I’m having trouble coming up with practical gift ideas that aren’t so generic or downright insulting LOL.
Some of my idea include nice smelling hand soap from Bath & Body Works, Dr Scholls Fast Flats, Foot Petals (shoe comfort stuff) … but these I’ve done before. Anyone have any other ideas for my girls’ birthdays coming up soon? Preferably withint $20 – $30?

I got a colander (I am to lazy tonight to check if that is spelled right) once that was filled with everything I needed to make a spagetti dinner and I still love that gift. One of the most practical and one I use all the time is the colander and pasta spoon.

gift cert for oil change/car wash? put together a simple spa/bath set or manicure set? I’m at a loss otherwise

Heat mats for hair straighteners – http://thepinkcompany.ca/index.php/featured-products/pinkmat.html
Those things that go over heels, so the spikes don’t pierce grass.
Love the “meal kits” ideas, esp if you throw in a candle or two 🙂
Where do you live – is there a Tiffin project for takeout, or similar? http://thetiffinproject.com/ (Vancouver)

Mid to late twenties. =)
They’re both kind of downtown gals. They like the nightlife and they’re both really outgoing.
@kerensa: I like the tea idea for the winter holidays!
@pigzfly: Oh! The straightener mat is a great idea!

I have found it is easy to put a gift together if you choose a “theme”. For an upcoming friend’s birthday (she is getting married next year and her color is purple) I am giving her a nice purple robe – she can wear it while getting ready on her day, some nice comfy fuzzy socks and a nice purple pajama set.
Another friend’s birthday is coming up too and I know she likes wine so I am giving her a bottle of wine she likes, a drink themed picture frame, and wine glass charms.
