    Help! Gift Giving Question!!

    We just drew names for our department office party, and of course I picked the woman who has everything! She's an attorney's wife so she lives pretty well. The limit of the gift is $10.

    Can anybody recommend a gift I can get the woman who has everything? I was thinking of a Yankee Candle but she had a stroke once and lost her sense of smell! So that's out of the question.

    Help!

    A picture frame?

    Bath set? But I don't know you said she lost her sense of smell.

    Does she collect anything?

    How about a white cultured pearl necklace? You can't go wrong with real pearls. I saw these on TV the other night. Depending on when your gift exchange is, if you wait a couple days to order, they'll probably do free shipping again, too!

    I've bought from them before and love them. People tell me I'm like the Wendy's commercial. I'm their unofficial spokesperson.

    Thanks for the good suggestions. She already has pearl necklaces. The picture frame could be a good idea...I'll have to think about that one. The bath set is a definite no...this woman wears Chanel #5 and I think a $10 bath set would be chucked (though I'd use it).

    Keep em coming.

    Ummm....
    A nice Pen or stationary set.
    A small Godiva chocolate set. Sams club has one for under 14 dollars I think.
    A nice hand lotion.
    Some pretty kitchen towels.
    A Christmas table cloth.

    Like wrapping paper and a bow's going to stop me??!! Hahahahahaha.



    I like the scarf idea alot. She wears scarfs. I'll have to go to TJ Max or Marshall's and look at the scarfs.

    A bathing gift basket would be a great choice. They come with soaps, loofa sponge, bubble bath, etc.

    unless she's chesty... then she'll look at the scarf like its an alien set forth into this world to make people look MORE up at the chest region! LOL

    I have been given a dozen scarves as gifts over the years and they have never even been unfolded.

    But glad to hear she does wears scarves. I wish I could.... I just feel too too conscious in them.

    I'd go with a pretty photo album or picture frame! Every woman like picture frames and you can never have too many albums! Especially pretty ones that you'd like to set out for everyone to see!
