My sister is turning 30 and I'm stumped.Problem is I've made her so many things already.I mean I have known her for 30 years.That's a whole lot of years of homemade presents.

 

-She's a teacher but may not be for much longer.

 

-She has an almost 2 yr old son.

 

-She doesn't cook.

 

-I have made her plenty of bags/pouches, pillows,scarves and blankets.

 

-She doesn't really have any hobbies but she has become a runner recently.

 

Any ideas?Or has anyone just seen something really cute lately that you want to share?

 

Thanks for any help!

well even if she doesn't cook doesn't she still eat?  Etched glasses- etched water bottle/ water bottle carrier, pot holders (even take out is hot), cloth napkins (especially in one of your quilted baskets), table runner, cutsy embellished dish/hand towels.

How about a personalized necklace? With her son's and birthday on it, or with his birthstone. Clothes for running? Entrance fees for a half marathon?

gift certificate to her favorite resturant or clothing store... collection of nice candles or wine, a set of quality bath washes and salts, personalized towels... a trip to somewhere special with you like a resturant, a historic area, the zoo? a dress, concert tickets, organic cotton bathrobe, gourmet organic chocolates...
