One things my friends have loved is a gift certificate to a "beading shop".

We have one in Ausin where you go in and get help designing your own jewlery. I usually get them a gift certificate and then we go together (with a stop a starbucks) and spend some time together. This way I also have an excuse to make myself something new.

You can do the same thing at a ceramics shop... design plates, coffe mugs.....

What about Build A Bear? I know a lot of people do it, but when I got one from my boyfriend and read all the stuff he had to do to make the bear (turn around 3 times, kiss the heart before you put it in, hug the bear ect.) it made me feel so good that this hard edged man would act a fool in front of a bunch of kids and people (it was at Christmas time so it had to be packed!)

Also a complete gift basket of THEIR favorite things instead of just buying one. Like everyone knows I love Hello Kitty, my Brit Brit, and anything pink and fashionable so like GIANT gift basket full of HK gifts, some clothes for Brit and maybe a purse and tee shirt shows they know me...

Just wondering if it was a 'typo', but $25 for A bar of soap? Isn't that a little high, or am I not in the real world???

yeah i just got my bar of soap it was 23.80 dollars including tax..its home made and its all organic ingredients so its kinda high but the smell is soo delicious!! (like the nice smelling candles) i made mine from lemongrass with cornmeal and i want to eat it..the price is kinda high but i think it was worth it..

Mee...

My daughter makes her own soap and believe you me she doesn't spend that much money for one bar, maybe a whole batch! You may want to look into making your own; lots of fun, you control the ingredients and save some bucks to spend you your fur-baby!

my bday list includes:

taking the consule out of the expedition and making it look like a bench seat...sorta.

japanese hair straightening....just in case your friend has frizzy or curly hair and wants it straight (costs around $500 and up, depending on how long your hair is)

magazine subscriptions to Modern Dog and Fido. i already have one to Bark--its great. oh, and Animal Fair is great too.

pink boxing gloves

scavenger hunts are REALLY FUN!!

you can also do a car rental for her dream car or something.

gambling is fun.

i hope these help. :D

Couldn't think of anything before, but now "By George, I think I've got it"

BUY her a ticket for the Oprah show !!!!!!!!!!! Yes !!!

Maybe she will get a new Pontiac G6 !

Actually Nicole it sounds like you have 'been there, done that' with gifts for your friend. You have done all the neat stuff.

Don't know if she lives in Illinois where you do, if she does, you could go to Oprah together...double treat

Hope I'm not too late with my suggestion.

Actually Oprah show tickets are free. But it would be a fun "girl" day.
We have a group that have been wanting to go for a long time. But she only tapes during school months, and on Tuesday and Thursday or something like that, so it is hard to take off to go. Most of us that want to go, work together, or at least at the elementary and middle in our small town. It would be impossible to find enough subs for all of us at the same time, so we have to find a vacation day out of school to go. So far, hasn't worked out.

HMM. Oprah show idea.....
Making friends in online forums....
Hmmm....alll of us showing up at the Oprah show with our fluff-butts!!!

(going to move this suggestion to the maltese meetup topic.)
