    Default QUICK! Help needed to find a 30th birthday present.

    HELLLLLPPP! My sister's 30th is on Sunday. It kind of snuck up (in a Mummy brain-fade kind of way) and I have nothing for her. I can't manage the shops with three, unless it's a specific get in, get out mission. So I need a plan...
    Any ideas of something a bit special for a 30th? She's uber fashionable and arty and has quite specific tastes (that are quite different from mine) so it's really hard to pick something personal that I know she'll like. SO STUCK!!!

    We're in Melbourne (she lives and works in the CBD) so if you can think of any experiences/tickets etc, that could work

    She just bought a house and is decorating (but not furnishing as she's going to rent it out)

    ??????
    Any ideas much appreciated. xo

    Don't forget woolies have lots of gift vouchers.

    I'd love a magazine subscription if it were me. Check out mind food mag.

    Tix to a show?
    Restaurant voucher?

    Money with strict instructions to spend it on something she wouldn't normally buy?

    Some super ideas there! A cooking class? A hammock with a frame? I think I saw them in…Hmm. Big W? Bunnings? If you looked online, then called, to see if they had them, it'd be an in and out job.

    Thanks Calluna and thanks all for the ideas.

    I ended up getting her a voucher to a day-spa. She's going camping for 3 weeks over summer so I bought her a voucher to a place near where she's camping so when she's in desperate need of a shower and a comfy lie-down she can go spoil herself. I was a bit sad to not get her something special to keep as it was a milestone birthday, but she seemed stoked.



    Oh, and Olive, I looked up Hard to Find. Ooooooh such lovely stuff, thanks for the tip!
