My bestfriend is flying up to stand in for me in my wedding.  I am looking for an appropriate gift for her.  I really appreciate all she does for me.  She recently separated from her husband of 35 years so funds are tight (he's been a poop and with holding funds from her too).  She's into Nascar, sports and Starbucks.  I was thinking of giving her a $100 gift card from Starbucks which I know she'll enjoy but it just seems so impersonal.  Any ideas?

man that's a great idea but honestly I just don't know.  She lives in a small rural town in So. Cal.  Her favorite team is the San Diego Chargers but I'm not sure I can afford pro football tickets.  



I don't see her using a knife......Now me?  Great wedding gift!

Yea, I love going to see the Walla Walla Sweets (not sure who they farm team too) play.  I'll check into it though, she would enjoy that.  Thank you for the idea.

For giggles I looked them up and in the cheap seats (which they label family fun) they go $390 each.    Totally ridiculous.  I ran into this the year before, my honey's bf is a big cowboy's fan and the Cowboy's played Seattle in Seattle, we thought we would give him tickets to the game for his birthday, yea, we gave him $200 bucks and he stood out side for four hours haggling with a ticket shark.  He got in though.

Yeah, I wanted to see a professional game at least once in my life but once I looked at how much it costs that was off the old bucket list.

I'm not a huge sports fan but sounds like the sports wear and PJ's sounds like a great idea!

Congrats on the wedding!! I've never been married so I'm a bit jealous!
