Is she girly? You can create a gift basket at Bath and Body works, and they’ll help you pick things out and shrink wrap it for you.

what about a baking/decorating class? I’m taking one next week that was $60 and the other one i’m taking is $50.

I’d be insanely pumped if someone gave me that!

Do they have a culinary institute near you? 

If you know what kind of books she likes to read, Amazon and Barnes and Noble will generally recommend other, similar titles – and you can always tuck a gift receipt in there so she can exchange them if they aren’t her cup of tea.

What about a good cookbook to go with some baking/cooking supplies?  Either a general one or a specific one for baking or a particular type/style of cooking she likes to do.  Then you can get baking utensils to match.

Do you know what kind of books she likes to read?  You could get her those, but keep the gift receipt in them just in case.  That shows a bit more thought than just the standard gift card.

How about any PJ’s or comfortable clothes that she would wear?  I love getting new PJs at Christmas, or comfy workout clothes.

Does she like a particular make-up brand or nail polish or shampoo/conditioner?  Those are always good “fillers” when you need a few extra things to add in.

I like to do themes for people, so what about a baking/cooking theme? You can get her a basket and fill it with baking/cooking supplies, (apron, mitten, rolling pin, cookie pan, cookie cutters, measuring cups, wooden spoons, etc) and a cook book. You can even sign her up for a cooking/baking class.

If you have a Tuesday Morning store near you, they have really awesome baking/cooking stuff at a fraction of what is really costs.   I cook and bake a ton and it is one of my favorite stores.  I do love the chef coat my brother gave me.  It was just a cheap one from a discount store but it does keep me clean.

What about a cute apron, a couple of baking books (I LOVE Hello Cupcake even though it’s a decorating book, it would likely be great for her for her daughter’s birthdays) and some baking utensils? There are some adorable spatulas at Crate and Barrel with cupcakes on them, I’m dying to go get them!

I love the idea of the baking/cooking/decorating class too!
