Melbourne MeFites – help me find a gift I can buy online for a Melbourne-dwelling friend.
A friend of mine is going to give me a pretty good computer she no longer uses, and won’t take any money for it. It’s a very generous gift, and I’d like to get her something to say thanks.
She lives in Australia, I live in Scotland, so I want to buy something online (we’ll meet for a few hours on Saturday as she’s passing through the UK, hence the laptop handover).
I’m looking for something, probably value up to about AUD200, though that’s pretty flexible. i.e. it’s not going to be near the value of the computer, but generous enough to be a real treat for her, not just a small token.
She’s just moved to Melbourne (from New Zealand, though she’s originally a Falkland Islander) to be with her fiance, so top candidate at the moment is restaurant vouchers for the two of them to have a nice meal with wine. (I wondered about this place
, not least because it’s in a converted woolshed, which is a kind of nice Falklands link – that’s a place with a lot of woolsheds).
Other activities, spa-type suggestions would also be great. Useful info: she's: mid-30s, pretty stylish, loves shopping for clothes and jewellery, still getting to know and explore Melbourne.
