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!
A nice selection of loose Tea with Cup/Pot & Strainer.

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 insideA unique coin purse with 30 one dirham coins in itA 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
Great! she loves getting her nails done - any salons near Umm Sequiem 3 ?

Have just had a b'day and a friend gave me a voucher for a French manicure. I was delighted.
cyclone - she lives here. Around 150 dhs ish
Is she here or abroad? And what is your budget range?
A gift voucher for a massage / facial / mani or pedi - I know that's what I would like...
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!
Hi, my friend will be 51 and she is fun loving etc. etc. but I just don't know what to get her - I've never been one for buying presents for friends so I just find it a little difficult! help please, thank you!
