What is a nice, inexpensive, gift for a sponsor on her 30th sobriety birthday?
My sponser will celebrate 30 years of sobriety this summer. She still attends at least 3 meetings a week, reads the meditations and BB every morning, sponsors several people, ect. She is such a good mentor and friend for me, and I simply adore her.

I'm not sure how to get some hints out of her without talking to her sponsor or husband behind her back.

Any suggestions?

1. Do you know of a good 12 and 12 store near you?
We have one nearby.
They have books and nice gifts there.

I have my eye on a large refrigerator magnet with the
Third Step prayer on it.
It would be a good daily reminder for me!

I'm waiting for their sale in a few weeks.

Good luck. :)

2. Well, after some discussion and suggestions, I decided to just ask her what she'd like.
Now we are looking at a dinner or coffee for her and her "pigeons". (The women she sponsors) She'd like to have her 3 daughters invited. I like the idea suggested elsewhere that we each write her a letter telling her how much she means to us and how we appreciate her. I think she'll love that.
:D

Enjoy your day with her.
