One of my good friends has a birthday coming up this weekend, and I’m really struggling with gift ideas for her. I normally wouldn’t leave this to the last minute, but in all honesty the month of March seemed to fly by and it kinda snuck up on me. For reference, she is in her late 20s and has a professional career designation (so very put together, accomplished, dresses well, etc).
In the past we usually just take each other out for dinner or exchange a nice bottle of wine for our birthdays, but I’m looking for alternative ideas that I may not have thought about. She also just got engaged, so I was wanting to give her something a bit more thoughtful as this is a pretty special time in her life.
I’ve thought about clothes or jewelry but our tastes are a bit different, and I would be worried that I’d pick something she would hate but would be too nice to tell me.
Thank you in advance!

Try Greetabl. You pick out a box design & a little gift to go inside. Then you can personalize the box with pictures & a note. It’s super cute.
It may be a little more low budget than you were thinking, but it’s worth a look.

I’m a big fan of quality time gifts – going to a show or an event together. I recently bought a friend vouchers for a wine tasting class or have done flower arranging or spa days/manicures and drinks. Plus it means no things to have to store! Haha

Even a special bottle of champagne. We came home from our engagement party with 10 bottles of champagne. Lol people know we like the finer things in life.
