or snack that she really likes?

    If she likes snickers* bars, buy her a few and tape a card to them and that should be plenty.



    *Snickers are just an example of an item. Insert food she likes there.

    Thanks for the suggestion Alwaysbehind.

    I think what I will do is go with a funny card and a cake at work so all of us can celebrate together.
