Help! My sister's birthday is coming up fast.
I never know what to get her, because we're nothing alike. She'll be 22. She has expensive and girly taste, if that helps at all.

:shrug: I'm lost.

3. You sound like me.
I stopped the B-Day gifts a long time ago with my brother's and sister's.
Mostly I send an e-card to one sister. That's it.
If you live near her, how about some cookies or a cake, homemade?
A small plant? Does she have her own place?
My local video rental has dvd's for sale for @ $5.00!
Movies are always good or a good book!

You aren't giving me much to go on. What are her interests?

5. I live in the same house (we're both at home while going to school)
Anybody else I'd make food, but she's the sort to look down her nose at a homemade gift (and anyhow, she always complains that my cooking "tastes like health food" even when I make brownies or something.)

Her interests are: boys, cheerleading, clothes, that kind of thing.

11. What about an I.O.U.?
For doing research for a paper or something she needs done for a class?

That would leave her some free time to pursue the boys & cheeerleading. :rofl:

They often have nice jewelry and knickknacks for very reasonable prices. The discontinued area is a good bet, too! :hi:
