Any suggestions for a BFF's 17th B-Day Present?

Hey guys! I've been looking all over for something for my BFF. We are really close but lately she's been kinda weird and her B-day is at the end of the week so I need help finding something fast. I was thinking of going by her house to drop it off this friday and then maybe take her out for lunch after I finish work. If you guys could give me some suggestions, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

*** I don't want to get her a gift card cuz, to me that seems rather impersonal. I was thinking of just getting a couple of things from thebody shopp and such and just wrapping it up in a gift basket but I dunnoe! I am really frustrated. I don't see her too alot so I want to get her something really nice. I don't really care about the money. I'm willing to spend about 70 or 80 bucks. Plz help

    If you are willing to spend $100 you could get her jewelery. Some necklace, gold bracelet, or ring. Go to Kohls or Department store and check out their jewelry. they have fun, young and modern things, that won't look like it's your mom's or grandmom's jewelery. My BFF got me a daisy necklace with a tiny diamond in the middle, when I turned 18. I loved it, and it was nice to see that my BFF didn't spend 50 bucks on little gifts that aren't so sentimental. i felt so special that she thought more of me to get something special.

    Tickets to a concert she'd like to attend would be a great gift if that's feasible. Or if she doesn't already have one, an MP3 player, digital camera, or cell phone would be good too and I think each one could be found in your price range.

    Teenage girls are pretty particular about jewelry, but if you're sure you know what she would like then maybe you could get her a necklace or earrings. If she has a computer maybe she could use a cordless laser mouse or a new web cam. And I'm sure there's a certain CD or DVD she's been wanting to get.

    Think about what she likes to do too. Does she read certain types of books? Does she like to sew or crochet or anything like that? What about sports? (i.e. a new tennis raquet) Would she like a certain type of computer / Play Station / XBox game? (Sorry, I don't know what system she has, if any...) Maybe a t-shirt with her favorite band on it? Anyway, those are just some suggestions. I hope you can use them to come up with an idea that will fit her perfectly!

    If you have pictures of her having fun at events or activities you two have shared that would be memorable to her you may want to include that with another gift. Save the picture for last..put it in a nice frame. That personalizes gift giving. And/Or if there was a joke between the two of you get her something related to that...just for kicks. You will make her laugh and cry at the same time..how awesome is that!

    Honestly, think about what you wish she would do for you!

    If she likes movies, take her out for a movie and ice cream, my best friend did it for me and we had a blast talking about movie hunks.

    OR

    take her out to get a mani-pedi, or maybe ever a facial. secretly invite some of your close friends and have a sleepover.

    OR

    spend the day making her favorite cake, followed by a homemade birthday card. (big, sparkles, and heartfelt)

    Good Luck!!
