Any Ideas?

A while ago, a blogger friend of mine, Atomic Lola, wrote about her spring break visit to see her brother. When she arrived, her brother and his girlfriend had made up a goodie basket for her and decorated the guest bedroom to make her feel like she was a special guest and to enhance her spring break feeling. I thought this was a super cool idea, so I would like to do something for Siren when she visits next week.

Any ideas?

She's bringing her boyfriend for their first vacation together, so I thought I could get them a bottle of wine and some glasses, along with some chocolate to compliment the wine, but after that, I'm stuck. After the craziness of the past couple of weeks, I really want her to be able to relax and have a good time. However, I don't have tons of money to spend on a gift basket. Please help!

since you've been friends for years, can you print out a couple of photos of the two of you together over the years and put them in a special album? I love that kind of stuff :-)

Little soaps and shampoos in the travel section are alwys cool ideas. Candles too.

I like carma's idea. Or even a picture of the two of you in a picture frame.

Its really the personal thoughtfulness that counts. So whatever you do - it will be so very nice.

what a neat and glasses is a great start. I love the above ideas of the photos and candles as well.

Maybe a hand written letter to her about how much your friendship means to you.
