    It is a good friend's 30th birthday soon and I was hoping you might be able to suggest some gift ideas for me! We have been very close friends for 14 years but our interests have changed in recent years and she enjoys things that I know little about. She enjoys cycling, climbing, gardening, drinking gin, sewing, science and cooking and is interested in the environment and ethical products. If anyone could help me out, I would be really grateful! I don't really have a specific price bracket in mind- I just want to find her something lovely.
    Thanks in advance!
  2. Activity Day gift tokens are good (like a spa day). Red Letter days is one company.
    Also, www.notonthehighstreet.com had some nice quirky gifts, maybe to do with relaxing with w g&t in the garden!
    Try Nigels Eco Store (online) for ethical gifts.

    Why don't you buy her a gift voucher from
    She can then go online and choose fabric, threads, tools etc.

    Goonergirl, I have to say that your friend has a wide variety of interests which all seem pretty easy to cater for . . . . . . I find it's people who have no interests that are really hard to buy presents for.
  6. no idea of costs or where to find them, but have heard great reviews about 'cookery schools'. A friend went to Nick Nairns and had a great time!

    These are such lovely ideas, and not ones I would have thought of! Thank you very much! X

    Just a thought - I have a friend who is also into cooking and she raved about a special 'tasting menu' night she went on - I think the chef was Michael Caines. She said it was absolutely brilliant and special.
    I should think lots of chefs offer similar experiences.
