I gave my friend for her birthday (mid 40's) a gorgeous classic Burberry cashmere scarf.......ok not so practical for Dubai but she does travel alot. She was thrilled!

Have just had a b'day and a friend gave me a voucher for a French manicure. I was delighted.

You will get a few people say a mani pedi voucher but for me that reeks of 'I couldn't be bothered' (not aimed at you Cheeky Monkey).

A gift doesn't need to ne expensive. Putting thought in means so much more to a true friend.

Suggestions:

Gold Pass movie tickets (or go together and see a girly movie and have a cheap meal afterwards so you can critique the show)

The latest book by her favourite author with a handwritten note from you inside

A unique coin purse with 30 one dirham coins in it

A classy keyring that is either beautiful or correlates to an experience (a hobby of hers, a place you went together etc)

If you know a place she would love to visit but has never been then get her the appropriate travel book along with a notepad and pen so she can plan her adventure

No offence taken Cyclone, each to their own! I like, no, make that LOVE receiving vouchers as it means I have to make time to pamper myself so if a friend bought me one I would think of it as a really thoughtful gift as it means they have seen how tired I am and never have time to myself and thought about how to do something about it..!

I love your ideas though, especially the travel book / notepad & pen one! Must remember it! Really wouldn't thank you for a key ring though, no matter how lovely it was - hate them with a passion, lol!
