gift idea for a very busy young woman

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i dont post often, been too um busy myself,

but my daughter's 29th birthday is coming up and i want to get her something to make her life easier, but i'm drawing a blank

she just started one job a week ago and is starting a second full time job tomorrow

i know what she really wants and need is SLEEP!
can't help her there...
and after that, TIME to do things besides work!!
i can't help her there either

i dont have a lot of $$ to spend* so i want to get something that's not totally frivolous
but not completely practical either...

any ideas?

(*would like to keep this under $50)

Well, I know my household chores often build up when I get really busy...do you think she would appreciate a day where Mom comes in and helps her get those chores done, so that maybe she can rest instead of having to do them?

Or maybe just a mom and daughter day out, take her out and go window shopping or something and have fun together so no one's thinking about work?

How about a new wallet or a purse, or a nice mirror compact, or a nice neck scarf?

Some chocolates with an attached gift card/certificate to her favorite restaurant, book store, coffee shop?

Since she is so busy she might enjoy a gift card to a day spa for whatever amount you are able to spend. Don't put it toward a specific thing then she can choose what is to her liking and take an afternoon to relax.

My daughter is the same age and very busy also. (Working and studying for her board certification) She really likes gift cards to her favorite restaurants. Just an idea. I have a hard time getting the right thing for my daughter but these have been a hit. They also like cash!

Does she still love Mom's cooking? Maybe you could give her the gift of time -- by making some homemade frozen dinners for her! You could get microwavable trays and fill them up with all her favorites... so she won't have to cook for a month or so.

But you'd want to give her something she can unwrap, too -- some inexpensive piece of jewelry or a picture frame, maybe...
